* The original ''Manga/DragonBall'' had Bacterian, a competitor in the first World Tournament arc who Krillin ended up fighting in the quarter finals, a fat slob who used his [[NauseaFuel horrible hygiene]] as an offensive weapon. He almost won, until Goku pointed out that Krillin doesnt technically have a nose due to his character design, letting him beat Bacterian based on a visual joke.

* Preston Payne, AKA the third Clayface, from ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' has the ability to cause people to melt with just a touch. Other Clayfaces have also had this ability. Unfortunatly for Payne, in his case it was because his flesh had become liquified and he was in constant pain, melting other people being one of the few things that could give him relief.

* The TropeCodifier: "Rappacini's Daughter", an 1844 short story by Creator/NathanielHawthorne. The title girl has been given a poisonous touch and breath by her OverprotectiveDad in a misguided effort to protect her from the evils of the world:
-->'''[[KnightTemplarParent Rappacini:]]''' What mean you, foolish girl? [[BlessedWithSuck Dost thou deem it misery to be endowed with marvellous gifts]], against which no power nor strength could avail an enemy? Misery, to be able to quell the mightiest with a breath? Misery, to be as terrible as thou art beautiful? Wouldst thou, then, have preferred the condition of a weak woman, exposed to all evil, and capable of none?

** Hell, just about ''every single Pokemon'' can qualify due to being able to learn Toxic via TM, which is the only move besides Poison Fang to inflict the badly poisoned status.

Not to forget, the first-listed Pokémon in the National [=PokéDex=] is the Bulbasaur line, who are ''Grass/Poison-type toads''!

** The Destruction school of magic most famously has the FireIceLightning trio as its main damaging types of [[ElementalPowers elemental magic]]. In some games, it also includes various Poison spells which typically deal little damage up front but continue to drain the health of the target for a duration afterward.
** Atronachs are a type of unaligned [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] which are essentially the {{Elemental Embodiment}}s of the elements they represent. The most common are the [[FireIceLightning Flame (also known as "Fire"), Frost, and Storm]] varieties. Flesh Atronachs are another variety. Depending on the game, they can emit a constant aura of poison-like damage, are immune to poison, and/or are actually ''healed'' by poison-based spells.

This is one of those "powers" that [[WhyAmITicking are difficult to miss]] when they first manifest, usually resulting in a DeadLittleSister at the hands of the Poisonous Person. Is it any wonder that they come to embrace BadPowersBadPeople and become villains? Of course [[PersonalityPowers they probably weren't nice to begin with]]. This kind of villain isn't just difficult to fight, but also ''very'' versatile in applying their power. They'll use the sweat from their brow to salt a field, fill darts with their poisonous tears, turn a bloody wound [[DefensiveFeintTrap into their enemy's demise]] by [[CombatSadomasochist cutting themselves]] to poison their blade. Some of them may even have [[PoisonIsCorrosive their poison be corrosive,]] [[HollywoodAcid if not throwing actual acidic stuff.]] Sometimes they may use [[ILoveNuclearPower radioactive poisoning]]. If their power is disease based, they make an excellent {{Plaguemaster}}. Or they might end up as a hapless TyphoidMary.
