* In the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series, there were some accusations that the US government created and spread the New Plague, not [[DirtyCommunists Chinese agents]] as was officially claimed.

By the revelation that the disease in question has been manufactured by [[Wikipedia:genetic engineering]], and possibly is ''distributed'' by humans. The untold amount of death and destruction has been directly caused by the foolish or malicious action of Man himself.

* The ''Literature/{{Tunnels}}'' series has Dominion, a strain of influenza genetically engineered by the Styx into a super-plague that will kill everyone on the planet's surface, allowing those living BeneathTheEarth to rise up and take their place.
* The descolada in OrsonScottCard's ''[[EndersGame Speaker For The Dead]]'' and ''[[EndersGame Xenocide]]'' is an artificially-created supervirus that systematically dismantles and reassembles the DNA of its host. Interesting in that while it's fatal--and nastily so--to Earth life, it is absolutely vital to the ecosystem of Lusitania, necessitating an approach to the disease that ''doesn't'' eradicate the pathogen entirely. [[spoiler: In ''Children of the Mind'', it's discovered that its deadliness is only a side effect; its true purpose is to terraform alien worlds to be more hospitable to its creators.]]

* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' novel ''Death Masks'', creating a magical plague like this is the objective of Nicodemus, using the magical power of [[PublicDomainArtifact the Shroud of Turin]]. Nicodemus isn't doing it for any reason beyond [[ForTheEvulz to cause chaos and death]], which he views as its own end.

* In ''Literature/TheEmpressGame'', the Sakien Empire created a [[{{Nanomachines}} nanotech virus]] as a bio-weapon, but it got loose and is doing a lot of damage. This caused the Empire to invade the planet of Ordoch, which had refused to provide a cure on the grounds that the technology involved could have created an even worse weapon, and the Empire had already demonstrated itself unfit to be trusted with that kind of thing. However, the Empire still hasn't managed to compel Ordoch to produce a cure, and can't hold the planet in the long run.
