-->'''Kronk''': You know, in my defense, your poisons all look alike. You might think about relabeling some of them.

* In ''LightNovel/SaiunkokuMonogatari'', Shuurei is the subject of repeated poisoning attempts during her time as Imperial Concubine. In the most notable instance she's presented with a cup of poisoned sake during a banquet; immediately suspicious but aware that refusing the offer would be a grave insult, Ryuuki drinks it in her place, counting on his better constitution and AcquiredPoisonImmunity to get him through it. It still makes him quite sick for a while, and when Shuurei finally finds out, she's torn between being impressed that he basically [[TakingTheBullet took the bullet]] for her, and being angry at him for taking such a risk. (Not because she's got ''feelings'' for him, or anything - it's just that the civil war that would result from his death would be really bad for the people. [[{{Tsundere}} That's all, really!]])

* Subverted in ''Manga/DetectiveSchoolQ'', where a food critic is found dead in front of his almost untouched dinner. [[spoiler: There was '''zero'' poison in the food; the victim actually was strangled by the assistant he just fired in very humiliating circumstances. The meals were made with out-of-due ingredients to cover up details about the time of death]].

* In ''Manga/MythicalDetectiveLokiRagnarok'' Skuld tries to do this to Loki on two occasions, and fails miserably both times (in one incident, the person she brainwashed into delivering the poisoned food proceeded to explain what the food had been doped with immediately after delivery). She wasn't very good at assassination - [[InLoveWithTheMark her heart just wasn't into it]].

* ''Literature/TheBelgariad'': This trope is the reason members of the Nyissan court take poison antidotes daily. Sadi appears to be as good as any full-time assassin at it -- he muses once about having poisoned the soup course in front of his victims without being caught, and in the Malloreon he slips knockout drugs to ''an entire army''.

* In Creator/RobertEHoward's ''Literature/ConanTheBarbarian'' story "Literature/ShadowsInZamboula", Zabibi slips her lover something. It drives him into a frenzy, which is not the effect she intended. (What, exactly, she did intend -- well, the stories thrown about are numerous.)

* In ''Series/TheATeam'' episode "[[Recap/TheATeamS3E6DoubleHeat Double Heat]]", it's subverted as a part of the scheme. Hannibal, posing as a waiter, takes a bite of the sanwiches Mr. Olsen ordered up to his room and fakes choking, causing the Federal agents to hustle Mr. Olsen to safety, fearing a security breach. Hannibal, of course, is just fine and simply wanted Olsen out of harm's way.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AsterixAndCleopatra'', Edifice frames the Gauls by sending a poisoned cake to Cleopatra in the Gaul's name, which is quickly detected as being poisoned. Strangely, the cake was made without eggs or flour - the only non-toxic ingredient in the entire recipe was orange juice (for flavoring).

** In Russia, it is somewhat common for prostitutes to rob their johns in such a way. Their drug of choice for that is clonidine, an anti-hypertensic drug known there as clopheline which in combination with alcohol reliably knocks even a large adult man out, and may even kill if they are not careful with the dose.
