* Happens plenty of times in ''Manga/{{Ooku}}: The Inner Chambers'':
** [[spoiler: Hisamichi]] slipped poison into the food and drink of Yoshimune's older sisters and the closest rival to the throne to ensure that Yoshimune got the shogunate. She had to clarify that she did ''not'' do that to Ietsugu, as Ietsugu was an IllGirl and not expected to make it to adulthood.
** Tokugawa Harusada, mother of Shogun Ienari, is quite fond of doing this to pick off rivals and control people. Her MoralEventHorizon was when she [[spoiler: slipped poison into her grandchildren's sweets to kill them and turn her son's wife (Shigu) and favorite concubine (O-Shiga) against each other.]] What's worse is it's implied she did that because she was ''bored''.
** [[spoiler: However, Shigu and O-Shiga quickly figured out Harusada was behind those deaths and played a long game to poison Harusada in revenge. Part of that involved O-Shiga, now Harusada's taster, poisoning herself to ensure that Harusada would eat the poisoned food. She died not long after the poisoning finally incapacitated Harusada.]]
** Unfortunately, this left a nasty legacy on Ienari's reign: his concubines quickly realized poisoning rivals was a quick way to get ahead, with the result that only about half of Ienari's numerous children made it to adulthood.

* Occurs for a few of the murders on ''Series/MurderSheWrote''. In one case, the tampering just created a case of ''attempted'' murder, because another person actually killed the victim before he got to his poisoned brandy.

* Parodied and averted in ''Film/LemonadeJoe'', a relentless parody of TheWestern. Hogo Fogo has kidnapped [[DamselInDistress Winnifred]] and plans to subject her to [[RapeIsLove a fate worse than death]], but is eating dinner in the saloon first. His brother, the less evil saloon owner, says he thinks Hogo's disgusting. Hogo opens his ring, puts some powder into a glass of water, and mixes it in. It looks like he'll try to make his brother drink it; [[spoiler:however, he then drinks it himself, and burps. It was antacid. He keeps eating his dinner, glutton that he is.]]
