* In ''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!]])

* In ''TabletopGame/{{WerewolfTheApocalypse}}'', one of the Wyrm's most powerful servants is a global megacorporation named Pentex. Pentex has several subsidiaries devoted to alcoholic beverages, including King Beer, Ruskaiya Distilleries, and Dragon Valley Wines. The beverages they distribute are intended to physically and spiritually corrupt drinkers. King Beer is more likely than other beer bring out the worst behavior in its drinkers. King Spirits occasionally contain teratogens and [[OurDemonsAreDifferent banes]]. Thaw Beverages' soda potentiates any banes clinging to its drinkers. Dragon Valley Wines are carcinogenic, and its Pyrrus line of wines turns the drinker into a beacon for nearby banes and increases their vulnerability to [[DemonicPossession possession]].

* Spoofed in ''Film/TheAddamsFamily'': Fester had brought some cyanide with him when he moved in, with the implication that he'd poison them this way. When Morticia finds it, she just smiles and asks if he thought they'd run out of it. The implication is the family uses cyanide as ''seasoning''.

* Played with in the Onikakushi-ken arc of ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry''. Rena and Mion visit Keiichi and give him a box of ohagi as part of a club activity; however, upon biting into one of them Keiichi discovers a needle, convincing him that Rena and Mion are out to get him. It's later revealed that [[spoiler: Keiichi was delusional and hallucinated that there was a needle in the ohagi when Mion had actually put tabasco sauce in the ohagi as a prank.]]
** In another scene, Keiichi talks with Dr. Irie who becomes convinced that Keiichi is mentally disturbed and leaves the room to “make some black tea”. Keiichi starts to head towards the restroom, when he overhears Irie speaking to one of his employees, requesting he mix “isomytal and brovarin” (sedatives) into the black tea, hiding it under the taste of milk and sugar.
