* Marc Summers. That the man hosted freaking ''Series/{{Double Dare|1986}}'' for seven years and ''Series/{{What Would You Do|Nickelodeon}}?'' for two is a testament to his [[MemeticBadass willpower]] and unlike Mandel, he was not afraid of shaking hands with contestants and even allowed himself to get [[CoveredInGunge slimed]] and messy on more than one occasion. Although he ''did'' admit to being on pretty heavy meds during the shows' run to help him with it, and a relief when both shows went off the air. Yet to this day, he's still very approachable and open with handshakes and hugs. Seriously, we need to find a biggest balls award or invent one just to give it to him!

This goes well beyond simple fear. Realistic examples might refuse to touch anything that hasn't been extensively washed while more over the top versions can go so far as to fear the germs are sentient and conspiring to make them sick (though research has shown they ''can'' [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quorum_sensing work together]], and may even be capable of [[http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0889159109001962 messing with your head]]).

* ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'': When the Rash, the disease that caused TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt ninety years ago is still around and a threat to anyone who isn't TheImmune, one can't blame Iceland for putting the personnel of returning merchant ships in quarantine and the capital of Sweden for putting new arrivals through a decontamination process. Reynir is still this by that world's standards, as his parents greatly exaggerated the circumstances in which he could get sick. This came to light when he became a stowaway to a crew exploring a ForbiddenZone ridden with potential disease vectors and TheMedic had to use a variant of "no Reynir, that will not make you catch the Rash" on two separate occasions (granted that the second time, a PlagueZombie had bruised Reynir's arm and an actual scratch would have been a problem).

* Louise's classmate Jodi on ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'' is an extreme example. She refuses to even sit down on any kind of chair or seat, holding herself in the air if she has to. When Linda throws Louise an unwanted slumber party, she scares Jodi away by telling her that Linda has "sewer palm", "strep thumb", and her "whooping butt is in remission". In another episode, Louise threatens Jodi by holding her glasses over a toilet. When Tina stops her and cleans the glasses with her breath and shirt, Jodi runs out screaming.
