* One young patient on ''Series/UntoldStoriesOfTheER'' was so terrified of germs that he attempted to walk out and go home with a ''collapsed lung''. The ER doctor calls his father in to talk him into accepting a life-saving chest tube procedure, but the father turns out to be a germophobe too...

* Worry Bear in ''WesternAnimation/JuliusJr'' demonstrates this when he finds out that his friend Clancy has the cold in one episode. He quickly provides every one near him with a box of tissue and a hand sanitizer, then proceeds to pull a ''gargantuan'' bottle of hand sanitizer out of {{hammerspace}} for himself.

While battling {{Superman}}, he was thrown into a swamp, and traumatised by all the microscopic lifeforms crawling over him. * A-Pex from ''ComicBook/PowerAndGlory'' is the ComicBook poster boy of this trope. Allen Powell was already somewhat phobic beforehand, but the NIA's super-power treatments turn him into a full-blown mysophobe, even though A-Pex is an invulnerable FlyingBrick. In the first issue, he's masturbating with gloved hands while two prostitutes frolic in front of him; when they attempt to draw him into the action, he screams, “Who knows where you’ve been?!” [[AC:{{Film}}]]

She was placed in a test group instructed to avoid catching Adam's fake cold by any means possible, and by the end of that round she was the only one who had succeeded. * ''Series/NCIS'': Nikki Jardine, a minor character that's only been seen three times in the series. She shows a good deal of competency as an agent regardless.

Even in clean environments, they prefer the safety of their suits, and are reluctant to remove them without a good reason.

* The appropriately-named henchman "Germs" in the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' two-parter ''Feat of Clay.'' He opens doors using a handkerchief and is visibly squicked at going to a hospital. Batman exploits this entertainingly when interrogating him, threatening him with a jar he claims contains an incurable disease. Clayface leaves him practically catatonic after binding and ''gagging'' the little creep with some of his clay body. * Edd from ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy''. He put on plastic gloves AND a surgeon's mask when taking care of a sick Sarah. And when he caught her cold anyway, he claimed that bacteria strike the instant one's guard is down. Germs were also his first complaint when forced into a bathroom vent.

* Gus on Creator/{{Disney}}'s ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' developed this phobia in one episode, and eventually attempted to have the whole playground sanitized. * Chuckie in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' becomes terrified of germs. His father lectures him about germs with his bath puppets after getting himself dirty multiple times. ** This is the reason ''why'' Chuckie became germaphobic. Every time he got dirty Chaz would give him a bath and bring out the bath puppets, and then would tell an increasingly terrified Chuckie about how dangerous germs are. Given how Chuckie is afraid of almost everything, it's no surprise he became neurotic.

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! * Anyone who has ever taken microbiology will tell you that the majority of students in the class become paranoid about germs. Many overcome it a few weeks into the semester, but others don't. ** And heaven help you if you ever take a class on epidemiology. That semester will basically be ParanoiaFuel: The University Course.
