* ''Series/TheLastShip'': Most of humanity dies out as a result of a SyntheticPlague, with the eponymous ship going on a mission to develop a cure. In the second season it becomes apparent that a lot more people have a natural immunity than previously thought. They start a cult that portrays them as the "chosen people" and set out to kill all non-immunes, led by two immune British brothers who were the only survivors of the nuclear submarine they both served in.

* In ''VideoGame/DeusEx'', JC Denton tests positive for [[ThePlague Gray Death]], but shows no signs of infection. [[spoiler:It's because the Gray Death is a [[{{Nanotechnology}} artificially created nano-virus]] and JC's [[{{Transhumanism}} nano-augs]] use the same hardware architecture. He's already eyeballs-deep in such nannites. Presumably, his brother Paul is similarly (not) affected.]]

** It's [[{{Fanon}} commonly believed by fans]] that all of the protagonists are immune to the T-Virus and its various strains. The actual games suggest that it's more a case of GameplayAndStorySegregation; aside from where it's a plot point, like in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil3'' and ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilRevelations'', the story basically presumes the characters ''never'' get bitten or scratched.

** Sherry Birkin is more or less kidnapped by the US Government and put under constant surveillance because she is immune to the G-Virus due to the events of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2''.

** Jill Valentine is implied to be immune to the T-Virus after being cured of her infection in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil3''. [[spoiler:This works ''against'' her when she's kidnapped by [[BigBad Albert Wesker]] and the antibodies in her blood are used to improve the Ouroboros virus.]]
** Jake Muller is completely immune to the effects of the C-Virus [[spoiler:because he is Albert Wesker's son and was concieved after Wesker was juiced up on the virus that gave him superpowers.]]
** Sergei Vladimir has a natural immunity to the T-Virus and was used as the genetic model for Umbrella's Tyrants.

** Jill Valentine is implied to be immune to the T-Virus after being cured of her infection in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil3''. [[spoiler:This is confirmed in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'', when it's noted that after she got kidnapped by [[BigBad Albert Wesker]], she turned out to be useless as a test-bed for T-Viral experiments due to her innoculation back in ''3''. However, in the same game, it also works ''against'' her when she's kidnapped by [[BigBad Albert Wesker]] and her, as the antibodies in her blood are were used to improve the Ouroboros virus.virus and this made Wesker decide to brainwash her into serving him as TheDragon rather than just experimenting on her.]]

** Sergei Vladimir is a variant; he's one of the one-in-ten-million who has a natural immunity to "total genetic compatibility" with the T-Virus and was used as the genetic model for all its strains, which means that infection doesn't turn him into a TechnicallyLivingZombie, but one of Umbrella's ultimate {{Super Soldier}}s, the Tyrants.

* In ''Manga/AnatoliaStory'', Yuri proves to be immune to the plague ravaging the Hittite Empire when she spends an extended amount of time tending to the sick. Given that she's from modern times, Yuri believes her vaccinations have granted her immunity, while the people of the ancient time period just take this as further proof that Yuri is blessed by the gods. (A bit of ArtisticLicense there: the historical plague that swept through Anatolia is generally agreed to have been tularemia, which is not a general vaccination and is only administered to high-risk groups due to dangerous side effects.)
