* In the post-apocalyptic "economic horror" RPG ''TabletopGame/RedMarkets'' some people are immune to the zombie virus, and others, called "latents", become carriers after being bitten and become zombies after dying for some other reason. Immunity or latency can be established at character creation or discovered after getting bitten and making a critical success or critical failure on the fort save, respectively.

** A drug called Suppressin K-7864 was produced by the DHQS from a mixture of immune marrow cells and antibiotics, it doesn't cure the Blight or prevent infection entirely, but instead turns the infectee latent. As a result Immune in the Recession under government control are subject to "medical conscription" for their cells and in the Loss cults like the Crusaders (who seek a cure) and the Holy Communion (who think the Immune are holy, and eat them) have a habit of claiming their own samples.

* In [[Literature/TheExpanse Cibola Burn]]'', an alien microbe blinds everyone on Ilus...except for Holden, who consequently ends up doing all the vision-critical jobs around the colony until a cure is found. [[spoiler:It turns out to be his anti-cancer drugs. When they ask if they can borrow his drugs to fix everyone else's vision, which puts him at risk of developing tumors, his response is essentially, "And then I can take a nap?"]]

* In ''NinjaBlade'', parasitic hookworms known as "Alpha-worms" end up infesting the whole city and turning them into monsters...except for the ninja protagonist Ken Ogawa, who for some reason seems to be the only one immune to being infested, and can thus safely battle all the enemies. This turns out to be because [[spoiler: he has ''toxic blood'' in him, which is deadly to any parasites that would dare try to infest him. And he has that toxic blood because his father, Kanbe, has it too. So the immunity is genetic.]]
