* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'': It is not given much attention, but this is one of the reasons why the Nerevarine is sent alone into Red Mountain, aside from the prophetic and infiltration aspects -- [[spoiler: earlier in the main quest the Nerevarine gets infected with [[ArtificialPlague Corprus]] and then cured of the negative sides, which leaves them immune to ''all'' diseases, including Blight and Corprus.]] Since Red Mountain is the source of the Blight and Corprus...

* Mary Mallon, otherwise known as "Typhoid Mary", the infamous asymptomatic carrier of typhoid fever. What made her notorious was the number of families she infected because of her vocation as a cook, yet she never got sick herself. It took a few years (she was most uncooperative) to isolate that she had a concentration of typhoid in her gall bladder that her body couldn't eliminate but managed to work around. She was eventually quarantined twice: the second time permanently.

* In ''ComicBook/AllStarSuperman'', [[CasanovaWannabe Steve Lombard]] was immune to being turned into a Bizarro.

** The trope gets some degree of deconstruction, as the setting regularly shows the reader that the PlagueZombie monsters are still dangerous to those who are immune. In the prologue, immune non-combatants point out that they would die if the they went outside the safe areas. Later in the story, an immune character who took a PlagueZombie bite in place of someone who isn't immune develops an infection due to the fact that regardless of her incapacity to catch ThePlague, she still, for all intents and purposes, got bitten by a monster with sharp teeth full of nasty stuff.
