* ''[[WhateleyUniverse Whateley Academy]]'': Two people have this as an explicit power, in addition to the many lethal abilities most of the student body possesses. Tennyo has a "Death Blow" that gradually [[DeaderThanDead obliterates you from existence]] and Gotterdammerung can [[DisintegratorRay unmake matter]] at a [[UpToEleven sub-subatomic]] level.

* In ''Literature/LoyalEnemies'' there's a caste among the elves, the liorel, who can kill by their touch. [[spoiler:Virra's one of them.]] Their treatment by other elves vary from "I don't want to have you nearby" to "Well, they can't help it."

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'': The ninja Kyodai Ken discovers this and promptly decides to turn it against our hero. However, the always CrazyPrepared Batman wears armor with a very small hole over the exact spot spot, preventing contact (which Batman figured out by looking at which spot hat been hit the most on Kyodai Ken's training dummy) in order to convince the villain that it doesn't work.

** There's also a magic card called [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=3883 Touch of Death]]. Unfortunately it's a waste of a good name, as the card isn't any good, and is incredibly unlikely to actually kill anything.

* Shiki's MagicalEye in ''{{Tsukihime}}'' allows him to see points of death. Simply poking such point with any sharp pointy object (like a kitchen knife or a sharpened pencil) will not only instantly kill said thing but also terminate its reincarnation cycle and any other metaphysical life functions it may possess. And this power is ''not'' limited only to living things, incidentally: he can "kill" non-living things as well. He once cured a person of poisoning by "killing" the poison.
