* Goku from ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' tried this when he was fighting Android 19 and sick with his heart virus. It didn't end so well. Granted, he didn't even realize he -had- the virus at that point of time and only started coming down during the middle of the fight.

[[folder: Film ]]

* In ''Film/{{Locke}}'', the title character's cold is never explicitly addressed, but he chugs some cough syrup and blows his nose several times. This helps portray the difficulties the character is working through as he drives to his destination. It was thrown in because Creator/TomHardy just happened to have a cold while shooting.

* Ebenezer Scrooge has "a cold in his head" throughout the events of ''Literature/AChristmasCarol.'' This fact is only mentioned twice in passing, has no bearing on the plot (though it enhances the sense of chill and misery surrounding him), and is left out of most adaptations.
