* ''Videogame/DwarfFortress'': Some syndromes can act like this; the game doesn't have generic poison, instead simulating various symptoms and effects depending on the toxin applied, and in many cases the effects are unstoppable. The most consistent examples are Giant Cave Spider bites if you're anything relatively small and alive (paralysis will set in and suffocate you), and Giant Desert Scorpions if you're ''anything with a nervous system'' (which will be subjected to unstoppable necrosis no matter the creature's size, and has little to no effect until it all rots off completely and the creature instantly dies about a day later). Procedurally-generated creatures can of course have any of these and more, and when killer effects are involved the dwarf in question will usually die with no chance of saving some time later.

* A series and potentially fatal condition known as an aortic dissection, which started garnering attention in 2003 when one claimed the life of actor Creator/JohnRitter and, more recently, from the death of actor Creator/AlanThicke in 2016. [[https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/aortic-dissection/symptoms-causes/syc-20369496 As described by the Mayo Clinic]]:
-->An aortic dissection is a serious condition in which the inner layer of the aorta, the large blood vessel branching off the heart, tears. Blood surges through the tear, causing the inner and middle layers of the aorta to separate.

* ADDENDUM TO ABOVE ENTRY: In Funny/TheWolfOfWallStreet, Jordan and Donnie take the coveted "Lemon 714" Quaaludes [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methaqualone]] that had been in storage for a number of years. After taking one and feeling no effects, they take another pill each, followed by two more each, and so on. Jordan, not knowing They Were Already Intoxicated, left for the country club to make a phone call and soon found out that the Quaaludes had "developed a delayed fuse," resulting in him discovering "a completely new phase - the cerebral palsy phase" when the combined total of all the drugs finally hit. Note: though this entry should be located in Film, it is related to the previous entry, thus justifying its location.

* ''VideoGame/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'' has the fourth case's victim die of atroquinine poisoning. When atroquinine is ingested, particularly in a lethal dose, it takes fifteen minutes for the effects to kick in and kill the victim. Another person in the same case ingests it, [[spoiler:and this time it's the defendant, who collapses in the courtroom because throughout the court session she had been chewing on her nails; her nail polish, unbeknownst to her, had been laced with atroquinine. Fortunately, she subverts this trope because she didn't ingest enough to kill her, and she fully recovers the next day.]]

* An episode of ''Series/{{Quincy}}'' hinged on the killer using the "Dim Mak" quivering-palm technique -- he could "program" his victim to die at a specific later time just by setting up vibrations in the victim's body.

** The AI in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' takes this trope literally. It will not attack a character with the doom status since they're going to die of it anyway.
