* Creator/RoaldDahl's ''Literature/TheWitches'' features a non-lethal version in the form of the witches' delayed-action [[BalefulPolymorph mouse transformation potion]]. There's a chilling scene in the middle of the book when the [[MonsterLord Grand High Witch]] demonstrates the potion on an unwitting boy. Earlier in the day, she gave him a candy bar laced with the potion and promised to give him more candy if he met up with her at a specified time -- which just so happens to be the time that the potion is to take effect. He arrives in the room full of witches, expecting more candy, but then he sees the strange women's excitement and slowly realizes that they're anticipating something he doesn't know about. [[BodyHorror Then the potion kicks in...]]

** Pokémon has a number of timed-delayed attacks, and they're usually quite powerful to compensate. Doom Desire, Future Sight, Phantom Force and its big brother Shadow Force, and Brave Bird all take a turn to actually inflict damage, but the're almost all unblockable by the likes of Protect/Detect, and the recipient WILL feel it. "Badly Poisoned" is an [[StandardStatusEffects ailment]] that does progressively more damage as time goes on: pretty soon, it'll outrun any attempts at healing. A non-lethal variant appears in the move Yawn: on the turn it's used, it does nothing. At the end of the following turn, however, the recipient [[StandardStatusEffects dozes off]], leaving it at the mercy of its foe.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', if you're playing on Survival Mode, where Stimpaks heal much slower, and you get hit by a Mirelurk Queen's acid spray, even when in PowerArmor, you're as good as dead, as it will drain your health to zero faster than the healing items can counteract it.

* In ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'', the Monk class's skill Exploding Palm causes the target to [[LudicrousGibs explode]] if it is killed by Damage Over Time. Given that Diablo III is chock full of [[ShoutOut/DiabloIII Shout Outs]], the reference to ''Fist of the North Star'' was no doubt intentional.

There is a Legendary item called "Gungdo Gear" that causes this explosion to apply Exploding Palm to every enemy in the wake of the first, which can, if applied carefully, can lead to "You ''all'' are already dead".

* One of several potentially lethal species of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conus Cone Snails]], Conus Geographicus, is known as the "cigarette snail"- those unfortunate enough to pick up one of these pretty shells with an occupant are said to have just enough time left to smoke a cigarette before the snail's cocktail of toxins turns off their entire nervous system. There is no antidote, but some victims have survived by being placed on heart-surgery level life support until the toxin wears off.
