[[folder:Roleplay]]
* In ''Roleplay/DawnOfANewAgeOldportBlues'', a mysterious green fog settles over the high school and transforms into various smokey snakes that attack the children inside. While the end result is them getting imbued with superpowers, bringing the actual hostility of the fog into question, it's nevertheless an extremely painful and traumatizing time for the teenagers.

* London is known for its OminousFog, thanks to much of the city being in a large river valley known as the Thames Basin. Combine that with extensive industrialisation and [[NoOSHACompliance a lack of environmental regulations]] and you have a recipe for this trope. Smog conditions got bad enough to be a public health hazard fairly regularly, but the last and worst incident was in 1952: From December 5th to December 9th, London was enshrouded in what has come to be called the Great Smog of 1952. One of the worst pollution episodes in history, the Great Smog killed nearly 4,000 people, and hospitalized nearly 100,000 more from respiratory tract infections and hypoxia (the inability to get enough oxygen). This finally convinced the government that enough was enough, and the UK's first Clean Air Act was passed soon after.

*** The OminousFog phenomenon London experiences isn't just exclusive to the Thames Basin, it regularly occurs in other parts of the river upstream as well - Sections of countryside in the Home Counties the river runs through (Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire to be exact) often get particularly gloomy fogs and mists during the winter.

Added DiffLines:

* Two of Britain's deadliest railway accidents occurred in fog. In 1952, a sleeping car train from Perth to Euston ran past danger signals and crashed into the back of a local train at Harrow & Wealdstone, before a London to Liverpool express crashed into the wreckage, killing 112 people. Five years later, in 1957, an express from London to Ramsgate ran past danger signals and crashed into the the back of a local train at Lewisham, causing a bridge to collapse onto the wreckage. As a result of these accidents, new safety equipment was brought in across the network which would warn the driver if the signal was not at clear.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld'' features this throughout its first chapter: the action kicks off when Solomon Island was suddenly swallowed up by a mysterious grey fog, bringing with it a "siren song" that lured anyone who wasn't asleep or unable to hear out [[SuicideBySea into the ocean]]; by the time you arrive, the Fog has receded until it merely ''surrounds'' the island, but by then the drowned citizens have returned as zombies, accompanied by the Draug. Anyone trying to escape through the Fog invariably ends up dead. [[spoiler: It's later revealed that the Fog itself is an airborne strain of [[MysticalPlague the Filth]], and anyone who breathed it in has been infected.]]

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* ''WebAnimation/{{Dreamscape}}'': A flashback in episdoe 6 reveals that a black mist appeared in the vampire empire of the Underworld. It spread throughout the Underworld, then the surface world and cursed anyone it came in contact with. Vampire Lord, back then known as Vampire Knight, destroyed the fog and doing so is how he rose to the rank of 'Lord'.

* The Smog in UnLunDun is effectively a sentient version of the smog that covered most of industrial-revolution London, and as such, is ''very'' lethal. It is also able to possess people to an extent, creating hideous creatures known as 'Smombies' and [[spoiler:has been possessing Unstible for some time]].

** The most iconic set-piece of ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' are The Mists that hang over most of the Land, and this is often used as a [[DownTheRabbitHole means to pluck players out of their home world]]. It gets to a point where experienced players will run screaming from the slightest sign of mist. One of the nastiest salient powers mentioned in the ''Ravenloft'' supplement ''Van Richten's Guide To Vampires'' was the possibility of a Patriarch vampire using its energy-drain ability ''while in mist-form''. This was a particularly terrifying prospect under 2nd Edition rules, when there was virtually no way to fight back against a gaseous-form opponent.
** There was also a spell call Murderous Mist, which was a druid spell that created hot steam that could boil your eyes. Then again, there are the more classic Stinking Cloud, Cloudkill, and Acid Fog spells.
