* ''Literature/FateApocrypha'' features the mythical [[Literature/TheIliad Achilles]] and [[Literature/{{Nibelungenlied}} Siegfried]] as Servants in the Grail War. Both are NighInvulnerable warriors save for their physical weakspots -- the famed heel in the case of the former, and the leaf-shaped spot in the back of the latter. [[spoiler:In Achilles's case, it turns out hitting the heel only ''removes'' his NighInvulnerability; he's still plenty badass even if it is hit.]]

** The film also offers another natural weakness for Superman besides the stand-bys of [[BroughtDownToNormal red sun energy]] and [[KryptoniteFactor Kryptonite]]. Specifically the atmosphere of Krypton was a lot thinner and Clark had spent his whole life in a much thicker environment.

When Superman gets close to Zod's terraforming machine in order to destroy it, he finds himself in a replica of Krypton's thinner atmosphere, which disorients and nauseates him.

*** In the new continuity, ''Film/RogueOne'' explains that [[spoiler:the flaw was deliberately added and laboriously hidden by a Rebel sympathizer, who was also the one who fed them the information they would need to exploit it. The sympathizer knew that the Empire would eventually build a perfect Death Star even without his engineering prowess (something they would later do in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''), so he accepted their [[AnOfferYouCantRefuse "offer"]] to join the Death Star's engineering team in order to plant this flaw and sabotage them.]]

** A few Fruit users have additional weaknesses that keep them from being completely invincible. Bartolomeo has an upper limit to the number of barriers he can create at once and his barriers [[MakeMeWannaShout cannot stop sound]]. Trafalgar Law's Fruit powers drain his stamina. Blackbeard's Logia powers draw in everything around him, so he can't dodge attacks. Some of Robin's techniques, such as making wings, are unusually tiring, and her generated limbs are considered part of her and thus make her vulnerable to any TouchOfDeath sort of power. [[spoiler:Big Mom's soul-infused constructs (known as Homies) are significantly more vulnerable to damage than she is, especially soul-targeting damage, and are also fairly disloyal and can be turned against her; either way, removing them from the equation can significantly neutering her damage output. On top of that, her soul-ripping abilities will simply not work on anyone that isn't afraid of her]].

* ''FanFic/{{Transcendence}}'': [[WrongContextMagic Arcane and fel magic]] both wind up being this to Ichigo. A clash between spiritual powers is straightforward; a stronger spiritual force will always triumph over a weaker one. Arcane and fel magics don't follow this rule, so Ichigo can't simply brute force his way past magically protected beings or tank spells the same way he can against spiritual and physical entities. Because of this, he has a much harder time dealing with magic users than he does with any other opponents.

* The security systems in ''VideoGame/TheSwindle'' become a lot less useful when the security stations are hacked: cameras shut down, doors open and drones deactivate. The tricky part, it has to be said, is getting there - the RandomlyGeneratedLevels mean they can be anywhere from "one bomb away from the outside" to "nested at the heart of a nigh-impenetrable labyrinth".

** In Volume 5 Chapter 12, we learn that Cinder lost her [[AnArmAndALeg left arm]] as a result of Ruby's TraumaticSuperpowerAwakening, so Salem replaced it with a ''Grimm'' arm. It can stretch, impale people, ''and'' [[PowerParasite suck magic]] out of her victims. Of course, this means it's vulnerable to Ruby's Silver Eye power, as a brief flare-up causes Cinder pain. [[spoiler: And Raven notes that by it's very nature it can't be shielded with Aura. "Aura can't protect that arm. It's Grimm.]]
