* In ''Manga/BlackClover'', [[BadassNormal Asta]] lacks any magical powers. However, when he unlocks his [[EmpoweredBadassNormal glimore]] he gains two BFS with AbsurdCuttingPower, as-well as Anti-Magic, that can [[AttackReflector send magical attacks back at enemies]], or straight up cut through them.

That being said, while Asta's swords can cleave through even the strongest magic spells like they were nothing, Asta himself is not magic-immune, meaning a clever wizard can still overpower him.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', there are actually two different forms of this, though the terminology is sometimes quite confusing.
** The "Soulless", who have no souls, are largely immune to the Warp, and are really uncomfortable for people to be around.
** The "Blanks" or "Paraiahs" have negatively psychic souls which actively cancel psychic abilities around them and physically harm psykers and Daemons with their mere presence. Blanks are incredibly rare and greatly valued by the Inquisition. Blanks have variable levels of power, and they use the same scale (I.E the greek alphabet) as Psykers do. Sigma is the weakest level for a blank, and these blanks will have a small field that can be overwhelmed by a psyker of decent power, while Omega is the strongest. There is no concrete evidence for how powerful they are, it's probable that they could shut down even Alpha level psykers and cause Greater Daemons and Daemon princes to undergo critical existence failure across an entire continent. It is ''also'' possible that there is a Omega-minus level of blanks much like there is an Alpha-plus level for psykers. It's almost certain that such a powerful blank/pariah would end up being killed at a very young age due to the sheer levels of revulsion that everyone will feel for him/her, and if they somehow survive to grow up, all he/she can look forward to is the inquisition and the necrons racing to get their hands on him/her. The term "untouchables" is used pretty much interchangeably for both types, just to add to confusion. Whether there's actually a difference [[DependingOnTheWriter depends on the writer]].

** The "Soulless", Blanks, also called "untouchables", "psychic nulls", or "pariahs", are very rare individuals who have no souls, are largely immune psychically negative, or even soulless. They are practically invisible to psykers and daemons who try to observe them using their sixth sense rather than the Warp, first five, and are really uncomfortable for people to be around.

Blanks are incredibly rare and greatly valued by the Inquisition. physically. Blanks have variable levels of power, and they use are measured on the same Greek alphabet scale (I.E the greek alphabet) as Psykers do. are: with Rho/Pi being the baseline human and the most powerful psykers ascending to Alpha. Sigma is considered to be the point where the "negative" side starts, and Upsilon appeats to be weakest level for somebody to be considered a blank, and these blanks will have a small field that can be overwhelmed by a psyker of decent power, while it descends all the way to Omega is the strongest. There is no concrete evidence for how (who at this point are almost a HumanoidAbomination). Blanks also lead a lonely life. They can send a fairly powerful they are, it's probable that they could shut down even Alpha level psykers into bouts of existential terror, and cause Greater Daemons and Daemon princes regular humans who are otherwise immune to undergo critical existence failure across an entire continent. It is ''also'' possible that there is a Omega-minus level the effects of a blank's presence will still sense something "off" about blanks much like there is an Alpha-plus level for psykers. and almost invariably hate and mistreat the blanks purely out of reflex. It's almost certain that such a powerful blank/pariah blank would end up being killed at a very young age [[BlessedWithSuck due to the sheer levels of revulsion that everyone will feel for him/her, him/her]]. Also, for reasons not entirely understood, Humans are the only species to naturally produce blanks, though other species can create them through other means.
*** While the above is essentially part of the lore of the universe,
and if sometimes appears in the (many) novels set in 40k, it was largely subjected to GameplayAndStorySegregation, with the rare example of the extremely elite Culexus Assassins, who are Omega-level blanks essentially rebuilt from the ground up to act as secret agents or a OneManArmy specialized in disrupting and eliminating psykers.
*** The Literature/HorusHeresy (sometimes called 30k), set in 40k's past, produced a secondary Imperial faction called the Sisters of Silence, a military force composed entirely of blanks and tasked with hunting down and detaining psykers. While [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute curiously similar]] to 40k's Sisters of Battle, rules were eventually released squads of them to be used in 40k.[[note]]Which was something of a pleasant surprise, since it was largely assumed
they somehow survive to grow up, all he/she can look forward to is would have been wiped out but the inquisition close of the Horus Heresy as an explanation why the din't carry over into the future.[[/note]] They have a few of the special rules and wargear of the necrons racing to get their hands on him/her. The term "untouchables" is used pretty much interchangeably Culexus, but are somewhat mroe generalized for both types, combat than just to add to confusion.

Added DiffLines:

** While Magic resistance and elemental resistance are capped at 85%, combining the two can potentially give a player 97% resistance to one element. Doing this with frost resistance means that impressive ice spell the enemy just used is now as effective as a snowball.

** Inverted in ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/9689/11/the-memoirs-of-a-reality-jumper/to-meet-a-goddess The Memoirs of a Reality Jumper]]''. Alex can't help but prostrate himself before Celestia and beg forgiveness for his "sins" because his lack of magic causes him to feel her divinity far more keenly than anyone else.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/ShadowOps'', one of the things all Talented can do is "suppress" the Talent of another. It simply involves hurling your power at the other, and the most powerful won't be able to use magic. Most SOC Talents of questionable training or loyalty have a "Suppression Lance", a group of powerful but untrained Talents, assigned to them to restrain the Talent should they go rogue.

This is in order to avoid any cheating.
