* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'': Touma has the "Imagine Breaker", a right hand that can completely cancel any esper or magic power it touches. The [[BlessedWithSuck suck]] comes in the fact that it also cancels his ''luck'' -- turning him into a CosmicPlaything -- and leaves plenty of loopholes, like hitting any other part of his body or even cancelling out healing magic (though somewhat mitigated by a generous hospital and HealingFactor. No-one in the city has ever heard of such a thing because the ruler of Academy City keeps the information about his power as top secret; Touma acquires a lightning-wielding UnknownRival who is convinced that his ability to shrug off her attacks is a sign of some spectacular ability that he's holding back. Meanwhile, all the people in the magic side are well aware of him [[TheDreaded and are terrified of him]]. Additional "suck" comes in as this status doesn't stop people from wanting to use him, kill him, or both.
** Even more suck comes from the fact that it ''only'' cancels esper and magic powers -- essentially anything that's not normal -- and he has nothing else to back it up with. If someone decides to pull out a gun (and people ''have'' done just this) then he's just a normal defenseless teenager with no combat training. The only "[[CursedWithAwesome positive]]" side-effect is that, according to some characters, it also negates the red string of fate, allowing him to become a ChickMagnet. Even [[BlessedWithSuck THIS doesn't do him any favors]] because he [[CluelessChickMagnet has no idea about any of the girls]], and [[{{Tsundere}} considering]] [[ClingyJealousGirl their]] [[GreenEyedMonster attitudes]] and [[AccidentalPervert the situations]] his CosmicPlaything status pushes him into, he doesn't really look forward to meeting ''any of [[UnwantedHarem them]]''.

* In ''ComicBook/TheBooksOfMagic'', it is stated that Dr. Thirteen has this ability, which is why it is next to impossible to prove to him that magic exists, as it will disappear before he gets close enough to see it.
* Lord Joshua Coldrake from Franchise/TheDCU has the ability to outright negate any form of magic he enters contact with in a rather wide radius. Unfortunately, he's been [[ReassignedToAntarctica banished to a cold, barren landscape]]... because of ''certain'' [[NoodleIncident incidents in his youth]].

** In the ''ComicBook/{{New 52}}'', the Ravagers are immune to telekinesis. Superboy can still fight them with telekinetically thrown objects. At one point, Superboy notes that only their organic bodies are protected from telekinesis and defeats a Ravager by ''ripping his surgical implants out of his body''.

** In ''ComicBook/DoctorStrange'', the technology of the Empirikul, a religiously fanatical AntiMagicalFaction with a reach spanning numerous realities, is somehow able to erase magic wherever they invade.
** ''ComicBook/XMen'' comic books have two examples of mutants that disrupt/disable abilities:
*** The mutant Scrambler has the ability to disrupt any system with physical contact, including [[WalkingTechbane machines]], energy fields, powers, the nervous system, or even a living body itself, making his power a functional death touch.
*** Leech negates superhuman powers by his proximity, which makes rescuing him from mutant-hating thugs a ''very'' difficult prospect. It's not just mutants -- he's shut down ComicBook/SpiderMan, the ComicBook/PowerPack, and ComicBook/TheInhumans as well at different times, though there's one instance of his presence not affecting the ComicBook/FantasticFour. These days he can restrain his powers with effort, though you'll still be temporarily depowered if you touch him.
* In ''ComicBook/WhiteSand'', ''terken'' creatures - such as {{kaiju}} Sandlings - have skin that nullifies [[DishingOutDirt Sand Mastery]], rendering the animated sand inert on touch.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' and ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'', there is the Silence spell, which takes away the victim's ability to use magic entirely. ''Morrowind'' also has a weaker version of Silence called Sound, which makes it harder for mages to cast spells by creating a disorienting noise in their minds.
