** Though there are many different bloodlines with many variations on their exact powers, this is commonly a trait of [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampires]], with the sole weakness typically being to [[KillItWithFire Fire-magic]]. Most known Vampire bloodlines are immune to magical paralysis and poison, while the Selenu clan of Hammerfell is highly resistant to the [[FireIceLightning elemental]] Destruction-school of magic attacks.

* Negapsychics from the Palladium RPG ''Beyond the Supernatural''. They, like almost everything else in Palladium's vault of IP, wound up in ''TabletopGame/{{Rifts}}''. In the original, a "real-world" psychic investigation/horror title, they were people with latent psychic powers who were avowed atheists or skeptics about the supernatural, causing their powers to develop into an anti-magic field. Even if they subsequently come to believe, they keep the ability. In ''Rifts'', not believing in the supernatural isn't [[FlatEarthAtheist really an option given its ubiquity]]. In this world, the Negapsychics just don't think it'll work on ''them''.

* There's a similar character in ''Over the Edge'', a grouchy stage magician who's a professional paranomal debunker. In a setting where there are psychics, wizards, aliens, ghosts, and other weirdness on every streetcorner, he'd be experiencing massive SkepticismFailure if not for his (completely unconscious) weirdness-cancellation power. He's also an {{Expy}} of the stage-magician and skeptic James Randi. Some RealLife "psychics" claim that having people with the wrong mindset around makes their powers malfunction, which Randi's eyes for trickery seem to do for a lot of self-proclaimed psychics.

* [[HalfHumanHybrid Nephilim]] in ''TabletopGame/{{Witchcraft}}'' cannot be affected directly by magic. Incarnates with the Magic Domain and Divinely Inspired Humans can spend Essence to counter opponents magical attacks.

** The Dreugh, a semi-intelligent race of [[FishPeople aquatic humanoid octopi]] (who also have a temporary land form), are immune to magical paralysis and poison, while also being resistant to many other forms of Destruction magic, with the sole exception of Frost.

* In ''Fanfic/OutOfTheCornerOfTheEye'', it's established that as part of their [[EldritchAbomination otherworldly nature]], the various Franchise/CthulhuMythos entities are devoid of chi, and thus immune to chi magic. At one point, the Chans find themselves in the presence of Dagon and Hydra, and find that just being in proximity to such creatures is actually suppressing their magic.

** The [[OurElvesAreBetter Dunmer (Dark Elves)]] also have an innate racial resistance to Fire magic, while the [[HornyVikings Nords]] have innate Frost resistance.

** The [[OurElvesAreBetter Dunmer (Dark Elves)]] also have an innate racial resistance to Fire magic, while the [[HornyVikings Nords]] have innate Frost resistance. Likewise, the Rieklings, a diminutive humanoid species native to [[GrimUpNorth Solstheim]] somewhat resembling "[[OurGoblinsAreDifferent ice goblins]]", have an inherent immunity/resistance (depending on the game) to Frost.

* {{Downplayed}}, but in ''Fanfic/ATriangleInTheStars'' Steven's shield and bubble inexplicably have this effect on [[spoiler: Bill's and other demons' magic; even the demons themselves as they can't break out, much like the unicorn hair barrier]]. It's downplayed because some attacks are reflected, not ceased to be.
** It's even shown that [[spoiler: thrown shields actually ''hurt'' Bill and waver his own shields, though how much of this is because Bill isn't at his full strength is unknown.]]

* Tenma Sukuna from ''VisualNovel/KajiriKamuiKagura'' can use his Taikyoku Law, Malignant Tumor Apoptosis, to negate supernatural phenomena or directly crush any supernatural being to the level of an ordinary human, completly sealing any supernatural power. His Law has only two weaknesses, it doesn't work on anyone with higher Taikyku level than him and if the target is a normal human he insteads gets crushed to the level of a normal human.

** The ''Manga/MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce'' manga introduced the Dividers, artifact weapons that aggressively break the magical links (magic is basically magical energy linked to a usable form in this setting) thus negating any magic they hit as well as any magical effects aimed at the wielder. As such, Dividers are extremely dangerous to mages and commonly referred to as {{Mage Killer}}s. Coupled withe the [[TheVirus Eclipse]]-based powers of the manga's villains, it borders on StoryBreakerPower.

* ''Manga/FairyTail'':
** Dragons were immune to all forms of magic, making them beings that humans had no hope of measuring up to -- eventually, Irene Belserion had to ''create'' a form of magic capable of harming them, and even then she needed the help of a dragon to do so. That's how Dragon Slaying magic came to be.
** [[spoiler:Acnologia's attribute as a Dragon Slayer is ''magic''. He was already impervious to most magic since becoming a dragon, but this revelation means that all magic, including the one that was specifically created to kill dragons, has minimal to no effect on him. If anything, it just makes him stronger]].
