* The ''Literature/BlackCompany'' series features a ChosenOne whose power is magic nullification. Interestingly, just like regular magic [[spoiler:it can be nullified by someone who knows the user's true name]], but we never get any real elaboration on its exact nature.
* ''StarWars'' [[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse Expanded Universe]]:

Added DiffLines:

** Several abilities will nullify damage of a particular attack type (often while granting a corresponding buff) - Flash Fire, for instance, nullifies all Fire-type damage, while Volt Absorb, Lightning Rod, and Motor Drive all will nullify lightning attacks.
** The ability Mold Breaker stands out in this as it allows the user to bypass any ability that would ordinarily prevent a move's normal use - in short, it's [[UpToEleven Anti-Anti-Magic]].

* Crowbar, a member of The Felt from ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' wields a [[TheyCallHimSword crowbar]] that negates and reverses any time-manipulation ability or effect. Since nearly every member of The Felt has some kind of time-related ability, this can be quite useful.

* In ''ComicBook/WhiteSand'', ''terken'' creatures - such as {{kaiju}} Sandlings - have skin that nullifies [[DishingOutDirt Sand Mastery]], rendering the animated sand inert on touch.

** In the OVA ''Anime/CodeGeassAkitoTheExiled'', [[spoiler:Leila Malcal, commander of the EU's Wyvern Squad]] appears to possess a natural version of the aforementioned Geass Canceller. The Geass sigil that manifests in her eye is blue, similar to [[spoiler:Jeremiah's]] Geass Canceller, and unlike the usual red of the other Geass users in the series. [[spoiler:Additionally, when Shin attempts to use his Geass to command her to die, her Geass activates and appears to deflect Shin's Geass, causing pain to him instead.]]

** Combining this with the Atronach stone can give a Breton complete immunity to magic for 30 seconds. Alternatively using the Atronach stone, Atronach perk and Miraak's Robes, Boots/Gloves can give you 100% absorption permanently.

** Golems also cancel out the magic of demons they touch. This is explained as being because it's a creature of earth, while demons are creatures of air and fire. Oddly enough, this creates an entire potential system of magic, antithesis to the dominant one, that is never really used. Of course, given magicians reluctance to explore any form of magic other than standard SummonMagic[[note]]which starts making more sense in book three were we see what happens when someone tries being "creative"[[/note]] and willingness to off the competition this isn't that surprising.
