** 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.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': [[BlobMonster The Smooze]] from [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E7MakeNewFriendsButKeepDiscord "Make New Friends but Keep Discord"]] is both immune to magic blasts and can keep ponies from casting magic if some of its slime gets on the horn.

* ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'': Those [[OrganGrinder music boxes the overseers carry]] produce a mathematically-cacophonous acoustic pattern that prevents mages from concentrating, leaving them unable to use their powers. This has the side-effect of causing a mage's subconscious / passive magic to go haywire, causing them physical damage. The overseers can literally ''play music that is so annoying that it kills magicians''.
** Bonus points for the Boyles' private orchestra, who have been ''trained to play this stuff''.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Season 4 episode [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E24EquestriaGames "Equestria Games"]] shows that, for the duration of said games, unicorn spectators have to go through gates (looking like metal-detector walkthroughs) that neutralize the magic of their horns.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Twilight Sparkle's barrier from the ending of [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E2TheReturnOfHarmonyPart2 "The Return of Harmony"]] completely negates [[RealityWarper Discord's]] magic within a certain radius. It even turns the checkerboard-print ground (ItMakesSenseInContext) back into normal grass when she lands.
