* Each character in ''VideoGame/OhSirTheInsultSimulator'' has a weak point in the form of an insult topic that when attacked with the right insult will deal much heavier than normal damage. For example, Sir Arthur Knight is vulnerable to insults involving modern culture and technology ("Your mother '''still uses Windows Vista''' and you '''never watched Star Wars'''!"), while Nigel Hogg is vulnerable to insults about weight and appearance ("Your face '''looks like''' a grunting sow and your father '''can't exercise because of''' your pimply arse!")

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987'', Shredder decides to build the ultimate combat robot to finally destroy the turtles once and for all and does this by building the robot out of indestructible material. He runs out when he's almost done and has to use ordinary steel to finish leaving a weak spot at the small of the robot's back. [[IdiotBall He and Krang then mention this several times in front of April.]] Guess what happens.

** This also applies to characters in the sequel ''Oh... Sir!! The Hollywood Roast''. Jane Blunt is vulnerable to insults about Britain and the monarchy ("'''The royal family''' had an embarrassing cameo in your last movie and your favorite director '''ruins the British accent'''!"), while Wisecrack is vulnerable to insults about his originality, or lack thereof ("Your therapist '''is a worse version of''' your mother and reminds me of '''a desperate cash grab'''!")

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' uses this trope the least of any game in the series, though it is still present. The individual dungeon bosses, Guardians and Hinox all have weak points that can be exploited, but the open-ended nature of the combat means they will still take damage and can be fought without utilizing the weak spots if the player goes in with the right equipment. Only the Stalus breed of enemies and the final boss require hitting weakpoints.

* To explain how humanity can actually fight giant robots in the ''Film/TransformersFilmSeries, the series ''FanFic/BlackCrayons'' uses this as an explanation. Cybertronians' armor can protect them from large blasts large-scale attacks, but small enough weapons can slip in between sections of their armor to get at the more delicate circuitry underneath. [[spoiler: Mikaela causes some serious damage to Laserbeak by stabbing him with a screwdriver, getting under the armor of one of his wings, and Annabelle causes similar damage- adjusting based on the relative size of both weapon and Cybertronian- when she hits Sentinel in the ankle with a piece of reinforcing bar.]]

*''Series/BandOfBrothers'': Lieutenant Welsh realizes that the armour on the underbelly of a German assault gun is considerably thinner. When his bazooka man's first shot hits the front of the vehicle, with no effect, he directs the bazooka gunner to hold fire until the SP's tracks are in the air as it climbs a hedgerow, exposing its belly.

* ''ComicStrip/{{Popeye}}'', whenever he had to fight Brutus, noted that all he really had to do was hit him in his "glass jaw" and instantly knock him out. He also once lamented that it's ruined many a good fight between the two.
