Added DiffLines:

* The monsters of ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' each have a weak point that takes double damage from precision weapons. For most of them it's [[BoomHeadshot the head]], but for the Behemoth it's its soft underbelly.

Added DiffLines:

* Modern warships are less armoured due the main danger to them switching from guns to missiles, aircraft, and submarine-launched torpedoes, and a tactical doctrine of intercepting the enemy vessel (or projectile) ''before'' it hits the ship. However, that has given them another weak point: disable a warship's sensors (mainly radar), and hopefully its radio communications, and a modern warship is as good as sunk when it comes to being a threat.

** The [[spoiler:Starkiller]] in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' has its own vulnerable point, but said point is encrusted in armour plates and gun turrets. [[spoiler:The X-Wing attack barely scratches it until the interior is rigged with explosives, opening a hole for the local AcePilot to get in and shoot stuff until it blows up.]]

** In ''Film/ANewHope'', the Rebels learn the Empire's Death Star can be destroyed by attacking a small thermal exhaust port, right below the main port. The exhaust port leads right to the main reactor.

** In ''Film/ANewHope'', the Rebels learn the Empire's Death Star can be destroyed by attacking a small thermal exhaust port, right below the main port. The exhaust port leads right to the main reactor. ''Film/RogueOne'' would later explain it as a deliberate weakness built by a rebel-sympathetic scientist in an attempt to sabotage it.

Added DiffLines:

* Subverted in ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' ''[[Comicbook/{{Supergirl 1982}} Volume 2]]'' #21 when Supergirl swoops down on several thugs and their leader commands his goons to shoot at her until they find her weak point because she HAS to have one. However, [[ShootingSuperman Shooting Supergirl]] works just as expected.

* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha''
** In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'', [[EnemyWithout the Darkness of the Book of Darkness]] will keep regenerating FromASingleCell unless its core is destroyed. [[spoiler:That said, this will only kill it temporarily as Reinforce's corrupted repair system will bring it BackFromTheDead unless she deletes herself as well]].
** In ''Anime/VividStrike'', this is how Vivio's [[RapidFireFisticuffs Accel Punch Infinity]] works, as she uses her excellent precision and accuracy to repeatedly strike her opponent at their vitals until they fall unconscious. [[spoiler:This is how Vivio beats Rinne in their rematch. While Rinne may have trained up her durability and pain tolerance to NoSell a direct punch to the face, that does little to prevent her from getting knocked out as Vivio delivers several magically enhanced strikes right at her undefended chin, jaw and temples in the span of a few seconds]].

* The BigCreepyCrawlies of ''Anime/BlueGender'' are covered in tough armor that renders them almost immune to small arms fire, but have a small tube (referred to as "the core") usually mounted on their heads. Shoot that thing and the bug drops. The only way to kill Blue without hitting the core is to use a HumongousMecha...unless of course you're [[BadAss Marlene]].

* In ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'', [[spoiler:[[BigBad Krall's]] [[ZergRush swarm attack]] does this to the ''Enterprise'', first slicing off her warp nacelles so that she can't escape and then cutting through the "neck" between the saucer and the engineering hull, further crippling the ship]].
