** The weakest part of any 'Mech is the head (aka the cockpit), which has such low armor that one good hit will probably destroy it instantly. The issue here is that the head is ''really'' small and damned near impossible to deliberately hit on a moving 'Mech, so headshots tend to be the result of pure luck or an ''extremely'' stupid pilot sitting completely still and giving you the chance to line up such a shot.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Thief}} 2: The Metal Age'', both the larger and smaller versions of the "Children of Karras" have a glowing-red coal hatch on the rear of their boilers. Unless you have an implausibly large amount of fire arrows or explosive mines available, hitting that coal hatch with water arrows is the only way in the game to disable one. Humorously, this is {{Lampshaded}} in-game by an engineer's report asking what the hell the designer was thinking leaving the boiler so exposed like that, especially in a world where Water Arrows are well-known tools?

** Unless you count CherryTapping with your ''blackjack'', which can disable the larger model in a few minutes (due to their peculiar structure, with the right obstacle positioning it won't be able to do worse than be very noisy during that time). The designers evidently never thought of it.

* In ''Manga/VinlandSaga'' [[spoiler:Thorkell has a glass jaw, him out cold. Rarely happens, what with him being several feet taller than nearly everyseries.]]

* ''Fanfic/LastChildOfKrypton'': When Shinji was fighting Sachiel, he heard Rei whispering: “Destroy the red core”. He started to punch the core right away until it cracked.

** This actually works ''against'' WonderWoman during her battle with [[spoiler:[[{{ComicBook/X-Men}} Rogue]]]]. [[spoiler: Wonder Woman's combat training taught her to strike the weak points of the human body, including the face, the only part of Rogue uncovered. This in turn allowed Rogue to absorb some of Wonder Woman's power and temporarily stun her, giving Rogue an opportunity to absorb even more of Wonder Woman's abilities and give Rogue enough power to defeat her.]]

* The fight system in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' is turn-based, with a stop-the-needle QuickTimeEvent to attack opponents, but the fight against [[HumanoidRobot Mettaton EX]] is a {{Shmup}} in which you have to fire on the projectiles coming at you; during select rounds, you can also shoot Mettaton's "heart shaped core", which the CHECK command explicitly says is his weak spot. But all shooting it does is make his arms and then his legs fall off, reducing the maximum rating you have to reach to end the battle [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext because reasons]]. If your goal is to kill him, you can still attack during your turn, and he's just as susceptible to physical attacks as any other boss because [[spoiler:his ghost soul fused with his not-actually-invulnerable body when he unveiled his human form]].

** The series also features some subversions, though. Andross is the eye type, but shooting his eyes only stuns him briefly. To defeat him, the player has to first shoot his hands off, then shoot the head anywhere BUT the eyes. On the right route, he then reveals his true form: [[OneWingedAngel a giant brain with detachable eyeballs that shoot lasers]].
