* The [[CreepyCentipedes Crawltipedes]] in ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' can only be damaged in the glowing spot in their tail. * [[SandWorm Drillium]] from ''VideoGame/GridWarrior'' could be damaged in the head or the glowing weak spot that is its tail, but its tail is the only part that lacks DamageReduction armor.

** Goku does this by biting Freeza's tail during their fight on Namek, and he does the same thing to Beerus's tail in Anime/DragonBallSuper.

* In ''DragonBall'', the Saiyans' tails are their weak point. If you hold onto their tails, they are in so much pain it immobilizes them (e.g., Goku, Gohan, and Raditz). Subverted later, when it turns out that Vegeta and Nappa don't have this shortcoming (because of their training). When the Z Fighters made a break for their tails, it ended up backfiring because it didn't immobilize the Saiyans like they expected, leaving them open targets. Played straight later, though, when Yajirobe cuts off Vegeta's tail to return him to human form after he'd transformed into his Great Ape form.

* At the end of ''Disney/TheJungleBook'', Mowgli actually defeats [[BigBad Shere Khan]] by literally burning off his tail using a tree branch that apparently caught fire as a result of it being hit by lightning. Unfortunately, it's revealed in the sequel that this was actually a bad idea, and [[KnightOfCerebus Mowgli learned it the hard way.]] ** Similarly, Kaa is often defeated by having his tail being tied to a tree trunk, resulting in a knot in said tail.

* This is a way to get cool weapons (normally axes and swords) in ''VideoGame/DarkSouls''. Cut off the tail and pick up what drops and you'll get a weapon. Several bosses can have their tails targeted for decent late-game loot, including the Bell Gargoyles, the Gaping Dragon, Seethe the Scaleless, and more. The Hellkite Dragon can also have its tail cut for the Drake Sword, but it's the only non-boss to allow it.
