*** Groin, ears, eyes, nose, throat, and the knees are all targets where a weaker opponent can do ''significant'' damage to a stronger person. For women's self defense classes, scratching a man's eyes out with your fingernails or anything else you can get your hands on is one of the first moves taught. Experienced fighters know that a hard, fast kick to the inside of someone's knee (the knee is designed to bend in only ''one'' direction, and bending it in any other direction is crippling) will take someone out of a fight no matter how much muscle or experience they have. This is the reason why, in organized fighting, all of these are areas where attacking them will result in instant disqualification.

* In the early games in the ''Hiryu no Ken'' series (''Flying Dragon'', ''Flying Warriors'', etc.), this makes up the bulk of the one-on-one fight scenes. Flashing red marks will appear on your fighter and your opponent. You have to inflict damage by attacking the red marks, while defending when the marks appear on your fighter's body. Occasionally, blue marks will appear when their is an opportunity for a CriticalHit, and star marks indicate an opportunity for a OneHitKO. When ''no'' hit markers appear, it's usually a sign that your opponent is about to use a [[LimitBreak super-strong attack]].

* The German battleship ''Bismarck'' was incredibly highly armed and armored, and the greatest warship ever built at the time. A single lucky torpedo from an obsolete British biplane bomber hit and disabled the rudder, making her essentially a sitting duck. Without any support by other ships, she was attacked the next morning and had to be scuttled without causing any significant damage to the attackers.

* 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.
