* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles''
** Subverted in the third book, ''Grave Peril''. While attending a vampire ball, a Red Court vampire (less vulnerable to faith than the undead Black Court) laughs at [[ThePaladin Michael's]] cross and grabs it mockingly, saying that it was immune to such things. The vampire then immediately bursts into white flame.
** Of course it can be played straight depending on the person. In the Dresdenverse holy symbols only work if the person who is using it to protect himself actually has faith in what the symbol stands for. So a cross held by someone who has no faith is only holding a useless trinket. In Michael's case, he is literally a holy warrior chosen by God.
** When Harry needs to use something, he uses the pentacle given to him by his mother. To him, it represents his faith in magic guided by human will.
** All faeries are burned horribly by the touch of [[ColdIron iron]]. All faeries except Mother Winter. ''She'' has iron ''teeth.''

* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', the First Hokage's necklage is able to contain the Ninetails/Kyuubi inside him when he manifests up to four tails. [[OhCrap Beyond that though...]]

* In ''VideoGame/KingsQuestIIRomancingTheThrone'', the silver cross given to you by the monk will protect you from Dracula. But in the AGDInteractive FanRemake, if you try the cross on his equivalent (the AffablyEvil Count Caldaur), he'll ''kiss it'' and sarcastically say "God bless Daventry". (This may have a little something to do with the fact that [[spoiler:the monk is evil in this version]]...)

* ''Film/FrightNight'':
** The original has scary-movie actor turned vampire hunter Peter Vincent tries to use a cross against the vampire. The vampire takes it away from him and tosses it, noting that since Vincent [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve doesn't believe it will work, it won't]]. Charley tries it, using a much smaller cross. His greater faith actually causes Jerry to cringe away.
** The [[Film/FrightNight2011 remake]] has this occur has a crowning moment of snark when Charley tries it on Jerry:

** Subverted with the vampiric Lucy as she most likely isn't powerful enough to go against crosses (being newly turned an all).

* Dracula also has one in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaTheDraculaXChronicles'' when he is first revived. He flies past a church, causing the cross on its steeple to crumple as if Magneto had taken a disliking to it.

* Ghosts in ''VideoGame/SilentHill4'' cause Henry to slowly lose health just from proximity. But he can protect his health by wearing a holy medal or lighting a candle, both of which weaken ghosts as a bonus... the problem is the medals slowly break because of the ghost's evil and the candles burn out; making them limited use and rare items for dealing with the unkillable ghosts.
