* In ''Film/{{Dracula 1979}}'', Jonathan Harker tries to ward off the Count with a wooden cross, but he just smiles and grabs it, making it burst in flames.

* Played with the sun itself by Tolkien. Throughout ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'' we've been told that the forces of Sauron like Orcs, Trolls and Nazgûl are afraid of the sun, and sunlight weakens or outright destroys them. And in the third book, we see Sauron's army on the march to Minas Tirith. Cue the sun fading and the day becoming dark as night.
** The pall of darkness is later blown away by a wind out of the west (wind being commanded by Manwë, holiest of the Valar), which also just happens to give Aragorn's stolen boats the extra boost of speed required to provide effective reinforcements to Gondor.

Added DiffLines:

** Peter Vincent was able to burn a newly-turned vampire with a small cross earlier in the film, implying that the required amount of faith goes up according to the age/strength of the vampire in question.

* 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 Kolyma". (This may have a little something to do with the fact that [[spoiler:the monk is evil in this version]]...)

* ''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.''
