Of course, such destruction is ''never'' subtle and is catered to the holy item. Holy statues will [[TearsFromAStone weep tears]] of [[TearsOfBlood blood]], prayer slips will have their holy runes drip off, and the PlaceOfProtection will [[WalkingWasteland sour and die]]. And crosses, as seen in the accompanying image, catch flame and burn to ash.

* In ''Film/HellraiserIIIHellOnEarth'', Pinhead liquified the cross held at him by a priest, seriously burning him, while giving an ironic quote: "Thou shall not bow down before any graven image." But he doesn't stop there: Pinhead's very presence is such blasphemy that the church itself starts tearing itself apart: the walls crack, the stained glass windows pop one after the other as he walks down the aisle, the candles erupt in huge columns of flame and the whole room is lit up a hellish red. Before long, the sanctuary looks less like a house of The Lord and more like a Satanic cathedral. Again: [[HolyShitQuotent Pinhead accomplishes this by simply swanning down the aisle over to the pulpit]].

For the OccultDetective, TheHunter, and TheMenInBlack in charge of policing the supernatural threats that step out of line, a thorough knowledge of how OurMonstersAreDifferent is vital. They need to know all the {{Weaksauce Weakness}}es, the various {{Kryptonite Factor}}s, and develop DepletedPhlebotinumShells in order to properly [[FlawExploitation exploit the weaknessess]] of their prey. This is what helps level the playing field and save the lives of countless heroes as the forces of darkness [[WeakenedByTheLight run from the light]] [[HissBeforeFleeing hissing]] and burning.

* 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.
