* 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.

* ''Fright Night 2: New Blood'' (a sequel to the 2011 movie that's really just another remake, except GenderFlipped) uses this again when Charley tries to ward off Gerri with a Bible after [[VillainOverForDinner she suddenly showed up in his girlfriend's dorm room]]. Gerri just grabs hold of it to "prove" that she's not a vampire, then a few seconds later waves Charley goodbye with a cross-shaped burn on her palm.

* The original ''Film/FrightNight1985'' 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.
** 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.

* ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'':
** Alucard is far and away more powerful than any other vampire in the series, and none of the usual vampiric weaknesses do anything to him. Whether its holy blades, having his heart pierced, or his head removed, he just comes right back from it like it was nothing. At one point he calmly takes a plane over a body of water in broad daylight, just to show off how powerful he is (by contrast, Seras, a neophyte vampire who hasn't completely turned yet, must make the journey housed inside her coffin the whole way).
-->'''Integra''': You cut his head off? ''Is that all?'' [...] Cut off his head, pierce his heart? He is nothing like any vampire you've ever known!
** In the animated ''Anime/{{Hellsing}}'', this is how Alucard defeats Incognito: he uses his cross-melting aura to make a long silver stake to impale Incognito on: first through the chest and heart, then vertically all the way through.

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.
