* While Vampires and Werewolves have largely integrated into the alternate Victorian setting of ''Literature/TheParasolProtectorate'', there are still quite a few characters who like to be prepared. Alexia's signature parasol, for example, [[ParasolOfPain has retractable spikes of both silver and wood]] along with a chemical spray tailored to each, one of which doubles as a powerful acid. Other examples include sundowner bullets (wooden musket balls banded with silver) and, amusingly, [[EdibleAmmunition pesto sauce]] (Werewolves in this universe are allergic to basil. Throw in some garlic...).

* The anti-vampire kit in ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}} Steam-Tech'' includes a revolver with a selection of silver bullets, lead bullets inscribed with crosses, hardwood bullets, and actual miniture stakes which can be fired with a blank cartridge. How well they work depends on the kind of vampire and the quality of the specific kit (in the accompanying vignette, an unfortunate vampire hunter discovers - among several other problems with his kit - that the stakes don't actually fit the gun, and tend to fall out).

** An insanely genius item introduced in one of the guides by [[TheHunter Van Richten]] of ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' was a weakness-detecting arrow. Rather than a traditional point, it had needles from over a dozen different substances, like cold iron, gold, silver, wood, and so on. When fired, it does minimal damage to its target, but also does not embed itself. After it is recovered, the wielder can see what substance did the harm based on which other needles are broken or bent, and (depending on the target) which needle has the blood stain.

A common way to kill vamps, using UV rounds, grenades, lamps, or other tricks. The implication is that a number of supernatural creatures are susceptible to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ionizing_radiation ionizing radiation]] (by definition, light capable of tanning skin is ionizing), which is often used to sterilize tools and food, tying into the concept of supernatural creatures as plague carriers. It also means that someone should perhaps attempt to kill vampires with X-ray machines or plain 'ol [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depleted_uranium depleted uranium]].

Silver weapons, including {{Silver Bullet}}s, are commonly used on [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Werewolves]] and (less frequently) [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampires]], stemming back to the idea of silver being a pure metal and/or associated with the moon. (Note that in RealLife, silver and copper do have biocidal properties. The idiomatic "silver spoon", as well as the common brass doorknob, is very effective at killing bacteria on contact. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silver_nitrate Silver nitrate]] is one of the oldest disinfectants, and one of the few such remedies still commonly used.)
