* In ''TabletopGame/HunterTheVigil'', Task Force Valkyrie uses UV lights to stun vampires. It's noted that only true, natural sunlight will actually harm a vampire, but an artificial light that replicates sunlight exactly can still trigger their inherent terror at being confronted by the sun.

** Also in this category is the energy weapon the SGC develops in ''SG-1'' season 7 to kill [[BossInMookClothing Kull Warriors]]. Since Kull armor is, for all intents and purposes, invincible (one of them stepped on a claymore and [[TheJuggernaut didn't even break stride]]), they develop a weapon that shorts out the Kull Warriors' life support. Since the Warriors' bodies are barely alive and are completely dependent on their suits, this kills them in seconds.

* ''Anime/CowboyBebop'': once featured a CreepyChild that was really a boy that stopped aging and gained [[TheAgeless ageless]] immortality from a weird cosmic event. A stone made during the incident was the only thing that could kill him and Jet and Spike carved it into a bullet to use it.

This one [[TruthInTelevision actually happened]] in the Middle Ages, with relics (bones and personal items from saints) being used in the ornamentation of swords and other weapons. They were intended to be "blessed" with special powers (notably [[CaptainObvious less successful than in fiction]]).

Weapons made from [[ReligionIsMagic religious relics]] or containing pieces of such are often used against supernatural foes, often in combination with special materials.

* ''Literature/{{Redwall}}'': Martin's ancestral sword is reforged by the badger lord of Salamandastron using meteoric steel in ''Mossflower''. The same sword is used by nearly every protagonist and has always slain the BigBad of each particular novel (though not always directly, sometimes it is just used to, say, cut a rope holding a giant bell directly above the Big Bad).

** In the same series, elves contemplating battle with gun-wielding humans had to be reminded of how dangerous steel-jacketed bullets would be to elves with a ColdIron allergy. And that's [[AchievementsInIgnorance without the humans even being aware what they're up against]].




to:

** For balance, cold iron weapons are not only more expensive, but harder to enchant, which makes perfect sense for a material with AntiMagic properties.




to:

** And there's a reason the more powerful ones are hard to find: [[spoiler: [[CastFromHitPoints they're powered by the wielder's life force]] since there isn't a ready supply of Mana that strong]]



*** It's also possible for a monster to have damage reduction that can only be overcome by a weapon that is both magical AND has some other property. Unenchanted silver weapons will take down lycanthropes, but a vampire will just laugh it off unless it's both magic AND silver.




to:

** Magic potions can sometimes be used as throwing weapons, taking effect when the vial shatters and spills on the target. This is primarily useful with [[ReviveKillsZombie healing potions against the undead]], because [[CrazyPrepared who carries around potions of Inflict Serious Wounds]]?
