KillItWithIce. A similar trope is the ImmortalBreaker, a weapon that supersedes immortality. This trope usually utilises a specific item or property to kill a specific being, while Immortal Breakers simply call trumps over being immortal and is usually equally effective over all immortals.

* ''VideoGame/GodOfWarPS4'', being based off of Myth/NorseMythology, makes use of this. [[spoiler:At one point in the game, the dwarf Sindri gives Kratos' son Atreus a bunch of mistletoe arrows. When Freya sees them she demands the arrows and immediately destroys them to protect Baldur. However, earlier Kratos used one of the arrowheads to affect temporary repairs to Atreus' quiver; later on Baldur punches the boy, which causes him to get the arrowhead driven through his palm, taking away his invulnerability.]]

* Garrett's [[TrickArrow Water Arrows]] in ''VideoGame/{{Thief}}'' can be temporarily upgraded into holy water arrows either through one-time use holy water vials or visiting a holy water fountain. Strangely enough, these are actually used to permanently kill zombies instead of vampires.

* ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'': [[AllThereInTheManual The manual]] for the [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaI first game]] stated that Simon Belmont soaked his signature whip in garlic juice and holy water for seventeen weeks before assaulting Dracula's castle. This is kind of undone since one of the first powerups the game will give you after every respawn is a ball and chain weapon that replaces the whip, and retconned out almost entirely with the increasingly-complex history of the whip in later games.

Hard to work with, [[VampiresHateGarlic but great against vampires]]. There's even a certain basis in reality for this -- garlic contains [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allicin Allicin]], a potent anti-biotic and anti-fungal agent. Remember that the original vampire myths described them as [[LooksLikeOrlok plague carriers]] instead of [[ClassicalMovieVampire angsty nobility]] or [[OurVampiresAreDifferent teenage estrogen bait]].

* ''Franchise/{{Hellraiser}}'': In the "Razing Hell" comic mini-series, written by the [[RetroactiveRecognition Wachowski Brothers]], the protagonists manage to make bullets out of some of their own bones (starting with a fallen comrade who tells them how to do it with his dying breath, and later, in one desperate situation, a character uses his own pinky finger to make more ammo), since one of the only things that can hurt the LegionsOfHell is Leviathan's own power (which has tainted them too, since they were its prisoners). They use this knowledge to begin a grim but very effective LaResistance campaign against the cenobites and the puzzle-box guardians.

** ''Literature/FateZero'': Emiya Kiritsugu's custom "Origin Bullets" were filled with his own powdered bones, which contains Kiritsugu's dual Origins (base 'orientations' of an individual) of 'Binding' and 'Severing'. A magus uses magecraft to defend against the bullet? The Origins are forced directly onto his [[FunctionalMagic Magic Circuits]], overloading them and ripping them apart, then binding then back imperfectly, thus making then permanently unusable.
