** In the second major arc, Belkar hanged after the order are captured by bandits, which he survives since he's a 30-pound halfling, and his weight doesn't even pull the rope taut enough to strangle him (although hanging upside down for a while does eventually make him a little delirious).

While his deafness isn't generally very useful, it does make him the only one of the heroes immune to the mental attacks caused by [[KillerRabbit Ratatosk's]] shouts. [[spoiler: His disability also saves everyone's lives during the confrontation with Fenris Wolf in ''The Sword of Fenrir Summer'', as he's equally unaffected by the monster's CompellingVoice and Ratatosk the giant squirrel.keeps everyone else from falling for Fenris' attempts to lure them into his striking range]].

* ''ComicBook/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Season 10'' exploits this in one issue. When Spike and Xander have been seduced by [[EnthrallingSiren sirens]], Xander, in a moment of clarity, takes two plastic drink swords and shoves them in Spike's ears, poking out his ear drums. The deaf Spike is thus immune to the sirens, and manages to kill them before [[GoodThingYouCanHeal his ear drums grow back]].

** Also, in the episode where Peter goes temporarily blind he walks into the Drunken Clam bar during a fire and rescues the trapped bartender. When asked, his reply is priceless.

** The fishman Sebastian from the [[Recap/OnePiece3D2Y 3D2Y special]] is immune to [[WorldsMostBeautifulWoman Hancock]]'s charm due to being blind. Unfortunatly for him, that just means that Hancock is forced to ''actually'' attack.

* In ''Literature/ThePiedPiperOfHamelin'', at most three children can get left behind when the Piper plays his alluring music, and are thus able to relate to the adults what happened to the others. One is deaf and can't hear the music, one is blind and can't follow the Piper, and one is lame and can't keep up. Different versions use different variations.

** One episode called "From Within" starred a disabled guy who was immune to the parasitic mind control worms that took over everybody else in town. When one tries to get him, it shrivels up and dies of starvation. It appears to come out a different ear than it went in. He had a form of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome/Fetal Alcohol Affect Disorder that resulted in him having reduced neurotransmitters that affect emotions-the same neurotransmitters that the parasites happened to feed on. FAS can result in a smaller brain as well.

* People with social disorders like autism are not only to various degrees immune to PolitenessJudo due to their own lack of social tact and awareness, but are also more likely to see through the tricks of illusionists since the subtle body language tricks and diversions that illusionists employ are far less effective against people who pay little to no attention to those sorts of things in the first place.

For a similar reason, many magicians hate performing for very young children, since they've not yet learned these subtler social cues (and may also lack the politeness that would prevent them from shouting out what the magician is doing).
