* As pictured above, In ''MarchenAwakensRomance'', the characters have a habit of making fairly poor matchups in general. For instance, having the plant user fight the plant user in the final round of the [[TournamentArc War Games]] (the others had their own grudge matches, and it worked out for revenge anyway). However, possibly the most blatant was [[WinterRoyalLady Princess Snow]] fighting the 2nd and 3rd rounds in the ''desert'' and ''volcano'' fields respectively and she loses the 3rd round partially because of the heat interfering with her powers. Later, being GenreSavvy Snow ''wanted'' to participate in the 4th round [[HomeFieldAdvantage Ice Field]] but Alan wouldn't let her, which given the boost she'd get from the Ice Field would more than compensate for any lingering fatigue from the previous matches was a huge missed opportunity for them.

* Occurs in GirlsNightOut type episodes, where someone with specific powers over one sex (usually female over male) is on the loose, and the team leader specifically sends troops of the sex which can be controlled to capture said person, as opposed to their operatives of the opposite sex.

* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', originally this was in effect with monsters having innate resistances and some being completely immune, this in particular hurt fire mages and destruction warlocks since the entry level raids were in the fire-based Molten Core. Eventually Blizzard wised up to the fact that making entire specializations useless was a terrible idea and chose to enforce CompetitiveBalance by making elemental or elemental-aligned monsters take just as much damage as they do from any other element.

* In the 90's ''WesternAnimation/XMen'' animated series, when Storm confronts Magneto for the first time in the series, she decides to use intense lightning bolts on him. Magneto points out that being the master of magnetism, lightning was the least effective of her many weapons to use against him. Partially justified since Magneto's powers are written such that if he isn't a SuperpowerLottery winner, he's definitely a runner up, to the point where no energy attacks and few physical attacks would really have been effective.
