*''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': The magic system features ten elements and all of them have an opposite that they are both strong and weak against. For instance, water puts out fire but heat from the fire can be used to evaporate the water. During ''Literature/ManaMutationMenace'', Eric uses air magic to prevent someone from teleporting with lightning magic.

* [[PlayingWithFire Fire]] -- usually [[KillItWithFire strong]] against wood, ice, {{the undead}}, or explosions. Weak to water, and sometimes, wind. Sometimes weak to stone or earth (but just as often strong against the latter especially if plant life is included in earth).
* [[AnIcePerson Ice]] -- May be either strong or [[WeakToFire weak against fire]], explosions, and electricity, depending on whether it's classified with or separately from Water. If it's separate, then Water will be strong against Fire while Ice is weak to it; [[IceMagicIsWater if they're combined]], Fire and Ice will be equally strong against each other (similar to Light/Dark, mentioned below).

* [[DishingOutDirt Earth]] -- usually strong against electricity, and air, and weak to explosions. Although again this varies by the setting; when combined with plants it is weak to fire otherwise Earth is strong to fire and weak to water and/or ice, and sometimes it ''is'' weak against Wind/Air (also similar to Light/Dark).

* Various MarvelComics heroes have used this trope at several points to defeat certain enemies, most often villains who either transform themselves into some giant elemental-type creature or otherwise use a certain type of energy in their powers.

* ''VideoGame/{{Obsidian}}'' features Air, Fire, Metal and Oil as part of an alternate universe where machines thrive instead of humans, described in one of the dream worlds. 4 different mini-worlds each utilize these elements within an enormous mechanical spider, and with the puzzles in each one solved, the spider gains these elements one by one until it fully comes to life when complete...which may not be a good thing for a human.
