** Indestructible creatures can't be destroyed...but they can still be exiled (a stronger effect that pushes the card onto 'exile zone' outside the normal game), bounced back into the player's hand, and weakened with minus effects applied to toughness enough to die on their own. Hexproof creatures can't be targeted by spells or abilities an opponent controls... but their controller may be forced to sacrifice them, or an effect may be untargeted, affecting all creatures on the battlefield indescrimiatedely.
** Similarly, there are effects that deal damage and thouse that cause loss of life. An effect protecting from damage won't help against loss of life.

* [[Myth/RomanMythology Jupiter]] must have been in a bloodythirsty mood when Numa Pompilius, 2nd king of Rome, asked him how to "atone" a place hit by his lightning. Jupiter asked for a head. Numa said, "OK, head of an onion." Jupiter then further asked for a body part. Numa said, "OK, my cut off nails." Jupiter then further asked for something alive. Numa said, "OK, a small fish." Jupiter said something that's probably unprintable, but the deal stuck. (Sidenote: Numa's concubine was a demigoddess, it's not recommended for YOU to play silly bugger with Roman deities.)
* Also from [[Myth/RomanMythology Roman sagas]]; [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tarpeia Tarpeia]] once offered to open the gates of Rome to the Sabines, who were besieging Rome at the time, in exchange for "what they bore on their left arms." She was referring to the gold bracelets the Sabines wore, but they instead threw their shields -- normally carried on the left arm -- on top of her, [[RewardedAsATraitorDeserves crushing her to death]]. Then they threw her body off a cliff.

* LetsPlay/PewDiePie caused an uproar when, as his channel was nearing the 50 million subscriber milestone, he released a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-_4Uoo_7Y4 video]] announcing to his viewers that, "fed up with Youtube's new policies", he would delete his Youtube channel once pewdiepie hit 50 million, gaining him widespread media attention. True to his word, once he passed the 50 million mark, he did [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y39LE5ZoKjw delete his channel]]... his ''secondary'' channel "[=Jacksepticeye2=]", which was a fairly new, seldom used joke channel which saw comparatively little attention. This stunt especially earned the ire of all the [[{{Troll}} trolls]] and [[{{Hatedom}} detractors]] who had subscribed to him at this point just to force him to quit.
