** The light in the vial that Galadriel gives to Frodo, which Sam uses against Shelob? That light is the concentrated essence of one star - but that's not really a star at all, it's a Silmaril in the sky. And the Silmarils are made from the light of the Two Trees, and therefore the light of Ilúvatar itself. By the Transitive Property of Holiness, ''Sam fights Shelob with the light of God.''

Added DiffLines:

* Slightly Zigzagged in ''TheDarkEye'', where demons take additional harm from priests, holy objects and grounds, but the effect is not restricted to good deities.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfThomasCovenant'', Lord Foul the Despiser is the BigBad, the GodOfEvil ''and'' TheAntiGod, wielder and in some senses embodiment of ThePowerOfHate and centuries-spanning chessmaster extraordinaire, but there is one power that he [[EvilCannotComprehendGood cannot understand]] and cannot ''withstand''. It's not Magic or Law and certainly isn't Despair - [[spoiler: it's ''joy''. When Covenant and Foamfollower confront him at the end of the first arc, it's Covenant's wild magic that separates Foul from his ArtifactOfDoom, but it's Foamfollower's good-hearted laughter in the face of annihilation that finishes him]].

* A minor version from ''[[CareBears Adventures in Care-a-Lot]]'': after seeing his plan to break up a band made of a few of the female Care Bears thwarted by ThePowerOfFriendship, Grizzle comments, "This sickening display of friendship HURTS!" Trueheart asks if it isn't just the high heels he's wearing as part of his [[DisguisedInDrag drag disguise]].

* Played relatively straight in ''TheStand''. Trashcan Man is positively frightened by his dreams of Mother Abagail (who pities him in hers, even when she can't remember him). Flagg loses all of his composure and power around the Free Zoners, even traitors like Harold and Nadine.

* PlayedForLaughs in ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD''. Praying to God, or being the target of a benevolent prayer, causes demons sharp headaches. Even after becoming demons, Asia and Xenovia remain devout, and [[AmusingInjuries frequently forget this]]. Until Issei asks ArchangelMichael to let them pray without the pain.

* The character known as "The Oracle" from ''SpiderRiders'' has the ability to prevent her power form being abused by those who use it. Mostly she dosen't actually hurt anyone, she just blinds them with a flash of light.

* A secularized version is played for laughs in ''TheSlayers'' when Lina turns LoveFreak Amelia loose on Xellos. Since Mazoku in the slayerverse feed on negative emotions the [[GenkiGirl full unbridled effect of Amelia's sheer perkiness]] (backed up by a rather insincere-sounding Gourry and Zelgadis) is enough to completely debilitate one of the most powerful evil characters in the series.

* Even DC's variation of the devil isn't immune to this trope. Neron of ''ComicBook/UnderworldUnleashed'' sought to obtain the soul of [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]], as it was the most pure of the other heroes' souls. When Captain Marvel surrendered it selflessly, its pureness burned him and he quickly returned it to him, forcing Neron to retreat.
