* The Merit: ''True Faith'' in WhiteWolf's original ''TabletopGame/TheWorldOfDarkness'' allowed certain virtuous characters to harm evil entities by touch, deed or (at high levels) presence alone. The behavior required to match the Merit's greatest levels put them (theoretically) beyond the reach of most player characters, but - as with an game - exceptions were probably common.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'', the Unconquered Sun is the cosmic embodiment of virtue. As a result, it is within his power to deem which sorts of beings in Creation and beyond count as "creatures of darkness" (usually demons, the undead, and [[TheFairFolk Raksha]]). His chosen, the Solar Exalted, thus have access to Holy Charms that allow them to do ''extremely'' grievous damage to said creatures of darkness. This is something of a subversion, however. The Sun has authority to declare whomever he so chooses to be Creatures of Darkness without any due process. If a Lawful Good Paladin style character pissed him off sufficiently, she could be declared a Creature of Darkness no matter how many kittens she saved or old people she helped across the street. It is only the Sun's commitment and restraint that prevents him from abusing this power.

SubTrope of SupernaturalRepellent. SuperTrope to HolyBurnsEvil. The inverse of this trope is AllergicToEvil (for people) and CrossMeltingAura (for [[ProtectiveCharm holy artifacts]]). Might be a reason for TooSpicyForYogSothoth. See also ReviveKillsZombie. Contrast with HolyHandGrenade where it is the power of Light instead of Goodness which burns; a crucial difference in a setting where Good is not equivalent to Light and where religion and purity might actually be oppressive or villainous. Also contrast HolyisNotSafe where the intensity of the holiness will damage or consume anyone who fails to meet its rather stringent standards.

** The scandinavian version of Trolls are especially notable for this, as they will turn to stone in sunlight and be driven off by the sound of church bells. However, it should be noted that trolls are ''not'' AlwaysChaoticEvil, and in some versions are just symbols of Scandinavia's pagan past, not good nor evil. In these stories, they're perfectly fine in sunlight but have withdrawn to the mountains to avoid the christian settlers.
** The scandinavian version of the Sirens, known as a "Rå", are mean-spirited tricksters who enjoy tormenting humans and appear as beautiful women with fox tails or tree bark on their back. Their anthisesis is christianity, and can be driven off by prayer, or in one story, by a man saying "in Gods name" while telling who he thought was his wife that he was going to bed for the night.



* According to exorcists, exorcism is so painful for demons that they find Hell preferable.

** In the NewWorldOfDarkness, a mortal with high levels of humanity and the level of virtue that implies gains bonuses in interactions with ghosts and spirits that represent a 50% increased chance of winning any social conflict (which is the primary way to subdue or eliminate such creatures).

* MarvelComics' The Brood are an entire alien race that, until recently, screened out compassion by killing any of their offspring that showed potential for it. Brood can learn compassion, but having it suddenly forced on them (via psychic projection for example) will ''kill'' them.
