* ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'': Holy symbols also harm/repel vampires and suchlike. We usually see Riff (he being Jewish) using a Star of David on vampires, but he also put a screen on one of his robots that shuffles through the major holy symbol of every religion in case K'Z'K had a vulnerability for one of them. (When we were shown this one in action, it stopped on Ricky Martin.)

** Confirmed in ''Literature/TheDarkTower'', in which Callahan gets MyGreatestSecondChance. This time, he calmly informs the vampire that he would never cast a beloved holy symbol aside, but he will be glad to put it away and tucks it back beneath his shirt. The vampire, thinking Callahan TooDumbToLive, attacks, but is repulsed by ThePowerOfFaith.

* Holy water will burn demons in ''Series/{{Supernatural}}''. Bobby apparently sanctifies [[ProperlyParanoid all the drinks]] he offers people in order to weed out those who are possessed.
** Azazel however is so powerful that he is completely immune to holy war.

** Nick's own resistance is shown to be due to his attempts at redemption. An early episode shows him fondly regarding a cross that [[BeenThereShapedHistory belonged to Jeanne D'arc]]. In the flashback, the cross set his hand ablaze, meaning he could not hold it up for her while she was being burned at the stake. Now, he can hold it with only minor injury, as he demonstrates to his {{Muggle}} doctor friend. Naturally, the villain of the week is a serial killer who is burning "witches".

* In ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'', heroes suffering from the Crimson Curse suffer minor damage from the "Holy Water" item, which provides uninfected heroes with a buff.

Added DiffLines:

* While going through ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'''s Purgatory, the mere presence of an angel causes the author to cringe and cover himself from the intensity of their light. His damned Pagan guide makes it clear that this is only due to the author's current imperfection and true to that, his joy upon meeting the angels leads him to bathe in the light of their joyful fires. So, while Holy Burns Evil, it also Glorifies Good.

Added DiffLines:

* In the Lighting the Darkness Arc of ''Fanfic/EquestriaAcrossTheMultiverse'', Lord Yomi and his minions are demons and extremely vulnerable to holy objects. Fortunately for them, the world they attacked had forgotten their Goddess and thus were left defenseless against them. Unfortunately for them, the Mane Six eventually rescue a mare named Antiquity who ''does'' know and is devotedly religious to said goddess. Interestingly, ''any'' god's symbol and name will work, not just Queen Equinox's. Including 'newborn' ones like Twilight.

* In ''Film/HocusPocus'', the witch Winnie sneezes, prompting a passing-by girl dressed as an Angel (it's Halloween) to say "Bless you!" All three sisters react with terror.

They also cannot step foot on hallowed ground, like cemetery. [[spoiler:This is what ultimately does Winnie in in the end, turning her to stone.]]

* Played straight with holy water and holy ground in ''Fright Night 2: New Blood'', but double subverted in one instance. The teen protagonist tries to prove that the teacher is a vampiress by warding her off with a bible, but she grabs it with no problem. Then right before she leaves she flashes the minor cross-shaped burn on her palm.
