* Subverted in ''Film/TheFearlessVampireKillers'' when a DistressedDamsel holds up a crucifix to ward off a vampire, only to be told, in a heavy Yiddish accent, "Oy vey, have ''you'' got the wrong vampire!" Apparently holy symbols only hurt if they were ever holy to the ''vampire''.

* In ''Manga//ChronoCrusade'', [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demons]] are weak to holy water. The [[DepletedPhlebotinumShells bullets]] in [[ChurchMilitant Rosette's]] guns "use holy water instead of an explosive charge," and in the anime Chrono burns his hand once when he attempts to use it against a demonic enemy.

** Most evil undead and some evil other planar creatures are harmed by holy water. Further, evil undead aren't so much destroyed by holy areas as they are weakened by it, certain divine spell caster classes may even consecrate or hallow areas at a cost, putting them at a distinct advantage against undead. Certain undead ''are'', however, harmed more deeply by spells that simulate sunlight, and in real sunlight, such undead, specifically vampires, are destroyed quite quickly.
