* CaptainPlanet has a very odd weakness in that it's pollution, the very thing he's trying to fight. It'd be like Superman deciding to specialize solely on kryptonite cleanup duty.

** This extend to fan supplements as well: [[TabletopGame/LeviathanTheTempest Leviathans]]' is electricity, [[TabletopGame/DragonTheEmbers Dragons]]' is jadeite. [[TabletopGame/PrincessTheHopeful Princesses]] don't have any (their vulnerability [[DespairEventHorizon has more to do with their emotions]]), but their enemies, the Darkened, typically have a vulnerability to jade.

** [[TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem Vampires]]' is [[KillItWithFire fire]].
** [[TabletopGame/WerewolfTheForsaken Werewolves]]' is, as usual, [[SilverBullet silver]]. In-universe, this is explained by Luna, the Spirit of the Moon, cursing them with this weakness as a punition for killing their progenitor Father Wolf. Because of this, the Forsaken (those who aknowledged their crime and are trying to atone for it) have it slightly less rough and are just hurt by silver weapons, while the Pure (those who refused responsibility for the crime) can't even ''touch'' it.

Added DiffLines:

* Werewolves' best-known KryptoniteFactor nowadays is [[SilverBullet silver]], though it's worth to mention that this actually is NewerThanTheyThink; the idea apparently originated from the Beast of Gevaudan, which according to the myth was killed by a silver bullet, but back then, the reason it succeeded in killing it was believed to be because the creature was of satanic origin and the bullet had been blessed. Before silver became iconic, werewolves' best-known Kryptonite Factor was Wolfsbane (also known as Aconitum), a plant people believed to have various effects on them, including killing them.


Added DiffLines:

* Most supernatural creatures in ''TabletopGame/NewWorldOfDarkness'' have one, which usually translates as said factor inflicting them aggravated damages:
** [[TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem Vampires]]' is [[KillItWithFire fire]].

* The ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' game setting's ''Van Richten's Guides'' not only expanded on a lot of creepy D&D monsters' powers, but also gave plenty of them unique Kryptonite Factors of their own. We're not talking about the usual garlic-vs-vampires stuff; in Ravenloft, even ''golems'' have their own personalized Kryptonite, which players have to figure out if they're going to use it against the baddies.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', earthbenders can't bend metal (until Toph discovers how). In ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', metalbending techniques have become widespread, so the new kryptonite is platinum. Any military hardware like tanks or mech-suits will have pure platinum armor.

** In the ''Elseworlds'' storyline ''SupermanAndBatmanGenerations'', it was revealed that the yellow vulnerability was just a hoax made up by the Guardians to keep the Green Lanterns from getting too cocky. Alan Scott's wood weakness, however, was psychosomatic and imposed by himself; during his early adventures, while fighting some ruffians, one snuck up behind him and hit him with a wooden club. While the truth was that he just didn't pay attention and thus allowed the foe to get in a cheap shot, he instead convinced himself that he had a weakness to the wood and thus couldn't defend himself. Guess he had a bit of an ego going...
