* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', [[DragonsAreDemonic draconic]] BigBad Alduin is completely invulnerable unless under the effects of the "[[BrownNote Dragonrend]]" [[LanguageOfMagic Thu'um]] shout. Dragonrend is the only Thu'um shout created by mortals, and it forces the immortal [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]] to experience mortality, an utterly disorienting concept to them.

** In one story (as in, within the past 10 years - not exactly yesterday, but well after ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths) story, Batman defeated an Amazon footsoldier by throwing a magnetic baterang at her, which stuck her bracelets together when she blocked it and removed her powers. Suggesting both that the weakness is common to all Amazons, and that it survived into the modern age ... or possibly that whoever wrote that story was [[DependingOnTheWriter taking a few liberties]].

* In ''[[Fanfic/YugiohEQG Yugioh EQG: Shadow Gates]]'', Shadow's deck, Shadow-Mechas, has monsters from the extra deck that all have the ability to reduce the attack points of the monster they are attacking to zero if it is the same type of monster as them (Fusion against Fusion, Synchro against Synchro or Xyz against Xyz).

* In ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''/''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' crossover ''Fanfic/TheVampireOfSteel'', vampires are able to hurt Kryptonians since they are magical creatures. Kara confirms this first-hand when a vampire bites her hand.
-->'''Willow:''' Well, Supergirl ought to be safe from everything. Except maybe Kryptonite.\\
'''Supergirl:''' No, Willow. Kryptonians are vulnerable to magic. If you performed the right spell, even you could hurt me.\\
'''Willow:''' Then you mean, like... well... vampires...\\
'''Supergirl:''' Yes, dear. Vampires can hurt me. The last time I met Buffy, they did, several times. But I go where the job takes me.

Thanks to Franchise/{{Superman}} being a LongRunner, and PopCulturalOsmosis, a common bit of MemeticMutation is to refer to something you are particularly vulnerable to ([[BaconAddiction such as Bacon]]) as "My Kryptonite."

* The ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' cartoon downplayed or ignored the Kryptonite Factor of every character ''except'' Superman. Franchise/GreenLantern's vulnerability to yellow was never actually mentioned (though occasionally, if you watch closely, you'll see yellow stuff getting through his force barricades). [[ComicBook/MartianManhunter J'onn J'onnz]] had no particular vulnerability or [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes phobia]] regarding fire (though he had a bad case of TheWorfEffect in the first season, and he would occasionally struggle in situations where there was a lot of fire). {{ComicBook/Aquaman}} never seemed overly discomfited by being out of water for extended periods. Franchise/WonderWoman... well, she'd lost most of her Kryptonite Factors by the time the series started anyway. Hawkgirl eventually ''gained'' a Kryptonite Factor that was more emotional than physical and ended up resolved by series end anyway. TheFlash almost never used his powers to their full extent (not unlike Superman), with the idea that he never really pushed himself to excel...and when he did, he was given a convenient excuse not to again. {{Franchise/Batman}}'s "Kryptonite Factor"--that he was a perfectly mortal human--came up time and again, but, [[MemeticBadass being Batman]], doesn't really count.

** Busoushoku no Haki (Armament Haki) allows the person who use it to surround himself/herself with a thin air but powerful armor (it's mostly invisible until the TimeSkip), allowing the user to negate devil fruit powers by contact. It does not cancel the devil fruit power itself, but it's one of the few only methods to attack and hurt logia-types. Trained Haki users can use their Busoushoku Haki for their projectile weapons or devil fruit powers.

** Often applies with individual Devil Fruit in a sort of insanely complicated, poorly understood ElementalRockPaperScissors, particularly Logia. As an example, the fact that Luffy is a RubberMan allowed him to totally break the normal SortingAlgorithmOfEvil by easily defeating [[PsychoElectro Enel]], whose electric power was like unto a PhysicalGod.

** That was because it simply didn't work because he was cold-blooded, and had to have his body temperature raised beyond normal; which the military did do, but it was a hassle, and Godzilla was able to recover by going into the ocean. (In all fairness, he passed out right on the shore.) Simply put, the ANB was too much work to pull off and needed an elaborate setup.

Particularly given that while they knew ''how'' to make it, the guy with the expertise with genetics to do so is killed shot precisely for his capability with it, making utilizing it even more difficult.

* The ComicBook/NewGods of the DCU, while far from completely invincible (with the exceptions of the stronger ones like Darkseid) are ''all'' vulnerable to the very rare element Radion. In ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis'' [[spoiler: Darkseid kills his son Orion with a time traveling Radion bullet. Batman later fires the same bullet into Darkseid to fatally poison him; an act that eventually leads to Darkseid's FinalDeath.]]

Sourcefield, for example, is vulnerable to Kool-Aid because when she was human her grandparents tried to poison her with it. Megan almost died in a burning house when she was younger, and therefore became vulnerable to fire upon her transformation.]]

** Anyone who is able to use Erebeal Magic (one of the forms of CastingAShadow in-universe) develops a negative reaction to the herb moly. Nacht, who was [[spoiler: [[AbusiveParents dipped into the Erebos as an infant and not expected to survive]], but did]], has this to a crippling degree, but fortunately for her, ''real'' sacred moly is exceedingly rare.

* In ''WebAnimation/DCSuperHeroGirls,'' the green stuff is around, and worse, Red Kryptonite has the same mental effects it does in most adaptations, but with one big difference: ''humans go dark side too.'' [[HatePlague Uh-oh]]. Lena Luthor created ''living'' Kryptonite creatures known as Kryptomites, AdorableEvilMinions who still keep their harmful properties.
