** The Gold Kryptonite part is now "powerless for 30 seconds", mostly because [[LikeYouWouldREallyDoIt it couldn't credibly be used for much storytelling otherwise]].

*A ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueAction'' web short called True Colors has Firestorm try to transmute Metallo's Kryptonite into lead, but he doesn't know its composition well enough to do it accurately, and it goes through ''several'' of its variants. Traditional Green has its traditional pain/weakness effect, Red sends him into a rage, and Black splits him into good/evil versions. Gold and Pink make their screen debuts but don't have their usual effects; Gold gives him amnesia instead of depowering him, and Pink turns him into a woman instead of making him act CampGay. (He keeps his very male voice, though!)

** Athena and her daughter, Clara, are a parody of Power Girl and Supergirl respectively and have the same [[FlyingBrick basic set of powers.]] Their weakness...? It's [[DefeatByModesty sexual harassment.]] In their setting, virtually everyone is a pervert from the villains, to the bystanders they put themselves at risk to protect.

** In ''Comicbook/TheSupergirlFromKrypton'', Kara Zor-El's pod crash-lands on Earth after spending three decades and a half stuck inside a Kryptonite giant asteroid. Although she survived thanks to her pod's sunlight generators, [[ComicBook/Supergirl2005 she suffered from Kryptonite poisoning for over one year]].
** In ''[[ComicBook/Supergirl1982 Supergirl Vol. 2]]'' issue #21, both Super-cousins fight the Kryptonite Man. His power weakens them and hurts them.
--->'''Supergirl:''' Kryptonite... Cutting through me... like a knife.



* ''Series/LoisAndClark,'' setting the tone for most [[Series/{{Smallville}} adaptations]] [[Series/{{Supergirl}} after]] it, has red kryptonite affect him mentally instead of the comicverse rules of random one-off effects. Just how dark-side it makes a Kryptonian go depends on the tone of the adaptation, but one thing remains the same: under Red K, [[SuperDickery Superman is a Dick]]. However, this series also had Red K used to power devices that ''would'' affect him in different ways. You get dickishness out of merely putting a chunk of it near him, though.

* Interestingly, in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', it was originally planned that Supergirl, being in this iteration not from Krypton, but rather the sister-planet of Argos, would not have a weakness to Kryptonite. This is demonstrated in the "Superman Adventures" comic based on the series. By the time of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'', though, the weakness was firmly in place.

* In ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'', a Draconequus like Discord and his family are all {{Reality Warper}}s. However, they cannot directly affect anything created by taking away something. For example: ice (created by taking away heat), despair (created by taking away hope), and the vacuum of space (created by taking away air and matter). As a result, they can be imprisoned by ice and similar substances for a time (note that although they cannot poof away ice or transmute it, they can eventually generate enough heat to melt it or break free with brute force). They are also vulnerable to the Rainbow of Light and its present day counterpart the Elements of Harmony.

As the Goddess of Harmony, Cadence is a ManOfKryptonite to them and even her blood can effect them negatively.
** The extradimensional invaders [[SealedEvilInACan sealed behind the gates of Tartarus]] are vulnerable to existence. In theory this sounds like a WeaksauceWeakness, but it's much harder to exploit that it sounds, as it means it more in a divine cosmic sense than just existence itself. It takes [[YinYangBomb both Nature's Fury (the Draconequi) and Nature's Law (the Alicorns) combined]] to do the trick. [[spoiler:Fluttershy and Fluttercruel are an Alicorn and Demi-Draconequus SharingABody, so their blood is toxic to them.]]

* ''Manga/MakenKi'': For most of the world, [[BigBad Yamato Takeru]] is a seemingly unstoppable force of evil. Made moreso, since [[YouCantKillWhatsAlreadyDead he's already dead]], has near godlike combat prowess, and has numerous clone bodies to inhabit. The only thing that can hurt him is [[LightEmUp "White Element"]], which is so rare, that there are only four known ability users in the world that can channel it. The protagonist, Takeru Oyama, happens to be one of them.

* In ''ComicBook/PowerGirl'' story ''Fanfic/AForceOfFour'', [[TheDragon Badra]] and her Kryptonian allies banish all magic from Earth before setting their plans in motion. And since there's barely Kryptonite on Earth-Two, the heroes have barely any means to stop them.

* 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 ''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.
