** [[TabletopGame/BeastThePrimordial Beasts]] have an interesting variant; while they don't have any Kryptonite Factor in their natural state, [[ManOfKryptonite Heroes]] possess an ability known as Anathema, which allows them to create force one on them. It's commonly believed among Beasts that vampires are vulnerable to fire because their Progenitor was a Beast who suffered an Anathema giving that weakness.

** This extends 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/LeviathanTheTempest Leviathans]]' is electricity, [[TabletopGame/DragonTheEmbers electricity;
***[[TabletopGame/DragonTheEmbers
Dragons]]' is jadeite. Jadeite. The retooled ''TabletopGame/DragonRekindled'' makes them vulnerable to dark magic and regular jade as well, albeit not to the same level.

[[TabletopGame/PrincessTheHopeful Princesses]] don't have aren't vulnerable to any (their vulnerability [[DespairEventHorizon has more to do with their emotions]]), ''material'' substance, but their enemies, the Darkened, typically they do have a form of enhanced empathy called Sensitivity, which causes them to [[AllergicToEvil literally feel hurt when they see people commit cruel or vicious actions]]. This can variably cause physical injuries, headaches, depression, anger or denial, and has the side effect of creating "shadows" which disturb their ability to [[HenshinHero transform]].
**** Their main opponents, the All-Consuming Darkness, has a distinct
vulnerability to jade.jade, which burns its minions by mere contact.

** Ironically, Superman is infamous for [[FightOffTheKryptonite ignoring Kryptonite]] through sheer HeroicWillpower. The only thing he is always shown as vulnerable to is magic. This has proven a loophole to give [[{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]] a [[SuperHeroSpeciation a firm place]] in TheDCU as a valuable ally for the Man of Steel.

* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' has the same weaknesses that her cousin Superman. Namely: kryptonite and magic.
** In the ''Comicbook/NewKrypton'' storyline, Supergirl faced off against [[ArchEnemy Reactron]], an enemy powered by golden kryptonite which nullified her powers.
** In the ''Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' arc, Silver Banshee managed to contain Supergirl for a short while when they fought because her sonic attacks are magic, and Kryptonians are vulnerable to magic. Later on, Kara was weakened when she fought [[spoiler:Worldkiller-1]] because Earth's atmosphere was poisoned with kryptonite.

* Parodied by CaptainUnderpants, who ''thinks'' he loses his powers when he's sprayed with starch. It's actually a PlaceboEffect, because he only believes it because that's what George and Harold wrote in their comic book.

* In ''ComicBook/XMen'', ComicBook/{{Cyclops}}' optic blasts can be entirely contained by even a thin sheet of ruby-quartz (and, uh, [[RequiredSecondaryPowers his eyelids]] apparently) This is used to his ''advantage'', as he can't normally control his optic blasts at all, and so wears glasses with lenses made of the material. Occasionally a villain will strap some ruby-quartz armor, or lock a quartz helmet on to Cyclops's head, but usually they prefer to go the route of knocking off the glasses.

** Colossus, one of the most powerful of the X-Men, can turn his body into living steel, and cannot be hurt by many things when he is in his metal form. The anti-metal vibranium, however, ''can'' hurt him, and when faced with a vibranium weapon, he instinctively reverts to his human form.

** [[TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost Changelings]] don't have any particular weakness themselves, but their enemies, the True Fae, fear ColdIron.

** [[TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost Changelings]] don't have any particular weakness themselves, but use ColdIron against their enemies, the True Fae, fear ColdIron.Fae. Powerful Changelings gain ''frailties'' as the storybook logic of faerie magic takes root within them; for example, the Summer King of Miami is harmed by the touch of copper and can't rest in a room without open windows.
