* In ''OnePiece'', ''[[WeaksauceWeakness water]]'' is the weak point of all Devil Fruit users. And considering that nearly the entire ''maritime series'' takes place either at sea or on some tiny island... And then, the technology exists to condense the power of the sea into a stone-like material, which can be used in construction, weapons, handcuffs, etc. That seastone is supposedly rare, but its use has been prevalent enough to nearly warrant this trope on its own.

* ''VideoGame/JediKnightIIJediOutcast'': After spending a few levels powerless, Kyle Katarn regains his jedi Force powers and lightsaber, which should make him an unstoppable killing machine (the lightsaber alone automatically deflects enemy blaster shots). So of course, instead of regular stormtroopers, the very first level as a jedi is full of snipers and grenade throwers who can't be countered, negating everything the player just acquired.

* ''Manga/SaintSeiya'': Dragon Shiryuu's Rozan Shooryuuha leaves his heart exposed for a second, and an opponent can strike him there on that moment to finish him off. Guess what happens the first time he uses it on a series fight. Subverted in that it's only used against him once more, by Capricorn Shura. Double subverted in that the attack is TheWorfBarrage and rarely does much anyway, aside from [[RunningGag breaking his own shield]].

** Writers in later years brought the situation back to pre-Crisis levels of inanity, with a story in ''Comicbook/SupermanBatman'' involving a Kryptonite asteroid hurtling towards the Earth which showered Kryptonite all over the planet when it was destroyed. (The sequel to that story arc explained that Supergirl's space craft was embedded inside the asteroid and was homing in on a signal from Kal-El's old space craft.) The size of the asteroid was never precisely determined but it was ''conservatively'' estimated to be the size of Brazil. A later story in the series, ''K'', has the duo cleaning up all the Kryptonite on Earth. By the end they've accumulated several thousand tons, and it is revealed Batman still has another half a ton or so hoarded up in his cave, 'just in case'.

->''"Superman could move planets, and most people that fought him were lucky if they had a working bike. To balance this out, as soon as they graduate from crime school, every single criminal in the universe is given an unlimited supply of kryptonite along with their retarded hat and matching retarded jumpsuit. Kryptonite is radioactive pieces of a planet that exploded decades ago on the other end of the universe, [[SarcasmMode which might explain why it's so easy to find.]]''"

* In ''VideoGame/Drakengard3'' the main bosses are Intoners, [[RealityWarper Reality Warpers]] of practically PhysicalGod level. While any sufficient force can beat an Intoner into submission, to actually kill one it needs to be done by a dragon (usually with the help of their large, pointy teeth), of which you meet a total of ''two'' over the course of the entire game. Alternatively, a weapon made from the body of a dragon, usually tooth or bone, will also work. With no particular explanation, just about every named character in the game apparently has one of the latter.

* In the Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality novel "For the Love of Evil," the sorcerer Parry finds he cannot use his magic, because there is a sorcerer working for the group hunting him. Said sorcerer can detect his use of magic, and quickly find its location, from a long distance away. So, if he wants to stay hidden, he must not use magic.

*** Also justified in that, given its usefulness (see GreenRocks), anyone who's aware of it beyond "those meteors from Smallville" ''will'' keep a stockpile of it around, to use for anything from creating super-steroids to illegal streetracing fuel to attempts to replicate alien technology. It's also common enough to have been used as ordinary rocks, or cheap alternatives to actual gemstones in jewelry.

** Plus, there's the fact that water itself is a kryptonite for [[GenderBender Ranma]] and other [[BalefulPolymorph Jusenkyo-cursed]] characters, who turn from powerful martial artist into small and (relatively) helpless animals. Ranma isn't as affected: his female form is shorter than his male form, so early on it tripped him up due to having to adjust for shorter reach, but this "weakness" is quickly overcome as he becomes more used to it.

And inverted in the cases of Genma and Pantyhose Taro, both of whom are ''stronger'' in their cursed forms than normal.

So of course there will be water everywhere throughout their encounters.
*** It's a crippling weakness when Rumiko Takahashi can milk some laughs or a plot point out of it. Ranma's shorter arms and legs in his female form was an issue for '''ONE''' fight, against Mousse (and only for about a couple minutes).
*** Ranma stated that his female form has the advantages of being more dexterous (lighter, faster and smaller) so it's not a weaker version of his male form, it's simply different.

** During his first fight Might Guy fared far better than anyone else against Itachi due his extensive experience in fighting against "Sharingan" Kakashi which taught him to only watch his opponents body movements and react to that.
