* In UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, machineguns were a staple of defensive operations. Then along came the tank, a (somewhat) ImmuneToBullets metal monster. Assuming that mechanical failure or rough terrain wasn't in play, the only thing that could really stop a tank was artillery fire, which wasn't always accurate. Needless to say, this real life GameBreaker, along with US intervention, ended the stalemate on the Western Front and helped win the war.

* The Zuul from ''SwordOfTheStars'' are immune to plagues without needing vaccine research, though they can't use plagues against others either. Spectres can only be hurt by energy weapons. High-end shield techs can outright nullify certain weapon types.

* Minor MarvelComics villain the Metal Master has the psychic power to control any metal, but he suffers a VillainousBSOD if he comes to believe his powers are failing him. TheIncredibleHulk (during one of his early "smart" incarnations) tricked him with a huge wooden gun painted to look like metal; while the villain panicked, the Hulk finally got close enough to grab him. Metal Master suffered an even bigger emotional breakdown when he realized ComicBook/RomSpaceknight's armor was made of an alien metal he ''legitimately'' couldn't control.

* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'''s later Ganados, with more developed Plagas often don't die immediately when headshot, and need a couple extra shots to kill the parasite. The Type 3 Plagas can separate completely from the host. All are instantly killed with Flash Grenades, though. [[HeavilyArmoredMook Masked Zealots]] are impervious to [[BoomHeadshot headshots]].

* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', enemies using [[InvisibilityCloak cloaking devices]], such as the [[McNinja Chinese ninjas]] in ''Operation Anchorage'', cannot be hit with VATS. Radscorpions are resistant to being crippled with the Dart Gun, since it uses their venom for the effect.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/TigerMask'':
** Black V, Wrestling/BoboBrazil's fictional apprentice, was trained to have circus contorsionism-level of flexibility to be immune to submission holds, and he shows it on-page when he takes the Fujiyama Tiger Breaker (a devastating submission move) and [[NoSell just shrugs it off]]. He's then [[OhCrap horrified]] when Tiger Mask [[SubvertedTrope shows him the Fujiyama Tiger Breaker can still work on him if used in a certain way]].
** Kintaro Oki, Bobo Brazil and Black V are almost immune to attacks on their heads thanks to [[UseYourHead their heavy use of headbutts increasing the already great hardness of their heads]]. They're not ''completely'' immune, as hitting those heads with enough strength or something harder ''will'' have effect, but pulling it off is extremely hard.

** ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' has flying Spiky Parabuzzies, who are immune to both your standard attacks; they can't be jumped on because they're spiky, and can't be hammered because they fly. The solution is to either equip the Spike Shield badge (which enables you to jump on them without getting hurt) or use a non-jump attack that hits the air (like Hammer Throw).

If you don't have ''either'', then at the point in the game where you first encounter them you'll have the crystal star super attack that deals fixed damage based on performance, and can at least knock their wings off.

Runs on the same principle as KryptoniteIsEverywhere, as an attempt to avert BoringInvincibleHero. May be part of an ElementalRockPaperScissors system. BackStab, CriticalHit and OneHitKill are popular abilities to be immunised against. PunchPunchPunchUhOh is a common consequence. Subtrope of NoSell, supertrope to InvincibleMinorMinion which is this UpToEleven. BreakMeter and InjuredVulnerability is where you can break the Kung Fu Proofing by harming them enough.
