** Also in ''Star Wars'', the Droidekas have shields that make them immune to both lightsabers and their own blaster bolts reflected from lightsabers. Their creators being GenreSavvy, [[SubvertedTrope the clone troopers are equipped with blasters strong enough to punch through their shields]].

* The perfection of the aircraft carrier as a weapon of naval warfare in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII rendered the battleship obsolete, since it could only lob a shell up to thirty kilometers away at most, while the carrier could launch bombers from hundreds of kilometers away and sink any battleship from a safe distance. This was exemplified by the sinking of the Yamato, the most powerful battleship ever built which was sent on a suicide run against the American pacific fleet towards the end of the way; it didn't get very far before being bombed and torpedoed to the bottom of the sea without ever even catching sight of the American carriers.

* In PsiOpsTheMindgateConspiracy, the EliteMooks are equipped with special armor that makes them immune to your psi powers. If you set them on fire with pyrokinesis, though, they become vulnerable for a split-second before they extinguish themselves.

* Various ComicBook/{{X-Men}}, for various reasons, are, or have been {{retcon}}ned to be, immune to telepathy due to government experiments ({{Wolverine}}), messed up heads with way too much going on in them (Wolverine, Rogue), powers ({{Magneto}} in some continuities), equipment (Magneto again, TheJuggernaut). Others are specifically immune to each others' powers, usually in the case of siblings like the Summers brothers or the Frost sisters.

* Common infected in ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2'' can be killed in a variety of ways, but certain campaigns will have special versions of them that make it harder to dispatch them. Hazmat infected are immune to fire damage, construction infected are wearing earmuffs so they can't hear pipe bombs (pipe bombs have an alarm attached in order to lure zombies), and riot infected are heavily armored except in the back and they're also vulnerable to explosives and fire.

* Generic example: Many, many, many RPG-style games have enemies for whom magic is completely ineffective, and only physical attacks will work, or the inverse -- physical attacks are a NoSell, but magic attacks take them out fast.
* This is the schtick of the bos Red Giant from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII''. He will respond with gloats and snarks each time your attacks have little to no effect on him. Tip: Gravity is his AchillesHeel.

* A number of Stands in ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' can't be beaten through conventional means, like Judgement, which is a Stand made of air and thus intangible, and Yellow Temperance, a Stand made of flesh-eating goo that can't be destroyed (and obviously even ''touching'' it is a bad idea.) Both Stands are beaten by [[spoiler: breathing in the Stand to suffocate the [[{{Synchronization}} synchronized Stand User]], and just attacking the Stand User directly, respectively.]]

* {{Plok}} gives us Shprouts, which become shocked and jump into the air when hit for the first time and need to be hit a second time ''immediately'' afterwards in order to defeat them; taking too long "resets" them, forcing you to start over. It becomes worse when they begin to carry shields in later stages, requiring Plok to hit them in the back by deliberately missing them with a [[FloatingLimbs limb]] he throws at them, [[BoomerangComeback making it hit them on its way back]]; sneaking up behind them won't work well, as they turn around after the first hit.
