Judgement was Cameo's wish granting Stand
* 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.

** Mr. Heart is an enemy [[Kevlard so fat that only Nanto Seiken can injure him]], hence why Shin sicked him on Kenshiro. Kenshiro countered this by ''moving'' the fat away [[CrazyPrepared with a move created to do just that]], [[DidntSeeThatComing leaving Shin speechless]].

* One of the most deadly things about ComicBook/{{Venom}} as an enemy of ComicBook/SpiderMan is that, as a result of all the time it spent bonded with him (as part of its origin in the series), it doesn't activate Spidey's [[MySignificantSenseIsTingling 'Spider Sense']] when it approaches. Spidey usually relies on this ability when dealing with pretty much anyone else, so, whenever Venom is his enemy, he generally has to try other tactics (most often around exploiting its weakness to sonic vibrations and loud sounds).

Those things about Kenshiro aren't subversions: he had to alter his technique some way to counter their immunity. The two other things aren't examples at all.
* ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' subverted it twice. The first time, Kenshiro had to fight Heart, an enemy so fat he couldn't hit his pressure points, at least until Kenshiro ''moved'' the fat away [[CrazyPrepared with a move created to do just that]] ([[WildMassGuessing probably it hadn't been the first time someone attempted that on an Hokuto Shinken master]]). In a later story arc, arc BigBad Souther is apparently immune to Hokuto Shinken, at least until Kenshiro discovers his pressure points are inverted due a rare [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dextrocardia cardiovascular condition]], right after Toki declaring he knew about it caused the until then smug Souther to get an OhCrap face. ** Another (anime only) subversion is Balkom, one of Shin's main henchmen. Upon rebelling he boasted that his technique made his muscles hard as steel and immune to Shin's Nanto moves, and in fact he actually survived Shin's initial attacks, including the one that had actually felled Kenshiro in their first fight, with nothing more than a bloody nose. Then Shin decided it was the moment to actually fight seriously, and used a move that destroyed Balkom's muscles. OhCrap and LudicrousGibs ensued. ** A subversion similar to what happened to Balkom is the fate of the King of Kiba, who not only was normally tough enough to shrug off being hit on the head with a pillar of concrete, but could make his muscles [[UpToEleven even harder]], as shown when Kenshiro checked his claim by hitting him with an I-beam (the beam was bent, and the King didn't feel anything). At that point the reader already knows that such a trick is useless against Hokuto Shinken due it not defending the pressure points, but Kenshiro, being something of a sadist to bad guys, used a move that made him less tough than the ones of a normal human. OhCrap ensued. ** Parodied with D Tiān-Fēng from the spin-off ''Manga/FistOfTheBlueSky''. Knowing that Li Zōng-Wǔ (an Hokuto Ryuu Ken practitioner) is after his head, he decided to defend himself from his pressure point attacks by procuring a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Pressure Point Defense Suit]], that not only defends his pressure points but electrocutes anyone trying to hit them. When he finally found him on a ship, Li Zōng-Wǔ simply kicked him in the ocean with his rubber-soled boots.

* 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 RomSpaceknight's armor was made of an alien metal he ''legitimately'' couldn't control.

** [[http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Blank Blanks and Pariahs]] may not be exactly the same thing, necessarily. DependingOnTheWriter, sometimes. Blanks nullify psychic powers in a certain radius around them, the same field causing revulsion and discomfort in normal people, and enormous discomfort in psykers. [[{{Ravenor}} Sometimes]] they can have their blankness negated to allow psychics to operate near them. Pariahs additionally lack any presence in the Warp, and can become Culexus assassins, using this fact to power their anti-psychic weaponry.
