* The rules of magic in ''FanFic/TheApprenticeTheStudentAndTheCharlatan'' hold that the First Fundamental Law is that, no matter how powerful one source is compared to the other, magic cannot pierce or go through magic through natural means. Magic can push other magic back, but it can't go through other magic. Given the author's attempt at having magic operate under quantum physics, it's justified InUniverse by magic automatically snapping to particle state when interacting with other magic. However, enter the [[{{Magitech}} magi-gun]], which somehow manages to force magic into wave state when around other magic, making all forms of magical shields useless, and it's treated as such a dangerous weapon that the protagonist resolves to have it destroyed when its usefulness has run out.

** It explores the ramifications of this trope a bit, as well. Enchanted clothing by default comes with spell-shielding (though there are specific enchantments that give its article more energy to repel magical attacks, given that magic particles annihilate each other on contact), enchantments have to constantly be repaired after every run-in with magic, and ponies can't teleport through shields, but can teleport around them if it isn't a full encasement.

** Bombers have a tough time with other bombers since they are focused almost entirely on air to ground combat. In the unlikely event that two enemy bombers meet without escorts they could only try and kill each other with self defense armament. Bombers ''can'' carry air to air missiles but are extremely unlikely to mix these with traditional Air to Ground weapons. \
** Anti air units have the same problem as bombers in reverse, their primary armament is focused on anti air and can't attack other ground units.

** ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'':\\\
Wolverine faces Weapon XI, which has an adamantium [[KatanasAreJustBetter katana]].\\\
William Stryker shoots Wolverine in the head with adamantium bullets (which is kinda justified, as a bullet, which is really fast, could have more impact than a blade). [[HealingFactor Doesn't kill him]], [[EasyAmnesia but it does give him amnesia]] -- presumably the shock of the impact gave him severe brain damage and his HealingFactor couldn't piece all his memories back together.

* This is known as the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irresistible_force_paradox Irresistable force paradox]] which dictates that if no one knows what will happen if an unstoppable force meets an immovable object, it's considered self-contradiction.

* Cyclops and Havok from the Comicbook/{{X-Men}} are immune to each other's energy projection powers, and being brothers, they are alike on the genetic level (except Scott and Alex's DNAs seem to deviate at different points, considering how their powers work differently from one another).

Typically neither weapon will be affected at all; on rarer occasions, both will be destroyed utterly, or pass entirely through each other. The effect is the same in all cases- the phlebotinum weapons effectively cancel each other out, and only a direct hit on the opponent will end the duel... Which is also likely to kill them unless your ImplausibleFencingPowers are good enough to disarm them without, y'know, [[AnArmAndALeg "disarming"]] them.
