** Despite being designed to sink other ships, battleships had a tough time sinking other battleships without assistance. A battleships biggest weakness is the torpedo, a weapon the battleship wasn't particularly skilled with if they even carried. Sure Battleships could damage each other a lot, but they couldn't really damage the opponent bellow the water line so it was typical for a losing battleship to simply attempt to break contact and run home for repairs. The only time a battleship sunk another battleship unaided by other friendly ships was the second naval battle of Guadalcanal, where the significantly bigger and more well armed ''USS Washington'' was able to sneak up to the ''IJN Kirishima'' and critically damage her to the point she needed to be scuttled.

*** Well, except for [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Action_of_9_February_1945 that one time...]]. And even beyond that, there were instances of one submarine getting a drop on another surfaced submarine. Subs didn't spend all of their time submerged, mainly because they couldn't, they had a limited supply of air and had to conserve it, so they would surface when travelling in relatively safe areas. The aforementioned HMS Venturer, which is famous as the only sub to have sunk another sub in combat while both were at periscope, was also responsible for the sinking of two U-Boats, U-771 and U-864(The one where they were both submerged). Both were sunk with torpedoes. Actually, there hasn't been an instance of one sub ''intentionally'' sinking another sub ''since'' the Second World War, and no instances of them doing so with guided torpedos[[note]][[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torpedo#Guidance There were some acoustic homing guided torpedoes]] used by the Germans and Americans late in the war, as well as programmable ones used by the Germans. Technically, radio controlled torpedoes date back to the First World War, but they were just experimental and only surface launched.[[/note]], as the Venturer used unguided torpedoes and [[AwesomenessByAnalysis the crew manually calculated U-864's position]].

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

* 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.

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.
