* SpiderMan has been shown to be susceptible to pesticides that affect spiders. He can't stick to surfaces that are sufficiently slick. His spider sense can also be rendered useless or even a drawback if faced with overwhelming danger from multiple sources.

Added DiffLines:

** The sense isn't very specific, and can thus be fooled by misdirection. For instance, in one ''ComicBook/WhatIf'' story, the Punisher set a trap with a Dr. Octopus dummy and a bomb. Spidey assumed that his danger sense was going off because he was about to tangle with Doc Ock and never realized the real threat until too late.

** [[spoiler:Yhwach's power as "The Almighty" allows him to see all possible outcomes of an event he focuses on, and to counter anything he can see. However, the "see" in this is quite literal, as the power functions entirely through his eyes. Thus, he's just as vulnerable as anyone else to Aizen's perfect illusions, which leave him seeing ''fake'' possible futures and not able to see the real future in which Uryu temporarily negates his power and Ichigo kills him. Yhwach also fails to anticipate that Ichigo's power will be restored, because his future sight cannot see into the past, and thus can't see the effects of Tsukishima's power to alter the past of anything he stabs. The heroes therefore are able to defeat the final BigBad of the series because the Big Bads of the two previous story arcs assist them, and those two have powers that are perfectly exploit the two very logical weaknesses of Yhwach's otherwise-unbeatable eyes.]]


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/DeadmanWonderland'', the titular Deadmen each have a unique method of controlling their own blood and turning it into a weapon. But they still also need their blood to carry oxygen through their body, just like a normal human would. Most of them create some sort of melee weapon with their blood and thus can just draw it back into their body when they're done with it. But main protagonist Ganta's power is to fire his blood as bullets. This is one of the most powerful of the "Branches of Sin", but since it doesn't allow him to reuse his blood he'll pass out from the blood loss if he fires too many shots. This is exacerbated by the fact that Ganta is still a child and is fairy scrawny, meaning that he has a lower volume of blood to work with in the first place than the various adult Deadmen.

* In the ''WildCards'' books, Philip "Fadeout" Cunningham can turn invisible, but he can't see unless his eyes are visible (as, like anyone, his vision depends on light contacting pigment molecules in his retinas). Fortunately (for him) he can turn parts of himself invisible while leaving others opaque, so he counts on the fact that a pair of floating eyes are hard to spot at a distance, especially in dimly lit areas (plus, he can always make his eyes vanish if hiding is more important than seeing his surroundings).

* In ''Anime/TigerMaskW'' the immense Bigfoot was immediately identified as being poor in ground fighting due his own bulk hampering him and having low stamina due all his fights ending in five minutes. In his fight with Tiger Mask it ends up {{Subverted}} because [[GenreSavvy he or his trainer could guess the weaknesses, so he trained himself to overcome them]] (he actually almost kills Tiger Mask in ground fighting, and [[TheDragon Miss X]] states his stamina is unrivaled).

** [[KillerRabbit Monster Carrot]] can [[TheMagicTouch turn anyone he touches into carrots]], but has to actually ''touch'' them to do so. Goku gets around it by beating him senseless with the [[SimpleStaff Power Pole]].

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11961369/1/Blood-Man-Luffy Blood Man Luffy]]'', Robin notes her powers would be worse than useless against someone like Luffy who can manipulate blood. Sprouting additional limbs would simply give him more blood to control.
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11920206/10/Fighting-for-the-Future Fighting for the Future]]'' by the same author has Robin thinking how Luffy wouldn't have to fear her as she could hardly snap a rubber neck.

* In ''Fanfic/TheBridge'', Enjin has both an extremely strong HealingFactor and AdaptiveAbility meaning fighting it for extended periods of time not only wear the opponent down, as Enjin is a PerpetualMotionMonster, but make it harder and harder for them to fight back and do any damage. Monster X figures out from [[spoiler: Aria Blaze's fight with it]] that Enjin fuels its powers by drawing power from the ground. Knocked into the air and Enjin can't heal or adapt. [[spoiler: A super-charged Monster X kills Enjin by blasting it skyward and tearing Aria out of its core.]]

** Mizu can enter any reflective surface and exit another one. It can also see perfectly in the dark. However, reflections don't exist in complete darkness, so it cannot use that ability if there is no light.

** Medaka's own ability, ''The End'', which allows her to [[PowerCopying copy]] and [[InstantExpert perfect]] anything used against her, is [[SuperPowerLottery incredibly good]], but it has two major weaknesses. First, there are some things (like bloodlust) that really ought not to be perfected (so using her ability on the bloodlust power would simply make her ''more'' bloodthirsty than its original user). Second, it allows her to instantly master the ''technique'' of things. She can't copy things that require self-expression. She has NoSocialSkills because there's no 'right' way to go about befriending people, and she's horrible at music (and presumably the other arts) because with no self-expression, her performances are downright boring. Because of this, she can't copy Styles.

Because of this, she can't copy Styles.

** Byakuya's shikai and bankai manifest as a massive number of tiny razor blades that shred his opponent. However, said blades can also cut him so they always stay a certain distance away from him, thus anyone who can get close enough can't be targeted by his shikai or bankai.
