* [[VillainOfTheWeek The Collector]] can imprison people and objects inside his sketchbook. He has to [[ThrowTheBookAtThem hit you with the book]] to do it, though, which means he can only trap one target at a time, and each sketch takes up a full page, putting a limit on how many times he can use his power.

** Static also defeats a water-based villain using an electric current, thus breaking the water down into its components (he even calls the process, electrolysis, by name).
** However, being splashed by water can short out his ability if he's currently charged up.

** Static is also weak to water when he's charged up since it can short-circuit him. Though the same also happens to foes who copy his powers.
** However, in a move that shows his smarts, he

** Static also has trouble with insulators. This caused problems for him during battles with [[RubberMan Rubber-Band Man]] (Pre-HeelFaceTurn) and Replikon (a VoluntaryShapeshifter who, among other things/people, turned into a wooden mannequin). In these instances, he simply poured enough energy into his attacks that they caused burning/melting.

Added DiffLines:

* Several Devil Fruit weaknesses come up in ''Fanfic/ShinobiOfTheHighSeas'', often in relation to Naruto.
** Jewelry Bonney's age changing powers are useless against Naruto due to him being TheAgeless.
** Smoker's elemental form is weak to strong winds which can disperse him.
** Hancock's [[TakenForGranite Love Love Beam]] doesn't work on someone who's too pissed off to lust after her.
** Since Kizaru turns into light, he's vulnerable to mirrors which can reflect him away from the battlefield. After their first encounter, where Naruto wins by trapping Kizaru in a ring of mirrors before tilting one, Kizaru makes a point of not using his Yatta Mirror technique to prevent a recurrence.
** Whenever Perona uses her AstralProjection, her body is completely helpless. Paulie defeats her by tying up her unconscious body then tossing it into a bathtub full of water.

** ''VideoGame/MegaManX4'' has a notable example with the final boss' first form, a [[spoiler: cloaked GrimReaper [[BigBad Sigma]]]]. He's immune to almost everything and only vulnerable to the weapon/technique obtained from [[spoiler:[[PlayingWithFire Magma Dragoon]], since cloaks are flammable and said fire-based abilities will cause it to burn]].

* ''ComicBook/Batgirl2000'': Cassandra Cain's ability to predict her opponent's moves makes her practically unbeatable in hand-to-hand combat. The only problem is that her abilities rely on her incredible knowledge of human body language, meaning that it's practically useless against aliens, robots, and even some metahumans. In other settings this wouldn't be much of an issue, but given that it's [[FantasyKitchenSink the DCU]], she tends to run into this problem fairly often, though thankfully she's still borderline superhuman in her strength and agility. Notably, Cassandra also ran into problems when facing the ComicBook/TheJoker, of all people. While he would normally not be considered a good enough fighter to pose a threat to a martial artist of her caliber, she has a hard time reading him because, as Batman puts it, "his body language just comes out as gibberish."

** The clones created by the copy machine in the episode "Double Dipper" are made of paper, so naturally they dissolve when doused with liquid.
** In "Sock Opera", Bill Cipher possesses Dipper's body. But while Bill is all-powerful in the mindscape, being in Dipper's body makes him only as dangerous as a noodle-armed twelve-year old. The fact that Dipper had gone several days without sleep AND [[SenseFreak Bill had been purposely injuring the body to experience pain]] only compounds the problem, as Mabel is quick to point out when she and "Bipper" fight.
** In "Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back The Falls", the shield prevents Bill and the Henchmaniacs from damaging the shack. However, Shacktron's limbs are outside the shield, allowing a giant Bill Cipher to rip off the mech's leg and beat it into submission.

* Armors in ''VideoGame/LetItDie'' have their weaknesses mostly justified by their factions. D.O.D Arms are repurposed construction outfits like traincoat and work aprons which are resistant to elemental hazards but less so to regular attacks, War Ensemble are modern military gears which are great against projectiles but weak to slashing weapons, Candlewolf have fantasy armor really strong against slashing but less so against firearm and blunt weapon and M.I.L.K's gear are BloodSport uniforms which give them resistance to blunt attack but not slashing.

** Rock Lee has a really obvious weakness that stops him from being among the strongest ninja: [[CripplingOverspecialization He can't use ninjutsu or genjutsu, two-thirds of the fundamental ninja arts.]]

** Rock Lee has a really obvious weakness that stops him from being among the strongest ninja: [[CripplingOverspecialization He can't use ninjutsu or genjutsu, two-thirds of the fundamental ninja arts.]]]] So while he can move and hit hard he can't defeat illusions or enemy that can counter physical attack (his rival Neiji for example can reflect any attack with his Eight Trigrams Palms Revolving Heaven jutsu and his gentle fist attack organs and chakra point which no amount of physical conditioning can stop)

** The Solar Flare technique blinds the opponent with a bright flash of light. It can be countered by simply wearing sunglasses.

to:

** Due to their large ears, Namekians has [[SuperSenses super-hearing]]. As revealed in ''[[Anime/DragonBallZLordSlug Lord Slug]]'', this makes them sensitive to high-pitched noises like whistling. The heroes exploit this when Slug [[MakeMyMonsterGrow assumes his giant form]], making his eardrums the size of trash can lids; the sound incapacitates Slug with pain. [[GoodThingYouCanHeal Piccolo]] gets around it by [[DisabilityImmunity ripping off his own ears so he can't hear it]].
** The Solar Flare technique blinds the opponent with a bright flash of light. It can be countered by simply wearing sunglasses. As shown during the Universe Survival Saga of ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', it also doesn't work if the opponent is blind.

Added DiffLines:

** The Dark Side in general has one: it relies on letting emotions go completely wild and [[DrunkOnTheDarkSide throwing away control]], which comes at the price of promoting [[{{Pride}} overconfidence]] and losing focus on their surroundings in their sadism.
