* {{Mistborn}} has Hazekillers, warriors specifically trained for taking on Allomancers. While they do fine against single-metal users, they're not so hot against the titular sorcerers, who can use all the metals' powers.

** The Mandalorians (aka Boba Fett's people) are basically a ProudWarriorRace of mercenaries, although a decent chunk of their job description involved battling Jedi using their SwissArmyWeapon suits. And oftentimes losing to them. They ''really'' need to improve on that. Still, they're one of the few forces that can be counted on to give the superpowered Jedi or Sith a fight of it at least.

* According to the "Worlds of Freedom" sourcebook for the ''TabletopGame/MutantsAndMasterminds'' setting ''TabletopGame/FreedomCity'', one of the GoldenAge superheroes who operated out of Freedom City was The Mysterious Madame Radium, whose power over radiation allowed her to shut down any superpowers that stemmed from a genetic basis. After being brought to Erde (aka "the requisite ParallelUniverse where the Nazis won WorldWarII"), she finds this ability very handy, as the bulk of the Nazi's super-soldiers are natural-born or artificially created mutants.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm'' some of the ''Assassin'' heroes qualify, due to mage heroes in the game being [[Main/SquishyWizard Squishy Wizards]]:
** [[VideoGame/{{Overwatch}} Tracer]] and [[VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} Illidan]] are highly effective in taking out mage heroes due to their skills granting them absurd amount of mobility to continously attack mages.
** [[StealthExpert Stealth]] heroes like [[Franschise/{{Starcraft}} Nova, Zeratul]], and [[VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} Samuro]] also qualify. Relying on surpise attacks, they can actually make short work on any mage hero, especially with Zeratul and Samuro with their mobility skills.
** As with [[VideoGame/StarCraftIILegacyOfTheVoid Alarak]], his abilities make him terrifyingly good at this. Telekinesis can be used to force mage heroes towards him, where he can shred them to bits. Discord Strike comes with a Silence which is absolutely devastating to any spellcaster. And since the abilities of mage heroes tend to be telegraphed, he can use Counter-Strike to heavily punish such attempts.

** Ninjas in the [[FinalFantasyTactics original]]. Their Double Attack and High Strength will One-Round Mage Classes far more often than not.

** In [[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Genealogy Of The Holy War]]'', the second generation [[TheHero Lord]], Seliph, is often set for this role due to his high RES growth and his Legendary Weapon giving him an additional 20 RES. And most mages are {{Squishy Wizard}}s. The player can also raise his usual stats by leveling up his mom during the time that she's playable, making him even better at this.

* [[CastingAShadow Dark]] [[CombatPragmatist type]] {{Pokemon}} were introduced in ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'' to counter the GameBreaker [[PsychicPowers Psychic]] type. They are outright [[NoSell immune]] to Psychic attacks and their attacks do [[ElementalRockPaperScissors double damage.]] They invoke the BadassNormal feel of this trope by appearing to be ordinary animals.

** Veigar acts as one as well despite being a mage himself, since his ultimate relies on the number of Ability Points (basically the game's version of magic damage) the opponent has to deal any noticeable damage. On characters like [[MagicallyIneptFighter Rammus]], it barely does a thing. On [[SquishyWizard Cassopeia]] or even [[MirrorMatch himself]] it tends to do more than ''half their HP''.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' this is not a trait of any particular type of character. It ''IS'' however, a rule of thumb for [[EverthingTryingToKillYou all of them,]] expressed in the phrase "Geek the mage first!"
