** 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''.

** The [[OneManArmy mercenary Kincaid]] always brings special weapons to his battles, including exploding-tipped spears and paint guns that shoot holy water balls. He's also DangerouslyGenreSavvy, and explains to Harry that the way to kill him without falling prey to his death curse would be sniping him from a thousand yards away, killing him before he even notices the shot. [[spoiler:It works. [[OnlyMostlyDead But Harry gets better,]] [[MemoryGambit to Dresden's dismay]].]]

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' introduces Ninjas and Outlaws, plysical-based classes with high magic resistance that use Shuriken and Bows respectively, both long-ranged weapons good for luring and counter-attacking magic users. And in the case of Ninjas, shuriken beat magic in TacticalRockPaperScissors. [[BattleButler Maids and Butlers]] also become this at higher levels, using shuriken/daggers, having his resistance and learning the Tomebreaker skill (+50 hit and evasion against magic users).
