* In CSLewis' ''[[Literature/TheSpaceTrilogy Perelandra]]'', Ransom finds himself tasked with preventing the eponymous planet from failing its ForbiddenFruit test, while a demonic presence with no physiological needs opposes him. The solution? [[spoiler: Said demonic presence is only there because it [[DemonicPossession piggybacked along]] on a human host, who can be physically killed. The mundanity of the solution is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]], as it takes Ransom a while to accept that doing so would be a valid way of solving his predicament.]]

* In ''Series/KamenRiderDrive'', the Ride Chaser can combine with the Ride Macher to create the [[MiniMecha Ride Crosser]]. While Gou can hijack Chaser's bike to form it, Chaser can use the Ride Crosser against them just as well. Their solution? Kill Chase? Coat Gou's bike in some kind of anti-Roidmude spray? Nope. Just leave it at the base.

** Magical disguises, whether [[LieToTheBeholder illusory]] or [[{{Humanshifting}} polymorphic]], can be defeated by anything from a lowly Detect Magic to the high-level spell True Seeing. A regular old disguise, however, can be every bit as effective, and looks completely normal to the most astute supernatural observer.
