** The final spellcard of the final boss, as well as all extra stage bosses are immune to bomb damage. [[spoiler: except in fairy wars - Perfect Freeze works as well on the 3 fairies and Marisa as it does on anything else in the game.]] Kanako's final spellcard is particularly unfair in this manner since against her final spellcard, bombs even lose most of their bullet clearing ability. And she's the stage 6 boss. In addition to these situations, there are survival spellcards, which render the user literally invincible, the only way forward is to time it out. All Extra bosses from Flandre onwards have at least one.
** And then there is of course Reimu's final spellcard, Fantasy Heaven, which allows her fly... ''away from reality'', essentially making her immune to ''everything'', up to and including all forms of {{Reality Warp|er}}ing. WordOfGod has it that if she didn't put a time limit on it in accordance with the spellcard rules, she'd be completely invincible.

* In ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]'', wearing the Thunder Helm gives you complete immunity to lightning-based damage. This means that you can wear as much metal as you want in a thunderstorm and walk right out of being struck by a bolt from on high, giving god the proverbial middle finger. In less dramatic examples, upgrading the Flamebreaker, Rubber, and Snowquill armor sets twice give you immunity being burned, shocked, or frozen while wearing all three parts. If nothing else, it makes fighting Keese and Chus cathartic.

** In the backstory (depicted in ''LightNovel/FateZero''), Gilgamesh No Sells [[spoiler:the Holy Grail pouring out all of the world's evil at once, declaring that because he is "the King of all mankind", he has the authority to take responsibility for mankind's collective sins, thus those sins cannot corrupt him. Whether it was because of that or just because Gilgamesh's ego is roughly the size of a galaxy, he turns out correct: the Grail cannot corrupt him. He does it again in the "Heaven's Feel" scenario, when the Shadow tries to corrupt him but can't, and has to hurriedly eat him before ''he'' kills ''it''.]]

** With Null-Point Calibration Unit out, Absolute Zero isn't just immune to ice damage, he actually heals from it.

to:

** Ra's Flesh of the Sun God makes him immune to fire, and can make the entire team immune to fire for a turn with a power use. This can lead to hilarious results against bad guys who rely upon the heroes damaging themselves (Plague Rat, for example), since Ra is also able to turn all the team's damage into fire with a different card.
** Advanced Gloomweaver is immune to melee and projectile damage, as is Shu of the Ennead.
** Mr Fixer with Jack Handle turns self-inflicted damage into a rain of blows on all enemies.
** Most of Grand Warlord Voss's minions are immune to the kind of damage they deal, and his flying battleships are unsurprisingly melee-resistant.
** With Null-Point Calibration Unit out, Absolute Zero isn't just immune to ice damage, he actually heals from it. With Isothermic Transducer out as well, you can also fake fire immunity; unless it would outright finish you, the fire damage triggers the same amount of cold damage (possibly more with the right cards out) and lets you heal it back immediately.

* When written right, this is what makes the Juggernaut such a fearsome foe - with power of Cyttorak, he becomes the unstoppable force the moment he starts moving. This is why, especially in the early days, everyone made a scramble to remove his helmet and hit him with a psychic blast as everything else didn't work. Among the things he has been hit by without budging an inch have been a tanker truck full of fuel ([[MolotovTruck which naturally exploded on impact]]), Cannonball flying full tilt at him ''twice'', and Thor throwing his hammer at him.

** In "The Super-Duel in Space", the first battle with Brainiac had Superman the victim of this trope. Thanks to the villain's forcefield, nothing Superman could throw bothered him, or his ship. Superman even tried throwing chunks of an asteroid the size of islands to no avail.

* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' [[WhiteMagicianGirl Tear]]'s Force Field spell makes anyone effected by it invulnerable for five seconds. Not quite as easy to pull off (it's a limited area spell) but well timed and placed and it can let you have a character tank [[LimitBreak Mystic Artes]]. SpiritualSuccessor ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' has [[PrincessClassic Estelle]] gain her own version through a sidequest; that one lasts ten seconds but has the same difficulty of getting someone effected by it. Also, [[HeroicDog Repede] has the self targetting "Gale Dog". It's been used to come out of a boss fight with [[VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny2 Barbotos]] with ScratchDamage.
