* In ''Film/HappyGilmore'', Happy uses a running start for his golf swing. This actually can add distance in real life, but no one uses it seriously because it's impossible to drive accurately this way. Happy, on the other hand, is able to drive so accurately with a running start that he makes a par 4 hole-in-one.

** More generally, people who can ignore the Manton Effect (the tendency of powers to be unable to directly affect people) are very rare and valuable.

* Depending on the [[MultipleChoicePast year/dimension/day-of-the-week]]: PowerGirl is a kryptonian who is immune/resistant to kryptonite because she's really an alternate universe kryptonian. This is because Kryptonians are only susceptible to kryptonite from their own universe, and Power Girl (usually) isn't from the main story Krypton.

** Much of Elizabeth's story in ''Persona4Arena'' revolves around her trying to learn more about the nature of this "Wild Card" ability that the P3 and P4 protagonists possess. [[RealityWarper She can already do pretty much anything]], but even to her it remains something special and mysterious.

Huge stretch to say it had to do with this trope - who's the hero who lacks the common weakness? (I thought of species imported from elsewhere that outcompete the locals, but that's still a stretch.)
* Evolution is nature's way of countering or mitigating the weaknesses of lifeforms. However, it is undirected and settles for adequacy, which may cause weaknesses that can become far more crippling in future conditions. It's also REALLY slow for us multicellular organisms. ** The advent of sexual reproduction was an important milestone in directing and accelerating this process for several reasons, since it allowed for a great variance of gene combinations from the parents that made a successful random mutation being spread more likely.

* Eli Monpress in [[TheSpiritThief The Spirit Thief]] has the ability to simply talk to spirits and convince them to do his bidding, as opposed to the other wizards in the world who need to make pacts with spirits in order to access their power.

* Clare, the protagonist of ''{{Claymore}}'', seems to be [[spoiler:completely immune to [[TheCorruption Awakening]] (even when she is deliberately trying to!), which threatens every other Claymore]]. The main reason for that is believed to be [[spoiler:Jean's sacrifice to bring her back from the brink of Awakening before, which left Clare with a psychological block that prevents her from transforming]], though this may also have something to do with her being only quarter-yoma.

* ''ShakuganNoShana'''s Yuji Sakai isn't doomed to [[RetGone vanish from existence]] like other Torches thanks to a special artifact that periodically replenishes his energy. * ''RosarioPlusVampire'': After a series of near-death instances, Tsukune gains vampire powers from various blood transfusions. Unlike the female lead Moka, this comes without the WeaksauceWeakness. He effectively has no weaknesses (well, other than the potential to go [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity berserk]] and [[CreepyCoolCrosses Crucifixes]]), which gives him an advantage.

** Many [[HunterOfHisOwnKind vampire hunter]] series with a [[{{Dhampyr}} half-breed]] protagonist, like VampireHunterD, have a similar theme. And even then they aren't immune; they are just so powerful that they resist the effects. In D's case, it's because [[LamarckWasRight of his father]].

* Jane from ''[[Literature/{{TheIronDragonsDaughter}} The Iron Dragon's Daughter]]'' has this nice passive skill of being immune to regular defensive in-world charms, since they are helpless against human blood.

* In addition to physical deformities, the other Borners in the anime ''{{Canaan}}'' have to take regular shots of medication to avoid death from their [[TheVirus virus]]-originated superpowers. The eponymous protagonist has neither of these problems (though her hair did go white because of them). For comparison, another character who received an internal and therefore invisible physical mutation, in her case two appendixes. [[BlessedWithSuck Not exactly]] super-powered synthesia. It does [[FridgeLogic bring up the question]] of if she'd still have to take the medication if she got them removed, too...
