* In ''VideoGame/NetHack'' items made from silver deal bonus damage against vampires, lycanthropes, shades and demons. This includes silver weapons (silver saber, silver spears, etc.), ammunition (silver arrows), and even items which just happen to be made out of silver (silver rings and wands. Fighting bare-handed without gloves while wearing a silver ring will apply silver damage).

* In the TabletopGame/D20Modern Urban Arcana setting, one of the numerous new bullets available (and the only type that can't be bought but must be crafted) are silver bullets. They are perfect against {{lycanthrope}}.

* ''Film/TheManWithTheGoldenGun'' film has the titular villain equipped with a golden gun (assembled from [[IKEAWeaponry ordinary-looking parts]]) which was then loaded with gold bullets engraved with the name of their targets. Averted because the bullets had no supernatural powers - Scaramanga was really ''that good''.

** Doc nearly lost his own life to a silver bullet, fired from the very pistol with which Hitler committed suicide. Apparently the combination of the two was enough bad mojo to get through his magical protections.

A solution that comes up surprisingly rarely is silver-''jacketed'' rounds, coating a lead projectile in a shell of silver in the way regular bullets use copper. This would increase the mass of the bullet while decreasing the amount of silver you need per round (and since the silver jacket could be quite thin, its hardness would be unlikely to impair the bullet engaging the barrel's rifling), but the manufacturing process isn't something a VampireHunter could {{MacGyver|ing}} in their garage.

Another solution would be a [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter shotgun]] with shells packed with silver shot; this, too, is seldom used, but would be even easier than silver-jacketed rounds to make (and no rifling issues since shotguns don't have rifling in the first place).

* Subverted in a {{ComicBook/Wolverine}} annual that had Wolverine and Deadpool teamed up against a werewolf. After figuring out adamantium doesn't work, Wolverine grabs Deadpool's swords and hacks away. [[NoSell That doesn't work either.]]
--> '''Wolverine:''' 'Pool, your swords?
--> '''Deadpool:''' What? Silver's expensive! Chrome looks just as good!

* In every game of ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', enemies such as ghosts and wraiths can only be harmed by weapons that are enchanted, or made of silver. Werewolves are also vulnerable against it.

* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}''[='s=] resident NinjaMaid Sakuya wields silver [[KnifeNut knives]]; rather than fighting vampires, however, she works for them. This fact helps fuel the EpilepticTree that she was a VampireHunter who came to Scarlet Devil Mansion to slay Remilia but ended up getting hired by her instead.

** Werewolves in Teen Wolf aren't especially susceptible to silver, but rather their bane is the Argent family (Argent being French for silver). [[spoiler: It's eventually revealed that Beast of Gevaudan required very specific methods to kill it, including a silver spear-tip.]]
