* In ''TheWitcher'' series, silver is especially effective at warding off and causing pain for monsters. Hence, it's customary for Witchers, trained monster slayers, to fight them using silver-plated swords and to have silver lining their armor.

* Like the book series it's based off of, silver is especially effective against monsters in ''TheWitcher'' games. Geralt carries a silver one for dealing with them alongside a steel sword for humans, though as he puts it, "[[HumansAreBastards both are for monsters.]]"

** Throughout the series, certain supernatural enemies such as ghosts and wraiths can only be harmed by weapons of silver quality (or greater), or by enchanted weapons. Items of greater than silver quality tend to have their own supernatural properties which justify their ability to harm these types of beings. (For example, [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemer/Dwarven]] equipment was created and [[RagnarokProofing made to last]] using [[RealityWarper Reality Warping]] processes; [[FantasyMetals Ebony]] equipment is made from the [[BodyToCrystal petrified blood]] of a [[GodIsDead dead god]]; Daedric equipment is made from Ebony which has been [[SoulPower imbued with the souls]] of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]], etc.)

* 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; the werewolf-hunting Silver Hand in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' always wield such weapons.
** [[InfinityPlusOneSword Daedric weapons]] also work against those types of enemies. In-game books explain that daedric weapons fall under the "enchanted" category, since it's made by applying certain spells to ebony ([[CallASmeerpARabbit a kind of mineral]]).
