* ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog'' had the Kangaroo Monster, a creature so {{Badass}} the only thing that could harm it...was ''another'' Kangaroo Monster!

* ''WesternAnimation/GerryAndersonsNewCaptainScarlet'' introduced a Russian super-tank the size of a small apartment building called a Druzhnik, which was set up as being pretty much entirely untouchable by conventional weapons; a [[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberianSeries GDI Mammoth Tank]] might've had a chance in a 1v1 but the heaviest weapons SPECTRUM had access to just bounced off it. The third time the Mysterons managed to swipe one, in the grand GerryAnderson tradition of PropRecycling, Scarlet pretty much quoted the trope word for word:

** The Ghost type also has a weakness to itself, though they're vulnerable to a number of other types as well. Since Giratina is of both types, it is often the best counter to itself.

* Similar to ''Pokémon'', the Dragon element in the ''MonsterHunter'' games is the best one against Wyverns.

* In a similar situation in ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'', [[MadScientist Dexter]] uses a giant stone UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln ([[RuleOfCool who shoots missles out of his hat!]]) to fight [[TheRival Mandark's]] giant stone UsefulNotes/GeorgeWashington. However, the trope is [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] when the two stone presidents find out they are honest men who have a lot in common, stop fighting, and walk off as friends.
** In another episode Dexter gives Dee Dee what he thinks is a silencing potion, but instead mutates her into a monster. The only way to get her to shut up? To become a giant monster himself and have a knock-down, drag-out kaiju battle!

** "The Laughing" features a variant. Dexter becomes a mischief-making [[MonsterClown were-clown]], and Dee Dee subdues him by learning [[YourMimeMakesItReal the art of mime]].

* In ''FinalFantasyTactics'', the "Faith" stat dictates not only a mage's attack power, but how much damage they incur from enemy spells as well. A character with very low Faith is thus virtually immune to magic, while a character with high Faith is very vulnerable.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', it's believed that one way to kill a nigh-invulnerable First Guardian (or a creature possessing its powers) is to send another to fight it. This isn't precisely true; it's just that the First Guardians possess so much raw power that they're in their own tier, and very little even comes close. It is suggested, for instance, that God-Tiered Vriska at her full strength, making full use of her luck-manipulation powers, and cheating her ass off (as she usually does) would have a chance at defeating one... even if a slim chance.

In many works of fiction, there are creatures that are ImmuneToBullets, MadeOfIron, and in worst-case scenarios have no KryptoniteFactor. Even [[NukeEm nuking them]] has no effect. But fear not, for while these creatures may be immune to [[KillItWithFire fire]], [[ImmuneToBullets bullets]], [[NukeEm nuclear weapons]], [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and MTV]], these monsters still have one weakness...another member of their own kind.
