Contrast SelfDefenseless, where tasers and similar less-lethal fail to work even against people they logically should.

* Subverted in the ''NewJediOrder'' series. During an otherwise successful attempt to capture a [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Yuuzhan Vong]] infiltrator on Coruscant, Mara Jade Skywalker hits him with multiple stun shots from her blaster with no effect whatsoever. Medical scans of the prisoner later on reveal that redundancies in the Yuuzhan Vong nervous system render them invulnerable to stun shots

The same technology is later issued to the Equalist [[{{Mooks}} rank-and-file]] in the form of taser gloves, and proves equally effective against them when Asami acquires one.

There's a slight element of TruthInTelevision to this. Tear gas or pepper-spray rely on the fact they hurt so badly that you can't do anything but curl up in a ball and holler in pain, but people with very high pain-tolerance (either [[MadeOfIron natural]] or [[PsychoSerum chemically-enhanced]] can sometimes at least partly overcome them by sheer force of will. Tasers completely bypass all that by blasting the nerve receptors in your muscles with electrical impulses, bypassing the input from your brain entirely. (Which isn't to say it doesn't really, ''really'' hurt as well, mind you.) There's no way to overcome ''that'' by HeroicWillpower, or villainous willpower for that matter.

* A fan movie based on Batman, titled as Death of Batman. While the battle against a simple criminal started with CurbStompBattle from Batman, the criminal is a CombatPragmatist who doesn't hesitate to play dirty. He used stun-gun to [[GroinAttack taser Batman's groin]]! Although this isn't immediately incapacitate the dark knight, it's enough to make him let his guard down, allowing the criminal to knee him in that sensitive area.
