* ''The Haunter in the Dark'', the titular monster in a story by Creator/HPLovecraft, is an avatar of the god Nyarlatothep. It's a huge winged and tentacled mass of darkness with a three-lobed burning eye, whose touch will burn the flesh from your bones. However, it's extremely vulnerable to light. Even little light will hurt it, and strong light will banish it. So you can temporarily defeat an avatar of an ancient and evil god with ''a flashlight!''. Temporarily. As soon as the lights are out, it can come back, just as nasty as before.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'''s ''Dragonborn'' DLC adds Lurkers, a [[FishPeople fish-like]] form of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] in service to Hermaeus Mora, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[KeeperOfForbiddenKnowledge Knowledge]]. Lurkers are an immensely powerful GiantMook type of foe, with strong physical attacks including a ShockwaveStomp, several forms of CombatTentacles, and an [[SuperSpit Acid Spit]] attack. They also have a rapid HealingFactor and [[AntiMagic resist almost every form of Destruction magic]]. However, they do not have a resistance to Paralysis. Paralysis is a UselessUsefulSpell throughout much of the game due to how many high-level foes resist it or are outright immune to it. Not Lurkers. A Paralysis spell or poison applied to a weapon can leave them as a helpless sitting duck in the middle of battle.

* In what might be one of the most literal examples of this trope, one episode of ''ScoobyDoo'' featured a villain known as Chameleon who was a MasterOfDisguse, capable of disguising himself so flawlessly as to be completely unrecognizable. His one flaw? He hated Worcestershire sauce. So much that whenever someone so much as ''mentioned'' the condiment, he felt compelled to break character to scream about how much he hated Worcestershire sauce.
