* While ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' has several examples of this that are played straight, it also parodies this with the [[TalkLikeAPirate Safarrri Hat]], which grants "+15 damage against Lions". Thing is; there's only one lion in the entire game and it's not a particularly difficult encounter. [[DevelopersForesight It does work as advertised, however.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=401911 Hedron Blade]] from ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' can grant its wielder the [[OneHitKill Deathtouch]] ability in combat with colorless creatures. Flavor-wise this is likely meant to deal with [[EldritchAbomination the Elderazi]], but in practice it works just as well against the vast majority of artifact creatures.

* While effective to the point of overkill in most situations, the ''[[SenkiZesshouSymphogear Symphogear]]'' system was initially developed to combat a type of EldritchAbomination called the Noise. More specifically, using a Symphogear forces any Noise within earshot into a tangible state that ''can'' be slain in the first place, and makes the wielder immune to their TouchOfDeath.

* ''WebAnimation/DeathBattle'': Pokemon vs. Digimon had Charizard (and its Mega X form) face Greymon (and its evolutions). [[spoiler:Mega Charizard X is a [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Dragon-type]] pokemon, and [=WarGreymon's=] Dramon Destroyers are [[TheDragonslayer extremely effective against Dragons]]. It does not end well for Charizard, and this property is one of the many reasons why the Digimon take this battle.]]

* In ''Videogame/PlanetSide 2'', the [=NS-AM7=] "Archer" rifle hits like a wet noodle against vehicles and infantry - in fact, it's the only bolt action rifle that can't kill [[BoomHeadshot with one headshot]] - but has a massive damage multiplier against MAX PowerArmor and is able to kill them with three body shots or two headshots.

[[spoiler:It is the sword formerly owned by Lucatiel of Mirrah from ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'', and the damage bonus comes from her intense fear of losing her memories and sense of self due to Hollowing, which still lingers within the blade many years later]].
