* The Beast Spear form ''Manga/UshioAndTora'' is an EmpathicWeapon which was forged to kill [[BigBad Hakumen no Mono]] and can slay {{Youkai}} of all sorts with ease, though sometimes they may have defenses against the terrible blade. Most notably, the blade is lethal only to Youkai, as it phases harmlessly through human people. In fact, when Ushio has to face human opponents, he has to hit them with the wooden pole of the weapon. Subverted instead with the buddhist weapons (staves, vajra and dharma wheels) employed by the Kohamei sect, as they simply channel and increase the spiritual power of the user and have no demon-slaying propriety on their own.

* 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 ''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.]]

* 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.]]
