*** According to the Pokédex, some Ditto have trouble with the whole "conservation of mass" thing, resulting in them retaining their size when they transform.

* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'': Averted, at least in some versions. Dragons are immune to their own fire, but not any fires started by it.

* ''GuildWars2'''s recent ''Path of Fire'' expansion adds mounts with special movement abilities to explore the new maps. The Springer is the second mount unlocked, its special ability is a very high charged jump. It also comes with a very high tolerance to fall damage (it needs to fall from very high before taking any damage at all), for a pretty obvious reason.

* Elemental-themed VideoGame/{{Warframe}}s aren't immune to their own elements; eg. an Ember can take fire damage (but gains a damage increase when on fire), a Frost can have his shields reduced or be slowed by cold and a Volt can be electrocuted by a electrical trap.

** It's also pretty obvious that Tails has not only some kind of healing ability, but an anchoring one as well, explaining why his tails stay attached to him whenever he flies. He's also been shown to be incredibly durable otherwise. Likewise, his tails must also be very strong to achieve flight (with ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' having him carry himself, Sonic and Knuckles simultaneously) as proved in this [[Because Science video https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjRyZDv3aXWAhXBNSYKHdiUBtQQtwIILjAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DBFlk1LehjwA&usg=AFQjCNFXNX3lnamiLEhOjuIf4AtyF_quGA]]. Additionally, his tails being able to support his flight basically means they are very strong, which explains how he can use them as very effective [[TailSlap offensive weapons]], even against robots.

** Ditto and Mew can physically transform into any other species of Pokémon, but when turning into something like Wailord or Groudon they surely have a way to defeat the whole Conservation of Mass thing.

** Ditto and Mew can physically transform into any other species of Pokémon, but when turning into something like Wailord or Groudon they surely have a way to defeat the whole Conservation of Mass thing. Conceivably, Mew can project an image of the mon it's transforming into on its subject's mind as well as the attacks its using and the requisite amount of pain and effects from them. Ditto, though...

* The water breathing potion in ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' makes it so that you drown in the air while it has its effect. However, if you wear a fish bowl on your head, you can go in and out of water just fine.

* ''VideoGame/BioShock'': In an aversion, the main characters of the games aren't immune to their own plasmids/vigors. This doesn't cause you any harm, but it makes for some interesting BodyHorror; fire abilities char the skin of your hands, ice abilities cause visible frostbite, and you don't want to know about [[BeeBeeGun Insect Swarm]].

Suchong also mentions in an Audio Diary that the telekinesis plasmid could theoretically [[BulletCatch catch bullets]] if human reaction time was quick enough, which gives him a new plasmid idea.

*** And never mind his ultimate attack of calling down a sustained bolt of lightning several meters in diameter. In-game physics demand he stand on top of a generator or a dynamo and channel the immense electrical energy there into a literal bolt from the blue, though how he changes energy from a grounded source to cloud-based lightning is unexplained, and it still has all the heat and intensity of a bolt of lightning.
