Greatest Weakness Attack

A technique that would hurt you more than your enemies.

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
(Note, this can't simply be something so strong that it kills anyone outright if reflected, that's a Dangerous Forbidden Technique.)

This refers to something that because of the character's unique physiology, would be somewhat powerful on your opponents, but absolutely devastating to you. For example, if a ice-based creature started casting fire magic, an aquatic creature cast lightning, an angel cast dark magic, or a warrior in heavy plate armor cast lightning.

All that it would take for an instant death is a simple spell reflection. So why would they do this?

Alternately, if it's literature or a video game, they may either doing this so the priest isn't so useless, or to give a viable reason for the hero with no attack spells winning against someone who's powerful in a wide range of magic.
