"To be fair, Supermanís had like 30 years of soaking up the sun to charge him up, and Nuclear Manís only been around for five minutes. But at the same time, it does kind of seem like a pretty awful move to kick off a master plan that can be foiled by Venetian blinds."
—Chris Sims on Superman IV: The Quest for Peace
"At first glance, Green Lantern seems like the only Superfriend who's up to Superman levels of power. He can make anything he wants just by thinking about it, plus he has a snazzy outfit. But then there's his weakness: yellow. A primary color, for God's sake! 'Big Bird! You have defeated me once again!' 'Lemon-scented dishwashing liquid! Lo! I am foiled!' 'Marshmallow peeps! Nooooooooooo!'"
— Lore Sjoberg, The Book of Ratings, "More Superfriends"
"Make no mistake: I have a $70,000 sliver of a radioactive meteor to stop the one from Metropolis. With you, all I need is a penny for a book of matches."
"Aah! Teddy bears thrown at me! My one weakness!"
— Sigma, Mega Man X: the Maverick Breakdown
I used to make fun of Green Lantern for being vulnerable to the colour yellow! Then I choked on my orange juice one morning and nearly suffocated.
But for every very mild super power, there's a very mild super weakness too: I get nauseous 'round the smell of bins, I'm afraid of certain shop mannequins, I hate the cheese that's individually sliced and vacuum-wrapped in plastic, I can never tell when people are being sarcastic
—David O'Doherty, Very Mild Superpowers
You're one of those, right? Can't stand sunlight or odorous vegetables, or silver things. You know, the masters of the night with tons of weaknesses for some reason...
—Marisa Kirisame, Embodiment Of Scarlet Devil.
I'm a vampire, nothing can hurt me! Well, except for stakes... and daylight... and holy water... and garlic... oh, hey, whoa! There are a lot of things that can hurt me!

Susan: Now... you won't be coming around here again, will you? Otherwise it's the blanket next time.
Susan: I mean it. We'll put your head under the blanket.
Susan: It's got fluffy bunnies on it.
Rory: It doesn't do wood? That's rubbish!
Doctor: Oi! Don't diss the sonic!
