* Subverted in ''Comicbook/{{Justice}}'', when [[spoiler: the villains are tricked into thinking Superman is the one in the Kryptonite proof suit - nope, it's [[Comicbook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]].]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/TheAdventuresOfSuperboy'', Superboy hastily puts together a suit of lead armor for a fight against Metallo. Unfortunately it's not super-strength proof, so Metallo tears it to shreds in a matter of seconds. [[spoiler:The gloves did prove useful once Superboy managed to rip his kryptonite chunk out.]]

Added DiffLines:

** In its [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness first implementation]], the Nihil skill in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGenealogyOfTheHolyWar''. This skill has the same effect as other games, where it nullifies not just battle skills (though those skills like Astra, Luna, and Sol, are rare) but also negate critical hits. In that game, weaknesses like bows on fliers are considered critical hits, so when they have Nihil, they are no longer weak to bows. For example, Alec has Nihil so he is immune to the Knight Killer's anti-cavalry effect and he could pass it down to other children that are affected by their weaknesses. Like Michalis, Arion has Nihil to nullify his bow weakness.


* ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' introduced a lead-lined suit to protect Supes against Kryptonite radiation. It came in real handy during its debut episode against the Parasite. Thereafter it suffered TheWorfEffect as every time it appeared it was torn or destroyed early into the battle (dipped in magma, ripped off by Krypto, freeze cracked, acid...) He had a much simpler (and weirder) solution to fighting Livewire and her electric powers along with Parasite. Supes pretty much just laminated himself in a thin layer of rubber, since it doesn't conduct electricity. It was a much better idea than wearing rubber gloves...

{{Weaksauce Weakness}}es are great to exploit, but suck to have. However, clever and enterprising creatures of the night, aliens, mutants, robots or what-have-you's can create a limited resistance or immunity by counteracting its effects. [[KillItWithFire Vulnerable to fire?]] Asbestos-fiber suit! [[HolyBurnsEvil Holy objects repel?]] Wear a [[ForScience Darwin-fish]] [[HollywoodAtheist necklace!]] Does [[KillItWithWater water]] [[ImMelting dissolve you?]] Coat yourself in water-proof paste! This doesn't even need to be limited to clothing, a [[WeakenedByTheLight sun-blocking satellite]] and a ProtectiveCharm are among many possibilities to counter their weaknesses.

* ''FanFic/TheWarcrafter'': At Christmas time, Adrian (shapeshifted into a reindeer) infiltrates Piggot's office and delivers enchanted Gnomish gadgets to the Protectorate and Wards that complement their parahuman powers.
** Vista, who had incredible SpaceMaster powers but [[SquishyWizard is in trouble if someone gets too close]], gets a ShrinkRay to incapacitate those that do.
** Clockblocker has range issues with his TimeStop power, so he gets a FreezeRay (charged by his power, no less) to mimic it at range.
** Aegis can take a lot of damage before going down but doesn't actually heal any faster, so he gets a "Recombobulator belt" that can restore him to full health a few times a day. He also gets healing bandages and bracers to protect him from fire and ice (two of the most common sources of damage at the cellular level).
** Browbeat, who can manipulate his biology to grow muscles, gets a [[MagicPants Magic Costume]] to fit.
** Gallant, under Adrian's assumption that his EmotionBomb powers are based on the Intellect attribute, gets a pair of [[MagicEnhancement Intellect-boosting]] goggles. They not only enhance his emotion-sensing sight, but also increase the power of his emotion blasts.
** Kid Win gets a box of parts to Tinker with and a note telling him to "Think Modular".
** Velocity's strength and ability to affect the world decreases, the faster he goes, so he gets strength- and damage-boosting [[PowerFist knuckle-dusters]] to boost his strength up to regular human levels at high speed... and [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom superhuman levels]] at normal speed.
** Battery's power relies on her staying still in order to charge up her speed and strength - so she gets an {{Invisibility}} and ForceField belt to protect her while she is stationary.
** Miss Militia gets reusable [[TrickBomb effect grenades]], as well as a mundane backup gun.
** Armsmaster, who is normally limited to close quarters with his halberd, gets a pair of RocketBoots (as well as the designs).
** Dauntless, whose [[TheMagicTouch enhancement touch]] is limited to his stamina, gets a stamina-boosting belt.
** Glory Girl also gets enhancements from Adrian - a headband to focus her EmotionBomb aura into a spotlight, and a belt to fold her personal force field and give her more hits. [[spoiler: Reverse-engineering the headband proves useful against the Simurgh.]]
* ''Fanfic/HellsisterTrilogy'': During ''The Apokolips Agenda'', Franchise/{{Superman}} and ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} have a run-in with Kryptonite Man, which prompts Kara to wear a lead suit for the rest of the Darkseid War just in case she runs into him again.
* In ''FanFic/BtvsSeasonsRewrite'', Willow enchants special talismans in the form of necklaces to allow Angel and Spike to be active during the day. She later does the same for Oz, in order to suppress his werewolf side.



* ''Film/TheTwinsEffect'', a Hong Kong [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot vampire action romance]] film, has a similar gag to the one in ''Film/VampiresSuck'', though in that film, the vampires evidently didn't ''know that sunblock existed'', and ended up having to make their own. It worked for a while, and then [[HilarityEnsues smoke ensues]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''FanFic/ToHellAndBackArrowverse'', Barry Allen designs Kryptonite-proof clothes for Kara which allow her to use Kryptonite weapons against her rogue kin.


* One group in ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'' used high-grade protective suits to survive in a lake of liquid silver (a place in the Umbra, usually used as "cure-or-kill" treatment for badly corrupted individuals, where they were sent as punishment). This was one of their many bright ideas.

* ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'' has the Fortitude Discipline that allows Kindred to resist even their weaknesses of fire and sunlight.
* In ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension'', Mages can use Periapts to take a certain amount of Paradox in their stead, and sufficiently-skilled practitioners of Prime can "pay off" Paradox with Quintessence.



** ''TabletopGame/D20Modern'' sourcebook Urban Arcana has an even better one, due to it's utter mundanity. So you're a drow elf and bright lights blind you because your eyes are so sensitive? Wear sunglasses or tinted visors!

Added DiffLines:

** He also had a [[{{Thememobile}} Supermobile]], an enclosed craft that shielded him from kryptonite and red-sun radiation.

Added DiffLines:

* In VideoGame/LunarKnights, the vampires are protected from the sun's light by their "Casket Armor". In order to defeat them, Lucian and Aaron have to defeat them in battle and bring them to space to purify them with the Sunflower, a sun-powered KillSat, as the vampire's [=ParaSOL=]/[[spoiler:Planet Eater Byron]] has rendered the sunlight on the surface too weak to purify a vampire.


** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemHeroes'' introduces Camus' Grani's Shield and Sheena's Svalinn Shield. These two skills respectively nullify the user's cavalry and armored weaknesses. In addition, the ''Heroes'' incarnation of Dragonskin serves as an upgraded personal variant of Iote's Shield for the female version of Grima that both nullifies flying weaknesses and grants +4 Def/Res on the enemy phase.

* Multiple games in the ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' series have the Iote's Shield item (sometimes a skill), which removes flying classes' weakness to arrows.
* ''VideoGame/LegacyOfKain: Soul Reaver'' has a partial example, a vampiric empire that releases large amounts of smoke to reduce light levels.
* ''VideoGame/{{Bloodrayne}} 2'' had something similar in the form of 'the shroud' a blood red cloud made up of [[spoiler: ground up people]] that blocks out sunlight, allowing vampires to walk around in the day and seriously warping the natural world.
* Remilia Scarlet of ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' is a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]], and thus is vulnerable to sunlight. Her solution to this problem is to cover [[FantasyKitchenSink Gensokyo]] in a blood-red mist to block sunlight, triggering the events of the sixth game, ''Embodiment of Scarlet Devil''. After being beaten by the heroines, she decided to simply use a [[ParasolOfPrettiness parasol]] instead. Gets a CallBack in the fighting games: Remilia can't participate in the daytime stages unless she's equipped with a parasol.
* Dracula's Castle in ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' has the power to block out the sun in a large area around it, creating a pocket of eternal night. Pretty handy for a vampire like Dracula. In pre-''Lords of Shadow'' continuity, Dracula gained this power by claiming the Ebony Stone, one of two stones created by alchemy during experiments to create the PhilosophersStone.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'', walking on ink of a color other than their own damages Inklings and slows them to a crawl. To counteract this some shoes come equipped with the Ink Resistance ability, which lowers the damage Inklings receive while standing in enemy ink, and decreases the movement penalty while moving through it.
* Rubicante, leader of the Four Fiends in ''Videogame/FinalFantasyIV'', has a cloak that lets him ''absorb'' the spells that would normally harm him, exploiting it in his boss battles. In ''Videogame/FinalFantasyIVTheAfterYears'', if certain requirements are met, he will give his cloak to his WorthyOpponent, Edge.
* Zombies and skeletons in ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' are [[WeakenedByTheLight allergic to sunlight]] but if they're spawned wearing a helmet, they'll be immune to it.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Franchise/FireEmblem'', many types of units are weak to certain types of weaponry (ex. fliers are weak to bows, cavalry are weak to ridersbanes, and so on). However, there are rare items and skills capable of nullifying these weaknesses.
** The first and most famous one of these is Iote's Shield, primarily associated with King Michalis of Macedon. It's an item in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemMysteryOfTheEmblem'', ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemShadowDragonAndTheBladeOfLight Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon]]'', and ''[[VideoGameRemake Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem]]'' and a skill in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', ''VideoGame/FireEmblemHeroes'', and ''VideoGame/FireEmblemWarriors''. In ''Mystery'' and ''Warriors'', it negates all of the bearer's weaknesses, while in the other games it only works for fliers.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBindingBlade'' and ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBlazingBlade'' have the Delphi Shield, an accessory which protects fliers from bows and wind magic. You can steal it from Narcian in ''The Binding Blade'' [[spoiler:and get another one when you recruit him in Trial Map mode]], while you can find it in a chest during "Battle Before Dawn" in ''The Blazing Blade''.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'' has the Fili Shield, an accessory which also protects fliers from bows and wind magic. You can pry it off of Valter's corpse [[spoiler:and get a second one when you recruit him during the Creature Campaign]].
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemPathOfRadiance'' has the Full Guard, an accessory which protects any unit who equips it from bonus damage. It's also DummiedOut as a skill in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemRadiantDawn''.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' has the Conquest skill, which negates the wielder's armored and beast weaknesses. It is primarily associated with Walhart, and also wielded by [=SpotPass=] Zephiel and DLC Ephraim. [[spoiler:Walhart also retains the skill when you recruit him in Paralogue 19, and he can pass it down to Morgan if he fathers him.]]
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' has the Winged Shield skill, which negates the wielder's flier weaknesses and allows them to benefit from terrain bonuses. It is primarily associated with Hinoka as an enemy on the ''Conquest'' route, who has the skill during both of her boss fights; it is also wielded by two generic Pegasus Knights in Chapter 11 on Lunatic. There's also the DummiedOut Armor Shield and Beast Shield skills, which respectively nullify the bearer's armored and beast weaknesses.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemHeroes'' introduces Camus' Grani's Shield and Sheena's Svalinn Shield. These two skills respectively nullify the user's cavalry and armored weaknesses.
