Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/TheUnfantasticAdventuresOfBizarroNo1'' has the Blue-Kryptonite Men, who are made from a Kryptonite variety which is specifically deadly to SelfDemonstrating/{{Bizarro}}and his race.


* ''Fanfic/RWBYEpicOfRemnant'': Angra Mainyu can easily defeat Grimm because they are an embodiment of negativity, so their very presence supercharges his powers.

* ''Fanfic/RWBYEpicOfRemnant'': Angra Mainyu can easily defeat Grimm because they are an embodiment of negativity, so their very presence supercharges his powers. However, since he's also an embodiment of negativity, the Grimm are attracted to him like moths to a flame, which can get annoying.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/SpiderManFarFromHome'' has Spider-Man become this to [[spoiler:Mysterio. His illusions and MindRape abilities work just fine on ''normal'' senses, but after Spidey mastered his SpiderSense, they don't even hinder him. When Mysterio tries to [[CastingAShadow use darkness to blind him against gunfire]], Spidey has no issue dodging all of it before closing in on him. Effectively, Spidey can NoSell any of Mysterio's illusions thrown at him by virtue of the LogicalWeakness that his illusions can't effect other non-normal senses.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive:'' [[spoiler: Susan, Diane, and other descendants of Pandora (who have a natural affinity for spells related to magic weapons) are this to aberrations (who are very vulnerable to magic weapons but difficult to harm with anything else). This is speculated to be why the French immortals felt justified in recruiting Susan as a ChildSoldier.]]


* ''Fanfic/TheVastoOfWhite'': Shirou can fight Baraggan because his weapons are StrongerWithAge. Baraggan trying to use his RapidAging powers on them just makes them more powerful instead of fall apart. Shirou still has to be careful because ''his'' body is not immune to RapidAging.

** A few words of praise from an Atoll can permanently add dots to a Leviathan's KarmaMeterů while words of ''criticism'' can permanently ''remove'' dots. It's not something an Atoll consciously triggers either, if they start yelling at the Leviathan for kidnapping them, the Leviathan's loosing Tranquility.

** Zygarde's 50% form's default ability Aura Break reverses the effects of Xerneas's Fairy Aura and Yveltal's Dark Aura so that instead of them respectively boosting the power of Fairy and Dark-type attacks, they weaken them. Ironically, as a Dragon-type, Zygarde is still weak to Xerneas' Fairy-type attacks, and as a Ground-type, its strongest attacks can't hit Yveltal due to the latter being a Flying-type unless it uses Thousand Arrows (introduced in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon Sun and Moon]]'').

** Terroranchula, which creates force field-like webs that neutralize Ball Weevil's plasma attacks and trap him, and can squeeze into narrow spaces like Ball Weevil can.
** Tyrannopede, which is way stronger than Vaxasaurians like Humungousaur, too heavy for Humungousaur to lift for very long, and spins webs that Humungousaur can't break.
** Vicetopus, which has tentacles strong enough to break a Cerebrocrustacean's shell.


* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'': Ben Tennyson is the bearer of the Omnitrix, a device that grants him the ability to turn into various aliens (originally ten) with each one possessing their own powers. [[EgomaniacHunter Khyber]] has a pet wearing the Nemetrix, a similar device given to him by ArcVillain Malware that allows his pet to turn into the perfect ''predators'' to any alien species, making it basically designed to fight Omnitrix-wearers. It later turns out that the Nemetrix only has ten predatory aliens, and aliens like Upchuck or Upgrade don't have predators.
** Earlier, in ''WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien'', Will Harangue pools his resources into building a robot that can seemingly combat all of Ben's aliens (after tricking Ben into getting his aliens and fighting style scanned). Ben was able to beat the machine using an alien that didn't get scanned (Nanomech) and by using a fighting style that he hadn't demonstrated earlier ([[IKnowMortalKombat based on a video game]]).

Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/LeviathanTheTempest:'' Despite being full-up Eldritch Abominations with the power to devour nation, enslave mortals to their will, and reshape space and time to their preference, Leviathans are all but helpless against the otherwise human Atolls.
** Just being in the presence of an Atoll will leave a Leviathan blissed out like the finest heroin for a human (complete with withdrawal symptoms as soon as they leave).
** A few words of praise from an Atoll can permanently add dots to a Leviathan's KarmaMeterů while words of ''criticism'' can permanently ''remove'' dots. It's not something an Atoll consciously triggers either, if they start yelling at the Leviathan for kidnapping them, the Leviathan's loosing Tranquility.
** If a Leviathan or its Beloved deliberately harm an Atoll, the Leviathan has to roll for Erosion at a massive penalty. If they actually ''kill'' the Atoll, the Leviathan has to roll for ''every'' dot of Tranquility... with only about a 30% chance of keeping each dot. While there's an ObviousRulePatch keeping a PlayerCharacter Leviathan from going from 4+ Tranquility to 0 due to this effect, a Leviathan could still easily go from near-max Tranquility to 1 dot left. This is the ''only'' thing in the game that can cause a Leviathan to lose multiple Tranquility dots at once.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Series/TheAdventuresOfSuperboy'' had its own version of Metallo, whose super-strong arms were powered by a chunk of kryptonite. He's pretty much helpless when running on battery power.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/{{Juxtapose}}'' Izuku's Quirk "Minor Banishment" allows him to erase up to ten grams of matter at a time. Since air only weighs roughly one gram per liter, this makes him a perfect counter against [[BlowYouAway Tsuburaba]] whose barriers use the air in his lungs.
