Otacon: If you can shoot a Stinger missile into the cockpit, you'll destroy the computer control system.
Snake: You intentionally designed it with a weak point?
Otacon: It's not a weak point. I like to think of it as a character flaw. People just aren't complete without some type of character flaw, don't you think?

"What took a particularly annoying number of attempts was a bit towards the end where my sole instruction was to "take out the tank." But while the tank's weak spot was completely obvious — cause it was the bit behind intermittently closing armor plating — it didn't actually become a weak spot until I'd shot all the tank's wheels off. Oh yeah, obviously! Should've guessed that the wheels are where the enemy keeps all their magic monkey paws and four leaf clovers."

"Limitless power is good right until limitless power source is shot and broken. Even if tougher, still presents large glowing "shoot me" target on chest that is at center mass. Idiot with Mosin and no training could hit that."

Seventh Doctor, Doctor Who, Silence in the Library

Hit the giant enemy crab in its weak spot for massive damage, huh? Timeless.

If it has one. Usually a sphere of some kind. Mostly stones with runes on them, squiggly little things like the one on the back of your hand. Some of the time. I think. Saw a few that had just a smiley face and a name on them. One of them just had a rude word on it! But anyway, find the core, partner! You might need to do some searching, though, since sometimes there are more than one core, sometimes there aren't even any! Most fun of all, some of them blow up! But one thing's for sure; the best thing is to go for the core, partner!

General Jan Dodonna, Star Wars: A New Hope
