    Default Ack! My kryptonite.

    So I'm running this superhero campaign where the way superheroes are done is kind of stupid (savage world) so I made a deal stating that instead of doing things the dumb way (building skills for powers which means wasting levels) I decided that instead they'd each have a kryptonite. Something that would quickly take them down.
    The heroes I have to deal with is;


    1. Titan a man made of metal who's a master of magnetism.
    I gave him a electricity as a weakness not that it disables him but cranks up his powers causing tons of metal to come flying his way.


    2. Umbra a man with a bit of demon in him. He has the power to suck evil out of people and make himself more powerful.
    Weakness wise I threw holy stuff at him for weakness.


    3.Archangel. A friggin' archangel who draws his power from a holy sword that has been passed down from one archangel to the next.
    Weakness is no sword no power.


    4. Storyteller. She has the power to change how things happened. Nothing to major just turn killing blows into glancing blows and what not. She's part fey so cold iron is her weakness.

    5. iNC a man able to bring his tattoos to life. Sadly if his tattoos get nailed by lots of water they sort of disintegrate.

    6. Kitsune. This guy wanted to be a kitsune so boom he's a kitsune.
    I decided that he'd get all the weaknesses as well since it would be lame to go halfway with this.
    Weakness wise though what hurts kitsune they're a part of mythology that eludes me.

    7. Ghost (not his name but he takes forever with that stuff.) He's steadily gaining ghost powers but for now he just talks to ghosts.
    I figured he'd have the drawbacks of the ghosts since they're ghosts. They can't pass over running water or salt circles.

    Finally the big issue.8. Stretch. He's a fine mixture of shapeshifters he's mystique, beast boy, and Jake the dog. How do you hurt something like that.

    I'm calling out to all my nerd friends for help in coming up with good weaknesses for these folks.
    This is horrifying beyond anything Lovecraft ever wrote or Giger ever drew.

    I suppose I mean I'm more focused on just talking about it. I'm not worried about the statistics so much as just talking about superheroes in general.

    Regardless of the forum this ultimately ends up in, I'd say scissors.

    Like - hey! Stretch! Naah, Imma cut you with scissors once you stretch too far!

    You've seen stretch rubber getting cold? It goes hard and fragile. Give him a weakness against cold.

    Give stretch two weaknesses. Heat makes him too wobbly to properly control himself, and cold makes him fragile.

    What kind of Kitsune? From a specific anime/manga, or from actual mythology?

    Heck. Even mythological Kits have different traits ranging from spirit possessions to shapeshifting. Apparently they all generally hate/fear dogs. Shapeshifting Kitsune accidentally revert back to fox form when sufficiently startled.

    And, since they're Japanese, you could always saddle the character with some code of honor that might potentially dictate some aspects of his gameplay.

    Doomboy said 'weakness'. Not 'weekend'. Whatever the kit does in its downtime is its own business.
