Most depictions of Kryptonite I've seen, while it doesn't do anything besides mess up Kryptonians unless you do something weird with the stuff, have a lot more impact on Superman than just RPG-ish power-nullification. Something like severe to terrible pain.

...Which is also commonly true of applying iron to fae in modern works.

But meteoric iron and other similar antimagic metals usually don't torment magicians and magical creatures. Aside from possibly enabling someone to subject them to mundane torments that they would normally resist or avoid.
