* Bruce Wayne, aka Franchise//{{Batman}}, as well. Unlike Supes, he ''lives'' like it. His family is basically responsible for building Gotham City. In fact, Bob Kane chose the name "Wayne" after an American Revolutionary soldier, Anthony Wayne (some writers suggest Bruce is an actual descendent), making him the closest to nobility you can get in the States.

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has Harry as a prime example, much to his discomfort. Aside from the Potter bloodline, there's also the fact that his dad was a mortally incarnated Thor, meaning that he doesn't just have RoyalBlood, but DivineParentage, descending from the House of Odin. There's even a faint suspicion that there's some fragmentary relationship to the House of El. While he likes the family, Harry mostly finds the rest of it excruciatingly embarrassing.


Added DiffLines:

* Even today, the British nobility[=/=]gentry is heavily involved in the military, particularly the Royal Navy, leading to the old joke about Army vs Navy rugby matches: "Why are the Army jerseys red? So the blood doesn't show. Why are the Navy jerseys blue? Same reason."

* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'': Despite the reamarkable simplicity of ork social structures ([[AsskickingEqualsAuthority the stronger you are]], [[LargeAndInCharge the bigger you get]], the more orks you lead), they have nobility of a sort: nobs, the biggest, baddest orks short of the warboss himself (the name is a loanword from nobility, but they pronounce it as "knob").
