Added DiffLines:

* ''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").

** Pointedly averted with ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine's'' General Martok. He was actually born a commoner and clawed his way UpThroughTheRanks by [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority methods]] [[KlingonPromotion dear]] [[{{Badass}} to the]] [[ProudWarriorRace Klingon heart]] (and this was despite being blacklisted by Kor for his low birth). Presumably his noble rank is by marriage (or merit) rather then birth.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/BloodAndHonor'': Purebloods can trace their descent from the high priests of the ancient Sith race, and Sanguis is no exception. Her storied heritage is brought up occasionally and she has a family estate, complete with servants, on the Imperial homeworld of Dromund Kaas. Several other Sith encountered over the course of the story mention being familiar with her house.
