Actually, that's completely wrong. Infinity's nonaugmented personnel number about 17,151, while Infinity's Spartan contingent is "only" about 500 at most according to Word Of God.
* As of ''{{VideoGame/Halo 4}}'', most of the crew on ''Infinity'' are [[SuperSoldier Spartan IVs]], even the ones that aren't actively taking part in combat, like MissionControl. The process for becoming one is so streamlined that nearly any marine could volunteer for it.

* The denizens of Rapture in ''Franchise/BioShock'' are all addicted to ADAM. Spread across the city are vending machines that turn ADAM into mutations that let you shoot fire from your hands, turn invisible, and control minds. Even the relatively "normal" users of it are much stronger, faster or smarter than an average human.

Engineered Heroics is a better fit than FFO
* ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'': Played with by the villain's objective. "And when I'm old and had my fun, I'll sell my inventions, and EVERYONE can be super. And when everyone is super...heheheh...NO ONE WILL BE." Naturally it's not this goal that makes him a villain, but everything he considers [[ForTheEvulz "my fun"]] before he gets around to it, like [[FalseFlagOperation creating disasters for him to fix]]. Although, even there, this ultimate goal is still portrayed as something dark and sinister. (No one will be special any more! It will be {{dystopia}}!) Part of the point is that there would still be "Supers" (or at least some people more super than others) except now the Supers will be those who can pay the most instead of those naturally gifted.

* In ''EarthX'', everyone's a mutant. That's one way to get rid of that FantasticRacism. That is, until you get a load of the Monster Generation or even the new ''ComicBook/XMen'', whose mutations are so freakish they're pariahs even in a world full of their own kind.

* ''WindABreathOfHeart'' - In spite of seeming to be like a normal town, (almost) everyone in the town the story takes place has some kind of special power, often [[MundaneUtility mundane ones]], and asking what everyone else's powers are is as common as asking what someone's name is. The reason this is so common becomes a major plot point...

There are also achievements like "catch a fish in both capital cities," so attacking the ruler isn't the ONLY reason. Just the main one.
* Happens in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' on all but the youngest and emptiest realms. At any given time in the capital cities, level-capped players -- many of them armed with epic gear -- far outnumber both [=NPCs=] and leveling characters combined. When enemy players invade the cities, [[PoliceAreUseless the city guards can't put up much resistance]], but anyone can be a BadassBystander. Of course, the only reason enemy players would invade a city in the first place would be to kill its ruler, who happens to be a living (or unliving, in Sylvanas Windrunner's case) example of AsskickingEqualsAuthority.

* In the setting of ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', 80% of humanity has some kind of superpower, which are called "[[[[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual Quirks]]". Despite this, not everyone is a superhero; it's implied that most people have a [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway minor power]] and/or use their power for [[MundaneUtility mundane tasks]]. The main character, who wants to actually be a superhero, is one of the 20% without a Quirk. [[EmpoweredBadassNormal This changes shortly after the series begins.]]
