* ''ComicBook/PS238'' focuses on is about a school filled with super-powered children (and faculty), and SuperheroSchool where the one main character, [[OnlySaneMan Tyler]], is a ten-year-old MuggleBornOfMages. Early on the stories involved him trying to get by without being accidentally killed, resulting in him becoming a BadassNormal (to his own surprise). Eventually, lots of superhero teams wind up moving to town, though {{Muggle}}s still live there, the technically [=PS238=] itself is hidden as part of a normal student (Tyler).public school.

*''Franchise/MassEffect'': Pay close attention, and you'll realize that the 6 classes are simply the 6 variants of alliance training. Although your standard alliance Soldier won't be as tough as Shepard is, they would still have Adrenaline Rush, Concussive Shot, and all the ammo mods. Same goes for the power of the other classes. Infliltrators with the crazy time dilation aim. Engineers with assault turrets. And what about biotic classes? What about [[GameBreaker Vanguards?]]

* Arguably, depending on whether you think HumansAreSpecial, humans are all super. We are ImplacableMan {{Gadgeteer Genius}}es, whose [[GameBreaker incredible brainpower]] makes us AwesomeByAnalysis. Not to mention, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking we've got those]] [[Series/DoctorWho little edible ball bearings]].

* ''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 [[EngineeredHeroics 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.

* The wizard world in Literature/HarryPotter is one in which [[WorldOfBadass everyone has badass magical powers]] (with the exception of [[MuggleBornOfMages squibs]]). And all the Muggles…which is most of the world’s population. Granted, it could still apply since the Wizarding World is the primary setting for most of the series, but it’s an important plot element from time to time that the majority of the planet has no idea magic even exists.

* In ''TrintonChronicles'' it seems like everybody has some sort of supernatural power, ability, or trait. Some are more powerful than others, but it's so commonplace that if you lack powers, you're more of a freak than if you happen to be born with powers, also magic is a normality and anyone can learn it, like any kind of science, but it takes special people with the drive to do so.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', while not ''everyone'' has elemental bending powers, meeting someone who does is about as unusual as meeting someone with brunette hair. So while the show heavily features cool fight scenes involving elemental kung fu, we're also often treated to displays of their [[MundaneUtility Mundane Utilities]], such as building houses, heating and cooling drinks, powering steam-punk machines, and playing games. Of particular note, the Air Nomads deserve special mention for living up to "Everyone" part of the trope name; because of their spirituality, their entire population is born with the ability to airbend.

* The Mink tribe in ''Manga/OnePiece''. Every single member of the tribe, from the infants to the elderly, are naturally powerful as hell. They have great speed, strength and combat abilities, as well the power to [[ShockAndAwe channel and use eletricity through their fur]]. They're a MartialPacifist race, however; they're perfectly able to kick ass, but they'd rather find peaceful solutions to problems instead.

* In the ''Literature/CodexAlera'' series, ''all'' Alerans (the human civilization) possess a degree of ElementalPowers ([[BadassNormal the protagonist]] being [[UnSorcerer a notable exception]]), ranging from peasants who have limited control over one element to [[PersonOfMassDestruction godlike]] [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking high nobility]]. On the nonhuman side of things, the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Marat]] all have the ability to [[BondCreatures telepathically bond with an animal]] (including large, vicious predators), and while only a few of the [[WolfMan Canim]] actually have magic, any one of them is ''still'' a seven-to-eight foot tall centuries-old anthropomorphic canine, and therefore ''plenty'' {{Badass}} enough to hold their own against all the superpowered people running around.

* Thanks to a MassSuperEmpoweringEvent, humans in the ''Fanfic/OversaturatedWorld'' all have access to a slightly altered version of Equestrian magic. For the most part this just means watered down versions of the equestrian pony tribes' magics, but there are a couple PhysicalGods, hints that other magics from Equestria made their way over, [[spoiler:and ''human'' magic is in the mix...]]
