* The [[WolfMan Canim]] from JimButcher's ''Literature/CodexAlera'' novels. There are three known castes: The makers (farmers, blacksmiths, etc.), ritualists (sorcerers), and warriors (ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin). The warriors are the ruling caste, something which the rituatlists resent, but both warriors and ritualists claim that their class is actually subservient to the workers; they fight (and work magic) for the benefit of the populace.

* ''Franchise/DanganRonpa'': The [[{{SuperDanganronpa2}} second game]], [[{{DanganronpaZero}} prequel novel]] and [[{{DanganRonpa3}} sequel anime]] reveal that Hope's Peak Academy is divided into two levels. In the East quarter are the SHSL Talents/Ultimates, who were hand-picked by the school so their special skills can be studied and amplified by getting the best schooling possible. In the West quarter is the Reserve department, made of {{Ordinary High School Student}}s who have to pay a costly tuition fee for the privilege of attending. Their campus functions as a completely ordinary high school, without any access to the perks the Ultimates get to enjoy and they are often viewed as nothing more than second-class students. The two groups are largely segregated from each other, with little interaction between levels.

* ''Series/{{Inhumans}}'': Attilan runs on a superpower-based system, with those who receive impressive powers being rewarded and those with weak or nonexistent powers being essentially slaves. [[BigBad Maximus]] exists in an odd place in the system; he has no powers himself, but is protected by his status as the king's brother.

* The city of Tharios in ''[[Literature/TheCircleOfMagic Shatterglass]]'' has one, based on the Hindu caste system. The lowest level, the Untouchable equivalent, is the Prathmun, composed of people who handle the dead (Tharosian culture considers death to be unclean). The second-to-lowest caste is the Yaskedasi, who are entertainers. The caste system becomes a serious problem when a serial killer starts targeting Yaskedasi, and since they were low-caste no one really cared enough to investigate (people were more concerned that their bodies were being dumped in public places).

* In ''[[Literature/TheCircleOpens Shatterglass]]'' Tharios has one, based on the Indian caste system. The very bottom rung is occupied by the Prathmuni, who handle the dead (all death in Tharios is considered unclean) and are the 'untouchable' equivalent caste, to the point where non-Prathmuni aren't supposed to acknowledge that they exist. Entertainers, called Yaskedasi, occupy the next-lowest caste. The caste system becomes a problem when they need to catch a murderer who goes after female Yaskedasi, as the lowest classes aren't considered important enough for the police to investigate their deaths.

** Averted for Xivilai, a [[GiantMook massive]] and [[EliteMooks powerful]] form of lesser Daedra that is otherwise culturally very similar to the Dremora. Xivilai have no castes stemming from their hatred of subordination and tendency for betrayal.
** Xivkyn, however, are a hybrid of Xivilai and Dremora (who refer to themselves as the "Kyn" in the Daedric language) created by the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] [[TheCorrupter Molag]] [[GodOfEvil Bal]] to serve as his LegionsOfHell during the [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline Planemeld]]. Like the Dremora, Xivkyn play it straight by having a caste system.

** Mazken (aka Dark Seducers) are also a race of intelligent lesser Daedra in service to Sheogorath. They have a caste system with an seven-tier hierarchy, ascending from lowest to highest in rank as follows: Kiskengo, Kiskella, Kiskedrig, Grakendo, Grakella, Grakedrig, Autkendo. Like the Aureals, an individual's strength and discipline determines their place in this system.

** The Dremora, a race of intelligent [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]], have a complex multi-level caste system, divided into three "soldier" classes (Churls, Caitiffs, and Kynvals), two "officer" classes (Kynreeves and Kynmarchers), and two "noble" classes (Markynaz and Valkynaz). ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' includes one Dremora Feydnaz, but where this caste fits in is unclear (though he functions as a stronger Valkynaz.)

** The Dremora, a race of intelligent [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]], have a complex multi-level caste system, system. They're divided into three "soldier" classes (Churls, Caitiffs, and Kynvals), two "officer" classes (Kynreeves and Kynmarchers), and two "noble" classes (Markynaz and Valkynaz). The former three represent the military ranks of lesser soldiers, with Churls being the untrained disorganized rabble that form the bulk of a clan's fighting force, Caitiffs representing shock troops, and Kynvals being soldiers that distinguished themselves in combat and displaying the potential to be future leaders of their clans, as well as being the equivalent of knights. The other four are more important, politically-oriented roles, as they respectively represent clan officers, grand dukes, lords, and princes. There are also many other ranks, such as Kyngald and Narkynaz, whose positions in the overall hierarchy is largely unknown. ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' includes one Dremora Feydnaz, but where this caste fits in is unclear (though he functions as a stronger Valkynaz.)Valkynaz).
