* Almost every ''NewWorldOfDarkness'' TabletopGames has exactly five clans/auspices/paths/etc. of the species under discussion; the sole exception is ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'', with six seemings (and only four Courts (the Seasonal Courts), or two courts (the Sun and Moon Courts), or a different four courts (the Directional Courts)). In the core-book ''TabletopGame/PrometheanTheCreated'' was like this too, but supplements added the Zeka (radioactive Prometheans) and the Unfleshed (artificial, instead of made from human corpses), as well as more Refinements than the 5 in the core. There are usually five political factions, as well, with the "black hat" (evil) group usually being an evil faction as opposed to a race.

Many fantastic settings attempting a universe will end up using "races" of people. The word race here typically referring to species of humanoids and not "races" of humans (however, in some cases the groups can interbreed muddling things somewhat).

Sometimes this is used to explore aspects of the world from a different perspective, other times it's just an easy way to soapbox or [[PlanetOfHats describe different points of view]] and aspects of normal people.

* '''Stout''' ([[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame Dwarf]]): Strong and tough, usually associated with hard physical work and masculinity. The archetypal Stout in fantasy is the dwarf. While in ScienceFiction settings, the role may be given to one of the more [[ProudWarriorRace warlike]] alien races, robots or cyborgs or possibly even [[HumanSubspecies humans]] genetically or cybernetically enhanced for heavy labour or [[HeavyWorlder life on high-gravity planets]]. Stouts can be quick to anger and may share an uneasy peace with other peoples of the setting.
* '''Fairy''' ([[OurElvesAreBetter Elf]][=/=][[OurFairiesAreDifferent Fairy]][=/=][[OurAngelsAreDifferent Angel]]): The most magical or technological race, relatively speaking, and often depicted as so removed from the other races' as to border on the alien or out of touch. This can make them despised by some of the other races [[ElvesVsDwarves especially the Stouts]]. It can include angelic types, or on rare occasions even [[PhysicalGod gods]]. The typical Fairy is an elf, correspondingly more [[{{Elfeminate}} "feminine"]] in contrast to the "masculine" Stouts (longer hair, greater delicacy, and likely to depend on ranged weaponry and their wit to get them out of danger) and more ascetic or emotionally restrained to counter the gruff passion of the Stouts. Some works go as far as to turn them into a OneGenderRace of females. Recently, having this be a CuteMonsterGirl is more and more common. In SpeculativeFiction, substitute humans with [[PsychicPowers psionic abilities]], {{Artificial Intelligence}}s when they aren't [[AIIsACrapshoot crapshoots]], or [[ProudScholarRaceGuy advanced]] but not quite {{Sufficiently Advanced Alien}}s. See also SpaceElves.
* '''Mundane''' ([[HumansAreAverage Human]]): [[AudienceSurrogate What the modern reader supposedly most identifies with.]] The least magical race, usually enjoys simple pleasures instead of adventuring, a la Tolkien's {{Hobbits}}. Usually the JackOfAllTrades of the races. This is usually a role assigned to humans, unless you have…
* '''High Men''' ([[OurElvesAreBetter High Elf]][=/=][[HumansAreSpecial Human]][=/=][[OurGodsAreDifferent God]]): Usually a historical or [[WitchSpecies fantastic interpretation]] of what humans are or want to be. A setting without elves as Fairy or High Men simply will not have elves. If the {{Precursors}} still exist in a SpeculativeFiction setting, they might fill this role if TheFederation isn't heavily idealized.

* ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' may be the TropeMaker here, with Elves (High Men), Dwarves (Stout), Ents (Fairy), Men (Mundane/High), and Hobbits (Cute/Mundane). Intriguingly, one of the most powerful of the Middle Earth immortals, Tom Bombadill, fits just as neatly as the Hobbits into the Cute category. However, the situation gets a bit murkier once you look deeper into the mythology, with several alternative arrangements and even subsets of the races themselves.

* Literature/TheDeathGateCycle has Humans as mundanes and Dwarves as stout while the Elves are mostly just a more civilised form of mundanes. The Patryns and Sartan are both fairies, being in some way descended from humans but possessing much more magical aptitude to the point of being considered demigods; they both look down on the other three races equally.

Many fantastic settings attempting a universe will end up using "races" of people. This is less in the spirit of being different species (indeed, in many cases the groups can interbreed) and more an easy way to soapbox or [[PlanetOfHats describe different points of view]] and aspects of normal people; or, in a game world, simply to give the player a wider range of choices. At least one has a good chance of being from a OneGenderRace. These usually include:

* '''Stout''' ([[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame Dwarf]]): Strong, usually associated with hard physical work and masculinity. The archetypal Stout in fantasy is the dwarf.

Stouts can be warlike and may be the ProudWarriorRace, of the setting.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheDarkProfitSaga'' originally started with ''four'' races of Man: Elves (Fairy), Dwarves (Stout), Gnomes (Cute), and Sten (High Men). The Sten were gray-skinned, as tall as Elves, and as broad as Dwarves. They were master of low magic, the kind no one else is able to wield. A fifth race appeared shortly after: humans (Mundane). As it turns out, any intermixing between the races of Man results in a human, the so-called "default" race. Currently, the count is down to four again, with the Sten being wiped out by the other races of Man for siding with the GodOfEvil Mannon in the ancient War of Betrayal. Humans, being prolific breeders, have grown to outnumber all other races of Man combined.

* ''Videogame/DragonBallXenoverse'' has five playable races which roughly correspond to this.
** Mundane: Earthlings -- They have [[JackOfAllStats balanced stats all around]] and their [[KiAttacks Ki]] recharges automatically, granting an attack bonus when maxed out. Additionally, [[GuysSmashGirlsShoot male Earthlings are better at physical attacks while females are better at Ki attacks]].
** Fairy: Freeza's Race -- They have low attack but high speed, receiving a speed bonus when their HP dips below 50%. They also sacrifice the ability to throw multiple Ki blasts in favor of a single shot which causes stun on hit.
** Stout: Namekian -- [[StoneWall Their attack is low, but they have high health and stamina recharges faster than other races]]. Their natural regenerative abilities are represented as a bonus to healing items and GradualRegeneration when low on HP.
** High Men: Saiyan -- [[GlassCannon They have high attack power, but low health]]. They get an attack bonus when low on health, and [[CameBackStrong bonuses to all stats when revived]]. Males have stronger basic melee and {{Status Buff}}s last longer, but weaker Supers; females have better Ki and stamina recovery and trigger Z Assists more often, but have lower health. And of course, they have access to [[GoldenSuperMode Super Saiyan (up to 2)]], while all the other races have to make due with the Kaioken.
** Cute: Majin -- [[SuperToughness They have high defense]], but stamina recovers more slowly, and max stamina grants a defense bonus. Males have more health and less speed while females have the opposite.

Males have more health and less speed while females have the opposite. In ''[=XV2=]'' male Majins take less damage when they have more stamina (but take ''more'' when they're low on it) and females recover stamina more quickly when their stamina breaks. They also gain Purification, which lets them turn into a Kid Buu-like form with a damage buff.

Humans are of course Mundanes, the Sithi occupy both the Fairies and High Men role, Trolls are Cutes, Niskies are both Fairies and Cutes, and Dwarrows (the underground cousins of the Niskies) are both Stouts and Cutes.
