* In ''StarCraft'' the frequency and potency of human psychics is supposed to be greater in the future (than the current 0) and an impending commonality of psychic abilities in humans is why the Zerg want to assimilate them before taking on the Protoss, [[spoiler:or to somehow free themselves from the Dark Voice.]]

** In ''[[VideoGame/StarcraftIILegacyOfTheVoid Legacy of the Void]]'' it turns out that [[spoiler: humanity has the potential to become the "Purity of Form" half of the next generation of Xel'naga without Amon's interference, like the Protoss had. And Kerrigan, a Zerg (the race with Purity of Essence)-infested human, becomes the newest Xel'naga.

* In TabletopGame/EclipsePhase, some humans are infected with the benign [=Watts-MacLeod=] nanovirius strain, which seems to do nothing but give them psychic powers, divided into two main categories: Psi-Chi is available to all psychics and allows the individual to alter their own mind, while Psi-Gamma is only for strong psychics and lets them alter ''other'' people's minds. However, as this nanovirus was created by the [=TITANs=] [[spoiler: acting under orders from the ETI]] and every other known strain of nanovirus causes horrible death and/or mutation into an exsurgant threat, the gamemaster is encouraged to explore the possibility that this strain is a more subtle form of infiltration by the [=TITANs=] waiting to serve its true purpose or to arrange encounters with individuals who believe this to be the case. [[spoiler: Whether these people are right or not is never answered, but it is revealed that a third level of power is available to exsurgents, Psi-Epsilon, which allows them to [[RealityWarper alter reality]].]]

* In the ''Literature/ChakonaSpace'' verse psionics are usually possessed by genetically engineered human-animal hybrids, mostly Chakats and Skunktaurs, but it's the same principle. Chakats are almost universally empaths, while Skunktaurs are divided into three "Houses" with different powers, telepathy, telekinesis, or astral projection. Chakats whose sires or grandsires (species comes from the mother) were Skunktaurs tend to inherit their powers.

* EsOtherwise has a 'species' of human suddenly flare up with incredible psychic power, but normal humans ostracize them.
* Literature/FromTheNewWorld is a coming of age story taking place 1000 years after psychic users emerged in the twenty-first century, and focuses heavily on how the society of the protagonists tries to preserve the human race through its genetic and social engineering.
