Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/HarrisonBergeron'': Harrison's father is unwilling to cheat on his handicap bag (meant to hobble anyone stronger than average) because if he feels free cheating, everyone else might as well and then we're back in the Dark Ages with everyone competing.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheInfected'' has mutants, the titular Infected, and Muggles who, in the bigot code at least, are 'Clean'. Many Infected characters bitterly regret their status and the resulting discrimination, everyone who can pass as normal, does, and it is generally accepted to be better to be Clean than not, though there are hints this may change by the series end.

* ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles'': Alicia forms ''none'' of her own ideas about her [[spoiler:newly awakened Valkyria powers]] or how to apply them. Instead, she becomes convinced that she's lost her humanity; not because anyone thinks she has, or is even necessarily afraid that she will, she just assumes that the one other person who has the same ability is evil and so she'll become evil too. This is very obviously not the case, but the [[IdiotPlot assumption she makes drives the last act of the romance plot.]]
