* In ''ComicBook/{{PS238}},'' Tyler Marlocke is the son of two of the world's strongest superheroes, but doesn't have any sort of powers himself. Of course, he's obviously going to develop them ''any day now,'' so his parents still enroll him in the titular SuperheroSchool, advising the instructors to put him in lots of difficult and/or dangerous situations to help bring his abilities to the surface. Fortunately, the staff are a bit more GenreSavvy, and arrange for him to have private lessons with [[TheCowl the Revenant]], a Franchise/{{Batman}} {{expy}}, in the hopes of him becoming a BadassNormal.

* In ''VideoGame/GoldenSun: The Lost Age'', being a non-Adept in a family full of Mars Adepts doesn't seem to bother Briggs a bit. He ''is'' a BadassNormal, but he's also not above just getting his Adept relatives to do things for him. In ''Dark Dawn'', he's also shown to have a better awareness of Psynergy than most non-Adepts, and is one of the few who [[WeirdnessCensor recognizes it in action]], giving him a certain degree of GenreSavvy in dealing with Adepts.

Contrast AlmightyJanitor, BadassNormal. Compare UnSorcerer and UnfazedEveryman. See also PowerNullifier for tools used to negate powers. A {{subversion}} of LamarckWasRight.

It may ultimately turn out that this person is actually a PowerNullifier, though this might not be noticed immediately. If this is common in the setting, it may be that characters are completely RandomlyGifted, so powers aren't always inherited and may spontaneously manifest to children of {{Muggle}} parents. If this happens gradually over several generations it's GenerationalMagicDecline.

*** What makes quite a few Kinfolk make resent the Garou Society is the fact, that without them the Garou Society would collapse and are still treated like rubbish.

As they are needed for reproduction, raising the children and keeping a facade of a normal life standing for normal people.

Added DiffLines:

** How a Kinfolk is treated, depends largely on the Tribe. While they are indeed basicly slaves and breeding stocks to the Get of Fenris and Shadow Lords, who are very conservative, the more liberal tribes, the Glass Walkers and Bone Gnawers treat their kinfolk pretty decent and the Children of Gaia treat them as equals.
