** The notion of the second-class muggle and magical elite goes further than the practical fact that they would [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking get their asses handed to them]] if they complained. Nobility in Halkegenia is inextricably tied to the ability to use magic, a principle the continental religion reinforces. Even those of noble birth who are unfortunate to have [[MuggleBornOfMages poor magical talent]] get a reduced social standing, and are generally married off for political deals, or disfavored and potentially disowned.

Nobility in Halkegenia is inextricably tied to the ability to use magic, a principle the continental religion religion, which is centered around magic, reinforces.

This weighs heavily on the apparently talentless Louise when she tries to prove that she is a mage worthy of the house of Valliere (later she is revealed [[spoiler:to actually be a [[PowerOfTheVoid Void]] mage, a wielder of a very powerful and potentially disowned.explosive lost ancient magic]]).

* In ''LightNovel/TheFamilliarOfZero'', people without the ability to use magic (who consist the majority of the population) are labeled as commoners or plebeians and are considered second-class citizens subservient to the [[TheMagocracy magical elite]].

** It also helps practically that the common folk are not in a position to complain, as powerful mages has the power to decimate entire armies of non-magical soldiers.

* ''[[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons Dungeons & Dragons]]'' has special, low-powered, "NPC classes" for people who are explicitly not heroes; the weakest of these, the Commoner class, can easily be outmatched by a normal housecat.

* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'': Psykers are humans with psychic powers that are swiftly hunted down and taken to Holy Terra for indoctrination, with Navigators going blind but developing a ThirdEye that lets them see the Warp. As a result, most of them are as insulting and abrasive towards non-psykers (they "consider us as little more than orks with table manners", to quote Literature/CiaphasCain) as non-psykers are towards people who could at any moment explode into a daemon-vomiting portal to the Warp.

* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', the non-chakra users are ordinary people who rely on the ninja and samurai for defense, as well as for doing mundane jobs quickly (dog walking, pet search and rescue, weeding, trash clean-up). It's shown they are completely and utterly helpless against the many enemies in the series. However, unlike most universes they don't resent the chakra users (like, ahem, {{Marvel}}'s universe.)

They are the ones whom the {{Masquerade}} is used to hide from, who can't get into (or perhaps even perceive) the WainscotSociety, and whom nobody (not even the heroes) mind if they get their [[LaserGuidedAmnesia memories wiped of supernatural events]]. Sometimes reality itself conspires to hide the plot from their minds, in ways like the ExtraStrengthMasquerade, BystanderSyndrome, WeirdnessCensor, and InvisibleToNormals. Then again, they may just not want to know because ApathyKilledTheCat.
