* The TropeNamer (with a capital M) comes from the name for non-magical people in the ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' universe. Some notable ones include: The Dursleys, Tom Riddle Sr, Hermione's parents, and Frank Bryce. Muggles in Harry Potter tend to not play very big roles in the series, and wizards such as the Death Eaters tend to abuse them. ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince'' contains a memorable scene in which the Muggle Prime Minster (that is, the [[UsefulNotes/TheMenOfDowningStreet Prime Minister]]) meets the Minister for Magic.

* Non-[[SocietyForCreativeAnachronism SCA]] folks are called "mundanes" by members. Mundanes are also the clothes you wear in everyday life. (Same goes for Amtgard and (some) Renaissance Faires)

* 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.

* In ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', only people who have a Stand are capable of seeing others' Stands. Ordinary people cannot see Stands, but can see how they affect the world around them. When we're first introduced to the concept of Stands, as Jotaro's Star Platinum fights Avdol's Magician's Red, the two cops are amazed at how Jotaro is being thrown around without Avdol touching him, and are equally as amazed at how the temperature in the jail cell is through the roof while Joseph and [[spoiler:Holly]] can both see [[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/c6/1b/31/c61b31b8096091f6e17270d3744b125e.jpg this hpapening]].

Stands are paranormal phenomena, and the Luca entry isn't as clear
* In ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', only people who have a Stand are capable of seeing others' Stands. Ordinary people cannot see Stands, but can see how they affect the world around them, giving off the appearance of paranormal phenomena. One notable example is Leaky-Eye Luca from ''Vento Aureo'', who's the only member of Buccellati's Group and possibly Passione to not have a Stand.

* In a particularly interesting example, Gail Simone's SecretSix features a conversation between Catman and Deadshot in which they refer to "Norms," people who possess a normal sense of morality (conscience) as opposed to their own semi-to-full sociopathy. Since the main cast of the series is entirely composed of supervillains with an extremely... warped view of morality... this is a rather chilling use of the trope.

**Non-witches/wizards in the series in general are call mortals. * As in ''Series/{{Bewitched}}'', mortals play basically the same role as muggles in ''SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' universe.
