* In the ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' universe, mutant supremacists, mostly those less erudite than Magneto, call non-mutants "flatscans" (while referring to themselves as "spikes"), referring to their presence or lack thereof when scanned by power detectors. Also used by Neo Warclan to refer to other, less highly-powered mutants, vis-a-vis Domina et. al. Weaker mutants are also sometimes referred to as "halfscan", implying that they're basically a mutant in name only.

* ''Series/BabylonFive'''s Psi Corps uses the term "mundane" for the non-telepathic population; its usage varies from slightly offensive to virtually spat out as an insult (generally by Psi Cops). The "mundanes" themselves tend to use the term "normal," and good if not perfect way of divining a telepath's support or antipathy for the Psi Corps is knowing which term they use in conversation with other telepaths.
** Here is the Psi Corps "ranking" system: psi cops, other members of the corps, telepaths who take pills, "blips" (rogue telepaths), and mundanes. That's right, normal humans rate lower on their scale than traitors. An episode shows the fate of a human who kills a "blip"--he's ThrownOutTheAirlock in hyperspace.

* Normal people often referred to like this in ''Series/DoctorWho''. An example, in the 1996 movie when a newscast explains away recent strange events occurring because of the Doctor's adventure as "normal" weather events, the Doctor remarks something close to "I love humans, always seeing patterns that aren't there".
** Of course, a recurring theme in ''Series/DoctorWho'' is that there are no ''real'' muggles. Anyone who's smart or brave can help the world. This is why 90% of the Doctor's companions are otherwise normal people whose meeting and travels with the Time Lord lets them achieve extraordinary things, even after they've parted company.
** On the whole, there are far less muggles, in the sense of people with no-idea what's going on, after the masquerade officially broke. Now aliens existing is just a fact of life for planet Earth.
* In the series ''Series/{{Bewitched}}'', neighbor Gladys Kravitz is a type of muggle. She witnesses odd goings-on at the Stephens' house, but her husband doesn't believe her. She typically treats Samantha with coolness and suspicion because she knows there's something off about her but can't figure out what. Though Samantha is friendly to her, she has learned to be careful around the nosy Mrs. Kravitz.
** Non-witches/wizards in the series in general are call mortals.

** Earth ponies seemed to be this at first, as they lack the {{Flight}} and WeatherControl of the [[{{Pegasus}} pegs]] and the magic of the {{unicorn}}s. However, this is subverted in that they do have passive magic that connects them to the earth that allows them to interact with plant and animal life more effectively. In later appearances, they also consistently display an astonishing capacity for physical strength, such as [[PintsizedPowerhouse Maud Pie]] pummeling a house-sized boulder to dust in seconds [[RapidFireFisticuffs with her bare hooves]], or [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower Big Macintosh ripping a house out of its foundations]] and dragging it away ''while hopping''.

* People who are still plugged into ''Film/TheMatrix'', unaware of its virtual nature, are known as "Coppertops" (in reference to a battery) or, later, "bluepills" (whether they've been offered the [[RedPillBluePill pills]] or not). Morpheus makes the borderline psychopathic observation that they're either directly (as vessels for Agents) or indirectly (as soldiers, cops, etc.) tools of the system, and thus expendable if necessary, leading to their wholesale slaughter by the heroes at the climax of the first film.
** One of the biggest criticisms of the sequel is that there ''were'' no Muggles (almost), reducing the previously mindblowing Matrix to a [[YourMindMakesItReal high-stakes]] video game.

* The TropeNamer (with a capital M) comes from the British name for non-magical people in the ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' universe ([[SeparatedByACommonLanguage in America]] [[Film/FantasticBeastsAndWhereToFindThem they're called No-Maj's]]). Some notable ones include: The Dursleys, Tom Riddle Sr, Hermione's parents, and Frank Bryce.

** In ''TabletopGame/GeniusTheTransgression'', "mortals" are often the bane of [[MadScientist Geniuses]], as they can cause [[WeirdScience Wonders]] to [[PhlebotinumBreakdown go horribly wrong]] by trying to use them. For Geniuses, TheMasquerade is enforced by the circumstances of their powers rather than an organisation, since the things they make generally [[NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup can't be recreated]] and [[MagicPoweredPseudoscience don't quite run on scientific principles]].
*** It's gotten a bit better for Geniuses. It used to be that Havoc could be caused simply by 'mere mortals' ''looking at them''. Now, mortals have to touch or analyse the Wonder to cause Havoc. Geniuses are now free to walk in broad daylight with a death ray and start zapping the crap out of people. The Masquerade is still up, though, because a large-scale revelation of just the mere existance of Genii would cause widespread Inspiration and since none of the Genii organisations would be able to deal with that number, it would lead to massive amounts of Unmada and Illuminated walking the earth. And that would almost certainly mean the end of the human race as a whole.

* Although they're not an integral part of ''[[VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon FEAR]]'''s plot, and the game itself makes no distinction, they're of note... for this being perhaps the only time their AllOfTheOtherReindeer status works to the hero's advantage. The main character is the member of a special ops team devoted to response to paranormal incidents. He's teamed with a normal special ops squad that don't take this seriously, and thus send him off on a meaningless errand to open the gate, something which it would've made more sense for one of them to handle... because of this, he's not in the area when the killer ghost hiding on the other side of the gate decides to liquefy the entire squad, leaving only charred skeletons.
** Then averted with Team Dark Signal in ''Project Origin''. Though they don't know what's going on at first, they very, ''very'' quickly catch on to just how serious the supernatural shit they are dealing with really is, and by the middle of the game they're accepting the presence of psychic phenomenon and undead ghosts.

* In the autistic community, the terms "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neurotypical neurotypical]]" and/or "allistic" are used to refer to the dominant brain type, due to the negative implications of calling nonautists "normal", as that would imply there being something wrong with autism in general.

** 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 too much. Nobility in Halkegenia is inextricably tied to the ability to use magic, a principle the continental religion, which is centered around magic, reinforces. Even those of noble birth who are unfortunate to have [[MuggleBornOfMages poor magical talent]] get a reduced social standing, and are generally disfavored and married off for political deals, or even disowned. 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 explosive lost ancient magic]]).

Ostracism and even violence are not uncommon among certain faiths.
