* The majority of people in the [[{{Deryni}} Eleven Kingdoms]] are not Deryni. Because of their relative numbers and ecclesiastical power, they are able to persecute the Deryni for over two centuries, making the {{Masquerade}} a necessary evil during that period.

* Earth Ponies in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' seem to be this at first, as they lack the {{Flight}} of a {{Pegasus}} and the magic of a {{Unicorn}}. However, they do have passive magic that connects them to the earth that allows them to interact with plant and animal life more effectively. In more obvious abilities, they display an astonishing capacity for physical strength, such as [[PintsizedPowerhouse Maud Pie]] pummeling a house-sized boulder to dust [[RapidFireFisticuffs with her bare hooves]], or [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower Big Macintosh ripping a house off its foundation]] and dragging it away ''while hopping''.

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 more obvious abilities, later appearances, they consistently display an astonishing capacity for physical strength, such as [[PintsizedPowerhouse Maud Pie]] pummeling a house-sized boulder to dust [[RapidFireFisticuffs with her bare hooves]], or [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower Big Macintosh ripping a house off its foundation]] and dragging it away ''while hopping''.

** In UC continuity following ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'', regular humans are sometimes referred to as "Oldtypes", as distinct from the "Newtypes" that represent [[EvolutionaryLevels the next stage of humanity's evolution]]. Rather to the point, some people who believe Newtypes ''are'' the next stage of evolution will use "Oldtype" as a [[FantasticRacism Fantastic Slur]] against those who would get in the way of that evolution.

* In ''TheBartimaeusTrilogy'', ordinary people (i.e. non-magicians) are looked at with distaste and referred to as "commoners." A bit subverted, in that the wizards are shown to be corrupt aristocrats oppressing the commoners, and one of the main characters is an AntiHero trying to overthrow the current regime.

* 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 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.
