* In the manga ''ElfenLied'' assert the Kakuzawas that they were the descendants of pure Diclonius who have lived in the Japanese Middle Ages, and were greatly feared by the humans, and the cause of the myths about gods and demons. But they had common offspring with ordinary humans what their DNS "diluted". Their forces were weaker, and were eventually completely lost, so that humans have they brutally hunted and killed.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'': It's believed a MageBornOfMuggles comes from having a witch or wizard somewhere in their ancestry, though once the FantasticRacists come to power anyone but the wizard-descended and those who have an immediate wizarding relative are considered to have "stolen" their magic ([[InsaneTrollLogic it's not explained how]]) and referred to as "Mudbloods".

* In ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'', the first humans were actually called nephalem (being the hybrid children of angels and demons), and had great powers of varying effect. Each successive generation of nephalem was less powerful, so eventually the species lost that name and became 'humanity'. (This lore also justifies character classes- a human barbarian is following in the footsteps of the first nephalem barbarian, who founded that martial order.) In the present day, Diablo!humans still have the ''potential'' to wield great power, they just can't realize it as effortlessly as nephalem could.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'', the first ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'' universe, the original humans of Sanctuary were actually called nephalem (being the hybrid children offspring of angels and demons), demons, and were known as the Nephalem. The Nephalem had great power from both their angelic and demonic ancestry, and such was this power that it was feared that the Nephalem would eclipse both angels and demons alike. So the Worldstone was tuned to weaken the Nephalem's powers of varying effect. Each with each successive generation of nephalem was less powerful, so eventually until the species lost that name and became 'humanity'. (This lore also justifies character classes- a human barbarian is following in the footsteps humans we know today. Following the destruction of the first nephalem barbarian, who founded that martial order.) In Worldstone at the present day, Diablo!humans still end of ''VideoGame/DiabloII'', the Nephalem have begun to reappear, capable of doing many things normal humans would believe impossible, including [[spoiler:bringing low both the ''potential'' to wield great power, they just can't realize it as effortlessly as nephalem could.reincarnation of Tathamet himself and the Archangel of Death]].

* In ''Literature/TheBible'' the first humans are depicted as living for anywhere from 300 to 900 years, even the ones who didn't have god-given superpowers. Justified in other cases like Samson, or the miracles of the prophets like Moses, Elijah and Jesus. There is implication that humans were originally created immortal with natural abilities that could be considered superhuman but greatly diminished after the Fall and have been further declining over time, healthcare and technology notwithstanding.

* The [[SpaceMarines Adeptus Astartes]] of Warhammer40K are slowly transformed from ordinary if battle-hardened humans to the seven-foot-tall SuperSoldiers by regular genetic therapy from the geneseed of the fifteen-foot tall quasi-war god Primarchs, which is why they share some of their personality traits. The Primarchs themselves were created from the genetic material of the Emperor, and a diluted version of the process creates the GreyKnights and the Adeptus Custodes, who are to Astartes what Astartes are to normal humans.

** Fleur Delacour is repeatedly described as extremely beautiful (her sister Gabrielle has a slightly lesser effect, but she's only fourteen) and entrancing to men, it turns out her grandmother is a veela, a siren-like magical creature.

** Voldemort is descended from one of Hogwarts' founders (a Parseltongue, a rare ability that allowed him to speak with snakes) and believes in the purity of blood (despite the fact that most of the pureblood families are heavily inbred, and himself is half-Muggle), while Harry is descended from a family of wizards who created extremely potent magic items, to the point where legend held them made by Death itself.
