* In ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'', the royal Butterfly family has access to magic, as well as the ability to turn into butterfly-like creatures upon becoming teenagers. Only Butterfly women possess these abilities, which is why Mewni is a {{Matriarchy}}. [[spoiler:Although it turns out genes don't have anything to do with it, they just have a powerful MagicWand and are the only ones ''taught'' to use magic.]]

Added DiffLines:

** This is specifically called out in the annotations as not being genetic - only the children of the person who ends up inheriting the throne will retain the so-called "Royal Locks", and none of their siblings will pass it on.

** The royal families of Nohr and Hoshido in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' are both descended from two ancient dragons, giving them the ability to manipulate the terrain of the battlefield using "Dragon Veins". Despite not being blood-related to the royals, Azura can also use Dragon Veins, [[spoiler:due to being a descendant of Valla's royal family, as is her cousin the Avatar, who's also the son of Valla's usurper king, the dragon Anankos]]. It ''is'' technically possible to give anyone this ability (in fact, a minor plot point in [[spoiler:Gunter's]] backstory is that he ''refused'' it), but completing the stage that gives one the ability is [[NintendoHard a pain in the butt]].

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemShadowDragonAndTheBladeOfLight'' and ''VideoGame/FireEmblemMysteryOfTheEmblem'' have the royal family of Altea, whose relationship to the hero Anri allows them to wield the holy sword, Falchion. Female members can also use the Aum Staff that allows to resurect fallen character [[ItOnlyWorksOnce but only once]].
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGenealogyOfTheHolyWar'' and ''VideoGame/FireEmblemThracia776'' have the various noble families of Crusader lineage. Their Holy Blood gives them significantly higher natural abilities than commoners possess (which takes the form of special stat boosts) but more importantly, only those of the right Crusader blood can use their family's respective holy weapon or spell, all of which are devastatingly powerful.
** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemPathOfRadiance'' and ''VideoGame/FireEmblemRadiantDawn'', the imperial family of Begnion came to power due to their ability to hear the voice of the Goddess. [[spoiler: This ability is inherited from the line's [[HalfHumanHybrid non-human ancestor]]. When the previous Empress tried to reveal this, she was murdered to preserve [[DeadlyDecadentCourt senate's]] power and credibility. At the end of ''Radiant Dawn'', the true Empress decides that her sister has been doing just fine without their ancestor's power, and accepts the crown of a different country.]]
** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', only the royal line of Ylisse (who are descendants of the above-mentioned royal family of Altea) is capable of wielding Falchion, the sword that can defeat the Fell Dragon Grima; anyone else who tries to use the sword will find it to be as dull as a butter knife. Even among royalty, though, the sword is picky about who can use it. Out of the current three royal siblings ([[TheHighQueen Emmeryn]], [[WarriorPrince Chrom]], and [[SpoiledSweet Lissa]]) only Chrom can use the sword. [[spoiler:Although ''both'' of his children prove capable of wielding it. [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair Maybe it's the hair]]?]]
