** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', only the royal line of Ylisse 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]]?]]

Sometimes this is the product of SuperpowerfulGenetics, other times it's an object passed down, or a ritual that the royals invoke that grants them their powers. Other times it is just handwaved as the Divine Right of Kings with a [[ReligionIsMagic deity granting them their abilities]] (especially if it takes the form of [[MedicalMonarch healing magic]]), or just because EverythingIsBetterWithPrincesses.

* In MahouSenseiNegima members of Ostian royal family exhibit the ability to use something called simply Royal Magic, with which [[TheHighQueen Arika]] is shown to easily break through [[WorldsStrongestMan Nagi's]] barriers. Asuna's [[AntiMagic Magic Cancel]] is implied to be a rare form the power can manifest as.

* One issue of ''JusticeSocietyOfAmerica'' reveals that [[GoodOldFisticuffs Wildcat]] is descended from royalty, which gives him the power to defeat that story's villain in a ProphecyTwist.
* The Asgardian Royal Family tends to have more of and more than just the ordinary Asgardian SuperStrength. [[TheMightyThor Thor's]] weather powers are inherent, for one thing. Thor's greater strength however, is because his mother was Gaea, who is somewhat higher on the cosmic scale than the Asgardian royal family, being ''the'' Mother goddess.

* Subverted in ''VisualNovel/LongLiveTheQueen''. It initially appears that all Lumen belong to noble bloodlines, but this is only because Lumen who ''aren't'' politically important [[BurnTheWitch are the subject of discrimination]] and hate crimes...so there are consequently less of them. The potential for magic ''is'' passed along the royal bloodline, but it doesn't belong to them alone.
