* In {{Warbreaker}}, more of an identifier than a useful power, the Idrian royal line can change the color of their hair based on their emotions. It is useful way to demonstrate their strong will and self-control, though, because it can be controlled with extreme effort.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'': Invoked, but ultimately averted. During the Frieza Saga, Vegeta believes that the [[SuperMode Super Saiyan]] is this, along with needing to be TheChosenOne. He's proven wrong when he's unable to ascend to defeat Frieza, and it's [[TheRival Goku]], a lower-class warrior, who becomes the first Super Saiyan in a thousand years.

* 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.]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Drawn}}'': The royal family is said to have possessed magic, presumably the same ArtIntiatesLife power that Iris, the sole royal survivor possesses.

* A bit ambiguous in ''Film/{{Krull}}''. Colwyn's ability to control the Glaive (let alone reach into lava to retrieve it) are probably from his status as TheChosenOne, though the parallels to the Sword In The Stone are obvious. Similarly, the minor pyrokinetic powers Lessa demonstrates during the wedding and the <I>major</I> pyrokinetic powers that Colwyn demonstrates once the wedding is completed may be a function of the wedding ceremony itself, a power of the royal bloodlines, or some combination of the two (i.e., a result of members of the royal bloodlines becoming a mated pair).
