-->'''Alessan''': You will have heard the legend. It happens to be true. The line of the Princes of Tigana, all those in direct descent, can bind a wizard to them unto death.

* In FinalFantasyXV, the royalty of Lucis can use magic due to the power of the [[MineralMacGuffin Crystal]]. This magic includes storing weapons and other objects and [[HyperspaceArsenal summoning them at will]], warping short distances or to a thrown object, and drawing elemental energy from the environment to craft spells. They can also share these abilities with others.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGenealogyOfTheHolyWar'' and ''VideoGame/Thracia776'' 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.

* The ''{{Superman}} vs Doomsday'' comic: Doomsday, [[WhyWontYouDie an invincible regenerating monstrosity that adapts to anything attacking it to the point of]] NoSell, experiences his first defeat when the royal family of a planet commit mass suicide to merge into a being of PureEnergy (which Doomsday had not yet encountered, and so was powerless against it). Unfortunately, they cast his body into deep space instead of burning it... Said royal family had developed limited PsychicPowers through centuries of inbreeding, but it was only through their sacrifice that these powers could be unleashed.

* Invoked by the ''{{Literature/Discworld}}'' philosopher Ly Tin Wheedle:
--> The only thing known to go faster than ordinary light is monarchy, according to the philosopher Ly Tin Wheedle. He reasoned like this: you can't have more than one king, and tradition demands that there is no gap between kings, so when a king dies the succession must therefore pass to the heir instantaneously. Presumably, he said, there must be some elementary particles -- kingons, or possibly queons -- that do this job, but of course succession sometimes fails if, in mid-flight, they strike an anti-particle, or republicon. His ambitious plans to use his discovery to send messages, involving the careful torturing of a small king in order to modulate the signal, were never fully expanded because, at that point, the bar closed.
