* Both the House of Haldane (rulers of Gwynedd) and the House of Furstan (rulers of Torenth) in the ''{{Deryni}}'' works are deeply associated with magic.

* 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.

* ''Literature/Neverwhere'': All of the House of Portico are Openers, a power that is [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower MUCH more useful than it sounds]].

* 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).

** His abilities to control the Dead Men of Dunharrow (a host of spectral undead) and interact with them as if they were solid, abilities granted by the oath they swore to his family, are less ambiguous.

* The whole point of ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}''. The Dragon-Blooded rule the Realm because their hereditary elemental superpowers are considered a sign of being chosen by the Elemental Dragons (which may even be true). However, there are other types of Exalted, all of whom are much more powerful than the Dragon-Blooded and were personally handpicked by gods who outrank the Dragons. Who has a true mandate to rule the world? And who is best suited to defend it from the Things that want to destroy it?

* In Gail Dayton's ''Literature/OneRoseTrilogy'', rulership of the nation of Adara isn't hereditary; the ruler is selected by the nobles and the officials of the state church. It's technically possible for someone without magical powers to be selected, but there's a definite bias toward those who have them, especially powers that are useful for ruling, such as being able to sense lies.
