* The strip ''[[GrangeHill Strange Hill]]'' in ''TheBeezer'' was a variation--an ordinary ''teacher'' stuck in a horror-themed school. On one occasion he was delighted when an apparently normal boy joined his class, but he turned out to be a MadScientist.

* Tyler Marlocke of ''ComicBook/{{PS238}}'' - normal, unpowered child in a school for superkids. He doesn't pretend to be anything else, but between the fact that both his parents are legendary superheroes and the school being a constant WeirdnessMagnet, he has no choice but to become an ActionSurvivor in order to, well, survive. Currently in training to become BadassNormal.

* ''Manga/AnimalAcademy'' / ''Manga/HakobuneHakusho'': A BookDumb girl is mistakenly accepted to a school for animal shapeshifters and begs her way in (still not knowing what the school was) when the head faculty see that she's human because no other school will take her. The other students believe she's a cat, because her given name is--quite conveniently (and probably why she was first accepted)--''[[SpeciesSurname Neko]]''.

* 'Manga/'RosarioToVampire'': Tsukune accidentally gets accepted to AllGhoulsSchool in AnotherDimension and faces the death penalty for spying if discovered. [[spoiler:Turns out the BigBad of the second major arc is himself a [[EmpoweredBadassNormal former human]] who ended up at Youkai Academy under the same circumstances. And in both cases, their acceptance to the school wasn't an accident at all.]]

By mistake or some odd chain of events, an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent winds up attending an ExtranormalInstitute. Perhaps they're a human in an AllGhoulsSchool, or a {{muggle}} in a WizardingSchool, but whichever it is, [[FishOutOfWater they clearly don't fit in]]. If the {{masquerade}} is in full effect, they'll probably have to try to blend in with the ''usual'' type of student, with the consequence of failure ranging from LaserGuidedAmnesia to CruelAndUnusualDeath [[KilledToUpholdTheMasquerade to uphold the masquerade]].
