# TheChosenOne: Given powers by an [[MentorArchetype ancient and wise being]], such as an [[TouchedByVorlons alien]], one of the PowersThatBe, or a being that's a [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien combination of the two]]; e.g., Captain Marvel (who is [[IAmNotShazam not Shazam]]) or the SilverAge GreenLantern, or [[BequeathedPower the previous wielder handed it down]]. Note that the transfer of power isn't always positive as they may now be BlessedWithSuck thanks to a GypsyCurse; e.g., ComicBook/GhostRider.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': -->'''Katara:''' [[OpeningNarration Water... Earth... Fire... Air. Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony.]] [[MemeticMutation Then everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked.]] Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, could stop them. But when the world needed him most, he vanished. A hundred years passed and my brother and I discovered the new Avatar, an airbender named [[TheHero Aang]]. And although his airbending skills are great, he still has a lot to learn before he's ready to save anyone. But I believe Aang can save the world.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' gradually revealed the Doctor's identity and backstory over the course of the show. In 1969, "The War Games" established the Doctor as a {{Sufficiently Advanced|Aliens}} {{Human Alien|s}} called a TimeLord, and revealed that the Doctor stole his TARDIS.) In 1973, "The Time Warrior" gave the Doctor's home planet a name: Gallifrey. In 1976, "The Deadly Assassin" introduced Gallifrey as a [[SoiledCityOnAHill once-great world that fell into decadent corruption]], and explained that the TARDIS was a decommissioned "museum piece" in a government stockpile before the Doctor swiped it. In the late eighties, showrunner Andrew Cartmel [[WhatCouldHaveBeen planned to establish the Doctor as one of the original founders of Gallifrey]], but [[AbortedArc the show went off the air before this "Cartmel Masterplan" could come to fruition]]. And starting in 2005, [[GreatOffscreenWar the Time War]] is part of the new series backstory, taking Gallifrey out of the picture and leaving the Doctor as the LastOfHisKind.

# Non-Human Hero: They're superhuman because they're ''not'' human at all; e.g., aliens Franchise/{{Superman}} or ComicBook/MartianManhunter; after all, they're [[SpaceIsMagic from space]] or they're from a mystical realm like Franchise/WonderWoman or ComicBook/{{Aquaman}} or they're deities/demi-gods like [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]]. They might alternately be [[GeneticEngineeringIsTheNewNuke genetically engineered]], a [[WeCanRebuildHim cyborg]] (inevitably involuntary and {{Angst}}ing over his [[WhatHaveIBecome condition]]), or otherwise a [[ArtificialHuman creation of science]]; e.g., WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls. In this case, expect them to be a PhlebotinumRebel.
