** The Empire is led by the Sith, wielders of the dark side of the Force who possess powers that are magical in everything but name. The ability to wield the Force is innate - an average person cannot be trained in it. It's a pretty small elite, since there are only ever [[RuleOfTwo two Sith Lords at the same time]], a Master (Sidious) and an Apprentice (Vader).

* The Empire from ''Franchise/StarWars'' is led by the Sith, wielders of the dark side of the Force who possess powers that are magical in everything but name. The ability to wield the Force is innate - an average person cannot be trained in it. The Republic (both old and new) and the Rebel Alliance likewise have the Jedi, wielders of the light side of the Force. The Jedi serve rather than leading the Republic, but they act as diplomats and elite warriors, having the authority to negotiate peace over a trade dispute and even replacing the regular army by the time the prequels start.

* The Psi Lords of Takis in the ''WildCards'' series have built up this mystique around themselves, although in practice they are really just products of a SuperBreedingProgram to produce ever-greater [[{{Telepathy}} telepathic powers]].
* All European royals and nobles in Neil Gaiman's short story ''Literature/AStudyInEmerald'' (an IntercontinuityCrossover between SherlockHolmes and the CthulhuMythos) literally have [[AlienBlood blue blood]]. They're all either {{Eldritch Abomination}}s or the [[HalfHumanHybrid half-human]] [[HumanoidAbomination progeny]] of {{Eldritch Abomination}}s.

* In ''TrueBlood'', the vampires operate on a feudal system. A Vampire King/Queen claims a territory and appoints sheriffs to administer it for him/her. Usually the most powerful and/or oldest vampire becomes the monarch, however, the position can be reached if a vampire is politically connected with the Authority who seem to be a governing council above the monarchies.
* ''VampireDiaries'' has the Originals, who seem to be the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin original]] vampire family. They're the strongest vampires around and can compel lesser vampires to do their bidding. They cannot be killed with standard anti-vampire methods. They're mostly unknown among younger vampires since [[spoiler: the Original Klaus hunted down the rest of his family and put them into a suspended state]].

* This appears in the ''{{Deryni}}'' works, and King Kelson Haldane in particular holds that his arcane powers, which he distinguishes from those of [[PsychicPowers Deryni]] in general, are a manifestation of divine favour, signifying his right to rule. He says as much during an archiepiscopal tribunal investigating Duncan [=McLain's=] marriage:

* In MarionZimmerBradley's ''{{Darkover}}'' series the Comyn are seen as this. The mythical origin is that they have divine ancestry. But in reality they are HalfHumanHybrid descendants of humans and a race of SpaceElves with PsychicPowers.

* In the obscure PS2-game ''[[{{Deception}} Kagero: Deception 2]]'', humans are basically second-class to a nobility consisting of 'Timenoids' - blue-skinned immortals. As the player, you are initially a slave to the Timenoids, but eventually, you must decide whether to help them brutally suppress an emerging human uprising, help LaResistance destroy the Timenoid elite, or just KillEmAll.
