Added DiffLines:

*In ''Series/{{Grimm}}'':
**Nick is a Grimm, a supernatural cop tasked with policing the monsters. This allows him to see past their human facade and grants him super strength, hearing, and reflexes.
**Adelind and [[spoiler:later Juliette]] are hexenbiest, a super powerful form of witches. [[spoiler:Juliette]] is considered stronger because she was made not born.
**Hybrids are generally considered stronger, although it's never explained why
***Diana, the daughter of a zauberbiest and a hexenbiest, is extremely powerful, manifesting reality-warping powers that frighten even seasoned practitioners.
***Kelly, the son of a hexenbiest and a grimm, has not manifested powers by the end of the series, as he is still a baby, but it is heavily implied that his zauberbiest (male equivalent of a hexenbiest) side will make him an even more effective Grimm than his dad, Nick.
***Sean Renard is an exception, half zauberbiest and half royal. He seems to only have a weak form of shape-shifting and a reasonable amount of strength given that he's almost six and a half feet tall. It is never fully explained if the royals are simply privileged humans, which would explain his weak manifestation of powers, or are a special kind of wessen.

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' has the ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'':
**The
alphas, who are also the [[MonsterProgenitor first of their kinds]].kinds]].
**Lilith, the first demon created by Lucifer.
**The princes of hell, who were the first generation of demons created after Lillith. Originally intended to be generals of Lucifer's hell army before Lucifer was caged.
**The knights of hell, were the first demons created from the souls of fallen humans. Includes Cain, the father of murder.
**The king of hell. A seeming contradiction that this would rank lower than princes and knights, but with Lucifer unable to take the throne, the King of hell is a contested position held by Crowley for the majority of the series. However, Crowley is an ascended crossroads demon, powerful, but still many rungs below the power levels of princes and knights.
**Special kids are human children who were tainted with demon blood as babies. This granted them supernatural powers such as telekinesis, super strength, mind control and other powers. This group includes, {{deuteragonist}} Sam Winchester who is often referred to by demons in early seasons as the Boy-king.
**AntiChrist Jesse Turner, is the offspring of a demon and a virgin woman. He has reality-warping powers and is supposed to aid Lucifer in the war against heaven.
***Season 13 is set to deal with Jack, a nephilim, who is the half-human son of Lucifer, himself.
**Archangels, the first four angels created by God. Includes Lucifer, Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael.

** 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.

** 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]].
