* The Cutie Mark Crusaders from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' are late-bloomers. They don't know what their talent in life is (despite it being pretty obvious to the viewers) and are looking around desperately to find one. This portrayal is probably unique in that SelectiveObliviousness is the only reason they don't have it.

* In ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' second-generation capes tend to trigger easily and third-generation capes even more so. This leaves Theo, son of Kaiser and grandson of Allfather, a peculiarity. The Pure capes eventually suss out it's because Kayden and her friends were always there for him so he never reached the right [[TraumaticSuperpowerAwakening state of mind to trigger]]. [[spoiler:They abandon him to be captured by the PRT, where he eventually triggers]].

* This trope is the very premise of ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', where main character Izuku "Deku" Midoriya is one of the only normal people in a world where nearly everyone has superpowers (much to his dismay).

* This trope is the very premise of ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', where main character Izuku "Deku" Midoriya is one of the only normal people in a world where nearly everyone has superpowers (much to his dismay). This changes when he impresses his favorite hero, All Might, whose power "One For All" has a unique trait that allows it to be [[PassingTheTorch passed along to a successor]].

* [[BadassNormal Sokka]] was speaking the truth at the time of the page quote. A quarter or more of all people in his world ''are'', like him, without powers, but he is the [[BadassNormal only character among the main protagonists]] who isn't a bender and cannot become one. However, this only serves to distract the people around him from the simple fact that he is the only trained leader or warrior in the main group. His friends would be in deep trouble without his skills, and by the end of the series (actually, of that very episode!) he's packing a sword made of ThunderboltIron and is trained by a MasterSwordsman. Although WordOfGod has it that like his sister, he actually ''did'' have Waterbending potential, but never realised it.

* {{Temeraire}} starts out this way, sort of. Some [[OurDragonsAreDifferent breeds of dragons]] have breath weapons. Temeraire is identified as a breed which does not, and he is disappointed. At the end of the first book, [[spoiler: we learn that the dragon expert misidentified his breed, and in an example of almost literal DeusExMachina Temeraire actually can generate something called the "divine wind", a sort of [[MakeMeWannaShout supercharged roar]] which shatters wood, eardrums, and at point blank range even the earth]].

* In MercedesLackey's ''HeraldsOfValdemar'' novels, the Call comes in the form of a beautiful white horse(-like magical being). The not-Called or not-yet-Called deal with it in various ways. Princess Elspeth, who needs a Call in order to be the rightful Heir, spends her time lurking around the pasture... just in case.
