** Neville Longbottom's family thought he was one until he was eight, when his grandfather pushed him out a window to see if it'd cause his powers to save him. Thankfully, they did.

** Neville Longbottom's family thought he was one until he was eight, when his grandfather pushed him out a window to see if it'd cause his powers to save him. Thankfully, they did. In his grandfather's defense, he didn't ''purposely'' drop him out a window. He'd been dangling him out it to try and trigger a magical response, and was distracted.

* ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'', the third season of ''LyricalNanoha'', features a minor example: Teana (mistakenly) believes that she is the only one on [[HeroesRUs Riot Force 6]] without special talents/powers and that she doesn't belong there. While it is true that she doesn't have special ''magic'' talents (barring her shooting and illusion spells), her exceptionally sharp mind and timing (and a [[BeamSpam Crossfire Shoot]] from [[OlderAndWiser Nanoha]], and [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan "held-back" punch]] from [[LadyOfWar Signum]], and a major {{Reveal}} from [[MrExposition Shari]]... yes, Tea is stubborn like that) eventually make her a MagicalGirl equivalent of Franchise/{{Batman}}.

** Vegeta spends the first half of the series complaining about how he is the Prince of all Saiyans but couldn't turn into a Super Saiyan yet. Also, he was upset when Goku, Gohan, and Future Trunks were all able to turn Super Saiyan before him.

* In ''{{Exalted}}'', the Realm of the Dragon-blooded functions like this. Not every child with the blood Exalts, but quite a few do. Therefore, those who do not Exalt tend to fall under the [[TheUnfavorite worst case scenario]], unless they Exalt as a Celestial...in which case they get both the "better & rarer" powers and the instant enmity of their entire Empire.

* 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.
