A hero may find they've stumbled on a powerful artifact, or awaken MagicAndPowers that set them apart from everyone else they know only to find out that they're not so exceptional. Not only is there another, but a whole [[HeroesUnlimited bunch of them]]. While similar to SendInTheClones, these fellow heroes have been organized and operating long before the hero ever came on the scene. All of them have the same power set and usually more experience using them under their belt. Bonus points if it turn out the hero's stylistic, "unique" costume that might've come with the powers turns out to be nothing more than a standard uniform.

** ''Anime/DigimonSavers'' goes further with its Digisouls. Originally just the few characters who have their partners express their Digisoul, but during the final confrontation every human on Earth expresses a Digisoul to help avert the Digital World's impact.

* Comicbook/{{Captain Britain}} is part of the Captain Britain Corps in the ''Comicbook/{{Excalibur}}'' series, where each different Britain in the Marvel multiverse has one to defend the country. Most of them are different versions of Brian Braddock, but this isn't always the case. Since there's one for almost every reality, not every Captain Britain is Caucasian, male, or even good for that matter. There have been at least two Nazis in the role, since they technically represent the ideals of their Britain. Also Captain Granbretan and Captain Angleterre, who come from Britains that had been conquered by Napoleon. More esoteric Captains Britain have included [[Literature/NineteenEightyFour Captain Airstrip-One]], [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs Britanicus Rex]], [[UsefulNotes/TheRomanEmpire Centurion Britannus]], [[ComicBook/CaptainAmerica Captain Colonies]], [[Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}} Spider-UK]], and at least two Skrulls. Oh, and Captain UsefulNotes/{{Wales}}.

* In ''Literature/DanceoftheButterfly'', the [[spoiler:demon hunters]] are very rare in comparison to the overall human population on earth, but there are still many of them. They use their special abilities to fight for humanity.

* Franchise/TheDCU's Franchise/GreenLantern Corps, made up of members from all over the universe and this trope's original TropeNamer. Being an Earth-based Green Lantern is doubly non-impressive, because there are ''five'' human [=GLs=] already, though they tend to be [[HumansAreSpecial among the best]] in the Corps. However, this has varied over the years, as the Corps has wavered between a pure police/military outfit and a 3600-member super-hero team where everyone just happens to have the same power. Today, it's somewhere in between: All Green Lanterns have the same power and order is strictly enforced, but individual members can have highly distinctive costumes and styles of using said power. For instance, John Stewart has a fairly standard costume but his ring constructs are highly-detailed pieces of engineering, whereas Guy Gardner has a very unusual costume but just blasts things with his ring, and honorary member Alan Scott's costume is ''bright red and purple'' and his ring constructs appear covered in spectral flames[[note]]in the Golden Age, there was no Corps or Guardians, and Scott actually ''was'' unique; this has since been retconned all over the place, but in most reimaginings of the character he's only distantly connected to the Guardians and the Corps at best, and his ring is powered by a different source[[/note]].\\\

** In the first game, Sora's Keyblade is presented as the only one in existence, and he's the only chosen master (after a brief tug-of-war with [[RivalTurnedEvil Riku]]). Then, right at the very end, King Mickey shows up with another, from the Realm of Darkness.

** The prequel shows he wasn't kidding: there were 7 or possibly 8 (Terra, Aqua, Ven, Master Xehanort, Master Eraqus, Mickey, Vanitas and the retired Yen Sid) before the "new generation". Even this, however, pales next to the army of thousands, possibly ''millions'' (there were enough for five Unions) in the distant past. Problem was, they all got distrustful of the others and went to war with each other, fracturing the universe, plunging the MacGuffin into the darkness, and leaving behind an enormous FieldOfBlades. Sora seems to be the "main" Chosen One, for reasons that seem to have more to do with his heart than his Keyblade, but the [[ShrugOfGod details are still a little vague]].
