* Touma Kamijou is this in a world where literally ''everyone'' can technically perform something supernatural. Even a Level 0 has a minuscule capability to warp reality, and people who have not undergone the secret procedures that turn them into espers can perform [[FunctionalMagic magic]], as evinced by [[SenseiChan Komoe]] who did so barely five minutes after having had it revealed to her. His 'Imagine Breaker' means that he has absolutely no psychic abilities, no ability to do magic, [[CosmicPlaything no luck]] (which apparently is a supernatural phenomenon), and his ability is actually to [[AntiMagic cancel anything supernatural]].

** "You're willing to cast it aside? To lower yourself to a simple human?" "What do you mean 'lower myself'? That's the only thing I've ever been. Just a simple human that couldn't save a little girl. Not even with alchemy."

* Louise the Zero from ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'' developed an [[TinyTyrannicalGirl enormous ego and hair-trigger temper]] [[NapoleonComplex to compensate for]] her lack of magical powers, something that defines nobility in her world. It turns out she actually has a very rare and powerful magical ability: [[spoiler:[[PowerOfTheVoid Void Magic]], the legendary [[ElementNumberFive Fifth Element]]...which happens to be explosion/energy-based magic.]]

* In ''WebComic/TheWotch,'' a magic shop owner is unable to use magic, but also unable to be affected by it. This makes him perfect for handling items of power and [[ArtifactOfDoom artifacts of doom]] that would be dangerous for anyone else. The downside? The Wotch can't heal him when he's wounded by teeth and claws of magic beasts, and she tends to attract those. Then again, he's immune to lycantropy too.

* Arguably, Rincewind in the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novels is this. He is such a bad wizard that one of the novels specifically says "When he dies, the occult ability of humanity will go up a fraction." However, since he is a CosmicPlaything of Lady Luck herself (he is her favorite piece), there are times when something casts magic using him as a conduit, or when a strange coincidence LOOKS like he casts a spell, etc. On the other hand, he has all of the ''other'' wizard abilities, such as the ability to see Death and octarine.

However, since he is a CosmicPlaything of Lady Luck herself (he is her favorite piece), there are times when something casts magic using him as a conduit, or when a strange coincidence LOOKS like he casts a spell, etc. In the first two books this is theorized to be because he accidentally got one of the world's most powerful spells stuck in his head which lept him from learning others, but even after getting rid of it he never managed to. On the other hand, he has all of the ''other'' wizard abilities, such as the ability to see Death and octarine.

** His [[TheMentor mentor]] Might Guy also used to be like Lee, but now he can use Ninjutsu. However, he doesn't need it and almost never uses it because his Taijutsu is superb and he's one of the strongest Konoha ninjas. [[spoiler:[[BigBad Madara Uchiha]]]] even acknowledges Guy as the greatest Taijutsu user he's even encountered.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' had the main character taken to a planet where everyone had super powers. There was one exception, and the superheroes spent their time rescuing him from various perils. He goes missing, so they bring in DW to replace him. Eventually it's revealed that he got fed up with the state of affairs, and decided to become that planet's first supervillain.

* In ''Webcomic/HarpyGee'' The epynomous character is one of these, due to [[spoiler: her magic being eaten]] as a young child. She can't use her previously powerful plant magic, nor can she be healed through magical means. However, she is also immune to hypnosis charms.

* In ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}: Cosmic Adventures In The Eight Grade'', a Red-Kryptonite meteor has everyone in Stanhope Elementary suddenly gaining powers... everyone but Lena Thorul, who loudly declares she ''doesn't'' want superpowers and she hates super-beings anyway. It doesn't help her suddenly-metahumans schoolmates immediately put on costumes and act like jerks.

* [[spoiler:Tedd Verres]] in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' by all expectations, had to inherit "insanely potent" magic from ''both'' parents, [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2012-07-06 but didn't]]. In fact, his magical ability is even less than most muggles who at least have some potential to gain spells. For [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2012-07-20 Noriko]] it's implied to be one of the reasons why she loses heart and [[MissingMom departs]] after some confusion and vague guilt. For himself, it's [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2011-10-07 plainly stated]] to be the reason for [[{{Magitek}} seizing in a different way]] what he didn't receive easily, after feeling powerless in the face of a serious threat to his friends.
** [[spoiler: Later it is revealed he does have unusual talents- he is capable of [[AntiMagic dispelling any enchantments on himself instantly]], and instinctively understands how magical spells work.]]
