* 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.]]

* Joram of ''Literature/TheDarkswordTrilogy''. There are some people in the world with so little magic they can't do anything useful with it, but Joram is unique in having absolutely no magic whatsoever. He narrowly avoids being executed for his powerlessness as a newborn, and has to spend the rest of his life faking minor magic through sleight-of-hand. Lucky for him the eponymous weapon can only be wielded by the Un-Sorcerer.

** [[spoiler: Turns out he isn't the only Dead person, once Humans from Earth find the planet the wizards all fled to centuries ago.]]
** [[spoiler: In the sequel novel, a united humanity ends up fleeing an alien race to another planet where magic is even stronger, so much that even Joram and the other previously Dead Humans have powers. He still refuses to use magic on principle.]]

* Underplayed in ''ComicBook/WhiteSand'' - Kenton, raised in a society of [[DishingOutDirt Sand Masters]], is ''by far'' the weakest one of them, to the point he's not even considered to be one: while the weakest Sand Masters apart from him can support fifteen sand lines, Kenton can barely master three. This earns him a lot of scorn from his father.

* In ''Manga/BlackClover'', Asta is one of the few people in the setting with absolutely ''no'' magic at all. Fortunately, this also makes him one of the only people who can wield the Five-leaf Clover Grimoire, which manifests its power as an AntiMagic {{BFS}}. Thanks to the years of physical training he did to make up for his magical deficiency, Asta is also strong enough to actually wield the heavy sword.

Thanks to the years of physical training he did to make up for his magical deficiency, Asta is also strong enough to actually wield the heavy sword. In addition, because nearly everyone in the world of ''Black Clover'' has magic, its infrastructure and basic education assumes the ability to use magic. This throws some of Asta's adversaries for a loop when, for instance, they cannot track his location by detecting his magic aura because he has none, or how their magic defenses account for magic attacks but not brute physical power.

** Actually there are Squibs who live among muggles like Mrs. Figg, Harrys former Babysitter or one relative if of the Weasleys, who works as a Accountant and at some point in the books it is outright stated, that squibs should better live in the nonmagical society instead of suffering amongst wizards.

* "President Thor," a story arc from ComicBook/UltimateFantasticFour. It details a world where the Skrull have given everyone superpowers; except Ben Grimm. The superpower gift is revealed to be [[spoiler: a virus that feeds power into the Ultimate Super-Skrull. It also can be activated to kill the carrier. The Skrull King activates the killer gene, but without any power source, the Super-Skrull is easily defeated by Grimm in a powersuit.]]
* A ''{{Superman}}'' comic in the 90s, pastiching UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Books}}, had everyone in Metropolis suddenly acquire Superman's powers and immediately buy a spandex costume with a cape. The exception was Dan Turpin, the only person in Metropolis who didn't ''want'' superpowers. [[spoiler: He's therefore the only person not affected by Kryptonite when Metallo shows up.]]
