* Even though [[Literature/HarryPotter Argus Filch]] is technically a MuggleBornOfMages, he's treated by the narrative and by other characters as a sad little thing to be pitied for his tragic circumstances. Nowhere do the books suggest that there are any other options for [[MuggleBornOfMages squibs]] like him. This is likely due to the Wizarding Community (at least in Britain) and their lack of interactions with Muggles. Most wizards would probably be genuinely baffled at the idea of going off to live among the muggles. This never becomes an advantage.
** There are Squibs who live among muggles, such as an accountant who's a second cousin to Mrs. Weasley. Mrs. Figg, Harry's former babysitter and neighbor, is heavily implied to be one. At some point in the books it is outright stated that squibs would rather live in nonmagical society than suffer amongst wizards.

* [[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. Later it is revealed he does have unusual talents- [[spoiler:he is capable of [[AntiMagic dispelling any enchantments on himself instantly]], is capable of literally "seeing" magic, and instinctively understands how magical spells work.]] One magical creature described him as "Not a spellcaster, but a far more dangerous rarity."

* 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.

* Rock Lee from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', the only Konoha ninja who can't perform Ninjutsu or Genjutsu (offensive and illusion magic), but he's a Taijutsu (martial arts) expert.
** 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 to the point of being one of the strongest Konoha ninjas, and limiting himself to Taijutsu is a show of solidarity with his pupil. [[spoiler:[[BigBad Madara Uchiha]]]] even acknowledges Guy as the greatest Taijutsu user he's even encountered.

* The hero of ''Manga/IrisZero'' lives in a world where most of the children are born with [[MagicalEye Magical Eyes]] and was once thought to have the power to tell what other people's powers are. He's really just [[GuileHero incredibly clever]].

* In ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', protagonist Izuku Midoriya starts out this way, being one of the minority to reach his teenage years without developing any sort of Quirk. Despite this weakness, he winds up impressing [[WorldsStrongestMan All Might]], the world's greatest hero, when he tries to save his classmate from a criminal. All Might chooses to start training Midoriya to be his successor, and eventually grants Midoriya his own Quirk, "One For All", turning him into an EmpoweredBadassNormal. [[spoiler:Turns out All Might used to be one too until his predecessor gave him "One For All".]]

* Minor example in Creator/LarryNiven's ''The Smoke Ring'': occasionally a "dwarf" is born whose growth isn't distorted by the zero-gee environment -- in other words, a normal human. They're considered ugly, but if your clan happens to own one of the ancient space-suits, guess who's the right size to wear it?

* ''Fanfic/TriptychContinuum'' has a variation with Pinkie Pie. Whilst she does have her canon WildMagic, it comes at the expense of having absolutely none of the traditional Earth Pony magic. She is, to those few who know this, effectively a deaf-mute in a society composed entirely of musicians. It's been theorized, based on what little is confirmed about "The Warped", that Pinkie has essentially been given Unicorn magic in place of Earth Pony magic, with her various tricks (SpiderSense, conjuration, teleportation, etc) being the result of how she's able to deploy a magic that she has had to figure out by intuition rather than education.
