* 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?

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.

Added DiffLines:

* In the setting of ''Anime/CrossAnge'', everyone can use the magic known as the Light of Mana. The few who can't are called norma. Not only can't they use the Light of Mana, but any construct created with it shatters upon the slightest contact with a norma. Also, norma are persecuted to an insane degree, starting with being treated as less than human and getting worse from there.

* 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 may have to do with the ignorance of the wizarding world towards {{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 related to the Weasleys. Mrs. Figg, Harry's former babysitter, 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.

* ''Blog/AlwaysHavingJuice'' features a subversion of the usual aesop. Maria Robotnik was born with a genetic defect that meant she was born without powers. Because the ability to have powers was so ingrained in the biology of those living on Planet Mobius, her lack of powers also meant she was terminally ill and had to be quarantined in order to lower her risk of dying from exposure. [[DownerEnding She was killed by gunshot during a raid of the hospital she was living in]] and never accomplished anything while she was alive.

* Louise the Zero from ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'' is this among her peers, who developed an [[TinyTyrannicalGirl enormous ego and hair-trigger temper]] [[InferioritySuperiorityComplex to compensate for]] her [[HighHopesZeroTalent inability to succesfully perform magic]], something [[TheMagocracy 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.]]

* [[spoiler:Edward Elric]] becomes this at the end of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' (the manga and ''Brotherhood'' continuity), giving up his ability to perform alchemy [[spoiler:to bring Al's body back]]. Note that while most people in the setting aren't alchemists, this technically counts as an example because he is now the only human we know of who is ''physically incapable'' of alchemy rather than simply lacking knowledge of how to do it.
** "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."
