** The Bloodrager class is somewhat similar, but in addition to some slight magic, the majority of the inheritance is a terrible rage where the individual exhibits strange and frightening powers. Like the Sorcerer, this inheritance be due to a half-human ancestor or exposure to arcane energies somewhere in the history of the bloodline.

* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' draws a distinction between "wizards," members of such a species (of which no women have yet been seen), and "awakened," who have been given personal magic by external means. This is in addition to the inherent magic of [[LittleGreenMen Uryuoms]] and [[HalfHumanHybrid Seyunolus]] and the {{Magitek}} that anyone can use.

* In ''Manga/AkazukinChaCha'', a young girl is going to a WizardingSchool. The ''school bus'' is an enlarged FlyingBroomstick.
* In ''Manga/TheAncientMagusBride'', the sleigh beggy. It's also heavily implied that, while almost anyone can become an alchemist, only people born into magic can become mages. However, due to persecution after the last war, they are a dying race.
* In ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'', WizardsAndWitches live amongst "normal" people. Supernatural powers and psychic abilities are passed along family lines; some families (like the Li family) are very aware of this and pay great attention to lineage, other families (like the Kinomoto family) less so. Sakura falls into the category of CuteWitch; Creator/{{CLAMP}} wanted to put a twist on the typical MagicalGirl genre.
* In ''Anime/ElCazadorDeLaBruja'', witches are a nearly extinct subspecies of humans who mostly lost their powers in modern times. Ellis is an artificial witch, created in an attempt to restore the magical bloodline. Jodie, on the other hand, is a pure-blood witch but has about as much magical potential as any baseline human. [[spoiler:It is also suggested that there were further artificial witches besides Ellis (possibly including L.A.) but they all died/were killed off.]]



* ''{{Franchise/Jewelpet}}'': The titular Jewelpets all have a natural ability to cast magic. This is downplayed as other beings, like humans, can cast magic too, but they have to learn it.



* In ''Mahou Shoujo Tai Alice'' (aka ''Anime/TweenyWitches''), witches (female) and warlocks (male) are a human-like magic-using species in a magical dimension; witches who can't use magic get exiled to the human world.
* Being a witch in ''Manga/SoulEater'' it not something a person chooses: this is indicated by the fact that at least one is a small child with no parents to teach her magic and that certain witch characters appear to have no desire to be part of the witch culture, but in both cases, these still count as 'witches' and [[OurSoulsAreDifferent their souls are different from a regular human]]. However, it's not specified if witches are the result of SuperpowerfulGenetics, being RandomlyGifted, or both. At the very least, Medusa and Crona show witches are capable of having non-witch children, but [[AmbiguousGender we don't know]] if this is because of random chance or a GenderRestrictedAbility.

Vampires are perhaps second only to Liches out of undead creatures in terms of their inherent magical prowess.

* ''FanFic/ThePalaververse'': Most, although not all, of the intelligent races have a subspecies capable of harnessing magic in a more direct, spellcasting fashion than the rest of their kin -- the ponies have unicorns, the caprids ibexes, the sheep black sheep, the cattle longhorns, the corvids ravens and the elephants forest elephants. There are also subspecies that can use less "flashy" forms of magic: takin goats can use runic magic and enchant objects, while rooks posses oracular abilities.

* ''Literature/TheMortalInstruments'' has the warlocks. They are [[HalfHumanHybrid the children of demons and humans]], usualy [[HumanMomNonHumanDad the children of a male demon and a female human]]. However, they are very seldom begotten out of love, the demons mostly raped the human. Warlocks look almost like humans, but they have characteristics [[MarkOfTheSupernatural of their demonic origin]], such as horns or claws. Warlocks often gets orders from shadowhunters and downworldlers to use their magic. They are also immortal, but can not get children by natural means.
** There are also warlocks who can use no or very little magic. They are called ifrits.
** Tessa Gray is a special case. She is a hybrid of shadowhunters and warlocks, so she has no demonic features on her body, and can get children.
** The [[TheFairFolk fairies]] are hybrids of angels and demons, and can also use magic. However, their magic differs fundamentally from the magic of warlocks.
** Apparently, shadowhunters can also use magic to some extent, because Valentin was very experienced in the use of black magic.
