Jon's also got the trappings of the Starks and the general First Men aesthetic, which is itself also been shown as something unique and powerful.

The Valyrians have a lot of parallels with Elves, and there's clearly something at play with the magic connected to that, but at least within the books and related material GRRM has been shedding the Targaryen dynasty of their legend. For every Targ that's special there's two or three that are mundane screw ups.
