** More directly and on the evil side, there's Snowman, a member of the Felt whose life is tied to the life of the universe. [[spoiler: It's actually ''her heart''.]] She mostly uses this to mess with Spades Slick without him being able to fight back. [[spoiler: Eventually he does shoot her, destroying their universe.]]

** Tiki from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia'' is an immensely powerful Manakete put into an enchanted sleep, for fear that she'll destroy the world by mistake. For a time, she's BrainwashedAndCrazy to work for the Dark Dragon.
** In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Genealogy of the Holy War]]'' we have Deirdre in the first generation, Julia and Julius in the second. [[spoiler:They're Deirdre's children by Arvis]]. Deirdre had been forbidden to meet any men for fear it would cause a catastrophe. [[spoiler:This is because she carries the blood of the dark god Loptyr, and if any child with major Loptyr blood is born they could serve as a vessel for his return--which is exactly what happens to Julius. Good thing that Julia was born with the Holy Blood needed to ''counteract'' that too.]].

* Oddly enough, ''{{Jesus}}'' according to Christian belief. His Second Coming in the Literature/BookOfRevelation foretells TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. [[SubvertedTrope However]], it's ultimately TheAntiChrist (who isn't in Revelation but is assumed by many to be a figure seen in that text, the Beast from the Sea) who brings about the End of Days.

When TheHero is in charge of preventing TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, imagine his surprise, when he finds out the threat comes not from some EvilOverlord, but from one of his [[TrueCompanions friends or family]] destined to bring about the end of the world. The reasons for this can vary.

* ''SonicX'': [[spoiler:Cosmo]] turns out [[spoiler: to have been implanted with an audio and visual tracking device allowing the BigBad to see every single move she makes, thus leading them right to the good guys the whole time, basically dooming their every effort. [[TheWoobie Cosmo angsts about this considerably]], [[WellIntentionedExtremist Shadow]] just outright wants to kill her and even just removing the transmitter would blind and deafen her permanently, and everyone else rallies to her side deciding to [[TakeAThirdOption defeat the Big Bad]] even ''with'' the transmitter]]. [[spoiler: She still dies, in an HeroicSacrifice]]

* The [[BecauseDestinySaysSo Score]] in ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' has [[spoiler: Luke fon Fabre]] ultimately be this. The prophesied [[spoiler: destruction of Akzeriuth]] is supposed to kick off a series of events that results in TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. The plot kicked off because [[spoiler: Van]] decided to make the world end on ''his'' terms and thus [[spoiler: created the replica of the original Luke fon Fabre to take the original's place.]] This instead ends up kicking off events that result in ''preventing'' the end of the world and the choice to ScrewDestiny by the main party.

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' plays with this. [[spoiler: To Sylvarant, Colette is [[TheMessiah Messianic]] BarrierMaiden. But to Tethe'alla she is this trope.]] Finding that out is what makes the main party decide to ScrewDestiny and TakeAThirdOption. Helps that the BigBad is behind the whole corrupt system.
