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.
