Sadly, because YouCantFightFate these attempts to prevent the cataclysm may become [[SelfFulfillingProphecy self-fulfilling]] because PropheciesAreAlwaysRight (in such a case, it's a DownerEnding). Optimistically, their friend's efforts and ThePowerOfTrust may embolden them to become an AntiAntiChrist and successfully rebel against their destiny... even if it requires [[HeroicSacrifice the ultimate sacrifice]].

This is more of a plot than a character (it could be either). Much like BarrierMaiden, this trope is open to both genders. See also/contrast BigBadFriend, SaveThisPersonSaveTheWorld and BarrierMaiden.[[note]]That tropes is basically the inversion of this. The Barrier Maiden's purpose is to ''sustain'' the world while the Apocalypse Maiden's purpose is to ''destroy'' it.[[/note]] May well become an AntiAntiChrist.

AntiAntichrist.



* In ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'', it turns out that [[spoiler: Yuya, Yugo and Yuto]] cross this trope with AntiAntiChrist. These characters were ''supposed'' to become violent, dangerous duelists who wanted only destruction, but all turned out to be decent people. Thus, the person who set them up as [[AntiChrist Anti Christs]] in the first place has begun forcing them to carry out his apocalypse plan [[spoiler: [[SuperpoweredEvilSide via possession.]]]] [[spoiler: The fourth counterpart, Yuri, is a straight AntiChrist, and if he manages to [[YourSoulIsMine absorb the other three]] [[AGodAmI he'll become a god]] [[ApocalypseHow and destroy the multiverse.]]]] As long as these characters exist, it's only a matter of time before the apocalypse gets kicked off.

* In ''VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction'', Kyrie can't control his powers; when that [[HearingVoices pesky voice starts talking]], his body acts of its own accord and obliterates everything around him. It's later revealed this is because he was born specifically to bring about the end of the world, as [[TheMaker the Creator]] feels it's too broken to allow to continue. [[AntiAntiChrist He's not happy about this, and desperately searches for a way to]] ScrewDestiny. [[spoiler:When he decides he's too much of a danger to continue living, he asks Naja to kill him. Unfortunately, ''that'' doesn't work, either, as the Destruct has backup methods of resurrection.]]

* On ''Series/PennyDreadful'', Vanessa Ives' supernatural abilities make her the target of various evil entities that believe her to be the reincarnation of the [[EgyptianMythology goddess Amunet]], the "Mother of Evil", whom they can use to start the apocalypse. Season 2 expands on this, revealing that when Lucifer was cast down to Hell, another FallenAngel was cast down to Earth, becoming [[MonsterProgenitor the first vampire]]; these two have [[EvilVersusEvil been in competition with each other]] ever since to find Amunet, as her power will allow the one who possesses her to break free of their imprisonment and seize control of Heaven from God, plunging the world into darkness.

* [[spoiler:Elizabeth]] in ''VideoGame/BioshockInfinite'' was to be made into this by [[spoiler:Comstock]] through brutal emotional and physical torture. [[spoiler:Comstock planned to make Elizabeth his heir so that she may reenact his version of the Final Judgment and rain fire upon the "Sodom below". However, the Elizabeth who does accomplish this brings Booker to him timeline to give her a chance to stop all of that from happening.]]

* ''Series/StargateSG1'' had this as well. When Hanka is wiped out by Nirrti, the team finds a sole survivor: a little girl by the name of Cassandra. Later it turns out that [[WhyAmITicking her body contains a globule of naquadah that has attracted all the potassium in her body]] and can cause cardiac arrest if someone attempts to remove it. Why is that a problem? Stargates contain over 29 tons of Naquadah. Naquadah reacts to potassium violently. And I mean [[NukeEm VERY]] violently.

* In ''VideoGame/FairyFencerF'', anyone who is a descendant of the Vile God (in other words, either Tiara or Bernard) could be used as a sacrifice to revive him. Bernard insists that a woman's blood must be used to awaken him, but in the Goddess timeline he tries to usurp the Vile God's power; in response, it kills him and uses him as its sacrifice.

* In ''Film/TheSeventhSign'' Abby discovers that her child is destined to be born without a soul as the Chamber of Gauf is empty. When she gives birth it will trigger the End Days, [[spoiler:but she ultimately averts this by sacrificing her own life to refill the Chamber]].

* In the universe of ''Fanfic/TheBridge'', it turns out the Alicorns are this in a sense: [[spoiler: [[GodOfEvil Grogar]] was imprisoned by [[GodOfGood Harmony]] and while she naturally is not going to willingly release him, Alicorn Magic will work just as well to break his seal and other than Harmony seems to be the only thing that can.]]

Given Grogar one of the [[PhysicalGod three most powerful beings]] in the entire story (matched only by Harmony and [[BigBad Bagan]]), this would be ''very'' bad. Especially if, as shown in Empress Flurry Heart's BadFuture, [[EvilVsEvil he and Bagan go to war with one another]] as Chrysalis predicts they will.]]

* ''Anime/DigimonUniverseApplimonsters'' has a male example, Yuujin Oozora, or YJ-14, for being both [[TheHero The Hero's]] [[HoYay most treasured friend,]] and the [[BigBad Big Bad's]] creation that is made to serve his goal, resetting and controlling the world by turning all humanity into data. Not that he's willing to do those, of course. As a programmed android, he just can't resist his creator's wish that wants to gain control of him back, after long enough letting the main character has him as a friend. [[spoiler: While he does complete his job as ApocalypseMaiden, TheHero still wants to bring him back and restore the world. TheHero's determination interests the BigBad, and which then gives him a chance, by going through SadisticChoice.]]
