* Many [=RPGs=] rulebooks include a short (under 100 scenes) example of this trope, where the reader uses the game system (and a pre-generated character) as the randomizing element, as a way of teaching the rules and RPG concepts. For example ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'', ''TabletopGame/{{Champions}}'', ''TabletopGame/TeenagersFromOuterSpace''...

* A few relatively obscure CD-based interactive movies were this, called "Choose your own nightmare". There is ''no'' shortage of NightmareFuel in them, being adapted from the books of the same name. Humorously, [[HeyItsThatVoice you can hear Mithos Yggdrasil and possibly Spinelli]] in a few.

* ''VideoGame/{{Firewatch}}'' focuses a lot on this trope. The choices can lead to several branching paths in the game. Some of the choices affect TheProotagonist's relationship with another ranger.

* ''Literature/NintendoAdventureBooks'', released by Creator/{{Nintendo}}, which were essentially Choose-Your-Own-Adventure books starring either [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link]] or [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario and/or Luigi]]. Unlike many examples of this trope, in each book there was [[GoldenEnding ''only'' one good ending]], with the bad endings having "GAME OVER!" written at the end. Also, when ''[[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2 Super Mario Advance]]'' was first released, a Choose Your Own Adventure book that corresponded with the game's events was released by Scholastic. Each of the four characters went through one of the various worlds on their own and came together to fight [[BigBad Wart]], and at the same time, it was something of a guide for advice. Following it were ones for ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames'' and ''VideoGame/WarioLand 4''.

* In ''VisualNovel/MyHaremHeavenIsYandereHell'', the reader has two/three choices for each situation. The choices will determine who Yuuya gets and what his ultimate fate will be.
* ''VisualNovel/YandereILoveYouSoIWantToKillYou'' goes this ways as well. There are only two choices available for the whole novel and they point to ten different endings.

* ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' had a series at the height of his phenomenal popularity in the UK, written by the authors of the novel series but not belonging to that continuity. One was an AdaptationExpansion of the second [[SegaGenesis Mega Drive]] game, in which Robotnik has built Metal Sonic to rampage around and destroy the real Sonic's reputation (any similarity to the plot of the nineteenth ''Literature/LoneWolf'' book ''Wolf's Bane'', published the previous year, is entirely coincidental -- the book, and sometimes Metal Sonic himself, still have the nickname "Hedgehog's Bane" in some circles) and Sonic has to hunt him down through the game's levels.
