* ''BaldursGate II: Throne of Bhaal'' reveals that the prophecy about the Bhaalspawn bringing great destruction was actually an either-or condition: Either the PlayerCharacter will succeed, ''or'' the destruction will take place. (That is to say, even more destruction. Apparently the prophet specified some high level of destruction that would be even worse than what did happen in the games and potentially could happen because of what the PlayerCharacter could do after them.)

* Almost all important prophecies in TerryGoodkind's ''SwordOfTruth'' series of novels are of this type. The fourth book puts a twist on this, as both possible fates seem to require the hero's death...

** Min's viewing of Siuan Sanche and Gareth Bryne said that "You must stay close to each other or you will both die." [[spoiler: They end up saving each others lives after an assassin carrying a poisoned needle attacks them (Gareth kills the assassin and Siuan heals him from the poison). Later, during Tarmon Gai'don, they are separated, and just after Min reveals that the viewing is still in effect, Siuan is killed in an attack. The effect of the warder bond makes Gareth go berserk and get killed.]]
** The various viewings of the future beyond the Last Battle, including Min's, qualify as well. They're accurate readings of The Pattern that shapes the past and future. However if the Big Bad wins The Pattern itself will be destroyed, rendering the viewings false.
