* Subverted in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker''. Unlike all of the other games in the series, this game's particular Link is ''not'' the reincarnation of the Hero of Time, and as a result he is required to go and find the Triforce of Courage by himself. Played straight with the reveal that [[spoiler:Tetra is Zelda]].

* Subverted in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker''.

Subtropes include AmnesiacGod. Often the result of a ChangelingFantasy. Related to TomatoInTheMirror. If everyone ''else'' knows the truth, the hero's been LockedOutOfTheLoop.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind''. The main character, a former prisoner and a spy for the Empire, is revealed to be the [[spoiler:reincarnation of the ancient king Nerevar, destined to defeat the BigBad and the CorruptChurch]].
** Depending on your view of Azura, may be an invoked or subverted trope if she really did manipulate events to ensure [[spoiler:the Nerevarine]] could successfully carry out her plans. It is also generally ambiguous enough that when the player character is outright asked if they are [[spoiler: Nerevar reborn]] at the end of the main quest, saying you aren't is no more of a lie than saying you are -- and perhaps most true is to answer that you don't know.
* Two sequels later, in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', the Player Character eventually finds out that they are a Dragonborn; a prophesied being where a dragon soul ends up in a mortal body. Handy, since there seems to be a bit of a Dragon problem in Skyrim, and the Dragonborn is the only one who can [[DeaderThanDead permanently kill dragons]]. That, and the dragons' leader [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Alduin the World Eater]] isn't the only existential threat to the world at the time.

* A HalloweenEpisode of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueAction'' focuses on some kids dressed up as {{Batman}}, {{Zatanna}}, {{Doctor Fate}} and {{Constantine}}. After [[BullyHunter beating up some bullies]] in an unusually BadAss fashion, they're lured into the House of Mystery by [[EnfantTerrible Klarion the Witch Boy]]. There they discover that they actually ''are'' the heroes whom they're dressed as--Klarion just de-aged them and erased their memories so that they would be easier to defeat.
