* Michael Rhodes in ''ComicBook/{{Birthright}}'' is supposedly fated to destroy [[EvilOverlord God-King Lore]] and free the world of Terrenos from his tyranny. The pressure of a duty that he never chose in the first place, the resentment of being taken from his home (which also lead to his family being split apart) and the horrors of the war ultimately push him to [[spoiler: perform a FaceHeelTurn, [[DealWithTheDevil side with Lore]] and betray his comrades just to return to Earth]]. Making things worse is that [[spoiler: he isn't the first, implying that he's entirely expendable as the Chosen One.]]

The prophecy was referring to ''Lore'', who had already saved Terrenos in the past and became a villain later. Making all the crap Mikey went through even more pointless.]]

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV''. Being born into the line of the Kings of Lucis is a pretty sweet gig on the surface; access to immense magical power, wealth, and an arsenal of mystical weapons you can summon from [[HammerSpace thin air]]. The catch? All of the king's powers are [[CastFromLifeSpan Cast from Life Span]], with the power they extend to their subjects drawing on that same finite source. Upon death, the king's soul is bound up within the Ring of the Lucii in a sort of limbo world to lend power to the kings to follow, with only the souls of other deceased kings for company. The situation worsens with the protagonist's father, who has to maintain a magical barrier around his whole city to keep monsters at bay (exacerbating the whole Cast from Life Span deal). The protagonist himself, essentially the Chosen One of the Chosen Ones, [[spoiler: gets to live about twenty years before being locked in crystal stasis for a decade, and once free, he gets roughly another night or two before he has to endure a brutal [[HeroicSacrifice Heroic Sacrifice]] to save the world from eternal darkness]]. Heavy hangs the head that wears the crown indeed.

* In Literature/WarriorCats, [=StarClan=] might tell you you can't have a mate or kits, or maybe the magical powers you have alienate cats around you, maybe you don't get to be a warrior at all, maybe all the cats you love will die, but regardless, it tends to suck.

* Mocked in [[https://derpiboo.ru/1033437 these]] [[https://derpiboo.ru/1034146 three]] [[https://derpiboo.ru/1036276 images]] by ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fan artist [[https://derpiboo.ru/tags/artist-colon-badumsquish Badumquish]] where Trixie is surprised that Twilight Sparkle not only doesn't get paid for being the Princess of Friendship, but also doesn't even get health or dental coverage (among ''other'' things). She goes on to [[InnocentlyInsensitive rub it in even further]] when she points out that she makes more ''and'' has better health care as a traveling magician. Cue epic DeathGlare from Twilight.

* ''ComicBook/DoctorStrange'' is the Sorcerer Supreme, and as such one of the single most powerful humans in existence. Unfortunately this pits him against many [[EldritchAbomination]] even ''more'' powerful than he is, and malevolent in the extreme.

* ''ComicBook/TheGreatPowerOfChninkel'': Invoked again and again throughout the story. J'on considers himself unfit for the role bestowed on him by God, has to travel half the world and nearly gets killed multiple times to fulfill his destiny, cannot consummate his love for his female companion G'wen, and [[spoiler:is eventually executed by his own people. Even worse, the Almighty Creator saw him fit to die only so that it could attain eternal worship for itself.]]

* Chikane of ''KannazukiNoMiko'' was tired of her and her beloved being caught in a continual reincarnation loop, so she decided to subvert it and set up a BatmanGambit to make sure it never happens again. Sure, they get reincarnated again, but it's not as bad as before in ''Anime/ShatteredAngels''.
