* ''Manga/FushigiYuugi''. If you're the priestess, sure everyone bows down to you, you get to make any wishes you want, and you have a harem of bishounen at your beck and call. But, you have to use your wishes for the good of others (not yourself, with the possible exception of a wish to get home safely). Everyone expects you to know what you're doing, when you don't. You can't have sex or even a relationship with any member of your bishie harem as long as you're the priestess (because SexIsEvil and will [[CaptainObvious destroy]] your VirginPower, and LoveMakesYouStupid, or at least distracted and biased.) And worst of all, you are a VirginSacrifice to be FedToTheBeast; the very god who grants your wishes [[AndIMustScream will devour your soul]] unless you can pass the SecretTestOfCharacter. Only the most GenreSavvy should even ''attempt'' this role!

** ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'' sees Milla Maxwell, the Lord of Spirits, focus on her mission to destroy a tyrannical king and his doomsday device. [[spoiler:Except being a {{Determinator}} gets her crippled, and later killed, by her staunch refusal to abandon her goal. And then it turns out she's not really the Lord of Spirits after all, just conditioned to believe she was. And that tyrant of a king? He's an AntiVillain who only wanted to protect his kingdom from people seeking to usurp it. Finally, at the very end of the game, she does get to become the true Lord of Spirits, at the cost of having to leave behind everyone in the human world she's grown to care about.]]

* ''Film/{{Dogma}}''. For Bethany, being [[AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame Jesus Christ's ultimate descendant]] requires that you (a) contract a condition that leaves you barren (b) have your husband leave you (c) hang around with two [[JayAndSilentBob stoners]] who want to get into your pants, and ultimately (d) [[spoiler: become a single mom as a result of immaculate conception]].

* A lot of games in the ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' fit this trope. Even when it's played straight in that it's not ''entirely'' a bad thing, there's ''still'' a catch:

*** Ted in ''SuikodenI'' preceded everyone in the above trope. He acquires the [[{{Macguffin}} Soul Eater Rune]], is forced to runaway from the witch Windy for the next 300 years, gets his rune stolen from him [[SuikodenIV 150 years after]] he fled from his village, and commands the Soul Eater to ''[[FateWorseThanDeath eat his soul]]'' just so that he won't [[BrainwashedAndCrazy accidentally command the soul to return the Rune back to him.]]
*** Tir [=McDohl=] from ''SuikodenI'', [[spoiler:son of TheEmpire's [[FourStarBadass greatest general]], forced to run for his life from the EvilSorceress trying to steal the MacGuffin from him. In the process, he was recruited into the LaResistance and eventually became its leader... AFTER said leader DIED in front of him AFTER she has expressed that she might've liked him a lot as a friend. As you lead the Resistance to victory, your BattleButler [[YouShallNotPass died trying to protect you]], then the defeated generals pull off a MyGodWhatHaveIDone after pretty much crossing the MoralEventHorizon while under MoreThanMindControl, so you don't pretty much have a choice but to [[DefeatMeansFriendship recruit them]]. Then you will have to [[DuelToTheDeath kill your own father]] to protect your castle, and then you have to see your [[TheLancer best friend]] suffer a FateWorseThanDeath. And if you haven't recruited all OneHundredAndEight Stars of Destiny, then your BattleButler would be KilledOffForReal. Regardless of the status of his BattleButler afterwards, [[OverlyLongGag it left him so shell-shocked that he didn't even want to be there when]] TheRepublic [[OverlyLongGag was inaugurated, because he doesn't want the Soul Eater to take any more lives]]. Oh, and he had to deliberately avoid the young hot ninja chick that has been heavily crushing over him, just so she can avoid the fates of these people. If that doesn't suck, I don't know what does.]]

* From ''VideoGame/Mother3'':
** Even with there technically being Two Chosen Ones here, still applies. While Lucas isn't necessarily name-dropped as the Chosen One, [[spoiler: the fact that he's the only person (besides the Masked Man) who can use PK Love and pull the 7 Needles to awaken the dragon as was prophesied hints at it. And the Magypsies flat out point out that fact too. As such, Lucas definitely fits this trope, given all the traumatizing things that happen to him as he goes on his journey.]] Same goes for [[spoiler: The Masked Man, AKA Claus, for the same reasoning as mentioned above, him being forced to become the Masked Man and commit atrocities in the name of Porky being the worst of it.]]

* ''Literature/TheBible'': Let's see: Job is a literal CosmicPlaything, Abraham is asked to kill his own son, Moses never actually lives to see ThePromisedLand, and then there's Jesus... In fact one possible interpretation of Literature/TheBible is that the meaning of life is DiedHappilyEverAfter.
