* Most of the Origin stories in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' allow the player character to either drag his/her feet and try to reject recruitment by the Grey Wardens, or eagerly badger authority figures to be allowed to join.

* UsefulNotes/CharlesDarwin jumped at the call when he took the post as the ship's naturalist on board the ''HMS Beagle'', a move which eventually resulted in the development and publication of his revolutionary Theory of Natural Selection. (Although he was reluctant to publish his evolutionary theories, when his friends called him to do so, predicting how the world at large would react.)

* Monkey D. Luffy from ''OnePiece''. Can you picture him wanting to be anything but a pirate?

* Monkey D. Luffy from ''OnePiece''.''Manga/OnePiece''. Can you picture him wanting to be anything but a pirate?



** Interestingly, a early short story that would later evolve into ''OnePiece'' exists. After eating the Devil Fruit and losing the ability to swim, he tells his grandfather (who owned the fruit) he's fine with it since he doesn't want to become a pirate anyway. However, at the end of the story his cool slips and he admits he's devastated since he wants to become a pirate more than anything. (As this doesn't match Luffy's backstory in the series, this cannot be considered canon.)

* Steve Rogers in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' was very eager to answer the call, despite being put on hold multiple times due to his poor health. When offered the chance, he jumps at it with all his might and does everything he can to make sure he uses his powers for good. This logic also extends to his friends, who are only too happy to follow him into battle even after just escaping near-certain death.
* This is part of the reason why the ''Film/IronMan'' films have been so successful. In contrast to heroes like Spider-Man and Batman, Tony Stark is a man who seems to genuinely enjoy being a hero and makes the most of his talents. It's refreshing to see a film where being a superhero actually looks fun and not like a chore.

* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', the Doctor didn't jump at the call; he stole a TARDIS and went looking for it.
** In terms of the Doctor's companions, this serves as a distinction between the old and the new series. Becoming a companion in the old series is much less voluntary, a moment of [[CuriousAsAMonkey what's in that box]] and sometimes continues under some duress. In the current series, the Doctor seems to choose his companions based on this trope. The more reluctant ones (such as Mickey and Rory) have to work a bit harder for him to take them seriously.
** Jenny, the Doctor's daughter / OppositeSexClone from series 4, follows in her Dad's footsteps [[spoiler: after recovering from a DisneyDeath]], stealing a spaceship and flying off in search of adventure.

* Not only does Jeremy of ''{{Literature/Abominable}}'' jump at the call when his aunt and uncle offer to teach him how to become TheHunter, he's prepared to sneak out of his house ''to another state'' with them if his parents try and stop him.

* This is a recurring characteristic of many of the heroes in the Series/Arrowverse. Barry Allen didn't take a whole lot of convincing to become The Flash, Wally West went looking for power to be a hero, Jesse Wells apparently took about 5 seconds to decide she was going to be a hero when she discovered her speed, Ray Palmer made a super-suit to become a superhero, Nate Heywood took to having superpowers like a fish to water, and Kara Danvers took to the air to perform a rescue and decided to finally be a superhero then and there.
