* In GuildedAge, Payet Best fulfills almost all the requirements of a prophecy made by a mad woman in the town and is declared the "Epic Hero". The real Epic Hero (who fulfills the one requirement Payet missed) shows up after a few days, but the mad woman has a heart attack right after due to the strain of shouting "THE PROPHECY!" over and over.

* Harrison the Shark of ''{{Nedroid}}'' constantly pines away to be swept up in some big heroic adventure like Beartato and Reginald often are. He's offered several chances practically on a silver platter, but turns his nose up at all of them until recently. Then he comes across Beartato[[note]]Well, actually just a Beartato {{doppelganger}}[[/note]] and Reginald, who ''fell'' into the same thing he was chosen to do.

* ''CaptainSNES'' suggests that Ryan was originally supposed to be the Game Master, but Alex ([[http://www.captainsnes.com/?date=20021226 "Second best Captain SNES"]]) ended up filling the role instead. The reasons why are not entirely clear, but it's fairly clear that the certified perfectly ordinary cat was somehow involved.

What? TheHero was actually just an InnocentBystander [[RightManInTheWrongPlace in the "wrong" place at the "wrong" time]]? The ''real'' chosen one MissedTheCall? Those who JumpedAtTheCall suddenly feel jealous and cheated, robbed of their right to [[InHarmsWay enjoy the adventure]]. Those who [[IJustWantToBeNormal just want to be normal]] feel even more cheated -- What do you mean I never actually ''had'' to give up [[HomeSweetHome my normal, happy life]] for this?! And those who personally learned that TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive . . . [[BigNo What the hell, Destiny!?]] Gimme back my DoomedHometown!
