* ''Videogame/DragonAgeOrigins'' casts you as a Grey Warden. A member of a rather secretive order dedicated to stopping the rampaging Darkspawn at any cost. Unfortunately, all but one of your fellow Wardens are dead or too far off to be of any help, the Regent wants your head and everybody else has decided now is the time to start fighting amongst each other. Nevertheless, your job is to unite them and put down the Darkspawn for good. Good luck!

** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', which takes place about a dozen years later, you're known as the Herald of Andraste, the only survivor of a cataclysmic event and the only one who has even the slightest chance of fixing the giant hole said event left in the sky. Half the continent praises you as a savior and the other half thinks you're a murderer who ''caused'' the event in question. But much like with the Warden, your job is to save everybody. Once again, good luck!

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', the player is the Dragonborn, which is super handy since the Dragons have started reappearing and only a Dragonborn really stands a chance of defeating them and saving the world.
** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' did something similar, with the player character in question being the Nerevarine, the reincarnation of one of Morrowind's greatest warriors, Indoril Nerevar, and the focus of an ancient prophecy.

* ''AngelicLayer'': The series is centered around a game where players control fighting dolls called "Angels". The game's term for a player is "Deus". The early episodes play up the "initiation" angle in fine detail, with Icchan taking Misaki to buy a starter set, and Misaki going through the Angel-creation process upon arriving at her new home.

* All ''{{Evony}}'' players have the title "Lord" to fit with the game's feudalistic objective of conquering and developing cities, and because of [[LadyNotAppearingInThisGame the ad campaign]].
* In the ''KingdomOfLoathing'', AnAdventurerIsYou!

* The original ''{{Starcraft}}'' single player campaign would call the player Magistrate, Cerebrate or Praetor depending on which race's storyline you were playing through.
* In ''WarcraftII'', completing a campaign level gave you ever-increasing ranks (peon, peasant, grunt, warchief...) after every mission... unless you cheated, in which case it would only call you a cheater.
* Capsuleers from ''EVEOnline''.
* ''LeagueOfLegends'' calls the Player a Summoner.

* ''Videogame/DungeonCrawl'' gives the player a title based on the level of player's highest skill. The game goes as far to having different titles for different gods (if the player's Invocation skill is their highest), and if the player's highest skill is Unarmed Combat, it even differs between higher Strength (Grappler and the like) and Dexterity (Black Belt and the like). All these combinations mean that there are way over ''two hundred'' different titles possible.
