* Zigzagged in ''SuperPaperMario''; both the Light and Dark Prognosticus tell the tale of the end of the world and the heroes who would challenge it, but Merlon openly states that the Light Prognosticus was only written to counteract the Dark one, and isn't actually prophetic. Though the game is very confusing on this point; the characters all act as though the Light Prognosticus is just as valid and consult it for advice, and [[spoiler: in the end, it is the one that ends up fulfilled]].

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', you are the Nerevarine, a man/woman who has been [[TheChosenOne chosen]] as the one who might bring the evil [[AGodAmI Dagoth]] [[MeaningfulName Ur]]. Or at least, [[WideOpenSandbox that's what the prophecy tells you to do]]. More to the point, you can screw the prophecy and do it in ways the prophecy didn't mean/didn't foresee. Also, there is another prophecy going on when you play the second expansion. And there and loads and loads of mods to add more complexity.
** Though the second expansion's prophecy doesn't actually have you be TheChosenOne -- or for that matter ''have'' a chosen one. Ultimately, it is all about finding the most badass people on the island which you for entirely non-prophecy related reasons are visiting, and then [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame having a hunt]]. You just happen to be one of the most badass people around this time (it is stated to be a recurring event), and so get dragged into the end-game.

** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', having the ''Dawnguard'' DLC installed causes there to be two prophecies running at once. The first is the prophecy of the Last Dragonborn, while the second is the prophecy of the end of the Tyranny of the Sun. The Tyranny of the Sun prophecy specifically states that it will take place at the time when the dragons return, meaning that both prophecies are going to be fulfilled/thwarted at the same time. The Last Dragonborn getting involving in the second prophecy wasn't mentioned, but under the circumstances, it was kind of inevitable.

* Behind the scenes of ''ASongOfIceAndFire'' are several prophecies which run the plot (and are subject to a ''lot'' of Wild Mass Guessing). The biggest ones are the Azor Ahai prophecy and the Prince That Was Promised prophecy. Fandom has either Dany or Jon be one or both of these.

* In ''LegacyOfKain'', two separate prophecies make reference to two champions, one representing the vampires and the other representing the hylden, but one claims that the vampire champion will destroy the hylden champion, and the other claims the reverse. It turns out that [[spoiler:there is only one champion - Raziel meets the requirements to be the champion of both races, and when he consents to a HeroicSacrifice by allowing himself to be killed by Kain, both prophecies are fulfilled simultaneously]].

* In ''Literature/TheWheelofTime''. [[FirstEpisodeSpoiler Rand al’Thor is the Dragon Reborn]] who must follow the (fragmented) Prophecies of the Dragon. He is also the Dragon Reborn to the Seanchan who follow a different version of the prophecy, the Car’a’carn who will [[DestructiveSaviour lead and destroy and save]] the Aiel people, and the Coramoor to the Sea Folk. In addition, his actions (and even his birth) tie in to various Aes Sedai Foretellings and he manages to fulfil other prophecies such as the ‘end of the time of illusions’ for people on Tremalking.

* FirstWave: Nostradamus and an Gua sage had both made prophecies about how to stop BigBad Mabus...they disagreed on whether or not Cade Foster should shoot him, however. According to the Gua prophet doing so would stop the invasion, according to Nostradamus it would jump-start it. [[spoiler: Nostadamus was right.]]

* ''Theatre/{{Starmites}}'': Aragala created ''a lot'' of prophecies.
** The two most repeated are:
*** When Milady returns from the world of men, then the Cruelty shall be found again.
*** When Bizarbara's wedding vows are sealed, then shall the Cruelty be revealed.
** It gets to the point where characters have to ask each other which prophecy they are talking about at the time.
