* In ''TenchiInTokyo'', Tenchi's the latest line of protectors of the Earth (instead of the long-lost prince of Jurai that he is in other canons focusing on him) and [[TakeUpMySword is given a]] TransformationTrinket in the form of seven jewels that turn into a {{BFS}}. Instead, he'd rather be a normal teenager and gives away one of the jewels to the six alien girls. This turns out to be crucial in BigBad Yuugi's plans.

* In ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', Danny often tries to Refuse the Call. This never works well, with the result being either just a mundane ghost attack to creating horrific alternate futures where the world is destroyed. One particular example is the episode 'Memory Blank' where a powerless Danny with no memories is forced to answer the call anyway.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''FanFic/{{Eternity}}'', the shipgirl Yonaga, formerly Enterprise, doesn't answer the initial call to battle against the Abyssals. It is partly out of giving the returned Imperial shipgirls the chance to prove and redeem themselves, and partly out of fear that she will regress to her Pacific War-self of near permanent RoaringRampageOfRevenge (which also alianated her to nearly all US ships at the time) and kill the japanese shipgirls.
