* It's possible to avert ButThouMust in the beginning of ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'' by refusing to go after the Pure Hearts. All this does, though, is get you a NonStandardGameOver.

* Brenish in ''Literature/{{Below}}'' has longed to see the [[DungeonCrawling underground ruins]] all his life, even planning out what he would do if he ever went in search of treasure. A fake treasure map lands in his lap, giving him the chance to realize his (expensive) plan by bringing investors on board. Instead he gives up his dream, and chooses to get an honest job over the winter so he can save up to marry Cirawyn. He just has OneLastJob as a highwayman to do first, and that's where it goes pear-shaped.

* Kouji Kabuto JumpedAtTheCall in the original ''Anime/MazingerZ''. In the first timeline seen in ''ShinMazingerZero'', he refused the call and we got to see the outcome. It was not pretty (unless your definition of pretty includes the planet scorched away and humanity wiped out [[spoiler:by Mazinger-Z]]).

* The two part OriginsEpisode of ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' revealed that after messing up her first outing as Ladybug, Marinette, already reluctant about accepting the Call, tried to quit and secretly pass on the [[TransformationTrinket Ladybug Miraculous]] to her friend, Alya. Circumstances and a [[YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre pep talk]] from Cat Noir later cause her to reconsider and take up the mantle again.

* ''Film/{{Dogma}}'' takes this and runs the whole nine yards. Bethany doesn't take her job in trying to stop Loki and Bartleby from getting back into Heaven seriously, despite being told by Metatron and meeting "prophets" JayAndSilentBob, the 13th Apostle Rufus and the muse Serendipity. It isn't until they meet the two and Rufus reveals that [[spoiler:she's a descendant of Jesus Christ]] that Bethany outright walks off from the group and begins ranting and raving as to why she's suddenly being thrust into all of this. Metatron shows up again to comfort her and even says that Jesus Himself pulled this when he found out about his heritage (it's hinted that he went into a HeroicBSOD when he found out, explaining the large time gap in Literature/TheBible.)
