* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Oscar [[IJustWantToBeSpecial longs for more]] to life than being a farm-boy on an isolated farm. He initially doesn't know it, but he is born special; in a world where being unique is worth dying for, he mysteriously has an identical Aura and Soul to those of the extremely enigmatic [[BigGood Professor Ozpin]]. [[spoiler:Ozpin has a responsibility to protect four dangerous, divine Relics from destroying humanity; his ArchNemesis, Salem, destroys Beacon Academy in Volume 3, leaving the world thinking Ozpin is dead. However, Ozpin is secretly a [[BodySurf body-surfer]] who merges with special hosts that have his identical Aura and Soul instead of dying. It's implied that Ozpin cannot choose to body-surf when Oscar becomes the new host after the fall of Beacon much to the dismay of both of them. Oscar spends Volume 4 trying to deny Ozpin's existence and [[RefusalOfTheCall refuse the responsibility]] for protecting the world that has now been dumped on his shoulders.]]

*In ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' the Crippled God is searching for a champion and outfits Karsa Orlong, whom he has chosen for the role with spiritual advisors and some nifty weaponry for his role. But, while Karsa has no problem with going on adventures and [[RapePillageAndBurn raping and pillaging]] and whatnot, he really resents doing it on the Crippled God's orders and even actively works against him.

* [[http://nodwick.humor.gamespy.com/gamespyarchive/index.php?date=2004-01-22 This]] ''{{Nodwick}}'' strip really says it all. Yeagar is prone to this sort of behaviour if there's no profit (or attractive ladies) involved.

* During Franchise/{{Superman}} story ''Comicbook/KryptoniteNevermore'', Superman loses most of his power and wants to quit being Superman because he is sick and tired of being alone, being burdened with responsibilities and being judged and derided every time he makes one mistake. However a friend talks him out ot it.
-->'''I-Ching:''' Your attitude is understandable! But I beg you to reconsider... one does not choose responsibility! It is often thrust upon one! To refuse it is to commit the worst act of cowardice! Look around you... See a world burdened with misery... with untold agonies a world which has need of you as you were!

* A humorous example in an old issue of ''Comicbook/{{Thunderstrike}}'': Comicbook/{{Loki}} is up to his usual tricks, and the situation escalates to the point where Thunderstrike, Comicbook/WarMachine, Comicbook/SheHulk, and Comicbook/AntMan (Scott Lang) end up banding together to stop him. The issue was a WholePlotReference to the first issue of ''Comicbook/TheAvengers'', with each of the heroes standing in for one of the original members (War Machine for Comicbook/IronMan, She-Hulk for [[Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk The Hulk]], Thunderstrike for [[TheMightyThor Thor]], and Scott Lang for the original Ant-Man), and even ended with Ant-Man suggesting that they could stay together and form a new team of heroes. However, they humorously said no and went their separate ways.

It remains to be seen if she'll change her mind now that the two have revealed themselves to each other.
