* Creator/MercedesLackey had Diana "Di" Tregarde, a witch of astounding power and a Guardian, which apparently means even more power and the responsibility to use it to protect people. Her grandmother taught her, but after said grandmother died Di tried to stay away from all that and live without the supernatural. This didn't work out, mostly because supernatural creatures and people could still feel her potential, and trying to ignore them met that they ran into her on ''their'' terms.

* 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]]).
