--> '''King Stannis''':''Lord Seaworth is a man of humble birth, but he reminded me of my duty, when all I could think of was my rights. I had the cart before the horse, Davos said. I was trying to win the throne to save the kingdom, when I should have been trying to save the kingdom to win the throne.''

** The second season has Hayate, who upon learning that she is TheChosenOne, responded with what could be summed as "Sure, why not?" She was pretty content with her life, despite being a crippled girl who lives alone, and wished noting more from the Book of Darkness, only expressing happiness for it has provided her with people she can call family. After the Book of Darkness incident, she realized that she has been given an opportunity to help people in a greater way, by joining the military and keeping the universe safe from similar incidents that happened around her and as the current master of the book, feels she should share the responsibility with her guardians.

* ''Film/{{Purgatory}}'': The townspeople decide to take up arms even though (they think) it'll mean going to hell.
--> '''Wild Bill:''' What do you think you're doing?
--> '''UsefulNotes/BillyTheKid:''' Down the hole's down the hole. Might as well have some fun on the way.

* Though he has occasional gung-ho moments, this is Eric's general attitude in ''Webcomic/CogaNito''. Unless something particularly significant is riding on the outcome, he'd really rather just go home, thanks very much.

* Pretty much everyone in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' doesn't really care about the game. Of course given that they had no choice in the matter, it's pretty much a huge case of YouCantFightFate

* A lot of the characters in ''{{Bionicle}}'' who became Toa were at first, eh, reluctant. [[AllIsWellThatEndsWell But most of them eventually got into the right mood]].

->'''Rincewind:''' Oh, but they will, sir. And then I'll run away, and probably hide in a crate somewhere [[TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive that'll be loaded onto the flying machine in any case]]... Or there'll be a whole string of accidents that end up causing the same thing. Trust me, sir. [[GenreSavvy I know how my life works.]]

* (Bel)Garion, the main Chosen One of David Eddings' ''{{Belgariad}}'' is Resigned To The Call; he spends roughly 4 1/2 of the five books asking "Why ''me''?".

* In ''KingdomKeepers'', the [[FiveManBand keepers]] aren't to enthusiastic about their new mission, especially [[TheLancer Maybeck]] and [[TheBigGuy Charlene]]. However, since they cross over every time they fall asleep, there's little they can do except go with it.
* Aislinn in the ''WickedLovely'' series. She realizes that she has no choice about being a faery, but she makes clear that she will only do it on her own terms.

* Ned Stark in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. He doesn't want to be the King's Hand, even for his best friend King Robert, but sees he has no choice in matter, partly because he [[HonourBeforeReason can't disobey a command from his King]] and partly because he realises his friend is trapped in a DeadlyDecadentCourt and needs his help.
** Similarly, Stannis Baratheon doesn't really want to [[spoiler:succeed Robert as king]]. However, it's his duty to do it and thus he will, [[spoiler:even if it means rebelling against Joffrey and fighting the Lannisters, Starks, ''and'' most of his own bannermen, having the smallest army at the start]]. [[spoiler:After losing most of his troops, he contemplates burning a nephew of his to gain magical aid. However his conversations with Davos show how conflicted he is, but that he considers it his duty to take the throne, for the realm, for his daughter, and even the brother he didn't like, knowing Robert's wife murdered him so her family could usurp the throne. Ultimately, Davos reminds him of his higher duty as a King, to protect the realm and have him come and rescue the Night's Watch:]]

** The third season has this trope as a small plot point. The now adult protagonists rescue a small 6 year old girl named Vivio from the season's BigBad and his minions. Nanoha decides to look after her in the meantime until Vivio can be safely given to a caring foster family, and she develops a bond with Vivio upon regular interaction with her. When asked why Nanoha doesn't just adopt Vivio as her daughter, she mentions that she's reluctant in raising her as her child given that her work sometimes puts her in dangerous situations, citing an experience she had that almost ended her career. By the end of the anime, Nanoha has official adopted Vivio as her daughter and is perfectly happy with the relationship.
