** 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.]]

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.''

* Miho Nishizumi, from ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'' goes through this several times. She transfers to a new school to avoid having to take Sensha-do, but gets drafted into the sport when the Student Council demands she participate, albeit ultimately deciding to go along with it when seeing her friends, who had originally wanted to do tankery, switch their electives to stay with her and defend her decision not to do tankery. When she and her friends form tank crew, she first refuses taking the commander position, but is talked into it by the rest of the team after the first practice. Later she gets "volunteered" to take command of the whole school's Tankery team by the Student Council president.

* Wil Ohmsford of ''Series/TheShannaraChronicles'' is less than enthusiastic when informed by Allanon that he happens to be important enough to be dragged along on the Druid's quest to keep demons from overruning the world.

* ''ShadowHearts'': Yuri doesn't particularly ''want'' to go on an epic quest or anything, but [[SpiritAdvisor that damn voice in his head]] won't leave him alone, so he's just going along with it until the CharacterDevelopment kicks in.

* In the original ''Videogame/MegaManStarForce'', Geo doesn't want to be a superhero - he just wants to do his home-schooling and mope a lot - but, well, he's a responsible type when it comes to other people being in danger, and so whenever something disastrous happens he sighs, Wave Changes, and gets on with the serious business of shootin' stuff with a Mega Buster.

* In ''TheLostFleet'', Captain John "Black Jack" Geary has been put in command of the crippled [[TheAlliance Alliance]] fleet against his will (being a HumanPopsicle for 100 years gives him seniority over any other captain). He vows to bring the fleet home, but then wants nothing more than to retire and live in peace. By the end of the main series, he realizes that the Alliance desperately needs him, and he can't quit.
