* Jonah in ''Literature/TheBible'' is an example of Resigned To The Call coming after he RefusedTheCall and got a dose of YouCantFightFate. By the time the big fish spat him out, his attitude had changed from "I am ''NOT'' going to Ninevah!" to "I guess I'm going to Ninevah."

* (Bel)Garion, the main Chosen One of David Eddings' ''Literature/{{Belgariad}}'' is Resigned To The Call; he spends roughly 4 1/2 of the five books asking "Why ''me''?". C'Nedra also spends a fair bit of books 4 and 5 Resigned To The Call, giving recruiting speeches and leading the army because, according to the Prophecy, she must in order for Belgarion to have a chance to win.
* Morgon of ''Literature/TheRiddleMasterTrilogy'' is very much not happy about the ambiguous, threatening prophecies that have been ascribed to him and only grudgingly agrees after almost being murdered a few times to try and figure some of this stuff out.
* In ''Literature/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.

Then there's the hero who isn't happy about being called, but doesn't believe that he can avoid it, either. For whatever reason, his reaction isn't "Yay! Adventure!" or "Leave me alone. I'm not doing it." His reaction is "I can't talk you into picking someone else, can I? I'm gonna have to do this thing, aren't I? ''(sigh) Fine.'' Let's get it over with." He's Resigned To The Call.

* [[NorthKorea Kim Il Sung]] supposedly preferred being a military man over a political leader, at least according to the Soviet Diplomats who had to convince him to take up leadership because he was the closest thing to a Communist leader in Korea following the Japanese occupation.

--> '''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.

--> '''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
