** ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution'' goes one step further and allows you to pick any faction, even [[UnwittingPawn the until-then Bad Guys]], and hand the world over to them. Or [[OmnicidalNeutral kill them all]]. According to canon, none of these choices prevent ''Deus Ex 1'' from taking place, again reducing your choices to "smite the world," "rape the world," or "trash the world" rather than "save the world."

* ''VideoGame/DeusEx'' subverts this -- while your inevitable goal is to prevent Big Bad from taking over the world, you can't actually save the world. It's in ruins and your choice is who to hand the reconstruction contract to [[spoiler:a largely insane AI, a "compassionate conspiracy" leader that keeps his mentor in cryogenic almost-stasis in his basement, or global anarchy.]] If any of that counts as "saved" is largely a matter of opinion (or, as the game would put it, choice).

* ''ShadowHearts Covenant'' shows why it's important to save the SaveTheWorld element for last. Being told that the end boss is going to destroy the world loses a lot of kick when you've already saved the world twice; even once before the halfway point of the game.
