* [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]] In HunterTheReckoning. The Imbued are the ones who JumpedAtTheCall, and receive powers to fight the supernatural forces. But there are those who RefusedTheCall, referred to as Bystanders - they don't get powers, but the ability to see the supernatural ''doesn't go away,'' and TheMasquerade remains [[BrokenMasquerade broken]] for them, so they ''still'' can't ignore it. TheCall is thorough indeed.

* In ''LostOdyssey'', the call most definitely knows where Kaim lives. In fact, the call essentially comes (for all the immortal characters) in the form of the main villain, who, years ago, inflicted tremendous emotional pain to the point that the damage to their psyche was literally a fate worse than death, then subsequently sealed off their memories and left them to become walking corpses, eternally (but NOT desperately) searching for their purpose in life.

* In ''LordOfTheRings'', Frodo Baggins never ''actively'' resists the Call, but he drags his feet about leaving the Shire to the point that he just avoids meeting a Nazgûl on (literally) his front doorstep. (And it turns out that, at the same time, Saruman's thugs were invading the Shire from a different direction...)
