* In ''Wildcard'' Ace's initial reaction to discovering that the magic rock he and his sister Kris found is one of the rune stones that are supposed to be [[SealedEvilInACan keeping the demon Rasha'yad imprisoned]] is to leave it with the town wise man so he can get some actual adventurers to deal with the mess. Then they get back to the family farm only to find it destroyed by the local thieves' guild, whose leader wants to collect the stones for his own purposes.

* In the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' series, this is Rincewind's problem- no matter what he does, he invariably ends up in the right place and time to save the world from disaster, in spite of his efforts to avoid trouble. This has happened to him so often that in ''Discworld/TheLastHero'' he volunteers to go on the mission to stop Cohen the Barbarian; He doesn't really want to, but by now has figured that he'll end up on it somehow anyway, and might as well save himself the time.

* Often occurs in ''AceLightning''. Fortunately for Mark, it's not a very ''competent'' call.

* A less tragic version of this trope occurs in the pilot of ''Series/{{Merlin}}''. The eponymous character is scornful of his destiny to protect Arthur, wanting nothing to do with him. The next night, an enchantress makes an attempt on Arthur's life and Merlin pulls him out of the way without thinking. As a reward, Uther makes him Arthur's manservant, so he's going to have to deal with him full time now.

** The Temple of the Winds does this. It's possible to refuse that call, but the Temple wont help balance out the situation if you do.

* In the first book of the ''Literature/YoungWizards'', a simple spell to find a pen just ''[[SarcasmMode Happened]]'' to malfunction in such a way that they have to defeat the BigBad. Given the phrase in the wizarding world that "There are no Coincidences", this was clearly an example of this trope.

* In ''Literature/LordsOfTheUnderworld'', William abandons his [[spoiler:demonic]] family and their evil plots so he can live a isolated, hedonistic life on Earth- in the middle of the Arctic, no less! Unfortunately, this arrangement only lasts a few years before an old friend of William's literally teleports in, asking for his help with finding a mystical artifact...oh, and mentioning that if he refuses, she can and will destroy his most prized possession.
