** The USSR. Just the USSR. They knew that the Axis Powers were up to no good regarding them (Fascists and Communists generally don't get along), but tried to postpone their involvement in the war as much as possible, even if that meant signing non-aggression pacts with Hitler. Then Hitler launched Operation Barbarossa and invaded them.

* Villainous example with Music/{{Mothy}}'s character [[HangingJudge Gallerian Marlon]] in the Franchise/Evillious: when [[MagnificentBastard MA]] asked him to help her find the remaining [[ArtifactOfDoom vessels of sin]], he asked if it would cost him any money. [[EstablishingCharacterMoment When she said it would, he declined her offer.]] Then MA noticed the picture of his family on his desk...

* ''Fanfic/ReluctantHero'''s Zuko very emphatically does ''not'' want to be the Avatar, but since killing himself is not an option, he's going to settle for spending his life in a backwater town from the Earth Kingdom. Of course the Northern Water Tribe choose to kidnap him right after he decided on this course of action.

Overlaps with DoomedHometown, only this trope is often viciously more [[WatchingTroyBurn personal]]; sometimes overlaps with DeathByOriginStory. Compare with TheVillainKnowsWhereYouLive, a possible reason why the call keeps coming. Contrast with PlotDetour; and StuffedIntoTheFridge, where the similarly [[ItsPersonal personal]] tragedy is exceptionally cruel but there was no RefusalOfTheCall and the event seems largely unnecessary for the story. See also NiceJobBreakingItHerod, for when this is the result of a SelfFulfillingProphecy.

Even if a hero wishes to [[RefusalOfTheCall refuse]] the CallToAdventure, destiny has ways of making sure that it can't be ignored, and one of the biggest ways is by making it personal, hitting the hero right where he lives.

lives.''



Embittered and hardened by the experience, TheHero thus takes up the call, either to avenge those that were hurt or slain, rescue those who were kidnapped, to make the villains ''stop'' making his life a living hell, and/or to make sure that whatever happened does not happen again to anyone else. Many an AntiHero has been shaped by this. HeWhoFightsMonsters almost certainly has.

* ''SuperSentai''/''PowerRangers'' has instances of characters not being so eager to join the team, but for some reason or another end up getting attacked by the villains anyways. Most well known example to American viewers would be in the pilot of MMPR, when the rangers decide they aren't interested in being thrown into a fight to save the world, but Rita didn't know that and sends her [[{{Mooks}} Putty Patrol]] to kill them anyways, [[NiceJobFixingItVillain creating the team that would thwart her for the rest of the series.]]
