* During World War II, the US public was reluctant to enter the conflict, instead aiming for a peaceful resolution (meanwhile, the government was already participating via the Land Lease program and American ships were shooting at German ships and vice versa). The bombing of Pearl Harbor pushed them over the edge and precipitated the US's active involvement in the war.

If the villain or villains were not introduced earlier, it is usually at this point where they will make their presence, and their evil, felt for the first time. Friends or loved ones may be hurt, kidnapped or outright slain. Homes or even hometowns may get razed to the ground. The hero may well find himself actively hunted or worse. Whatever the form it takes, bad and often tragic things happen to the hero and his world, and the point is driven home that [[YouCantFightFate he can't run away]] from his life mission.

* An oddly literal variation occurs in the first ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' film: Elizabeth's cursed gold piece actually 'calls' to the pirates, which brings them to her DoomedHometown.
** Port Royal did survive the undead pirates' attack, though it got a serious dose of RapePillageAndBurn.

* [[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.
