* What little we know about the G-Man in ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life}}'' is that he is capable of plucking people from certain doom and replacing them [[RightManInTheWrongPlace where they'll be more useful]]. He does this with Gordon at the end of ''Half-Life 1'' and ''2'', and is later revealed to have done the same for [[spoiler:Alyx and Eli Vance at Black Mesa.]]

* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'', the Chosen Ones are members of a particular bloodline who have the potential to revive the Goddess Martel, and are selected by Cruxis, the organization of angels that runs the Church of Martel, to go on a journey to "regenerate the world", aka bring life-giving mana back to it. [[spoiler:Cruxis is actually run by the BigBad of the game, who is looking for a suitable vessel for the trapped soul of his sister Martel, since her body was killed long ago: the Chosen Ones are thus selected for their genetic compatibility with his sister, in order to give them the best chance of being able to "revive" her by acting as host for her soul at the expense of their own.]]

* ''{{Exalted}}'': If you're an Exalt and is not a Dragon-blooded, then someone in Heaven, Hell, or Underworld is vouching for you. In case of being a Sidereal, one of the Five Maiden chose you ''before'' you were born, unless your exaltation is some kind of freak accident.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' movie ''WesternAnimation/{{Wishology}}'' shows the Ancient Fairy Council holding auditions (on a stage and everything) for "the Chosen One" whom they would appoint to unite and wield the three wands needed to defeat "the Darkness," should it ever return. They chose a warrior named Turbo Thunder from a planet of people with superpowers who wanted the job so he could get revenge on the Darkness for destroying his planet. Unfortunately, after waiting thousands of years, [[MissedTheCall he fell asleep when the Darkness finally returned]]. In the meantime, Jorgen von Strangle deduced from the prophecy's description that Timmy Turner must be the Chosen One and gave him the job.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}, [[spoiler: the GreaterScopeVillain, Izanami, was responsible for giving the Protagonist, Namatame and Adachi the ability to enter the [=TV=] World, so that she could determine what sort of world humanity wanted. Since, Adachi was the most active prolific, she believes that what they want is [[AssimilationPlot oblivion]].]]
** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}} has two examples:
*** [[spoiler: Yaldabaoth was the one who gave the Protagonist and Goro the ability access the Metaverse, allowing them to create the Phantom Thieves of Hearts and Shido's Conspiracy, and pits them against each other as part of a twisted "game" to determine whether or not he should remake the world. However, Yaldabaoth intentionally [[FixingTheGame rigs the game]] so that he can enslave humanity himself.]]
*** [[spoiler: Morgana, meanwhile, was created by [[BigGood Igor]] to gather "Tricksters", and guide them in his place, so that they can stop Yaldabaoth.]]

[[spoiler:As it turns out, the Nerevarine isn't so much of [[TheChosenOne A Chosen One]]. Rather, [[MultipleChoiceChosen anyone who meets the criteria]] of being the Nerevarine (as she set forth in the prophesy) can ''become'' the Nerevarine. At one point during the main quest, you get to meet the spirits of several of these "failed incarnates"]].
