** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'': Princess Ashelia B'nargin Dalmasca, descendant of Dynast-King Raithwall, is [[spoiler:chosen by the Occurria to set mankind's history on the "right" path. However, their idea of "right" involves mass genocide of the entire Archadian Empire, and even Ashe's hatred of said Empire falters at the prospect. Strangely, their usage of illusions indicate that Vaan was their Plan B for a time, but they gave up on him when he outgrew his hang-ups. It was this very growth that helped inspire Ashe to reject her "chosen destroyer" role outright.]]

* In ''Literature/HouseOfNight'', every vampyre is personally chosen by [[GodOfGood Nyx]]- and there are a lot of vampyres. Given how involved Nyx gets in the lives of mortals (and that vampyres are her favourite pawns to work through), the Change is basically a sign that She wants or will want you to do Her bidding.

** Although it's no surprise to the audience (those familiar with the classic series anyway), Rose is somewhat taken aback in [[DoctorWhoNSS2E3SchoolReunion School Reunion]] to learn that she is not the first person the Doctor has taken with him on his journeys. Not only were there others, but eventually they tend to be left behind...

** Super Saiyan God can be achieved by any Saiyan with a righteous heart, but there needs to be six of them to perform the ritual. Goku absorbs the power of godhood into his being, keeping the power of Super Saiyan God even after the time limit runs out and Vegeta had to work through Whis to gain his version of Super Saiyan God by becoming a Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan.

* The GrandFinale of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' reveals that there are ten individuals, each represented by a particular symbol, who, when banded together, have to power to complete a ritual which can banish [[BigBad Bill Cipher]]. The trope is ultimately Zigzagged: while all ten of the Chosen Many have a special connection to Gravity Falls itself, the symbols that represent them have occasionally tenuous connections at best (see below).

* Captain Britain is part of the Captain Britain Corps in the ''Comicbook/{{Excalibur}}'' series, where each different Britain in the Marvel multiverse has one to defend the country. Most of them are different versions of Brian Braddock, but this isn't always the case. Since there's one for almost every reality, not every Captain Britain is Caucasian, male, or even good for that matter. There have been at least two Nazis in the role, since they technically represent the ideals of their Britain. Also Captain Granbretan, who comes from a Britain that had been conquered by Napoleon. More esoteric Captains Britain have included [[Literature/NineteenEightyFour Captain Airstrip-One]], [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs Britanicus Rex]], [[TheRomanEmpire Centurion Britannus]], [[CaptainAmerica Captain Colonies]] and at least two Skrulls. Oh, and Captain UsefulNotes/{{Wales}}.
