* In ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'', the six Toa were first thought to be a unique group of heroes, until after three years of storyline Vakama spoke the words: "You are not the first Toa." From then on, more and more Toa were featured and there was even mention of a war in which several hundred Toa fought. Subverted somewhat in that Tahu and his team were indeed chosen among the others to save the Matoran Universe by awakening Mata Nui; they were made to be fail-safes to protect Mata Nui should anything happen to him.

* ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' expands the Digidestined far beyond the three new guys. Each part of the world has at least one Digidestined team, complete with an [[TheObiWan Obi-Wan]] who's identical to our heroes' mysterious sometime-helper Gennai. They eventually come into play by helping out during the World Tour arc and the Finale.

* ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'' does this with the Guardians. At the end of the second season we learn that [[spoiler: the Guardian consul has targeted Mainframe for deletion]], in the DarkerAndEdgier third season we learn that [[spoiler: The Guardians have all been infected by the "super-virus" Daemon.]] Which serves as the plot for one of the two movies that make up the fourth season. The parallel with the Green Lantern Corps is actually pretty close, with the keytools acting as power-rings. This could almost be seen as a {{Deconstruction}} of the Green Lantern Corps, with moments of extremely [[MoralDissonance questionable actions]], and the [[AndManGrewProud arrogant way]] many of them view viruses. Made all the more jarring when [[spoiler: The keytools leave after they grow complacent and are infiltrated by Daemon]]

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': It's eventually revealed in conversation that the school Shinji attends is a front organization for the powers that be, and that ''all of Shinji's classmates'' (if not the entire school) are potential Children candidates. Though they're still just Mauve Shirts, as the greatest power that be intentionally engineered reality to make Shinji the "Chosen One". In all the wrong ways possible, actually.

* The Night's Watch of ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', an army set up to protect Westeros from supernatural threats from the high North, was ''originally'' this. By the events of the books themselves, however, the Watch has effectively become a PenalColony, manned almost exclusively by [[TradingBarsForStripes sentenced criminals]]. Prince Rhaegar once said in a vision ''"The dragon must have three heads"''. We have seen only Daenerys having three dragons until she sees she must be find other two riders, possibly from her family. Fandom [[EpilepticTrees has many]] [[WildMassGuessing candidates]].

** ''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 [[Anime/MegamanNTWarrior Rockman.exe Stream]], Duo marks 13 individuals with the "Crest of Duo", enabling them to see his comet, as well as become one with their Net Navis through Cross Fusion, as a test to see if Earth deserves not to be destroyed by him.

* 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...

** [[SpoiledBrat Pacifica]] [[SpoiledSweet Northwest]], represented by the Llama (easily the shakiest connection, as she [[ContrivedCoincidence just so happens]] to be wearing a sweater with a llama on it during the ritual--and it's not even her sweater! But [[BecauseDestinySaysSo who knows why she was compelled to wear it?]])
