* The TalesSeries often uses this trope; however given that it's the ''TalesSeries'', you can bet that it's often played with or flat-out [[ItSucksToBeTheChosenOne deconstructed]].

** The title character, at least until the end of season one where it becomes subverted when Buffy was drowned and quickly resuscitated. She was replaced by Kendra Young, then Faith Lehane, but for all intents and purposes Buffy was still the Slayer. All Slayers before Buffy (Nikki Wood, the First Slayer, etc) played this trope straight. They rarely live to see their 20s, and tend to be ''chosen'' when they're extremely young, at 15-17 if they're exceptionally lucky, and didn't get discovered by the Watcher's Council particularly quickly (as appears to be the case with both Buffy and Faith and many of the Potential Slayers during season 7, but not the case with Kendra, who got an even shorter end of the stick, abandoned by her parents and raised by her Watcher). The "One" part of the Chosen One is very literal - "One girl in all the world." (At least until the end of Season One)

** Bran is destined to be the only person who can truly defeat the White Walkers and the Night's King. When he first meets the Three-Eyed-Raven the raven tells Bran that he has been waiting for him to arrive for a thousand years. By the halfway point of Season 6, Bran fully inherits the powers of the Three-Eyed-Raven and becomes his successor and his uncle Benjen tells Bran that when the Night's King finally invades Westeros Bran will be the one to stand against him.
*** If the prophecies of the Prince That Was Promised are true and apply to Jon Snow then Bran may not face him alone. In a thematic parallel, Bran's visions of Jon's true origins and power to oppose the Night's King may make him the Merlin to Jon's Arthur.

* In the ''[[Literature/NightWatch Watch]]'' books by SergeyLukyanenko, Anton and Svetlana's daughter is supposed to be the next messiah, although the ending of the second book makes it unclear as to whether she will be the actual messiah or simply an extremely-powerful Other. As of the sixth novel, we're still not sure, although it's claimed that she has the power to [[spoiler:destroy Twilight itself by killing the Tiger, its manifestation, eliminating magic from the world.]]

* In ''Film/LazerTeam'', Adam has spent 38 years being trained to be the Champion of Earth, chosen by Colonel Emory to wear the [[PoweredArmor Suit of Power]] that is scheduled to be delivered to Earth in 2015. Then, on the day the suit is set to arrive, a bunch of losers accidentally shoot down the spacecraft and decide to try on the different pieces of the suit, causing it to bond with them. No wonder Adam is pissed. Those four idiots have just taken away his entire life's purpose. All he can do is to try to train them to use the suit, but their sheer incompetence and inability to work together (at least, at first) only confirms to him that he is the only one, who can save Earth. [[spoiler:He changes his mind after seeing the team successfully fight off alien agents. He ends up willingly acting as their coach during the final battle and then performs a HeroicSacrifice in order to give them a chance to succeed. He [[ObiWanMoment dies in the knowledge that his purpose is finally fulfilled]]]].

* Despite him never being called this, [[spoiler: Hiro]] of Series/{{Heroes}} kind of becomes this when his destiny is to [[spoiler: SaveTheWorld and "kill" Sylar.]]

* Wonderfully skewered on ''Series/ZNation'' as Murphy is clearly the Chosen One who is the only man to survive a zombie bite and could be the man to save humanity from the plague of the undead. He also happens to be an ex-con, arrogant, self-serving and a total jackass who could care less about the rest of humanity. He just wants a decent meal, often causes even more disasters, and does not seeming to care about the people who are dying to keep him alive.

* Troy Barnes in Series/{{Community}}, who's destiny is to be....the greatest air conditioner repair-man ever. Yes, it�s apparently SeriousBusiness, for the One True Repair-Man Will Repair Man.

* In ''Series/{{Atlantis}}'' Jason is the Chosen One, we know this because the Oracle makes sure to cryptically mention it OnceAnEpisode. She is somewhat more [[VaguenessIsComing vague]] what he is chosen for.

* ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'' also is an interesting example. Neku is just another player of the Reapers' Game, among dozens of other [[spoiler: dead]] guys/gals. Later in the game, it's revealed that [[spoiler: Neku IS actually the chosen one... And he was chosen by Shibuya's resident Jerkass God just because he was staring at a graffiti wall.]]. However, in the Secret Reports [[spoiler: Hanekoma reveals that Neku has "dense and all-inclusive Soul" and "high Imagination" and was therefore picked by the Composer for his qualities (that are the reason that Neku can use all sorts of pin while his fellow Players cannot). The graffiti wall in the UG attracts people with those qualities, so Josh just knew that Neku was the right person. Which makes Neku a true Chosen One... Or sort of that.]]
