* ''{{Suikoden}}'' - every major game in the series revolves around the 108 Stars of Destiny, 108 usually recruitable characters that all play a vital role in the fate of reality.

* A number of ''DragonQuest'' games have a Chosen One, though the method of choosing differs. In [=DQ1=], the hero is chosen by virtue of being the descendant of a great hero. In [=DQ2=] is similar, but the choices are slightly on the larger scale given the larger family tree. In [=DQ3=], the same thing happens, but [[spoiler: the story is a prequel, where the hero goes on to initiate the heroic linage of the Roto/Edrick family.]] [=DQ4=] has a chosen one philosophy, but the game rather treats all the cast as TheChosenMany. [=DQ5=], the protagonist is actually ''not'' the Chosen One, [[spoiler: but his inevitable son is.]]

* The 2004 ''TheBardsTale'' parodies this rather savagely. You are told early on that your character is the chosen one on an important quest, but as you progress through the game, you encounter a number of self-proclaimed Chosen Ones who make big speeches about their destiny, only to get killed horribly by monsters or booby traps. You eventually stumble across a whole prison full of "Chosen Ones" of various ages.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Mixels}}'' episode "A Quest for the Lost Mixamajig", King Nixel ends up creating a ruse plot on who will be the Chosen One to unlock the secrets of the Mixamajig, where Snoof is the one picked for his gullibility and heavy want to be special. Eventually, [[spoiler:it is revealed that this was pulled on multiple Mixels at once, leading to a fight over who the Chosen One is, making it easier for them to fall into the King's trap.]]

* ''Webcomic/{{Erfworld}}'':
** In a general sense, specific units can have specific Fates (such as being Fated to serve under a specific Caster or croak a specific Ruler). Some units have a lot more Fate than others. Fighting a specific Fate causes undue hardship as Fate tries to railroad things back onto course. Fate ''can'' be beaten, but it is exceedingly difficult and usually just ends up delaying the inevitable. Even if you seemingly defeat Fate (such as, say, by croaking the unit that was supposed to croak you), it will usually just be replaced with a different Fate that is even worse for you.
** Wanda Firebaugh, has had at least three Fates over the course of her life: Being popped into a doomed Side when everyone else except the Predictamancer was expecting a warlord, serving under the Hippiemancer Olive Branch, and obtaining an Arkentool. After that, she still has Fate, but it's a bit more blurred; she's supposed to be doing ''something'' with the Arkenpliers, and she has an unfathomably strong Fated connection to Jillian. Beyond that, it is hard to say.
** Jillian Zamussels (originally Jillian Banhammer) was originally popped as heir when her father was informed that his perfect bubble kingdom of Faq would fall one day. Jillian was Fated to croak the Ruler of Haffaton (which ended up being Olive Branch, after the original Ruler left Erfworld) and rule Faq as a queen. From there, she has unclear Fates connecting her to Wanda and Ansom.
** And then of course there is Parson Gotti, summoned from our world to be the "Perfect Warlord." After the Battle of Gobwin Knob, Wanda becomes convinced that he is an even more important instrument of Fate than herself, and refuses to make even basic strategic decisions without him. [[spoiler:Turns out she's right. The spell that summoned him was created by multiple conspiracies. The Hippiemancers summoned him to end war, the Thinkamancers to defeat Charlie, and the Predictamancers at the behest of Fate itself]].
--->'''Parson:''' Great. [[GenreSavvy How many prophecies am I fulfilling]]?\\
'''Isaac:''' Three. Well, four.

* In ''The Oaken Throne'', a prequel to Robin Jarvis' ''Literature/DeptfordMice'' trilogy, a Silver Acorn pendant literally falls into the paws of a squirrelmaiden named Ysabelle. It is the symbol of office for the squirrel monarchs known as Starwives, and she is thus chosen as the successor to the throne.

* Sparhawk in the Creator/DavidEddings ''Literature/{{Elenium}}'' trilogy is the one [[spoiler:destined to wield the mystical sapphire rose known as the Bhelliom. Eventually, this is explained by the fact that the Bhelliom, centuries back, actually spawned a human offspring, from whom Sparhawk is descended. Sparhawk is, essentially, a minor god and never knew it.]]
** This is about the ''only'' thing he's destined to do, [[spoiler: because he's Anakha, the Man without a Destiny - a trait that scares gods because, unlike any other person ''with'' a destiny, they can't predict what he's going to do from one moment to the next.]]
