** Ultimately, in Desmond's case, it's a subversion. [[spoiler:Juno manipulated history so Desmond is faced with the choice of let the world burn and become a messiah, only to be inspire new Templars after he dies, or save the world while letting Juno run free to take over mankind herself. Desmond takes the latter option because he believes it's better than the former.]]
* ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedOrigins:'' Bayek of Siwa turns out to be the subject on no less than three different prophecies throughout the game and its DLC, though it's a subversion - they're not prophecies as such, just Those Who Came Before predicting when he'd show up, and getting interpreted as prophecies by the people of Ptolemaic Egypt and Libyra.

* ''ComicBook/TheTransformersRobotsInDisguise:'' Explored with a prophecy declaring ''Starscream'' of all people as a Chosen One, destined to unite Cybertron. Naturally, the minute he learns this, Starscream's ego balloons... and as events go on, the pressures of being designated Cybertron's savior start apparently wearing on his mind and conscience, since everyone ''expects'' him to do the right thing, and he's still ''Starscream'', not to mention being overshadowed by Optimus Prime. Later on in the series, Galvatron mentions that the person who dreamt up this supposed prophecy was tripping on bad booze when he made it. [[spoiler:''Optimus Prime'' goes further - Onyx Prime made up the prophecy to inspire folk... and just as it looks like there might be a grain of truth to it, or that Starscream really is destined for greatness, Shockwave shows up to tell him that, no, he's not special. He's a ''patsy''. Shockwave made up the prophecy solely so Starscream would end up in charge of Cybertron and utterly fail at the job, leaving it ripe for Shockwave's plans.]]

* In ''ComicBook/{{Birthright}}'', Mikey Rhodes was plucked from Earth as a child in accordance with a prophecy that he would one day become the warrior that would save the realm of Terrenos by defeating [[EvilOverlord God-King Lore]]. Then it gets harshly [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructed]] as Mikey spent decades training and fighting, only to lose in what was supposed to be his final battle. Then, after Lore showed him visions of how his family had suffered and broken apart because of his absence, Mikey accepted an offer to become Lore's agent on Earth just for a chance to see his family again. [[spoiler:Furthermore, the prophecy that everyone believed was about Mikey saving Terrenos was actually recycled from an earlier version to give the resistance hope. The original hero who was summoned to save the land from a terrible evil? ''[[FallenHero God-King Lore]] himself!'']]

** {{Subverted|Trope}} by Carrot. From the first book he appeared in (''Discworld/GuardsGuards''), it has been obvious that he was the Chosen One to be king of Ankh-Morpork: he was a poor farm boy, he's pure of heart, he has a cool sword, etc. However, even though later books have made it obvious that Vimes, Vetinari, Carrot, and other members of the Watch know he is the Chosen One, Carrot prefers to remain in the Watch.

** As much as the trope is subverted, it's also played out literally; Voldemort overheard a prophecy about a child who would/could destroy him, which might have applied to either of two infants. The ONE he CHOSE to go after was Harry, and the rest is history.

* ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' has the fat panda Po chosen as the Dragon Warrior by Master Oogway, seemingly just for bursting into the arena via fireworks. Seen as a decision marked by senility and coincidence by his disciple Shifu, Oogway nonetheless genuinely believes Po is more worthy than any of the highly trained Furious Five. It takes a while, but everyone realizes that the turtle's choice is absolutely right. [[spoiler:The sequels expand on this by revealing that Po becoming the Dragon Warrior was to also serve as a vehicle to help him on his path towards his ''true'' destiny: first to save China from Lord Shen, then to help panda-kind recover the lost art of chi mastery and defeat Oogway's brother-in-arms-turned-archnemesis Kai.]]

In the short term, the fact that he ''is'' just some fat guy with more enthusiasm than training gives him a leg up on the current bad guy thanks to KevLard rendering his best attacks (which had earlier defeated every other Dragon Warrior candidate at once) useless.]]

* In ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'', the "What Makes The Sky Blue" event reveals that the protagonists (Gran/Djeeta) are the "singularity" upon which the fate of the world revolves around, whether it lead to salvation or ruin. The Primarchs subsequently choose to bestow their tetra-elemental power upon them, causing Shiva, Alexiel, Grimnir, and Europa to take an interest in them.

** The series, of course, also deconstructs this to a certain extent. Aang is a kid when he learns he's the Avatar, and promptly runs away from the pressure. Korra knew she was the Avatar from a young age, even younger than her predecessor was, and it's her ''only'' source of self-worth as her series starts.
