* In ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' "Wishology" trilogy, Timmy is assumed to be the Chosen One who will defeat the Darkness, but ''after'' he (first) defeats it, it turns out another guy was the real supposed savior. Of course, it's eventually revealed that this guy was chosen ''by a committee holding auditions'', so maybe this one isn't Destiny's fault so much as poor judgement by the fairies. Also, the Darkness wasn't evil at all, the fairies just assumed that because it ''[[DarkIsNotEvil looks]]'' [[DarkIsNotEvil like an evil entity]].

* While the later incarnations of the Avatar of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' and ''Westernanimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' are all TheChosenOne, [[GuileHero Wan]], the first Avatar, went against the beliefs and lifestyles of the world at the time, refusing to accept that things could not be changed and would always stay the same. Through his efforts, he merged with the spirit [[BigGood Raava]] to stop [[BigBad Vaatu]], and the two began the Avatar Cycle, separated humans and spirits, and allowed humanity to leave the Lion Turtles for the wider world.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'', Ben is surprised, and deeply disappointed, to learn that the Omnitrix had actually been sent to Earth for his grandfather Max, and attached itself to him only by mistake. This is later weakened a little by its creator Azmuth talking about how [[BecauseDestinySaysSo destiny may have chosen Ben]]...[[ZigZaggedTrope though this same character doesn't fully accept Ben as the bearer himself]] until the end of ''WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien''.

* [[ComicBook/{{Robin}} Tim Drake]]. He doesn't have any tragic backstory that eventually led him into the path of being a hero; he became a hero simply because he wanted to help and make a difference.

* The ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' will frequently create some sort of hero, only to reveal how much ItSucksToBeTheChosenOne, with an Unchosen taking center stage.

** In ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'' you are somehow even worse off than being an Undead; you're an Unkindled, a worthless thing unfit even to be cinders to the flame and only being risen because the proper Lords of Cinder who Linked the Fire can't or won't anymore. [[spoiler: By the end you've returned the errant Lords to their thrones, dismantled an entire religion dedicated to spreading the Abyss, given final justice to the old gods of Anor Londo for what the Cathedral of the Deep did to them, and either Linked the Fire to prolong the world a tad longer, let the flames die out so that a new world may rise from its ashes naturally, or stolen away the last embers of the First Flame to rise as the unquestioned ruler of Humanity and the Age of Dark as the Lord of Londor.]]

You and the other numerous Unkindled represent not plan A, not plan B, but plan C. [[TheChosenOne The Chosen One]] who was supposed to link the fire, refused. The Lords of Cinder, beings that were able to previously link the fire, all abandoned their duty, content to let the world fade and die. The Unkindled are resurrected as a last, desperate attempt to stave off the darkness, even though there's little chance of them succeeding. Things are so bad, there's nothing left to lose in trying.

** All of the Riders in ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'' are chosen by Sid and/or Yggdrasill... except Kouta (he got the Driver intended for his dance team's leader, [[spoiler:whom Kouta later unknowingly killed in the first episode because he turned into an Inves]]), Zack (Kaito stole a Driver and gave it to him), and Oren (forcefully got one from one of the person that was chosen by Sid to become a Rider because he made a mess on his bakery).

** In ''Videogame/MassEffectAndromeda'', Ryder was made Pathfinder after their father sacrificed himself to save them and passed on the role to them. It's even pointed out that this looked more like an act of nepotism than anything else.
