* In the light novel ''I Saved Too Many Girls and Caused the Apocalypse'', the main character Rekka is both TheChosenOne and TheUnchosenOne at the exact same time. More specifically, he's chosen as destiny's failsafe: from his sixteenth birthday until he becomes an adult, of all the myriad "stories" within his multiverse, anytime TheHero failed to show up, for any reason at all, TheCall will hunt him down no matter where he hides. And he's been the designated hero for so many stories he even wound up the designated hero for his future self: by the time he grows up he's saved so many girls, including galactic princesses, sorceresses, and demigods, who all want him, that the ensuing strife in the future will threaten to wreck the earth and more, unless he changes the future by choosing someone and getting the others to give up.

* [[spoiler:Lemeza's father, Shorn/Shawn Kosugi]] is this in ''VideoGame/LaMulana''. In the Shrine of the Mother he leaves you a message, stating that he made it to the centre of the ruins of La-Mulana, but was unable to give the FinalBoss a true form, since he was never deemed worthy to hold the Medicine of Life by the Four Sages/Philosophers.

to:

* ''VideoGame/LaMulana'':
** It comes off at first that there's just a Chosen One based on all the tablets that Lemeza comes across in the ruins, but it turns out to be this trope instead when Lemeza finds a tablet basically stating that just by getting ''that'' far in the ruins past all the puzzles and monsters on your own means you're the chosen one. So it's both tropes at the same time.

* In the course of ''[[VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft World of Warcraft: Legion]]'', you retrieve and empower an artifact, Light's Heart, which channels the spirit of a Naaru, a being of light, called Xe'ra. Xe'ra insists that on Azeroth there is a "Child of Light and Shadow" who will be instrumental to defeating the Legion. This individual is none other than [[spoiler:Illidan Stormarage]]. When he meets Xe'ra in person, the Naaru tells her would-be Chosen One about his destiny. However, after he refuses Xe'ra's offer of power, having been in a position like this before, Xe'ra tries to empower him by force. He takes this poorly, fights back, and [[spoiler:Illidan completely destroys Xe'ra]]. He sums up his reasons to one of Xe'ra's enraged followers.
-->"Your faith has blinded you. There can be no chosen one. Only we can save ourselves."

** The BigBad of the ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' series is a dark unchosen one. His theft of the Triforce of Power has ultimately left him as bound it as the other two pieces are to their intended Chosen Ones. TheChosenOne who was supposed to get the Triforce of Power remains unidentified and presumably uninvolved.

* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'s'' [[TheCaptain Malcolm Reynolds]] was not chosen in any way to be a hero...he just happened to be the one whose boat Simon Tam booked passage on, and possessed a [[HonorBeforeReason honorable]] streak. On the other hand, [[TheWoobie River Tam]] ''was'' chosen, [[TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive but she damn well didn't want to be chosen]] and [[PhlebotinumRebel fought against it as best she could.]]

* 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.
