** Xigbar actually calls attention to this in ''Dream Drop Distance'', claiming that Sora himself is nothing special if his strength comes from his connections to other people. Sora doesn't let this faze him. He proclaims that even if he wasn't the Keyblade's first choice, he is "proud to be a small part of something greater; the people it DID choose." Master Xehanort himself describes Sora as a "dull, ordinary boy", yet also calling him a sort of Keyblade wielder he'd never seen before.

* Tad William's novel ''TheWarOfTheFlowers'' features Mud Bug Button, the [[EccentricMentor unassuming sage]] who explains carefully to the hero that he was not [[TheChosenOne chosen]], his family was not [[ItsPersonal killed by]] TheBigBad, and he did not [[HeroicBSOD have a heroic epiphany after seeing an innocent child killed]]. He just thought carefully about the situation and decided that leading a revolution was something that needed to be done.

* Kavi and Jiaan both from the ''FarsalaTrilogy'' operate under the name Sorahb, who is supposed to be reborn in a time of need acording to their country's legend. There is no Sorahb reborn, and if the legend they create is anything to go by, there probably never was an original.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' attempts to invoke this trope as a manner of trying to save the world in Volume 3. Prior to the series beginning, [[BigBad Cinder Fall]] ambushed Amber, the Fall Maiden, and began stealing her mystical and mysterious powers before Qrow Brawden rescues her. Headmaster Ozpin, not wanting someone like her to get the power when she ends up appearing in the Vytal Tournament, recruits Pyrrha Nikos to take the other half. However, the process would involve merging her soul with Amber's, and possibly erase her own personality in the process. Ozpin gives her some time to consider whether or not she's willing to do it, and she only agrees to take up the power after Cinder has already launched her plans and Vale and Beacon are under attack by Grimm and the White Fang. [[spoiler:It doesn't work as, when Pyrrha ultimately agrees, Cinder ambushes them again and takes the power for herself.]]

* On ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'' "Wishology" Trilogy, Timmy is assumed to be the Chosen One who needed to 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]].

* In ''[[Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze]]'' the Turtles are disappointed when Professor Perry reveals that the formation of the ooze that mutated them ''and'' the accident that led to the canister finding its way into the sewer was simply one large accident. No Turtle was more disappointed than Donatello. He believes there's got to be more to the accident.

It's not until near the end of the game, long after committing themselves to the quest, that they even start to consider that there could be a higher power choosing them and guiding their actions.
