*** A similar prophecy affected Achilles - he would definitely die bored and unknown if he died old, and he would definitely die young if he went out finding glory in battle (which he is ''very'' [[BadAss good at]]) - namely UsefulNotes/TheTrojanWar. He was wanted the latter as a big BloodKnight and died in said war, despite his mother's attempts to keep him out of it.

* ''Film/TheDarkKnight'': The Joker offers Franchise/{{Batman}} a choice between saving Harvey and saving the girl; likewise, he offers both a passenger-ship and a ship full of prisoners the choice of blowing up the other ship in order to save themselves. Also an example of the SadisticChoice.

* The Creator/RobertFrost poem ''The Road Not Taken'' '''parodies''' this trope: even when the guy takes one road, there is no difference with the other except that it was less traveled. ''The whole point is that these roads were never mutually exclusive and the narrator is only a SmallNameBigEgo that thinks there was any difference''.

-->It's a funny thing. [[EvenEvilHasStandards No matter how low you sink there's still a right and a wrong]], and you always end up choosing. You go one way so you can try to live with yourself. You can go the other, and still be walking around, but [[EmptyShell you're dead and you don't know it]].
