[[folder: Anime and Manga ]]

* ''Anime/{{Monster}}'': Dr. Kenzo Tenma. Who does what he perceives to be the moral and right thing, at the expense of his reputation, criminal record, and personal life.
* Yugi Muto of ''Anime/YuGiOh''. Most likely the regular one in particular, since [[SplitPersonality The Other Yugi]] has technically been dead for thousands of years, and it's only via the regular Yugi's existence that ''he'' can continue to exist and thus save the world multiple times. Regular Yugi is often described as "the chosen one" or "vessel" for the Other Yugi.

* ''Series/BuckRogersInTheTwentyFifthCentury'': borrowed a variation of that idea for one of the second season.




[[folder: Western Animation ]]
* Quite possibly Jack Darby and Raf Esquivel of ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime''. The former is entrusted with an ancient and powerful artifact by Optimus Prime, and the latter has an inexplicable ability to understand an Autobot that can only communicate in coded beeps and whirs and a prodigious coding ability. Both have proven willing to give their lives for Earth or Cybertron. Possibly Miko Nakadai as well, as she also shares their connection with the Autobots and is likewise willing to sacrifice herself. If they exist in the Franchise/TransformersAlignedUniverse, these three children are likely among them.

If numerous works of fiction and even religion are to be believed, then in this world are a number of people whose [[SaveThisPersonSaveTheWorld mere existence]] keeps the universe going. Maybe because the gods are paying them particular attention and these few people are effectively acting as the scale by which the [[HumanityOnTrial rest of the world is being judged]]. The origin of this idea is the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tzadikim_Nistarim Tzadikim Nistarim, or Lamed Vav Tzadikim]], a concept rooted in Judaism which states that the world continues to exist only because of the existence of thirty-six Righteous Souls, who keep the whole thing going. The idea exists in other religions also, but this is the one which is most widely known.

* ''Young Wizard'': Creator/DianeDuane clearly used this concept as the basis for the Abdals in the series. There are more than 36 of them, but only because they exist in numerous realms of habitation (some of which are probably far stranger than planets) throughout the multiverse. In relative terms, they're still very rare, and our planet probably has considerably fewer than 36. In all other respects, they're pretty much identical to the Tzadikim Nistarim.

* The SCPFoundation has them as one of their [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/djoric-dmatix-proposal SCP-001]] proposals; they are capable of neutralizing any anomaly in existence, and if they die, they cause massive fluctuations in reality. When all 36 gather in one place, it is implied that it'll neutralize every anomaly in existence, and end the SCP Universe as we know it.

* ''GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'': The Tzadikim Nistarim really exist (along with pretty much every other legendary figure) because of the power of human belief. In the ''GGU'', if enough people believe something is real, it becomes real. Some of the 36 are real people, others are AnthropomorphicPersonifications of certain ideals.

* ''ComicBook/TheSandman'': According to Death of the Endless, Joshua Norton was one. He stopped rioters trying to burn down Chinatown by dropping to his knees praying loudly, ShamingTheMob.
