[[WMG: When ever the [[OrderVersusChaos Cosmic Balance Between Law And Chaos]] is threatened, there will be an incarnation of the [[CosmicPlaything Eternal Champion]] to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong.]]
That is, if they can pause from whining about their terrible fate long enough to do so, hopefully without [[TheEndOfTheWOrldAsWeKnowIt destroying the world]] in the process this time. Some possible incarnations include:
* [[VideoGame/{{Marathon}} The Security Officer]] (and by extension Beowulf, Achilles, Gilgamesh and hundreds of others!)
* [[Franchise/{{Halo}} Master Chief John-117]] (possibly same as above)
* [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Shinji Ikari]]
* [[Film/TheMatrix Neo]]
* [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy Summers]]- in fact, The Slayer is the form which the Champion takes in the BuffyVerse
* ''Literature/HarryPotter'' (the final chapter shows one of the few 'respites' which Sepriz mentioned to Flamadin/John Daker)
* [[Literature/{{Discworld}} Rincewind]] - oh, the irony
* [[SailorNothing Himei Shoutan]]
* [[Franchise/EvilDead Ash Williams]] - because even the EC can't be {{Emo}} ''all'' the time. Besides, a chainsaw is '''''so''''' much cooler than some rusty old sword.
* WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack
* [[Franchise/{{Dune}} Paul Atreides]]
* ''ComicBook/CerebusTheAardvark''
* Webcomic/DominicDeegan - pretty explicitly, in fact
* [[TheWotch Anne Onymous]], who hasn't been doing it long enough yet to get really depressed about it - give her time, sooner or later CerebusSyndrome will catch up with her
* Baugb the Elf from ''Elf Life''/''Bookelfs''
* Reuben Flagg from ''American Flagg!''
* [[Literature/TheElricSaga Elric of Melniboné]] and anyone else explicitly labeled as an incarnation of the Eternal Champion in the works of Creator/MichaelMoorcock, obviously.
* Mr. Game & Watch, who'll do it without any whining. He's too damn cool for that.
* Franchise/TheCrow
* [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Kamina]], who, in turn, incarnates in Simon
** Or more likley, was a botched incarnation that split the champion's power in half, and only with the death of one could he become complete once more.
* ''WesternAnimation/WallE'', the little guy worked 700 years to clean up a defiled planet, then [[spoiler:instilled free will to robots and man and helped found a new age of peace]]. Nice work.
** [[Series/BattlestarGalactica2003 Of course, he's done all of that before, and will do all of it again.]]
* [[WMG/GrandUnifyingGuessesAvatarTheLastAirbender All incarnations of]] [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender The Avatar]]. Including [[Franchise/{{Ultima}} The Totally Unrelated Avatar]].[[note]]The first link makes 3 of these mentions [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment redundant]], but it's still true for all on that page.[[/note]]
* [[http://www.whoissuicide.com Suicide]].
* [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link]]...Kind of a given.
* [[Literature/TheWheelOfTime Rand al'Thor]]
* [[Series/DoctorWho The Doctor]], of course!
* WebVideo/ItalianSpiderman
* [[Literature/TheDresdenFiles Harry Dresden]]. Saved the world three times and counting.
* [[Series/{{Supernatural}} Sam and Dean Winchester]]. [[spoiler:The Archangel Michael claims it's in their bloodline]].
* [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Noel Vermillion]]
* [[Franchise/MassEffect Commander Shepard.]] [[{{Badass}} No more needs to be said.]]
* The PrinceOfPersia
* The [[Franchise/{{Castlevania}} Belmont Clan]]
* [[Series/OnceUponATime Emma Swan]]
* The [[StarWars Skywalker]] clan.
* MaxPayne
* [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim the Dragonborn]]
* Holgen Carlsen from ThreeHeartsAndThreeLions by Creator/PoulAnderson, which were Moorcock got the order versus chaos thing.

* [[Series/SleepyHollow Ichabod Crane]]
