"It's a bloodline."
"Stretching back to Cain and Abel. It's in your blood, your father's blood, your family's blood."
"Awesome, six degrees of heaven bacon."
― Micheal and Dean Winchester (Supernatural S5E13: The Song Remains the Same)

Also Called

  • Chosen
  • Destined
  • Prophesied
  • The One


The circumstance that the user is given powers related to their role in the fulfillment of a particular goal by an external, but in-story entity, such as a god or sorcerer. These powers can vary according to the world itself.


  • Empathic Weaponry: Often has an associated prophesied weapon.
  • Living Anomaly: Rarely, powers may be given that exceed the normal bounds of the universe.
  • Reincarnation: The destiny may be associated with a particular, circulated soul.




  • Powers may be limited exclusively to the role they were chosen for, and may not work otherwise.
  • Powers may be removed upon completion or failure of their goal.
  • Those who are aware of these chosen ones' destinies may be able to utilize them to their own gain.
  • As they are not the users of Destiny Manipulation, their roles could control them more than they can control their powers.
    • Users of Destiny Manipulation can possibly remove their association with prophecy, and thus remove their powers.
  • May not be able to change their fates.
  • Fate Denial
