Anakin Skywalker


Destiny

Anakin was concieved by the force; it was said that he would bring balance to it. He was trained as a Jedi Knight and became one of the most gifted force users the order had ever seen.

Anakin however betrayed the Jedi Order and as a result wiped out the majority of the force users in the galaxy. It wasn't until the Battle of Endor that Anakin fulfilled his destiny by killing the Emperor and sacrificing himself; thus destroying the old schism and paving the way for a new order lead by his son, Luke.

Thomas Anderson


Destiny

Around about the time the population of Zion grew enough to be considered a threat by the machines, one of the pod-grown humans would be embedded with an important source code. This code allowed them to have supernatural abilities beyond any hacker or program within the Matrix.

Thomas Anderson (Neo) was the Chosen One. His destiny was to lead him to the source where with his unique code would be able to reset the Matrix and start the process over again. Neo however went against his re-written destiny and chose love over his destiny.

Neo would then travel to the Machine City in the real world to help them confront the problem they couldn't solve, Smith, and in essence completing his destiny by returning to the source, while also securing peace between Zion and the Machines.

6. Edward Furlong
John Connor


Destiny

In a harsh and desolate future, humanity is an endangered species. The machines rose up against us and destroyed our civilisation. But there was one man who taught us to fight, to storm the wire of the camps, to smash those metal motherfuckers into junk. He turned it around. He brought us back from the brink. His name is Connor. John Connor.

The machines and their central AI, Skynet, were utterly devastated thanks to John Connor's spirit and legacy. The only way they could stop this resistance was to eradicate him from existence. The machines would send back Terminators to try and kill John in the past when he would be most vulnerable. The resistance, knowing of this, would send back their own soldiers to combat these efforts. One of these soldiers was John's father and so the cycle began.

7. Sarah Michelle Gellar
Buffy Summers


Destiny

Buffy was a regular girl like any other. She went to school, hung out with friends and even showed up to class once in a while! However, what she didn't know was that she would become the Slayer. She would be called upon when her predecessor was killed.

Buffy was granted superhuman abilities to battle the forces of evil. Near the end of the first season a prophecy was to be fulfilled and as a result Buffy was killed by the Master. The next slayer was called upon....but wait! Buffy was resuscitated by Xander! So now there are two Slayers, which had never happened before.

Along the line, Buffy would give her life to stop an inter-dimensional portal from opening and destroying the world. She was laid to rest in one of the cemeteries she patrolled...but wait! She was resurrected by her friends! Buffy came back a little off, not entirely human...this is quite confusing. Buffy would eventually find the Scythe which the Scooby Gang would use to activate all the potential Slayers around the world. So how is she special again?

I do so love destinies! All of that nobility and honor in the name of a higher fate just makes me wish I was born in another world. Superb list!

LOVE IT! Love discussion about 'destiny', is there anything more inspirational. Two me destiny and fate have often throughout history been 'incorrectly' loped in together with one another leading uneducated people to believe they are one in the same?...

If you'll check out my lists http://www.listal.com/list/my-1001-see-before-ascension and http://www.listal.com/list/2-movies-have-affected-my you'll probably notice the subject of 'destiny' has taken center stage in my current goals and aspirations as well as spiritual life path. So this list is pretty much 'candy' to me at the present moment.

To me, fate is a form of 'time/space bondage' locking you FOREVER in a mental karmic prison where you THINK you are unable to escape until one Mr. Albert Einstein proved that time quite frankly doesn't exist like we THINK it does? -Destiny is the polar opposite, it may 'sound' like the same thing because it's something PULLING YOU FORWARD, but it's something you obviously desire because it contains RESISTANCE! This is the universe stripping away the OLD YOU, destiny drives you to somewhere NEW and it about beginning. Fate drives you to the end and holds you prisoner. We should always always strive towards our DESTINY in life, it's the one with no limits!
