I recently finished the King Piccolo sage of the original Dragon Ball series (not to be confused by its more badass sequel, Dragon Ball Z), and something very Dune-ish happened. Goku was trying to find the Ultra Sacred Water somewhere in an icy maze so that he would unlock more of his power to fight King Piccolo, the demonic dark side of a holy alien guardian of Earth. When he earns the right to drink it, he discovers that 13 people have already drunk it, and none of them survived. It's poisonous, like the Water of Life, and it brings a new awareness to the special one who drinks it, like the Water of Life. Goku drinks it, and after some pain, his inner saiyan gorilla monster power was tapped. After surviving, his talking cat mystic master thought to himself "Could he be the one?" I don't recall Goku being prophesied as the equivalent of a Kwisatz Haderach, but he does become stronger, and stronger, and stronger, and super stronger, and then he dies, and his children becomes super stronger and stronger, and then the Earth explodes...
It does get rather Dune-ish in that whenever the hero gets stronger, worse things happen, and the weaker heroes don't even train because they depend upon the hero to do the saving.
Another interesting thing is that the Piccolo saga seems to predate the plot of The Dark Knight Rises. King Piccolo promises all manner of criminals to live life freely.
'...all those who took part in the rise and fall of the Dune project learned how to fall one and one thousand times with savage obstinacy until learning how to stand. I remember my old father who, while dying happy, said to me: "My son, in my life, I triumphed because I learned how to fail."' -Alejandro Jodorowsky
