*** There's also another version of the skill dubbed "Mind's Eye (False)". While it confers similar abilities as the (True) version, [[SpiderSense it is purely instinctual and cannot be gained through experience]]: You either have it, or you don't. Two Servants in particular have this skill: Berserker (whose madness keeps him from remembering his experience in life) and Assassin ([[spoiler:who as a fictional hero, never had the chance to earn experience in life]]).

In a fight, Assassin was able to tell how long Saber's invisible sword was after observing how she was holding it and feeling the wind from her sword swings.

* [[YuYuHakusho Yusuke Urameshi]] is better at this than one would expect from your average street punk. Of note, he mastered Genkai's Spirit Wave technique after his first use of it, correctly deduced which of his friends was a doppelganger based on their personalities and traits, fought on even ground with the world's greatest martial artist after only one prior battle with him, and [[spoiler:found the weak point of Yomi's DeflectorShield technique, using this opportunity to bring a fight with a demon several times more powerful than him to a near draw]].

*** Windu also notes that during the [[Film/AttackoftheClones Battle of Geonosis]], he sensed that for a brief moment the shatterpoint of the whole war was Count Dooku. Had he jumped up to the balcony quickly enough, he could've killed Dooku and stopped the war before it even began...but would've died in the process because Jango Fett would've shot him in the back. But by the time Windu had worked all this out, it was already too late and Dooku escaped. And afterward, killing Dooku was no longer the shatterpoint.

Of course, [[PlotArmor Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Padme would've died along with Mace]].

* Franchise/SherlockHolmes has always had shades of this, but the [[Film/SherlockHolmes 2009 movie]] makes it explicit by showing his analysis, step by step, of how to beat the living shit out of an opponent. The 2011 sequel, ''[[Film/SherlockHolmesAGameOfShadows A Game of Shadows]]'' takes this even further with Holmes and Moriarty deadlocked in an Awesome by Analysis duel ''in their minds'' before a single punch is thrown.

*** "The best swordsman in the world doesn't need to fear the second best swordsman in the world; no, the person for him to be afraid of is some ignorant antagonist who has never had a sword in his hand before; he doesn't do the thing he ought to do, and so the expert isn't prepared for him; he does the thing he ought not to do; and often it catches the expert out and ends him on the spot." - MarkTwain

** Cracked did [[http://www.cracked.com/article_19664_6-counterintuitive-tricks-to-beating-popular-game-shows.html an article]] on how to win game shows that boils to this ''exactly'' this trope. Turned out that even beating ''Jeopardy!'' - allegedly a game completely based around knowing "obscure" trivia - is not a matter of memorizing every trivial fact ever, but rather, to know which parts of ''general knowledge'' trivia you are weak in... and do a bit of really casual reading on ''just'' those areas. The man who figured this out, Roger Craig, did so by feeding hundreds of hours' worth of ''Jeopardy!'' questions into a computer to put together statistics on the kind of questions you're likely to get asked, and then had it spit it out as a graph. Then he proved his theory was right by using said graph to study and subsequently win the game. Twice. Including beating the one-day record and ''then'' winning a [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome quarter million dollars in the Tournament of Champions]].

Akane and Shampoo show this in a later chapter of DesperatelySeekingRanma. It results in Akane screwing over some crooks before they can even start their heist.

* Several characters in ''KurokoNoBasuke'' do this. Momoi uses it to predict what her team's opponents will do in games, while Aida uses it to analyze and improve her own players. Kise also seems to use it in his PowerCopying.
