* ''LightNovel/ChivalryOfAFailedKnight'''s protagonist, Ikki has a knack for creating counters by watching and understanding his enemies tactics in seconds. He states that, since nobody would ever actually ''teach'' himm growing up, he had to learn by watching.

* ''Literature/{{Steelheart}}'' has David, an average nerd who has made it his mission to kill [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual Epics]] like the one that killed his father. To that end, he obsessively collects and collates data on them, trying to discover the weaknesses unique to each and every one of them. He's shockingly good at it.

[[spoiler: He even overturns weakness theories and comes up with new, correct ones in the middle of battle several times in the series]].

* Freddie Benson has this as his main power in ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8532906/1/iFightCrimeWithVictorious iFight Crime With Victorious]]'', and it doubles as healing and triples as an AdaptiveAbility. He uses this to diagnose the functions of his own ability and the abilities of his friends.

* In a ''FanFic/HarryPotterAndTheMethodsOfRationality'' [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5782108/64/Harry_Potter_and_the_Methods_of_Rationality omake]] about what it would look like if it was about ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'', Frodo implied that, even if [[EvilCannotComprehendGood Evil Could Not Comprehend Good]] intuitively, that won't keep Sauron from figuring it out this way.

* ''Fanfic/{{Wonderful}}'': [[AntiVillain Lisa]] has the ability to find out information about people or things. She only needed to observe a house-sized tank to discover its strong and weak points.

Added DiffLines:

* Madame Ahnzhelyk Phonda of ''Literature/{{Safehold}}'', later known as Aivah Pahrsahn, is able to deduce that Ahbraim Zhevons, a man she met in the fourth book, and Merlin Athrawes, who she meets two books later, are the same person through a combination of eidetic memory, careful examination of {{Character Tic}}s, and making note of the times Merlin is absent compared to when she knows other members of his "''seijin'' network" appear in the flesh elsewhere. The only true error in her analysis is attributing Merlin's ability to assume different identities to his status as a ''seijin,'' a type of holy man said to posses supernatural powers. Even that is EntertaininglyWrong, since Merlin uses exactly that idea to explain the abilities he has due to being a RidiculouslyHumanRobot, which no Safeholdian could even conceive of on their own due to Safehold's being in a near-millennium long MedievalStasis.

** Yhwach, the King of the Quicies, not only is awesome by application of this trope, his powers do all the work for him. As long as he can see a power, he knows and understands it like the back of his hand. This is achieved with his all seeing eyes. This manifests as three eyes on each eyeball. Presumably, one sees the present, one sees the past, and one sees the future. And, as soon as he understands a power, he cannot be harmed by it. Although, he usually fights with his eyes "closed", so it's possible that he doesn't want to feel like he's cheating until he is actually in mortal danger. Not suprising at all, since it's already established at that point that he's really, really {{Badass}}, and probably has some sort of rigged, personalized [[SuperpowerLottery Superpower Lottery]]. [[spoiler: And he can loan [[PiecesOfGod parts of himself]] to others, so they get a power or two, themselves. Of course, [[PowerAtAPrice for a price]]. When they die, Yhwach [[TheAssimilator claims]] [[YourSoulIsMine them]]. And hence why he's so powerful. Rinse and repeat.]]

** Also from the ''{{Nasuverse}}'' is [[VideoGame/MeltyBlood Sion Atlasia]], and the rest of the Atlas alchemists. Their particular brand of magic involves consciously partitioning their brains to increase "processing" ability, essentially turning each of them into human supercomputers. Sion usually fights by simulating her opponent's attack strategies and predicting every move they make before they make it.
