** [[IllGirl Toki Onjouji]] gained this ability after surviving a near fatal illness when she was younger. Specifically, she could see one turn in the future and with this ability, she became one of Japan's best mahjong players in high school. However, [[CastFromHitPoints using this ability comes at the cost of her stamina.]]

** Charlotte Katakuri, one of the Sweet Commanders of the Big Mom Pirates, has supposedly trained his Kenbunshoku Haki so much that he can actually glimpse slightly into the future. His ability among others makes him one of the most dangerous pirates shown thus far, with a bounty racking up over a billion.

His ability among others makes him one of the most dangerous pirates shown thus far, with a bounty racking up over a billion. In fact, it inspires Luffy to keep fighting Katakuri for the purpose of strengthening his own Kenbunshoku Haki to gain this ability as well.

** A more offensive version of this trope exists in the form of Temporal Divergence, a transmutation spell that only requires a swift action to cast and that allows its caster to foresee the results of two different spells they can cast during their combat round, then cast either of the two spells at the exact target they chose with the exact same result. Due to the unpredictability of many spells that allow saving throws, this can come in handy.

** Cassandra Cain, the second ComicBook/{{Batgirl|2000}} [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower has this]]. They try to justify it via TrainingFromHell, but it doesn't take very well. It's less of a psychic ability and more of the ability to judge her opponents' body language.

* The [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vyrewatch]] in ''VideoGame/RuneScape'' have the ability to predict what move an opponent will make with a normal weapon. This allows them to dodge all attacks, making them immune to all weapons, except the one you make during the quest they're introduced in.

This allows them to dodge all attacks, making them immune to all weapons, except the one you make during the quest they're introduced in. Why? The weapon is a flail, intentionally made so that its movements are so random, the Vyrewatch can't read your mind to see where's it's going.

* The short-lived {{Wolverine}} villain Mr. X (two-time winner of the Least Original Name prize) relied in combat on the fact that he could read people's minds and tell what they were about to do. Oh, and the fact that he was a kung fu master. But it was his ability to predict moves that gave him the edge he needed.
** The problem with Mr. X's ability was that it only let him read his opponents mind, but not to ''understand'' it. Wolverine managed to beat him by flying into a rage that he couldn't process, Amadeus Cho thought in formulas and [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness Big Words]] [[PsychicStatic to confuse him]], [[ComicBook/ImmortalIronFist Iron Fist]] used unpredictable DrunkenBoxing, [[ComicBook/{{Thunderbolts}} Songbird]] hit him with an undodgeable area attack, and ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}} just moved and thought too fast for him to keep up (while [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome mocking Mr. X about how he'll know every attack is coming but be unable to do a damn thing about it]]). Scourge and {{Deadpool}} also give him a hard time by virtue of being insane. Basically, [[VillainDecay after his first couple arcs]], his role in the MarvelUniverse is to be a whipping boy so more popular characters can show off their guile.

* [[Literature/{{Twilight}} Alice Cullen]] uses her clairvoyance against other vampires, both for fighting and playing chess - which leads to a CrowningMomentOfFunny where she and Edward (who has PsychicPowers of his own) play a game of chess in their minds without even touching any of the pieces, whch ends with Alice placing her king on its side to signify her surrender.

* [[Westernanimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012 TMNT 2012]] villain Victor Falco exposes himself to a small amount of [[MutagenicGoo mutagen]] and gets the power to read his enemies' minds. The only way that Donnie can defeat him is to learn Mikey's signature "Fighting without Thinking" technique.

** [[spoiler:Contessa, enforcer for [[BiggerBad Cauldron]]]] plays this a little straighter, by seeing "the path to victory" and following it to completion. Its effective enough she describes her power simply as "I win".
** The Number Man's power is a variation: [[spoiler:instead of ''knowing'' what's going to happen, he can ''predict'' the reigion where the next attack will come from. This means all he has to do is be not there. ''Every time.'']]

Its However, the trope is still not played entirely straight - she isn't exactly able to see into the future, her power just tells her a series of moves she can make to achieve whatever result she's aiming for, but she gets no special insight into ''why'' those steps will work. It's effective enough she describes her power simply as "I win".

* Ikagen from ''Series/UchuuSentaiKyuranger'' has this, dodging attacks without even looking because of his "foresight" and talking about how everyone's fates are revealed to him. [[spoiler: It's all an act. Actually, all the tiny circle designs on his costume are eyes, giving him a 360° field of vision. Once the Kyurangers learned that, attacking him from all sides was enough to take away his advantage]].
