* Discussed in ''Series/BuffytheVampireSlayer'' - in the episode ''Earshot'', Buffy temporarily gains telepathic powers, and Giles suggests that this could improve her fighting skills by letting her foresee attacks in battle. Subverted in that Buffy is way more interested in using her power to [[MundaneUtility cheat in English class]], and within a few hours [[PowerIncontinence the ability has]] [[AMindIsATerribleThingToRead completely overpowered her]] to the point that she can barely stand, let alone fight.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11736421/1/A-RWBY-Zanpakuto A RWBY Zanpakuto]]'', Tsukishima's Book of the End lets him read his opponent's traits and memories like a book, and predict a few seconds into the future by "reading ahead". Tatsuki beats him by fighting on instinct, allowing her to attack too fast for him to react, ending up with her giving him a GroinAttack. She then swipes his Book of the End and gains this ability.
-->'''Tatsuki''': You might be able to see a few moments into the future, but that's not far enough. You should have had the foresight to wear a cup, eh?

** Her mother, LadyShiva, also has it, though for her it's from her decades of experience and complete mastery of martial arts.
* Rose Wilson aka Ravager has this, though it's a bit unclear as to how. At first, it was stated to be psychic in nature, then later retconned into being a side-effect of the super soldier serum she took which allows her to anticipate moves based on body language, similar to Cass, above. It's likely that her father, Deathstroke, has the ability as well, due to taking the same serum decades ago, but it's not really talked about as much with him.

* General Buford makes a speech about what will happen at Film/{{Gettysburg}} if he allows the Confederates to take the high ground before the Union infantry arrives. Though this is due to being GenreSavvy as a result of decades of experience as a professional soldier rather than any superpower, he does reference the trope.

* There are multiple ways to achieve this in ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple''. With the ''Inner Eye,'' a martial artist memorizes the rhythm of the opponent's movements, and can predict where the opponent will move and attack, making their attacks nearly always accurate. The Ryusei Seikuken technique reduces the size of a Seikuken to a thin layer over the skin, letting the user dodge with just the smallest movements, however to the enemy it looks like their mind is being read.

And the Attack Trail Fight, where you form a trail of all possible attack patterns the opponent may take, having, attempting to read the next trails and block them. Needless to say, all three are very high level techniques.

* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', the BigBad of the Vandenreich arc Yhwach's signature power, "A of the Almighty", lets him see into the future. He uses this to predict his opponents' techniques and create appropriate countermeasures on the fly.
