* A red comet appears in the sky early in Creator/GeorgeRRMartin's ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' series -- unusually, the characters aren't universally filled with dread; several of them decide the comet shows divine favour for their side (Daenerys thinks it's a sign that will lead her khalasar to safety; the Lannisters believe it is a sign of good fortune for their family and especially Joffrey; etc.) At the end of ''A Feast for Crows'' it seems to be confirmed that [[spoiler:it's a part of the prophecy of the Prince Who Was Promised]].

* In ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', such a comet indicates the imminent [[spoiler: fulfillment of Jim Cook's prophecy]]. For bonus points, it appears to ''turn'' and fly straight towards [[spoiler: him]] several times, causing alarm, though [[spoiler: this is only an illusion, albeit part of the prophecy, and the comet is never the real threat.]]
