* ''[[Literature/TheIcelandicSagas Laxdæla saga]]'': The young Gudrun has a series of dreams in which she wears a cap she tears off, a silver bracelet which drops into a fjord, a gold bracelet which breaks, and a helm which drops into a fjord. Asking her relative Gest, a clairvoyant, to interpret the dreams, she receives the answer that she will have four husbands of which she will divorce the first, the third will be killed, the second and the fourth will drown. All this comes true.

* In ''Literature/StarWarsKenobi'', Ben has a recurring dream in which, as someone else, he sees the world through what seems like a Tusken mask, and hears a scream. He thinks it's a metaphor for his exile, staying away from the Empire's subjugation of the galaxy. Later, though, it seems clear that Ben is seeing [[spoiler:Orrin Gault's FateWorseThanDeath, being press-ganged into the Tusken tribe]], and so he's comfortable not intervening when [[spoiler:Orrin discovers his secret, since he won't be able to tell anyone]].

* In Creator/AnneMcCaffrey's ''To Ride Pegasus'', many pre-cogs manifest their powers in their sleep. Unlike most predictions, these can be averted if only you identify the situation. This can be interesting because while they actually see the event, they see no more than a person standing there would; they must work back to identifying locations, people, times, etc.
