* Thoth from ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' is a comic book which depicts events in the near future that are guaranteed to happen, but heavily subject to {{Prophecy Twist}}s. The zenith of this occurs when it shows what appears to be bullets going through Jotaro's head, but turns out to be bullets going through [[TheTreacheryOfImages a picture of Jotaro's head]]--so it turns out any of Thoth's prophecies might be depicting ''it's own pages'' in the future.
