** Min's viewing of Siuan Sanche and Gareth Bryne said that "You must stay close to each other or you will both die." [[spoiler: They end up saving each others lives after an assassin carrying a poisoned needle attacks them (Gareth kills the assassin and Siuan heals him from the poison). Later, during Tarmon Gai'don, they are separated, and just after Min reveals that the viewing is still in effect, Siuan is killed in an attack. The effect of the warder bond makes Gareth go berserk and get killed.]]
** The various viewings of the future beyond the Last Battle, including Min's, qualify as well. They're accurate readings of The Pattern that shapes the past and future. However if the Big Bad wins The Pattern itself will be destroyed, rendering the viewings false.

** The Skeksis massacred the Gelflings to prevent the healing of the Crystal, following the logic that so long as no Gelfling was alive at the conjunction nobody could repair it. Sadly, they missed two.

* A ''SpiderMan'' annual, "Night of the Bend-Sinister", begins with a prophecy from the Book of the Vishanti, stating that once every 60,000 years a mystical conjunction called the Bend-Sinister is possible, and at that time demons will succeed in invading the Earth unless "a mighty sorcerer'' joins forces with "one who both spider and man". Fortunately, Spider-Man and Comicbook/DoctorStrange are old friends...

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', you find a series of tablets in Waterfall that describe a prophecy in which an angel will either free monsterkind from its underground prison or destroy them all. Given the lines you hear during a GameOver, it might refer to the PlayerCharacter. [[spoiler:It actually refers to Asriel, the son of Asgore and Toriel, who turned evil as a result of losing his soul and goes OneWingedAngel in the true ending... he's all set to be the destroyer, but Frisk convinces him to do the other thing.]]

* ''{{Candorville}}'' parodies this during TheReveal. [[spoiler:If a vampiress can produce a {{Dhampyr}}, which Roxanne managed to do thanks to modern fertilization techniques, she'll lose all the standard weaknesses and the need for blood while retaining all the assets. It's prophesied that she'll someday rule over mankind--unless she gives into her still-existing ''[[HorrorHunger desire]]'' for blood, in which case she'll be returned to normal having gained nothing. "[[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking And her APR would shoot up to 29.97%.]]"]]
