* Teru Miyanaga, the elder sister of the main protagonist of ''Manga/{{Saki}}'' has an inherent ability called the Shoumakyou. This ability allows her to see the true nature of a person, and when applied to the game of Mahjong, functions as a way for her to know the opponent's main strengths and weaknesses in playing. This ability is so effective, it has allowed her to play around and counter an opponent who can see one turn ahead in the future.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII'' features Hein, a boss that changes his weakness frequently throughout the battle. Theoretically, this fight should be made considerably easier through either constant use of the Libra spell (of which you only have a few shots at that point in the game) or use of, as the game suggests several times, the Scholar class, [[PlotTailoredToTheParty for which this is a free action]]. In practice however, instead of wasting a turn scanning and then having Hyne change his barrier again before you act next turn, it tends to be easier to just throw spells of different elements at him so you're sure one of them hits his weakness.

** Midna in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' can give some limited information on a few enemies, like Darknuts and Shadow Beasts. Unfortunately, she offers the weakest hint system of all the 3D games in the series.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', one character in the heroes' group always has a Persona that, while not used in combat, can be used to scan enemies for strengths and weaknesses. In ''Persona 3'', the scanning ability takes a few turns to complete but provides a complete readout of the enemy's abilities and how each element affects it. In ''Persona 4'', the scanning ability is instant, but it only provides HP and MP of enemies you've previously defeated and will not show elemental strengths and weaknesses unless you've attempted to attack the enemy with that element at least once.

* ''[[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona Persona]]'': In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', installments from ''VideoGame/Persona3'' onward, one character in the heroes' group always has a Persona that, while not used in combat, can be used to scan enemies for strengths and weaknesses. In ''Persona 3'', the scanning ability takes a few turns to complete but provides a complete readout of the enemy's abilities and how each element affects it. In ''Persona 4'', ''VideoGame/Persona4'', the scanning ability is instant, but it initially only provides HP and MP of enemies you've previously defeated and will not show elemental strengths and weaknesses unless you've attempted to attack the enemy with that element at least once.once; you'll have to raise your navigator's social link if you want to reveal a new enemy's elemental affinities (and the best version of that is only available in the ''Persona 4 Golden'' remake). Halfway through ''VideoGame/Persona5'', the scan will only reveal the enemy's skills and potential item drops, but raising Makoto's Confidant will allow you to see if an enemy will Null, Repel, or Drain an attack before you use it.
