* [[WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGalaxyRangers Niko]] can usually handle whatever she senses through her PsychicPowers. There have been a few occasions where it sucker-punches her, though. The best example was in "New Frontier" where she tries to find Eliza. As she's reaching out to find Eliza's presence, she runs straight into the [[BigBad Queen]]...who is ''much'' more powerful and forcefully ejects her. It causes Niko to briefly black out and fall over the console, freaking Zachary out.

* Literary example of the interrupted prophecy type: in the Weis and Hickman ''[[TheDarkswordTrilogy Darksword Chronicles]]'', the protagonist is the subject of an ancient prophecy that states that he will bring about [[TheEndOftheWorldAsWeKnowIt the doom of the world]]. It turns out the prophet died before he could speak the last line, and in the third book the prophet's ghost reveals the last clause -- [[spoiler:"... or its salvation."]]

* Zhegorz Fiavrus, from TamoraPierce's ''[[Literature/CircleOfMagic Cold Fire]]'' and ''[[Literature/CircleOfMagic The Will of the Empress]]'', can't see the future, but can see distant images on the wind. This has slowly driven him mad, and he gets very agitated when he sees anything important: "Game pieces, game pieces! See the pretty game pieces, the ladies and the mages, two in one, a nice long game of capture the pieces!"

* ''VisionOfEscaflowne'' is a rare example of the FaintingSeer as ''the main character''. OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Hitomi Kanzaki often uses tarot cards to read people's futures (and she once receives a nasty surprise when she gets phantom-attacked by the Death card). She also makes a chilling discovery later when she finds out that [[spoiler:her anxiety about the future is actually causing the worst-case scenarios she fears to come true]].
