** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', Queen Mikoto of Hoshido foresaw her own death (though not ''exactly'' how she'd perish), but carried on being her usual self. She soon died in an HeroicSactifice to save her child, the PlayerCharacter, few later.

* Soviet gymnast and 1978 World Champion Elena Mukhina[[note]]see her full story on the [[TrainingFromHell/RealLife Training From Hell: Real Life page]][[/note]], while training for the 1980 Olympic Games, told her coaches that she would surely break her neck attempting the complicated roll-out floor skill the Thomas salto. Two weeks before the Games and less than a month after her twentieth birthday, Elena's prediction came true; the exhausted, starved, overworked, and still-injured gymnast underrotated the salto, snapping her neck and rendering her instantly quadriplegic. She died of complications from her accident in 2006. She later said that her first thought as she lay on the floor was, [[TearJerker "Thank God, I won't have to go to the Olympics."]]

* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' has this happen twice in different games:
** In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War]]'', Father Claud knew that he'd die either at the Battle of Barhera or around that time. He decided that, since he couldn't change his fate, he'd rather use the time he had left fighting against the Lopto Sect.

** The chieftains of the Bleeding Hollow clan undergo a ritual in which they carve out one of their eyes and receive a vision of their death. Knowing the circumstances of their death they can lead without fear even against foes that would usually concern them. Kilrogg in particular anticipated that final battle.
*** Kilrogg grants a vision of how players will die as part of his fight: Outnumbered against an endless army of Burning Legion demons as Azeroth burns, dying as Khadgar casts his last spell. The player is empowered by the vision as it is proof that Kilorgg will not kill them.

A specific variant of {{Foreshadowing}}, in which a character has foreseen the circumstances under which he or she is going to die, whether by natural means or foul play. The character may also predict when and where the exact time and location of their death will be.

* In ''Videogame/KingdomsOfAmalurReckoning'', Agarth realized being a Fateweaver wasn't all it was cracked up to be when he foresaw his own ultimate fate of being the main ingredient of an ettin's stewpot. He got ''very'' drunk that day. When he accompanies the Fateless One during an early quest, they encounter an ettin. Agarth tells the Fateless One to go on ahead, convinced that this is the day he will die. The Fateless One then demonstrates the power to ScrewDestiny by slaying the ettin, averting Agarth's fated end.
