* The boss Soulcage in ''Videogame/FinalFantasyIX'' uses this as a boast shortly before you fight it, although you end up killing it anyway and proving its prediction wrong.
-->'''Soulcage:''' I have seen the end of my thousand year life, and it is not now. You cannot stop me. It is futile even to try.

* William Bishop, the PlayerCharacter of ''VideoGame/AceCombatAssaultHorizon'', has been plagued by recurring {{Psychic Dreams|ForEveryone}} of his own death for months by the time the game starts -- in fact, the very first level is actually this specific dream, where he is shot down over Miami by a RenegadeRussian plane with a sharkmouth paintjob on it. [[spoiler:Subverted late in the game, when the scene Bishop dreamed of actually occurs in reality and he is saved in the last moment by his wingman TakingTheBullet for him.]]

*** Chromie reveals this knowledge of their death is shared with the rest of his flight: They all know the time of their 'true' death, and use it as a measuring stick for how bad the flow of time has been disturbed; if they find a timeline where they die sooner or later than intended, they know something has been tampering with time in an unacceptable manner.

[[AC:Tabletop Games]]
* In the background of ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'', both the [[SuperPrototype Primarchs]] with precognition had visions of their own deaths long before they happened, and both let them happen. The [[WingedHumanoid angelic Sanguinius]] willingly went to fight his traitorous brother Horus despite knowing he couldn’t win as he saw it as his duty. The [[TheDreaded brutal Konrad Curze]] on the other hand let the Imperial Assassin M'Shen kill him as he believed that doing so would justify his vicious and heretical actions.

** 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.
** 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.
