* The title character of ''ComicBook/{{Iznogoud}}'' goes to see Kmeer the psychic in the story "The Magic Calendar". She is drawn to look like a stereotypical Romani traveller, complete with caravan and anachronistic horn-rimmed glasses to emphasise her ability to see into the future. She anticipates everything Iznogoud says before he says it (to his ever-growing frustration), and when she agrees to sell him the title artifact (which allows the user to travel forward and backward through time by tearing off and gluing on pages), she gives him three dirhems in change, telling him their haggling session will result in their agreeing on a price of 500,397 dirhems, and he will hand over 500,400 dirhems. Iznogoud decides not to argue and simply hands over the money.

* Sailor Mars/Rei Hino's [[ThePsychoRangers counterpart]] in the second arc of the manga, Koan, impersonates one of this for a school festival, reading only horrible, doomed futures, contrasting with a similar stand run by Rei, a girl with actual [[{{Seers}} future seeing abilities]]. In the last season of the anime Rei herself pretends to be one for another festival, but in a more positive fashion since she offered more of moral support and helpful advices rather than inventing stuff.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', the mechanical version is upgraded to a robotic version. One episode she appeared in is "The Honking" where she advises Bender on how to remove his curse of the were-car. She, however, appears to be more of a source of information than an actual seer. She once even says [[PhonyPsychic "What am I,]] ''[[PhonyPsychic psychic]]''?
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'', Garfield gets cursed by one of these so he becomes a monster under moonlight; he's later cured and he gets his revenge by [[HoistByHisOwnPetard using the gypsy's book against her]] and turning her into "the most horrible thing imaginable"... which turns out to be a [[AcceptableTargets mime]].

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' goes with the theory that Professor Trelawney is a much more gifted seer than she or anyone else realises - not only is her Second Prophecy completely accurate, her Tarot Reading in chapter 66 has similarly come to pass. While some of the cards and their interpretations could simply be smart cold reading, some of them are disquietingly accurate, greatly disturbing Harry.

Her main problem, as Draco observes, is that she not only tries to force her gift, but pickle it.

* Courtney Milan's ''Proof By Seduction'' features one as the heroine, in a BelligerentSexualTension rivalry with a scientist who wishes to disprove her supposed "gifts." (She's using her perceptiveness about people, rather than any real supernatural gift, and is portrayed sympathetically even though she later [[spoiler: decides to give up her fortune-telling, feeling that she is taking advantage of emotionally vulnerable clients]]).

* The third installment of ''VideoGame/TheRoom'' has a mechanical fortune teller named Maggie that's actually powered by [[spoiler:her actual soul, who was imprisoned by [[BigBad the Craftsman]] after she disobeyed him.]] She's [[AndIMustScream aware enough to know what's happening around her]], and even leaves a [[CouldntFindAPen cryptic warning on the glass]] at one point. But she can't help you beyond that unless you solve the extra puzzles in Grey Holm before the ending.
