* ''VideoGame/DarkCloud'' for the PS2 features a disturbing example dubbed [[https://youtu.be/Hzq2ik0HWP8?t=753 "Pumpkin Panty Fortunetelling"]] that she performs for the protagonist after you rebuild her home and place of business. The fortune-telling is done by a mildly rotund middle-aged lady wearing an open dress who proceeds to leap up high in the air and drop down on top of the protagonist's head, trapping it within her dress. Squick aside, it is 100% accurate for all predictions (and necessary to proceed with the game) and she provides the service to the protagonist free of charge.

* ''[[TabletopGame/WorldOfDarkness Midnight Circus]]'' naturally features fortune tellers among the circus folk; more specifically, the Midnight Circus has a whole ''trio'' of them in the form of the Scribunda Sisters. [[TheHecateSisters Aurora, Merida and Fata]] all offer various services to clients, including dowsing, augury, premonition, divination, and even the occasional vision quest; they've even got a set of [[ThemedTarotDeck Midnight Circus-themed]] [[TarotMotifs tarot cards]]. Out of all the circus folk, [[TokenGoodTeammate they're among the least malevolent]], being among the few surviving worshipers of Cara to remain within the carnival; they're even capable of healing [[MoreThanMindControl Barbs]], which can come in handing if the player's given into the Circus's corrupting influence.

* A mechanical fortune teller named Morgan plays this straight in ''VideoGame/TheLabyrinthOfTime''. He is your main source of clues in the game, but costs a quarter per hint. [[SealedRoomInTheMiddleOfNowhere And his booth is tucked away inside the mirror maze]], which can be fairly hard to reach at times.

* 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.
* Jake Quinlan visits a fortune teller's booth near the end of ''VideoGame/{{Ripper}}'' inside a virtual simulation of Victorian Whitechapel, to activate the weapon he can use against the Ripper there.

Added DiffLines:

* The vocaloid fanfic ''Fanfic/RottingCamellias'' features Mew as one of these, and she appears to know more about the past and the future than any of the other characters. However, her proclamations are of limited help, because her brain is constantly untethered from the present, making it hard for her to focus long enough to give information to anyone.

* Kana Altair from SoulEaterNot, using tarot cards to predict the future and predict the compatibility between [[EquippableAlly weapons]] and meisters.
* A Fortune Teller serves in the anime of ''ChronoCrusade'' to further the plot of a gag episode where Chrono gets a fever...[[spoiler:and to foreshadow the anime's DownerEnding]].
* ''{{xxxHolic}}'' has a chapter where Yuuko demonstrates the difference between "popular" fortune telling and "real" fortune telling. The fake uses information sheets, leading questions, simple common sense, and has no sense of the supernatural (she didn't notice Mokona at all, or of Watanuki's real problems). The real fortune teller notices Mokona right off the bat, proving her supernatural sense, and only asks Watanuki his name for the sake of conversation easier before using a sand dish and her own sensing powers to pinpoint his problems exactly.

* In ''Western Animation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Pinkie Pie sometimes does a fortune-teller act, complete with turban and crystal ball. The joke of it is that Pinkie is a ''genunine'' and fairly powerful precognitive.
