* Seena from ''VideoGame/LufiaTheLegendReturns'' is a traveling fortune teller with a ChronicHeroSyndrome. Basically, she will make a fortune of almost anything positive, and then drag her partner with her to achieve it. [[spoiler: Or just make it happens, as she's under a disguise of Erim the Sinistral of Death, she has a power to make whatever she has predicted becoming true.]]

* 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.

* In ''VisualNovel/{{Yarudora}} series vol.2: VisualNovel/KisetsuODakishimete'', the main protagonist is the writer of the fortune-telling column of the magazine he works part-time at. He basically has no fortune-telling knowledge and doesn't believe in it, so he writes whatever comes into his mind; yet, from various people's account, his tellings somehow are very accurate, making his column the most popular one of the magazine, to the point that when he writes one of them in a way to meet again Mayu (who strongly believes in this fortune-telling column, without knowing he's the one writing it), ''a ton'' of people searching for love are at the same shop he mentioned, at the same hour, and having ordered the same lucky meal! [[spoiler: Unfortunately for him, it comes back to bite him in the ass ''big time'', when Tomoko, at the peak of her jealousy and distress, reveals to Mayu he's the one writing the column, during the confrontation sequence near the end of the game.]]

* ''VideoGame/TrueLoveJunaiMonogatari'' has one of these popping out sometimes when you send the PlayerCharacter shopping or to the city's downtown. She has a CrystalBall, hides her face under a hoodie, and if you pay her she'll give you cryptic advice about the girls. [[spoiler: In Anze's ending, however, she's hinted to be [[GodWasMyCopilot actually a goddess or a minor deity]] -- probably the one who sent Anze to Earth as a cat for losing her wings.]]

*** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}'' has an Egyptian-themed Fortune Teller that can have "Dragon Fortunes" that gives you random battle variables (more gold dropped, rate increases, etc.), and a Love Fortune that lets you answer questions for random bonuses with characters that can be hooked up with. It's outright stated that she used to be notorious for being very bad at it until [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve the power of rumors changed it]].
*** At the start of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', Igor uses Tarot cards to predict your destiny. Later in the game, it's implied that his assistant Margaret was the one who set up the fortune-teller booth at the school festival (which is pretty much confirmed in ''VideoGame/PersonaQShadowOfTheLabyrinth'').
