* ''Anime/{{Mai-HiME}}'', episode 2: Haruka tells Yukino that she ''doesn't'' trust Mai, and tries to convince her skeptic friend that Mai's arrival by ferry is somehow connected to the weirdness in their school. [[spoiler:It turns out Haruka's suspicion is well-founded, as Mai's [=HiME=] abilities kick in later that night while [[AndYourLittleDogToo defending Takumi from an Orphan]].]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''LightNovel/AnotherNote'', Naomi Misora meets up with an "unprivate detective" named Rue Ryuzaki. She feels like something is "off" about Rue, but she can't quite figure out ''what'' other than that he seems to be something of a CloudCuckoolander. Because of this, she doesn't ''like'' Rue, but [[TeethClenchedTeamwork agrees to work with him and humor him to solve the case]]. It turns out that [[spoiler: she was right to think poorly of Rue, because ''he'' is actually the SerialKiller they've been looking for, Beyond Birthday.]] This makes her grabbing of the IdiotBall [[spoiler: and resulting death]] in the ''Manga/DeathNote'' series proper all the more jarring.

* In ''7th Sea'', Scryers (male and female alike) can, on top of a buttload of other advantages, automatically tell if another character is a Hero, Villain, or Scoundrel just by looking at them. That's just one of the reasons why most ''7th Sea'' {{Game Master}}s don't usually allow the Sophia's Daughters in their games...

Justified in that he is an amnesiac and is mostly unaware of what he knows and must rely on his gut. In the second fil his gut feeling helps him identify an assassin just by the car he's driving and his overall look. In the third film he guides a man through a crowded train station crawling with CIA agents who want to capture/kill him, avoiding the cameras and knowing just when to move and when to sta put.

* In ''Film/DraftDay'', the Browns general manager Sonny Weaver has a lot of doubts whether he should draft Bo Callahan or not. Callahan is a very talented quarterback, but he has some personality issues. His co-worker and girlfriend Ali tells him not to listen to other people, but to do on what he thinks is the best. Sonny Weaver also tells the GM from the Jaguars literally that [[spoiler: he didn't draft Callahan because of a gut feeling.]]

* On {{Lost}} the entire first season, Rose calmly asserts to the other survivors that her husband Bernard was alive and that she can feel it despite Bernard being in the tail section that separated during the crash. Early in season two she is proven correct.

* Several people use this as a basis for their treatment of Baltar in ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'', most notably Laura Roslin but also Adama and Tigh. All three judge him to be shifty, eccentric and irritating at best and their gut feelings are that he cannot be trusted. All of which is perfectly true. Roslin actually describes using her gut feeling when Baltar is accused of aiding the Cylon attack, [[spoiler: which he did do, just not as intentionally or personally as he was being framed as doing]], although her feeling is only partially correct in that she believes him to be the kind of man who would[[spoiler: intentionally sell out his people before it was a life or death decision for him, when in fact he was just a dupe]].

* "Warehouse13": Pete and Myka were chosen for the team based on their inverse personalities. Myka bases her work on cold, calculating facts and logic. Pete, however, goes by feelings and intuition. This is shown in his distrust of [[spoiler: HG Wells]]

* Betty, from ''DeadLikeMe'' had a lightbulb that went off in her stomach whenever she looked at someone. This lightbulb would immediately tell her what kind of person they were, although the types they were sorted into were or seemed frivolous, such as: Mouth-breather people or talks-on-airplane people.

* In the cop movie ''{{Heat}}'', AlPacino's character and RobertDeNiro's have a bit of this towards each other. De Niro's character, the crook, stops in the middle of a heist because he can sense that Pacino is watching him. Later, Pacino's investigation team is following De Niro's crooks as they seem to be casing a job. Everyone on the team is puzzled, as there seems to be nothing there worth stealing, until after a few seconds Pacino reads De Niro's mind and figures out that what De Niro and company have actually done is lure the police into exposing their surveillance team.

* Barton Keyes in ''DoubleIndemnity'' can always detect a phony insurance claim by gut feeling, personified as a "little man" who lives in his stomach and ties knots in it when something is wrong with a claim. Subverted in that he apparently fails to get any bad feelings about the guy who actually committed the murder, and almost pins it on an innocent man instead.

* [[BurnNotice Michael Weston]]. In an early episode, he senses that a target is attempting to BluffTheImpostor, (with Michael being the impostor) and instinctively responds in just the perfect way. He later admits to Sam that it was pure luck that it worked.

* Brennan from ''{{Bones}}'' comments on FBI partner Booth's frequent use of his gut, as opposed to her "facts and logic" method. Booth's skill as an agent come from his judge of character and even some uses of number 3.
* Horatio Caine in ''CSIMiami''. In fact, one wonders why the Miami-Dade police department even needs crime scene investigators, given the guilty party always turns out to be the person H doesn't like.

* [[ThoseTwoGuys Issei]] of ''FateStayNight''. He's right about Saber, the main heroine, being a good person, even though he only just met her. He's right about Rin not being what she appears and he's right about Shinji not being a good person. On the other hand, he's wrong about Rin being ''evil'' (she's not), the man he considers to be a brother is an [[SadistTeacher amoral teacher]], and he thinks Caster is a good person. [[spoiler:She kills him in one Bad End.]]
