Added DiffLines:
* Gaunt from ''Film/{{Oblivion 1994}}'' is notorious in-univetse for this. He has PsychicPowers that tell him when and where a death will occur and give him a compulsion to go there. He has no idea how or to whom the death will occur, so he's not in a position to really do anything about it.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Dota 2}}'', this trope is Outworld Devourer's role, as his very presence is an omen of doom. Bonus points for his real name being Harbinger.

* In the "Zodd The Immortal" episode of ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'', a badly wounded Hawk Raider escapes the castle and only has enough time to choke out the name of the demon in question before dying, prompting Guts to enter the castle and take him on alone. ** In the manga version of ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'', Guts is perpetually enacting this trope, due to the brand on his neck that attracts demons. * In Nico Robin's backstory from ''OnePiece'', she is finally reunited with her mother after a traumatic childhood raised by abusive relatives. However, her mother is on the run from the Marines for the dangerous knowledge she, and her entire civilization possesses. Guess who followed her... * Kotaro's return in ''MahouSenseiNegima''. * In episode 19 of ''{{Heroman}}'', the government scientist who shows up just minutes ahead of the [[spoiler:tentacle monster]]. * The priestesses in ''FushigiYuugi'' are regarded as this, particularly in ''FushigiYuugiGenbuKaiden''. * In ''BarefootGen'', the day before the atomic bomb is dropped, several characters are at a restaurant discussing the tough times they are going through, and one person has his chopsticks standing up in the middle of his rice bowl. (A big taboo at a Japanese dinner table, because of its resemblance to the incense burners used in funerary rites.)
