* Parodied in a RunningGag ''AHDotComTheSeries'', where (from the end of Season 4 onwards) OnceAnEpisode the character Landshark will make a ridiculous (and accurate) leap of "deduction". When asked how on earth he knew that, he shrugs and replies "Hey, I'm British!"

* Used by Richard, in ''SwordOfTruth''. Repeatedly. The most egregious instance is in ''Naked Empire'', where he all-of-a-sudden knows the recipe for the antidote to the poison that's killing him, with no indication of ''how'' he knows it.

* In Marvel's ''{{Guardians of the Galaxy}}'' comics, the character of Starhawk, refered to himself as "One who knows", using this as a rationale for suggesting courses of action that were often contrary to the team's current goals. Of course he'd turn out to be right. We find out later it's because [[spoiler: he's stuck in a loop where his soul reincarnates into his own infant body, so he's lived through the events multiple times and simply remembers the correct path to take.]]

* PlayedForLaughs in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls''. Twilight Sparkle is about to [[InternalReveal explain everything]] to the alternate versions of her friends from Equestria, when Human!Pinkie Pie does it for her by blurting out a rapid-fire summation of the entire plot of the movie.
-->'''Twilight Sparkle:''' How did you know all that?!\\
'''Pinkie Pie:''' Just a hunch!

* Subversion: In the 2005 remake of ''Film/TheCabinetOfDrCaligari'', this is of the hero's most frequently used lines. It turns out that [[spoiler: [[CuckoosNest he's nuts.]]]]

* Justified for Saracen Rue in ''Literature/SkulduggeryPleasant'', since he has an adept ability that grants him knowledge of things he shouldn't know about, but not other things. What exactly this power is and on what basis knowledge is granted to him is his most closely guarded secret.

* In ''TransformersTheMovie'', Hot Rod says he "just has this feeling" that the Autobot Matrix of Leadership will help them defeat [[PlanetEater Unicron]]. [[spoiler:It does.]]

to:

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender:'' The third episode has Aang stating as much on identify a statue of his predecessor Roku, despite the statue not telling anyone who it is, and having no ability to call on any previous Avatars at that point.

* Constant in DominicDeegan. Between the main character being a seer (who's in the business of doing this), his main method of saving the day being finding out what's going on and making sure the information gets to the right people if it takes psychic implantation, and Fate Itself and various other mighty forces weighing in periodically, this happens all the damn time. Occasionally it is wrong, or at least invokes FromACertainPointOfView. Though not Dominic. Only his ''interpretations'' are ever off.
