* In the ''Franchise/StarWars'' books ''Literature/TheLandoCalrissianAdventures'' Rokur Gepta is a powerful illusionist and force-wielder, who also dresses up his abilities with technology and legerdemain. For instance, he tortures one of his subordinates by making him relive his worst memories, then thinks anyone could do the same with the right machinery, which he uses later to do the same to Lando. Or take his intro when he appears as a thundering voice in a great pillar of smoke, and Lando reflects that he probably tossed a smoke bomb into the room.

* ''Film/BedtimeStories'': It's never clear whether the [[spoiler: kids]] control what happens to the main character, or it's just a series of bizarre coincidences and self-fulfilling prophecies.

* ''{{Film/Super}}'': Whether Frank is actually having visions or if he is just hallucinating is never revealed. If he is actually having visions, then it would mean that the Holy Avenger is more than some TV actor playing a role, that he's real, and some sort of actual emissary from God.

* Throughout ''SonsOfAnarchy'', Jax Teller constantly encounters a homeless woman. She seems to show up, right before a life altering act of violence happens. During the final episode of the final season, Jax encounter her for the last time. He questions who she is, but she responds by reminding him that he has a final act to perform. That final act? [[spoiler: Committing suicide by vehicle to [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled prevent from being captured by law enforcement.]] The question remains. Was the encounters just a coincidence, of was she the GrimReaper in human form?]]

* ''Film/IRobot'': Sentient robot Sonny has a constantly recurring "dream" of sorts, in which he sees a man on a hill in front of a crowd of robots, there to free them from slavery. Since robots can't have dreams, Spooner infers that Dr. Lanning programmed a video in Sonny as a clue prior to his murder. This assumption is seemingly proven correct, but than [[spoiler:during the epilogue, Spooner directs Sonny to the hill in his "dream"; when Sonny gets there, he finds himself looking down on the exiled NS-5 robots, in exactly the same way as the man in his dream]]. A coincidence? Or [[DreamingOfThingsToCome something more]]?


Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TakeShelter'' is about a family man who begins having mysterious dreams about some kind of apocalyptic storm, causing him to start obsessively building a shelter behind his house. It's never clear if the dreams are magical/prophetic or not; on one hand, they seem far too vivid and comprehensive to be normal dreams, but on the other, the protagonist eventually admits that his mother had paranoid schizophrenia that he may or may not have inherited. [[spoiler:The ending seems to fall on the "magic" side when the storm actually comes, but there's hints that ThroughTheEyesOfMadness may be at play when this happens...]]

** In ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddysSisterLocation'', what's up with Baby? Is she just an advanced animatronic who somehow became sapient? Or is she [[spoiler:[[HauntedTechnology also possessed?]]]] To say nothing of the other animatronics...

* In Franchise/MassEffect's fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11073051/1/Resurgence Resurgence]]'', [[MassEffect2 part 3]] of the ''Parable'' series, Jane/Shepard often had ''Franchise/SilentHill''-esque nightmares that can all be explained as the symbolism of her various fears and regrets from the suicide mission. But in the last dream she had in that in that part where Jane was chased after by something with unnatural screams and wailing of like an infants, she was saved by two invisible beings whom she described as warm, protective, easy to pleased, and innocent. When she woke up, she just has been puked out from the Baby Reaper after her husband Garrus killed it and later, they discovered that [[spoiler: she's been [[HalfHumanHybrid pregnant]], with ''twins'']]. The author never explain more about it other than the fact that the whole thing was inspired by Silent Hill.

* In ''Manga/PeachGirl'', an otherwise fairly realistic slice-of-life/Drama series, resident AlphaBitch Sae sometimes displays... interesting abilities, such as becoming paper thin, usually when she'd depressed. You'd just chalk this up to artistic effect, except sometimes it ''affects the plot'' - She walks right past a security guard by turning wafer-thin and hiding when he tries to stop her, and he reacts as you really would in that situation. Another time she hides under a box no human could reasonably fit into, by once again, slimming herself down.
