* Devera, the brown-eyed little girl from (this is not hyperbole) every book Steven K. Z. Brust has ever written. Her ''lack'' of appearance in ''[[Literature/{{Dragaera}} Five Hundred Years After]]'' is even lampshaded in the "Author interview" at the end. A full tally of her appearances may be found [[http://mindstalk.net/brust/devfaq.html here]]; 'ware spoilers. This is what happens when a part-goddess little girl with TimeTravel powers is allowed to run around loose.

* The plague ridden child in Mel Gibson's ''Film/{{Apocalypto}}'' who accosts the slavers as they bring their captives in for sacrifice.
** While female, small, fey, and creepy, this child is probably more of a WaifProphet due to her obvious illness.

* Carim Gracia of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', who has the ability to magically create prophecies for the near future once a year. Unfortunately, the prophecies come in the dead Ancient Belka language, record things at random, ''and'' are written in poem form that can be interpreted in many ways, making them [[CrypticConversation rather cryptic once translated into something readable]]. Carim lampshades how helpful this trope tends to be by saying that her ability is about as useful as a fairly accurate horoscope due to the mentioned factors. Still, both TheChurch and TheFederation treat these prophecies seriously since, hey, they're ''still'' glimpses into the future.

They seem to know astoundingly much about Karyl, and even while Aphrodite makes an effort to explain herself away, the other woman is simply mysterious.

* In Creator/DanAbnett's TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Literature/GauntsGhosts novel ''Straight Silver'', Gaunt and Beltayr meet with a strange woman in the [[TheLostWoods woods]], who says she is Elinor Zaker, a retired Battle Sister, and gives Gaunt intimations of the future -- vague, because she explicitly tells him that she can not tell him too much. Gaunt sees her scars and concludes that she suffered brain damage. She also lends him a car, which vanishes after they have gotten where they are going. As do its keys. And they can't find her chapel afterwards. And her name proves to be that of a woman who died millenia earlier.
