Usually female, small and fey in [[CreepyChild a disturbing way]], the '''Oracular Urchin''' knows more about the future -- or the present -- than she really should. Sometimes her mysterious comments are clear, but usually they just confuse matters until everything's over, and maybe not even then. When things come to a head, the OracularU rchin may be the one who explains Everything (either explicitly or [[CrypticConversation by implication)]] to the hero -- and to the audience.

Related to the WaifProphet, but the Oracular Urchin is not usually ill in any way -- just ... different and strangely informed.

informed and, usually, very oddly plugged-in. Once you have enough background to parse what they say.

* In ''Film/{{Morgan}}'', Morgan has a bit of a precognitive ability that lets her glean information about people without having spoken to them. Lee Weathers takes it in stride but the psychoanalyst Dr. Shapiro appears to lose his cool over it and drives Morgan to the breaking point emotionally...which ends up getting him killed.

* Rei Ayanami from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' is a borderline OracularUrchin -- she is fey and clearly knows far more of what's going on than most of the other characters, but she provides no revelations to anyone -- including, for a long time, the audience.

* 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.
