** Subverted by Gladriel's prophesy regarding Frodo coming to realise that "the quest will claim his life," [[spoiler: while he survives, on his return and having been through so much, he cannot go back to the life he once knew, instead leaving to the Gray Havens]].

He assumes this means Jack will eventually surpass him and earn the right to use the portal that he's guarding. [[spoiler:Aku destroys the portal and the Guardian before Jack can surpass him, but the samurai eventually uses one created by Ashi in order to fulfill his destiny.]]

** The Oracle tells Neo that he is not the One, he has to decide that either he or Morpheus will die and he seems to be waiting for another life. While this discourages Neo at first, technically all of this comes true: when Neo makes a choice to go into the matrix to save Morpheus, he starts to bend rules of the matrix [[spoiler: but is not yet the One. He is gunned down by Smith (= he is killed instead of Morpheus) but resurrects himself (= waiting for another life) to finally be the One (= the prophecy for Morpheus that the One will return).]]

* One episode of ''Series/StargateSG1'' had Jonas Quinn develop precognition. At one point, he has a vision of Carter being wheeled away on a stretcher. He tells the others about this and they decide to keep Carter at base for the next mission. While the next mission is happening off-world, Jonas learns there was an accident on base and Carter was injured. Cue her being wheeled past him on a stretcher exactly like he saw in his vision.
* An episode of ''Series/PerfectStrangers'' had a seer who predicted that Larry would sit on a sheep, eat a golden ring, and find death at the door. He dismisses this until he does sit on a sheep (Balki's stuffed animal Dimitri) and eat a golden ring (a plain doughnut). Right after death doesn't make the prescribed appearance, he and Balki sit down to watch television. When they turn on the television, we hear the theme song from ''Series/TheTwilightZone''.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones''. Part of the arc for Stannis Baratheon is his and Mellisandre's belief that he is the "Prince That Was Promised", someone who is the world's MessiahArchetype sent by the [[CrystalDragonJesus Lord of Light]] to restore order to the world and become a king. However, [[spoiler: Stannis is betrayed by his army and killed after [[MoralEventHorizon sacrificing his daughter]] for a miracle. So far, the closest candidate is Jon Snow because his mother Lyanna made her brother, Ned Stark, promise to take care of him.]]

* I can't believe none of you guys have mentioned the Witch King's prophecy from Literature/TheLordOfTheRings: [[https://i0.wp.com/www.starkafterdarkonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/djchnE_62152eb0c5_4.jpg]]

* {{Invoked|Trope}} in ''Aquila'': there is no way to stop a new god from rising in Rome, but Ficus realises said god need not necessarily be [[TheCaligula Nero]]; for example, the [[{{Jesus}} carpenter god]] worshipped by that new religious group with a thing for fish seems like a nice enough chap.

*** Quite a few of his prophecies of oncoming death and resurrection are of the "bizarre metaphor" variety, such as saying the Temple will be destroyed and he will rebuild it in three days. (The Temple in question is his body, not the big building.)

** But played straight with the Lord of the Nazgûl: "not by the hand of man will he fall". Of course, [[spoiler: he is killed by a Hobbit.]]

** In Film/{{Logan}}, [[spoiler: Logan actually dies, but Yukio's prophecy still held true for that occasion, as he dies lying on his back, with his and his enemies' blood all over him, and holding his heart figuratively in his hand with him holding the hand of his "daughter", [[Laura/''ComicBook/{{X-23}}''X-23]], as he dies. ]]
