* [[MySignificanceSenseIsTingling Clairvoyance]]/Clairaudience -- also called [=TeleSense=], Remote Viewing, Remote Sensing, Extra-Sensory Perception or [=ESP=]. Seeing (and sometimes hearing, or using other senses, including ones that aren't part of the standard package) far-away places, localizing specific persons one concentrates on, usually involves a [[CharmPerson trance state]]; the amount of control over what is seen can vary wildly, depending on the talent and training of the psychic and how the power works in your [[TheVerse 'verse]].

* Zelda is famous for precognitive dreams, at least in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' era. For that matter, Link in ''Ocarina of Time'' could be included in this category for also having a precognitive dream at the very beginning of the game.
** [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaPhantomHourglass Tetra]], as well as Zelda in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheMinishCap The Minish Cap]]'' are able to create a (mostly) one-sided connection to [[TheHero Link]] while being TakenForGranite, allowing them to follow his adventure. Not that this helps him in any kind or way...except for causing NightmareFuel sequences upon loading a saved game file in ''Phantom Hourglass''.

* In ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', psychic abilities are present in the form of Stands; (usually) humanoid ethereal bodies whose powers range from the typical (clairvoyance, pyrokinesis) to the rare (time manipulation, age alteration, preventing truth-telling) to the utterly... well... bizarre (summoning rods --as in the cryptid skyfish--, creating deadly viruses, trapping people and objects in paper). Oh, and apparently anyone and ''everything'' can have Psychic Powers. Infants, an orangutan, a cat, sapient plankton, and ''a group of trees'' have formed their own Stands.

** Kido: Concealment; allows her (and people/objects within a 2 metre radius) to remain undetected by others. The effect is reduced if someone that knows her looks in her direction, or if she touches other people.

* In NISIOISIN's ''LightNovel/{{Zaregoto}}'' novels (at least the first one), Himena Maki is a world-renowned psychic. She's capable of precognition [[spoiler: up to two years after her introduction, at which point she will be brutally murdered]] and mindreading, which she uses to [[{{Jerkass}} insult the main character about his major personal problems every chance she gets]].

** The "psychic paper" used in the new series, which shows someone looking at it whatever identification they think you need. Occasionally it breaks down - it doesn't work on psychics, it occasionally shows things that are rather unconvincing if the user would honestly rather it showed that (like when Jack accidentally gave Rose psychic paper saying he was single and works out) and it completely shorts out when the Eleventh Doctor tries to make it tell someone that he is 'universally recognised as a mature and responsible adult'.

* In the 1970's sci-fi series ''Series/{{UFO}}'' (set [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture in the year 1980]]) Extra-Sensory Perception is a mental condition being treated by mainstream psychiatrists. While most sufferers adjust to its effects, the subject of the episode "E.S.P" cannot cope with knowing [[SpiderSense everything that's going to happen before it occurs]]. He decides to murder two of the leaders of SHADO (blaming them for the death of his wife in a UFO incident) knowing they will be helpless as he can predict their every defensive move before they can make it. [[spoiler:He is only stopped when he realises the aliens have been manipulating him, and so [[SuicideByCop deliberately allows a third SHADO operative to shoot him]]]].

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' had Psycho Mantis. Interestingly enough, while he did have abilities like psychokinesis, precognition, and telepathy (telepathy being [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructed painfully]]), his favourite (or at least creepiest) use of his powers is to [[MetaGuy peer beyond the]] [[NoFourthWall fourth wall]]...

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronByGenius'' has TheDitz Sheen develop vast Psychic Powers and declare AGodAmI when Jimmy boosts his brain to cheat on a test -- which is par for the course for Jimmy's experiments.

* While [[FunctionalMagic magecraft]] is something you can learn with the right requirements, psychic powers in ''{{Nasuverse}}'' are abnormalities that generally only last one generation. That being said, they have [[TheEmpath Empathy]], [[MoreThanMindControl Telepathic Suggestion]], and Teleportation (well, close). One character has the double-whammy of Clairvoyance coupled with [[MindOverMatter Telekinesis]].

* Psychic powers are an integral part of the ''{{Nasuverse}}''. The most notable examples are [[MagicalEye Mystic Eyes]], the most powerful of which only happen as a genetic fluke. The Nanaya clan bred for psychic powers, removing the chance part of the equation. Nanaya Kiri had AuraVision and [[{{Tsukihime}} Shiki]] has the Mystic Eyes of Death Perception on top of an unmentioned lesser type of eyes called 'pure eyes,' which are presumably what distinguishes humans from non humans. [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Rider's]] [[TakenForGranite eyes]] are such an absurdly rare kind that not a single person in the modern age has them and are probably as rare as Shiki's, only better documented.

* In ''Literature/SuperPowereds'', Supers of the Advanced Minds category have mental powers. For example, Mary is powerful telepath and telekinetic ([[spoiler:and a DreamWalker]]), while Alex is an empath and a weaker (but more precise) telekinetic, who claims to be a [[Film/StarWars Jedi]]. Professor Stone's telepathy and telekinesis is on par with Mary's, and she can also manipulate memories. [[spoiler:Alice's mom]] can see possible futures. Others have psychic powers that include entering others' dreams and putting others in dream-like states.
