** Almost all characters who specialize in Psychic Pokémon are psychic themselves. Kanto Gym Leader [[TheStoic Sabrina]], Johto Elite Four [[VillainousHarlequin Will]], Hoenn Gym Leaders [[HalfIdenticalTwins Tate and Liza]], Unova Elite Four [[IllGirl Caitlin]], Kalos Gym Leader [[{{Seer}} Olympia]], and countless NPC trainers. They're all treated in a positive light, too.

** In addition to Psychic Pokémon, the games also often have humans with psychic powers as well. However, just like all other humans in the games, they rely on their Pokémon to battle and how powerful they are is really more of an InformedAttribute then anything else. Almost all characters who specialize in Psychic Pokémon are psychic themselves. Kanto Gym Leader [[TheStoic Sabrina]], Johto Elite Four [[VillainousHarlequin Will]], Hoenn Gym Leaders [[HalfIdenticalTwins Tate and Liza]], Unova Elite Four [[IllGirl Caitlin]], Kalos Gym Leader [[{{Seer}} Olympia]], and countless NPC trainers. They're all usually treated in a positive light, too.although Sabrina has had [[DependingOnTheWriter various depictions]] in various continuities.

** A ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'s enemy/ally called Psi wields powers of telepathy, telekinesis, teleportation, energy manipulation and more, but her telepathy/empathy comes with a serious drawback: she can't filter out other people's thoughts and emotions. Her tekelinesis is powerful enough to smash the Silver Age Supergirl around.
** In ''[[ComicBook/Supergirl1982 one of her adventures]]'' ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} faces a mutant with powers of telepathy, telekinesis, levitation, teleportation and pyrokinesis.

** ''[[{{Literature/Warlock}} Forerunner Foray]]'': The protagonist, Ziantha, was taken into [[ThievesGuild the Guild]] as a child because her sponsor saw her playing guessing games while begging for money, and realized that she must have psychic ability to do so well. Ziantha has psychometry, which she uses in the first foray in the book to steal information from a target without physically touching his physically isolated storage devices. She later (with the help of an alien friend) uses teleportation to steal the story's MacGuffin. She can also use mindspeech, at least with other psychics.

** The Literature/{{Warlock}} series in ''Storm Over Warlock'' and ''Ordeal in Otherwhere'': The female Wyverns of Warlock are mistresses of illusion (a GenderRestrictedAbility) and have mindspeech.
** ''Literature/TheZeroStone'' and ''Uncharted Stars'': Eet communicates through mindspeech and is a master of illusion, and teaches some of these skills to the human protagonist, who is effectively Eet's [[TheSidekick Human Sidekick]] once Eet enters the first book.

* In the ''ChakonaSpace'' universe nearly all Chakats are Empaths, while Skunktaurs are divided into three "houses" with different powers; telepathy, telekinesis or astral projection (very rarely accompanied by teleportation). The two species can interbreed, which sometimes results in Chakats with Skunktaur powers.

* Appears several times in Creator/LarryNiven's ''LIterature/KnownSpace'' universe. The Kzin have a telepathic subspecies, the Grogs have powerful telepathy and MindControl (which, being immobile, they use to draw prey into their mouths), and several psychic humans have shown up, particularly Gil the ARM, who has a telekinetic third limb he discovered after losing one of his physical arms in a mining accident. Teela Brown was originally implied to have "[[BornLucky psychic luck]]", but this is {{deconstruct|ion}}ed and left ambiguous in later stories. Matt Keller had Plateau Eyes which could either make you ''really'' not notice him, or completely fascinate you.

* Ringo in ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached'' is ''exceptionally'' psychic, with [[MySignificanceSenseIsTingling mindsight]] that lets him see everything from atoms to the surface of the sun, [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]] with which he can feel stuff at least 100 miles away and move it around, a latent [[{{Teleportation}} teleport escape clause]], and the ability to sense (and, unfortunately, be affected by) other things operating on the psychic plane. Luckily, as an ActualPacifist, he's a very peaceable soul; all he wants to do is lie around all day looking at things.
** John can link "water-strings" with people and communicate [[PsychicLink telepathically]] with them, usually by touch. He can also tap into and share Ringo's [[MySignificanceSenseIsTingling mindsight]], though he does not experience it as fully as Ringo does. It is not known whether he can delve deeper into anyone's thoughts.
*** He can't, as evidenced in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', when he tried to interrogate some ninjas and got nothing. He acknowledges that he's a pretty feeble telepath. And Ringo, after experience with real telepaths, notes that John isn't one.

** As far as humans go, the show
has generic clairvoyant psychics Pamela Barnes and Missouri Mosely as well as the [[FanNickname Special Children]], a gaggle of young adults with psychic abilities of [[BlessedWithSuck varying]] [[CursedWithAwesome usefulness]].usefulness]].
** Demons generally have telekinesis and can read the memories of their host when they possess them.
** Angels have telekinesis as well, and are implied to be able to pick up surface thoughts or read parts of people's pasts by being in their presence, such as when Castiel is able to tell a woman why her father left when she was a girl, or when Balthazar is able to tell that Dean saw ''Film/TheGodfather'' twice just by looking at him. Angels also communicate with each other telepathically through "Angel Radio", and can hear prayers addressed to them and sense where the praying person is without being told their location.
** Shapeshifters for some reason seem to have a telepathic connection of some sort with whomever they copy, as one that copies Dean is able to give Sam accurate information about a hunt that occurred years ago, despite said information never being mentioned in the shifter's presence.
