** Kitty Pryde describes Professor X as "the most powerful brain in the world," and Stryker similarly calls him "the world's most powerful psychic." Sebastian Shaw is so impressed by the strength of Xavier's telepathy that he tries to recruit Charles even though Shaw already has a formidable psychic as his second-in-command. (This indicates that Shaw considers Xavier's mutation to be more potent than Emma Frost's.) Professor X's gift is why [[spoiler:Apocalypse covets his "extraordinary" abilities--the best that he has encountered in "a thousand lifetimes"--and selects him to be his next mutant host]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/{{Erfworld}}'': Eyemancy magic in general, and one of its subschools, Thinkamancy, in particular, [[NeverMessWithGranny Maggie]] and [[BigBad Charlie]] being the comic's notable in-house practitioners. Thinkamancy abilities range wildly from [[{{Telepathy}} useful]] and [[PsychicBlockDefense benign]] to [[MindRape dangerous]] and [[MoreThanMindControl terrifying]]. Parson describes it as "really useful, really dangerous" magic.

* Karcharoth and Hati of ''CryHavoc'' have a power known as psyching which seems to combine versions of telekinesis with electrokinesis and pyrokinesis. These powers are very limited, allowing one to only lift a few pounds at short range, but they are used creatively to great effect on the battlefield (taking out entire squads by setting off the bullets in a soldiers magazines that are still in his vest)

** A "true telepath" is one who not only reads others' thoughts but can get into their heads and affect their actions, thoughts, emotions, decisions and memories. Lessa in ''DragonridersOfPern'' is a true telepath as were the Melkotians in the ''StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "Spectre of the Gun" where they caused each member of the Enterprise crew to hear their warning message in his or her own language.

** Although no one, outside of Jean and Emma (see below), has yet to shown this ability in the films, Charles Xavier is likely the most powerful telepath on Earth.
