** In {{Filler}}, Goku and Piccolo both display powerful telekenisis. In manga-based materials, they haven't shown such abilities (probably having no use for them when they can fire planet-exploding energy blasts at will), but they are shown to be capable of contacting others with telepathy.

In general, the more powerful and [[PstandardPsychicPstance dramatic]] the psychic, the [[MohsScaleOfScienceFictionHardness softer]] the SciFi -- psychic powers are one of the most common ways of including MagicByAnyOtherName and [[RecycledInSpace recycling Magical Tropes in a scientific environment]]. The extreme cases are largely confined to the horror, CosmicHorrorStory and superhero genres (with exceptions, such as ''StarWars''), but the weakest forms can [[PsychicDreamsForEveryone crop up even in mainstream shows]].

* Lily Strosek the Fourth from ''[[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Force]]'' has a limited kind of Psychic ability. She can send psychic thoughts, sometimes to the point of sending others reeling, but unlike telepaths, she can't read minds. It's also different from the telepathic ability that mages in the setting have. As a CuteMute, she mostly uses this to talk to others, which can lead to some problems when the being she's trying to communicate with is immune to psychics.
