*** Special mention goes to the fan Imperial Guard regiment the [[FanFic/FirstMembranes 1st Membranes]], who do to a quirk of ''Only War'' regiment creation rules are almost all (97%) psykers- often incompletely trained, at that.

*** There are only two Psychic-type trainers who aren't confirmed to be psychic themselves; [[BadassBookworm Lucian]], the strongest member of the Sinnoh Elite Four[[note]]Although with the way his character is, no one would be surprised if he was[[/note]] and [[TheProfessor Faba]], branch chief of the Aether Foundation.

* In ''{{X-Com}}'' series, several aliens have psychic powers, and by interrogation and research, humans can learn them as well. In ''X-Com: Apocalypse'' "[[HalfHumanHybrid Mutants]]" have a greater potential, Androids have none (but are immune to alien telepathy in turn).

** ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam 00]]'' goes a bit easier on the Psychic Powers thing. Every Gundam Meister in Season 2 can communicate through means of Quantum Brainwaves, except for [[spoiler:the second]] Lockon Stratos. This actually turns out to be an advantage for Lockon in the [[Gundam00AWakeningOfTheTrailblazer
movie]], because the [[StarfishAliens ELS]] constantly try to communicate with anyone using Quantum Brainwaves, rendering them unable to fight due to the accidental MindRape. Lockon's inability to use Quantum Brainwaves is actually what also saves Setsuna.

** Newtypes also seem to have the ability to detect one another, though this varies depending on how strong they are. A weak Newtype like Char Aznable might go all but undetected, while a strong Newtype like Kamille Bidan has no hope of sneaking up on anybody, and the frighteningly powerful Scirocco more or less broadcasts his presence to everyone in the vicinity. There are also Artificial or Cyber-Newtypes, who are created in labs, are typically quite powerful, and almost inevitably unstable.

* At the SuperheroSchool [[WhateleyUniverse Whateley Academy]] there are so many teenagers with psychic abilities of one kind or another that there is a Psychic Arts Department full of teachers who ''also'' have psychic abilities. In addition to every case mentioned above, there are also [[ComboPlatterPowers Package Deal Psychics]] who have multiple powers (which typically can only be used one at a time): most have ESP, Psionics, and some form of PK ability. Some can even use the [=PDP=] talent to simulate the {{Superman}} bit (the FlyingBrick), levitating themselves for flight, using the PK to give themselves a [[DeflectorShields super-strong field]] about their body, yada yada yada. Living near the academy is a sweet little old lady... who may be the most powerful precog on the planet.

* WhiteWolf also has their [[TabletopGame/{{Aeon}} Aeon/Trinity]] series, which focuses on this exclusively. All the players are different flavors of Psions with their splat specific Psychic Powers which cover every form of _____-kinesis there might be.

* ''Manga/TheFiveStarStories'' has "Divers", who are descended from genetically altered SuperSoldiers from an ancient civilization. "Para Divers" have telepathy, clairvoyance & precognition, "Force Divers" have telekinesis & a precious few even have both. There are also "Bayias", people who possess [[MagicKnight both Diver powers & physically enhanced "Headdliner" abilities]]. The fact that psychic powers are just a futuristic-sounding kind of FunctionalMagic is fully acknowledged in the series, however & these people are often referred to simply as sorcerers.

** In ''Literature/StarshipTroopers'' it is not focused upon, but present. Early in the novel, Rico refers in passing to the "talents" assigned to Logistics & Communications (including "telepaths," "sensers," and "lucky men"). Towards the end, a "sensitive" is brought in to draw a map of a tunnel network. It's the real deal, but Rico himself is skeptical. Even after the sensitive's skills are proven, Johnnie still doubts the guy is psychic. His theory is the guy might just have really good hearing, and several comments made by the sensitive and his "handlers" would seem to back this up, but it's still ambiguous.
