*** Bella, the main protagonist, is naturally immune to all psychic abilities that can be directly exercised over a person (Alice can still have visions about her). When she becomes a vampire, she is able to project this "shield" outwards and immunise others as well.
*** Possibly Heidi of the Volturi. She is noted (alongside Rosalie) to be incredibly beautiful, even for a vampire. However, her ability to attract people is implied to border on hypnosis
*** Jasper is a subversion: While it seems, at first, as though he is a traditional empath, Bella's inability to shield herself from his powers is explained as him directly affecting the nervous system and not the mind.

* The ''Literature/Twilight'' series by Creator/Stephanie Meyer has several examples of psychic powers:
** Firstly, most of the "special gifts" (unique powers that a select few of the vampire species develop upon turning) that some vampires possess are psychic in nature:
*** Edward's mind-reading
*** Alice's precognition
*** Kate, of the Denali Coven, can create a sensation akin to an electric shock through physical contact. It is noted to be psychic in nature
*** Antagonist Victoria is able to sense any danger (to herself) and instinctively avoid it - unless she consiously chooses to stick around anyway
*** Aro's "tactile telepathy"
*** Marcus, who can sense the nature of relationships
*** Marcus's wife, Didyme, who projected an aura of joy everywhere she went
*** The Volturi Guard gives us: **** Demetri, who is a psychic tracker that can sense the direction of his targets
**** Jane, who can project the illusion of intense burning pain
**** Alec, Jane's twin, who can switch off all of a person's sensory perception
**** Chelsea, who can manipulate relationships
**** Eleazar, who can instinctively identify and determine the powers of other gifted vampires
**** Corin, who can stimulate emotional contentment to an addictive degree
**** Afton, who can create the illusion that he is not visible or present
*** Bella, the main protagonist, is naturally immune to all psychic abilities that can be directly exercised over a person (Alice can still have visions about her). When she becomes a vampire, she is able to project this "shield" outwards and immunise others as well.
*** Possibly Heidi of the Volturi. She is noted (alongside Rosalie) to be incredibly beautiful, even for a vampire. However, her ability to attract people is implied to border on hypnosis
*** Jasper is a subversion: While it seems, at first, as though he is a traditional empath, Bella's inability to shield herself from his powers is explained as him directly affecting the nervous system and not the mind.
** The werewolves of the Quileute community also have psychic abilities:
*** There is a form of involuntary telepathy shared among members of a pack. The Alphas of different packs are able to communicate telepathically with each other by choice. This telepathy only works when the werewolves are in wolf form, and may have developed to make up for the fact that wolves can't talk.
*** The Alpha of a pack is able to exercise his will over his subordinates, to the extent where attempts at disobeying direct orders cause physical discomfort
** It is also hinted that some humans may be born with natural, low-level, psychic abilities. These will be greatly magnified if they become vampires. Examples include:
*** Bella, who as a human was immune to all direct psychic influence
*** Charlie, whom Edward says has a difficult mind to read (implying it is from him that Bella gets her own mental shields)
*** Alice was plagued by a weaker form of her precognitive visions as a human, which led to her being institutionalized.
** Renesmeé, Edward and Bella's dhampir daughter, who has tactile psychic powers. She is the sole psychic character who can penetrate her mother's shield. She can also project her own thoughts into the minds of others through physical contact. This leads to an interesting scene in which she and Aro (who receives thoughts through touch) have an entire, non-verbal conversation just by holding hands

** Sniffers can see where any object has every been and who's used it. They get their name as their ability works by sniffing the object, which doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

** 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.

* Empathy -- the talent of TheEmpath, the ability to sense another person's emotional state. At times, even [[ISenseADisturbanceInTheForce disturbances in the force]] and [[TheForceIsStrongWithThisOne how strong the force is with someone]].

* In the Franchise/{{Marvel|Universe}} and [[Franchise/TheDCU DC]] universes (and many [[TakeAThirdOption other companies]]). Marvel has numerous {{mutants}} with telepathy, including Professor X, ComicBook/JeanGrey, Comicbook/RachelSummers, ComicBook/{{Psylocke}}, and dozens of others. Some of these also have telekinesis or other related powers. Oddly enough, Marvel in particular differentiates between mutant and non-mutant psychics. {{Spider-Man}} has a minor form of this in his SpiderSense. DC has a few alien races, including ComicBook/{{Martian|Manhunter}}s and [[Comicbook/{{LegionOfSuper-Heroes}} Titanians]], who have native psychic powers of various kinds.

* ''{{Pokemon}}'': One of the types is Psychic. Moves with this type cover all the specific powers listed above, and many of them can be learned by Pokémon that aren't Psychic-types themselves. The typing, due to various reasons, was [[GameBreaker ridiculously overpowered]] in the first generation, but later generations of the franchise have balanced it out much more. Now, while Psychic-types are relatively common and useful in the game itself and in competitive play, they're not all the game-breaking powerhouses they were originally.

** 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 ''Series/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.
