* Doctor Strange in ''FanFic/ChildOfTheStorm'' does this [[{{Pun}} all the time,]] to the point where it's impossible to figure out how much of his foreknowledge is due to this and how much to ''actual'' precognition. This trope, combined with total mastery of the BatmanGambit, lets him basically run the plot [[TheGhost from mostly offscreen]].

A variation is a character who is TrappedInThePast before their actual date of birth, but in a period that they are familiar with from history books. They may also be able to make use of a ConvenientEclipse if they remember the exact date when it is due to happen.

* In modern age comics [[TheFlash Barry Allen]] and many of his family member know the future, at least in vague terms, due to spending so much time in the 31st century. Barry himself was able to make use of this knowledge even after his death by time traveling to important events while he was still alive.

* In ''Literature/TimeEnoughForLove'', this is how archprotagonist Lazarus Long hopes to survive and prosper in the 1920's United States, since that's when he grew up and he has extensive period and personal knowledge of the era. Two things foil him: first, he arrives too early due to a miscalculation and winds up in 1916, on the cusp of U.S. involvement in WorldWarOne. Second, he falls in love with his mother Maureen and, in a [[LoveMakesYouDumb misguided attempt to impress her]], enlists in the army. However, he does entrust to Maureen a wealth of information on the future history of the United States in that timeline, allowing her to quietly abet several key events that help things [[YouAlreadyChangedThePast turn out the way they should]].
