* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' brings us two, both from the same episode. The first is an anthropologist from Ba Sing Se University who is desperate to learn everything he can about the world. While he's not too distanced, he cares about knowledge much more than his own life. Eventually he finds the largest library in the world, the one belonging to Wan Shi Tong, He Who Knows Ten Thousand Things. The owl-spirit is one who has stopped along people access to his information, due to how people always use it to hurt others.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series has the [[TheOrder Cult of the Ancestor Moth]], an Imperial order based around divining the information contained within the [[TomeOfEldritchLore Elder Scrolls]], using a ritual known as the Ritual of the Ancestor Moth, at the eventual cost of their sight. These "Moth Priests", as they are known, organize and care for the [[GreatBigLibraryOfEverything Imperial Library]] within the [[TheTower White-Gold Tower]] in the Imperial City, where the Elder Scrolls are traditionally stored. In 4E 175 (26 years before the events of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]''), the Scrolls mysteriously went missing from the Library and were scattered across Tamriel. The Order has taken to searching for them ever since.

* Seeing as the game is one big murder mystery that constantly implores you to "Reach out for the truth", the Investigation Team in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' could be considered Seekers (especially KidDetective Naoto.) Even the GoldenEnding is only gotten by continuously seeking to uncover the truth, even after the main mystery is solved.

* The SwordOfTruth centers around the Seeker of Truth. It's The Seeker's ''job'' to be this trope. Notably, in that respect [[spoiler: Richard]] wasn't the DesignatedHero - in fact, most of the previous Seekers were only politically-appointed, and the latest was only appointed because he deserved to be. It turns out he had good upbringing and approximately thirty kinds of inherited or conferred destiny, so being qualified to be The Seeker is probably the least of his accomplishments, although it becomes more and more useful over the course of the series.

* Richard Cypher from, oddly enough, ''Series/LegendOfTheSeeker''. He is the Seeker of Truth, armed with, coincidentally, the Sword of Truth.

Added DiffLines:

* Arthéon from ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'' due to being TheRoleplayer, is very interested in the story and general background of the fictional {{MMORPG}} that he's playing. Especially noticeable due to him being surrounded by PlayTheGameSkipTheStory types. He seems to have picked this up from his former guildmates in Justice, in which all known members are very much like him in this aspect.

* In VideoGame/DotHackGUGames, the fluff sometimes describe Hasseo and Ovan as "Seekers of the Truth". Hasseo is driven to figure out the mystery behind the PKer known as "Tri-Edge", and to save the coma victims (particularly Shino) he seems to leave in his wake; Ovan wishes to find "The Key of Twilight" [[spoiler: as he is actually "Tri-Edge", or rather, his PC is infected with the malevolent AI that started the whole mess. He wants to find a way to purge it so as to save his little sister, who was the first coma victim.]]
