* Several variants on this trope show up in the ''FanFic/{{Dangerverse}}'':
** The lesser Ravenclaw bloodline gift was a limited degree of clairvoyance (seeing things most can't in the present). By the present day, that gift has been subsumed into the Ravenclaw gift of Healing, allowing blood Heirs of Ravenclaw to instantly know someone's state of health just by Looking in the right way.
** The primary Slytherin bloodline power was prophetic Sight. Luckily for our heroes, the branch of the Slytherin bloodline from which Voldemort descended lost that power long ago.
** When Luna's mother's scrying bowl explodes, several of the fragments cut Luna, getting the scrying potion in her blood and granting her both clairvoyance and some limited prophetic powers. [[spoiler: These prophetic powers are vastly enhanced when she is blood-adopted into the branch of the Slytherin bloodline that stayed faithful to the other Founders.]]

* In ''Literature/HarryPotter'', Seers are wizards and witches who have the ability to see into the future. This seems to be one of the rare magical abilities that cannot be taught, only inherited, such as being a Parselmouth or a Metamorphmagus. Professor Trelawney the Divinations professor at Hogwarts has Seer ancestry, though she herself [[spoiler:is also one, though she has only given two actual prophecies in her entire life, and has no memory of either.]] Professor McGonagall is dismissive of Divinations in general and Trelawney in particular because she believes that seeing into the future isn't magic that can be taught and thus has no place in Hogwarts. Even a true Seer's prophecies don't always come true anyway, since people are perfectly able to ScrewDestiny in this setting.

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': Both Reynir and Lalli have a form of this. Reynir's Icelandic magic tradition is the only one of the two traditions that is associated with full-on visions of the future, but Lalli seems to be getting much more short-term warnings, only some of which can be explained by his magical vision that is supposed to be geared toward seeing a larger range of spirits than Reynir can.

* Visionary arcana, and in particular the Vision arcanum, is one of the kinds of magic available to ''TabletopGame/BlueRose'' adepts. It lets you see the possible future, with varying clarity depending on how skilled you are, ranging from a flash of blurry events for a beginner to a master being able to RewindReplayRepeat her vision at will. It also comes with the added bonus of giving you a SpiderSense.
