** Of course, after the Punchinello Manor, we meet Nicole Horne, and the final fight takes place in her gigantic MegaCorp tower of [[DoomyDoomsOfDoom doom.]] Max still might count as Death though, being the change card. The only problem is that he potentially changes the world for the worse.

* There are two readings in ''[[Literature/{{Lyra}} The Raven Ring]]'', using the Lyran version of the Tarot deck. One uses the cliche "ominous-sounding cards every time", including a fake "Shadow Mage" card, and turns out to be a mismanaged attempt to magically doom Eleret so the villain can steal her ring. The other is a more [[InfoDump informative]] reading with the intent of learning about her situation, coupled with a scrying spell that gives her dream-like visions about each card's meanings, which are mixed.

* The Deck of Dragons in the ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' is this in general, as a two-way mirror that gives insight into the workings of gods and acendants. An especially intense reading is presented in ''Literature/DustOfDreams'': Fiddler is forced to do a reading of the Deck in the beginning of the book. It is implied that this isn't a simple reading, but more like an active call on ancient gods who promptly mark their players. By throwing the people attending the meeting across the room.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has Trelawney give Harry a ten card reading with a magical tarot deck - the difference being that the faces of the Major Arcana change in response to the subject of the reading - in chapter 66, with the last card, Judgement, causing Harry to freak out spectacularly because [[spoiler: it depicts him as the Dark Phoenix]]. And unnervingly, most of it has so far come true.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'', a man is invited to draw from the "Portentous Moments" tarot deck, [[ParodiedTrope consisting of only two cards]] -- "The Lovers" and "Death". The tarot reader's explanation is that "in a portentous moment you don't want 'Three of Cups' or something." [[spoiler:Inexplicably, the Three of Cups is exactly what the man draws.]]
