* [[PsychopathicManchild Mao]] of ''Anime/CodeGeass'' has the ability to hear the thoughts of anyone within 500 meters, even on a subconscious level if he concentrates, making him a formidable opponent to the [[TheChessmaster highly]] [[XanatosPlannedThisIndex thought-oriented]] [[VillainProtagonist Lelouch]]. It does, however, have the drawback of being [[PowerIncontinence unable to turn off]], meaning he ''always'' hears ''everyone's'' thoughts within five hundred meters.

* ''Manga/DragonBall'' is usually more concerned with physical strength, but telepathy is important to the plot every now and again. The Kais all seem to have some level of mind reading and telepathic ability (King Kai's is so powerful he can psychically communicate with an entire planet at once, from anywhere in the universe). Babidi can use his magic for it, and even Goku and Vegeta will very rarely display low-level mind reading abilities.

** In a Silver Age Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} story, the titular heroine mind-reads a comatose girl. No explanation was given as to when Supergirl developed telepathy and she never used that power again, so it can be chalked up to the writer not doing his research.



*** The ''Threeboot'' version of the Legion, placed in one of the 52 parallel universes of the DCU, features a retooled version of the Titanians. In this version their powerful telepathy borders on a collective form of SacrificedBasicSkillForAwesomeTraining, as modern Titanians are a race of mute individuals, evolved without vocal cords as their prolonged use of telepathy made speech useless. Threeboot Saturn Girl may be as powerful as Mainstream Saturn Girl, but shut down her powers and she gets an instant downgrade to the resident CuteMute.

* Matt Parkman of ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' is unusual as being a telepath who ''isn't'' inordinately brainy.
** Parkman's power is actually "full control over the brain", meaning, in effect, every single power in the MindManipulation index. SuperpowerLottery to the max. Telepathy happens to be his earliest discovered ability and the most prominently featured.

* Creator/AlanDeanFoster has a thing for telepathy; it's heavily featured in many of his SpaceOpera novels. Of particular note are the (extinct) Tar-Aiym and the Ulru-Ujurrians in his ''Literature/HumanxCommonwealth'' series and the Solarian Combine in ''Design for Great-Day'', who have developed telepathy into what is effectively a multi-species, intergalactic HiveMind. In the latter case, this is treated as the natural and [[TheSingularity penultimate evolutionary stage]] of all species.
