* The title character on ''EliStone'' is an almost literal Cassandra: he constantly (and accurately) predicts disaster with his visions, and every time he has such a vision he has to convince everyone around him that he's not crazy all over again.

* Jim Sterling of the WebVideo/{{Jimquisition}} has recently called himself this on video game news, and [[https://youtu.be/TQsc14gDPbk?t=1154 for good reason.]] He has correctly predicted Steam's need for better quality games, how Loot Boxes were going to be a problem, and even the Visceral Games company was going to be shut down by Electronic Arts. At the time, no one believed him and called him out on his claims, usually because he's crude and very critical on his videos. But it turns out he was right every time, and he may just be right on the new issue of how Micro-transactions will eventually blow up in a disastrous way...

* ''Fanfic/Pokedex'':
** According to some legends, Articuno. Everyone assumes due to other legends that it will lead people do their doom, so they run away from it without realizing it was trying to lead them to safety.
** The crews of ghost ships are not killed by Jellicent like everyone believes, but imprisoned in an UnderwaterCity made of shipwrecks to create technology for their jailors. Those few sailors who escape and make it to shore are always taken for madmen or liars.
** Absol is also an example, due to people recognizing the danger of [[SelfFulfillingProphecy listening to it]], though this just obliterates their chances of surviving a disaster altogether.
* Silver in ''FanFic/PrisonIslandBreak''. Nobody really believes he knows the future, and he hates being able to see it as it does him little good.
** WordOfGod is that the author used this 'psychic' approach as opposed to the contorted time-travelling that took place in VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 (when Silver first canonically appeared).
* Liman Brocat in ''FanFic/TheDilgarWar'' is treated as crazy when he predicts that the Dilgar will come for the Brakiri too and openly compares Jha'dur to the mythical Deathwalker. Later subverted, as the epilogue shows that when he warned about the Shadow War the Brakiri listened, and his assassination served only to confirm he was right.
* In ''FanFic/TheNucleusIncident'', Demoman's the first one to notice [[spoiler:the BLU Spy's influence], but seeing as he's been turned into a kid, no one believes him.
* In ''FanFic/WishCarefully'', the clerk in charge of the Hogwarts List noticed that squibs don't show up on the list to get their Hogwarts Letter. He kept trying to address the problem but ended up getting crucioed for his trouble.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Zigzagged with Catelyn. Her safety concerns about Bran's climbing turn out to be more than justified. Her firstborn Robb consistently ignores her well-reasoned advice of being wary of the Greyjoys, Karstarks and Freys, with disastrous results. On the other hand, she also tells her husband to trust ''Littlefinger'', which is hands down the dumbest thing you can do in Westeros. And while she does warn Robb to be wary of the Freys, she also vouches for them, saying Walder Frey would never do anything to harm her.
