* In ''Literature/AFireUponTheDeep'' by Creator/VernorVinge, there's a galaxy-spanning {{Usenet}}-like network where various aliens discuss the book's crisis, from a number of different perspectives. One particular alien, "Twirlip of the Mists", is talking through several layers of auto-translation software on an extremely low-bandwidth connection, so most of what it says sounds rather bizarre. It's pretty much all exactly right, though, including such apparent nonsense as "hexapodia is the key insight".

* Ray Delgado, the main character of ''ComicBook/WelcomeToHoxford'', is a murderous psychopath who's been imprisoned for life. After being transferred to the titular facility, he comes to believe that he's Kronos, Lord of the Titans, and is meant to do battle with the beasts. [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent He's right about the second part]].

* In the ''Literature/EighthDoctorAdventures'' novel ''Alien Bodies'', UNISYC (the ruthless future version of UNIT) is represented at the auction by Colonel Kortez, who insists on describing nearly everything as "not what it seems". His subordinate officer has privately concluded he has a form of paranoia called Displacer Syndrome, the Doctor thinks he's "rather confused", but ''every single one of the things he mentions'' turns out to not, in fact, be what it seems.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/IraTabankin is rather fond of writing unhinged-sounding survivalists building bunkers over the objections of their family and community, only to be proven right.
** ''Literature/TheShelter'' Jay Tolson spends millions in lottery winnings buying a farm with a fortified castle for a house, and a bunker beneath it.
** ''Literature/WeKnewTheyWereComing'' has Troy, and other survivalists, being discreetly backed by the government to prepare for disaster without ever explaining what for.
** ''Literature/ByTheLightOfTheMoon'': Jeff goes through this twice, once when stockpiling supplies and building a shelter, and again when trying to warn his community of preppers that nuclear (well, meteor) winter will render their homes uninhabitable.

* In ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', a lot of the seemingly crazy things Caboose says actually turn out to be right (at least to some degree) in the long run. For example, in the first season he thought that Church was "a gay robot", and six years later comes the big [[TheReveal Reveal]] that Church was in fact an A.I. rather than a human. After a time travel episode, he also notes that "Time... line? Time isn't made out of lines. It is made out of circles. That is why clocks are round." which actually fits with the eventual series theme of events going in circles.
** In season 8, Doc, Agent Washington, and the Meta are heading to Sidewinder to track down Church. Wash stops the jeep, and notes that there might be a trap waiting, one set up by a freelancer. Doc suggests that Wash noticing the trap might be part of the trap, but Wash assures him that he's over thinking things. Then it turns out that they stopped the jeep in the center of a circle of proximity mines. Doc manages to say, "told you so" just before the kaboom.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/AtomicRobo'' generally dismisses Dr. Dinosaur's rants as complete nonsense, which is definitely a reasonable conclusion to make, but nevertheless, in the Savage Sword of Doctor Dinosaur, he is proven right about several things throughout the course of the story, such as [[spoiler: the possibility of time travel, the existence of Hollow Earth, the power of [[GreenRocks CRYSTALS]], and the existence of a giant magma worm.]] Nobody knows ''how'' this is possible, but it's [[InexplicablyAwesome Dr. Dinosaur, who does impossible things daily]].

* In ''PandoraHearts'', the hyper, [[AxCrazy Lottie]] says to Jack after he has taken over Oz's body to scare them away, [[spoiler:"You're so full of yourself because people call you a hero and somesuch! You must have been so glad when Glen died."]] Later on, it turns out she was entirely right to suspect [[spoiler: [[EvilAllAlong Jack]]]]. Woo-hoo for Lottie.

* Dr. Jackson's theory that the pyramids were [[AncientAliens landing pads for alien spacecraft]] got him all but laughed out of academia. That was when he found himself confronted by the USAF and learned for the existence of the ''{{Film/Stargate}}''.

He adds to Jake's duties protection over Grace, her son and their home despite the reluctance of both parties.
