* In a meta example, the author of notorious ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fanfiction ''Fanfic/MyImmortal'' correctly predicted in an author's note [[spoiler:that Harry is the last Horcrux and will have to die to defeat Voldemort in the last book.]] She's not the only person who guessed this one, but given Tara's extremely questionable grasp of the canon and tendency towards bizarre "plot" elements, this is actually rather impressive.

*People often make fun of conspiracy theorists who think the government is watching everyone, but revelations from leaked files about global surveillance programs show those conspiracy theorists are more right than many would like.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Nine}}''. ''Disney/{{Moana}}'': Gramma Tala [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] her cloudcuckoolander status when she refers to herself as "the crazy village lady". She's the only person who supports Moana's sailing the ocean, and she's the one that tells Moana what she can do to save their people (her son / Moana's father on the other hand angrily throws away the "Heart" stone that will [[spoiler: eventually help save them.) Moana's goes on the mission her grandmother encouraged her to go on - sailing across the ocean, returning the Heart stone to the BigBad who then transforms back into the BigGood it was before, finding new islands and sources of food, and when she returns back to her people, reminding them that they are voyagers at heart]].

Sometimes the guy's truly the OnlySaneMan whose condition is [[GoMadFromTheRevelation due to the frightening nature of the things he had uncovered]]. Sometimes, he IS mad but still got one thing right (he's usually smart enough to notice that this one is somehow different from his usual delusions), but people who already know him will just [[CryingWolf dismiss this as another lie]]. And occasionally, he's RightForTheWrongReasons (sometimes despite particularly bizarre InsaneTrollLogic).

* A perfect example of this is the beggar woman in ''Sweeney Todd''. She has the greatest awareness of the characters' secrets in the musical but people disregard her because she seems crazy. Tragic when you find out why she seems to know so much.
* Rosencrantz of ''RosencrantzAndGuildensternAreDead''. The general rule is that Guildenstern is the smarter of the two but talks in circles, while Rosencrantz is a bit dim but usually hits the nail on the head (even if he doesn't know it himself).
* Their predecessors, Vladimir and Estragon from ''WaitingForGodot'', have a similar dynamic, with Vladimir as the misguided intellectual and Estragon as the understanding fool.
* ''AVeryPotterMusical'', and this is quite the spoiler: [[spoiler:Draco insists that Hogwarts is a terrible school and he's going to get transferred to Pigfarts, which appears to be him making up completely random nonsense for attention: Pigfarts is on Mars, is run by a lion named Rumbleroar, which is suspiciously similar to Dumbledore's name, and of course no one else has ever heard of it. When it's suggested Draco go to Pigfarts and leave the heroes alone, this prompts Draco to flip out and berate Harry for not having a spaceship. But then, near the end of the play, Rumbleroar actually appears to Dumbledore and flies him off to Mars, and in ''A Very Potter Sequel'', it turns out that Luna is familiar with Pigfarts as well.]]

Everyone dismisses him, but at the end of the episode, after a bit of research, Binky shows everyone some old footage of the artist unveiling the piece - and proves the museum has been hanging it upside-down.

** G'Kar definitely had his cuckoolander moments... and almost everyone ignored his warnings about the return of certain {{eldritch abomination}}s until it was nearly too late. The ones who didn't ignore him were already planning for it and feigned ignorance while letting his world burn to maintain the ruse.
