* The Aash Ra of the ''{{Literature/Astral Dawn}}'' series are omniscient.

* %%* The Aash Ra of the ''{{Literature/Astral Dawn}}'' series are omniscient.omniscient.
* ''Series/TheGoodPlace'':
** Janet, an information delivery system designed to make the afterlife easier. She knows literally everything that has ever happened in the entire universe, including what afterlife every single human ever ended up and exactly why they ended up there, and can create literally anything at any time, such as furniture, food, entire houses, and [[ItMakesSenseInContext a fourteen-ounce ostrich steak impaled on a giant novelty pencil that says "Lordy, lordy, I'm over 40"]]. She'd qualify as a deity in most religions if not for the fact that she has [[ExtremeDoormat absolutely no will of her own]] and rarely actually ''understands'' the information she has.
** Michael is a lesser, but still impressive, version. He has perfect memory, can speed-read through all of human literature in an hour, and has studied all the humans under his care. He therefore often references random events from their lives when they are relevant, because he knows absolutely everything they ever did.

* [[http://towerofgod.wikia.com/wiki/Guide Guides]] in ''WebComic/TowerOfGod'' are a downplayed example. They have an ability to see the future and to somehow see destinies that, absent rare special conditions, enables them to see the possible "paths" in any given situation or available to a person in the long term. So they basically know exactly what to do next. In a battle against a monster, a Guide can tell you how to AttackItsWeakPoint; they can walk straight through a maze, avoid traps, or solve a complex puzzle easily. The [[TheWikiRule comic's wiki]] also [[AllThereInTheManual says]] that "Guides have excellent analysis skills, and an A-Rank Guide can determine the power of an individual just by looking at them."

* Doctor Strange in ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' seems to be this.

* Doctor Strange in ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' seems to be this. It later turns out that he isn't-he's just what happens when you give a {{Seer}} and masterful user of the ButterflyEffect and BatmanGambit the power to travel through time. He ''does'' have blind spots, and there are things he doesn't know...but generally speaking, it's a fair bet that whatever major event is going on, he a) knows about it and b) has had a hand in it.
This list shows the last 10 events of 242. Show all.
