* When Tobimar sets out on his quest at the beginning of ''Literature/PhoenixRising'', his mother gives him a (magical) pre-recorded message from his mentor, Khoros, who had foreseen that he would be chosen for the task, and furthermore turns out to have successfully predicted and incorporated responses to Tobimar's reactions while viewing the message. Predicting people's actions turns out to be kind of Khoros's thing.

** In "The Parting of the Ways": The Ways", the Doctor's recorded message recording to Rose: Rose initially just looks straight ahead and recites its message, apparently unaware of anything Rose is doing. Then at the climax of the message -- and only then -- the recording message, it seems to know that Rose has moved and turns to face her. This was intentional on the part of Creator/RussellTDavies.

Added DiffLines:

* Major part of bizarre Creator/AdultSwim comedy ''Series/TheHeartSheHoller'', where the deceased Mayor has created countless videotapes for every possible conversation. These videotapes also include reactions to events and moments in the future he could not have known about, such as speaking to specific characters as they walk in to see his videos playing, giving monologues when nobody is watching, and most bizarrely, knowing when his daughter would try to bribe him with oral sex (him being, again, a video recording), and responding in turn.
