* Within the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' franchise, the Book of Prophesies, introduced within VideoGame/KingdomHeartsX, serve as this for the entire universe. It has information about things that was, things that is, and things that will be and, according to Maleficent via a [[{{Retcon}} retroactivelly]] added scene within ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsCoded'', one can, among other things, create new worlds simply by adding onto it.

* ThePowerOfFive series has a dream world where the five main characters can talk to each other. It has a library that holds the book of every person who has ever lived (and possibly who will live). Each book tells the entire life story of that person from birth to death, [[spoiler: Matt reads his in order to find out how to defeat the Old Ones]].

* ''Manga/{{Kinnikuman}}'''s Scramble for the Throne arc gives us the Muscle Book of Prophecies, which goes one step further- if a Choujin's personal page in the book is destroyed, that Choujin fades from existence.

* In the ''{{Redwall}}'' series, there is a cavern that functions as a Tome of Prophecy in Salamandastron behind the Badger Lord's throne, sealed with a boulder so huge that only a badger warrior can move it. The warrior seer badger lords retreat into this cavern when so moved and paint their prophetic visions on the walls. Outsiders are allowed in only at the behest of the current Badger Lord, so generally only the lords themselves know what is painted there.

* One interpretation of the ''Literature/BookOfRevelation'' is that it is this trope.

* One interpretation interpetation of the ''Literature/BookOfRevelation'' is that it is this trope.trope.
** Literature/TheBible also contains a lot of ''explicit'' books of prophecy, ie, books recording the words and actions of people identified as "prophets" in the text. The ''Literature/BookOfIsaiah'' and the ''Literature/BookOfJeremiah'' are probably the most famous, but there are a whole load of shorter ones as well. At first glance, these are actually subversions of the trope, in a way, because usually the prophets are making claims only about what will happen ''if'' people do not [[ScareEmStraight change their ways]], rather than what will happen ''[[YouCantFightFate regardless]]'', and as such most of the "prophecies" are never technically proven true. However, the writers of Literature/TheFourGospels argue that a lot of the things written in these books were ''also'' accurately predicting the life and nature of JesusChrist.

* The Dead Sea Scrolls in Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion are some imprecise combination of this and AkashicRecords. The exact details are ambiguous and never fully touched on in the series itself, but some of the [[AllThereInTheManual background materials]] suggest that they are a prophecy regarding the fate of the world that has already mostly played out by the time the series begins.
