Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'', early on several characters have visions of a mysterious woman who looks [[IdenticalStranger identical to Team Gaim's Mai]] and gives vague warnings about how dark times are coming and that they can achieve their heart's desire if they have the strength to persevere. [[spoiler:And then late in the series, we find out that this woman actually ''is'' Mai, who after gaining god-like power from the "Golden Fruit" used TimeTravel to [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong try and prevent all the terrible things that have happened]]. And she wasn't vague on purpose, either; because she didn't have full control over her powers, her direct warnings like "Do NOT put on [[TransformationTrinket that belt]]!" were warped into the cryptic messages we saw [[OnceMoreWithClarity the first time around]].]]


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/MortalKombat2011'': The game starts after ''VideoGame/MortalKombatArmageddon'', with [[TheBadGuyWins Shao Kahn victorious]] and [[KillEmAll all the heroes dead]]. [[BigGood Raiden]] uses the last of his power to send a message back in time to himself around the time of the first ''VideoGame/MortalKombat'' game, including images of some of the disasters that have come to pass and the words "He must win." Past!Raiden does his best to act on this cryptic warning, but his attempts [[NiceJobBreakingItHero tend to backfire spectacularly]], like how [[spoiler:he keeps Smoke from getting [[UnwillingRoboticization turned into a cyborg]]...but it happens to the second Sub-Zero instead]]. It isn't until the end of the game when when Raiden finally realizes what his future self was trying to say: [[spoiler:the "he" is Shao Kahn himself -- once he breaks the rules by going to Earthrealm without winning the Mortal Kombat tournament, the Elder Gods finally get off their divine asses and smite him. Unfortunately at that point most of the cast is dead, including [[TheHero Liu Kang]], Earth is in ruins thanks to the invasion, and Shinnok is waiting for ''his'' chance to take over...]]

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'' has it as its ArcWords: "The sun approaches the horizon. The Everstorm comes. The True Desolation. The Night of Sorrows." Interestingly, while the first seems metaphorical, [[spoiler:the Everstorm comes in the climax of ''Words of Radiance'']] and the Desolations are real events that are much worse. One starts to wonder how terrible the Night of Sorrows will prove...

** Then there are the Death Rattles, prophetic whispers sometimes uttered by the dying. They describe many of the events of the books weeks or even months before they happen, but use such obscure terminology it's nearly impossible to puzzle them out even after the fact. Notable that the ArcWords were a Death Rattle, and bits and pieces of them show up all the time.

* In ''Anime/{{Endride}}'', [[FaintingSeer Eljuia ]]is pretty upfront that he doesn't have much to go on in his visions of what's about to come, but it always looks ominous.

Subtrope of PortentOfDoom. AStormIsComing is a specific subtrope. Related to ArcWords. PoorcommunicationKills goes with the territory if the confused characters aren't asking the obvious questions or for clarification. Not to be confused with HarbingerOfImpendingDoom.

* In the ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' episode [[Recap/SupernaturalS02E21AllHellBreaksLoosePartOne "All Hell Breaks Loose, Part One" (S02, Ep21)]], Sam says, "I mean, the size of what's coming - it's bigger than anyone has ever seen. I mean, it's gonna get bad." But, Sam really does not flesh this out further.

Added DiffLines:

* In the first episode of ''Series/AgentCarter'', the NebulousEvilOrganisation for the series is introduced in suitably ominous terms.
-->'''Leet Brannis:''' Leviathan is coming.
-->'''Peggy Carter:''' Who?
-->'''Leet Brannis:''' They'll tell you themselves soon enough. [[CrapsackWorld You're not going to like the future; such as it is.]]

* In ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'', Gaaki's Mask of Clairvoyance gives her visions of the future, and for some reason causes her to speak in extremely vague terms. However, her teammates are occasionally able to decipher her ramblings, e.g. "Seekers of Shadows" means the Dark Hunters.

Added DiffLines:

* Probably one of the harder-to-find examples: buried within the code of ''[[VideoGame/{{Undertale}} Undertale]]'' is Entry #17, the only one not among [[spoiler:Alphys' notes in the [[VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon True Lab]]]]. The entry was apparently written by [[TheGhost Doctor W.D. Gaster himself]], and references his monitoring of some kind of ever-increasing darkness (in which photon readings are apparently ''negative''), before asking "What do you two think?" The identity of those he addresses are unknown.
