* ''Literature/TheGanymedeTakeover''. Mekkis opposed the conquest of Earth because his Oracle (a [[ServantRace creeche]] capable of precognition) foresaw a 'coming darkness'. The apparent [[VichyEarth success of the invasion]] means that Mekkis is now discredited. When Mekkis demands an explanation, the Oracle can only repeat the same vague warnings.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' made the books' prophecy of "The Prince That Was Promised" even more vague by stating that, in the language of the prophecy makers, the word for "Prince" was gender neutral. Meaning now the ever-growing list of those who might qualify as "The Prince" just doubled.

* ''ComicBook/UltimateOrigins'': The Watchers are here to watch some imminent devastation, which they know nothing about, other than it will happen.

* {{Subverted}} in Creator/MercedesLackey's ''[[Literature/TheHeraldsOfValdemar Brightly Burning]]'': a very young, recently Chosen Herald Trainee snaps with a vision of his mentor Herald caught up in the middle of flames. They speculate that it symbolizes being caught up in the chaos and hell of war. It turns out that [[spoiler:the Herald was caught up in the massive flames of Lavan Firestorm's final storm.]]

* In ''The Screaming Staircase'', the first book of ''Literature/LockwoodAndCo'', the first things that the whispering skull tells Lucy is that "death is coming" and that "death is in life and life is in death." Both do have actual meaning and the latter becomes particularly meaningful in light of the revelations of the final two books of the series. Both, however, are so irritatingly vague at the time that Lucy's immediate reaction is to close herself off from communication from the skull and leave it be for time being, despite the fact it's the first known instance of ''anyone'' communicating with a type III ghost since Marissa Fittes.

** [[VideoGame/TheWitcher3WildHunt Said third game]] couples this with a mild ProphecyTwist - the Wild Hunt [[spoiler: are elves from another dimension, and they're fleeing the ''true'' threat of the White Frost.]]

** Unlike other examples, this one ''does'' get cleared up in TheStinger of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' - what's coming is [[spoiler: the return of deities like Fenharir]].

* UsefulNotes/{{Nostradamus}} wasn't exactly clear with his predictions. Skeptics believe that he made them this way so that [[SharpshooterFallacy if only a few seemed to come true, people will believe the rest must as well]].

The few times he slipped up and made specific predictions they were wrong.

* This appears in the premiere book of ''Literature/TheMysteriousBenedictSociety'' as "the thing to come." Mr. Benedict and his crew are already aware that "the Sender" is the cause of the phenomenon known as the Emergency and due to a number of factors have good reason to believe that something much worse is coming. Due to their limited ability to gather information up until the arrival of the main characters (the titular society), they don't know what this "thing to come" is, only that for them and those like them whose minds have a powerful love of truth, it is likely to be very bad indeed.
