* 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]].

* ''VideoGame/ArcanumOfSteamworksAndMagickObscura'' starts with the PlayerCharacter emerging from the wreckage of a shot-down blimp, who then talks to the only other survivor, a gnome named Preston Radcliffe [[spoiler: who is actually a disguised dwarf named Stennar Rock-Cutter]]. He gives the player a ring and tells them to "find the boy, as well as informing them that he "escaped" from somewhere and that someone is "coming back" to destroy everything, while not elaborating on any of the information that he just gave you. This is [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] by the fact that he [[AlmostDeadGuy was dying]], and it was a painful struggle just to get each word out.

* In ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/8793565/chapters/20159878 How the Light Gets In]]'', Laurel is suddenly brought BackFromTheDead through witchcraft. While they're happy at her return, she and Dean (and probably Sam and Castiel) all know that her resurrection is unnatural, and there will be consequences.
-->"What's happening here - this open defiance of the natural order of things - is wrong. Her very existence is wrong. She is not a miracle. She is a consequence. Something has gone terribly wrong here. Somewhere under the denial and the desperation to believe that they can go back to the way things were, Dean knows that too. There's something coming. Something bad. She can feel it, smell it, practically taste it in the air, and he can try but he won't be able to protect her from it."

* The omnipresent thread of the looming {{Nothing|IsScarier}} in the first half of ''Film/TheNeverendingStory''. Though in this case it seems like even the people talking about the Nothing have no idea what it is. Figuring it out is actually a major plot point.

* Spoofed and Lampshaded in A. Lee Martinez's ''The Last Adventure Of Constance Verity'', when perennial WeirdnessMagnet/adventuress Connie grouses about how prophecies ''never'' just state things outright. When Tia suggests that prophets speak that way to maintain a "sense of mystery", Connie points out that the future is '''already''' mysterious, so if prophets genuinely valued mystery they'd simply stop saying ''anything'' about it.
