I don't like the image for this page, this bit of clip art doesn't seem to fit the trope very well.

This is not a example — having one trait in common on a few occasions isn't enough.
- Daphne Moon on Frasier claimed to be "a bit psychic". Prior to Lilith's first appearance on the show, she uttered the phrase "I sense a great evil," and was sick with a migraine for the rest of the episode until Lilith left.

This one got clogged with natter pointing out ways the example doesn't fit the trope very well. If an example is poor we're better off not using it. But please don't abuse Example Indentation / bullet point markup to separate material by author, and please don't natter — Repair, Don't Respond.
- Good Omens: Anathema Device is something of a Granola Girl. She's a witch (the latest in a long line of witches) who subscribes to a number of environmentally-conscious and/or New Age magazines. Much of the plot results from those very same magazines, which are rather persuasive to a budding Antichrist.
- Not a straight version of the trope, since Anathema is a good person and is actually factually right about most things. She's just socially conscious to a thousand percent - which is a bit strange, since she's one of the few people who knows for certain that there won't be any future generations to preserve the environment for...
- Also, she's quite practical and down to earth compared to most examples. The bread knife vs. protective amulets come to mind.
- She is, after all, a Pratchettian witch, which is less of a magical profession and more of a mindset.

About Hannah Montana's Sarah, Dose anybody know of a trope for those who don't go green unless they should go nuts?
