Precognition, also referred to as the Sight, was the psychic ability to see or foretell future events. It was possessed by rare humans[1] and some demon species.[2]

Similarly, the ability to perceive past events referred to retrocognition.[3]


Slayers could experience revelations though prophetic dreams that would allow them to perceive future events.[4]

While most visions only indicated people or locations in which help was needed, some visions also featured future events.[5][6]

Through aura reading, members of the Deathwok Clan could use their empathetic abilities to discover one's destiny upon hearing them singing.[2]

While minders experienced future events due to their non-linear temporal perception,[7] spirit guides had knowledge of the future because they existed out of time.[8]

Some seers were able to perceive the future through simple intuition.[9]
