A person characterized by two things — she (or he) gives correct and accurate warnings and predictions, and what she says is consistently belittled or ignored by the rest of the cast. You would think that the other characters would eventually decide that she can be trusted, but they seldom do. A particularly cruel plot twist is for the rest of the cast to believe Cassandra on the one and only time she is wrong, just to maintain the status quo. Cassandra usually has some sort of personality quirk that makes her seem less believable, or her information may come from epistemologically shaky grounds like Tarot cards or dreams, but her record of near-perfect accuracy really should be enough to make the others listen to her.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })The Trope Namer is the mythical seer Cassandra, who was cursed by the god Apollo to give prophecies which were always true but never believed, thus making this trope Older Than Feudalism.
In natural disaster movies or Science Is Bad stories, Cassandra will usually be an Ignored Expert: a scientist or other expert acting as the lone voice of sanity. This character's role is to warn the others not to take a particular course of action — that will, of course, be taken. On the other hand, if Cassandra is one of the underclass, such as a street preacher or one of those Crazy Homeless People, the Doomsayer trope applies.
Subtrope of Cassandra Truth. Compare Crying Wolf, where a character is not believed when they tell the truth because everything else he's said has been a lie, You Have to Believe Me!, where the character is not believed because he and his story sound completely crazy, and Dude, Where's My Respect?, which is often the result of this. See also Harbinger of Impending Doom. Cassandra Did It is when the cast add insult to injury by blaming Cassandra for the very disaster she tried to warn them about.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Compare Mad Oracle, when a character isn't ignored for predicting the future, but because predicting the future has driven him mad.
If Cassandra is a Waif Prophet or an Oracular Urchin, this may be because of All the Other Reindeer.

Coop of Kid vs. Kat constantly tries to warn his town about Kat's evil schemes, only to earn a reputation as both a liar and a lunatic. However, unlike most examples, Coop gradually seems to realize his status as The Cassandra, eventually focusing on simply sabotaging Kat's plans privately instead of warning people about them. Fortunately, he's thrown a bone in the form of his best friend Dennis and his girlfriend Fiona, who are both aware of Kat's actual identity and are happy to help Coop out.

Heralds of Valdemar: In Arrow's Fall, Empath Talia has demonstrated a flawless track record of reading people, but is still doubted and ridiculed when she attempts to expose Evil Chancellor Lord Orthallen. Her fellow Heralds are at least willing to give her the benefit of the doubt, but Valdemar's councillors are not Heralds and see no reason to believe a girl barely out of training over a man with 20 years of service to the kingdom and enormous personal and political power. Orthallen, in his turn, recognizes Talia's threat to him and sows rumors to cast doubt on her reliability.

In Homeland, Carrie Matheson is right about everything, always. No one believes her, ever, not even Saul, her friend and mentor. Of course, given that she is bipolar...
Amusingly this series is also a direct retelling of the myth with Brody in the role of Apollo.

Cassandra herself was a secondary character in the TV series based on Disney's Hercules. She's very bitter about her lot in life, though it centers around her curse of predicting Bad Future visions, which are often ignored until it's too late.

Antryg Windrose, the title character of The Windrose Chronicles, uses Holmes-ish deductive reasoning to figure out things that everyone else then assumes only the villain could know. Between that and his checkered past, he's never believed by anyone in a position of authority - and on the rare occasions when this is not true, he winds up being banned, banished and locked up anyway for telling truths people don't want to hear. Fortunately, he has the patience of a saint.

Kotoura-san has a very strange case which is partly caused by Values Dissonance. Japanese has the tendency to hide their thoughts as socially appropriate by lying. Haruka is a telepath who couldn't turn it off nor could she distinguish between thought and speech, and, what's worse, Innocently Insensitive. As a result, she was called a compulsive liar for blurting out what others were thinking. If not for her grandfather's protection she may actually have sent to the psychiatric ward already, as her mother, up to this day, still thinks she is severely delusional.

This is Toxic Crusaders character Psycho in a nutshell: his entire purpose is to point out to Dr. Killemoff how his latest plan can go wrong, usually involving really unlikely circumstances that nevertheless always end up happening and yet Killemoff never listens to him, despite his predictions having always been right.

Alison DuBois of Medium gets this from her own husband almost Once an Episode. (Interestingly, the district attorney and his lot are much more open to believing her - they only refuse to act because it would bring suspicion on them, not because they discount her abilities.) She has a dream and wakes up freaked out next to him; Joe tells her to go back to sleep because it was "just a dream". This despite the fact that every week she has a prophetic dream, and the entire plot revolves around how she prevents, corrects, or figures out what her dream meant.

The Harry Potter series contains two examples:
Harry himself, despite being The Chosen One, frequently gets this treatment, especially from his best friends. So much so that Dumbledore freely admits that part of his plan in the seventh book is counting on Hermione's Arbitrary Skepticism to slow Harry down long enough to think things through properly.
Professor Trelawny is a bizarre version, in that she's her own Cassandra- she tends to dismiss the prophecies she makes that actually come true (like the tarot cards that tell her that a 'dark young man, possibly troubled, one who dislikes the questioner" is nearby when Harry's hiding near her, and not remembering her true prophecies at all), and seems to believe more fervently in the hogwash ones (although she may be pulling a Haruhi and unable to overcome her inner doubt no matter how much she wants to). It's also played straight, as Trelawney is widely considered a loony and no one actually puts much stock in her prophecies (although Dumbledore knows better, since he's been on the receiving end of one of her True Prophecies). Most of the predictions she makes are dismissed by the cast as rubbish, but a re-read of the books shows that her predictions do actually provide a lot of foreshadowing and almost always come true in some way or another (e.g. Trelawney sees a large black dog connected with Harry, which is really Sirius's Animagus form).

Jim Sterling of the Jimquisition has recently called himself this on video game news, and for good reason. He has correctly predicted Steam's need for better quality games, how loot boxes were going to be a problem, and even that Visceral Games was going to be shut down by Electronic Arts. At the time, no one believed him and dismissed his claims, usually because he's crude and very critical on his videos. But it turns out he was right every time, and he may just be right on the new issue of how Micro-transactions will eventually blow up in a disastrous way...

In The Dresden Files, this trope is a supernatural medical condition known as "Cassandra's Tears". The cure is fairly straightforward: If someone actually believes the prophecy and acts on it, the condition will go away. However, the condition is also very easy to fake and is a semi-common hook in paranormal confidence games, so people tend to be wary of attempting to cure it.

In Yu-Gi-Oh! Ishizu Ishstar is the keeper of the Millennium Necklace, which grants her the power to see the future, which grants her very accurate predictions. Throughout the Battle City arc, Ishizu predicts the great battle between good and evil, and warns the main cast of the terrible things to come. Yugi and his friends actually listen to her prophecies, but Seto Kaiba practically mocks her every single time. Ishizu's predictions fail her only once, which is during her duel with Kaiba, and only because of the spirit of his Blue Eyes. Even after she gives away her necklace, Ishizu continues to predict the coming battle, so, so much, it's like her most common dialogue.

Astrid in Garry Kilworth's novel House of Tribes is known far and wide for her prophetic powers. Naturally, when one of her visions is politically inconvenient, everyone comes up with reasons to assume she's wrong and blunders ahead anyway. After her vision comes true, her prophetic stock shoots up twenty places... until the next vision, which is again inconvenient and is again ignored by quite a lot of characters. There's a message in there somewhere.

In an episode of Columbo, some corrupt local politician pulled strings to have Columbo assigned to investigate the crime he committed, thinking Columbo was too "bumbling and stupid" to catch him... even though Columbo had successfully solved every single case he'd ever been assigned to solve (or at least all the ones seen by the audience). This was especially common with early-season Columbo.

Trapped: The Alex Cooper Story: Alex, a teenage lesbian who's being held in a brutal conversion therapy camp, receives no assistance whenever she tries to ask for help. The people she asks either don't believe her or else are homophobes themselves and don't care as long as she gets "cured".

Dangerous Davies, The Last Detective, is always right when he suspects there's more to a death than meets the eye. This does not stop his DI from belittling and ignoring him whenever possible.

A spy in "Gilligan Vs. Gilligan" in "Gilligan's Island"(season 3, 1966), played like Gilligan by Bob Denver himself, looks just like Gilligan, carrying a many use pocket swiss Army knife, and no one believes Gilligan when he and the spy (who is NEVER found out by the others for who he is) are confused for the other.

Silver in Prison Island Break. Nobody really believes he knows the future, and he hates being able to see it as it does him little good.
Word of God is that the author used this 'psychic' approach as opposed to the contorted time-travelling that took place in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) (when Silver first canonically appeared).

Phineas and Ferb has two Cassandras:
Candace is constantly trying to prove to her mother that her brothers, the title characters, build all kinds of crazy projects in their backyard, but the evidence of said crazy projects has always vanished by the time she gets her mother's attention.
Vanessa tries to prove to her mother her father is a Mad Scientist, but it always fails, largely because Doctor Doofenshmirtz isn't really good at villainy.

Pokédex:
According to some legends, Articuno. Everyone assumes due to other legends that it will lead people do their doom, so they run away from it without realizing it was trying to lead them to safety.
The crews of ghost ships are not killed by Jellicent like everyone believes, but imprisoned in an Underwater City made of shipwrecks to create technology for their jailors. Those few sailors who escape and make it to shore are always taken for madmen or liars.
Absol is also an example, due to people recognizing the danger of listening to it, though this just obliterates their chances of surviving a disaster altogether.

In Pokémon: The First Movie, there is a harbor manager that is named voyager in the Japanese version, she and officer jenny attempt to warn all the young Pokémon trainers, including Ash and his friends, from attempting to reach Mewtwo;s island for the greatest Pokémon challenge, because of the dangerous conditions of the storm. In the English dub, the mysterious woman attempts to convince the trainers not to go by telling them the story of the " winds of water", which was a terrible ancient storm that drowned all humans and Pokémon, and only through the tears of the surviving Pokémon, the victims were brought back to life, this story foreshadows the ending of the movie. The woman fears that the storm is occurring again and that none of the trainers will survive if they continue to the island. Despite this warning, all the trainers, including Ash, still head out to the island using their Pokémon. Officer Jenny and the harbor manager can only watch, and the women gives one last testimony.

Fanny Price of Mansfield Park, because of her outsider status within the family, is the only one who can clearly see forthcoming troubles. She worries about her cousin Maria's upcoming marriage to the rich but stupid Rushworth because it's perfectly plain that Maria doesn't love or respect him. She is the only one who sees that Henry Crawford is The Casanova and blames him for destroying Maria and Julia's peace of mind, which is why she refuses his proposal herself. She, unlike Edmund, never believes that Mary Crawford's love of wealth and status can be reasoned away with "better society." However, Fanny is so diffident and unwilling to criticize her "betters" that she voices her concerns only to her cousin Edmund, and he easily dismisses them because she is so cautious in her expressions and he is too blinded by his affection for the Crawfords. The result? Maria and Henry have an affair (resulting in her divorce and exile from society) and Edmund has his heart broken when Mary callously wishes his older brother dead so that Edmund can inherit.

PJ on Goof Troop is almost always the first (if not the only) person to notice something's gone wrong. He's also usually ignored, due to his total lack of assertiveness. However, "Tub Be or Not Tub Be" and "Talent to the Max" are even worse—he, who doesn't lie for his own self-interest without coaxing, and who has Undying Loyalty towards Max, is accused of betraying him. He tries to tell Max that he didn't mean to cheat and was trying to undo all the booby traps in the former, and that Max needs to dump the magic hat like a bad habit in the latter, but Max doesn't believe him.

Game of Thrones:
Zigzagged with Catelyn. Her safety concerns about Bran's climbing turn out to be more than justified. Her firstborn, Robb, consistently ignores her well-reasoned advice of being wary of the Greyjoys, Karstarks and Freys, with disastrous results. On the other hand, she also tells her husband to trust Littlefinger, which is hands down the dumbest thing you can do in Westeros. And while she does warn Robb to be wary of the Freys, she also vouches for them, saying Walder Frey would never do anything to harm her.
Early in Season 5, Kevan tells Cersei that the Sparrows are dangerous fanatics, and should not be given power or treated lightly. She doesn't listen.
Varys is a light case of this as pretty much no-one in the series takes his advice and warnings seriously and it has a habit of coming back to bite everyone in the ass.
His warnings and attempts to advise Ned are not heeded until far too late.
His repeated attempts to get Shae out of harm's way by either attempting to bribe her or increasingly dire warnings to Tyrion are not heeded until the literal last minute, and ultimately fail.
His warnings to literally everyone about how dangerous Littlefinger is have been universally ignored despite the entire War of the Five Kings, the bankruptcy of Westeros, and the death of Joffrey all being Littlefinger's doing.
Jaime Lannister also noted to Brienne that Varys warned Aerys not to open the doors of King's Landing to Tywin, believing quite rightly that Tywin had scented a Kingmaker Scenario and wanted to finish Aerys and King's Landing for good.
Stannis Baratheon:
During the rebellion, Stannis told Robert not to go so far west so soon, Robert never listened and got defeated by Randyll Tarly for it in the Battle of Ashford, which directly lead to the Tyrell siege of Storm's End, the cause of much misery and slights to Stannis.
Stannis counsels Jon not to keep his enemies close. Jon tries the opposite approach with Alliser Thorne and is assassinated for it. Likewise both Stannis and Ser Davos insist that he support the King and become Lord Stark and help him take the North from the Boltons. Jon refuses citing his Night's Watch oaths, but in Season 6 he more or less gets forced by circumstances to do what Stannis insisted to start with.
Stannis insisted that Mance Rayder bend the knee in the interests of his people. He refuses and gets executed for his trouble and Tormund agreed with Mance, but in Season 7, he admits that Mance should have bent the knee noting that the lives lost in Hardhome and other conflicts could have been saved if Mance submitted and preserved the alliance.
Stannis told Samwell Tarly about the dragonglass in his island fortress and encouraged him to keep reading. Eventually, Samwell Tarly, on going to the Citadel and following the King's advice, comes across information about the dragonglass in Dragonstone and mutters that he should have listened to Stannis.

Doctor Who: The Doctor. How many times has he charged around trying to get people to believe what he's saying? That he's talking about alien invasions and often dresses like a complete weirdo probably doesn't help his case. And unlike many other people on this list, he's usually not dealing with the same basic cast every episode.
Subverted in the new series: UNIT trusts the Doctor, just not enough to listen to his advice about running away from the Sontarans. Also, using a metaphor involving the sonic screwdriver and a pane of glass, he managed to convince Yvonne Hartman, leader of Torchwood 1, that the dimensional device was tearing holes in reality and she had to stop. That didn't prevent the Cybermen and the Daleks from invading, though.
And in "Midnight", it becomes apparent that without a companion around, his social skills might not be sufficient to get people to believe him — resulting in total Nightmare Fuel.
On one occasion, while within the biggest library in the universe, he convinced a group of aliens to "look him up". They do. And behave themselves afterwards.
Recent seasons have many people believe that the Doctor is technically right, but there wouldn't be trouble in the first place if he'd just stay the hell away.
Except after seeing "Turn Left", it turns out every bad thing he prevented would have happened anyway even if he'd died in the first episode of the season. the only reason the Earth wasn't destroyed entirely was because of the secondary characters picking up a bit of the slack (not enough, but some).
Averted in "The Eleventh Hour". He warns the Atraxi against messing with Earth and tells them to run. They do. Really really fast.

Though she isn't normally, Lydia Martin in Teen Wolf is a Cassandra in "Riddled", when she insists to the skeptical sheriff that she knows where Stiles is but turns out to be wrong. Throughout most of the series, this trope is averted by the fact that almost every main character at one point or another tells Lydia that they believe her about what she feels.

In Veronica Mars, Veronica will, without fail, get to the bottom of any mystery, embarrassing the guilty Jerk Jock, Alpha Bitch, or idiot sheriff in the process. Despite this, the town residents only ever react to her questioning them with smug indifference. Not only that, but she spends the entire first season trying to figure out who killed her best friend, Lilly. It turns out to have been Aaron Echolls, the father of Lilly's ex-boyfriend and Veronica's boyfriend at the time she figures it out. Unfortunately, when it goes to trial he gets off Scott free (not counting getting shot in the head by Wiedmann) because Logan destroys the sex tapes, and no one believes Veronica or Logan when they testify that they saw the tapes themselves. Even worse, Aaron nearly burned Veronica to death and beat the crap out of her father, but in the trial he claims that Veronica accidentally crashed her car, and they were waiting at the nearest house when Keith found them and attacked him. And the only other witness, the owner of the house, mysteriously went missing. Seriously though, you think these people would learn to trust V's gut once in a while.

In Buffy the Vampire Slayer there was a girl actually named Cassie who predicted her own death. Buffy didn't believe her and tried to change her fate, but Cassie was right and died anyway. She was almost killed by the Monster of the Week before being saved by Buffy, only to immediately die from an unknown heart condition.
Buffy was in this situation a few times, such as when she thinks her mother's new boyfriend is evil and that her new college roommate is a demon. In both of these instances, the others assume her to be overreacting to feeling uncomfortable about having her mother dating someone (who actually seems very nice) and having a roommate who's just very annoying.

In Firefly, River freaks out = something bad happens is common, and yet Simon still always tries to convince her that there is nothing to worry about. Finally subverted in the movie, where they use her ability to sense trouble as an early warning system.
In Mal and company's defense, she is crazy. Remember the fear of Book's hair?
And if Zoe didn't have things to do, she'd be hiding with River.

No one listens to Mikhail Kutuzov in War and Peace. Battle of Austerlitz? Bad idea, says Kutuzov. The Russians intervene and get their asses handed to them and Napoleon conquers Austria. Oh well, no big deal.

Several of the earlier Sherlock Holmes stories, perhaps most particularly A Study in Scarlet, show the great detective being mocked by the official police for his unusual methods and seemingly bizarre theories. Over time, however, as they find he's right almost unfailingly, the police shift their opinion and become admirers of Holmes. Lestrade even comments on it in The Adventure of the Six Napoleons, saying that they're not at all jealous of him at Scotland Yard, but on the contrary, "we are very proud of you." Holmes's reaction shows just how much the comment means to him.

And Star Trek: Voyager has Reginald Barclay who's ignored because of his stammer and general oddness.

On The Mentalist, Patrick Jane is never wrong. About anything. Ever. If he expresses an opinion about how a crime was done, where it was done, who did it, or what a suspect is thinking or feeling, he's always right on the money. Doesn't stop Lisbon and the CBI brass from regularly assuming that he just happens to be wrong this time, his previous 100% success rate notwithstanding.

Age of Bronze: As another rendition of the Trope Namer, Cassandra's predictions are generally not believed. In this incarnation's case, she is mentally unstable and likely suffering ongoing emotional trauma from being raped as a child. Many of her predictions are rendered in riddles only clear after the fact, and several apply to distant events, such as Achilles' slaying of Mnemon, making it impossible for the Trojans to verify.

Throughout the first season of Merlin (2008), Morgana was seldom believed when she had a prophetic nightmare about something. Justified in that she was afraid to reveal her powers and so passed off her visions as vague "feelings about things" and subverted in that the people who did believe her wanted to keep her in the dark about how accurate her dreams really were.

G'Kar of Babylon 5 has been described as JMS's Cassandra: at various points, he predicts what will happen; but no one believes him, mostly because they don't want to. For example, he tries to warn other races that the Centauri, having conquered the Narn, will turn their attention to others... which they promptly do. And other times, people who know he's telling the truth ahemDelenn and Sinclairahem won't back him up because they don't want the information getting out yet.

There is a gypsy moth in the Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers episode who predicts a soon and certain end to Chip's life. The Rangers' leader refuses to believe in that prophecy and continues on the case until all details but one have come true. The name of the moth is... Cassandra.

Poor, poor Sally the Rag Doll in The Nightmare Before Christmas is the only person in all of Halloween Town that realizes that Jack's plan to take over Christmas is a bad one, and that people won't like being scared on the happiest holiday of the year. She even has a vision about the disaster that awaits Jack if he switches places with Santa Claus. True to this trope, no one listens to her.

Star Trek: The Next Generation of course has Wesley Crusher, who's never believed because of his youth, or presumed inexperience. Not only is he consistently right, but several times his ideas could be trivially verified, but are ignored.
And Star Trek: Voyager has Reginald Barclay who's ignored because of his stammer and general oddness.
