* In the ''Slender Mansion'' map of ''Slender'', the main character is in a coma due to "Slender Sickness" from being stalked by the slender man. He is being chased through a house in his mind as he collects mementos. [[spoiler:If the player fails to collect the mementos in time, is caught by the slender man, or can't escape the dark house, the main character dies in the "real world."]]

* In the ''[[BattleTechExpandedUniverse [=BattleTech=]]]'' novel ''Literature/GraveCovenant'', Victor Steiner-Davion has one of these after an assassination attempt on him. He finds himself having a conversation with his father and his father's fiercest rival (both deceased), ends on a note of telling them to their faces that he has his own life to tend to and destiny to make regardless of ''their'' approval or lack thereof, and not too surprisingly wakes up in the hospital for the first time right at the end of the same chapter.

* [[MindScrew Possibly]] the case of [[spoiler:Audrey's situation]] in ''Series/TwinPeaks: The Return''. It was mentioned that she ended up in a coma after getting involved in an explosion in the season two finale, and all of the other characters (including [[spoiler:her own son]]) rarely mention her and none of her scenes involve any characters from the original series. Her final scene in which she [[spoiler:suddenly appears in an all white room and facing a mirror in shock]] can be interpreted as her symbolically waking up from the coma.

A character is unconscious and near-death, and has an abnormally realistic dream. The world may be completely different from our own, but the kicker is that what you do in the dreamworld is ''[[YourMindMakesItReal critical to whether you wake up in the real world]].'' This can be a result of magic, divine intervention, or purely symbolic of their struggle to remain alive, but it will rarely be addressed since it's more fun to leave it up to the audience as to whether it was real or not. Having this be the premise of a story or sequence allows writers to have the benefits of a DreamSequence or AllJustADream story (it doesn't have to impact any other characters or the world in general, it can be much weirder than usual, and it can explore the character's mind in a more visible way) while avoiding the problem of the sequence seeming to not matter since it didn't really happen- if the character has to make an effort in the dream world to wake up, then the effort really does make a difference.
