* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamVR'' opens with a flashback to Bruce witnessing the death of his parents. Additionally, the whole game is strongly implied to be this, more specifically a nightmare about the Joker's blood infection as it's an {{interquel}} between ''[[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity Arkham City]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight Arkham Knight]]''. There are hints throughout including a coded message that once decode is telling Bruce to wake up, all the alarms sound like the alarm clock heard at the start of the game, the song "Rock-A-Bye, Baby" being a RecurringRiff, and the game features the deaths of Nightwing and Robin (the former even kicking off the plot) despite them being alive in ''Knight''.

* Craig Ferguson ended his final episode as host of ''Series/TheLateLateShow'' with this. His entire time hosting the show was all just a dream... of [[Series/TheDrewCareyShow Nigel Wick]], who wakes up in bed next to a still-fat Drew Carey and tells him all about his horrible dream where he had to host a late night talk show with a fake horse and a robot skeleton for 10 years, Drew [[Series/ThePriceIsRight became a game show host]], and most frightening of all... ''[[FauxHorriffic Drew got skinny]]''. Drew calms Wick down and they both go back to sleep. Then the camera pans over to the end table on Wick's side of the bed, showing [[Series/StElsewhere a snow globe containing the talk show's set with said robot skeleton and fake horse]]. Also, since no AllJustADream ending would be complete without a ''Series/{{Newhart}}'' reference, the dream first started to unravel when Craig decided to ask who was actually in the horse costume, only to discover that it was Bob Newhart himself.

* The alternate ending to ''Series/BreakingBad'' (as seen on DVD) played this completely for laughs. In it, Walter White's death plays out the same as it does in the actual finale, but then Hal from ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle'' wakes up, having dreamed the whole series. He then tells Lois about his terrifying dream where he was a world-class meth cook with a shaved head (to which Lois laughs at the idea of him cooking ''anything''), and there was this guy who "looked like the guy from ''Series/TheShield''", and this kid who said "[[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch the b-word]]" a lot. This is very similar to the Newhart finale below.

And just to up the ''Newhart'' reference, the dream started unraveling when Secretariat (the fake horse) lifted up its head to reveal that Newhart had been playing the part all along, and then says to Ferguson "Hey, guy, it's your dream".

** In a fake clip-show episode, the group takes Abed to a psychiatrist who eventually reveals that the Community College they were recently expelled from was actually a shared delusion they all had in an insane asylum and the fact that they think its real means they're all relapsing. There were even clips of them in the asylum playing out scenes from the show. It doesn't take long for them to realize he's lying, and when cornered he admits to being an actor hired by Chang to keep them from trying to go back to the college.

* ''VideoGame/Prey2017'' turns out to have the entire game be nothing but a simulation to test a Typhon that has been infused with [[PlayerCharacter Morgan Yu]]'s memories. The Typhon have already invaded earth and the simulation for this Typhon-Human hybrid was meant to test if Typhon with mirror neurons would be able to empathize with humans and potentially lead to a chance of co-existence between the Typhon and humans.

* The last episode of ''Series/StElsewhere'' reveals that the entire series has taken place in the mind of an autistic child. If you accept that crossovers between shows imply that they occupy the same fictional universe, an argument can be made that no fewer than [[http://yujinishuge.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/crossoversscaled.jpg 282 shows]] were figments of Tommy Westphall's imagination, including both ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' and ''Series/DoctorWho'', along with their spin-offs. The aforementioned picture seems to have a very low threshold for calling a show a cross-over, however; it includes minor {{shout out}}s as linkage. [[http://www.poobala.com/crossoverlist.html Another crossover database site]] gives a more conservative estimate, setting nearly a hundred shows within young Tommy's mind.
