* Happens in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/CatDog'', where Cat plans to make Dog and Shriek fall for each other, hoping that the Greaser Dogs will thereby leave him alone. The rest of the episode is Cat's dream of what the consequences are: Dog marries Shriek, which causes the Greaser Dogs to move into their house and generally making Cat's life a living hell.

* The last issue of ''ComicBook/{{Gen 13}}'', vol. 1 combined this with a DownerEnding: The team -- along with various other gen-active teens they'd met along the course of the series -- has one last hedonistic, live-like-there's-no-tomorrow-cuz-there-ain't good time before "The End". Turns out this was all in Caitlin Fairchild's head, an extended hallucination brought on by the effects of another gen-active's powers in the split-second before a DeathTrap disintegrated them all (they got better).

* ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'' Episode 18 revolves around Yu, a teenager who has been turned into an assassin by having his [[GrandTheftMe late father's mind downloaded into him]]. Yu is incapacitated by the Major before he can stab the politician he is targeting, but then activates an explosive device, seemingly killing everyone in the vicinity. It's then revealed that this was all a false memory that had been digitally written into Yu's cyberbrain, as tricking him into thinking the assassination was successful was the only way to get rid of the father's memories.

* In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone'' Harry wakes up the night after Hagrid's visit and ''thinks'' the visit with all the talk of magic and a school he gets to go to away from the Dursleys was all only a dream, and then Hagrid offers him some breakfast.

Added DiffLines:

* The main gameplay of ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys4'' is strongly implied to be a nightmare the child protagonist is having, with the distorted and monstrous animatronics even bearing the "Nightmare" moniker (Nightmare Freddy, Nightmare Foxy, Nightmare etc). There's also some overlap with AdventuresInComaland, since the ending reveals the child suffered a serious head injury thanks to a DeadlyPrank (and [[EasterEgg pills, flowers, and an IV drip can occasionally be seen near the bed]]).

* ''Hecatomb'' had a literal "It Was Only A Dream" card which can eliminate practically any card your opponent has out, essentially making them have never happened.

* The Phineas and Ferb valentine's day fic [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9002326/1/Lovey-Dovey Lovey-Dovey]] turns out to be Perry's dream, but whether or not the dream comes true after the story ends is up to interpretation.

* Invoked in the ''Literature/LandOfOz'' fic ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/256453 Patient]]''. A now seventeen year old Dorothy wakes up in an asylum with no memories of the last eight years. At the asylum, she befriends a girl who thinks she is royalty. The reader is led to believe Oz was all a fantasy, until it's revealed that Dorothy is still in Oz. Her friends are trying to make her believe she's in Kansas while she's an amnesiac so that she doesn't become too stressed. The fic pokes fun at this trope and [[Film/TheWizardOfOz the MGM film]].

Added DiffLines:

* This was enforced in the 1925 RaceFilm ''Body and Soul''. Due to one of the characters being a criminal pretending to be a pastor, censors were upset over the film. Four reels were cut and a new ending was quickly shot where it turned out it was all just a dream.
