* In the Book of Mormon, Alma the Younger got up to a lot of anti-church antics as a kid. After an angel appeared to chastise him for this behavior, Alma fell into a deep sleep that lasted two days and during which he faced his sins and was forgiven.



* Subverted in the {{Dragonlance}} novel, Dragons of Spring Dawning. The [[BadassInDistress captive Golden General]], Laurana seems to go catatonic after hearing that [[FateWorseThanDeath she is going to be tortured to death and have her soul given to a death knight]] and seeing her LoveInterest Tanis Half-Elven serving her ArchEnemy, the Dragon Highlord Kitiara. In fact Laurana is just luring her enemies into a false sense of security and, as soon as Kitiara has completely disregarded her as a threat, she breaks free, [[CurbStompBattle curbstomps Kitiara]], and makes her escape.

* ''Manga/{{InuYasha}}'': Sango falls into one when she first joins Inuyasha's group, not waking up for ten days. While a big part of it is due to the wounds she suffered beforehand, Miroku believes that at least part of it is because, thanks to [[BigBad Naraku]], Sango has literally lost ''everything'' she loved and cared for.

** Actually, it only lasts one day, or one scene in combat.

* This is a game mechanic in ''{{Exalted}}''. Solar Exalts with high Compassion can take Heart of Tears as their virtue flaw, leaving them totally unable to do anything but weep (and flee from combat if attacked) for several days, once they've seen enough innocents suffer.

* Several games with a SanityMeter or a fear system can cause this to happen. ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}, DarkHeresy,'' and ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu'' can each have this occur in different ways. Likewise, some of the most extreme possible results from a failed "Fright Check" in ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}'' can put the character into a coma.

Sometimes called Post Traumatic Catatonia, this refers to a situation in which a character enters a comatose or catatonic state that is either directly caused by his personal problems, or cured by dealing with his personal problems, or both. Often, the cure comes when the character confronts his demons in a hallucinatory VisionQuest, sometimes accompanied by one or more friends or loved ones who take a JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind. For some reason, this condition is often associated with / exacerbated by GiantMecha.

Upon awakening the victim of the coma may behave in a surprisingly happy and upbeat manner. For some reason, this condition is often associated with / exacerbated by GiantMecha.



* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' "[[Recap/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheEarthKing The Earth King]]", Zuko [[SickEpisode undergoes a severe fever]] and enters a coma in which he has vivid dreams in which his uncle and sister appear as dragons and argue over his life choices and another in which he seems to awaken only to look in the mirror and see himself as the Avatar (Zukotar?). Iroh says that this is "not a natural illness" and the whole thing is apparently caused solely by Zuko's self-conflict.
