* An early issue of the Mirage ''[[ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesMirage Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]]'' comic featured comic book artist [[JackKirby Kirby King]], who found a crystal that would allow everything he drew come to life before disappearing to an alternate world. The story was later adapted to a picture book and [[TMNT2003 the second cartoon]]. Much later on it is revealed that the crystal had been previously used by [[spoiler: April's father]], and that she was, in fact, one of the things he'd created with it.

* One character from Jack Vance's ''Literature/DyingEarth'' encounters an old man who never ceases playing a flute, and a young woman who claims to be his daughter, whose movements and moods always correspond to the music he plays. It's never stated outright, but it's strongly implied that she ''is'' the music of the flute, manifested in physical form, and he doesn't stop playing because she would die if he did.

* The (barely) recurring ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' villain Splatter Phoenix had this as her schtick. She had some kind of Applied Phlebotinum that could both bring her paintings to life and insert living people (including herself) into paintings, where they could then move from one painting to another. She also used it to steal the smile right off the Mona Lisa.

* In the ''BettyBoop'' cartoon ''Ha! Ha! Ha!'', when Koko the clown got a toothache, Betty drew a dentist's office, complete with a tank of laughing gas. After they both got buzzed on the gas and forgot to turn off the nozzle, the gas started flowing out of the drawing board into the real world.

* One of the informational videos in ''[[DesertStrike Soviet Strike]]'' implies that this is the reasoning behind the super helicopter the player flies. Specifically, the chief engineer of the project says that the reactive, adaptive armor was designed based on video games he'd played as a kid. He then specifically [[InvokedTrope invokes the trope]] as an explanation.

* Feena Sik of the [[GreenLantern Sinestro Corps]] brought her paintings to life in a magic ritual involving her husband's death, but her works all took on the nature of the deed and butchered their viewers. Law enforcement agents blacklisted all of her published work out of fear that any reprints would spontaneously come to life and kill again.
