A person who cleanly awakens from this without the benefit of a nursing staff and a bedpan is certainly invoking the trope of NobodyPoops or RipVanTinkle.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. Aang is actually ''killed'' by Azula's lightning bolt before being revived by Katara's [[MacGuffin magic spirit water]] and was out so long that [[ExpositoryHairstyleChange his hair had enough time to grow back]]. He definitely isn't well when he first wakes up, and only Katara's extensive [[HealingHands healing]] lets him recover so quickly.

* In ''Literature/TheLostYearsOfMerlin'' this happens practically [[OnePerEpisode Once Per Book]]. The last book is particularly notable: Merlin passes out while on a very strict deadline, since Fincayra is going to be invaded by [[BigBad Rhita Gawr]] in just a few days. He wakes up to notice the sun has barely moved and is relieved that he was only out for about an hour...only to discover it was more like twenty-five.

* One of the [[LOadsAndLoadsOfCharacters ridiculous number of characters]] in the ''Literature/Timeline191'' series by Creator/HarryTurtledove is a US Army Air Force fighter pilot called John Moss. During the [[InSpiteOfANail historical analogue]] to the Battle of Britain he ends up so badly sleep-deprived that when he finally crashes out (aided and abetted by a sleeping pill the airbase's Chief Medical Officer had to con him into taking) he wakes up two straight days later, having ''slept through an air-raid''; not even being carried from his bunk and unceremoniously tossed into a slit-trench while Confederate dive-bombers were shooting the place up was enough to rouse him.

* In the ''Literature/PitDragonChronicles'', Jakkin spends too much time outside in the coldest part of night (on a planet where that's deadly). He learns in the hospital that he was out for a week, presumably in part from medicinal drugs.
* In ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfThomasCovenant'', Covenant does this repeatedly. He says that life as a leper has given him practice.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel II'' opens with protagonist Rean Schwarzer awakening atop a snowy mountain range with his massive robotic combat knight Valimar after having been asleep for a month due to Valimar being badly damaged in the dramatic battle at the end of the original game. The Awakener shares the pain and damage, but Valimar has expended a massive amount of mana energy, all in bringing Rean back to health.
