* In ''[[Fanfic/LeviathanMyHeroAcademia Leviathan]]'', Izuku suffers from these fairly frequently, having a particular NightmareSequence that he's very familiar with. It consists of him being all alone while clinging to a streetlight on a dark, foggy night as the Leviathan looks him dead in the eyes and roars. Normally, he's able to comfort himself with the fact that it was AllJustADream. [[spoiler:But Izuku has a different nightmare the night after Aizawa's test, in which Blade stumbles towards him as an eviscerated walking cadaver that's falling apart at the seams, as if to remind Izuku of the fact that he has killed people, before the Leviathan barrels towards Izuku and swallows him whole. It turns eerily prophetic when Izuku starts flipping through the news channels and finds that Blade has escaped custody, causing Izuku to run to the bathroom and vomit in disgust and terror.]]

YourWorstNightmare may be mistaken for Bad Dreams. When the character suffers from TraumaInducedAmnesia, they can overlap with DreamingTheTruth.

Contrast DreamingOfThingsToCome. When the dreams are symbolic, they can not always be distinguished; dreams of a villain could be remembering the past encounters, or foreshadowing future ones. Also contrast TalkingInYourDreams. The character may not be able to tell that someone is communicating because the means are bringing up memories.

May be a FeverDreamEpisode. Supertrope of FlashbackNightmare, which always shows the nightmare and is literal. These are often RecurringDreams, at least by implication. May be caused by buried memories from AlternateIdentityAmnesia.
