* Desmond Doss has two in ''Film/HacksawRidge''. In the first, he relives a memory of his fight with his father (see TheAtoner above), waking up abruptly when the gun goes off during the struggle. The second one is during the night on the ridge as he and Smitty are resting in a foxhole. Desmond sees a flare go up overhead and lifts his head to look out of the hole, only to find himself face-to-face with a squad of Japanese soldiers, who then proceed to storm the hole, killing Smitty while one of the soldiers is about to kill Desmond with a sword. Desmond wakes up right as he's about to die.

* Rei in ''FatalFrame III'' does this every time she goes through an episode of story (called "hour" in-game), but given this is a SurvivalHorror game and the story happens in a series of nightmarish DreamSequence, it works as a game mechanic to signal to the player that said episode has been successfully completed. She averts this trope when she wakes up peacefully at the end, after the curse plaguing her has finally been lifted once and for all [[IncrediblyLamePun and the nightmares are over]].

*Paul does this every time he manages to fall asleep in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World''. This is a JustifiedTrope because he's got SuperStrength and is having nightmares about it, so when he thrashes while asleep, he invariably flings himself into the air. Once he thrashed himself over the side of the mesa the four were camping on, and woke up in a Paul-shaped hole.

** Happens recently in the episode "Pork and Burns". In a possible parody of House M.D., jars of mayonaise are hospital workers and they help 'cure' sandwiches. The scoreboard has a list of delicate goods, but the last line is what causes Homer to wake up.
-->'''Homer:''' Fruit?! What a nightmare!

* Sansa Stark experiences one in the second season of ''Series/GameOfThrones''. She's dreaming of her experience of nearly being raped in the previous episode. She wakes up, to find out she has started her first menstruation. In any other world, this might be a good thing, except in [[CrapsackWorld Westeros]], Sansa now knows that [[TheCaligula King Joffrey]] [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil will now rape her]] [[FromBadtoWorse in the hopes of producing an heir.]]
