* In Chapter 33 of ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'', Professor Oak has to undergo a minor surgery, and thus is left out of comission for an entire day. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, that means Ash's female companions can't contact him for help when Ash is forcibly kidnapped by Sabrina.]]

* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', Kakashi and Sasuke are viciously subjected to Tsukuyomi, a very dangerous Uchiha-exclusive Genjutsu, which leaves them completely helpless and unresponsive to the world around them until Tsunade returns to konohonagakure and cures them.
** [[spoiler: Tsunade was put in a coma after the Pain Invasion Arc, letting Danzo take over the village, and she came out of it right after he died.]]

If they're not long term, comas are usually treated as the step before [[KilledOffForReal death]] for someone who's ill (precisely in reversal to RealLife, where the longer you are in coma, the less chance you have to ever get out of it). Being told that the patient has "slipped into a coma" is generally a signal to the heroes to hurry up and find the cure. Staying beside and talking to the comatose person, often in shifts to allow each character in an ensemble to pour their hearts out, is usually a given. Expect a MistimedRevival to result just as they leave. If they don't make it in time, the comatose friend will ''invariably'' wake up, say they heard everything, and deliver a heartwrenching FinalSpeech before quietly slipping off.

* Before the events of the ''ComicBook/SuperiorSpiderMan'' comic series, {{Spider-Man}} supporting character Madame Web falls into a coma. Coincidentally, she could've perfectly discovered and revealed that [[spoiler:Doctor Octopus had swapped bodies with the true Spider-Man]] if she had been around.

* ''Film/TalkToHer'': The entire premise of this film is: "Will the girls wake up?" Where, in real life, there is usually little question and the person simply stays that way until he or she dies.

Where, in real life, there is usually little question of whether or not the women, Lydia and the person simply stays Alicia, will wake up. The expectation that way until he or she dies.either will wake up is low, as urged by the doctor who is upfront that patients with the level of damage that Lydia has will die, but as the men involved are in love with the patients, they stubbornly keep hope that they will indeed wake up. [[spoiler:Alicia does, but Lydia doesn't.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeTheMovie'', Duke is grievously and bloodily wounded by Serpentor's snake staff. He uses his last wheezing gasp to force out the words "Go... Joe..." before collapsing, at which point Scarlett hilariously exclaims "He's gone into a coma!" He stays in it for the entirety of the movie and comes out at the end offscreen. The original plan had been to kill Duke off, but ''WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie'' came out a short time earlier and the writers hastily rewrote the scene to avoid seeming to copy Optimus Prime's death.

** When it comes to SoapOperas, in general, there are way to many to count. Sometimes, as in the above case, it leads to the PlotRelevantAgeUp. More often, it's just a case of TheOtherDarrin.

* Frequently used to NeverSayDie in the [[{{Bowdlerise}} Bowdlerisation]] of several Anime dubs intended to be syndicated on US television [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment "For Kids"]]. Not really convenient for the victim, but rather for the dubbing company. Case-in-point, [[spoiler:Shun's mom]] in ''Anime/{{Bakugan}}''. (Which, admittedly, is dubbed by {{Nelvana}}...)
