* 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 one of the bystanders hilariously exclaims "he's slipped 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.

* ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'': In Chapter 13, Onni sends a summon long-distance to help the crew deal with a PlagueZombie ZergRush. This causes him to go into a PowerStrainBlackout induced DeepSleep. The DeepSleep in question lasted about two days when it happened to Lalli earlier in the story, but Onni's is likely to be longer due to the obviously higher level of the spell. In Chapter 14, that deals with the AfterActionPatchUp, Tuuri finds out about Onni's current state upon asking to talk to him over the radio to tell him some bad news. Since Onni doesn't handle bad news well, she considers the DeepSleep to be a good thing due to it giving Onni a few days of not knowing about the bad news in question, and even asks the rest of MissionControl to let her tell him over the radio rather than doing so themselves once he wakes up.
** The convenient part gets subverted when the radio on Tuuri's side is rendered permanently useless. The mages have a TalkingInYourDreams system they can use for long-distance communication, but Onni is the only mage available to MissionControl, making him waking up a very desirable thing to happen in the near future.

* The Riddler was smashed in the noggin with a mace during ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'', was in a coma for the "One Year Later" time skip, and woke up A) having forgot Franchise/{{Batman}}'s secret identity, and B) free of his compulsions for both riddling and crime. He's currently a successful private detective, so fair play Edward!

Sometimes, interrogating a comatose person for info will start to wake him up, or at least spike his EKG or EEG. He is then a ComatoseCanary. In SpeculativeFiction stories, heroes with {{Telepathy}} or telepahy-like technology may try an OrpheanRescue to wake them up. Other times, the coma is caused by an AstralProjection GoneHorriblyWrong.
