* Mack Bolan "Literature/TheExecutioner" discusses the trope with Jack Grimaldi as he waits for dawn to infiltrate a bad guy base, claiming that its effectiveness is psychological, with people instinctively relaxing as they're no longer in danger from night predators.

* In ''OnePiece'' the Black Cat Pirates do this. They spend the night sailing from one coast on the island to another and then go ashore exactly at sunrise. While the exact dawn attack strategy doesn't help them (because they blurted it out to Luffy and Usopp who they thought were too weak to fight them), they initially gain an advantage because they go ashore at another coast than our heroes expected them to.

* In ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', the Rohirrim like to do this when they're playing TheCavalry. Both Erkenbrand's charge to break the siege on Helm's Deep and Théoden's attack at the Battle of Pelennor Fields happen at dawn.

* In ''MaskedRider,'' Dregon declares "We shall attack at dawn!" The MonsterOfTheWeek of the two-part premiere (Monster of the Fortnight?) appears late at night as a small sphere, assembles a freaky cyborg insect body from random junk in an awesome scene, and calmly stands in that spot to await daylight. Then, he strolls through town causing StuffBlowingUp with his customary TranquilFury. (''Don't'' expect the show to be this cool very often, alas.)
* In ''Series/{{Merlin}}'', Morgana takes over Camelot and sends Arthur and his allies running for their lives. Arthur gathers together his forces, prepares them throughout the night, and then takes back the city at dawn.
