** They did it again the the Comic "Penguin Dreams", which details a successful trick where Penguin succeeds in murdering Batman, then [[CementShoes kicks a bound and gagged Bruce Wayne off his yacht]]. To maintain the illusion, the title wasn't shown until the last page, when it was revealed to be Penguin looking out the window daydreaming.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}'', as Carl and Russell float over a city, Carl attempts to lower Russell to the ground (and thereby not have to put up with him) on a bedsheet harness, only for the 'rope' to be too short, and Russell falls screaming. Switch back to Carl, still standing behind Russell inside the house, and he mutters "Well, that won't work."
* Michael's paranoia-filled nightmare in ''WesternAnimation/{{Anomalisa}}'' about meeting the hotel manager plays out as a real event until Lisa snaps Michael out of his sleep.
* In ''Disney/{{Moana}}'', following a lesson on ocean navigation from Maui, Moana is surprised to find that they've arrived back at Motunui... which is being engulfed by the darkness. As her parents are swallowed up before her eyes, she awakes [[CatapultNightmare with a start]] to find that they're still in the middle of the ocean.

* Possibly best known from the ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' episode "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" (adapted from the short story of the same name by Creator/AmbroseBierce), in which a Civil War prisoner being hanged from the eponymous bridge manages a miraculous escape, makes his way across miles of hostile countryside to his home, stumbles inside to the welcoming arms of his loving wife... and finishes his drop on the end of the rope and dies.

** Another episode had Stan finding out his boss and daughter are sleeping together. He then suddenly shots his boss, chloroforms Hailey but notices the mailman and chases him down before killing him. He then see a blind man who quickly points out he blind and didn't see anything getting Stan to back off. We then suddenly cut back to the point before, the whole sequence being a daydream...though Stan realizes [[FridgeLogic the bystander in his daydream was lying about being "blind"]].

* After Alistair Smythe make a crack that he's Spider-Man in ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'', Max Dillon, obsessed with Spider-Man ever since the wall-crawler saved him, has a daydream where he slams Smythe against a wall, but in reality, he does nothing. A deleted scene has him similarly having a daydream about yelling at [[AbusiveParents his asshat of a mother]] after he mocks his singing [[KickTheDog hen he hummed "Happy Birthday" on his own birthday]].

* It's been mentioned elsewhere, but in ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited,'' B-villain Milo's CorruptCorporateExecutive bosses screw him over once too often, so in a rage, he pulls out a massive gun and terminates them one after another until all are dead... and then we [[IndulgentFantasySegue cut back to reality]].

* The first ''VideoGame/FreddiFish'' game has this in the form of an infamous DummiedOut [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iwh9iUtX4Fc cutscene]]. (Which can be produced in-game by adding the value "[=EddieEatsLuther=]=1" in the game's ini file.) At one point in the game, Freddi and her friend Luther meet an irritated eel named Eddie, who threatens to eat the two fish if they don't go away. If the value is set in the ini file, clicking Luther will result in Freddi suddenly ''tossing Luther to Eddie'', who gleefully gobbles the poor fish up (and in a way that's fairly graphic for a kid's game no less) and swims off as Freddi smirks at the camera. After this happens, the scene immediately cuts back to before (with Freddi and the still alive-and-well Luther in front of the Eddie) and this exchange occurs:
---> '''Luther''': Whatcha thinking about, Freddi?\\
'''Freddi''': Oh, nothing, Luther...



* Midway through the ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' episode "Mama's Girl", Spinelli has become the laughingstock of the school after accidentally calling the kids' teacher Ms. Grotke "mama" and announces that she is going to run away from school/home. When T.J. asks her where she could go, Spinelli says "somewhere far far away where no one will ever call [her] a 'mama's girl' again." We then cut to Spinelli alone in a tower somewhere in the Alaskan tundra with no one for miles. Just as she's getting used to her new surroundings a voice suddenly calls: "Is mama's little girl ready for school?" Cut to Spinelli [[AllJustADream waking up in bed]] to the sound of her mother telling to get up.
