* This trope figures into ''Disney/TheFoxAndTheHound'', the scene where Todd is poking around Chief when Chief is asleep in his barrel-house.
* ''Franchise/ToyStory'':
** In [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory the original movie]], Woody and Buzz try to sneak past Sid's dog Scud. Then Woody's pull string is caught and his voice box wakes Scud up.
** In ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'', Woody and Bullseye try to get Woody's missing arm back from Al without waking him up. The trick is that Al has spilled a bowl of cheese puffs all over the floor. Woody nearly gets his arm back when [[spoiler:Stinky Pete]] turns on the TV and wakes Al up.

* ''EverQuest'' had The Sleeper--or rather, his guardians--as one of the major bosses of the Scars Of Velious expansion. Waking him up results in destroying his dungeon permanently, robbing the community of an important source of loot. The Sleeper himself comes back in a later expansion.

* One of the [[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt S Class]] threats in ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' is a supervillain named the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Sleeper ]]. As of the epilogue we know [[NothingIsScarier nothing about him]] except for that fact that him simply entering an AlternateReality is grounds for it to be written off as a lost cause and quarantined [[spoiler: and contacting him is considered more dangerous than recruiting an army of superpowered serial killers and an EldritchAbomination]]

* ''{{BIONICLE}}'': [[BigBad Makuta Teridax]] used a virus to weaken Mata Nui to the point of causing the latter to sleep and cause the Great Cataclysm. A very long time later, Mata Nui is awakened, only to also cause him to slowly dying. Again he is put back to sleep and revitalized until the state of matters improves for him to be reawakened.

* In Creator/LordDunsany's "Literature/TheGodsOfPegana", the gods created the world, but [[AC:Māna-Yood-Sushāī]] created the gods, and from this task he now rests, lulled by the endless drumming of Skarl the Drummer (who is technically not a god, despite having been created along with the gods). If Skarl were to cease drumming even for an instant, [[AC:Māna-Yood-Sushāī]] would wake up, and his awakening would destroy the world and the gods.
