* ''Franchise/DragonAge'' has this covered in the form of the Fade, the place where the spirits of every species except dwarves go when asleep. (Dwarves live near [[AppliedPhlebotinum lyrium]], which has effects on magical abilities and so on. Unruly or dangerous mages are forcibly branded with lyrium, turning them into the Tranquil, which is essentially a magical lobotomy.) [[AlienGeometries It's very...odd.]] Mages are the only people who can consciously navigate it without having to check on whether they're dreaming or not, though this puts them in danger of being possessed by the many demons that wander the Fade.

* The ''Franchise/DragonAge'' has series gradually subverts this covered trope in the form of the Fade, the place a SpiritWorld where disembodied spirits reside and where the spirits consciousness of every species except dwarves go when asleep. (Dwarves live near [[AppliedPhlebotinum lyrium]], which has effects on magical abilities and so on. Unruly or dangerous mages are forcibly branded with lyrium, turning them into the Tranquil, which is essentially a magical lobotomy.) [[AlienGeometries It's very...odd.]] Mages are the only people who can consciously navigate it without having to check on whether they're dreaming or not, though this puts them in danger of being possessed by the many demons that wander the Fade. The subversion sets in as soon as ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOriginsAwakening'', which begins dismantling the laws of the setting by having a dwarf party member potentially joining the PC on a dream trip to the Fade (which he also acknowledges as normally impossible). By the time of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', we have [[spoiler:the Inquisitor entering and leaving the Fade ''in the flesh'' twice (once with an entire party in tow, potentially including a dwarf again)]], suggesting that the Fade is not as dreamlike as it seems, and then the ''Trespasser'' DLC drops the final bomb by revealing that [[spoiler:the Fade is actually a former part of Thedas (the "waking world"), which was cut off from it thousands of years ago by a mage with near-divine powers to seal away the old Elven gods, along with most of the magic and the miracles of the old world]].



* ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'' has the real...ish world where Yharnam is located and the Hunter's Dream, a safe PocketDimension created from the dreams of [[spoiler:the Moon Presence, an EldritchAbomination exterminating its fellow horrors and their spawn by means of its pet human Hunters]]. Hunters are humans injected with Old Blood, giving them, among other things, an ability to "awaken" from Yharnam to the Hunter's Dream and back. Later in the game, you also visit another dream world, the Nightmare of Mensis, as well as the Hunter*s Nightmare in the DLC, suggesting that there are innumerable worlds created from the dreams of powerful beings, or even that Yharnam itself is just such a dream.

* In ''VideoGame/DreamfallTheLongestJourney'', powerful Dreamers can create entire worlds lodged between Stark and Arcadia, wherein they are the {{Domain Holder}}s, such as Faith's Winter. ''VideoGame/DreamfallChapters'' then reveals that the entire universe of ''VideoGame/TheLongestJourney'' is a dream of the primordial being known as Lux the First Dreamer, [[spoiler:whose power Zoë, another powerful Dreamer, briefly borrows during the finale of ''Chapters'' to deal with the Prophet's conspiracy]].

* ''AnimeANdManga/OnegaiMyMelody'' gives us Mari Land, a bright, happy dimension formed by the dreams of all humans on Earth, populated [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter anthropomorphic stuffed animals]] and fields of colorful flowers implied to represent said dreams. All nightmares are banished to a far-off part of Mari Land to prevent the [[VileVillainSaccharineShow Spirit of the Dark Power]] from getting even stronger than he already is, as we learn in the 2nd series ''Kuru Kuru Shuffle!''.

** Sub-Con in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2'', though the plot leaves it ambiguous whether it was an actual place accessed by dream or if it was AllJustADream in the more mundane sense.
** The Dream World of ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiDreamTeam'' is more explicitly an actual place, accessed through Luigi falling asleep on magic pillows that are the petrified bodies of the native Pi'llos. While the [[DualWorldGameplay exact geography of the Dream World section visited depends on where Luigi falls asleep]], it's still depicted as existing independently of the green guy's mind.

* Creator/HPLovecraft did a number of stories set in a fairly surreal and oddly-light-on-the-horror-he's-known-for [=Dreamlands=]. "The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath" includes Nyarlathotep, an enigmatic and dangerous being found in his other work, one of the major links between this Dream Cycle and the Cthulhu Mythos.

A MagicalLand or AnotherDimension comprising the collective dreams of humanity. Can be a collective dream, or the dream of a [[JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind specific person]]. Generally surreal, nonsensical, and psychologically symbolic. Alternatively, just [[SugarBowl adorable]] randomness. Usually divided into two halves or factions — [[BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind nightmares]] and [[HappyPlace good dreams.]]

** fan-supplement ''TabletopGame/PrincessTheHopeful'' has a dimension named like this literally named the Dreamlands. This one, however, isn't a natural place, but an artificial creation from the [[BigBad Darkness]]' minions, and was used centuries ago as a LotusEaterMachine to [[SealedGoodInACan trap the majority of the titular Princesses' souls]], thus preventing them from [[BornAgainImmortality reincarnating]]. Eventually the place evolved into its own things, and the [[BigGood Radiant Queens]] managed to overthrow its guardians, claiming the Dreamlands as their domain.

** ''TabletopGame/BeastThePrimordial'' reveals the existence of another aspect of the Astral Dreams in-between the Tenemos and the Anima Mundi, known as the Primordial Dream, which is home to humanity's collective fears. The titular Beasts are people whose soul has been replaced with living Nightmares native of the Primordial Dream, known as Horrors. Each Horror has its own [[EldritchLocation Lair]] inside this realm, which Beasts can travel to by opening Primordial Pathways.

Nowadays, Princesses can enter the Dreamlands during their sleep and travel safely inside it (with the same YearInsideHourOutside rules than the Astral Realm), but sticking there for too long might result in the remains of the Lotus Eater Machine taking effect and gradually altering their memories.
