* 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.

to:

** ''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.

* ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'' contains the Astral Realms, which have three distinct levels. The Oneiros is each individual's personal MentalWorld. The Tenemos is the DreamWorld of humanity, containing the sum total of all human knowledge, belief, and experience, albeit shrouded in metaphor, symbolism and subjectivity. Each concept has its own realm, and they are either ruled over by gods (all gods ever beleived in exist in the Tenemos) or [[AnthropomorphicPersonification archetypes]]. Travel is made by locating aspects in one realm and moving to another connected to it by word association. It is possible for the realms of ideologies to enforce belief in their ideology upon visitors. Even deeper is the Anima Mundi (also called the Dreamtime), which is essentially the DreamWorld of the Earth itself. Its entirely inhuman perspective can wash away any unprotected human mind that tries to pass through it. It contains the Earth's perspective on humanity (represented as a vast swath of destruction), nature (which is filled with animal and elemental archetypes; notably, the animal archetypes are devoid of AnimalMotifs) and the wider universe (represented as an incomprehensibly large void filled with bizarre objects and beings). All Astral Realms operate on [[YearInsideHourOutside subjective time]]. The length of real time one spends in the Astral Realms largely depends on the degree to which you interact with them (so, for example, if you merely pass through a desert, it might ''feel'' like hours, but in real time, it will take about as long as it takes to ''say'' "I pass through the desert").

* In Creator/JulieKagawa's ''Literature/{{The Iron K|ing}}night'', the River of Dreams. It has interesting flotsum and jetsum, and Puck, fishing in it, catches a yellow boot, a turtle that asks for a pocket watch, a catfish that plead IHaveAFamily, and an annoyed dragon. Given, however, that Nevernever is shaped by human thoughts, it's less of a jolt for them.

* In ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'', Kagetsu Tohya. The story is only focused around Shiki and only appears to encompass the town he lives in, plus the next one over. [[spoiler:However, it's revealed that actually, all the people he meets are indeed 'real' in a sense. They can give him information he needs to figure out what's going on and will also realize the oddness of the repeating days in their own ways.]] The dream he's in also mixes all the different Tsukihime continuities heavily, though Shiki does not notice.
