** The same is true of [[spoiler:the Gentleman]]. His "daughter" created him from idealized memories of her real father, with his KidSidekick being her idea of an ideal older brother. There's also Loony Leo, a cartoon lion brought to life by a MadScientist, whose existence was initially maintained by [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve people's belief in him]].

Characters in fiction are imaginary. Now extend the fact that characters that are imaginary within a work of fiction, and you get Dream People. They might be inhabitants of Dreamland or hallucinations, but that doesn't mean they don't have hopes and fears. If the real characters know about the imaginary nature of the Dream People, [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman they may or may not stop caring about their well-being.]]

[[OurGhostsAreDifferent Ghosts are a separate trope.]]

[[InsideAComputerSystem Virtual entities]] are covered by ProjectedMan and DigitalAvatar.

Compare ImaginaryFriend, IntangibleMan.

See also DreamLand, DreamApocalypse.

* In ''ComicBook/AstroCity,'' this is a key element of the origin of American Chibi, dreamed into existence by video game designer Marguerite Li. [[spoiler:Chibi is dreamed up by Marguerite after a group of eldritch abominations haunt her with dreams of monsters, and becomes manifest in the real world. This causes the walls between the dream-world and reality to weaken, allowing them to appear in the material world as the monsters from Marguerite's dreams.]]

* This trope is EVERYWHERE in "VideoGame/YumeNikki". The whole game takes place in the dreams of a young girl, so you should expect some interesting characters. Things like walking clocks, faceless technicolor people, walking whistles, deformed bird witches, pixel sculptures, mouths in wigs, ghosts, candle people, and even some unique characters in between, all haunt the regions of the game.
