* Happens almost once a chapter in ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians''-- Percy eavesdrops on villains' conversations pretty much every time he dreams (which is a lot), although the aversion of AsYouKnow means the information he gathers is rather cryptic. Played with in the third book, when [[spoiler: one villain reveals she let Percy listen in on the conversation specifically to kill his morale.]]
** This occurs just as much in ''Creator/RickRiordan''s other works. It's a well recognised phenomenon amongst [[Literature/MagnusChase Demi]][[Literature/HeroesOfOlympus Gods]] and [[Literature/TheKaneChronicles Magicians]].

* ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' series, in an indirect way. The dream world has none of the people that the physical world does, but inanimate objects are still there so some of the Aes Sedai would read reports from their enemy's desks, though the papers would disappear if it was moved in the real world while they were reading them.
* In ''Literature/TheBlackCompany'', one character gets temporarily dislodged from his body (the enemy wizard was being an asshole) and upon returning discovers, that he can do astral travel whenever asleep. This becomes a major plot point.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'', most frequently in [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix the fifth book]]. Harry's connection to Lord Voldemort allows him to "see" what the Dark Lord is up to, but it sometimes goes both ways. It is twisted when [[spoiler:Voldemort plants a false dream to trick Harry into rushing into battle at the Department of Mysteries]].

DreamSpying occurs when a character dreams of something that is currently happening somewhere else. For example, the hero passes out and dreams they're in the war room of an enemy and getting details on their plot.

* In AndreNorton's ''Literature/IceCrown'', Roane dreams of what is happening in court. Later, Nelis can confirm it because she can describe court mourning, which the people had been wearing, but she had never seen outside the dream.
