* The ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' one issue story "The Daydreamers" had four members of the main cast daydreaming themselves as Dream Sues. First, Felicia dreamed about being a super-spy as the Black Cat with Spidey (who was Creator/CarryGrant under his mask). Then J. Jonah Jameson dreams of beating up Spidey and humiliating him in public, the city regarding Jonah a hero. Then Mary Jane dreams of being an A-List supermodel and movie star, her biography being portrayed on Broadway (eventually snapping back to reality when her sister appears in it, asking for help). Spidey himself imagines himself defeating a whole army of super-villains in his heroic identity and developing a miracle cure for every illness in the world as Peter, with both the Avengers and Fantastic Four ''begging'' for him to join him, although the dream turns sour when he's reminded of his past. (The story ends on a somewhat high note when he wakes up and helps a kid who admires him by scaring away some bullies.)

* Tamaki from {{Ouran High School Host Club}} views himself as the one man who can charm anyone. This sorta works on half of the student body, since their rich stereotypes, but doesn't work on the normal (or "poor"). He often has fantasies with himself charming Haruhi and winning her love. This dream is unique as it not only shows Tamaki as a DreamSue, but Haruhi as an AsianAirhead, laughing "Tee hee" as she wears a dress (despite having to pose as a boy), letting Tamaki twirl her around, stopping only to eat fatty tuna. The other members have given this fake Haruhi the nickname of "Dream-Haruhi".

* ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiDreamTeam'' actually uses this as a gameplay mechanic. The plot involves Mario jumping into Luigi's dreams, where Luigi is capable of numerous super-useful abilities such as [[MesACrowd multiplying himself many times over]] for both exploration and combat and [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever turning himself into a giant]] in order to take on giant bosses. The one giant boss who gives him the biggest run for his money is [[spoiler:Bowser, who basically dreams ''himself'' into a DreamSue as well.]]

If there's no dream, it's not an example.
* Early on in {{Manga/Naruto}}, the titular character imagined himself as a smug MartyStu who always has to bail Sasuke out of trouble and save the day while winning Sakura's love. Any fan of the show probably found that to be incredibly laughable. * Although not onscreen, Black Star from {{Manga/Soul Eater}} probably does this all the time, since he views himself as a god who will surpass God himself. In reality, he's actually not bad, and these very delusions are precisely what drives him to be great at everything he does.

* Usopp in ''Manga/OnePiece'' sees his alter-ego Sogeking as the courageous warrior and hero he couldn't be. In Ussop's mind, Sogeking even has his own choreographed opening theme song... but to anyone else in reality, Usopp is just [[ImagineSpot spacing out]] while singing badly.

Sp.
* In the ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' episode "[[Recap/SupernaturalS02E15TallTales Tall Tales]]" (which is TheRashomon), Dean retells an evening in a bar to Bobby as if he is a romantic Dream Sue, with hints of being a perfect [[TheHunter hunter]] as well. The entire setting is glamorized, and a girl just completely swoons over him and showers him with praise, while he insists that he has to do his "duty" of interviewing her because lifes are at stake. Sam by contrast is turned into a whiny jerk who simply wants to interrupt Dean and his lover, eventually just descending into whining "BlahBlahBlah".

* In one ''Webcomic/{{Nodwick}}'' story, we see the henchman protagonist dreaming like this ''and'' treating Artax the same way Artax treats ''him'' in reality (like a pack mule). When he wakes up it's hinted he has dreams like this a lot.
