* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' where Lincoln wonders [[AlternateReality what his life would be like]] [[Rule63 if he had ten brothers instead of ten sisters]] [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor and later gets sick of it after seeing what his life would be like]], he later ends up in dimension where, while more or less exactly the same as his original world in many ways, he's now the middle and ''[[AlternateSelf only]]'' '''''[[GenderBender daughter]]''''' of the eleven Loud children. [[AllJustADream Oh, and then it turns that all the events of the episode were just some really weird dream that Lincoln was having.]]

-->'''Hank Hill:''' Damn it! I always wake up before I find out if they can understand the baby.* Happened to Mrs. Puff in the ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' episode "Doing Time". Most of the episode had her in prison after [=SpongeBob=] drove a car off an "unfinished bridge" and down into a juice truck. Near the end of the episode she woke up and was back in the car, falling and crashing again. This time [=SpongeBob=] was arrested. She looked down to see she was in a prison outfit and woke up again, with one of the prisoners in the car instead. She woke up once again, giving up, "Oh, forget it."

* Subverted in ''Literature/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe''. The Pevensies are chasing the White Stag at the end of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. When they see the Lamp Post, it seems vaguely familiar- as if it were from "a dream within a dream". But it turns out that the Lamp Post was real, and so was the "Spare Oom", and now they were heading back to England- to the exact same moment in time they departed it.
* Played straight in ''Literature/TheVoyageOfTheDawnTreader''. Lucy is dreaming that she gets up from bed, looks at the mirror, and has transformed into Susan. She wakes up, looks at the mirror, and Aslan talks to her. Then she wakes up again- and is in the real world.

* ''UruseiYatsura'': An episode centering around Mrs. Moroboshi involved her continually waking up, discovering that everything up until that moment had been a dream. There is even a suggestion that the events of the series are a dream, and the book The War of The Worlds is the actual reality. (Though she does wake up in another reality where both are true) The episode ends with the characters ringed around Mrs. Moroboshi and singing a children's song which is very chilling when you consider it's lyrics ("Oh little bird, when will you escape the bird-cage?")
