* The Music/JonathanCoulton song "The Future Soon" starts off as a teenager rejected by his crush and consoling himself that one day, he'll go from being a loser to an amazingly successful scientist. However, this involves him building a "warrior robot race," turning himself into a {{Cyborg}} and [[VillainLoveSong eventually kidnapping the girl in question]] (who now has bionic eyes, having lost the originals in the "Robot Wars" that he started). [[LyricalDissonance His tone remains optimistic, though]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' seems to almost specialise in these. For instance, Homer's fantasy about a theme park in his backyard named "Homerland USA" consists of a shabby old thing made largely out of mattresses. And his fantasy about having two wives -- which is mostly about getting twice as much housework done -- turns sour when out of nowhere he gets stung by a bee. And his fantasy about having a private plane ends with him finding that the cockpit is empty. Meanwhile Bart's dream of rock stardom includes becoming a drunken, drug-addled shambles who has alienated all his friends (but he ''still'' thinks it's awesome). The list goes on and on.
