* [[NobleDemon Evangeline]] of ''MahouSenseiNegima'' conveniently remembers her defeat at the hands of Nagi when Negi spies on her dream. Of course, later revelations about Evangeline's [[StoryBreakerPower real power level]] imply that the real battle probably wasn't ''quite'' as one-sided as the one in the dream.

* Agito of ''Franchise/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' receives these in ''[=StrikerS=]'' a few episodes after she was introduced, showing her life as a lab subject in an illegal research facility before she was rescued by Zest and Lutecia.
** Einhart Stratos also receives these in ''[=ViVid=]'', though in her case, it's drawn from the memories of the long dead [[WarriorPrince Ancient Belka King]] [[GeneticMemory whose blood]] [[{{Reincarnation}} had awakened in her]].

* Used in both versions of ''ChronoCrusade''. In the manga, Chrono has two nightmares that hint at his past without fully revealing it--first, a very symbolic dream that mixes a typical nightmare with bits of truth into it, and then a brief flash of a battle that later gets shown in a proper flashback. In the anime, Rosette has a dream about Joshua that starts off normal before turning into a nightmare that symbolically shows how he was kidnapped by the BigBad. This introduced Joshua before the flashback episode that explained Rosette's backstory.
