* ''ComicBook/TheMaxx'' was based on this trope, with half of the action taking place in the Outback, a prehistoric dream world created by [[spoiler:Julie as an escape from a near-fatal sexual assault]].
** Later in the series it is revealed other people also have their Outbacks, including [[spoiler:Sarah, and maybe Dave/the Maxx himself]].

Sometimes the outside world can be a cold, cruel place, full of mean, hurtful people and scads of [[ChewToy author-induced pain]]. That's why the best solution to a world bent on making you suffer can be to just curl up into a TroubledFetalPosition, suck your thumb, and go to a Happy Place inside your head. The Happy Place is rarely uninhabited though; it may be populated by [[{{fanservice}} scantily clad harem girls/boys]], {{Spirit Advisor}}s, an [[GhostInTheMachine inner child or three]], or if one is particularly unlucky they'll be roommates (headmates?) with a SplitPersonality, SuperpoweredEvilSide or EnemyWithin, the troublesome roomies usually want to [[BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind pick a fight.]]

* The entire plot of [[{{Tsukihime}} Kagetsu Tohya]] is based on how Shiki comes to realize that he's trapped in Len's version of a LotusEaterMachine, which is really more of what he would consider this trope. All she really wants is a normal, happy every day life. While inside, he's always fairly happy while staying in the bounds of Len's script. He doesn't have to fight vampires, he can be with all his friends and love interests, it's always exciting and hey, maybe there's a festival going on! But that's Len's happy place, and she's a dream familiar that dragged him with her while thinking she was helping him after Arcueid knocked him out on accident.

* A ''Webcomic/MegaTokyo'' guest comic done by the guys at ''Webcomic/MacHall'' showed Piro at a convention attempting to commit seppuku. As they're trying to wrestle the blade out of his hands, someone yells out, "Go to your happy place, Piro! Sad girl in snow!"

* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's happy place is being with Catherine Zeta Jones and she wearing only a hat, tie, glasses and a long sweater.

* Taken rather literally in Literature/TheTripods. Human servants who can no longer serve The Masters go to The Place Of Happy Release (aka instant death from some kind of vapor ray).



* Summer cottages, resorts and dachas. Also a boat or yacht can act as a mobile HappyPlace.

* Creator/ShirleyJackson had Merricat Blackwood in ''We Have Always Lived In The Castle'' doing the week's shopping, treated like a pariah by the villagers, including kids throwing rocks at her; she shuts them out and begins to imagine she's living in a little blue house on the moon. She elaborates on this pleasant life all through the book, especially whenever she is anxious or afraid.
