* In the ''Hinageshi'' arc of the ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' manga, [[spoiler: ''the entire plot'' takes place in one of these, save for a little scene at the end.]] Tired and disappointed in herself because she failed a college prep test, a lonely Mion returns to Hinamizawa, her home. Hurt when her friends seem to have moved on without her (they don't make time to welcome her back, a ceremonial doll that represents her is gone from the group of dolls that symbolize them- ItMakesSenseInContext-) she gradually becomes more isolated and depressed, thinking that she doesn't have a place in Hinamizawa anymore. Suddenly, she wakes up in her own room, friends surrounding her. They explain that she's recovering from the effects of a bad fever, and tell her that they thought she was coming back a week later than she did, and that her doll was removed to be repainted. This makes Mion feel better, and she cries TearsOfJoy, and everyone is happy. [[spoiler: And ''then'' the manga switches to showing a comatose Mion, propped up in a hospital bed. For the first time since she fell into the coma, a doctor comments, Mion shows signs of life- she's crying, but still doesn't wake up. It's then that the reader learns this arc is actually a sequel to one in which the Hinamizawa Disaster occurred. This means that Mion was the only survivor of her village being ''annihilated,'' and, because she couldn't cope with the pain, stayed permanently in her happy place- her dreams.]]
** It actually gets even sadder when one realizes the metaphor: [[spoiler: Mion starts said arc bitterly disappointed at her failure, and wants more than anything her friends to tell her that they forgive said failure. Does this means she blames ''herself'' for the Disaster occurring?]]
* Manga/SchoolLive: [[GenkiGirl Yuki]] is under the delusion that the decrepit high school that she and her club live in is bustling with people and completely pristine in order to deal with the trauma of a ZombieApocalypse. One of her friends thinks that she just pretending for her friends' sake. The others are content to let it continue as it keeps her content and likewise takes their minds off things. There are hints that she in subconsciously aware that things aren't great.
