** And speaking of Pokémon (and moving on to [[Anime/{{Pokémon}} the anime]]), Ash's Rowlet from the ''[[Anime/PokemonSunAndMoon]]'' series is a great example of this. In any normal situation, and even during some battles, it's shown to be asleep. Hence why, in episode 12 of season 21, it's treated as a huge OOCIsSeriousBusiness moment when Professor Kukui is woken up by Rowlet, and is stunned to see that it's ''actually awake''- and it's early too:

* Peppermint Patty from ''ComicStrip/Peanuts''. She has the tendency to sleep through class. This was explained by the fact that her father works late, and Patty is too insecure to sleep until he returns home.

Worse, noticing a disturbance and actually waking up involve separate dice rolls, so it's entirely possible for a vampire to hear a threat but not be able to get themselves moving and deal with it.
