* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny'', [[TheHero Stahn Aileron]] is a notoriously heavy sleeper, to the point his sister Lilith developed a ''special attack'' just to wake him up. After he married Rutee, they had a son named Kyle (protagonist of the second game) who inherited this from his father. Rutee obtained her sister-in-law's technique for "waking up the boys": making a racket with pots and pans... right next to their heads.

* In ''Literature/PeterPan'', after Wendy tells Peter about how her brother, John, despises girls, Peter goes over and kicks a sleeping John out of his blanket and then out of bed. She initially chastises Peter over it, but then she looks over and notices that John's still asleep.

* Sakura Kinomoto from ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' doesn't start as one, but begins to sleep more and fall asleep everywhere [[spoiler: as she starts transforming the Clow Cards into Sakura Cards, which drains her of energy a L O T.]] Similarly, [[spoiler: Yukito/Yue]] takes his up as [[spoiler: his limited life energy starts running out; it's only fixed when Touya gives him his own psychic energy so he won't fade away (And then ''he'' starts sleeping in more...).]]

* ''[[Anime/NegimaSecondSeason Negima!?]]'' have this as a trait to Asuna Kagurazaka. In the series, she actually wakes up early every day for newspaper delivery, making up on weekends (thus, she's more of NotAMorningPerson). [[spoiler: Due to the events in the Magic World in [[Manga/MahouSenseiNegima the original manga]], her fate is to sleep for a century in the Gravekeeper's Palace. [[TearJerker Yeah.]] True to her Heavy Sleeper tendencies, she ends up oversleeping by about 30 years.]]

* [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in ''[[Literature/WhoCensoredRogerRabbit Who Plugged Roger Rabbit?]]''. Eddie tussles with a heavy in an art museum, while a lazy security guard snoozes on a nearby fold-out chair, not budging an inch when the two combatants slam each other into the well mere feet from him. [[spoiler: turns out the security guard was faking it, and in fact becomes a key witness that helps Eddie both justify himself to the police and eventually crack the case.]]

* ''Series/IDreamOfJeannie'': In "Meet My Master's Mother", furious with Major Nelson's visiting mother, Jeannie seeks to disrupt her sleep by playing drums, trumpets, and even firing a cannon. Mrs. Nelson doesn't so much as bat an eye . . . until Major Nelson leaves his room, calling for her asking if she heard anything. Jeannie is then punished with LaserGuidedKarma for her mean-spirited pranks, when Mrs. Nelson innocently uses Jeannie's bottle (with Jeannie in it) to mix up a batch of shampoo! [[spoiler: In the end, Jeannie tries a much more successful "if you can't beat them, join them" approach]]

** J.D being a sound sleeper is the basis of at least one joke. When Dr Cox and the Janitor are drinking and talking about how much he annoys them, the Janitor reveals that he regularly sneaks into JD's room while he's asleep and moves things around to mess with him. [[spoiler: They move his bed to the hospital parking lot, where he's woken up in the morning by ambulance sirens.]]

* Laharl from ''VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness'' is implied to be a heavy sleeper. When he wakes up from his two year "nap" at the beginning of the game (after Etna tries bludgeoning him with a variety of weapons), he doesn't seem too fazed about it, and one of his nameless henchmen mention that it's pretty typical for him. Furthermore, he comments that he was only expecting to be asleep for ''ten days''. [[spoiler: But it turns out that the reason he slept for two years was he was poisoned.]]

* Nayuki in ''VisualNovel/{{Kanon}}''. The VisualNovel explains the psychological reasons behind her behavior: [[spoiler: her unhappy memories of Yuuichi rejecting her confession of love to him, all those years ago]]. This leads to some amusing [[NonSequiturThud non-thudding non-sequiturs]] delivered in her barely-ambulatory state.

* Carlos from ''Anime/GunXSword'' is an old man who is nearly always asleep - even at the controls of his part of the CombiningMecha. He wakes up exactly twice: the first time is at the end of the episode introducing the El Dorado V, and the second time [[spoiler:is in Episode 25, when he wakes up to give a RousingSpeech to his discouraged allies. He stays awake for the final episode.]]
** [[spoiler:He even takes the time to ''introduce himself to the main character'' during the final episode. The guy his group has been traveling with for '''half the series'''.]]

* Snoozer in ''Anime/{{Hamtaro}}'', who takes this to extremes in that every time we see him, he's either asleep or talking in his sleep.
** However, he finally woke up for a short time in one episode to cheer up Bijou, who was crying.

* Rock Lee from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' is known for sleepwalking for days, keeping a fighting spirit when unconscious as a result of [[TrainingFromHell insane training of reflexes]], as well as being part-time asleep while accidentally drunk-fighting [[ConfusionFu (as either a ruse or really falling asleep in them middle of a fight and waking from incredible reflexes repeatedly, not sure which)]].

* Pop Harukaze from ''Anime/OjamajoDoremi''. One of the principal reasons why she [[CantCatchUp couldn't catch up]] with the other Ojamajos despite her natural witchcraft talents was because the apprentice tests were scheduled during the night, but Pop simply could NOT stay awake no matter how many precautions she took and how many times Doremi and the others tried to wake her up. As a result, she doesn't take her first test until a few episodes into ''Sharp''.
** This is justified since she is [[WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld a preschool kid]]. And in another episode, she actually collapsed and fell asleep.
* Monkey D. Luffy in ''Manga/OnePiece''. In one instance, his crew member Roronoa Zoro bounced off his belly without rousing him. After a fight he will either eat or sleep continuously, and after Ennies lobby somehow taught himself to eat while sleeping to cope.

* In ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'', Yellow is sometimes seen yawning and dozing off. True, overusing her powers '''will''' force her to fall asleep, but you have to wonder how the fook she managed to start napping after she got grabbed and lifted into the air by several Lickitung when she wasn't using said powers the moment before.
** Bayleef's flowery scent lulled her into sleep, and the expression on Bayleef's face shows how random it was. However, she woke up pretty fast that time. Most other times, it's less "asleep" than it is "unconscious".

** Snorlax is notorious for doing two things: sleeping for months at a stretch and [[BigEater devouring entire islands worth of food when it's awake]]. The first game has a BrokenBridge of one falling asleep on a road and blocking all traffic from either direction because nobody can get it to move.

** Komala from ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' does Snorlax one better; it's said to spend ''its whole life'' asleep. Its ability, Comatose, reflects this; it's treated as having the StandardStatusEffect Sleep for the purpose of certain moves (such as Wake-Up Slap, which does double damage to sleeping Pokémon), but it can still attack in battle.

* In ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story]]'', Luigi sleeps through a meeting ''and'' an attack from Bowser. He only wakes up when Bowser inhales him after breaking into Peach's castle for a second time. (Though given that he was scratching and moving around, it's likely he was only pretending to be asleep to avoid having to fight Bowser).

Yes, plural; just one isn't enough to get him out of bed (though his assistant Whis [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment threatening to]] [[DreadfulMusician sing karaoke]] does the job just as well).

* In ''YggdraUnison'', after [[spoiler:apparently being killed in the battle for Karona and then reincarnating as usual]], Nessiah sleeps through ''the entire war he wanted to take advantage of'' unless you find his [[SecurityBlanket lost spellbook]], upon which he will immediately wake up (and be [[NotAMorningPerson rather disgruntled about it]]). Seeing as finding the Revelation can be a massive GuideDangIt, [[AntiFrustrationFeatures the game developers are kind enough]] to make Nessiah ''stay'' awake for all subsequent playthroughs once you've found him.
