In one of his fantasy sequences, Joe's father reminds him to use the morse code he learned in his youth to communicate with the outside world.

* VideoGame/BioshockInfinite: During the Burial at Sea DLC, Elizabeth speaks to Booker, who should be dead at this point in the story. At first, it's implied he could be a ghost, considering the precedent for one previously. However, eventually Booker himself reveals that he's just a hallucination Elizabeth uses as mental support.

* Cloud's visions in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' - variously shown as a voice in his head, a spectral version of himself or a child version of himself - spends a lot of time giving him hints. It reminds him of who Reno is even though he's forgotten, admonishes him if he decides to get sidetracked from his goals to go and mess about with prostitutes, and drops heavy hints about Tifa's [[CanNotSpitItOut evasiveness]] and where the cracks in his [[FakeMemories story]] lie. In one scene, when Cloud is possessed and trying to give Sephiroth the Black Materia, the player briefly controls one of the hallucinations running around trying to stop Cloud, but it doesn't work.
