-->'''Spider:''' [Mary] could have told the future what it'd be like to meet UsefulNotes/CheGuevara in that old Cuban schoolhouse. She could have told them about the last Queen and AlbertEinstein and a million other true stories besides. But the future didn't want to know. It honored the contracts with the past; revived them, gave them their money back, gave them the hostels. Put them away with a new, unspoken, contract: ''Don't bother us. We're not interested.''

* Mei in ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' was an Overwatch scientist who was studying climate change in Antarctica until a storm cut off the power at her station, damaging their communications systems and leaving them stranded. She and the other scientists cryogenically froze themselves in order to avoid dying of starvation, but they weren't found until 30 years later and she was the only survivor.

* Samus' gunship in ''[[VideoGame/MetroidPrimeTrilogy Metroid Prime 3: Corruption]]'' includes a cryostasis pod built into the pilot's chair, presumably because of space restrictions on the amount of oxygen, food, water, etc. the ship can carry. The Federation also uses cold stasis to transport nasties like Metroids, Phazon and the like, [[SealedEvilInACan with predictable results.]]

* ''VideoGame/MetroidPrimeTrilogy''
** U-Mos is the only living Luminoth that Samus encounters on Aether, because the ones who did not die in war were sealed into stasis, either to wait until the Ing were annihilated or [[ApocalypseHow to die when the last of Aether's planetary energy was lost]]. [[spoiler:They all emerge from stasis after Dark Aether is destroyed, bowing to Samus for saving their world.]]

* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'':
** [[spoiler:The entire human race is this, having been frozen ever since they boarded the White Whale to escape Earth's destruction. Their bodies are waiting in the Lifehold Core, controlling artificial bodies called mimeosomes from a distance. This is why retrieving the Lifehold Core before the Ganglion is so imperative: if the Ganglion finds and destroys the Core first, the human race will die out.]]
** [[spoiler: It's eventually mostly subverted: this was the story the people in New Los Angeles were ''led'' to believe. In truth, the humans' consciousnesses and memories were [[BrainUploading uploaded to a huge database inside the Core]]. The humans' original bodies were destroyed alongside Earth, and the Core only houses the aforementioned database, as well as protoplasm and DNA banks to recreate new flesh-and-blood bodies for the humans to go back to after Mira is made safe. Only ''one'' body was actually frozen like they told the people in New LA: Elma's real body.]]

* In Arthur C. Clarke's ''RendezvousWithRama'', the titular vessel is assumed by some characters to be a sleeper ship, though later novels reveal it to be something entirely different.
* In ''3001: The Final Odyssey,'' the last sequel to Clarke's ''[[TheSpaceOdysseySeries 2001]]'', an astronaut who seemed to have been killed by HAL in the original novel is found and revived after floating frozen in space in a damaged suit for a thousand years. This leads to a FishOutOfTemporalWater plot for the first part of the book.

* The Filksong [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=At57p4N6bXE Cold Dreams]] By Julia Ecklar is about a HumanPopsicle that will never awake, because the ship's drive system failed so it will never reach its destination.

* Nina and Anna Williams from the ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' series were frozen for the twenty years between Tekken 2 and Tekken 3. Nina's resulting amnesia has since been a consistent part of her character, but neither woman is portrayed as ever having any trouble adjusting to having missed the past twenty years. Indeed, the real point was presumably to preserve these two characters in their early twenties while introducing adult children of characters from the previous games. Not to mention this would keep them young and sexy. There are no female fighters on any roster that are over the age of 25 physically. Yet we have an old man who is over 100 and still fighting.

* Being a corpsicle it's an important plot device in ''Literature/TheWorldAtTheEndOfTime'', for good or bad, and thanks to it along with TimeDilation the two main human protagonists become as old as the Universe at the end of the book.

* In ''Literature/WingsOfFire'', [[spoiler:Queen Diamond]] sentences [[spoiler:Foeslayer]] to a particularly cruel version of this; she is encased in ice whenever [[spoiler:Diamond]] kills her, and then can be revived by typing her with her spear so she can kill her over and over again. It gets to the point where [[spoiler: Foeslayer, after 2000 years]], says that she'd rather just be killed because she isn't completely frozen in time and is still starving, making it more miserable for her to be alive.

** Later on, in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', Iron Man refers to him as a "Capsicle". A brief flashback sequence also shows a clearly-frozen Cap being examined by scientists. Realistically, the scientists are '''very shocked''' when they discover he's still alive.
