** In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/DragonsRidersOfBerk'' a very dangerous dragon know as the Skyrim is unfrozen. More a case of Dragon Popsicle though. The in-universe explanation for the dragon's surviving is that it can produce its own internal body heat.
** PlayedStraight in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfTheBoneknapperDragon'' short, or that's what Gobbler wants us to believe, as he tells the story of how he faces the eponymous Boneknapper Dragon after finding a group of frozen (and still alive) vikings. Although this is more likely a case of UnreliableNarrator as the franchise is somewhat biologically realistic (for a cartoon) and Gobbler is clearly TheMunchausen.

* The plot of ''Anime/SpacePatrolLuluco'' is kicked off when Luluco's father accidentally bites a cryogenic stasis pill, forcing her to join the Space Patrol to pay for his defrosting. [[spoiler:It later turns out that the pill was placed in his food by a member of Lalaco's SpacePirate crew to keep him from interfering with [[MonumentalTheft her latest heist]].]]

This is not to be [[IThoughtItMeant confused]] with [[Film/TheWarriors Ajax's]] [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice plans]] for you with a bat. Or [[Film/TheFifthElement meat popsicles]]. Often overlaps with Really700YearsOld, but the people from this trope rarely experience the time in-between freezing and thawing.

* Nancy Etchemendy's collection of short stories, titled ''Cat in Glass'', includes ''Shore Leave Blacks'', the tale of a woman who left her family to join a crew that makes long space voyages to and from Earth. The resulting time dilation leaves her [[CompetenceZone completely out of synch with the culture on Earth]] -- a woman physically and mentally in her thirties who culturally is in her nineties. As she gets laughed at and stared at and even shunned for not knowing basic technologies, you get a good idea of why these spacefarers don't like shore leave. But she's steeled herself to get through the pain in order to attend a family reunion and possibly meet her son, who is likely in his seventies. Or possibly dead. And even if he's alive, he's not likely to appreciate the factors that led her to abandon him and head for the stars. She finally makes it to her old hometown, in the middle of nowhere, only to discover that [[spoiler:her son is still relative to her in age, having joined a similar space program as soon as he was old enough -- and so he ''completely'' understands what she's been going through.]]

* ''Series/{{Wiseguy}}''. Mark Volchek runs the town of Lynchboro, Seattle as a personal fiefdom. The OCB is sent in to investigate him, only to find that his big plan is merely to build a cyrogenic storage hospital for the entire town in order to sate his own phobia of death.

** ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' takes this trope to more disturbing heights. When people first meet Lusamine, she talks about how she wants to protect Pokemon "worthy of her love"; clearly, nobody thought she meant [[spoiler:cryogenically preserving them in a bunker in the underbelly of Aether Paradise, which you see when you come to rescue Lillie later on in the story. It's the sheer ''volume'' of cryo cells in the bunker that make this whole thing disturbing, especially when you learn that she had three Type: Null imprisoned in this fashion]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'': Mothership Zeta has plenty of those, an original Samurai, a cowboy, 20th century army medic & more -- all frozen, and some don't defrost that well. RIP, Mr. Astronaut...
* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', the player character was assigned to Vault 111 on the day the bombs fell, only to be stuffed along with the rest of the sheltering citizens into "depressurization pods" that cryonically froze them as part of the vault's secret project to study the long-term effects of such technology. Two hundred years later all the other pods have failed, leaving this Sole Survivor to wander the post-nuclear wasteland.
