* A famously bizarre UrbanLegend states that WaltDisney was frozen and placed under the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. Besides Pirates of the Caribbean, it can be the castle and Matterhorn which are popular locations people claim he's in. He was actually cremated (which, if you think about it, is the ''opposite'' of this trope).

* Used in the 2001 version of ''Manga/{{Cyborg 009}}'' on the first four cyborgs, in order to keep Albert Heinrich/004's attempt to cross the BerlinWall intact. While logically all four of them should have suffered considerable culture shock, [[GermanicDepressives Albert]] gets the most specific and frequent comments on how much has changed in forty years. Ivan/001 was an infant before being placed in suspended animation, and was still an infant going out: he wasn't old enough to know what the world was like before he became a cyborg to be able to make such comments after the process.

''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'' has Ventus, who gets frozen by one of the game's [[BigBad Big Bad's]] to the point that he cannot move. It is lampshaded when one of his mooks refers to Ventus as a Popsicle.

* On ''Series/LALaw'', an old friend of Jonathan's from law school turns up and tells him she's dying of a brain tumor, and wants him to help her get a court order to have herself cryonically frozen. Opposing her, the state claims that such an order would be tantamount to the courts licensing euthanasia for sick people.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', the Kamal, a race of "snow demons" native to the yet-unseen in the series continent of [[{{Wutai}} Akavir]], are said to freeze every winter and thaw out every spring. When they thaw out, they attack the Tang Mo, an Akaviri race of "monkey folk" who always successfully defend themselves. The one time the Kamal broke this ViciousCycle was to attack Tamriel (the land where all of the ''ES'' games have taken place to date) and that attack failed as well.

** This is said to be the fate of the Atmorans, natives of Nirn's northernmost continent of Atmora. In the 1st Era, many migrated from the slowly freezing-over Atmora to Skyrim in the north of Tamriel. After toppling the civilization of the [[OurElvesAreBetter Falmer (Snow Elves)]] and nearly driving them to extinction, the Atmorans settled and interbred with Tamriel's native race of men, the Nedes, making them [[{{Precursors}} the ancestors]] of the modern [[HornyVikings Nords]]. Expeditions to Atmora in the 2nd and 3rd Eras found it to be nothing more than a frozen wasteland with no signs of intelligent life. According to the Dunmeri PhysicalGod Vivec in his ''[[InGameNovel Lessons of Vivec]]'' book series, he traveled there with [[FounderOfTheKingdom Lord Nerevar]] and "found nothing but frozen bearded kings".

* ''Undertow'' by Elizabeth Bear had galactic society that used Schrodinger's Uncertainty Principle to teleport goods and information instantly between planets. However, living creatures like humans that went through the process wound up dead on the other side due to collapsing the wave function. As such, transporting people from planet to planet requires slower-than-light ships and cryonics.

* ''VideoGame/{{X-COM}}: Terror From the Deep'' gives us ''alien'' popsicles. Most of the aliens were kept in cryonic sleep chambers for thousands of years. You can even find some of these in Alien Colonies and Artifact Sites.
