SubTrope of DaydreamSurprise, which need not be violent. Contrast ImagineSpot, where it's clear from the start that this is all in Alice's head, sometimes through the use of a FadeToWhite. Compare EnemyWithout.

EnemyWithout. It's as good a means as any for enabling {{Superdickery}}.

* This is the central gimmick of ''Series/SamuraiGourmet''. Once (or more) an episode mild-mannered Kasumi will indulge in a fantasy where a Sengoku ronin demonstrates how a real badass would handle his social dilemma. Only once was violence the samurai's answer; usually it's closer to EasyEvangelism, though holding a sword does help. However, the fantasies are not ''pure'' indulgence, as they always inspire increased assertiveness in Kasumi--not that he follows through every time.
