* With the help of a stray Unown, the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime's heroes go into a Larvitar's mind to find out what exactly went wrong to make him so untrusting of humans... an incident involving poachers that left its Tyranitar mother injured and the two separated when it was still in its egg!

* In the ''Manga/{{X1999}}'' anime and manga, the Taoist mystic Subaru takes a trip Within [[spoiler: to pull Kamui out of his HeroicBSOD and [[AngstComa catatonic state]] after Fuuma's FaceHeelTurn and Kotori's death]]. This overlaps with him being a milder example of a DreamWeaver as seen in ''TokyoBabylon'', where he entered the mind of a rape victim named Midori [[spoiler: who once was his ForgottenChildhoodFriend of sorts]] to help her deal with the trauma.

* The 1968 [[PsychedelicRock acid rock]] song ''Journey to the Center of the Mind'' by the Amboy Dukes is the TropeNamer. The title was apparently a psychedelic takeoff on JulesVerne's ''Literature/JourneyToTheCenterOfTheEarth'', replacing geology with psychology.

* Luke does this for Han in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' fic [["https://www.fanfiction.net/s/2717781/1/My-All "My All''.]] It's a sequel to an earlier fic where Han is brutally tortured and raped. At first, he appears to be recovering slowly in this fic, but then begins having hallucinations and panic attacks before retreating into his mind completely. Luke senses through the Force that Han is trapped watching a dream version of himself going through his ordeal. After talking with the doctors, Luke risks a potentially dangerous (to Han, if something goes wrong) technique of entering Han's mind through the Force, so he can help his brother-in-law deal do whatever needs to be done to pull him back to reality.

* In ''{{Smallville}}'', [[SuperMan Clark Kent]] does one of these to get some data from Lex Luthor's head and save his BroughtDownToNormal cousin Kara. It should be noted that the machine used for the trip had killed everyone who tried to use it before, but, well, it IS [[LuckilyMyPowersWillProtectMe Super]][[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands man]]. Inside Lex's head he finds [[AnthropomorphicPersonification two Lexes]], the adult, [[CorruptCorporateExecutive ruthless]] Lex, and a child Lex, referred to as [[ShoutOut Alexander]], who is good and helps Clark on the trip, while fearing the other one will attack him. Said kid coincidentally serves to revive [[StatusQuoIsGod Clark's faith that Lex can be redeemed]]. For a while, [[YouCantFightFate at least]].
