** Due to the psychology-themed nature of the character, this trope has cropped up repeatedly over the years, but Jenkins's use of it stands out as the most notable. Other examples include the time he made physical contact with the Watcher's "Ultimate Machine," which sent him on a sort of vision quest to come to terms with Betty's death; the depiction of his psychiatric session with Doc Samson that resulted in his personalities being merged; the appearance of his three childhood imaginary friends during the Crossroads Saga, who helped Banner find his way back from psychic oblivion; and various dream sequences over the years in which he comes into physical conflict with one or more of his Hulk personae.

* Part of the way through ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie'', the heroes enter [[IdiotHero Emmett's]] mind to see if he has the potential to be a Master Builder. It's quite empty, but that emptiness allows Emmett to have clarity of mind far beyond even the greatest of Master Builders (as he's the only character to have seen The Man Upstairs).



* In Simon Spurrier's TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Literature/NightLords novel ''Lord of the Night'', the eldar trap Sahaal in his own mind. The psyker Mita is caught with him and at first thinks it's a daemon world. She explains the situation, he persuades her, and she frees him.

* ''Webcomic/AwfulHospital'': In both The Hospital and The Morgue, examination of both [[http://www.bogleech.com/awfulhospital/321.html living]] and [[http://www.bogleech.com/awfulhospital/221.html dead]] bodies takes the form of [[http://www.bogleech.com/awfulhospital/323.html entering]] [[http://www.bogleech.com/awfulhospital/222.html doors]] that cross over into [[http://www.bogleech.com/awfulhospital/324.html metaphysical]] [[http://www.bogleech.com/awfulhospital/297.html worlds]] which mirror what's happening to these bodies. Very much like the worlds accessible by the Psycho-Portals in Tim Schafer's ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}.''



* In the ''WesternAnimation/JimmyNeutron'' episode "I Dream of Jimmy," Jimmy travels into Carl's highly-illogical dream-scape to deal with his friend's recurring nightmare.

* 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.
