* In [[Creator/UrsulaKLeGuin Ursula Le Guin]]'s ''[[Literature/EarthseaTrilogy The Other Wind]]'', the wizard Alder is plagued by dreams of his wife in the land of the dead.
* In the ''WheelOfTime'' epic series, there is Tel'aran'rhiod, the World of Dreams. Careful Dreamers can navigate this world while they sleep to gather information or meet with each other. It's never a safe place though, because any wound or physical damage carries over to the real world, and any object can be created just by imagining it, including weapons. Occasionally ordinary people accidentally pop in while dreaming normally, usually to disappear after just a few minutes or seconds, unaware that they'd been there at all. On the other hand, sometimes hitting the ground in your dreams can end up being fatal after all...

* {{Catherine}} revolves around Vincent, the protagonist, along with many other men, being pulled into a dream world where [[EverythingIsTryingToKillYou everything is trying to kill him]] because he cheated on his girlfriend.
* ''GrandiaII'' features a sidequest with the demon hunters shacking up in Mirumu, a town where people are becoming trapped in their sleep. This is a long sidequest and will take some figuring out: Apparently, a flock of [[{{Oculothorax}} Eyeball Bat]]s are attaching themselves to peoples' faces at night, making them dream of a garden paradise which they never want to leave. The heroes seemingly take out the nest of monsters in the catacombs beneath town -- but the real culprit is the MonsterProgenitor, which is hiding [[spoiler:inside a little girl]].

He himself has refused to sleep for nearly a month, the only rest he's gotten being a couple of occasions where he was knocked out.

-->"''Stealing their body and breath\\
'Til only a shell is left!\\
Witness to Hell in the flesh!\\
A fight to the death!\\
Screaming "Where's the relief?!"\\
Maybe no more sleep!''"
