* Downplayed example in a book in TheBabysittersClub that featured a giant sleepover as a reward for a fundraiser; one of the kids starts sleepwalking and one of the supervisors follows him around until he goes back to sleep. All in all, it was one of the less annoying things that happened during the event.

* Once in a [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII postwar]] comic, WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck had a case of sleepwalking happen, in a revisit of his previous brush with it before the war. This time around, his nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie tried to wake him up with firecrackers. Donald awakes to the loud noises, mistakes the firecrackers for a Japanese-laid minefield, and has a [[ShellShockedVeteran violent episode]], forcing his nephews to flee to the garden.

* In ''Webcomic/GirlsNextDoor'', [[ThePhantomOfTheOpera Erik]] advises [[{{Labyrinth}} Sarah]] not to wake Christine when she finds her sleepwalking toward his room for some late-night music lessons. Sarah dryly informs him that modern science has disproved that notion, then makes him promise to forget the potential trauma and just [[BrickJoke dump a bucket of cold water on her]] if he ever finds her sleepwalking toward Jareth's room.

* Averted in ''DesperateHousewives'': Susan finds Orson standing on her front lawn naked and muttering to himself. Once she figures out he's sleepwalking, she slaps him awake.
to:
* One ''Series/AllThat'' sketch was built around this, with a teacher being repeatedly told not to wake up a sleepwalking student, in spite of him doing some incredibly bizarre things. By the end of the sketch, however, it's implied he was only faking it. * Averted in ''DesperateHousewives'': ''Series/DesperateHousewives'': Susan finds Orson standing on her front lawn naked and muttering to himself.

* In ''ElChavoDelOcho'', Doņa Clotilde and Doņa Florida are seen sleepwalking and Don Ramon refused to wake them up or even disturb them recalling that it'd be bad for them. El Chavo later abuses this by pretending to sleepwalk in Kiko's house to take some bread.

* In RealLife, the myth originally began from the belief that soul separates from the body during sleep, and awoken sleepwalker would wake up separate from their soul, potentially with all kinds of horrible results. While the myth has been debunked in practice several times over, it does still apply in situations where a sleepwalker ends up in dangerous locations, like an edge of the roof, in which case the shock may well end up killing them, albeit indirectly, as they stumble in panic.
