* No one seems to sleep that well in ''SlightlyDamned'', as a significant portion of the characters get either nightmares or RecurringDreams.

Added DiffLines:

* One episode of ''Bones'' cold-opens with the titular character having a nightmare related to a recurring BigBad. After a few very well-crafted snap-cuts and surreal rapid-fire imagery, however, the impact is somewhat reduced when the sequence cuts to a shot of hundreds of versions of the BigBad, each holding random case-related objects.

* Played with in ''VideoGame/NeverendingNightmares'', in that the entire ''game'' is a nightmare sequence for the main character. [[spoiler:The reality he wakes up to in the end is determined by MultipleEndings.]]



** ''VideoGame/NightmareNed'' also had a PC game made by Disney Interactive. The entire game is one big nightmare sequence, and to get the good ending you have to solve puzzles and reveal the shadowy monsters that plague Ned's dreams.

* ''[[VideoGame/LunarTheSilverStar Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete]]'' has a brief but remarkably puissant nightmare sequence. As Alex sleeps in the middle of the woods, we get treated to a cutscene of his nightmare. The kidnapped love interest, Luna, appears against a black background. Her singing can be heard in the background, along with her crying out Alex's name twice and a strange gurgling sound. The camera begins to zoom in on her and her shouts become more frantic. Suddenly, the singing stops and her voice warps into an unnatural low pitch (if there's such a thing as an UncannyValley for voices, this sequence nails it perfectly) and a bloody liquid suddenly floods the bottom of the screen.

* Most of the ''Series/{{Dollhouse}}'' episode "The Attic" is not just a nightmare sequence, but a parallel nightmare world in which inmates' fears can kill them not only in the dream sphere, but also in real life.

* In ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', [[Comicbook/{{Batman}} Bruce]] has several nightmare sequences, the first one being the opening of the film itself, with Bruce reliving [[DeathByOriginStory his parent's murder]], and the day of their funeral, where he accidently fell into the caves beneath the Wayne estate, disturbing the bats within. Although it's subverted with the "Knightmare", the most notable "nightmare sequence", where Bruce finds himself in a wasteland that was once Gotham, as a [[LaResistance resistance fighter]] against an oppressive regime led by Comicbook/{{Superman}}. The fact that the nightmare contains things Bruce doesn't know about at this point, such as [[Comicbook/NewGods Parademons]], and the appearance of [[Comicbook/TheFlash Barry Allen]] at the end with a OminousMessageFromTheFuture, makes this clear this wasn't a dream, but a vision of a BadFuture.
