* Both Yang and Cinder get these in ''FanFic/TheRWBYLoops'', with separate causes and each preying on their insecurities. Notably, Yang's are guided by a specific entity and, eventually, she manages to conquer the issue without losing her mind; Cinder's are portrayed as surreal and mind-breaking, probably because they're caused by Slenderman, and by the time she shakes them off she is utterly insane.

Some dreams are heart-warming visions of hope, filled with cute and cuddly creatures, so delightful they make you want to fall asleep right away. Other dreams--aren't.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* Zero's opening cutscene in ''VideoGame/MegaManX4'' has Zero waking up only to be ordered by Dr. Wily to destroy his arch-nemesis. Zero then suffers a headache as he's being forced to carry out those orders. The scene cuts to a laboratory, followed by Sigma screaming for his life, then we're treated to still shots of some Reploids brutally murdered with their mangled body parts and blood splattered throughout, Zero's blood-soaked hands, more dead bodies, then a close-up of one of his victims before finally waking up for real. Zero implies that he has this nightmare more than once.

* The heroine in ''Film/NextOfKin1982'' experiences two of these over the course of the film, both hinting at events from her childhood and the possibility of a family curse. In the first, she sees herself as a young girl wandering the deserted hallways of the Montclare retirement home while carrying a red ball. In the second, she sees a recent drowning victim [[SurrealHorror swimming towards her window and tapping at it]].

* In {{Transmetropolitan}}, Spider Jerusalem has one after he stuffs himself with drugs (again) when he realizes he has become a Japanese-like anime, a cheesy live action TV series and a [[RuleThirtyFour porn movie]]. Sadly, he has a fairly good dream at the beginning.

Some dreams are heart-warming visions of hope, filled with cute and cuddly creatures, sod delightful they make you want to fall asleep right away. Other dreams--aren't.

There are nightmares that [[NightmareFuel chill your soul]]. They are a journey through a warped mirror of reality where {{Transformation Trauma}}s abound and {{Primal Fear}}s are on public parade. All our comforting certainties melt away, and chaos reigns supreme. Quite frankly, after a dream like that it would almost be a relief to encounter the [[EldritchAbomination Outer Gods]] dancing to the eldritch music of blasphemous flutes.
