* [[Literature/{{Discworld}} Sam Vimes]] showed some signs of this, expressing some irritation at being woken up at ''9AM'' when he normally doesn't get up "until the afternoon's had the shine worn off it" at one point in ''Discworld/MenAtArms'', but that's probably acclimatisation from spending most of his adult life working the night shift. Promotion to Commander of the City Watch brings more normal working hours... [[WhenYouComingHomeDad for a given value of "normal",]] and even ''that'' ended up being a DefiedTrope.

** Ridcully is a late sleeper... and most unfairly, is an early riser as well, something the other wizards truly cannot comprehend.

* Hikari in ''Manga/InterviewsWithMonsterGirls''. Justified in that she's a vampire with a downplayed case of WeakenedByTheLight, which means mornings are unpleasant (but not deadly) to her.

* In ''Literature/{{Edgedancer}}'', it turns out Lift is one - when Wyndle tries to wake her up because of an emergency, it takes her a good while to remember where she is, what she's been doing there and why she's asked Wyndle to wake her up.

* ''Disney/WallE'': PlayedForLaughs to show just how human-like the title robot has become. When he wakes up in the morning, his battery is low and he stumbles around his trailer much like a person would: groaning, arms drooped, running into things, and fumbling for his "shoes" (his caterpillar tracks). He's not really "awake" until he has a breakfast of sunlight.

* A running theme pf the ''GarrettPI'' novels is Garrett's intense aversion to hauling himself out of bed before noon, and his crotchety housekeeper's various ways of nagging, aggravating and/or threatening him into doing so. Made more ironic by Garrett's own need to hassle the Dead Man into waking up at ''any'' hour of the day.

* Folgers made [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSW1m83GqzY a commercial]] showing what morning sunlight feels like to Not Morning People: a bunch of annoyingly upbeat glowing yellow people singing [[EarWorm an insanely catchy song]] and getting in the faces of everyone who just wants to sleep in or shower or walk to work in peace. One guy, however, manages to lope to the kitchen for some Folgers coffee, and once he has a cup, he starts smiling a little and tapping his finger to the beat of the song. The ad's tagline? Tolerate mornings.

* Eiko Megami (A-ko) from ''Anime/ProjectAKo'' is a notorious oversleeper, often not waking up until Shiiko (C-Ko) is ringing her doorbell to walk to school. Making up for this often has A-Ko breaking the sound barrier to get the school on time.
