* In "Literature/ThePrincessAndTheGoblin" by GeorgeMacdonald, Princess Irene's great-grandmother (also named Princess Irene) acts as one of these. No-one is quite sure whether or not to believe Princess Irene, even after her great-grandmother engineers a massive victory against the Goblins.

%% The same plot was used with Sylvester and Tweety bird, with Tweety thinking a bottle of "Hyde Formula" would naturally [[{{Pun}} be a great place to hide]] from the cat. He repeatedly turns into a monster, but only Sylvester ever sees it happen, and when the other cats see him flee from the tiny Tweety they think he's nuts. (not a proper example, as aside from the beginning and end the short is entirely just a nightmare Sylvester had and Tweety never really turned into a Hyde monster. Sylvester just sees Tweety when he wakes up and thinks it's happening for real.)

* In ''Webcomic/Archipelago'' Claire's imaginary friend Benjamin is actually the holographic avatar of the Artificial Intelligence that runs the ancient war machine buried under her home. He appears to Claire alone in order to save power, because a little girl wouldn't question such things, and because he saw that she was lonely.

* In Disney's Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame, it's ambiguous as to whether or not Quasimodo's gargoyle friends are real or products of his imagination, and Frollo at one point reminds Quasi' that stone can't talk. Near the end, just before [[spoiler: Frollo's DisneyVillainDeath]], a different gargoyle Frollo's clinging to for support ''growls'' at him. His expression is one of [[OhCrap shocked horror.]]
