* In ''ThePresidentsAnalyst'', the pressures of the job turn the title character paranoid to where he sees spies tailing him everywhere - he wakes up from a nightmare that his girlfriend is a spy.

Added DiffLines:

This kind of ending is quite often used by young children to create a TwistEnding, and as such it's fairly hard to execute well as a more mature writer, since it's considered a bit of a [[{{cliche}} cliché]] by some, and some detractors even consider it a DeadHorseTrope. Still, TropesAreNotBad, and when done well such an ending can be used very effectively.

That case of TheDogBitesBack turned out to be [[AllJustADream a dream]]. When Garfield tried to kick real Odie, he turned around like dream!Odie.

%% * ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' uses this trope in the Saikoroshi-hen chapter. Or possibly not, since it was a real world, as well. But since Rika did not choose that one, it becomes a dream. But her matricide still exists.
