*''Manga/MakenKi'': The 89.5 omake chapter has Usui dream of getting Aki drunk enough to play Twister with [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl Love Espada.]] Then takes advantage of the situation by having them strip naked, though he covers Aki's nipples and nether region with [[ChekhovsGun heart shaped pasties.]] It lasts long enough for Usui to feel both of them up[[note]]Espada was sober and said [[AllWomenAreLustful she was perfectly willing]][[/note]] until he finally passes out form his nosebleed. When he awakes in the school infirmary and sees Aki is fully clothed, he laments that he had only dreamt it. But, after he leaves, one of the pasties is seen in the trashbin and Aki is visibly disturbed, suggesting the incident might've actually happened.

* The ending of [[Literature/{{Okuyyuki}} "Okuyyuki"]]. Did Reilly [[spoiler: die, become a ''kami'' and meet Audrey's spirit, or did he just die, period, hallucinating that in his last moments]]?

* ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'', Characters/{{SCP Foundation SCPs 1000 And Beyond}}, [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1587 SCP-1587 ("Dreamland")]]. When a professor uses a lucid dreaming device his dreams are just like reality. When he wakes up from them he has a FantasyKeepsake that shows that the dream was real, such as a pieces of a candy table he broke off in a Candyland setting or a jeweled necklace. It comes back to bite him when he dreams of Nazi Germany and the Holocaust: he's [[KillingYourAlternateSelf killed by a Nazi version of himself]] he brought back with him.

* Played with all through ''Literature/TheMidnightFolk''. All the supernatural events end with Kay waking up, but the "mundane" adventure story (where he's definitely awake) only makes sense if the things he learns on these expeditions are true.

* In ''WesternAnimation/OverTheGardenWall'', [[spoiler: near the end it is suggested that the journey into The Unknown was a dream Wirt had after falling into a river, but some signs suggest he and Greg did go there - including a blink-and-you'll-miss-it image of the frog's stomach glowing, a CallBack to the eighth episode]].

** ''Film/{{Brazil}}'' is the story of an adult dreamer, and reverses the trope. At the end, Sam is StrappedToAnOperatingTable, about to be tortured by an acquaintance, an ObstructiveBureaucrat who knows ''very well that he doesn't know anything'', but is rescued by LaResistance JustInTime. He reunites with his {{Love Interest|s}} and they retire to the countryside… [[spoiler:only to reveal that he hasn't physically escaped at all. Throughout the movie, he used his powerful imagination as his own personal LotusEaterMachine for periodic escapes from the bureaucratic CrapsackWorld he was born into, and knowing that his Love Interest is dead and no one is coming to save him, he enters his fantasy world one last time and locks himself in it, escaping his tormentors forever. They know it, and don't even bother to unstrap him, they just leave his body to die and rot as he wistfully sings Ary Barroso's "Brazil".]]

Sometimes, at the end of a DreamSequence or an AllJustADream episode, after the character in question has woken up and demonstrated any [[AnAesop Aesop]] that the dream might have been communicating, there's some small hint that it wasn't a dream after all, even though it quite obviously was... right?

* The book ''What's a Gonzo?'' based on ''WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies'' focuses on Gonzo apparently going into an alternate universe behind the mirror where everybody looks like him and their names rhyme with his name but not even they know their own species and even a supposedly all-knowing robot gives names when asked "what am I?" rather than species. Gonzo, however, is satisfied with not knowing his species and they drink milkshakes. It ends with Fozzie shaking Gonzo awake, indicating it was a dream, but then Gonzo states that he is not hungry because he's just had the milkshake.
