* [[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Miles Vorkosigan's]] senior bodyguard in later volumes apparently prefers to sleep in his boxer shorts, which causes him some embarrassment when there's a security incident in the middle of the night. [[FemaleGaze The ladies of the household are rather pleased though.]]

* In ''{{Discworld}}[=/=]Series/TheBigBangTheory'' crossover ''Fanfic/TheManyWorldsInterpretation'', Discworld Assassin Johanna Smith-Rhodes, responding quickly to an emergency need to guard Sheldon Cooper against a peril they have brought from the Disc with them, reasons that good weapons are more vital in a fight than getting dressed. Thus she pulls her weapons-belt on over very minimal nightwear. This provokes a certain jealousy from Howard and Raj the next morning, who bemoan the fact that hot chicks always get naked in front of a man it's ''wasted'' on.

* Sam Vimes of ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' has been in this position a couple of times. In ''Discworld/GuardsGuards'' he sticks his feet in Lady Sybil's bunny slippers to deal with an armed mob, and his dignity is only just saved by a dragon's timely belch. In ''Discworld/{{Thud}}'', he's woken from a deep sleep to attend a police emergency. At some point, someone (presumably Sybil) had put a ducky blanket from his son's nursery around his shoulders... he {{Death Glare}}s the officers in the parlor, daring them to say one word about it.
* James Herriot from the All Creatures Great and Small books was a country vet. This meant that he (as well as Seigfried and Tristan) spent a few stories in his PJs being called out for a late night calving. This once caused poor James to try and purchase some coffee on the way home only to realize his wallet and his pants were not with him...

* Ellie in ''VideoGame/MonsterTale'' is technically in her nightgown in the game, though it ''does'' resemble a regular if very plain short dress. However, the ending cinematic makes it clear that it's not her regular clothes.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', a few episodes have Steven almost entirely dressed in his pajamas. While one episode is about a slumber party which justifies his clothing, another time he decides to not fall asleep for two nights, yet still dresses into his pajamas, ending with him [[spoiler: following a weird creature and almost freezing to death in the warp]].

* ''ComicBook/PowerPack'' in their first adventure where they gained their powers and rescued their parents from the Snarks. Justified since the Snark attacked them in the middle of the night and the kids got dragged into the fight without a chance to get dressed first.

** The Tenth Doctor spends a good deal of time running around in his jim-jams after regenerating, even [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome engaging in a swordfight]] before changing into his dayclothes. [[PopCulturedBadass He even references his Arthur Dent look]].
