* A particularly interesting example is in the manga version of ''Manga/GunsmithCats''. Rally Vincent has been hospitalized and complains that the pillow isn't comfortable. Upon receiving a small pistol to hide under it, she sighs and [[HeavySleeper falls asleep so deeply]] that Becky is able to pick her up by the scruff of her shirt and (attempt to) shake her down for gas money... but awakens instantly when she tries to take back the pistol (though again fails get gas money). And sleeps right through her [[FaceDoodling doodling on her face]].\\\

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbara_Stager Barbara Stager]] tried to invoke this trope when she murdered her husband Russ. However, several things tore her story apart: her husband, a member of the US Army Reserves, would have known better than to leave a gun with the safety off under his pillow; the trajectory of the bullet and the location of the spent shell casing made it clear the gun was fired from the opposite side of the bed; and Barbara herself was unable to recreate the scenario she described to the police.
