* While the words are never uttered, in the ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''-episode "Off Colors", Steven kneels down next to [[spoiler:[[CowardlyLion Lars]], [[HeroicSacrifice who isn't moving]] [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath or breathing]]]] , grabs him by the collar and shakes him in a way that is very reminiscent of someone trying to wake up a heavy sleeper.

* Apparently, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zaP7STV1aFs this cat]]. For that matter, cats do this every day to their owners. They start off with sniffing them, then poke them in the face.

* Hilariously subverted in Creator/ChuckJones' ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cugri2hBqxA A Bear For Punishment]]'', when Junyer Bear attempt to give his dear old Dad a shave with a jagged straight razor.

* In ''VideoGame/{{BioShock|1}}'', the Little Sisters go "Mister Bubbles, please wake up!" when their Big Daddy is killed. This is apparently a side effect of their mental states, since they get over it rather quickly when the player heals them ([[VideoGameCrueltyPotential you ''are'' healing them, right?]]). They also can't tell the difference between the various Big Daddies, since in the sequel, they will treat the player (a Big Daddy himself) as if he were the same Big Daddy he just killed, with a happy "Mr. Bubbles, you're back!!" Some Splicers also say: "Come on, get up. I was only foolin'!" after they shit-kick you.

* Non-verbally done in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', where the [=AT=]-[=STs=] are firing at the Ewoks, and hit a pair dead on...and one of them gets up and starts nudging the other. Considered a {{Narm}} by some viewers, but considering the child-friendly marketing of the Ewoks, also a strong example of WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids.

* Possibly the most soul-crushing and heart-wrending example in film is the 1979 version of ''Film/TheChamp'', wherein the titular character, (Jon Voight) dies in the locker room shortly after winning a brutal boxing match and his young son, played by Ricky Schroeder, (whose acting chops here bury most full grown adult actors), goes into an emotional meltdown trying to get his dad to wake up. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9sAB4JFh4Q You can it watch here.]] If you can get through this without sobbing, you may in fact have no soul.

The most common outcome of AndCallHimGeorge Sometimes includes HowDareYouDieOnMe. Contrast TalkingToTheDead. If the person is unconscious or comatose and not dead, it's ConverseWithTheUnconscious. If the person who sees the death snaps completely, it could develop into a case of MummiesAtTheDinnerTable.
