* One of Carter's sermons you can listen to in ''VideoGame/Harvest MoonFriendsOfMineralTown'', features this trope, in the form of a little boy deciding to save up his pocket money to buy an alarm clock to 'wake up' his mother, after his father tells him that she's 'sleeping'. Carter then questions whether it was right or wrong of the father to lie to his son.

* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' uses this in the first episode, where the little kid that Yusuke saved visits Yusuke's funeral. He says something like "Why is he in the box? Is he sleeping? Can I play with him tomorrow?"
** When Yusuke dies again after being killed by Sensui, Kuwabara rushes over to him and thinks he's faking it too fool him, Hiei and Kurama like he did to Yusuke when Younger Toguro seemingly killed him. He desperately puts his hand over Yusuke's mouth and nose to make him drop the act... [[TearJerker but to his horror Yusuke isn't acting.]]

* The climax of ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie''. Ash, having been hit by Mew and Mewtwo's attacks, is turned to stone. Pikachu runs up to him and desperately tries to shock him back to wakefulness, wearing himself out in the process. [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids Amazingly]] [[TearJerker poignant]], as at first Pikachu seems confused, playing this trope to the letter, and then in denial, continuing to try and shock Ash awake even when it's apparent that his efforts are useless. Ash [[DisneyDeath gets better]], but it takes the tears of a small army of Pokémon to do it. TWO small armies of Pokémon, one of which is comprised entirely of the clones of the entire other one. Along with the tears of three humans. In fact, we're lucky Pokémon tears are full of life [[PlotArmor or else that would've ended the series right there]].

* In ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear [=Xrd=] SIGN/REVELATOR'', [[CreepyChild Bedman's]] [[OneHitKill Instant Kill]] has him subjecting his rival to (thankfully off-screen) MindRape.

* Literature/TheBible actually has several points where "sleeping" is used as a metaphor for "dead". When Jesus is on the way to the grave of his (recently deceased) friend Lazarus, he tells his disciples that Lazarus is "sleeping" and he is going to "wake him up". (He then raises him from the dead.) He also uses the same metaphor when he raises a young girl from the dead. Also, Paul refers to dead believers as "sleeping in Christ" in one of his letters. There are also several passages of people going to "sleep" with their fathers. This metaphor reflects the Christian belief that death isn't permanent (and also for some, that there is no afterlife, as an afterlife would require consciousness to be aware of it).

* ''ShinryakuIkaMusume'' gives us a moment in Episode 5, in the last segment, titled "Won't You Keep It?" [[TearJerker Mini-Ika sits on a hospital bed as an aged Eiko passes from this world. She tries to wake her lifelong friend, to no avail]]. Thank goodness it turned out to be AllJustADream.
