* In the ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' episode ''Nightmares and Daydreams'', Aang's nightmares and hallucinations are quite strange. Ozai as a giant who taunts Aang about Aang not wearing pants, Aang with AnimeHair, Aang falling into a giant abacus because he forgot about his math test, and [[TeamPet Appa and Momo]] having a swordfight while koala-sheep cheer them on and a six-armed version of Guru Pathik floats by on a cloud singing a nonsensical song about chakras.

After all this silliness, the final nightmare comes as a real shock: it's as weird and free-associating as the rest, but much darker and based on reality, in the way of really bad dreams everywhere.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' has a massive example of this trope in Chapter 24. It starts with a strange parody of both in story stress and the author mocking Betrayal fics, which quickly goes crazy to include rocks with top hats, Ash taking the role of Clovis La Britannia, Gary acting like Gollum, and then the local MissingNo shows up...just as the dream ends.

* Interestingly played with in TheInfiniteLoops. Twilight Sparkle complains about a surreal dream to her friends, while equally surreal events occur around her; the distinction, of course, is that the latter [[ItMakesSenseInContext are things she's gotten used to.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfPussInBoots'', Puss's dreams generally involve sideways gravity and [[CoolHorse Babieca]] being a unicorn. Who can talk. And fly.

* In ''[[Series/{{Blackadder}} [=Blackadder=] 2]]'', [[MilesGloriosus Walter Raleigh]] says he's brought [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Queen Elizabeth]] lands beyond her wildest dreams...her response is to ask if he's sure because she's had some pretty wild dreams, like the one where [[FreudWasRight she was a sausage roll, or the one where there was this enormous tree and she was sitting right on top of it]].

* In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban'', the Divination teacher expects her students to have significant dreams, so they lie about having these instead of the silly ones. Harry also has a number of rather bizarre and nonsensical dreams throughout the series as well as his more meaningful ones. It borders on a RunningGag at times.

* In ''[[TheLaundrySeries The Jennifer Morgue]]'', Bob can tell his dream is ''really'' weird as it follows a linear structure (seeing through the eyes of Ramona Random via 'destiny entanglement") instead of featuring camel-headed spider gods trying to get him to sign a Microsoft User Agreement.
* In ''[[Literature/TheNameOfTheRose The Name of the Rose]]'', Adso has a very bizarre dream mixing recollections from one of his past readings (the ''Coena Cypriani'') along with the people and dramatic events currently taking place in the abbey. This leads afterwards to [[spoiler: an [[EurekaMoment Eureka Moment]] ]].

* Normally, demigods from ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' have meaningful dreams (which is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] to Hades and back), but Percy mentions a reocurring dream he has where he's taking a standardized test while wearing a straightjacket.
