* Pretty much the entire premise of ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'', which [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructs]] the typical fantasy frame-story of the whole thing being a dream, by [[MindScrew being genuinely dreamlike and nonsensical]].

* 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 [[http://skin-horse.com/comic/todays-comic-768/ this]] ''SkinHorse'' strip, Unity responds to the Abbess's description of her prophetic dream with an inverted MarshmallowDream ("I dreamed I ate all the pillows in the house, and when I woke up the marshmallows were gone!")

'Is it? It's not my dream', said Didactylos. I always dream of a giant carrot chasing me through a field of lobsters.'''

Added DiffLines:

* The shot game ''VideoGame/{{Psychosomnium}}'' is set inside a dream, and it mimics the characteristics of actual dreams. The narrative is vague and disjointed, the player frequently experiences switches from one protagonist to another, and the entire thing ends with a somewhat creepy GainaxEnding (which may represent a dream suddenly turning scary moments before the sleeper wakes up.)

* 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.

* ''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.
