** One that doesn't use Luna is ''FanFic/TheBridge'', where it is Princess Cadance that is an unknowing example [[spoiler: given it is heavily implied Princess Amore of the Crystal Empire a millennia ago was her mother. King Caesar spirited her away as a baby to escape from King Sombra after Sombra killed Amore. We next see them 1,000 years later with Caesar giving her away to a kindly young couple.]]

* Sassette in ''Fanfic/EmpathTheLuckiestSmurf'' was actually a real female Smurf who was trapped in a CrystalPrison for a century since she was a little Smurfling and awakened by Nat, Snappy, and Slouchy with no knowledge of how she became trapped in there in the first place. In "Little Sister Smurf Lost", though, she does find out that an evil wraith named Avengelica put her into the crystal, since Sassette expressed a desire to get even with the male Smurfs who at that time were mistreating her, and thus her hatred for them resurfaces as she exacts her revenge against them, particularly against her older brother Hefty.

* The Seven Sleepers of Ephesus were said to have hidden in a cave to escape persecution and fallen asleep there, only to wake decades later, after Christianity has triumphed, and be caught when one of them tries to buy coins with the old emperor's head on them.

* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' had a controlled example where [[spoiler: Asuna]] willingly went to sleep for one hundred years to help strengthen the base of the Magical World. [[spoiler: Since she's a HeavySleeper, she overslept by thirty years, and woke up to discover that her {{Vitriolic Best Bud|s}} Ayaka had died the year was supposed to wake up ([[IWillWaitForYou having kept herself alive through sheer willpower in hopes of seeing her one last time]]). [[TearJerker Asuna didn't take that revelation well]].]]

* ''Literature/SholanAlliance'': Thanks to spending 1500 years in an alien stasis cube, Rezac and Zashou get to experience a mix of this trope and ColdSleepColdFuture.

Compare the KingInTheMountain and HumanPopsicle. Compare ColdSleepColdFuture and AsleepForDays. See also YearOutsideHourInside, where the victim doesn't sleep away the years but spends them in an enchanted place. When the character is conscious during this it's TheSlowPath. An extreme version of this trope is SleptThroughTheApocalypse, where the [[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt world has ended]] while the protagonist slept. If you want to add humor when that person wakes up, use RipVanTinkle.

* Inverted in an episode of ''TheAngryBeavers''. The two beavers spend the entire episode trying to stay up all night, only to realize their clock is broken. When they go outside, decades have passed and they can see a futuristic city on the horizon.

* SouthPark did this in an early episode where the boys discover a man frozen in the ice of a cave. He'd been trapped there for 2-3 years, but everybody treats him like a defrosted caveman. When he tries to return home to his wife, he discovers she's remarried (after a few weeks) and has a pair of (somehow) nearly teenage children with her new husband.
