* One of the earliest narrative films ever made, ''Film/RipVanWinkle'', is a 4 1/2-minute film dramatizing the Trope Namer's visit with some strange spirits, followed by his 20-year-nap and revival in the woods.

* Justified in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'', where [[spoiler: Steve Rogers gets frozen in the arctic in the 1940s and is woken up again in modern times. Needless to say, he's a bit surprised when he puts it together (because Steve had been at the baseball game SHIELD put on the radio to put him at ease).]]

* In the children's picture book ''[[https://www.amazon.co.uk/Frog-Durrington-Dormouse-Smith-1978-03-01/dp/B01K3NJIBK/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1496942318&sr=8-12&keywords=frog+band The Frog Band and Durrington Dormouse]]'', Durrington, after a life at sea, runs into the woods to escape a press gang. He runs into Mad Maude the Toad, who gives him a drink. This sends him to sleep and he awakes to find everything completely different. It's not made clear how long he was alseep, but, given that he went to sleep in an age of press gangs and woke up in the twentieth century, it was probably over 100 years.

* "We Won't Get Fooled Again" by Music/TheWho is an interpretation of the original story, which used the twenty year nap to illustrate that the Revolutionary War (which happened while he slept) really didn't change anything at all, and he was basically living in the same world. It's a bit hidden in the song, but certain lyrics like "And the marching on the left/ Is now the marching on the right/ And the beards have all grown longer overnight" make it a definite reference.
* The song L Dopa by Music/BigBlack is about a girl who falls asleep in her teens and wakes up as an old woman. The woman decides that she'd rather die than continue living since she literally slept her entire productive life away, however the doctors feel that all life is worth saving regardless of the patient's input on the matter, so she's unable to have her request fulfilled.

* ArthurCClarke's ''3001: The Final Odyssey'', the last and final volume in his ''Space Odyssey'' series, finds Frank Poole--previously killed by HAL in the first book--discovered by a space-tug after floating about the Kuyper Belt for a millennium; the absolute zero temperature of deep space having preserved his body, which the ultra-advanced society of 3001 is able to heal and bring back to life.

* Happens to [[spoiler: Shinji Ikari]] in the third ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'' movie, who has the misfortune of spending fourteen years - more or less as long as he'd even been alive before - as a HumanPopsicle, with the double whammy of finding out that he [[NiceJobBreakingItHero accidentally annihilated the Biosphere]] in a [[spoiler: futile]] attempt to [[AlwaysSaveTheGirl save his love interest]]. The earth is a PostApocalypticWasteland, most of his friends are dead, and those who aren't are ten years older and now hate his guts for the aforementioned catastrophe, including his former ParentalSubstitute who gives him the no-son-of-mine treatment and puts an ExplosiveLeash on him, and his former friend/comrade/flat mate who tells him in no uncertain terms that she despises him, shattering a wall of security glass to do so.

* In the backstory for ''VideoGame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink'', a previous princess named Zelda (separate from the one encountered in the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI preceding game]]) had a cruel brother who mistreated the citizens of Hyrule with the help of an evil wizard. When Zelda refused to tell her brother what she knew about the location of the Triforce, the wizard tried to kill her with a spell that instead killed him and put Zelda in a deep slumber. The remorseful brother placed his sister in a castle tower in the hope that she would one day be woken up. The plot of the game involves Link finding the Triforce of Courage to do so.
