* ''Film/StarTrekGenerations''. Captain Picard and Dr. Soran, the villain, enter the Nexus, a dimension of eternal pleasure that shapes itself to your desires. Picard is told by a mental projection of Guinan that he can use it to travel anywhere in time, and so he goes back right before Soran blew up the sun that destroyed the planet they were on and the Enterprise. It's entirely plausible that Picard never did leave the Nexus, and that he still exists there to continue his voyages in his own perfect reality. And if he did really travel through time and stopped Soran, whether the Soran that entered the Nexus in the alternate timeline is actually still there. In fact, see the [[WMG/StarTrek Trek]] WildMassGuessing page for more interpretation of this.



* ''Film/TheMatrix''. Particularly at the end of the [[Film/TheMatrixReloaded second movie]] when Neo was able to stop a machine with his mind in what was supposed to be the real world when nobody had shown powers in the real world before, fans speculated that the "real world" might just have been another layer of the matrix used to control rebellious minds. One of the comics also references the TropeNamer in a short comic where a monk or something beats up some agents.
* The deleted scenes of ''Film/X2XMenUnited'' show that Jason didn't just make Xavier think he was back at the institute, he made him think that he succeeded in convincing Jason to let him escape from the LotusEaterMachine.
* As ''Film/{{Brazil}}'' unfolds, the line between the real world and Sam's dreams gets progressively blurrier. The final scene reveals that Sam's escape [[spoiler:was a delusion, likely brought on by the trauma of being tortured by his friend Jack.]]



* ''Film/MinorityReport'': [[spoiler: Did John Anderton clear his name or was the ending of the film just a dream he was having in his containment cell?]]

* ''Series/UltramanMax'' had an episode titled "The Butterfly's Dream" in reference to this concept. It is ''[[BizarroEpisode completely insane]]'', and revolves around the worlds of a writer for ''[[BreakingTheFourthWall Ultraman Max]]'' and Kaito becoming disturbingly warped and their lives getting switched around due to the machinations of a mysterious monster-making lady and a protean egg-like entity Madeus. It's ''a lot'' weirder than it sounds.

* In one ''ComicBook/{{Batman}}'' story, Batman has been subjected to a nightmarish fantasy PsychologicalTormentZone by the Mad Hatter in an attempt to break him. After making his way through it and returning to reality, the Mad Hatter tries to taunt Batman with this trope and the fact that he can never be certain what is or isn't reality after what he's experienced. It's subverted, however; Batman, who is by this point rather ticked off and in no mood for any of this nonsense, simply notes that if this is true, and he is still trapped in his own fantasy, then this means that he no longer has to worry about holding back when beating the ever-loving shit out of the Mad Hatter in case he goes too far and kills him. After a few seconds preview of what this means for him, the Mad Hatter is quick to respond along the lines of "actually, forget what I just said about you maybe still being trapped in a dream, this actually ''is'' reality (''please don't hurt me'')".
