* One of {{Comicbook/Venom}}'s early appearances -- as the symbiote rather than as just clothes, and before he was separated from {{Franchise/Spider-Man}} -- had him take Peter Parker out for a swing while Parker was completely asleep. Parker later wonders why he's so tired.
* In Comicbook/MarvelStarWars, Luke once goes into a [[AdventuresInComaland Force-induced coma]] where he has to fight a Vader-shaped manifestation of his own fear. Meanwhile, he gets captured, [[ShirtlessScene stripped]], and StrappedToAnOperatingTable. As he starts to win, his eyes open, he breaks free of the table, and he fights off a horde of guards while still fighting in the dream. He's rather surprised when he wakes up.
* In ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'', Calvin's parents often ''think'' he's been sleepwalking whenever the [[TitleDrop "homicidal psycho jungle cat"]] (that is, Hobbes) jumps him while he's going to get a drink of water.

* An episode of ''Series/TwoAndAHalfMen'' displays an unusually realistic example of sleepwalking. Alan wanders around at night doing things like vacuuming and baking, seeming for all the world like he's awake, apart from his speech consisting of absolute nonsense and the fact that he hasn't turned the vacuum on (he provides its sounds himself) and that he didn't bring a mixing bowl, resulting in his "baking" leaving a mess all over the dining table. Another episode reveals that Charlie routinely makes surprisingly good homemade chili while he's blacked-out drunk.

* {{Trope Maker|s}} for the "arms extended in front" pose is ''Film/TheCabinetOfDrCaligari''.
* FrankensteinsMonster and zombies are usually portrayed as walking like this, with hands outstretched. While they're not ''technically'' asleep, they are resurrected dead -- death often being compared metaphorically to a permanent sleep. In the original Universal film series Frankenstein's Monster only did this after an incompatible brain transplant, making him blind. And arguably, making him no longer the same character. It was then [[Creator/BelaLugosi Ygor]]'s brain in the monster's body. Most parodies of the Universal Frankenstein use this pose though, without bothering with the reason ''why''.
* In ''Film/{{Phenomena}}'', main character Jennifer is a sleepwalker, and the plot of the movie kicks off when she witnesses a murder while sleepwalking. Notably, during her second sleepwalking episode, she actually ''realises'' that she's sleepwalking and tries to snap herself out of it. She fails, but then [[spoiler:she hears a gunshot and wakes up.]]
* One of the side effects of an experimental antidepressant called Ablixa in ''Film/SideEffects'' is sleepwalking. Emily, who has tried many other antidepressants to no avail, is determined to keep taking it despite sleepwalking, during which she prepares food for three people... even though it's just her and her husband at the apartment. Then, one night, [[spoiler:she stabs her husband during one such episode]]. In the end, her psychiatrist finds out that [[spoiler:this was all a scheme by Emily and her former psychiatrist to cause the stocks of the manufacturer of the drug to plummet and cash in on the knowledge; killing her husband, whom she secretly hated, was a bonus; her new psychiatrist's ruined career was just collateral damage]]. Fortunately, the psychiatrist [[spoiler:ends up proving himself a MagnificentBastard, and the women end up paying for their crimes]].
* In ''Film/SecondhandLions'', Hub is a sleepwalker who does weapons drills by the lake at night.
