* ''Film/{{Inception}}'' has stray projections that get in the way of dreamsharing. There's Mal, a violent, nigh-unstoppable projection born from Dom's guilt, who takes form of his dead wife. She rages through the dreamscape, generally fucking everything up for the crew. There's also Dom's kids, who are less violent, but always faceless and whose appearance usually indicate danger.

* ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall'': Linkara [[spoiler: is fending off a mysterious entity and the people/creatures who either worship it or [[WellIntentionedExtremist fight against it]]. This entity turns out to be ''the MissingNo.'' from the original Pokemon Blue/Red, which apparently manifested in a parallel universe as an Outer God bent on absorbing all of reality]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/DistortedTravesty 3'' has the appropriately named [[EldritchAbomination Abomnination]], an [[HopelessBossFight indestructible]] pile of junk data that got locked into the Vault because of its sheer destructiveness. [[spoiler:It's also under the control of [[TheHeavy Hexor]] through a parasite implanted into it, and [[ICannotSelfTerminate has been secretly begging the player characters to kill it]] throughout the game]].

* One of the theories for why we dream is that the brain mistakenly interprets vital maintenance information as sensory stimulation while asleep, which would explain why dreams are often so weird. For example, the theory that dreams of flying/floating come about as the brain's best attempt to reconcile a dream that involves moving about in some way with the fact that it can't actually sense your arms or legs moving.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/WWFNoMercy'' has a glitch where, during the Hardcore Championship path in Championship Mode, you can fight [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JP582u6x1Ro "Data-2500"]], a bald, semi-naked, glitch wrestler who has The Rock's face, no in-game name (both his name plate and Attitude meter have no text on them), no music or titantron, no entrance motion (he will instead float around during the entrance while in his fighting stance), and whose attacks consist of nothing but knife edge chops that barely hurt the opponent at all. Using a GameShark code to access the extra CAW slot intended for [[DummiedOut the unused Game Boy Color championship path]], one can reveal Data-2500's character slot, but the character itself cannot be cloned.

* Used InUniverse in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' with the hidden character of Dr. W.D. Gaster. You have to mess around with the "fun" values in the game's coding to learn anything about him. [[spoiler:He was the royal scientist before Alphys, but he was scattered across space-time after falling into one of his inventions, with all memory of him gone. It's implied that he's ''aware'' to some degree and forced to watch the world functioning exactly the same without him.]]

** The TropeNamer is the glitch Franchise/{{Pokemon}} "[[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Missingno MISSINGNO.]]" from Generation I. A similarly glitchy creature has a name consisting of a quote mark, the letter M, and two [[TheUnpronounceable unpronounceable]] symbols. It has been {{Fan Nickname}}d "M-Block." or "'M" (pronounced "Apostrophe M"). The glitch is actually caused by the game trying to interpret your PlayerCharacter's name as random-encounter data.\\\
*** Missingno., its [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Glitch_Pokemon glitchy kin]], and the effects they have on the game make up an impressive amount of [[{{NightmareFuel/Pokemon}} Pokémon's Nightmare Fuel page]]. In fanfiction, they're often portrayed as a form of EldritchAbomination. [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall And not just in Pokémon, either...]]\\\
*** [[GoodBadBugs Missingno. also has the benefit of multiplying the sixth item in your bag to 128 or 255 in quantity]]. For competitive battling, this is quite the [[GameBreaker Game Breaker]]. Cloned Rare Candies + Cloned Technical Machines + Cloned Master Balls + Cloned Medicine = A team of six in the timeframe it would take to create one Pokémon without glitching.\\\

* ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2'' had a glitch where using debug mode to create a metric buttload of a certain object would cause Sonic's palette to be overwritten, turning him green, black, and one other color (which would often also be green or black). This miscolored Sonic, nicknamed "[[http://sonic.wikia.com/wiki/Ashura Ashura]]", is a surprisingly popular "character", making bizarrely frequent appearances in fan works.\\\
It's also been confirmed that "Ashura"'s color palette was the inspiration for [[ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog Scourge's]].

Despite common belief, Missingno. and M-Block are actually relatively harmless; it only causes minor graphical glitches [[note]]The graphical glitches are caused by looking at Missingno.'s stats and can be fixed by looking at the stats of anything that isn't a glitch Pokémon[[/note]] and corrupts the Hall of Fame data (and the Hall of Fame entries aren't required for playing the game anyway). There are much more dangerous glitch Pokémon, but they require significantly more effort to make appear. Basically, a good rule of thumb to follow, is that if a Glitch Pokemon requires more effort to see or catch, it'll cause more damage to your game. [[http://www.smogon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=78267 Apparently, Missingno. might actually be leftover data from removed Pokémon, while its unpronounceable kin are "garbage data" given form.]]

Glitches (or cheating) could add a "pirated [[UsefulNotes/MacOS Copland beta]]" or "copy of Windows NT" to your inventory. Per WordOfGod, these were placeholder strings for a DummiedOut weapon and its ammo. In Missingno. form, they were ammo for the (normally disposable) Enforcer gun.

** The SNES version of ''Ultimate MK3'' has one of these in Tournament mode. Do Random Select and the cursor may land on the Random icon. This creates a "character" that appears to be the leftover data from Sheeva after she was DummiedOut (sometimes called "Ghost Sheeva"). She's represented as only a few blood pixels (or sometimes nothing at all); some characters can't hit her at all, and she's capable of extremely damaging attacks. Oddly enough, you can perform Fatalities on her - she even still has her Babality sprite! - but it's very hard to do anything to her without crashing the game.
