* Happens to Chekov in ''Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome'' after he has a near-fatal fall and [=McCoy=], Kirk, and Gillian infiltrate the 20th-century hospital to administer 23rd-century care. Though he comes to in the operating room enough to give name and rank, he doesn't seem to regain full awareness until he's being frantically wheeled away from the pursuing guards and [[POVCam sees the fluorescent lights zoom by]].

* Happens twice in ''{{Claymore}}'', the first being when Raki travels through the desert trying to look for Clare only to pass out from exhaustion and lack of water, so Clare brings him to an inn at a nearby town. The second happens to Clare, when [[spoiler: she narrowly escapes being killed by Ophelia after Ilena saves her - but after she had an arm and a hand cut off - and she passes out from over-expending her energy to reattach her hand. Clare wakes up in Ilena's house in her secluded valley.]]

* In ''Fanfic/TheOneILoveIs'' this happens to Shinji so many times that, at one point, he has the feeling that he's seeing unfamiliar ceilings the whole time.
-->The bed was comfortable, but I barely managed to get any sleep. I had spent most of the night staring at this new unfamiliar ceiling.

Near the end of ''Literature/ABrothersPrice''. the book Jerin panics a little, his little. His memory of the last night is fuzzy since he almost drowned and got knocked about after going over that InevitableWaterfall, but soon he recognizes it as his cousin Dail's room.



** He gets really sick after he's been being systematically drugged and after he sort of witnessed his father's murder. He manages to get to his partner's apartment because his own place became too dangerous. When he wakes up alone [[MrFanservice in his underpants]] at Agent Scully's, he doesn't quite recollect where he is.
