* In ''Videogame/PillarsOfEternity'', Zahua's personal quest "Secrets of the Tacan" is a vision quest inspired by [[MushroomSamba sharing Zahua's stash]] in a place that he believes has spiritual significance to him. He thinks the spirits of the place will show him the lost secrets of the Tacan that were lost when his mentor died.

* In ''{{Inception}}'', the [[DreamWeaver Dream Weavers]] create a custom dream for a business heir that includes telling him he's on a Vision Quest to come to term with his relationship with his late father. However, the whole thing is orchestrated including the epiphany at the ending that consists of a fake representation of his subconsciousness in the form of his father that tells him that his father never wanted him to be as greedy and power hungry as he had become and that after his death his monopoly should be split up. When the heir wakes, the dream will fade, but the faked epiphany remains, influencing all his future business decisions.
