Especially prevalent in TheNineties, this is when a character goes on a spiritual [[JourneyToFindOneself journey of self-discovery]]. The character is forced to confront his or her subconscious or seek guidance from his or her {{Spirit Advisor}}s in the form of some kind of pseudo-DreamSequence, possibly AdventuresInComaland. At times it is debatable whether the events actually take place or not. While on this journey the character may meet animal guides, dead people, ancestors, shamans, be forced to engage in some type of physical or mental trial, and will most likely experience a moment of revelation about him- or herself which leads to making an important life decision.

* On ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'', John Redcorn takes Joseph on a Native American vision quest as a rite of passage. Joseph's father Dale tags along just for the hell of it. Joseph does not get any visions, but Dale does. He sees his wife having sex with a man in an elaborate Native American headdress, and then flashes forward to the day of Joseph's birth, where Joseph is wearing the exact same headdress. Joseph, of course, is a very obvious ChocolateBaby whose actual father is John Redcorn, and both the audience and characters (except for Dale and Joseph himself) are well aware of this. You'd think this would be the moment Dale finally realizes that his wife has been unfaithful to him, but instead [[WhatAnIdiot he comes to the conclusion that he must be Native American himself]].

* The Waterfall of Truth in ''{{Naruto}}'' brings out a person's darker emotions and forces them to confront their own insecurities. It acts as a ThresholdGuardian for jinchurikis seeking to master their bijuu; without first conquering their own dark side, they're vulnerable to the beast.
