* In David Gunn's ''Literature/TheAux'' book Maximum Offense, Sven explains the "first second rule" to one of his auxiliaries: When you wake someone up and they hit you within the first second, it's uncontrolled and you shouldn't hold it against them. He's shown applying it equally with him and his subordinates.

* Overlapping with CatapultNightmare in the movie version of ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings''. Upon being woken from a nightmare, Aragorn pulls out his dagger, rather disturbing the messenger who woke him up.
-> Possibly justified in that it might very well be a trained reflex given he spent a long time out in places were orcs were far from the most dangerous beasties around. Drawing a weapon instinctively on waking suddenly could be the difference between life and death.

Added DiffLines:

* Portgas D. Ace, of ''Manga/OnePiece'', in his early years of being a pirate, was trapped on [[{{WorldsStrongestMan}} Whitebeard's]] ship before he joined them. During this time he tried multiple times to kill Whitebeard. The only time onscreen we see him (as it's implied he tried this more than once) attack Whitebeard in his sleep, he is violently thrown through the wall. This is a subversion though, since Whitebeard didn't even ''wake up''.

'''Leonard:''' *hugs Penny* That's my girl.
* Happened to Duncan once in ''{{Series/Highlander}}'' "Forgive Us Our Trespasses''. Duncan was having problems with an old enemy who saw him as a mass killer for things that happened during the Scottish rebellions in the 18th century. Duncan had nightmares and woke up struggling and punching until Amanda calmed him down.
* In one of the school episodes of ''Series/ElChavoDelOcho'', Chavo falls asleep in class. Profesor Jirafales obviously gets angry and yells to wake him up, and he immediately proceeds to punch out Quico, who is sitting next to him. His excuse is that he was dreaming that he was fighting with Quico.
