** The comedic version shows up in the first movie, as Captain Jack Sparrow and Will wake Gibbs this way. Then Will dumps a second bucket of water on Gibbs, and says "That was for the smell." To clarify, Gibbs was sleeping in a pigpen. After hearing Will's reason, he just looks surprised and nods.
** Again in the third movie, when Jack finds Gibbs asleep on the end of the pier-a pier notably short a ship. Gibbs is also found clutching a stuffed animal, and takes a second to comprehend the followup question regarding the absence of the ''Pearl''.

* ''[[Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar The Black Gryphon]]'': At one point, an exhausted Winterhart pretends to be asleep so she doesn't have to have sex with Conn Levas. She thinks that if he pulls this, she won't be able to keep pretending because she knows perfectly well she would have woken. (He doesn't, because he doesn't want to use a soaked bedroll.)

This generally means that Bob has fallen into the hands of people who don't care much about his comfort, and that [[JackBauerInterrogationTechnique imminent interrogation]] of the not-very-nice sort is coming. (If Bob is in a cell, StrappedToAnOperatingTable, or tied to a chair, that's a pretty good sign that there's worse to come). But it can also be done by friendly characters -- to wake Bob quickly in an emergency, to attempt to jolt him back to his senses when he's panicking or delirious, or simply [[PlayedForLaughs for laughs]].

Almost always overlaps with WakingUpElsewhere.

Tends to overlap

A character gets a TapOnTheHead, or receives something else that knocks them out.

The next thing they (or we) know is that they're in a cell, either tied to a chair or lying on bed. Either way, they're rudely awoken by a bucket of cold water in the face.
