* In a nutshell, what [[spoiler:O'Brien]] explains to Winston at the end of ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'': that as long as the people believe it happened and there is no written evidence to the contrary, it actually happened, and screw the laws of nature if BB says so. In fact, the ideal citizen is one who can subconsciously alter his perception, memory, and experiences to meet whatever the Party says in order to make it true. Of course, the mind doesn't change any independent physical things, but that's not the point, since the Party doesn't really believe in those anyway, or at least doesn't care about them. Basically, they're saying that [[DoubleThink this trope applies even though it doesn't apply]].



* The mythical Tlön culture in "Literature/TlonUqbarOrbisTertius" is capable of this.

* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberianDawn'': in the final cutscene for the Nod campaign, a group of hackers are shown plugging themselves into machines that sends them into a virtual reality world, where they try to hack into GDI's ion cannon control system in order to gain control of their orbiting KillSat. Two of the hackers get zapped by the defenses in the virtual world, and are shown dying in the real world too, but the third one manages to succeed.

* This trope kicks in proportionally to pilot {{Synchronization}} in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', [[spoiler: as a reflection of pilots' desperation causing them to cry out for their mothers]]. Contrary to early reassurance from the [[UnroboticReveal woefully misinformed]] Misato that "it's not your real arm, snap out of it", pilots can and do feel their Eva's pain, as [[spoiler: Asuka]] would unfortunately [[EyeScream find out]] after [[HopeSpot achieving]] an unprecedented 400% synchronization ratio. She literally cries blood from her eye socket after [[spoiler: a Lance of Longinus replica impales her Eva through the face!]] As she and her Eva desperately reach out to GraspTheSun in one last futile display of will, [[spoiler: she and her Eva's arm is split clean in half]] by the first in a fatal spear barrage.

* In ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'', Virtual [=MMOs=] have pain inhibitors that prevent this from happening: if a player's pain inhibitor is turned down low or completely disabled, they can suffer actual bodily harm in the real world. However, the players will die for real if they die in the game (the helmet used to play the game will unleash a pulse of microwave radiation that will kill them).
