->''"[[DefensiveWhat What?!]] [[YouBastard Oh yeah, like I'm the only one thinking it.]]"''
-->-- '''Duke Devlin''', ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries''

This is a kissing trope most common in anime and manga; the setting is a bedroom, or simply a place to rest, and two characters, one often harboring unrequited feelings for the other.

The premise is that one character is ''unconscious'', whether previously knocked out, feverish, {{co|nvenientComa}}matose, in a drunken stupor, or simply asleep; the other falls for '[[BeautifulDreamer their attractive sleeping face]]', and unable to resist, leans in to lock lips...

This situation will progress differently depending on the genre of the series, and the status of the characters. They may or may not pull it off, resulting in an IndirectKiss, FirstKiss, etc., or they may be interrupted by [[MomentKiller another character bursting in]], usually including a guilty start.

It is not unknown for the other person to be feigning sleep when they realize that the character might kiss them.

Frequently used in {{shojo}} series and {{shonen}} love comedies, where the girl's vulnerability seems irresistible to the male character. This trope is fairly gender-equitable, though, as girls are also prone to this urge. In RealLife, it is known as somnophilia.

SisterTrope to ConverseWithTheUnconscious.

Contrast KissOfLife, which is often mistaken for this. One common reason why OrderliesAreCreeps in fiction is that they're often portrayed as being into this.

* Implied to be imminent for a ''very'' drunk teenager who's last seen stumbling up the stairs from a party, with a drunken horny-looking guy in pursuit, from an anti-drinking [=PSA=].

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''Anime/BloodPlus'': [[spoiler:A gender-inverted example. Near the end of episode 43, Julia kisses an unconscious David in the hospital after he [[TakingTheBullet takes the bullet]] for her.]]
* ''HotGimmick'': On one occasion, Hatsumi passes out drunk next to Ryoki. He takes this as an invitation to start groping and stripping her.
* In ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', Tuxedo Mask finds a drunken, passed out Usagi (who took booze by mistake while infiltrating a ball). Knowing exactly what to do with a [[TheDrunkenSailor Drunken Sailor]], he kisses her. A later episode in the first [[Anime/SailorMoon anime]] seems to acknowledge it as well when Usagi asks Mamoru if he remembers their first kiss. Mamoru suddenly acts very awkward and pretends he can't remember.
* ''TowerOfGod'': Lurker fondles Yeon's breast while she rendered will-less by a PuppeteerParasite.
* ''[[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya]]'':
** Parodied during the student film episode "The Adventures of Asahina Mikuru". The star is Mikuru as the battle waitress from the future, who faints at one point and is carried to the home of Itsuki Koizumi, her in-movie love-interest. After putting her to bed, he silently deliberates over this, and gets very close to kissing her. She is acting, though, and uncomfortably aware of it. He is belatedly interrupted by Yuki Nagato's character, although there was a good chance of our completely disgruntled cameraman (and in-series narrator) Kyon disrupting the scene. And that's not the only creepy part... As Kyon points out, after she is knocked unconscious, Koizumi took her to his house instead of calling an ambulance, undressed her, bathed her, and then redressed her before trying to kiss her.
** In the novels and the rerun added episodes, this scene is slightly less humorous: Tsuruya and Haruhi spiked Mikuru's drink in order to 'improve her acting', which Kyon realizes from Mikuru's lack of resistance; he refuses to keep filming, and it's the only scene in the series where he becomes seriously angry with Haruhi, to the point of almost [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu socking her in the face]] without realizing it before Koizumi stops him.
** Or, in the words of Yuki Nagato (sort of) herself: "You weren't going to kiss her, were you? 'Cuz she's unconscious. That would be really weird."
** Mikuru actually invokes this trope ''on herself'' in Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody. After she and Kyon travel back to [[ArcWords three years ago]], she falls unconscious. Her own future self appears and tells Kyon what to do. As a reward she says that he can kiss her (still unconscious) younger self if he wants to. I'm sure a lawyer, a philosopher, and a quantum physicist could have great fun getting drunk and discussing the ethical implications of this scenario.
* ''LightNovel/GoshuushouSamaNinomiyaKun'':
** Shungo nearly does this to Reika, thinking it necessary to revive her. When she wakes up in his arms minutes later: ''"What are you doing, Ninomiya Shungo?! Don't tell me you've been doing ThisAndThat while I was unconscious? ...Actually, do it while I can remember!"''
** She herself attempts to do this to Shungo, and possibly other things. Except he defends himself against her ''while he's sleeping''.
* ''TokyoMewMew'': Happens more than once, and always with an [[IntimateHealing explanation]]. However, even without said explanations, they're treated as some of the most romantic moments in the entire series.
* In ''BladeOfTheImmortal'', Rin is harboring a reverse BodyguardCrush for her bodyguard Manji, so when he passes out after a particularly exhausting adventure she takes the opportunity to plant one of these on him.
* ''MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch''
* Subverted in ''Manga/{{Naruto}} Shippuden'' 68 as Fuka gave Naruto a "Kiss of Death" while he was unconscious. Then he woke up and was observing that blood in her hair was still there and then Naruto pulled her hair later which lead to her defeat.
* ''[[{{Slayers}} Slayers Next]]'': Zelgadis, due to being 1/3rd Golem (he's also 1/3rd Demon and 1/3rd Human) is forced to become a ship's 'anchor' in order for Lina to catch a lake dragon. This, however, does not go very well the first few times, and Zelgadis ends up unconscious and seemingly drowned. However, at Amelia's suggestion of administering CPR, we see that Zelgadis is in fact, awake, or had just awakened, due to him blushing at the scenario of Amelia planting her lips on his, even if it's to save his life...however, when he cracks his eyes open, instead of Amelia, it's the elderly Chef who is about to administer the 'kiss of life', and he lays one right on poor Zelgadis.
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'':
** Shinji deliberates on kissing Asuka when she sleepwalks into his bed. He eventually changes his mind when she calls out for her mother. Later she accused him of actually doing it, and when he implied he had indeed kissed her, she got shocked and flustered. She was just joking.
** Reversed (and a common cry by the audience) in ''End of Evangelion'' when Shinji doesn't kiss her but instead [[spoiler: [[ADateWithRosiePalms masturbates]] over Asuka's comatose body. Even he points out that he is "fucked up" afterwards.]] She [[spoiler: (or a hallucination of her)]] later states she knows what he did, and sneers at Shinji for doing so.
* In ''Anime/{{Mai-HiME}}'', Shizuru gives in to her [[SchoolgirlLesbians repressed feelings for Natsuki]] and kisses her while she sleeps off her injuries. A few seconds later, [[spoiler:Haruka and Yukino]] pop out from the nearby bushes to call her out for it. There are silhouette flashbacks of Shizuru undressing, with the implication is that she did a bit more than kissing, but it's unclear whether that was a flashback or a visualization of the worst possible case. The writers have [[ShrugOfGod refused to elaborate.]]
* ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'': Haqua comes close to this after putting an exhausted Keima to bed on a couch. She ultimately doesn't go through with it.
* ''MarmaladeBoy'' subverts this a bit. Miki is actually ''not'' unconscious when Yuu kisses her in the infirmary; she actually ''pretended'' to be unconscious to not have her DeadpanSnarker of a future step-sibling asking anything uncomfortable or mocking her for getting a basketball to the face in PE class. It didn't work, of course. Subverted further still when later on Yuu confesses that he knew she wasn't really unconscious.
* ''LoveHina'' did all the examples; Naru was angry Keitaro tried it, later became angry he ''didn't'' try it, then almost did it herself. The UnwantedHarem provide commentary.
* Occurred in one episode of the second ''{{Patlabor}}'' {{OVA}} in a rather touching scene with Captains Gotoh and Nagumo sharing a motel room.
* The ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' manga uses this a fair number of times, mostly at the expense of [[AdorablyPrecociousChild poor little Negi]].
** Twice straight, as a person considers or attempts making a Pactio with him (which involves kissing), and a couple of inversions, in which a person gets kissed by the ''sleeper''.
** Chapter 253 plays it straight with Natsumi about debating about whether to kiss a sleeping Kotaro. She [[spoiler: actually tries to do it, but gets interrupted by Haruna.]]
** And of course, in 286 Chamo tries egging on ''four'' different girls to do it at once, two of whom have a crush on Negi, while in front of Chisame. [[BrickJoke But an innocent Yuuna claims getting a pactio from him while he's asleep would be boring and cowardly.]]
* Played for laughs in the ''Anime/ExcelSaga'' intro, when Watanabe almost does this to [[IllGirl Hyatt]], but she slams him into a wall.
* In ''KannazukiNoMiko'' Chikane kisses an unconscious Himeko as a "birthday gift". Of course Himeko fades into conciousness just when this occurs, but fades back out more or less right away.
* ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'':
** Subverted beautifully by the anime: Nagi attempts to have her (presumably) FirstKiss with Hayate while he's asleep. Naturally, he suddenly opens his eyes at the last moment and completely [[SelectiveObliviousness misinterprets the situation]]. Cue [[RelaxOVision violent off screen pummeling]] by [[{{Tsundere}} irate Nagi]].
** In Ch. 360 of the manga, Hayate himself appears to be doing this to Hinagiku after she falls asleep in his room. Thankfully it wasn't Nagi who walked in so he was probably able to explain that he was simply moving her someplace more appropriate for her to sleep.
* ''AngelSanctuary'': Setsuna kisses Sara in her sleep. It's bonus points, as they happen to be [[BrotherSisterIncest blood siblings]]. ''And'' their mother catches him in the act. This is a subversion, in that Sara was really awake but pretended to be asleep because she wanted Setsuna to kiss her.
* ''YuYuHakusho'':
** In the first arc, during the time in which Yuusuke was technically dead (although his inert body was given pseudo-life in order to preserve it), Keiko has to kiss him in order to revive him in a kind of spiritual CPR.
** Before that, Keiko almost kisses his unconscious body while he invisibly and fervently protests, but is interrupted by an announcement from the Neighborhood Watch Committee that kicks her back to her senses.
--> [[YuYuHakushoAbridged Attention, everyone! This is the Neighborhood Watch Committee, reminding everyone that necrophilia is still illegal! Thank you, and have a pleasant day!]]
* ''Manga/AiYoriAoshi'':
** Tina and Kaoru are forced to spend a night in a love hotel (chaste, since they're [[JustFriends only friends]]), on account of rain and having missed the homebound trains. While Kaoru is asleep, Tina silently debates with herself about kissing him. Judging from her thoughts the next day, she went through with it several times (and seemed alternately happy, but regretful at taking advantage of him). Kaoru didn't notice.
** Tina and Aoi have each kissed a sleeping Kaoru on several occasions, starting [[ToyShip when Aoi and Kaoru were toddlers]]. Aoi usually told Kaoru about it afterward. Tina, [[CannotSpitItOut for whatever reason]], didn't.
** Also, those {{Bedmate Reveal}}s indicate that the girls living in the manor have no qualms about entering Kaoru's room, climbing into his bed, and cuddling up with him - all while he's fast asleep.
* When Souichi in ''TheTyrantFallsInLove'' becomes so drunk that he forgets to lock the door to his bedroom before going to sleep, Morinaga decides that this is the perfect opportunity to steal a few kisses from him. Souichi's murmuring of Morinaga's name in his sleep only stimulates Morinaga into performing increasingly more explicit actions...until Souichi wakes up. Cue ArmorPiercingSlap.
* In the manga ''HappyHustleHigh'' Yasuaki kisses Hanabi when she's passed out drunk, thinking "She looks so innocent... guess she feels safe around me. Her mistake!" She actually told him she loved him while sleeptalking. On the other hand, the 'waking up naked under the same blanket' bit was just a prank played on them by a friend who didn't approve of them skipping school to play video games.
* In ''Manga/{{FAKE}}'', Dee insists on keeping an eye on Ryo when the latter falls ill. When Dee finds that Ryo has fallen asleep, he takes a moment to thank the Lord for this opportunity, and leans in. Ryo wakes up when their lips meet (Dee has his eyes closed, so he doesn't realize that Ryo awoke), is ticked off at first, but then decides that being kissed by Dee isn't so bad after all, and even closes his eyes again.
* Ayane in ''Anime/GateKeepers21'' is kissed [[ConvenientComa while comatose]] by BigBad StalkerWithACrush Yuurei Shoujo, while the former's boss and partner watch helplessly. Made more disturbing by the fact that, as her name implies, she was a ghost, and at the same time, appeared much younger than the person she was molesting.
* Gender-flipped in ''MazingerZ''. Kouji Kabuto is seriously injured after he has an actually ''serious'' fight with his partner Sayaka (they usually have SlapSlapKiss fights, but this one gets worse) and she refuses to back him up in battle. A grief-stricken Sayaka takes care of him in the hospital and later kisses him in his comatose sleep.
** Played straight in the manga version penned by GosakuOta, when [[spoiler:Boss]] kissed an unconscious Sayaka before leaving for battle, thinking he was going to die.
* After their second kiss in ''FruitsBasket'', [[spoiler:Kyo admits to Tohru that he [[FirstKiss first kissed]] her while she was unconscious]]. To be fair, [[spoiler:Tohru actually ''did'' regain consciousness and say some comforting words to him when she noticed he was crying. He simply didn't realize that she'd once again fainted before he kissed her]].
* Koizumi in ''LovelyComplex'' falls asleep while attempting to memorize a menu for her waiting job. Completely taken in by her less-than-graceful face, Kohori can't help but lean in for a kiss. Doesn't help that Otani [[NotWhatItLooksLike just so happens]] to catch him in the act, either.
* BoysLove example: Narrowly averted in the beginning of ''OkaneGaNai'', Kanou almost kisses Ayase, who is unconscious and drugged at the time. After deciding against it he ends up opting for forcing himself on Ayase as a way to express his affection.
* In ''SchoolRumble'', in a flashback, [[spoiler: Harima almost does this to Tenma after he rescues her from some lecherous thugs, but he can't quite muster the courage. However, she does wake up while he's hovering over her, leading her to assume the worst, smack him, and leave with a very obligatory "Thank you." This results in Harima growing a beard and wearing sunglasses so that she won't recognize him]], thus explaining his current appearance.
* In ''ChronoCrusade'', Chrono comes down with a fever, and Rosette is told by a FortuneTeller [[IntimateHealing that the way to cure a fever is to kiss the ill person]]. Rosette finally gets the courage to try it on Chrono while he's sleeping.
* Near the end of MacrossFrontier, Luca kisses the comatose Nanase before leaving to fight the final battle. [[spoiler: He gets back just in time to see her wake up.]]
* ''AxisPowersHetalia'' has England being almost [[BlackComedyRape molested]] by his SitcomArchEnemy France, when he's bedridden because of a ''really'' bad cold. However, America walks on them and France has to back off.
** Also Holy Roman Empire pretends to be asleep in an attempt to get Chibitalia to kiss him to wake him up... Chibitalia just jumps on him instead.
* Subverted in ''Manga/DetectiveConan''. [[spoiler:Takagi looked like he was passed out during file 637, a bit before Sato kissed him. He was perfectly conscious afterward. The Shonen Tantei Dan had used the excuse that Takagi had just taken medication before, so Sato and Takagi actually got to kiss, instead of the usual issue where they almost kiss, but always fail.]]
* In the {{manhwa}} ''ThreadsOfTime'', [[AxCrazy Sali Tayi]] doesn't really kiss the coma-induced Sa-Lum so much as he just out-and-out rapes her. Even his own soldiers pretty much have a "Dude, she's like, in a coma!" moment. And he wonders why [[{{Tsundere}} Atan Hadas]] doesn't like him...
* In ''Manga/HidamariSketch'', [[LovableSexManiac Yoshinoya-sensei]] can be stopped just ''barely'' before she kisses Hiro, who is unconscious after she severely bumped her head. Of course, given [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship Sae]] is present...
* Happens in ''VisualNovel/WhiteAlbum'' when Touya falls asleep during his tutoring gig. His student almost kisses him when he's asleep (in a cute little attendance to detail she actually pulls back her pigtails to keep them from brushing his face).
* In ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'', Kaname [[AlmostKiss almost kisses Sousuke]] after he fell asleep when she finished cutting his hair. She restrains herself, however, because she felt embarrassed that she would want to take advantage of him in his sleep. So instead, she stops herself by [[{{Tsundere}} dunking his head in water]].
** Tessa, on the other hand, has no qualms about trying to take advantage of Sousuke while he's sleeping. The first time, she actually ''does'' manage to sneak into his bed. The second time, however, she's shown to quietly try to sneak to him, only to be caught by Mao (who proceeds to handcuff herself to her, so as to make sure she doesn't try anything funny with Sousuke while he's unconscious).
** Tessa also tries to kiss Sousuke in ''Anime/FullMetalPanicFumoffu'' when he was dragged unconscious out of the school pool after belly-flopping in to try and save her. She loudly and dramatically declares that he needs CPR and as she leans in to put her mouth to his, Kaname pulls her back by the hair and angrily points out that he doesn't need it.
** While in ''The Second Raid'' OVA ("The Battlegroup Commander's Sort of Boring Day") Mao is seen [[LesYay groping Tessa's breasts]] after she'd passed out from drinking too much. [[GirlOnGirlIsHot Imagine for a moment]] [[DoubleStandard if this were Kurz instead of Mao...]]
* In ''GirlFriends'', Mari first kisses Akko after Akko unexpectedly falls asleep.
** This happens again near the end of the series.
* Lampshaded and averted in ''EurekaSeven'': Talho jokingly accused Renton of wanting to "do lewd things" to the sleeping Eureka.
* In ''RozenMaiden'', [[spoiler:Shinku]] kisses Jun on the cheek before [[spoiler:leaving to battle Suigintou]].
* In ''HanaKimi'', [[spoiler:after Sano [[RescueRomance rescues]] Mizuki from [[AttemptedRape being raped]], they fall off a cliff and Mizuki sprains her ankle. Later, she develops a bad fever and passes out. Sano kisses her while she's unconscious and takes care of her until help arrives.]]
* In ''Manga/StrawberryMarshmallow'', when Miu convinces the group to dress up and sneak into Matsuri's house on Christmas Eve to "preserve her innocence", Nobue finds Matsuri's sleeping face irresistible ands moves in for a kiss, only to be slapped out of it by Chika.
* In ''Anime/PleaseTeacher'', it took until episode 7 for the main couple to have a conscious kiss. Their technical kiss was in episode 4, but given Kei's condition of routinely falling comatose, well...
** Mizuho kisses Kei for the first time while he's in a standstill and therefore unconscious.
* In ''OnegaiTwins'', both girls kissed the main character while he was asleep after they both admitted to each other that they both loved him. This was during the time before they figured out which one was his twin.
* In ''DNAngel'' (manga only) Dark tries kissing Risa who's in bed with a fever only to get caught by Riku. To be fair he was probably using [[IntimateHealing healing magic]].
* Hayate from the ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' Sound Stages shamelessly [[SkinshipGrope takes advantage of Signum's breasts]] while the latter is asleep, to save Signum from being embarrassed if she asked her.
* Happens in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', when Orihime visits a sleeping Ichigo [[spoiler: before departing to Hueco Mundo.]] She confesses her feelings, [[AlmostKiss leans in to kiss him]], but in the end is unable to do it.
* Kozue in ''RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' leans over Miki (who has fallen asleep at the piano) and kisses him, presumably on the side of his face due to his position. She's interrupted by Anthy. Bonus: later in the episode, she tries to kiss a conscious Miki, who jumps back repulsed. Maybe because, you know, [[TwinCest they're twins]].
* Ironically, [[YamatoNadeshiko Sango]] from ''{{Inuyasha}}'' does this to her dying fiancé [[HandsomeLech Miroku]]. While he lies unconscious after being poisoned and his [[{{Curse}} Wind Tunnel]] threatens to kill him, a grief-stricken Sango kisses him and asks him not to die before leaving to fight the BigBad since [[CurseEscapeClause killing him]] is the only way to save Miroku's life.
* One of the first things to [[AppleOfDiscord drive a wedge into the]] ''LitchiHikariClub'' is not simply the fact that Dafu intends to free their captive Kanon, but the addition of ''masturbating over her comatose body''.
* Female on male version in ''NodameCantabile'' Finale. Tanya steals a kiss from Kuroki while he's sleeping.
* A near female to male version happens in '' VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}''. During the One year before story, Kyou spots Tomoya taking a nap, and before she does anything, Sunohara catches her and immediately realizes what she's thinking. When he calls Kyou out on it, well [[ButtMonkey poor Sunohara]].
* ''GunslingerGirl'' (manga). Hilshire is shot during an operation and his cyborg Triela has to remove the bullet. Triela has just discovered the details of her [[SnuffFilm tragic past]]; realising she's a MoralityChain to her handler Triela decides to walk out on Hilshire after he passes out from the shock. She's unable to do so, rushing back inside the room and kissing Hilshire whilst making an AnguishedDeclarationOfLove.
* ''Manga/DengekiDaisy'': Kurosaki plants one of the on-the-cheek variety on Teru while she's in bed ill. She's only half unconcious, but she's woozy and feverish enough to not recognize him, and it's implied she may have fallen asleep again anyway right after she finishes speaking to him and before he kisses her.
* In ''{{Fractale}}'', [[spoiler:Phryne]] kisses Clain in his sleep in Episode 9... right before she leaves to return to the temple in an attempt to stop the conflict between the temple and Lost Millennium.
* The second episode of ''[[Manga/AhMyGoddess Oh My Goddess!]]'''s OVA has Keiichi vehemently trying to [[FightingFromTheInside fight one of Urd's love potions]] when it makes him fall in love with [[TheRival Sayoko]], instead of [[MagicalGirlfriend Belldandy]]. He passes out in a crag by the beach, and Belldandy [[KissOfLife manages to wake him up with a kiss]].
* Played for {{Squick}} in ''{{Berserk}}'' when [[spoiler: the King of Midland begins molesting his daughter, Princess Charlotte, as she lay sleeping. He then proceeds to undress and tries to rape her. She woke up to this part, fought him off, and ran away from home.]]
** When Guts saves Casca from a nasty fall: as she lays unconscious in their makeshift shelter, he briefly thinks about nailing her and blames himself for it right after. He does, however, gently brush her bangs, another early implication that Guts found Casca physically attractive despite their strained relationship.
** Guts' [[spoiler:NearRapeExperience involving Casca]] during the Millennium Falcon arc takes this form when he succumbs to his EnemyWithin.
* In one episode of ''{{Tokko}}'', Sakura kisses an unconcious Ranmaru before joining him in his BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind.
* Happens more than once in ''Anime/MawaruPenguindrum''. First [[BrotherSisterIncest Kaba kisses Himari on the lips]] when she's asleep after having been revived. Later, [[spoiler: Shoma ends up taking Ringo's first kiss while giving her CPR.]] And later it's used [[PlayedForDrama quite more darkly]] when [[spoiler: Ringo drugs and almost rapes Tabuki to have him impregnate her, with Shoma barely managing to stop her.]]
* In one chapter of ''RosarioToVampire'', Kurumu, through a complicated set of circumstances, ends up with an unconscious Tsukune on her bed. She considers stealing a kiss from him, but her conscience keeps her from doing so.
* ''RanmaOneHalf'': When Ranma gets knocked unconcious by poisonous plants, Shampoo sees this as an opportunity to try and steal a kiss. Akane doesn't approve.
** Also, Kodachi. She has tried to kiss [[AttemptedRape (and do more than kiss)]] him while he's unconcious and while he's immobile. All instances due to paralysis powder or some other potion of hers.
** Kuno once attempted to kiss Akane while she was unconcious and kiss [[AttractiveBentGender "the pig-tailed girl"]] after she passed out.
* In the second light novel of ''ZeroNoTsukaima'', Saito started undressing Louise while she was asleep so he could have sex with her.
* Both Tomoe and Mizuki kiss Nanami while she is unconscious in ''Manga/KamisamaKiss'' and both do it [[AMagicContractComesWithAKiss for the same reason]] on top of that.
* Applies in ''Manga/ACruelGodReigns'' when Jeremy accompanies Pansy to a party where he is heavily drugged, carried into a room, and gang raped. Although not completely unconscious and he ingested the drugs of his own will, he cannot stand and Ian and Savage had to physically carry him to Savage's car.
* Sugou in ''SwordArtOnline'' starts touching Asuna's face while she's still hooked up to life support. Kirigaya (Kirito) gets noticeably upset. For added creep factor, he explains that he has the right to do it, because his company is keeping her alive.
* ''Manga/SakuraTrick'': Haruka is asleep at her desk, so Yuu decides to kiss her pretty much everywhere she can reach (which ''doesn't'' include the mouth). Though, these two [[OncePerEpisode kiss often enough already]].

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* In the Creator/AlanMoore ''{{Miracleman}}'', Dr. Gargunza repeatedly ''rapes'' the unconscious form of Miraclewoman. Later, she wakes up thinking it's utterly laughable just how petty a man Gargunza was.
* In the ''ComicBook/{{Buffy|the Vampire Slayer}}'' season 8 comics, Buffy is put into a magical sleep that she can only be roused from by the [[TrueLovesKiss kiss of true love.]] She and the kisser [[spoiler:(Satsu)]] later end up having a one-night-stand... And then another one.
* In ''CableAndDeadpool'' #12 Deadpool and The Fixer enter Cable's house and find that the members of the mercenary team Six Pack are there, standing like statues and trapped in a telepathic conference with Cable. Fixer proposes taking advantage of the situation by looking down Domino's shirt, but Deadpool wonders why he would bother when there are fake images of her on the internet. Fixer than wonders which of them is more pathetic, himself for wanting to grope an unconscious woman, or Deadpool for not wanting to. Deadpool gleefully claims it's himself.
* A rare male example: ComicBook/TomStrong gets this done to him ''twice'', by a female Nazi super soldier and a hive queen of moon bat creatures. Both times, a child is produced, though only the son of the former ever reappears.
* Sara Pezzini from the ''Comicbook/{{Witchblade}}'' comics was knocked up by ''ComicBook/TheDarkness''' Jackie Estacado while in a coma. Then again, he wasn't in control of his body either..
* Rose Walker is the result of this in ''ComicBook/TheSandman'' series. The imprisonment of Dream causes several people across the world to fall asleep indefinitely. One of these is a woman who is a Vortex (like a Black Hole of dreams). Dream's sibling Desire fathers a daughter by this unconscious Vortex, and ''her'' daughter takes her Grandmother's place as the new Vortex.
* This was an actual story arc in the beginning stages of Creator/GrantMorrison's run on ''Comicbook/DoomPatrol''. A villain named Red Jack, who may or may not be both {{God}} and JackTheRipper, kidnapped comatose Rhea Jones and planned to marry her.
-->'''Robotman''': What? This is insane! You can't marry her. She... she's in a coma, for God's sake!
-->'''Red Jack''': Admittedly, her conversation ''is'' a little dull. But then again, love conquers all.
* One comic in the ''MarvelMangaverse'' series had Black Cat steal a kiss from an unconscious Spider-Woman (who, in this universe, was ''Mary Jane''). Spider-Man catches them... and can only go "Woah."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fairy Tales]]
* In the fairy tale "Literature/BriarRose" (the Creator/BrothersGrimm version of "Literature/SleepingBeauty"), the prince awakens Briar Rose from her magical sleep with a kiss. It does ''not'' happen in Perrault's "Sleeping Beauty", where the princess just wakes by herself when the prince enters her chamber.
* In Giambattista Basile's "Literature/SunMoonAndTalia", the direct predecessor to "Sleeping Beauty", the enchanted princess Talia is raped and impregnated in her sleep, and finally awakened by one of her newborn twin babies suckling at her thumb and removing the magic splinter. Think about this the next time you watch ''Disney/SleepingBeauty''.

[[folder:Fan Fic]]
* In this ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'' [[http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=medium&illust_id=13122264 fancomic]], Japan takes advantage of a sedated China (if you want to view it, you need to log on to Pixiv and enable R-18 images)
** In a less disturbing example, [[http://shibbyone.livejournal.com/14474.html more]] [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6338737/1/even_a_whisper than]] [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6777403/2/Hetalia_Drabble_Dump one]] [[http://measuringlife.livejournal.com/596684.html fanfic]] has Japan kissing a {{sleep|yhead}}ing [[BeautifulDreamer Greece]] and Greece either turning out to have been awake the whole time or waking up halfway through and enthusiastically reciprocating the kiss.
* In [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6921984/8/Win_You_Over a]] ''Series/{{Glee}}'' fanfic, there is a case of a lesbian comatose kiss. There is also a first declaration of love involved.
* Rumors fly around the ''Music/{{Gorillaz}}'' SlashFic writers about [[{{Squick}} what could have happened during the year 2D was in a coma]]. Murdoc probably ''is'' canonically enough of an outright bastard to at least consider it.
* In [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2237049/1/Erik_The_Vampire_Hunter this]] totally EPIC AlternateUniverse ''Literature/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'' fic, Erik is in the hospital, unconscious. Christine feels guilty that he was injured protecting her, so she kisses him, thinking he'll never know. When he wakes up, he tastes something sweet and cherry-flavored on his lips. He later finds out what kind of lip gloss Christine wears...
* In ''FanFic/TheSecondTry'', a Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion PeggySue fanfic, after [[spoiler:the defeat of the Seventeeth Angel]], Shinji visits a sleeping Asuka in the hospital, and unlike [[{{Squick}} what he did in the original timeline]], he kisses her. Asuka wakes up during the kiss and jokingly tells maybe he should have tried that the last time instead.
* Happens in the extremely popular ''Film/StarTrek'' fanfic "Atlas", a rare non-squicky example of this trope.
* In the ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' fanfic ''FanFic/MemoriesBornOfFire'', Christine Chapel takes advantage of Spock being asleep to sneak a kiss on the cheek, explaining to Kirk that she may never have the chance to do it again.
* In more than a couple of ''Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses'' KinkMeme [[http://taekarado.livejournal.com/21601.html?thread=576097#t576097 fi]][[http://taekarado.livejournal.com/21601.html?thread=1227873#t1227873 lls]], WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick chloroforms WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic so she can have a little fun with him.
* At one point during ''[[FanFic/PoniesOfOlympus Atlas Strongest Tournament]]'', Rarity's [[TheRival rival]] Ran Biao "accidentally" knocks Spike out during weight training (by making him carry [[CompanionCube Tom]]), and tries to "use CPR" on him. Rarity shows up just in time to stop her and kick her ass.

[[folder:Film]]
* Perhaps the earliest instance of this in film is in Erich von Stroheim's ''Film/{{Greed}}'' (1924), after [=McTeague=] (a dentist) puts Trina under the Gas, his rough beastial nature gets the better of him and he Frenches her while she's out. It's in the original novel (''McTeague'', by Frank Norris, 1899) too.
* ''Film/HorribleBosses'' has a situation where a female dentist molests her employee while he's unconscious, making it look like he's having an affair, and uses the photos to blackmail him. [[spoiler: In an example of LaserGuidedKarma, at the end of the movie he sets up a sting with some friends, getting footage of her attempted molestation of a patient, in order to blackmail ''her'' into backing off.]]
* Western example: ''KevinAndPerryGoLarge''.
* In ''Film/KillBill'', the Bride wakes up from her four-year coma and discovers that a hospital orderly has been pimping her unconscious body out to customers. [[RapeAndRevenge Naturally, the orderly and his latest "customer" become her first victims]].
* In ''Film/TheFifthElement'', Korben kisses an unconscious Leeloo, who interrupts it by putting a gun to his temple. Apparently, she's not that much like in a coma. "Okay, okay, that was a mistake..."
-->"What does 'ecto gammet' mean?"\\
"Uh- 'never without my permission!'"
* Averted in ''Film/TheHoliday'': Amanda wakes up to a hangover and Graham making her breakfast, and asks if anything happened last night. Graham says no, and Amanda wonders why, thinking she might have made a fool of herself. Graham tells her, "Call me old-fashioned, but one does not have sex with women who are unconscious."
* A particularly creepy example occurs in ''{{Terminator 2}}'', when an asylum guard licks Sarah Conner's face while he thinks she is catatonic.
** Supplemental material strongly implies that this was a regular occurrence.
* The Spanish-language film ''Hable con ella (TalkToHer)'' involves this. A man whose girlfriend was recently injured and fell into a coma meets a male nurse who works at the clinic whose own girlfriend is also in a coma. [[spoiler:The nurse never actually met her before her injury - he's a StalkerWithACrush, and things get {{Squick}}y.]]
* ''Film/DeadMenDontWearPlaid''. "Your breasts shifted out of whack when you fainted. I was adjusting them."
* Not a kiss, per se, but in ''TheBoondockSaints'', Rocco can't resist the opportunity to cop a feel of the breast of a stripper who fainted when the brothers break into a private dance room to kill a sleazy mid-level crime lord (played by Ron Jeremy, no less).
-->'''Connor:''' What the fuck are you doing?!
-->'''Rocco:''' ...I'll tip her!
* The trope is quoted almost verbatim in ''EternalSunshineOfTheSpotlessMind'' when Elijah Wood's character tells his associate that he stole a pair of a girl's panties while she was unconscious during one of their memory-erasing house calls. There's an awkward silence, after which they both laugh hysterically.
* In ''RosemarysBaby'', Rosemary dreams she is being raped by [[{{Satan}} the devil]] [[spoiler:(unfortunately, as it later turns out, this is not a dream)]]. When she wakes up, she discovers that her husband, with whom she had planned to try to conceive that night, has had sex with her while she slept. His justification? "I didn't want to miss 'baby night'."
* Played with twice in ''Film/KissKissBangBang''. Harmony fals asleep at a party and Harry stumbles upon her as a man is feeling up her thigh. Harry challenges the man to a fight, only to get beaten up and learn that the man was Harmony's date. Later on, she faints and Harry notices a spider crawling around her cleavage. Harry tries to swat the spider away, but wakes up Harmony in the process, causing her to think that he was groping her.
* In ''FrenchKiss'' (1995), the French thief/smuggler tries to search Kate while she is asleep on a train. Dreaming of her boyfriend, she grabs him in her sleep and they kiss. She wakes up refreshed and in a positive mood. This is a romantic comedy, so the scene isn't meant to be squick.
* Happens at a party in ''DeadPoetsSociety'' between one of the boys and a girl he's been pining after.
* Almost happens in ''AnimalHouse,'' but Pinto's [[GoodAngelBadAngel shoulder angel]] talks him out of it (much to the disgust of his shoulder devil).
* This is what the Prince does to Snow White in Disney's ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'' -- when he thought she was dead. Fortunately this magically revived her, so they could live HappilyEverAfter and presumably never talked about what he was doing in the first place. Note: The reviving kiss was introduced into the tale by Disney. In the Creator/BrothersGrimm version, the prince just decided to take her away, glass coffin and all -- and his servants stumble as they're carrying the coffin, jolting a piece of the poison apple out of her throat, which [[NoOntologicalInertia for some reason]] revives her.
* The same happens in Disney's ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'', but in this scenario, the prince is aware that a kiss will break the spell.
** This gets played with in the 2014 re-telling, ''Film/{{Maleficent}}''. Here, Phillip is actually rather embarrassed and reluctant to kiss the girl unconscious girl, saying he 'wouldn't feel right about it' having only met her once.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'', being a Disney parody at heart, sets up the awakening scene from Disney's ''Sleeping Beauty'', but then he shakes her awake instead. Bonus points for her pretending to be asleep [[spoiler: merely wanting a TrueLovesKiss to break her spell]].
* ''WesternAnimation/WallE''. EVE is in hibernate mode, and WALL-E takes her on dates and tries to hold her retracted hand. Though WALL-E didn't do anything ''more'' than this and he may just have been trying to wake her up and [[spoiler:later on, EVE pretty much does the same thing in return.]] Of course, they're both robots so they're not really in "comas" anyway, more like "stand-by".
* While nothing ''physical'' happens, this trope is subverted in ''TheCottage'', in which two incompetent criminals kidnap the nubile stepdaughter of a mobster for ransom. While carrying her unconscious body upstairs, one of the kidnappers decides to take the moment to eye her up. From his POV, we see his eyes move from her face, down to her chest, and then back to her face again, whereupon he sees she has woken up. The next thing we see is her head making hard contact with his face. Repeatedly.
* In ''Film/{{Kids}}'', a girl passed out drunk at a wild party gets raped by another teen party-goer.
* The ending of Nicolas Roeg's ''BadTiming''.
* Neither a kiss nor a coma, but in ''Film/TheBoneCollector'', Angelina Jolie's character runs her fingers over the face, neck, and hands of Denzel Washington's paralyzed character after he has had an attack and is unconscious. He wakes up with "There's laws against molesting the handicapped, you know."
* In ''Film/SuckerPunch'', Blue plans to [[spoiler:rape Baby Doll after her lobotomy as revenge, but he's put off by how UncannyValley she is after the procedure]].
* In ''Film/TheMatrix'', Trinity does this to Neo.
* The title character is conceived this way in ''Literature/TheWorldAccordingToGarp''.
* In slasher spoof ''ShriekIfYouKnowWhatIDidLastFridayTheThirteenth'', this is how the teen ButtMonkey Boner (...[[FailOSuckyname yes]]) ultimately decides to lose his virginity. [[spoiler:He's killed before he gets a chance to rape the girl. The fact that his actual first time turns out to be with a transsexual is probably a case of SexualKarma.]]
* The made-for-TV movie ''She Woke Up Pregnant'' is about a sleazy dentist who rapes his patients when they're under heavy sedatives after performing dental surgery on them, and the main character is a woman who winds up pregnant because of this and decides to fight back.
* Rare male example in ''Film/{{Purgatory}}''. Rose kisses Sonny, her love interest who she'd had an AlmostKiss with before, after he's beaten up and seems to be unconscious in the doctor's office. His eyes are half open again when she pulls back.
* Pretty much the entire point of ''Sleeping Beauty'' (2011): a disaffected young woman takes a job in which she is sedated and [[DirtyOldMan wealthy clients]] are allowed to do whatever they wish with her, with the stipulation that they cannot leave any marks on her and cannot penetrate her (though this goes disturbingly unspecified).
* This trope appears in Cheech and Chong's movie Nice Dreams. About two-thirds of the way through the film, Cheech is about to make it with a woman when she passes out from exhaustion/snorting too much cocaine. Cheech hesitates about continuing then breaks the fourth wall to poll the audience: "how many of you would do it, hands up?" and "how many of you wouldn't?". Cheech decides to go for it, and when she wakes up later she seems to have had a nice dream.
* This happens in ''NowVoyager'' with Bette Davis.
* A male example in ''Film/BadEducation''. After the performance at the drag club, Enrique returns back to his hotel room to have sex with [[DragQueen Zahara]]. When Enrique passes out during oral sex, Zahara ends up having intercourse with him while he's asleep. [[UnfortunateImplications This is complicated]] by the fact that the two were once in love as children.
* A less creepy example occurs at the end of ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartIII'', where Marty [=McFly=] finds his girlfriend Jennifer Parker asleep on her front porch - after failing to wake her the normal way, he kisses her on the lips, whereupon she wakes up, thinking that her trip to 2015 in ''Part II'' was all a dream.

[[folder:Literature]]
* Done when Eragon looks upon Arya in the first book of ''Literature/InheritanceCycle'' while she is passed out. Lampshaded because he feels embarrassed enough to catch himself thinking that. Combine this with an IntimateHealing scene and remind yourself Eragon is a [[HormoneAddledTeenager teenager]].
* From the ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'':
** A sleeping Leia almost gets kissed in ''SplinterOfTheMindsEye''. Fortunately for her (and the readers, and his own later peace of mind), ''[[{{Twincest}} Luke]]'' resists the impulse, vowing instead to protect her from everything, including himself. In Creator/AlanDeanFoster's defense, the book ''was'' published before they were revealed to be siblings.
** Luke Skywalker kisses Mara Jade while she was sleeping. Don't worry, he kissed her while they were both conscious [[ItWasHisSled by the end of the book.]]
* In ''[[Literature/TheIcewindDaleTrilogy The Halfling's Gem]]'', Drizzt Do'Urden kisses Catti-brie after she has been knocked semi-conscious by a long fall--and she's already involved with someone, no less.
* Happens in the ''Literature/{{Wicked}}'' sequel ''Son of a Witch'', when Candle ''has [[IntimateHealing sex]] with'' the unconscious Liir [[spoiler:and becomes pregnant. In the end she returns, long enough to dump their [[LamarckWasRight green-skinned daughter]] on him.]]
* In ''Literature/{{Lolita}}'', Humbert attempts to [[InvokedTrope invoke]] this trope by giving Lolita some sleeping pills so that he can fondle her without her knowing it. However, the pills turn out to not have as strong an effect as advertised, leaving Lolita just conscious enough for Humbert to decide not to take the risk. (They still do it in the morning, with her allegedly being the one who initiated it.)
** After their relationship has deteriorated, Humbert has sex with Lolita while she's sick and thus too bid-ridden to refuse him. He even says how warm the fever makes her, as opposed to her usual IceQueen response to his advances.
* Happens in ''McTeague'' after the titular character gives Trina anesthetic. It's implied that this is his compromise between doing nothing and raping her.
* In the novel ''Literature/{{Olympos}}'' by Dan Simmons, a man must have sex with a woman in a technology-induced slumber in order to awaken her. He's creeped out by the idea, but manages to perform by thinking about his girlfriend. The woman refers to him as a rapist for the rest of their time together, but doesn't seem to hold it against him.
* ''Take a Girl Like You'' by Kingsley Amis. [[spoiler: Jenny Bunn's would-be boyfriend date-rapes her while she is drunk and passed out.]]
* Ryel Mirai can't resist kissing his unconscious theoretically-love interest in Carolyn Kephart's ''Wysard''. (Resisting any woman isn't his strong point, but most of the others are actively trying to seduce him.)
* Carolyn Chute's ''Merry Men'' has a disturbing version of this. The main character's wife has to have surgery to remove a brain tumor, but she comes out of it brain-damaged and functioning at about the level of a two-year-old and has to be taken care of by her family. Over the course of the book, the husband repeatedly sneaks into his mother-in-law's house and has sex with his wife. It's broadly hinted that the [[WriterOnBoard Writer is On Board]] with this, as one of the few times his wife manages coherent speech is calling out his name during sex.
* In the first book of the AmeliaPeabody series ''Crocodile on a Sandbank'' Amelia comes out of a swoon to feel herself being tenderly held and kissed by her not yet husband Emerson with whom she has a SlapSlapKiss relationship going. Not only is she totally fine with it, she shams unconsciousness for a few more minutes to prolong the moment!
* In the ''DragonridersOfPern'' novel Dragonsdawn, most of Sallah Telgar's children were conceived by her seducing her husband while he was half-asleep and unable to do anything but go along. The exception was their first child (Which was the reason they got married in the first place), which was conceived by her getting them alone and serving him a meal liberally spiked with aphrodisiacs.
* In ChristopherMoore's [[BloodsuckingFiends vampire novels]], vampires become nonconscious (possibly completely dead) from dawn to sunset. The protagonist once complained to her boyfriend about the time she woke up, sticky, dressed like a [[AllGuysWantCheerleaders cheerleader.]]
* In the backstory of ''ASongOfIceAndFire'', [[UnluckyChildhoodFriend Lysa Tully]] had sex with [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Petyr 'Littlefinger' Baelish]] twice under dubious circumstances. The first was after a feast when he was [[DrowningMySorrows passed out drunk]] after being rejected by her sister Catelyn. He thought Lysa ''was'' Catelyn. The second time, Petyr was in a hallucinating, semi-conscious state from a feverish wound gained from a duel.
* In the third ''AnitaBlake'' novel the main vampire character Jean-Claude has to mark the main character before she dies of a monster snake bite. From what one character says it looked like Jean-Claude was struggling with the temptation of having 'his way' with her when she was topless and out cold.
* ''Russlan and Lyudmilla'' by Creator/AlexanderPushkin contains a part that the hero rescues his love, and takes her home while she is in an enchanted sleep. Pushkin lampshades the trope by stating that the narrator insisted Ruslan behaved honorably, and he believes that. Later, she is snatched by [[FakeUltimateHero another guy who brings her home]]... not so clear about him, but considering he was in a hurry, it is entirely possible he averted the trope as well.
* In John Barth's ''Letters'', Jerome Bray is depicted as routinely drugging women and raping them so as to get them pregnant. At least three of the main female characters receive this treatment; none of them seem [[AngstWhatAngst terribly upset]] over this, [[KarmaHoudini nothing happens]] to Bray as a result, and one of his victims ends up in his care by the end of the book. All of which lead to the [[DudeNotFunny disquieting notion]] that Barth was intentionally playing this trope [[PlayedForLaughs for laughs]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* A [[PlatonicLifePartners platonic]] version in ''{{Smallville}}''. Clark kisses an unconscious Chloe on her forehead before [[spoiler:he forces himself to wipe her memories of his secret.]]
* In ''Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined'', Sam finds an unconscious Kara and kisses her several times; this was actually a fairly heartwarming instance considering Sam had spent the last four months not knowing if she was even alive. Later when Sam is actually in a coma Kara kisses him and even crawls into bed with him; it is still heartwarming but also a major tearjerker since earlier in the episode the doctor flat out told her he was unlikely to ever wake up.
* In the ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' episode "Our Mrs. Reynolds," when Inara found Mal unconscious from [[DruggedLipstick Saffron's poisoned kiss]], she kissed him on the lips - mostly in a panic - resulting in paralysis at a most inconvenient time, since some of the lipstick was still on his lips. Afterwards, she denies it ever happened.
* In an episode of ''SaturdayNightLive'', one man mentions to his friends that he's having a sexual relationship with one of his patients that he feels conflicted about. Since you're on this page, you can figure out the punchline to this story on your own.
* In ''UnitedStatesOfTara'' the gay son, Marshall, has the friend he's been crushing on over to his house to watch a movie that was assigned for English class. The friend falls asleep and Marshall works up the nerve to kiss him. His friend wakes up, and kisses him back.
* Carly of ''ICarly'' kisses one of her crushes of the week, after he fell down an elevator shaft.
* ''{{Ideal}}'': Judith, being a recovering necrophiliac, takes advantage of Moz when he passes out during a party (he doesn't mind), and kisses Jenny during her coma.
* An episode of ''Series/LawAndOrder'' deals with a woman who becomes pregnant... years after being put into a coma by a car accident. [[spoiler: It's later revealed that her mother paid an orderly to rape her in order to produce a grandchild. The case gets... ugly.]]
** A similar episode of ''LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' had a woman in a coma pregnant. At first they thought it was this trope, but it turned out much worse. [[spoiler: A dying man is having multiple women impregnated to harvest stem cells. Then he sues for custody.]]
** Another L&O episode had these couples using drugs for sex. The wife would take something, which would knock her out, and then her husband would have sex with her unconscious form.
* ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'''s Jack does this to Ianto in a very unprofessional "KissOfLife" fashion.
** Played with in "End of Days" when Gwen kisses Jack's dead-for-days body to say goodbye. (Though he then proceeds to revive).
* Subverted in an episode of ''{{Cheers}}''. Sam is alone with a passed-out Rebecca and whispers to himself, "do it!". He proceeds to... dress her up in a bandito costume and draw a moustache on her face.
* Sue White ''impregnates herself with Mac's sperm'' when he's in a coma in ''GreenWing''. Caroline is also seen kissing him and trying to lie next to him.
* Monica and Phoebe in ''Series/{{Friends}}'' fawn over a guy they both like who is in a coma.
** Another episode of Friends had Chandler reveal he kissed a drunk Rachel at a party to get back at Ross for going out with a girl he liked. Ross then reveals that the night of the party was when he first kissed Rachel, while she was unconscious underneath a pile of coats. Subverted in the revelation that he didn't kiss Rachel, he kissed [[BrotherSisterIncest Monica]]
*** Which leads Chandler to exclaim 'This is what I married into?!'
* Subverted in ''Series/{{Northern Exposure}}'' when Maggie is offended that Joel didn't finish what they were doing when she passed out from sleep deprivation.
* In the Japanese drama ''ShokojoSera'' (a remake of ''Literature/ALittlePrincess''), this was done by both Sera and Kaito but both weren't on the lips. Kaito did it first to Sera on the forehead, while he and [[BeautifulDreamer a sleeping Sera]] were waiting for a bus. Sera would do it to [[SleepCute a sleeping Kaito]] on the cheek when she was forced to leave the academy.
* The titular character from ''NodameCantabile'' sneaks a kiss to the sleeping Chiaki's cheek, [[LampshadeHanging pointing out]] this was her chance. Of course, [[spoiler: Chiaki was awake the whole time and [[GenreSavvy he knew Nodame wouldn't have resisted the temptation to kiss him]]. He let her because he wanted to thank her for everything she had done for him.]]
* Referenced in the "Very Special Drew" episode of the ''TheDrewCareyShow''. Drew is marrying Kate, who's in a coma. She manages to wake up just in time to say "I do". Oswald notes that the honeymoon will be a lot less creepy now.
* In ''Series/CallMeFitz'', Fitz gets Babs Devon to marry him while she suffers from Locked-in Syndrome. It gets a lot more fun when she suddenly wakes up to say I do.
* While Nancy is comatose in ''Series/{{Weeds}}'', Doug takes the opportunity to feel her up and even loosens her hospital gown so he can take a quick peek at her breasts. He just avoids getting caught in the act by Andy and Jill.

* In MesopotamianMythology, [[IHaveManyNames Ishtar/Inanna/whatever you want to call her]] falls asleep under a poplar tree, and a young man by the name of Shukaletuda is taken with her beauty and has his way with her. When she wakes up and realizes she has been violated, she sends plagues upon the Earth until she finds Shukaletuda (who had gone into hiding). He begs her for forgiveness, but she will have none of that and kills him.

* ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet''. In one of the most famous scenes in all of literature, Juliet kisses a dead Romeo, who has taken poison due to thinking Juliet herself was dead. The kiss was both out of love and out of hope that a remnant of the poison would still be on his lips, thus killing Juliet. She has to use Romeo's dagger in order to finally end it.
** Romeo also kisses Juliet when she's unconscious/seemingly dead as his final act before committing suicide.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryIV''. You are given the opportunity to kiss or even "cop a feel" of a certain vampiress while she's asleep in her coffin. She's not too incredibly amused if you do.
** Ironically she's angry because she thinks you were trying to kill her in her sleep. Maybe it's better to let her think that.
*** Even worse, if you take the obvious action and kill her, you end up dead. So [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop fondling her is the ''best thing to do''.]] Huh. Way to go, Sierra.
*** There "is* an option to shake her awake, which actually makes sense under the circumstances, since you've just found out that she's not the Big Bad, but rather the person keeping the Big Bad from going kill crazy on the entire area. So it's not so Family Unfriendly after all.
* The FanRemake of ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestIIRomancingTheThrone King's Quest II]]'' has this as a possibility [[spoiler: but you'll need a different tactic to wake Valanice]].
* ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures''. Fox would've kissed the unconscious Krystal if she was in reach and Peppy hadn't interrupted.
* The 2006 ''VideoGame/{{Sonic the Hedgehog|2006}}'' game comes to mind, with Princess Elise's [[spoiler: necrobestial kiss with Sonic's dead body]]. In a {{Narm}}ful inversion of the Literature/SleepingBeauty archetype, [[spoiler: her kiss brings him back to life so he can prevent the god of light from destroying all of space and time]].
* {{Gender flip}}ped in ''[[VideoGame/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice Sam and Max Hit the Road]]''. Trixie the giraffe-necked girl falls in love with Bruno the Frozen Bigfoot (they're circus attractions). She reads him bedtime stories and bakes cakes for him while he's [[HumanPopsicle sealed in a block of ice]]. However, Bruno is eventually thawed and the two run away together.
* In ''YosugaNoSora'', Sora does this to Haruka... oh, and by the way, Haruka is ''her'' {{twin|cest}} {{brother|SisterIncest}}.
* ''VideoGame/ShiningForce II'' for the Sega Genesis presented this, naturally, as the only way to awaken the otherwise comatose Princess of the Granseal Kingdom after the BigBad was beaten once and for all.
* Rachel's gag reel in ''VideoGame/BlazBlueContinuumShift'' has Kokonoe attempting to subdue Ragna via InstantSedation. When Noel asked for her plans about after he took the laced candy (which failed due to Litchi shattering it), Kokonoe let out some very suggestive dialogue (which [[CensoredForComedy the censoring]] only made worse).
* Subverted in ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'' with [[spoiler: Melia]] and [[spoiler: Shulk]]. The former considers doing this as a show of gratitude for all that the latter has done for her since they met, but she ultimately ends up being too bashful to go through with it.

* ''VisualNovel/MajiDeWatashiNiKoiShinasai'' has a more extreme version of this. Having run out of ideas, Yamato's last desperate gamble to [[spoiler:keep Chris in Japan]] is this. She wakes up partway through, and they end up going all night long. [[spoiler:Surprisingly, it works!]]

* In ''RedString'', Morita moves to kiss the teacher she's been crushing on when she finds him dozing in the teacher's lounge. She realizes what she's doing at the last second and runs off.
* Is also used in the webcomic ''SomethingPositive'', where [[spoiler: Davan is lying in bad after release from the hospital, sedated and semiconscious. Cue Kim, who, visiting to take care of him, is overcome by feelings of lust, and proceeds to have sex with the comatose Davan. Instead of complaining about the rape itself, he whines about [[AManIsNotAVirgin not having been awake to enjoy it]].]]
** Notably, the incident is very clearly indicated as rape, and is referred to as such for the rest of the series, even though it was non-violent and both parties probably would have been willing participants in different circumstances.
*** The definition of rape is non-consensual sex. Whether he ''would have'' agreed or not is immaterial, as is whether or not it's violent.
** That spoiler up there is an AlternativeCharacterInterpretation; [[http://somethingpositive.net/sp01262003.shtml read the whole arc, if you dare!]]
** Given a continuity nod later on when Kim pulls Davan into a supply closet:

--> '''Davan''': "Consenting."
** From the same site, we have this little [[http://www.rhymes-with-witch.com/rww05022011.shtml reinterpetation]] of Sleeping Beauty.

* In ''{{Homestuck}}'', characters may revive dead or dying friends by kissing them. This trope is averted when [[spoiler: Vriska is nearly killed by Aradia, and Tavros has the opportunity to kiss her while she is unconscious. However, despite the urging of his patron Dersite, Tavros does not have the courage to kiss her.]]
* Lampshaded in [[http://www.truefork.org/Art/comic/cindex.php?556 this episode]] of ''NotQuiteDailyComic'' where [[spoiler: Malène feigns unconsciousness but S-ko feigns not to notice and raises moral scruples.]]

* In "Ask That Guy VIOLATES Ma-Ti", [[WebVideo/AskThatGuyWithTheGlasses Ask That Guy]] plans to [[CaptainObvious violate]] Ma-Ti while he's unconscious. It gets turned around on him rather quickly.
* While much, ''much'' lighter than the fanfic example with them above, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick and WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic did this to each other in her "Bratz-Transformers" arc. First, she strokes the back of his neck creepily while giggling after she chloroforms him. Later, when she's unconscious and he's close behind, he pinches her ass. [[ShipTease No wonder the shippers were delighted]].
* ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' provides the page quote above. In a non-sexual variant, Joey protests "Yug, she's in a coma!" when Yami Yugi starts making sexist jokes at Mai's expense.
* In the Epilogue of ''[[DNAKpts4tv Death Note: The Abridged Series (kpts4tv)]]'' Matsuda fathers eight children with [[spoiler: Sayu]] while she's still in a coma.
* In the GagSub The Adventures of Yuki Nagato of ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'', "the narrator" directly references this trope.
--> '''Narrator:''' The hell?!? DUDE! That's creepy! She's, like, in a coma or something!

* Carl in ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'' remembering a Foreigner concert he attended:
-->Carl: "I totally copped a feel on this passed-out broad. Now, whenever I hear "Urgent," I think of her boobs all covered in my vomit."
* Subverted in ''{{Jimmy Two-Shoes}}''. In an episode where everyone except Jimmy is in hibernation, he goes into Heloise's room to try and wake her up. After failing, [[ShipTease he reads a book she was holding saying that a sleeping girl can be awakened with a kiss]]. He looks at Heloise a moment...then tosses the book aside, muttering that you can't believe everything you read.
* In ''{{Metalocalypse}}'', Nathan Explosion's girlfriend falls down a very large flight of stairs and winds up in a coma. He still dates her, calling her "the perfect girlfriend."
** She then breaks up with him for another man. ''While still in the coma''.
* ''RobotChicken'' did a skit where a bird overlooking Prince Charming attempt to kiss Snow White (or maybe it was Sleeping Beauty) starts yelling "Date rape! Date rape!"
* In ''WesternAnimation/XMen'' Morph fools Gambit by turning into Rogue and flirting with him, implying her touch was no longer fatal, while advising she'd be napping in the rec room, where the real Rogue was asleep. Gambit took the bait and tried to wake up Rogue with a kiss. The move knocked Gambit cold for half the episode and woke up a very frustrated Rogue.

%% No real life examples on rape tropes. Seriously.
