It's a bizarre episode that involves a blob monster emerging from a broken fridge and nearly killing most of the crew.

Other times he's outright told he's being subjected to a dream, or is it a dream within a dream, or has it been reality all along? It's a wonder this show made any sense at all.

Ban Mido uses his Jagan to produce hallucinations for exactly one minute.

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex Episode 18 revolves around Yu, a teenager who has been turned into an assassin by having his late father's mind downloaded into him.
Yu is incapacitated by the Major before he can stab the politician he is targeting, but then activates an explosive device, seemingly killing everyone in the vicinity. It's then revealed that this was all a false memory that had been digitally written into Yu's cyberbrain, as tricking him into thinking the assassination was successful was the only way to get rid of the father's memories.
Actually THAT is a dream he's having as he dies. Inverted in the sixth episode chronologically. Just at the climax of the episode, with Haruhi and him kissing, it abruptly cuts off and he falls off his bed.
He then rants "What kind of dream was that? Sigmund Freud is gonna be laughing at me!
After she also claimed to have had a bad dream, it is entirely obvious that it wasn't a dream. Koizumi suggests this trope as an ending to Haruhi's movie that will subconsciously convince her that the events of the movie are fictional. This suggestion is met with blank stares from the rest of the Brigade.
Snowy Mountain Syndrome is a complicated and strange experience involving a massive blizzard and a mysterious mansion where the brigade seeks shelter, and are then trapped. When they escape after several hours, they end up back on the sunny ski-slope, and not ten minutes have passed. Kyon and Koizumi planned to just feign ignorance when Haruhi brought it up, which would lead her to believe it was a dream, but Mikuru screwed up that plan by admitting she remembered everything as well.
Koizumi had to BS something about a mass hallucination, which made no sense, but Haruhi believed it anyway. Upon waking up, he finds himself hugging Asia, which prompts an angry response from Rassei. In InuYashaKagome gets tricked into dreaming she is living a normal school life on two distinct occasions. The first is during a battle with Tsubaki, and the second was one of the battles with Naraku.
The Tsubaki episode is interesting, since she sees many of her friends as Real Life personas Kikyou for instance is her archery instructor at school. A manga chapter of Mahoraba went from mild out-of-character moments for the other characters to intensely bizarre rooftop battles against a giant monster. At the end of the chapter, there is a chart which grades the reader based on when they figured out that the chapter was in fact a dream.
OVA of Naruto turns out to be Sasuke's dream, throughout which Itachi was trying to tell him something important. Sasuke figures it out at the end. One of the great many interpretations of episodes of Neon Genesis Evangelion. The episode 26 AU started with this Frequently subverted in Nightmare Inspectorthough grandly played straight in the end when the characters learn that not only is Mizuki's brother Azusa, vessel for the Baku Hiruko before Chitose took over, still alive, he's been concocting the biggest, darkest, and most twisted nightmare ever, hoping that it will consume him and he can finally rest in relative peace.
Chitose was a figment of his imagination. Everything that happened since Chitose took over was all just Azusa's nightmare, that Mizuki and Hifumi were trapped in.
The One Piece short "Jiginai Time" or "No Respect Time" apparently takes place entirely within the dream of an incredibly bored, talking moaimuch to the main characters' chagrin. The episode "Haruhi in Wonderland" of Ouran High School Host Club is all Haruhi's dream, but it's obvious from the beginning that it is either a dream or at least a nonsense episode based on Alice in Wonderland. What makes the episode really neat is its use of dream logic and the way she wakes up by slowly realizing that people and places are not exactly as they are in real life.
The final realization that causes her to awaken is trying to hug her mother who was already dead when the series began.
Two episodes of Patlabor. In the first, Shige gets knocked out and dreams that he moves to New York to become part of a team of Toku heroes. In the second, it looks like Noa dreams that she's the hero of an Ultraman parody It involved an old Ash reminiscing about his childhood, and remembering the series.
The series had mostly been the fantasy of a boy that had faded as he had aged. It would end with Ash closing his eyes, hearing his mother's voice, and a young Ash running off to another adventure. Then Ranma wakes up again — the entire episode was just a dream, and the intro was a dream within a dream.
He's understandably paranoid that he hasn't really woken up yet. The idea is poked fun at in the 6th episode of Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei 's second season. This was largely done because the characters underwent a massive Genre Shift from outright horror to Lighter and Softer Black Comedywith Souchi portrayed as a relatively harmless nuisance in contrast to the original stories, where he was essentially a mass murderer.
The second season of Shakugan no Shana starts with Yuji trapped inside a dream created by the real first villain of the season. Yuji picks up on some deja vu, but when complete scenes and defeated villains from the first season start showing up, then he knows something's wrong. No one will listen to him or tell him anything he—the one the dream is based on—doesn't already know.
The dream falls apart once he pieces everything together, and he wakes up in the middle of a battle with that villain. Parodied in Sketchbookwhen Tsukiyo hands in a manga she's written, only to be told by the editor that she has to rewrite the ending, since having it be All Just A Dream is bad writing.
Then she wakes up in her bed. Any episodes that feature Akubi-dori will be the results of this trope. Whenever she yawns, she'll send the main character of the episode in a long sleep and into a dream. Most of these would be nightmares, Creampanda's caseor they'll be good for so long until something bad happens Dokinchan's case when she was about to kiss Shokupanman. The only way to get out of the dream is to find Akubi-dori, go inside her, and pull any of the mood ropes to make her sneeze.
After that, all of the characters would wake up and none of them except for the main character will remember the events that happened in the episode.
Another episode was in when Baikinman wonders why he can't be stronger than Anpanman, and a small purple guy named Nazobo says he'll take him, Dokinchan, Horrorman, and Anpanman to the dream world.
There, the main three bad guys meet Princess Hatena, who can grant Baikinman's destiny by giving him a cape and a staff, with which he succeeds in defeating his nemesis, but he doesn't know if this will be his choice. Then it turned into a nightmare when Princess Hatena traps the three with the staff she gave to Baikinman and coils around them.
Unlike the Akubi-dori example, it's debatable whether the events of that episode actually happened or not. Twice in the anime-only first series of To Love-Ru: Episode 10 begins with Rito accidentally seeing Haruna changing out of her tennis uniform, he tries to look away but starts coming on to him and wanting a kiss.
It turns out the whole thing was a dream as he wakes up and finds a naked Lala next to him who was apparently dreaming of himto which he freaks out and faints.
Episode 23 has Saruyama becomes jealous of Rito's popularity and wishes he was a noble in Edo Castle. He then has daydreams of his many adventures as the ruler of Edo Castle, where all his friends make appearances. Done humorously in the form of episode one of The Tower of Druaga.
Many episodes of Urusei Yatsura were dream sequences, usually obvious in that the episode was occurring in the past or with historical characters. In one episode, Kitsune watches a movie about a fox who uses magical nuts to turn the human woman he loves into a fox. In the end, however, he wakes up to finds himself in the open field where he saw the movie, revealing that the night he turned Shinobu into a fox was just a dream.
Played with very cleverly in the second movie. It is then revealed that the school is actually dilapidated and barricaded, that the main characters are the survivors of a Zombie Apocalypseand that the scenes of normal school life are the delusion Yuki's mind has created to shut out the trauma. Card Games Hecatomb had a literal "It Was Only A Dream" card which can eliminate practically any card your opponent has out, essentially making them have never happened.
Comedy Comedian Emo Phillips inverts this trope when he talks about a dream he had. He describes a long series of really bizarre, Emo-Phillipian events that ends with him getting knocked unconscious.
The team — along with various other gen-active teens they'd met along the course of the series — has one last hedonistic, live-like-there's-no-tomorrow-cuz-there-ain't good time before "The End". Turns out this was all in Caitlin Fairchild's head, an extended hallucination brought on by the effects of another gen-active's powers in the split-second before a Death Trap disintegrated them all they got better.
This has happened innumerable times in superhero comics as an "out" for a wacky story that doesn't fit into canon. So much so that it was common to include the blurb "Not a dream!
Not an imaginary story! Since Covers Always Liethey'd usually find some other cop-out that meant the events still weren't what they seemed. Cosmic Adventures in the 8th Grade: In the beginning of chapter 2, Supergirl flies over her school. All of sudden all begin calling her "Linda Lee". She freaks out and wonders why everybody knows her Secret Identity before waking up.
She's happy until Lightning Lad tells her that she is dreaming. Bizarrogirl opens up with a battle between Supergirl and Superwoman.
It looks like a flashback narrating the final fight between both super-beings until the legions of undead make clear Kara is having a nightmare. Bruce Jones' run on Incredible Hulk was retconned in this manner, with Peter David 's subsequent run explaining that it was all a hallucination brought on by Nightmare.
Emma Bunton divulges all about shock Spice Girls reunion Daily Mail Online
RIP storyline is among other things an attempt to bring the wackier Silver Age adventures of the Dark Knight in-canon by explaining them as hallucinations caused by sensory deprivation experiments.
An original quote from one of those Silver-Age tales is a prominent part of the storyline and very typical of the trope: For in my hand, I hold the Bat-Radia! An alternative explanation provided for some of these episodes is the insinuation that they were hallucinations brought about by exposure to Joker toxin, Scarecrow's fear gas, etc. Tom Strong issues 29 and 30 had the eponymous hero awaken from his superheroic life into a gray world with no wonder or adventure where he was just a factory worker with a case of bad self-esteem.
