* Applied in all kinds of weird ways in A.A. Attanasio's ''The Last Legends of Earth''. The space between lynks permits time travel and goes off in weird ways. Gai, the alien Rimstalker, comes from a realm at a much higher "energy level", known only as "the range", allowing a relatively small Rimstalker ship to create entire solar systems (this is also the cause of their problems - the zotl are AlwaysChaoticEvil and don't care that the range is inhabited, just that it's a great energy source). A character who wandered in from another book in the Radix Tetrad had a congenital brain defect fixed by an alien from a realm even a Rimstalker-programmed AI was amazed to learn existed.

* Siren powers in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' involve other dimensions, which is why they always begin with "phase-". Of note, Lab Rat enemies in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'' apparently see some other weird dimension, and see it ''more'' when phaselocked by Maya...which is somewhat concerning, given that [[EldritchAbomination the Destroyer]] is said to have come from another dimension, and may have some connection to Sirens...

* ''Roleplay/{{Adylheim}}'' has a great deal of these, including a cosmarchy spanning five alternate realities.
* Similar to ''Sliders'', the whole point of ''Script/AHDotComTheSeries''.
* ''WebVideo/TheCartoonMan'' saga involves an AlternateTooniverse known as the Second Dimension.



* ''Roleplay/TheGamersAlliance'' has several planes of reality, including the Land of the Living, the Land of the Dead, the Void, the High Plane, and the Demon Realm among others.

* {{Felarya}} is described as a "dimensional plane". Hell and Heaven are both separate dimensions, which mimic the various belief systems of those who arrive there.
* Killer Monster from ''WebAnimation/DSBTInsaniT'' resides in one that is essentially Hell.



* In ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', a GadgeteerGenius named Haywire managed to make a communications link between two {{Alternate Timeline}}s -- they are then dubbed Earth Aleph and Earth Bet.

* In ''WebOriginal/KeitAi'', at least two planes of reality that serve as [[AlternateUniverse parallel dimensions]] to each other are involved in the story concept. There's the male protagonist's dimension and the alternate version of his female crush in a parallel dimension that's practically the same as his world.

This term is actually used incorrectly; "other dimensions" are not locations, but the means by which you get to them.[[note]]and let's not talk about "parallel dimensions", which is [[LogicBomb a contradiction in its own right]][[/note]] Our universe, as far as we know, contains four dimensions (length, width, height, and time). We have free movement in the first three, but are locked in a continuous forward motion in the last. Free movement in the fourth dimension is called TimeTravel. Free movement in the fifth dimension, or "time squared", is usually seen as jumping sideways from branch to branch within the tree of choices and alternate events that make up the multiverse- so called {{alternate universe}}s. Basically, if you've ever ended up in an Earth where [[GodwinsLawOfTimeTravel Hitler won the war]], you've travelled in the fifth dimension. The sixth dimension, or "time cubed", is where things get ''really'' weird. Because we as a species [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm don't have the capacity to comprehend]] what the temporal version of "up" is, we tend to see the sixth dimension (or higher) as home to wildly alien places with [[EldritchLocation their own laws of physics]] where [[AcidTripDimension literally ''anything'' can happen]].

* ''Literature/EdenGreen''/''Literature/NewNight'' heavily feature an alien dimension (later called Fortuna) that has made invasive contact with Earth, releasing thousands of black needle monsters meant to destroy Earth ecosystems and prepare for colonization.

* Although the ComicBook/FantasticFour often visit the Negative Zone, it's their UltimateMarvel counterparts who actually use it as part of their SuperHeroOrigin. And they use the nature of other dimensions as a [[spoiler:weapon against Gah Lak Tus]].

* Several episodes of ''TheRealGhostbusters'' deal with other dimensions, many of the "ghosts" seen in the show are not really spirits of the dead but life forms from other dimensions. Some of the episodes that deal with this are: ''Flip Side'' (which also works as the MirrorUniverse episode) with a world were ghost are normal citizens and humans are the ones that scares, ''Venkman's Ghost Repellers'' shows a BermudaTriangle expy called The New Jersey Parallelogram, ''Who're You Calling Two-Dimensional?'' shows that there is an entire dimension inhabitated by cartoon characters, ''Chicken, He Clucked'' shows a multiverse with many dimensions and one of them has all the chickens in the world after a man who hate chickens make a DealWithTheDevil in order to make them disappear from Earth, ''The Cabinet of Calamari'' shows a dimension connected troughout a magician's box and ''You Can't Teach an Old Demon New Tricks'' similar to the latter, a demon living in other dimension connected through a magician's cabinet wants to learn magic tricks but is unable to as only magicians assistants and white doves come from the cabinet until the Ghosbusters get there, etc. Even the Containment Unit can be considered another dimension as is BiggerOnTheInside and seems to be a ghostly realm.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'''s [[BigBad main villain]] Bill Cipher is a dream demon from another dimension named the Nightmare Realm. He is originally from the second dimension (thus why he looks like a triangle) and wants to merge the Nightmare Realm with our universe, the third dimension, thus causing the EndOfTheWorld.

* The [[CutAndPasteTranslation first Ocean dub]] by ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' claims that Goku and anyone defeated has been sent to the other dimension but it's pretty obvious that such line is inserted to [[NeverSayDie cover up the fact that they are straight-up killed]].

* ''Fanfic/TheAlarmaverse'': There are many, many other universes that one can step into quite easily, if you just know how to move in the right direction. Ditzy is one of the few who know.

* ''Franchise/TenchiMuyo'' alludes to this in the third installment of the OVA series. Though all of the story takes place on the prime plane, there are some sequences which feature inter-dimensional travelers attempting to wage war against Tokimi. In the final episode, it's revealed that the universe contains ''[[UpToEleven eleven]]'' planes of existence - [[spoiler: and then Tenchi threatens to break past all of those into the Hyperdimension, which is apparently the dwelling place of the gods themselves.]]
This list shows the last 10 events of 173. Show all.
