* The world of ''TheDarkEye'' consist of seven planes, generally imagined as concentric spheres. The first is unaccessible and "only" a core. The second is a place of raw elemental powers. The third is the one where all the mortal life happens. The fourth is where the souls of the dead rest. The fifth is where the gods dwell, and cosists the paradises particularly worthy mortal souls may be eccepted into. The sixth is the sky with its stars, and some lesser gods can be found here. The seventh sphere is hell, a realm of chaos and infernal cold (ice/cold being the opposite of life in this world's elemental philosophy). In effect, the entire world, from the gods down, is just a relatively insignificant speck in a universe that wants to destroy it.

An ancient trope, still used. Another Dimension refers to universes that are "next" to our own, which require [[InterdimensionalTravelDevice magic or high-end technology]] to travel to and from. In theory, from our world they are in a direction other than the directions we are familiar with. There may be a VoidBetweenTheWorlds to go through to reach them.

Travel to and from another dimension is usually via some sort of [[PortalDoor door, vortex, portal, gate, window]] -- the exact term depends on the story. Sometimes some kind of {{teleportation}} suffices. Characters might need the aid of WeirdnessSearchAndRescue to get home. Entering the dimension can sometimes be used as an ExtradimensionalShortcut.

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 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 as home to wildly alien places with [[EldritchLocation their own laws of physics]] where [[AcidTripDimension literally ''anything'' can happen]].

This term is actually used incorrectly (and let's not talk about "parallel dimensions", which is [[LogicBomb a contradiction in its own right]]). What we usually know as another dimension could be called a "parallel space" in a fifth (or other-th) dimension: that fifth dimension would be the set of all existing alternate spaces.

{{Alternate universe}}s are often just a variety of Another Dimension. Unlike [=AUs=], though, other dimensions don't necessarily have to resemble the "home" universe. There may be a VoidBetweenTheWorlds to go through.

** The episode "The Wish" introduces an alternate continuity timeline caused by Anyanka, which was supposedly destroyed when her demonic power source was destroyed. But it gets confusing because this alternate timeline is actually ALSO an alternate dimension, since the episode "Doppelg?land" has AU!Willow being pulled from that universe into the primary universe.

But it gets confusing because this alternate timeline is actually ALSO an alternate dimension, since the episode "Doppelg?land" has AU!Willow being pulled from that universe into the primary universe. Just to make it vaguer, the time she gets pulled from is during the events of ''The Wish''; whether the world continues beyond the point where that episode ends is unknown.
