* The plot of ''VideoGame/XComApocalypse'' revolves around aliens from Another Dimension invading through spinning geometric portals. Initially it is impossible to make the jump to their dimension without being torn to pieces, requiring that the Project reverse-engineering the alien LivingShip technology. Travelling through reveals the alien home to be a scorched, barren wasteland, the alien base a series of gigantic organic structures that must be methodically torn down to put a stop to the attacks.

Despite 'dimension' being a relatively new term for it, the concept is OlderThanDirt. The [[LandOfFaerie "fairy lands"]] of Myth/CelticMythology and European fairy tales, the various universes of Hindu cosmology, {{Hell}}, {{Heaven}} and TheUnderworld, and so on.

* So is the title hero of ''WesternAnimation/{{Fangbone}}''. It's called Skullbania and looks a lot like the settings found in BarbarianHero fantasy stories, complete with monsters and {{Evil Sorceror}}s

The popular usage of this term is 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]] ''[[AcidTripDimension anything]]'' [[AcidTripDimension can happen]].

* The Dark Place from ''VideoGame/AlanWake'' is a bizarre realm "beyond the shores of our reality". It is home to more than a few [[EldritchAbomination dark entities]] of [[BlueAndOrangeMorality calamitous intentions]] and it is by nature "fluid", constantly shifting according to the whims and thoughts of its inhabitants; works of art created here or at contact points with our reality (such as Cauldron Lake) can influence reality by coming true. The protagonist, a novelist, writes a book that comes true over the course of the game, and once in the Dark Place itself, finds himself surrounded by words and ideas that he can turn into physical reality, and manifestations of his own fear and hopelessness coming to kill him. It's stated repeatedly that even though signals can travel from it to our reality, once you're in the Dark Place, it is next to impossible to leave, at least withou bringing something ''terrible'' along with you. By the time of ''Alan Wake's American Nightmare'', two years after the first game, Wake has become much more adept at handling the Dark Place and its inhabitants. He is able to write himself as one of the protagonist of one of his works and travel back to our reality at a point of contact (this time near a town in Arizona), but it's hinted that this is not an actual escape and it's not even clear if [[GainaxEnding the events of the game actually took place]].

* ''ComicBook/{{Zenith}}'' has not only the traditional AlternateUniverse setup, but a dimension outside of spece and time which [[EldritchAbomination the Lloigor]] call home.
