* The gates between Dark and Light Aether in ''MetroidPrime 2: Echoes''.
* The protagonist's wand is seen to produce a ''very'' cool one in the trailer for ''{{Ninokuni}}''. Presumably it takes him to the titular Another World.
* The Spirit Gate in ''{{Okami}}''. [[spoiler:It takes the player 100 years into the past.]] The Golden Gates also serve as checkpoints, and Devil Gates lead to a battlefield with more enemies than usual for the area.

* John [=DeChancie=] likes this trope; his ''CastlePerilous'' has 144,000 doors, each leading to an AlternateUniverse, and they don't just wait for you to walk through—the portals wander, and actively seek out those who want to travel or get away. His ''Skyway'' series has "Tollbooths" (no doubt named as a ShoutOut to ''ThePhantomTollbooth'') which use miles-tall columns of virtual particles to create [[OurWormholesAreDifferent wormholes]] linking a vast Road across thousands of planetary surfaces.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' the GroundBridge and its big brother SpaceBridges function as long-distance (in the latter case, at ''least'' interplanetary) transport gates, with the space "in between" being [[OurWormholesAreDifferent spacious enough to fight in]].
