* The ''WheresWaldo'' cartoon (possibly a video-only series) utilized Waldo's "hiding" aspect by making his cane magical—he traced a ring with its tip in the air in front of him to create a portal to anywhere. It was his EvilTwin [[SdrawkcabName Odlaw's]] desire to steal this cane and use it for nefarious purposes.

* The gate in [[spoiler:Myotismon's castle]] from ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' is used in reverse: it doesn't take you to MagicalLand but ''from'' it.
** In Anime/DigimonAdventure02, any computer with a [[AppliedPhlebotinum Digivice]] held up to it.

it. (In fact, it can take you to ''any'' dimension so long as you know how to properly arrange the cards.)
** In Anime/DigimonAdventure02, any computer with a D3 [[AppliedPhlebotinum Digivice]] held up to it.it. (The old-school digivice used by the original team could only access the Digital World from certain computers at certain times. If the gate closes, you're out of luck. The new kids can come and go at will, though.)


Added DiffLines:

**The Space Bridge has been seen in many Transformers series - never the same in any two versions, but pretty darned cool in all of them! Depending on the version, sometimes you only need a device on the "sending" end and can target it anywhere, but sometimes you need a device at both ends. There are also versions where they're part of a PortalNetwork similar to the StargateVerse's gates, only visible when in use and no hardware ever seen; sometimes bots seem to summon portals out of nowhere but are unable to do it to a place that 'doesn't have a space bridge.'


Added DiffLines:

*In ''WesternAnimation/LegionOfSuperHeroes,'' we once see a PortalNetwork's [[PortalCrossroadWorld hub]], with some very StargateVerse-esque gates.

* The ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'' series had Moongates, which got cooler and cooler each game up to the 9th. Drop a pebble in a ring of standing stones, and with a clap of thunder a bright, shimmering indigo gate springs from the ground.

* Doors that open to distant locations, times, and/or realities are a dime a dozen in the {{Nightside}} series, and one minor character even operates a business where people can pay to pass through any of the hundreds of CoolGate doorways he's stocked his shop with.

* 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.
