* ''AssociatedSpace'' uses Catapult Points for interstellar travel. These are giant metal circles placed in orbit around a sun, which gives the devices the immense amount of power necessary to use the things. Once a ship goes into the circle, the gate activates, creating an effect that zaps the ship to another star system, which catches you with similar catapult point, using its immense power to disrupt the effect.

* ''{{Achron}}'s'' teleporters and chronoporters (that facilitate mass teleportation and mass time travel respectively) look like cool spinning stargates. Which is a bit [[RuleOfCool unnecessary]] since no unit actually ''walks'' through them.

** As of 1.8, End Portals are also available. These are even more difficult to find since they are only found in strongholds and only 3 of those spawn on the entire map. Also, the final boss is on the other side of End portal.

*** As of 1.9, after you kill the Enderdragon, yet another Cool Gate spawns in the sky. There is no way to enter it without using an ender pearl, and if you do enter it, you are taken about a kilometre away from the central FloatingContinent in the End, where you find endless seas of islands with purple trees and strange castles, sometimes with a CoolAirship docked at them.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': The Gate To Hell.
** ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' also had a gate (that looked like a big sliding door) that Soul Reapers could create to travel from the world of the living to the Soul Society (Captain Kuchiki uses one early in the series to return himself, Rukia and Renji).

* Manga/BlueExorcist: The Gehenna Gate which is like a sort of EldritchAbomination in its own.

* In Sergey Lukyanenko's ''Literature/RoughDraft'' series, the portals to [[AlternateReality Alternate Realities]] are shown as regular doors, although they can only be opened by the customs officer-Functional who lives at the customs office. This, as well as the abilities of the Functionals, is explained by their advanced understanding of quantum physics.

* ''The Crystal Key'' uses simple arches activated by the titular key to provide direct transport between the Arkonian colony planets. The number of places you can go is determined by the number of "planes" attached to the key. They recently perfected the ability to design portable portals as well, from small remote-controlled ones you can carry around - and which go with you when used, to huge rods mounted on spaceships, which they used to deter the [[DarthVaderClone malevolent psychic warlord, Ozgar.]]
