* 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.]]

* 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 Fuctionals, is explained by their advanced understanding of quantum physics.
* The ''YoungWizards'' series has "world gates", small patches of space-time only visible to wizards, which occur naturally but can also be created by magic or very advanced technology. Though wizards can teleport without world gates, using a gate requires much less energy, especially for trips that are measured in light-years. On Earth world gate complexes are maintained by teams of cat wizards, since cats are the only Earth species which is naturally capable of seeing the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/String_theory string structures]] which the gates are made from.

* For a while the ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' were the proud owners of the Siege Perilous (named for the Arthurian myth), a magical portal which shrunk down to handy portable size. Passing through it would reboot your life (and give you amnesia along the way).
