* Another early example comes from the NES ''[[Videogame/ANightmareOnElmStreetNES A Nightmare on Elm Street]]'' game. While you're exploring the regular town, a sleep gauge slowly drains away. If you don't keep it recharged with coffee, you'll eventually shift into the dream world. On the bright side, you can then change into one of four superpowered forms. On the not so bright side, the setting becomes darker and more twisted, with water turned into blood and the enemies stronger and now bearing Freddy's[[TradeSnark ™]] features. And once you're in the dream world, another, unseen timer begins to count down until Freddy's[[RunningGag ™]] IronicNurseryRhyme theme begins to play. If you haven't woken up by the time it finishes, you'll end up trapped in a RecurringBoss fight with Freddy]] himself.

* [[BigBad The Master of Darkness]] of ''TheQuestportChronicles'' turns most of the world into a shadowy, distorted reflection of what it normally is. It's implied that staying in the Darkness for protracted periods of time may be fatal.
* The [[TheSlenderManMythos Slender Man]] (or other various things in the mythos) will occasionally end up teleporting the characters to some very strange places, and it's sometimes very unclear whether a given place is one of these or not.

*''Anime/DigimonUniverseApplimonsters'' has the same idea: an AR Field looks like the real world as rendered by a computer that's not very good at it. The colors are warped, the sky looks like the Digital World sky as seen in the Xros Wars era, and there are places where it looks as if the world is a hologram that's breaking up, letting you see a strange purple void behind it. The real world's technology is affected; if an attack hits a building in the AR Field, expect technology in the building to go haywire, power to go out, and even things like cell phones to stop working.
