* Miss Grimmwood's school in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7020049/4/Scooby-Doo-and-the-House-of-Monsters Scooby Doo and the House of Monsters]]'' is noted several times by Velma to not make any sense despite appearing to simply be a large two story house from the outside. The ceiling of the first floor is three stories up, doors right next to each other lead to the middle of different rooms, and Velma first reaches the room she's staying in by walking in a straight line for several minutes.

* In ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'':
** Discord's palace in [[BadFuture Dark World]] is this, being a constantly shifting, random, [[GeniusLoci living]] place with an entrance that can drive people insane. The most reliable way to find where you're going is to ''not look for it''. [[spoiler:It remains alive after being purified and became New Canterlot Castle, but loses many of its eldritch traits.]]
** The Spirit World is this, being a place beyond time where normal physics don't apply and full of AlienGeometries. While not sanity breaking, it can still not be properly comprehended by mortals.
** The domains of Concepts, which are [[GeniusLoci also them]]. They're so incomprehensible that even ''other Concepts'' can't fully understand a realm that isn't their own.

** The strangest location has to be the Palace Of the Dead (making a cameo from TacticsOgre); accessible only through a strange portal in the Black Shroud, the Palace of the Dead is an ever shifting maze filled with monsters, traps, and strange magical items that only seem to function within. The entire palace is filled with a gloom that saps the strength of anyone who enters, reducing them to Level 1 and rendering their equipment useless. Only by condensing one's life force into weapons and armor made of magic can one hope to survive. What's even stranger is how, while decending in the palace, players will rapidly gain levels to the point of exceeding their job level back in the 'real world'. Prior to Stormblood, this even meant learning spells and abilities meant for max level characters while still being low leveled in the "real world". The deeper you go in the Palace, the stranger things become; eventually falling apart into a series of pathways in a misty white void. The 200th floor features [[spoiler:a tranquil looking bench underlooking a tree, in a place completely devoid of enemies. Some players have joked that this is the Palace inviting you to be it's latest denizen. Thankfully it doesn't object if you refuse.]]

** And, as a bonus, [[Website/{{Bogleech}} the creator]] has said that it's not anything as banal as another planet or another dimension, but rather something humankind has no context whatsoever for. He compared trying to explain the reason why it exists to explaining to a Pilgrim the concept of a YouTubePoop without explaining computers, videos or electricity.

* Sarah Waite's (yes, the last name is meaningful) dorm room at [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]] in the WhateleyUniverse. It's even ''called'' the Lovecraft Room.

* In ''Warframe'' there is the Void, a dimension that can only be accessed through special keys. The area appears as a vast expanse of space and pure energy, with only the occasional abandoned Orokin tower [[spoiler: or the moon]] floating in it's space. It is the source of all energy that the Tenno use and it has close ties to the lost god-like race of the Orokin. Occasionally fissures in space leak void energy and allow the Orokin towers to use their mind controlling power extend their reach. [[spoiler: General Vor was even able to become a pure godlike being of energy with the use of a special void key.]]

* In ''Videogame/Metro2033'' and ''Videogame/MetroLastLight'', the nuclear war that wiped out human civilization on the surface also broke the barrier between heaven, hell, and reality. Throughout the series, there's a number of locations where they all blend together, some of which are benevolent, and others that are antagonist either through malice or [[PleaseDontLeaveMe their own isolated misery]]:
** In ''2033'', you can find the ghost of a ''subway train'' that endlessly moves across the tunnel before being crushed in a tunnel collapse. On the actual wreckage, ghosts sit on their morning commute.
** In ''Last Light'', the passenger plane that crashed into Moscow is haunted, and those that enter the cockpit see the plane's last moments as the disables plane plows into an apartment block being blown apart in nuclear fire.
** In ''Last Light'', there is a tunnel on the surface haunted by the corpses of the untold millions that died. Their ghostly arms try to grab anyone stepping through because they are lonely and afraid.
** The weirdest is The River of Fate in ''Last Light'', a GeniusLoci where the dead can place phone calls, skeletons stare you down as you pass by, oh and you can [[TimeTravel view the past with your buddies]].

* Most of WaysideSchool is just an AcademyOfAdventure and not this trope. Its nineteenth story, however, is a classroom that does not exist run by a teacher no one has heard of whose students do the same mind-numbingly repetitive task over and over again forever, and those unfortunate souls who wind up there eventually find that after a while they lose all memory of the world outside the nineteenth story. One character even sincerely speculates that it may be [[ThisIsntHeaven hell]].

* ''Videogame/HelloNeighbor'': The Neighbor's house, which becomes even more twisted and nonsensical with every update. As of Alpha 4, making it far enough into the house reveals rooms leading to nowhere, a fully-operating train supported by nothing, winding hallways, and all sorts of additional physics-defying hazards.
