The term "Hammerspace" originated in the ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' fanfiction community, ironically largely as a result of {{Fanon}}, as neither ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' nor the character most often associated with it (Akane Tendo) exhibited this trope to an excessive degree, though it was present in the source material.

# '''Game Hammerspace''': Used frequently in games--many of your inventory items are much too large or too heavy to be carried normally, and this is where they are stored until they are used. Game Hammerspace may or may not be infinite, depending on whether your inventory has a limited number of items, but it still holds many things without spoiling the lining of your coat.

* ''Disney/Aladdin'': In the Cave of Wonders, both Aladdin and Abu don't have anywhere to put the lamp, since Aladdin's pants don't have pockets, and Abu doesn't have anything big enough to hold it, so when both are preoccupied, the lamp disappears, and reappears when needed.

* Parodied in one episode of ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'': Melvin draws the previously invisible Millennium Rod from behind his back, saying:
-->"I will now use the Millennium Rod, which I keep clenched between my buttocks, to send this duel to the shadow realm!"
* In the fanmade ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' series ''AudioPlay/DoctorWhoovesAndAssistant'', Ditzy insists that ponies have "pockets" to store things, even when they're not wearing anything. The Doctor finds the idea absurd, until he accidentally pulls out his sonic screwdriver from one.

** Ruby and Yang's father sends them Zwei, the family corgi, by mail. Somehow, the dog recovers almost instantly from spending a goodly amount of time squished into a mail tube. That's not what makes this an example of hammerspace, though. That would be when Yang gives the tube a good shake, unloading a massive pile of dog food cans, plus a can opener.
* Characters in ''WebAnimation/LegoPirateMisadventures'' routinely pull guns, and in one case, a spear, out of nowhere.
* In ''WebAnimation/XRayAndVav'', Hilda reveals that X-Ray and Vav's "overundies" are essentially utility belts connected to another dimension, giving them access to all sorts of gadgets. X-Ray, then, decides to have ADateWithRosiePalms.

* ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'': The Inventories items Alice needs to "access" Wonderland appear out of nowhere.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Bionicle}}'' movies: The Toa keep all their supplies, tools, etc. in hammerspace, but it's never made clear ''where'' they put them (the animation just shows the objects retracting "into" their solid backside). The novels at least give them the benefit of carrying satchels. It's also implied in other media that this is where the Makuta kept their excess parts when shapeshifting into smaller forms.
* ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'': After Cinderella's fairy godmother offers to help her get ready for the ball, she searches around for her magic wand, before remembering that she "put it away." She then uses a special hand motion to make the wand appear out of thin air.

* ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'' (Disney version): Jiminy Cricket pulls out a pair of glasses that, while proportionate to his large head, are far too big for his back pocket.

The actual location of hammerspace is very hard to determine. There seems to be a great deal of it behind people's backs and on the opposite side ([[FourthWall from the camera]], that is) of [[BehindAStick thin things like lampposts and slender trees]]. It also hides in people's coats, closets, [[ClownCar clown cars]], large sacks, and occasionally [[TrouserSpace down their pants]].
