* The Hedge in ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'' can serve as a means of more expedient travel between long distances, provided one is willing to enter an ever-shifting maze and brave the dangers therein. True to the warped logic of [[TheFairFolk its owners]], the time it takes to get somewhere depends more on [[TravelingAtTheSpeedOfPlot what happens along the way]] than on actual distance, meaning that getting from Miami to Tucson might require more time (and bloodshed) than from Miami to London. In the Infinite Macabre setting, it's made explicit that yes, the Hedge can be used for interstellar travel, though the base time for navigation is longer.

Oh, and getting a ship back out requires finding a portal that said ship can fit through, which is implied to be a rare occurance.

* The Void in ''VideoGame/{{Warframe}} is described by the Orokin as "...a blinding night. The hellspace where our science and reason failed," and it seems to live up to this description aptly. Space seen through the windows of the vacant (kind of) windows of the Orokin installations is that of an inverted sky the emptiness of space becomes blinding white and stars black, noble gasses that we know of on Earth become solid and crystalline when exposed to Void energies and those exposed to it that it doesn't kill outright are left corrupted and broken.

* RaymondEFeist's ''[[Literature/TheRiftwarCycle Riftwar]]'' books have a form of magical hyperspace, which happens to be filled with a race of precursors that even some Gods fear. Opening a rift is a really, really bad idea.

* In ''Literature/HyperspaceDemons'' by Jonathan Moeller, hyperspace is inhabited by alien intelligences which can possess humans and grotesquely warp both their bodies and minds. Also, merely looking out into light of hyperspace can inflict madness.

* ''Literature/VoidDomain'' has a handful of methods for instant transportation. None are completely safe. Infernal Walk is literally a slingshot through Hell.

** In the Marvel ''[[ComicBook/TheTransformers Transformers]]'' comics, there's also at least one instance of monsters living in the void between dimensions used as transport medium. When they got their hands on Ramjet, they tortured, unmade, and remade him until they got bored and tossed him back. The result: a not-all-there Ramjet who is simultaneously CursedWithAwesome and BlessedWithSuck: Being "tormented" at the hands of these creatures resulted in his becoming Unicron-class powerful, and keeping a connection to the void that gives him all kinds of RealityWarper tricks (above and beyond what he had during his time as an agent of Unicron). Thanks, evil extradimensional god dudes! On the other hand, he ''isn't'' quite sane, and it's all he can do to hold his own atoms together. His presence is poisonous to reality around him. Not so much fun. *** In the IDW Comics "Infestation 2" crossover arc, ''[[OhCrap they get loose]]'' and are every bit as horrible as they sound. And are apparently the inspiration for the CthulhuMythos. It doesn't seem especially clear that the creatures from this IDW megacrossover are the same as the ones from the much earlier ''TransformersCybertron'' based story, but Wiki/TFWiki seems to be sure about it.

** Note that hyperspace was not instantly lethal. When breaking out, Elizabeth accidentally became stranded in hyperspace. While she was in deadly danger, there was a reasonable amount of time to deduce what had happened to her and mount a rescue.
