* This occurs in Diane Duane's ''Deep Wizardry'' (The second ''Literature/YoungWizards'' book) when, in a moment of despair, Nita calls out to one of her mentors, [[TheObiWan Carl]], and his partner, Tom is teleported out of the shower because he's taking Carl's calls. Note that it wasn't involuntary; it's more that Tom is such a nice guy that he'll literally drop everything to help one of his wizards.

** The whole plot of the series is kicked off by this, as Dream is summoned in place of Death right after he was returning home from doing battle in another realm. The fight left him weak, or he would never have been so easily captured or held for so long.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short ''A Lad in His Lamp'', WesternAnimation/BugsBunny finds Aladdin's Lamp, and keeps catching the genie at bad times (bathing, dining, on a date with a female genie...). Eventually he tells Bugs that [[BerserkButton if it happens one more time]], [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown he'll regret it]] -- and Bugs, GenreSavvy as he is, hands the lamp over to the bad guy.

* This happens for anyone on their second or later mission in the ''Anime/{{Gantz}}'' Manga and Anime adaptation. Though at least they got a sort of warning in the form of a tingle on the back of their neck. When the main character is transported for the second time (the first one being when he died), he's in the middle of changing.

* Part of what made the odd pairing of CableAndDeadpool a possibility is that after a mishap that mixed their genes, Cable's teleporter identifies to two of them as the same person, so whenever Cable teleports somewhere he not only brings Deadpool along for the ride no matter where he is and what he is doing, but the process ''[[TeleporterAccident physically merges them]]''. Luckily they both possess Deadpool's HealingFactor, so separating is unpleasant but non-lethal.
