* In the ''WebOriginal/SCPFoundation'', SCP-866 is a supercomputer that happens to be much stronger than it should have been, and the Foundation realizes its MundaneUtility as an exceptional way of simulating physics and other properties of the universe. The catch? 20% of its resources (which are in the zettabytes, by the way) go towards four "test worlds." The computer itself probably exists elsewhere in TheMultiverse, with the version built in the 21st century of our world being its vessel, in a way. When a doctor tries to input some programming to shift a city in the second test world slightly, he winds up [[EpicFail sending our version of said city into outer space.]][[note]]Assuming test world #2 isn't our world, which is suggested.[[/note]] Investigation revealed that [[FailedASpotCheck he made a rounding error; the same type of error managed to]] [[DisproportionateRetribution kill the last person who made one.]] Speaking of which, it's also CrazyPrepared to do all sorts of things to the people who try to cut off its power, for obvious reasons.

Being partially attached means that you "jack in" or otherwise connect, and you then experience whatever the computer system shows you, typically providing audio and visual quality at the maximum of human perception. It might go further and give you taste, touch, smell and more, or as Creator/DennisMiller once put it, "You know, folks, the day an unemployed ironworker can lie in his [=BarcaLounger=] with a Foster's in one hand and a channel flicker in the other and fuck [=supermodel=] Claudia Schiffer for $19.95, it's gonna make [[CrackIsCheaper crack]] look like Sanka[[note]]a brand of instant decaffeinated coffee[[/note]]." (More than one sci-fi story has this happen: Humanity dies out because everyone is so busy [[http://dilbert.com/strips/comic/1994-10-14/ having hot virtual sex]] that there's no-one left to make any actual babies.)

* This is used to better display the skills of the various team leaders during the [[WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} Vytal Festival]] in ''Roleplay/LordsAmongTheAshes.'' They are all put into a position of leadership in a virtual world for what is supposed to be [[YearInsideHourOutside ten weeks in-sim (ten days in real life)]]. Unfortunately, Cinder's computer virus [[GoneHorriblyWrong corrupts the program]], making what should have been a marginally challenging ten weeks into an almost [[DeathWorld hellishly difficult]] ''ten years.''

* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' gives us Space Paranoids, the ''{{Tron}}'' level. That's without mentioning [[spoiler: the virtual Twilight Town [=DiZ=] and Riku trap Roxas in, which Sora and the gang later visit. Weirdly, you have to be go through the latter to unlock the final dungeon - the heroes enter a portal in the virtual mansion's basement, pass through "Betwixt & Between" and end up at the Organization's home, apparently flesh and blood again.]]

* Merry, in the ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'', is a cyberpath who can interface with computer networks simply by being within a few feet of a powerful CPU hooked to the network. When she does this, she's "in" the computer network. She meets a Whateley Academy kid who can do almost as much as she can, but who prefers the ''{{Tron}}'' visuals for his version of cyberspace.
