* On ''{{Pokemon}}'', you store the titular monsters inside one. And items inside another. The anime is more sensible; Ash just teleports his mons to Professor Oak.

* The ''Literature/{{Otherland}}'' series by TadWilliams is about a RagtagBunchOfMisfits who break into a virtual reality network (in a [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture time]] where [[{{Metaverse}} VR is commonplace]]) and become trapped there, unable to go offline. Furthermore, they can apparently be [[YourMindMakesItReal killed there too]]. One of the mysteries they must solve is why this is the case.

Added DiffLines:

* In the Franchise/StarTrekExpandedUniverse, Diane Duane's novel ''Literature/SpocksWorld'' has several historical interludes. In one, a member of a pre-Reformation Vulcan family-ship crew spends considerable time participating in the mind-nets, a telepathic/computer net virtual reality. When a mutiny on board ship sends it on an uncontrollable course, she retreats into the mind-nets until the ship is destroyed.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Gene Roddenberry's {{Series/Andromeda}}'', intrepid engineer Seamus Harper has an implant that allows him to connect to, and enter, computer systems. He often uses this to work on/in the titular starship's main computer. This is how he first meets the ship's AI, Andromeda ("Rommie").

** We get to visit The Grid, which is based on the film ''Film/TronLegacy'', in ''KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance''. Surprisingly, while Sora and Riku become computer programs with their own identity discs, [[spoiler: Xemnas and Young Xehanort]] remain flesh and blood.

* In ''{{Vr5}}'', Syd can draw the subconscious mind of anyone she calls on a telephone into virtual reality. As in ''Brainstorm'', this involves an acoustic modem. Which was already about ten years out of date when the show aired. Viewers actually watched the whole series eventually discovered that the much-maligned "acoustic modem" was ''not'' off-the-shelf technology, but AppliedPhlebotinum from a buried Secret Project.

''TabletopGame/{{Cyberpunk}} 2020'' shares with ''Shadowrun'' above the same ways to enter an Internet that works ''a la'' ''{{Neuromancer}}''. It also has virtual realities that, as usual, get better the more monies you've to spend on them.
