* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': The Dark Judges possess orbs that allow travel between dimensions, which they stole from a group of aliens who made the mistake of visiting their world. Justice Department later reverse engineers the technology to create their own dimensional teleporters.



* ''{{Crossworlds}}'' has a staff which can get the main characters from the odd world from which the staff comes and back to what appears to be our Earth.

* In ''Series/StargateAtlantis'', an alternate [=McKay=] builds an "alternate reality drive" which has this function. The only problem is, it doesn't have an off switch or any way to control which reality it jumps into. This leads to one universe's worth of main characters being stranded in the wrong reality and another universe's worth dying of starvation before they can figure it out, before the actual main characters bootstrap on their research and discover a way to make it backtrack through the realities it came from (so they can at least get home, if not actually exploit the drive).

* ''Series/StargateSG1'' has the "quantum mirror", which makes a few appearances in early episodes before being destroyed offscreen, on O'Neill's orders. In one episode, Daniel accidentally uses it to travel to another universe; in a later episode, alternate-universe versions of Carter and Kowalski come back through it, looking for refuge from the Go'a'uld invasion fleet that just arrived on Earth in their universe.

* ''{{Sliders}}'' had the "Timer", several of which were actually used by the main characters (the original, the one from Egyptian World, and Colonel Rickman's Timer). The Timer's job was to open wormholes between universes, and also to [[PhlebotinumBreakdown malfunction]] [[MacGuffin or get stolen]], [[PlotDevice providing half the series' plots]].

* On ''TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'', the Turtles use the transdimensional portal, a technology that allows travel to alternate universes. It is most commonly used in the 1987 cartoon series. Another approach is used in ''TurtlesForever''; the teenage mutant ninja turtles use a dimensional portal stick to go to the 1987 universe.

* In the ''{{Paratime}}'' series by H. Beam Piper, the means of traveling through timelines is a conveyor using the Ghaldron-Hesthor field-generator. Conveyors are fixed in place, which means that as they travel through timelines, they may end up inside nuclear reactors or other hazards or be caught in warfare (a common activity on at least one timeline in nearly every trip, Paratimers note). Weakening of the transposition field is a concern of Paratimers.

* ''Literature/TheLongEarth'' by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter. Interdimensional travel is performed by the use of a Stepper, the designs for which appeared online one day. Its components are common enough to be bought from the local shops. And include a potato. [[spoiler:Except it turns out the Stepper device is more to do with providing a kind of mental focus - the protagonist learns he can Step without a device. ]]. Also unique is the fact that, unlike most other examples where parallel universes may diverge in recent history but are still recognisably similar to our own Earth, the parallel universes of the Long Earth are wildernesses devoid of human life. Only our own Earth evolved humans.

* This is Uchiha Obito's main Mangekyo Sharingan ability. He can use his eye to travel to an alternate dimension at will. He can even send parts of his body when in danger so he could dodge at the last second, giving the illusion that he is an IntangibleMan.

IntangibleMan. He instinctually teleports the portion of his body that intersects with an attack into an alternate dimension. He can even reach other dimensions, but it costs a ridiculous amout of stamina and chakra to do that.
