* The universe of ''{{LightNovel/Slayers}}'' has an astral plane, in which the spiritual projections of mortals exist. Contrariwise, the (already very powerful) physical manifestations of supernatural creatures like demons can best be described as a mere projection of their ''astral'' body. Bundled together, said universe is but one of four parallel “worlds” separated by the golden sea of chaos, A.K.A. [[spoiler: The Lord of Nightmares]].

* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'': According to Tsuchimikado Motoharu, {{Heaven}} and {{Hell}} both exist in the exact same location as the physical plane, only at "different wavelengths", with Heaven being a higher frequency, and Hell a lower frequency. Humans of the world can detect neither, just as the otherworldly denizens cannot detect the opposite realm and its inhabitants. Only when angels and demons go into the realm in between, the physical world of the living, that the denizens can detect each other.
** The [[PocketDimension Imaginary Number District]] functions in a similar manner: AnotherDimension formed from the combined AIM of every esper in Academy City, it exists in the same location as the city, can be trasversed, and even brought forth into the real world.
** Later, it is revealed that [[spoiler:the series' world/universe/reality itself as it is normally perceived has various layers, known as Phases, over it acting like "filters" and affecting how it appears. The origin of this phenomenon is the various mythologies and religions throughout human history, through an unknown process, having had the effect of creating layers over the world: HeavenAndHell, TheUnderworld, the LandOfFaerie, Mount Olympus, Asgard, etc. And ''beneath'' them all is apparently a "Pure World", called such because it is a world of science untouched and unaffected by religion. And Aleister is trying to reach it...]]



** In ''Film/SilentHill'' the film, there's the real world, where the husband and detective are; there's "ashy" Silent Hill, where Rose and Sybill end up, which is populated by monsters and trapped [[spoiler: ghosts of]] cultists. Then there's the "air raid siren" DarkWorld, which has more and tougher monsters and is generally nightmarish and near impossible to survive in for long.

* ''MightyFlipChamps'' for UsefulNotes/DSiWare (and [[UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable PSP]] minis) is all about solving puzzles by flipping from one reality to the next.

* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'':
** There's the Astral, which is a SpiritWorld and a DreamWorld that have locations which basically correspond to locations in the Material World.
** There's also a Cyberspace connecting all connected technology, although, airgapped technology may not be accessible.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Submachine}}'' series, especially ''The Plan'' and to a lesser extent ''The Temple'' (other games ''mention'' the layers, but these two are the only ones where the player travels between them - unless that's what's happening in ''The Loop''.)

''The Exit'' reveals that [[spoiler: there are an infinite number of sublayers, which is why you can see evidence of other explorers, but never actually meet them]].

* The ''MegaManStarForce'' series has the EM world, which consists of the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin EM waves]] of the normal universe. Geo Stelar can see it from the normal world with his [[SeeThruSpecs special goggles]]. To get in, he has to find a portal and become Mega Man.

* The PC adventure game ''TorinsPassage'' takes place on a layered planet. The protagonist starts out on the surface but must journey through the "lands below", different worlds on different levels below the surface, in order to save his parents from an evil sorceress.

* In ''TimeFcuk'', the majority of levels have 2 layers although many user-made levels can have up to 3 which the player interacts with.

* ''{{Eversion}}'' allows you to "evert" at several points (and forcibly everts you on occasion). Eversion is basically moving up or down a layer, which all have different properties, such as solid clouds, time stop, hazardous plants, etc. [[spoiler:There are eight layers to this world, and only the top three layers are "friendly". As you evert further and further, the world gets darker and darker until it resembles something rather hellish]].

* The ''TabletopGame/NightBane'' setting has multiple layers to it. One in the form of the [[DarkWorld Nightlands]]. The Nightlands are a ''[[MirrorWorld reflection]]'' of the real world, and is overall ruled over by the [[EvilOverlord Night Lords]]. There is also the [[SpiritWorld Astral Plane]], which itself has three levels. The first is endless mists that is considered the ''surface'', the second level where one can find the denizens, [[PocketDimension various realms]], and cities made of spirit energy, and the last level known as the [[VoidBetweenTheWorlds the Void]] which is home to [[BigCreepyCrawlies Demon Locusts]] that want to consume...''everything'', as well as various mysteries such as [[EldritchStarship Void Ships]] and powerful [[AncientArtifact artifacts]]. Then you have the [[DreamWorld Dream Stream]], which is...''[[WorldOfWeirdness strange]]'' to put it mildly. Being the realm of dreams and nightmares, one can run into all kinds of [[EldritchAbomination things]] in it. In addition, because of the way the realm works, what happens in it can/will [[YourMindMakesItReal affect you]] and people in the real world who are asleep.
