* ''{{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.

As you evert further and further, the world gets darker and darker until it resembles something rather hellish]].

* ''From Beyond'' by Creator/HPLovecraft. The main character's acquaintance invents a machine that makes it possible to see the creatures that lives in the different layers, but unfortunately, it works both ways.

* ''StarControl'' has Realspace as where we live. "Above" Realspace is Hyperspace, used for interstellar travel, and Quasispace, used for really fast interstellar travel and the place where the human friendly Arilou live. "Below" are... well you don't want to go *below*. The Androsynth appearently looked *below*, and now there are no Androsynth. Only Orz.

* ''MightyFlipChamps'' for DSiWare (and {{PSP}} minis) is all about solving puzzles by flipping from one reality to the next.

Added DiffLines:
* ''GhostbustersTheVideoGame'' ''kind of'' touches upon this, especially in the Public Library section, whose second half takes place in the library's Gozerian configuration (one of millions of theoretical configurations). The game doesn't really go far enough, but then again, your job as the Recruit is to ''keep the dimensions separate''.

* The universe of ''{{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]].

** In the magical theory of the ForgottenRealms, the Demiplane of Shadows has Shadow Fringe and Deep much like the Ethereal Plane has Border and Deep Ethereal. I.e. the Fringe is linked to every shadow in the given world, but being made of shadows, it's severely distorted. It's used almost exclusively for shadow-walking. ** ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' {{Birthright}} setting had the Shadow World. Halflings originally came from there and could return if necessary. ** The {{Ravenloft}} setting's Border Ethereal is more tangible than most, as a phenomenon called "ethereal resonance" allows ambient emotion in the Material plane to impose mood-appropriate motifs upon the Ether. Places where the Ethereal has been permeated by darker emotions can become sinkholes of evil, where malign forces fester and grow even nastier than is usual for the Land of Mists.

* The {{JAGS Wonderland}} setting uses this. Our reality is just the top level of a set of 8 "chessboards", which get weirder and more dangerous the deeper you go. While "down the rabbit hole," you could meet the Red Queen, the Mad Hatter, and other beings from the Creator/LewisCarroll story. * ArsMagica has Regio, which are localized versions of this -- alternative layered realities that only exist in one limited area. * In ''[[ProseDescriptiveQualities Dead Inside]]'', the "real world" is just the outer shell of reality, wrapped around the Spirit World, which is itself wrapped around [[TheLifestream the Source]]. These layers of reality act as buffers protecting the Source from the Void outside reality. It's possible for characters to become living (or technically, undying) cracks in the shell of reality by losing every last scrap of their souls and becoming a channel for the Void.
