* One time, in ''[[Comicbook/TheUltimates Ultimate Comics: Avengers 3]]'', the Triskelion was facing a vampire invasion. So Captain America used the hammer of Thor (Mjölnir) to teleport them all to the Iranian desert, were the vampires were killed by the daylight. The reason for not teleporting the Triskelion into a desert area of an ally (e.g. Israel, Egypt, Saudi-Arabia) but to that of an enemy ("Great Satan", you remember) is, that it would've been less badass (You appear in broad daylight on enemy territory and they can DO NOTHING except for Ahmadinejad having a fit!!).

* One of the earliest examples of the transported-through-time version is Creator/MurrayLeinster's 1919 story "The Runaway Skyscraper", in which a Manhattan tower block and its 2000 inhabitants are transported millennia into the past.

* In ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'', one of the secondary skills of a {{Summon|Magic}}er is the ability to teleport several targets to multiple locations. Lutecia demonstrates this in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'', when she teleports an army of [[MechaMook Gadget Drones]] into the perimeters of a [[TheFederation TSAB]] facility.

* The Xen creatures in ''VideoGame/HalfLife1'' could be considered an example, but the Combine in ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'' are definitely one: they teleport massive armies to Earth and take over within hours. According to some interpretations, the Combine even teleported in the Citadel, their massive headquarters building. Also in Episode 2, the Aperture Science Borealis might count, since it's an entire ship, and a reference to the Philadelphia Experiment.

An even larger scale teleportation is hinted in game and stated in an development book: sea level have drastically receded across the Earth because the Combine [[PlanetLooters drained the ocean]] by opening a giant portal ''underwater''.

* MikhailAkhmanov's ''Dick Simon'' duology is based on the premise of humanity discovering the Rampant, a method of instantaneous interstellar travel that, with enough energy, can move entire cities to other worlds. This is exactly what happens. Most major cities get moved to newly-discovered habitable worlds in order to "give people space". The US and Canada move to Columbia, the European nations move to Europa (not the moon), Russia moves to Russia, the Latin American countries move to Latmerica, etc. The polluted Earth is abandoned (with massive craters and inland seas where there were cities), except by those countries too poor to afford to use the Rampant.

* ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}''. Although actually an example of an [[FasterThanLightTravel FTL drive]], the moment when [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Galactica dives into the atmosphere]] of New Caprica, then jumps out moments before it {{Colony Drop}}s the entire settlement, could apply. One good touch is there's a tremendous ''CRACK!'' and immediate whirlwind as air rushes back into the space where the massive battlestar once was.

* In ''[[FanFic/SovereignGFCOrigins Origins]]'', a ''MassEffect''[=/=]''StarWars''[[spoiler:[=/=]''[=Borderlands=]''[=/=]''[=Halo=]'']] MassiveMultiplayerCrossover, Force Travel is used on a huge scale, moving a whole fleet including a [[MileLongShip Star Dreadnaught]] to ''another galaxy''. This induces a HeroicRROD in the user, but gets the heroes out of a very nasty situation. [[spoiler:It also marks the beginning of that person's [=Heel-Face Turn=].]]
