* ''Series/TheFortyFourHundred'': people are abducted individually at various times and places throughout the 20th century, but all 4,400 of them get teleported back simultaneously to the same location.
* ''Series/{{Andromeda}}'' has the entire solar systems of Tarn Vedra and Ral Parthia being teleported off to a pocket dimension to hide them from a Magog invasion.
* ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}''. 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.

* One time, in ''[[Comicbook/TheUltimates Ultimate Comics: Avengers 3]]'', the Triskelion was facing a vampire invasion. So Captain America used the hammer of Thor ({{Mjolnir}}) 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!!).

* In the novel ''Literature/JonathanStrangeAndMrNorrell'', Mr. Strange teleports an entire European city to North America to save it being attacked in the Napoleonic wars. He remembered to put it back (although some of the regiments, who deserted, were not brought back with it). However, he neglected to move another city (moved to make it match the maps) back to where it originally was. He also switched the places of two churches, mostly to demonstrate the theory, and forget to put them back.

* In a ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' ExpandedUniverse novel, a glitch in a race's planet-wide transporter system causes anyone on the planet to be transporter to a parallel universe every few hours. The real problem starts when one of the universes does not have this planet, so billions of people get dumped into outer space every few hours. Cue the Crew of that universe's ''Voyager'' trying to figure out (and failing) how to keep billions alive without a planet.

** An Eliatrope portals are normally small and don't last long, but can be significantly improved with practice, preparation, and power. With at least several hours of preparation [[spoiler:and the Eliacube's power]], Quilby makes an enormous portal [[spoiler:[[HellGate into the Shushu world]]]]. After the TimeSkip, Yugo is able to clear out a crowded room by teleporting almost everyone outside and, with help of several [[AmplifierArtifact Dofus]], [[spoiler:teleports a ''mountain'' into the sky so the battle won't damage the Earth (this [[ColonyDrop horribly backfires]])]].

* 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''.
