* ''VideoGame/EternalDarkness'', a game already overloaded with horror thanks to basically being "Franchise/ResidentEvil meets [[Creator/HPLovecraft Call of Cthulhu]]: The Video Game", has an enemy type called Trappers. If the scorpion-ish enemies manage to zap you with a burst of electricity from their tails, you're instantly teleported to the Trapper Dimension, a dark area with a few ancient walkways and columns floating in nothingness, mysterious magic portals that lead to unknown locations, and monstrous enemies who want to tear you limb from limb and will cause your in-game sanity to drop just by looking at them. Unlike most enemies of this class, they do provide a few benefits though: a single Trapper dies upon teleporting you so it won't be there when you return, and the Trapper Dimension has one-use {{Mana}} recharge points for one of your three meters.

** The mid-boss of Explorer's Crypt in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames Oracle of Seasons]]'', the Poe Sisters. The room has four torches which the poes continuously attempt to blow out (and which Link conversely has to re-light). Once all torches are out, Link gets booted back to the dungeon entrance.

** And he was recycled for the first dungeon of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening''. The seventh's dungeon's boss is a bird that tries to knock you off the platform you battle it on but only to the previous screen, [[OffscreenVillainDarkMatter which is still enough time for it to fully regenerate its health]].
*** The eighth dungeon's mid-boss, Blaino, will straight-up Wall Master your ass back to the dungeon entrance if his uppercut connects. The eighth dungeon is huge, so it only takes one trip back to the entrance for players to really, ''really'' hate Blaino.

** Also in Gogo's Cave and the BonusDungeon of the GBA Remake, there're these greenclad characters that, for no coherent reason, are hanging out on a series of jumping bridge and if you touch them they push you off. In Gogo's Cave you can quickly get back to the jumping bridges from where you fell off, but in the BonusDungeon you have to complete a whole goddamn subdungeon filled with mini-bosses to just restart the puzzle. Since they're green and they wear hats, one walkthrough writer decided to name them the Green Asshats.

* A rare TV example would be the Weeping Angels from the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "Blink". They don't send you to a specific place though, no, they just send you back in time to before you were born and feed off the energy of the potential life you would've lived.
--> "The Weeping Angels, the only psychopaths in the universe to kill you kindly."



* A rare non-video game example: ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' has an episode where the Riddler has constructed a maze, complete with mechanical {{Wall Master}}s that behave like the ones in [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Zelda.]] Batman uses them to his advantage and rigs it to bring himself straight to the Riddler.
