* On ''Series/MonstersVsAliens'', Dr. Cockroach tries to invent a teleportation device in short notice to use to get around long distances during missions, but mostly to show up his rival, alien ChildProdigy Sqweep. He manages to create a working wormhole, but unfortunately, it can only go a distance of twenty feet. Also, it turns out to be lactose intolerant, somehow. He tries to pass it off anyway, and HilarityEnsues.

* In ''Film/{{Interstellar}}'', Cooper finds out that NASA detected an artificial wormhole near Saturn decades prior and has sent a dozen manned missions through it to map out the space on the other side and determine the habitability of the planets there. This version appears as a sphere (when Cooper points out that he expected something different, the onboard physicist explains that the wormhole is a projection of multi-dimensional space on our limited three-dimensional perception. He even provides the classic example of folding a piece of paper and puncturing it with a pencil, explaining that a hole in three dimensions is a sphere). Visually, the wormhole appears to distort space around it, and the other galaxy can be seen through it.

Visually, the wormhole appears to distort space around it, and the other galaxy can be seen through it. Apparently, the wormhole has multiple destinations, as it's mentioned that twelve planets have been discovered on the other side, while only three are present in the chosen system. Presumably, other destinations are reached by entering the wormhole at a different vector.

[[folder:Comic Books]] * The only time a wormhole came up in the StarWarsExpandedUniverse was in ''The Phantom Affair'', an arc in the ComicBook/XWingSeries comics. A superweapon known as the gravitic polarizing device made the enemy ships and a portion of the asteroid belt ringing a planet simply disappear, with one of the startled pilots saying that it looked like a wormhole had opened up. ** In "The Glove of Darth Vader", a wormhole created by the exploding reactor is responsible for transporting Darth Vader's indestructible glove from the exploding wreckage of the Death Star II to the oceans of Mon Calamari.

* So far the only device capable of creating a wormhole in ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' has the design flaw of allowing the gravity on one side of the portal effect the other, meaning that trying to use it would lead to worlds being destroyed.

* In the backstory to the original ''Videogame/PlanetSide'', wormholes are naturally occurring phenomena but fizzle out after picoseconds. The OneWorldOrder Terran Republic possesses the mean to force these random wormholes open and stabilize them, though they have no control over the destination. Auraxis and all its [[{{Precursors}} advanced alien technology]] including [[ResurrectiveImmortality rebirthing]] was found in one such wormhole. Mysteriously, the wormhole back to Earth collapsed right as the Republic fleet was preparing to travel the wormhole stomp down the civil war on Auraxis, permanently cutting off the colonists; the war still rages to this day, and you are one of the combatants.

* ''AWrinkleInTime'' has Tesseracts, which basically function as wormholes. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tesseract Real Tesseracts]] have nothing to do with this, being a geometric concept related to cubes (basically, a Tesseract is to a cube what a cube is to a square). Wormholes were not topical at the time. * ''QuantumGravity'': There are portals between realms used to get from one to the other. Or into I-space.

* The portal created by the Tesseract/Cosmic Cube in ''Film/{{The Avengers}}'' is a bit more conventional than the above, but no less spectacular: a circular doorway in the sky to wherever it is that the Chitauri come from, spewing out AliensAndMonsters to attack [[BigApplesauce New York]].

* In ''ReBoot'', perfectly spherical "portals" connect different systems together. The "other side" is visible from all angles of viewing, distorted by the curvature of space around the opening--this is arguably the most realistic depiction of wormholes in any TV series, bar none. (Rather ironic, as ''ReBoot'' [[CyberSpace doesn't take place in the physical world]] and so could have easily justified a wholly ''unrealistic'' depiction.)

[[folder: Live-Action TV ]] * ''BlackHoleHigh'' originally called it a black hole, though they later speculated that it was actually a wormhole and preferred that term, despite occasionally reverting to the less accurate term for its mnemonic transfer ("Black Hole" also sounds a lot like "Blake Holsey", the name of the school). Wormholes can do [[GreenRocks just about anything]] in this show.

* ''{{Space 1999}}''. Moonbase falls into a 'black sun' and, as per the black hole/white hole theory, comes out a white hole. Intact. Without everyone and everything being compressed into tiny tiny tiny pieces.

[[folder: Video Games ]] * ''{{Spore}}'' treats its black holes as wormholes, and in fact often names one as the other and vice versa. * ''{{X-COM}} Interceptor'' features black holes all over the sector that can wreck havoc on your ships and probes. Playing through the game and researching the alien intentions reveals that [[spoiler: there is exactly one black hole that is actually a worm hole to a pocket solar system, where the aliens are constructing their doomsday weapon, and the game becomes a race against time to discover the method to use the wormhole to reach the pocket dimension and destroy the weapon before it's completed.]]

[[folder: Tabletop Games ]] * In {{Starfire}}, every accessible star system is home to one or more naturally-occurring "warp points." A warp point provides an FTL link to another specific warp point in another star system (or, occasionally, to a warp point floating deep in interstellar space). Sometimes, one of the two warp points that forms a warp-link may be "closed" (totally undetectable unless you happen to see something coming out of it), which means there may be undiscovered warp points lurking about in any star system. (This created a dire threat to the Terran Federation during Interstellar War IV.) * In ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'', Zmei (Wyrm dragons) can tear a hole in the fabric of reality and escape to Malfeas. Any creature who follows the Zmei into this portal acquires a permanent derangment and runs a high risk of insanity.
