* ''Film/DoctorStrange'' shows the Mirror Dimension, which looks like the mortal world put through a kaleidoscope. Sorcerers can do pretty much anything there, but the normal world stays unaffected. The titular hero tries to take advantage of this at one point to trap his enemy- [[OhCrap only to realize that his enemy is far more powerful in the Mirror Dimension.]]

* ''Series/VRTroopers'' had the Battle Grid for when they wanted to deal with [[{{Mooks}} the Skugs]] in relative privacy. For the actual MonsterOfTheWeek, the usual MO was for JB to return them to {{Cyberspace}}, which had a suspicious resemblance to ''Franchise/SuperSentai's'' BBCQuarry (''every time'').

* ''Series/VRTroopers'' had the Battle Grid for when they wanted to deal with [[{{Mooks}} the Skugs]] in relative privacy. For the actual MonsterOfTheWeek, the usual MO was for JB to use the Vortex command to return them to {{Cyberspace}}, which had a suspicious resemblance to ''Franchise/SuperSentai's'' BBCQuarry (''every time'').time''). Also, in the second season, new {{Dragon}} Despera had the ability to send the whole fight to another dimension where the monster was usually stronger with a lot of crazy powers it never had in the 'real' world. "[[OnceAnEpisode Escalate to Indigo Sector]]!" (And when the hero got the upper hand ''there,'' it was time to do it ''again.'' "Escalate to the Fractal Zone!")
**In the ''Franchise/MetalHeroes'' franchise, the villains' use of this trope is seen in several series. Where Power Rangers/Sentai villains make monsters grow, Metal Heroes villains send the fight to a trippy alternate dimension where the monster is three times stronger. As seen in modern movies and sentai team-ups, the original was ''Series/SpaceSheriffGavan'' and its "Makuu Space." In ''VR Troopers, Shaider'' footage gives us the Indigo Sector and Fractal Zone. ''Spielban'' footage of the franchise [[ReimaginingTheArtifact trying it differently]] by letting the ''hero'' initiate it to protect the city gives us JB's vortex. Even B-Fighter had it, but the Gaohm Zone was used infrequently and wasn't always somewhere that ''couldn't'' exist on Earth, so Beetleborgs didn't adapt it, instead giving a different explanation for the few instances of the battle ending up somewhere bizarre.

** Leaving is no problem--the inhabitants are all asleep (even the spiritually powerful ones, except maybe Isshin Kurosaki) Entering... well, maybe [[HandWave it's a Sunday]].
** Soul Society has devices that can alter memories, so who's to say they don't have a people-repellant device?

It's a featureless, normally empty and pitch-dark pocket dimension attached to the Matoran Universe, but the [[BrotherhoodOfEvil Brotherhood of Makuta]] uses it to store away the [[{{Kaiju}} Zivon]] when they don't need it.

* Parodied in ''Rat Sending Simulator'', with Jail Zone and Hell Zone. Jail Zone is a punishment for the player who commits too many crimes and lets their Crime Level reach 8. Hell Zone is a punishment for players who Seek A Certain Tally of Rats and drink the Hellacious Brew. As an AffectionateParody of ''VideoGame/FallenLondon'', these are both references to content in that game.[[note]]Jail Zone parodies New Newgate Prison (and Menaces in general, really), and Hell Zone parodies Seeking Mr Eaten's Name.[[/note]] There's also Debt Zone, which would ostensibly punish players who accumulated too much gambling debt, but that function doesn't seem to be implemented yet, and the only way to enter Debt Zone is to escape Hell Zone.
