* ''Fanfic/ConstantsAndVariables'': When Elizabeth [[spoiler:opens up a tear to cushion Harry’s fall at the quidditch match]], Harry accidentally loses one of his fingers much like Elizabeth. Due to the nature of the wound, medical witches were unable to grow it back and it applies his budding tear-powers.

The opposite of a TeleFrag (but no less deadly). See also TeleporterAccident, for more general mishaps. A NoFlowPortal may be designed to have this sort of effect on the unwary.

* In ''PastwatchTheRedemptionOfChristopherColumbus'', the temporal displacement field forms a perfect sphere, cutting off anything that crosses it. They deliberately avert this trope by placing the travelers in a metal vessel just slightly smaller than the field. That means the inner layer of the vessel is transported with them, but it's thin enough to tear through pretty easily.

** At the end of the cold open of ''Film/ThorRagnarok'', Thor gets beamed up by the Bifrost just as a dragon is about to devour him. The dragon's head comes along for the ride, without the rest of the dragon.



** In ''Series/StargateUniverse'', Eli Wallace had to stick his hand into the event horizon of a gate to deliberately hold it open, so that the rest of the team could escape. From the look on his face and his hesitance to perform the act, he was clearly aware of what might happen if the safety feature didn't work as promised.
** Jack O'Neill did the same thing at least once in ''Stargate SG-1'', but ''he'' held the gate open by keeping his ''gun'' in the gate, not his hand. In "Shades of Grey", however, O'Neill held the gate open with his arm up inserted up to the elbow.
** The "kawoosh" when the Stargate opens is actually the matter[=/=]energy[=/=]whatever of the gate in an unstable form, meaning if you enter it, no two of your atoms end up attached to each other. Portal cut? Try portal ''disintegrate.''

Actually used as a funeral ceremony by the Tok'ra (since it has the advantage of leaving nothing for the Goa'uld to revive and/or interrogate).



** In one strange but relatively harmless SG-1 example, a group of Jaffa are retreating through a Stargate in a panic, and the gate shuts down just as the last one runs through; the end of the [[BoomStick staff weapon]] he was carrying then clatters to the floor, having been severed by the portal as it disengaged. There was no reason for the gate to shut down so suddenly - as discussed, safeguards exist to prevent just that - but it underscored just how much of a rush the Jaffa were in to get out of there; the equivalent of dropping something as you run out a door and then not even bothering to notice or pick it up.
** Then there's the ring transporters. What's in the rings on one side is exchanged with what's in the rings on the other. The only time we see this used to cause bodily harm is in the original movie (trapped partially under the rings by O'Neill, Ra's {{Dragon}} gets relieved of his head) but there's one awesome scene where someone teleports from underwater. When the effect finishes, there's a nice cylindrical column of water surrounding the characters when they arrive at the destination teleporter, which immediately falls away once nothing's holding it together.

** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS10E1TheThreeDoctors "The Three Doctors"]], a green blob teleports the Doctor and part of the building he's in through a black hole, and later the rest of the building. The two parts of the building arrive in different locations. At the end, when everything is sent back to "where it came from", the two parts of the building are re-assembled, apparently without any permanent damage.
** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E5TimeHeist "Time Heist"]], the bomb left for the team is a dimensional shift bomb, displacing a roughly cube-shaped section of floor for the team to escape through, which then returns to normal space about a minute later, leaving no trace behind.

* In one ''Webcomic/{{Nodwick}}'' comic the author was showing fans at a con that he got his ideas from simply looking through an interdimensional portal by pulling Nodwick halfway through. Then guest of honor William Shatner insisted they "divert all power to the deflector shields" and the con staff decided to humor him.

* Played for Laughs in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo'', where the bumbling apprentice genie Babu tries to make himself disappear in response to the MonsterOfTheWeek appearing. Only his top half does so, causing his lower half to run off without him. (It doesn't hurt him, but it's rather embarrassing.)
