* The protagonist of ''VisualNovel/TimeHollow'' has the ability to open these using his "Hollow Pen". He's not the only one, and any changes made by one Pen user cause "flashbacks" in others, giving them new places and times to open holes. Indeed, the BigBad changing things shortly after Ethan gets his Pen is what starts the whole plot. [[spoiler: And it turns out that anyone who steps through them will be removed from the flow of time, stopping them from aging from then on.]]

* There are a few user-made maps in ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'' that use Hammer's world portal function like this. Most of them are just proof of concept levels, though.

* ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' has a whole bunch of these portals going to multiple "locations" in time, and always in sync. This doesn't explain, however, why the Epoch itself is on SanDimasTime.

* The {{Cool Gate}}s of the 'Literature/MorgaineCycle'' can do this as a side effect of their PortalNetwork function. Unfortunately, anyone who uses them to create a TimeParadox triggers a civilization destroying TimeCrash, which is why Morgaine is on her quest to destroy all the gates.

* One of the main mechanics of ''[[Franchise/{{Onimusha}} Onimusha 3: Demon Siege]]'' is Time Dungeons. Locations where the 2 main characters explore simultaneously with 1 in the modern day and the other in the Feudal Japan era. The game's ExpositionFairy is able to use mirrors contained in those dungeons to traverse the 2 time zones, bringing essential information and tools with her. Though it does not seem that time continues to flow in her absence while in those dungeons. Outside of those dungeons however time does indeed flow allowing the character she is not with to move through the world and arrive at the same location.
