** And then there's [[MindScrew horrid fish storming out of the sky, five wild event maelstroms spewing up pavement, the highest prime number hiding itself forever, flying horses carrying reinforced railings, huge children bouncing along the Southend seafront, a million-gallon vat of custard, a team of seven three-foot high market analysts, and an infinite number of monkeys who appear to have written]] ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}''.

** Wackyland is an actual place in ''TinyToonAdventures'', situated on the outer edges of Acme Acres. A few episodes focus on it, like one in which Babs briefly became their queen or the time Gogo Dodo took Montana Max to task for dumping sewage in it and spoiling his surreal surroundings.

** In ''The Changing Land'', the land around Castle Timeless is currently inhabited by the "mad" demi-god Tualua. Tualua is undergoing one of the "changes" common to his kind, which in this case causes the land surrounding the castle to be subject to all sorts of chaotic, unpredictable, and often-deadly effects.

* The first ''KingdomHearts'' game had the VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon, End of the World, created from the remains of worlds consumed by TheHeartless. The phenomena there includes: small islands floating in a purple void with spheres of darkness (which contain snowy canyons filled with treasure chests) constantly dropping on them; towers of rock that contain purple flames that can transport someone to other worlds (or [[spoiler:[[Disney/{{Fantasia}} Bald Mountain]]]]); an ornate door at the bottom of a cavern that opens up to [[spoiler: [[DoomedHometown Destiny Islands]], which splits open to reveal a valley made of purple rock]]; and a lot of [[WombLevel organic-looking structures]].
** There's also Hollow Bastion from the same game, which has also been consumed by darkness. The laws of physics don't work properly due to the world being damaged; Water acts as a solid surface and flows uphill, there are floating landmasses, and bubbles of water can levitate and transport people underwater, among other things.

* Whenever the [[CosmicHorror Dreamers]] are encountered in ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld'', you're sure to wind up with some craziness. Sometimes, it almost makes sense. Other times, you wind up with a delicious [[TimeyWimeyBall space-and-time pretzel]], with [[{{Metaphorgotten}} mustard and ranch dressing.]]
* At the very end of ''[[Videogame/{{Inca}} Inca II]]'', the protagonist winds up inside an asteroid comprised of his memories, as well as some sort of bomb which needs to be wrapped back in around itself. The maze alone is suitable enough to warp one's mind, but the puzzles - even for a game which has ''already'' been out there and back -- are sublime.

* In ''Literature/SpaceMarineBattles'' novels, xeno temples and daemon worlds alike have a bad habit of warping time and space around them like a scarf. AlienGeometries and YearOutsideHourInside abound.

In one Salamander story, an Eldar in cryostasis has found a way to use its power to control gravity outside, wrecking a Terminator team that was coming to poison him.

* In the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode "Where No One Has Gone Before", the Enterprise is transported to the Outer Rim of the universe, where reality breaks down and starts making crew members' memories real.
* The Delphic Expanse in ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise''. In some parts of it, the known laws of physics did not seem to apply. Once a Klingon ship emerged from the expanse with its entire crew anatomically inverted, but still alive.

** The fun thing about mathematics is that it doesn't have to reflect reality at all; it only usually does so because that's more convenient for most things. Want to redefine "continuity", make a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_line_%28topology%29 longer-than-infinite line]], work in fractional or infinitely many dimensions, or [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banach%E2%80%93Tarski_paradox split a sphere into two copies of itself]]? As long as you can formally define it and prove it works, there's no problem.
