* ''Videogame/FallenLondon'': The Neath in general has tons of weirdness, like honey that physically teleports you into your own dreams, people selling their souls in bottles like nothing and death being a bit of a temporary inconvenience. But the Iron Republic takes this to new levels; the laws of reality are nonexistant, very, very malleable or ''literally'' debatable, changing at the behest of its rather insane inhabitants' protests. The laws of mathematics change so often doing any sort of accounting is irritating, and figuring out theorems is blatantly impossible. Make a convincing argument and it'll rain upwards just because you asked, until someone else asks for something blatantly impossible instead, which will happen anyways. Why all this chaos? Because this is the Iron Republic's idea of true freedom: There shall be no law. This includes things like physics.
** The Iron Republic retains its weirdness in ''VideoGame/SunlessSea'', to the point where even trying to write a report about it for the Admiralty causes the paragraphs to bud eyes and the paper will either go blank or catch fire when handed in to the Admiralty, but you can also visit Irem. Irem is a place where time isn't entirely stable, so every time it's discussed, the tenses used in the sentences change at random. You can throw a skull into a pool to see visions and journey into the dimension behind mirrors by paying someone a sack of coffee beans.

* More so than most of the other episodes in the series, 'A World With No Sadness, Baby' in ''Anime/SpaceDandy'' is nonsensical in the extreme. The majority of it takes place in some bizarre limbo world inhabited by completely unexplained creatures. A choir of caricatured bears with disembodied human hands that, despite not having mouths, carry on conversation in abstract phrasing by singing? Unexplained. An otherwise normal looking lady that has the front half of a cat sticking out of her chest - and speaks through that cat's mouth instead of her own? Unexplained. That's not even getting into all the minutiae of the setting.

** In the same author's ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfAmber'', an Amberite can travel to any Shadow (aka parallel universe) they can imagine by simply visualizing the changes they desire as they move. At one point, Merlin is dosed with very strong hallucinogens. It...goes badly. (Even just regular Shadow travel can end in this situation if it's taken out far enough towards Chaos.)

* This has started happening in All-World, the main setting of ''Franchise/TheDarkTower'', due to the Beams that support the titular tower failing. Resulting in time and space beginning to 'drift', what was east one morning may be north-east the next, the passage of time becoming uncertain, etc...and while it's All-World that is the most effected, due to it being the closest to the Tower, as the strength of the Beams continues to decay this would spread to every world. Or as the book puts it, "the world has moved on."
* Creator/GregBear gives us a particularly [[NightmareFuel nightmarish]] case of this in ''The City at the End of Time''. The Chaos is effectively a new universe running on new rules. But the new rules are either incomprehensible to anything that can exist in the normal universe, or constantly changing, and it's eventually implied that they're ''both''. Creatures from our universe need specially designed armor generating a field of reality just to be exposed to it. Even so, they can only see because the armor converts the nearest equivalent it can find into light, and they have to be constantly on the lookout for...[[DeathWorld pretty much everything]].

No one actually goes in there, [[CosmicHorror but plenty of things come]] ''[[CosmicHorror out]]'' [[CosmicHorror of there]]... Well, OK, a few go in, it's just that they don't come ''out''.

** And then there are the Lower Depths. If the Abyss is "anti-reality," then the Lower Depths are "lack of reality" - a ever-shifting series of planes where at least one of the Arcana (such as Death, or Life, or Mind, or Fate...) is missing entirely.
** Faerie/Arcadia from ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'' is a much better example. Like the Wyld, it serves as home turf for TheFairFolk, and everything within its boundaries is defined not by physics but by contracts and pledges (for instance, if you haven't agreed to let fire warm you up, you can stand in the middle of an inferno and not feel any heat -- though you will get burned). Not only does time work on the YearInsideHourOutside principle according to Earth, but it works ''both ways'', meaning ten days on Earth could pass in three years' time in Arcadia, or vice versa (and those are ''not'' fixed values). Also, those of the aforementioned Mages that control Time and Fate may come here to awaken (the Arcadia of the Mages is within human experience, the Arcadia of the Fair Folk is ''not'', and the nature of their connection is debated even by the Archmages - Arcadia is that screwy).

* 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 the climax of the Team Galactic plot of ''VideoGame/PokemonPlatinum'', you, Cyrus and Cynthia enter the Distortion World, the realm of [[OlympusMons Giratina]] described as being on the reverse of the normal one. It is defined by its disconnection from natural space and time - platforms appear out of nowhere, obstacles vanish (or spontaneously generate) as you walk towards them and gravity changes on a whim. At one rather impressive point, you surf up a waterfall simply by holding the D-Pad - a waterfall that flows from the bottom of the screen to the top. Cynthia remarks that although you appear to keep moving downwards toward the centre, in a world such as this its impossible to know.
* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'': This tends to happen during events known as "Dragon Breaks", {{Time Crash}}es during which the usual forward flow of time is disrupted in some way, usually by mortals wielding a divine-level power. They also often [[CosmicRetcon alter reality]], with consequences persisting even after they end. To note some specific examples:
** In the series' backstory, during the 1st Era, the Marukhati Selectives, an elite group within the rabidly [[FantasticRacism anti-Elven]] [[TheTheocracy Alessian Order]], carried out a ritual in an attempt to purge Akatosh, the [[DragonsAreDivine draconic]] God of Time, of the elven aspects of his mythological basis - the [[OurElvesAreBetter Aldmeri]] [[NobleBirdOfPrey golden eagle]] god Auri-El. This proceeded to [[TimeCrash break time]] and reality for a period of a 1008 years, an event that came to be known as the Middle Dawn. During the Middle Dawn, reality didn't just go out for lunch, it went out for supper with friends, got wasted and passed out, waking up butt-naked in a dumpster on the other side of town with no wallet. Bizarre and impossible events occurred during this time; people gave birth to their own parents, some sources mention wars and major events which never happened according to other sources, the sun changed color depending on the witness, and the gods either walked among the mortals or they didn't. How could they measure that period of time? They used the phases of Nirn's moons, said to be [[GodIsDead Lorkhan]]'s decaying "flesh divinity", to measure time as they were not affected by the event. Even the [[TomeOfEldritchLore Elder Scrolls]] themselves cannot rationalize the events of the Middle Dawn. When the Scrolls are attuned to that time period, their glyphs disappear.

** In particle physics reactions, there can exist "virtual" particles which have invariant mass much different than what would be that particle's usual mass (if that particle weren't extant only as part of a reaction). Example: An electron and an antielectron (positron) annihilate, to form a single photon that has mass equal to the total center-of-mass energy of the two electrons, then that photon decays after a time to an electron and a positron with the same center-of-mass energies as the originals. A free photon would normally have zero mass and not decay, but here the virtual photon has mass, but decays - almost literally it is "Reality is Out to Lunch," and when reality "catches up" with the improperly-massed particle, it decays. Or at least that's one way to think about it. Of course, this is a "cartoon" picture, since in real life it's impossible to "see" the virtual particles, so it's hard to say whether they "exist" or not.

** Quantum physics postulates some wacky stuff, even in the macroscopic realm (i.e. the parts of the universe we can see with our own eyes). For instance, like electrons, massy objects have waveforms, which predict where the object is likely to be found at any given moment. Waveforms for humans have been shown to extend as far as the Moon, meaning it's theoretically possible for someone to randomly teleport to the Moon. However, the probability of it happening is so low, that it would take longer than the projected life of the Universe for it to actually happen.

* Earth in ''TabletopGame/{{Rifts}}'' ''{{TabletopGame/Rifts}}'' has also been invaded by other strange realities.a phenomenon called a LeyLine storm, where an overabundance of magical energy in one area causes everything to go haywire. Rifts to unknown dimensions can tear open during one, but that's the least of it. Characters caught in a storm can find themselves [[GravityIsOnlyATheory floating in the air]], or green slimy things fall from the sky. Using magic becomes very unporedictable, and creatures of magic have a real bad time inside one.

Sample conditions of a place where reality is out to lunch include AlienGeometries (constant relation [[YourHeadASplode between skull volume and its surface]] is a good thing to have) and [[YearInsideHourOutside time dilation]][[note]]Except for Relativity physics. Reality is perfectly real in that case[[/note]]. PerspectiveMagic is another common trick. A RealityWarper has this as a superpower. Related to HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace, only the place in question isn't necessarily used for travel purposes. See also EldritchLocation, where this often happens, and WorldOfChaos for when the effect is so widespread it makes up the whole of existence. May result in someone GivingUpOnLogic. Fairly common, or at least not out of the ordinary, in SurrealHorror.
