* In the German pulp series ''Literature/ProfessorZamorra'', the demon lord Asmodis traditionally teleports by invoking the spell and spinning in place, pulling any 'passengers' he may have along with him. This seems to be mainly a personal quirk since other teleportation techniques and technologies in the series generally ''don't'' require this (though movement in general is a necessary component for at least some, making being tied up tightly enough still an issue for the would-be teleporter).

* In ''VideoGame/{{Mother|1}}'' the teleport spell is executed by having the character move around while accelerating rapidly before zooming off; because colliding with anything stops the teleport, the better the player is at moving in a small circle, the more places he can teleport from. ''Mother 2/VideoGame/{{Earthbound}}'' had two teleport spells, one of which worked the same as the first game and the other automatically making the party move in a tight spiral for much easier use.

* ''{{Tekken}}'''s Yoshimitsu possesses a special in his [[StanceSystem Indian mediation stance]] allowing him to spin so fast (while sitting down) that he instantly warps on the other side of his opponent.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Bomberman}} Tournament'', each [[{{Mon}} Karabon]] has its own special ability that can help Bomberman when exploring (some are passive, others need to be activated manually). Pommy (your first ally and a CaptainErsatz of {{Kirby}} and [[{{Pokemon}} Pikachu]]) has the ability to transport Bomberman to any (major) town he's previously visited. Using this power causes Bomberman to spin rapidly before he's launched into the sky and lands in his intended destination.
* This is how ''IMMeen'' escapes after you defeat him.
* Parodied in ValkyrieProfileCovenantOfThePlume's BonusDungeon, where one of your characters starts spinning rapidly out of excitement and flies off. Some [=NPCs=] tell him to wait for them and follow him in a similar manner, except for the last one, who just asks TheHero if he excepted him to fly off spinning and walks away.

* In the ''RegularShow'' episode "Dizzy", when the characters spin around until they fall over, they are sent to a bizarre otherworld.

This is a sub-trope of [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning Everything's Better With Spinning]].

If the teleportation device itself spins (as opposed to the people spinning within the device), it's [[WhenThingsSpinScienceHappens When Things Spin, Science Happens]]. The tropes are similar in that in both cases, the spinning occurs either to invoke RuleOfCool or to avoid confusing the audience.
