** The episode "Real Life" had a RecycledInSpace tornado draw a shuttle into an EldritchLocation before AcePilot Tom Paris could figure a way out. And yes, [[FollowTheLeader this episode did air a year after]] ''Film/{{Twister}}''...

** In "Twisted", Voyager becomes an EldritchLocation after passing through an UnknownPhenomenon similar in appearance to this trope. All the cabins and decks become mixed up yet the episode ends without any damage to the ship or crew, or [[RiddleForTheAges even an explanation about what happened]].

* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' had a million of these over the course of its run. The other ''Franchise/StarTrek'' series weren't above using them either.

* ''Series/StargateSG1'''s Stargate normally looks like a rippling pool, but when subjected to the effects of a black hole on the far side, it became a swirling funnel-shaped whirlpool that sucked things in.

* ''Series/BlakesSeven''. In "Breakdown", the Liberator enters a ForbiddenZone against the advice of their MasterComputer, which shuts down all automatic systems in a futile attempt to stop them. They discover why it's forbidden on encountering a swirling 'gravitational vortex'. Fortunately AcePilot Jenna is able to manually pilot the Liberator [[DoNotTouchTheFunnelCloud right through the middle]].

** That last part [[WordOfGod has later been confirmed]] to be canon. When shifting into the small form he kept while facing the Toa, Makuta placed the rest of his mass into the swirly cloud as a way of dealing with ShapeshifterBaggage. It helped him avoid the problem he had faced some years before, where he had to absorb mass and energy from things around him after having disguised as a smaller character for some time. This energy absorption [[http://biosector01.com/wiki/images/e/ec/LoMN_Great_Cataclysm.PNG also took the form a Swirly Energy Thingy]].
