* Some games of ''Videogame/Quadrax'' series allow you to teleport between portals. Guess what happens when you teleport into one with stone block in it. Same effect can be achieved if you teleport a block to a place where a character is.

* ''VideoGame/Titanfall2'' has the Ronin-class Titan, capable of temporarily phasing in-and-out of reality. If it tries to phase in at a point where a enemy Titan is standing, the Ronin dies instantly.
** There is also a pilot execution where the executing player phases into their target, and explodes them from the inside.

* This is a concern for Travelers in ''Literature/TheGrimnoirChronicles''. One of ''Literature/TheGrimnoirChronicles'', to the heroes has point where it's mentioned that while Travelers aren't all that rare, Travelers who survive to adulthood are ''very'' rare. Faye gets lucky - she only ends up with a bug embedded stuck in her foot when she teleports without looking.checking if the space she's jumping to is empty. Most mistakes of that nature are fatal.



* Farslayer the Sword of Vengeance in the ''Literature/BookOfSwords'' series kills its targets this way. Once Farslayer is swung with a target in mind, it becomes a ghostly blade that relentlessly seeks out its target no matter where they are hiding and only becomes solid again after it has embedded itself in the target's heart. The catch is that the sword remains stuck in its victim, so anyone seeking vengeance for the victim (hence the title "Sword of Vengeance") who has a good idea of who is responsible can throw Farslayer right back. Two feuding families were wiped out this way as they kept [[CycleOfRevenge launching Farslayer at each other]].

* A case of accidental telefragging in the two-part FreakyFridayFlip episode "Dreamland" of ''Series/TheXFiles''. During a test run with an experimental and top secret aircraft by the more secretive parts of the military, something went wrong that had space-time warping in the area. The results? One of the pilots is fused to a boulder and still breathing, a couple that were getting intimate is found [[BodyHorror fused together]] by their friend, and Mulder finds a pair of dimes intersecting each other at a right angle.

* The [[AbsurdlySharpBlade Dimension Sword]] technique in ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'' is a combination of Telefrag and {{Vibroweapon}}. By shifting dimensions, a user can pass through objects unchallenged - and by shifting back, they will promptly ''destroy'' whatever they are currently within - from a block of wood to a suit of armour to human flesh. The most efficient form is doing this 'shift away, shift back' action ''one hundred times per second.''[[note]]Ling-Ling Huang uses a less practiced form of sixteen shifts per second, and promptly gets her ass kicked against a user of the 100 s/s version.[[/note]]

** Most forms of personal teleportation in ''Warhammer 40000'' present an inverted risk: teleporting into an enemy makes YOU roll on the "Deep Strike Mishap Table" -- this has a chance of making your personal teleporter ''explode'' - but does nothing to your foe (the same mechanic is used for paratroopers getting shot down and tunneling units suffering a cave-in).
** Also, daemon summmoning usually results in the major daemon appearing "in" the caster or sacrificial victim.

* Creator/DeanKoontz novel ''The Bad Place''. Frank Pollard has a problem: when he teleports, small pieces of nearby objects end up being permanently embedded in his body. [[spoiler: As the porting is [[PowerIncontinence somewhat uncontrollable]] and resulting in more and more outside mass being incorporated, the book ends with him forcibly teleporting his villainous brother again and again until their bodies have merged and enough outside mass has been worked in to make the final configuration unable to survive.]]
