* In the ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}'' canon, time travel destroys everything in its path, [[SphereOfDestruction leaving a spherical hole]] [[PortalCut around the point where the time traveler arrives]]. In the original script, however, Reese was sent back with another soldier, who was killed on arrival when he materialized halfway through some of the scenery.

* ''Series/StargateSG1'' has the aptly-named "iris", a DilatingDoor that covers the wormhole of the SGC's stargate. Anyone trying to enter unannounced ends up obliterated against it. A season seven episode shows the latest Goa'uld BigBad Anubis having duplicated the SGC's iris at one of his bases with a force field across the stargate impenetrable except to his Kull {{Super Soldier}}s. In ''Series/StargateAtlantis'', the city of {{Atlantis}} has a similar force field that can be raised across its own stargate.

Anyone trying to enter unannounced ends up obliterated against it, because the iris is so close to stargate that not even a molecule can reintegrate without hitting it.

** In the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' novel ''Into the Nebula'', the titular nebula causes sensor interference that renders this a risk if the transporters are used. At first, it's thought that the margin of error of 100 meters whouldn't be that much of a problem when beaming down to a planet...until Chief O'Brien clarifies that this is 100 meters in ''all'' directions, including up and down.

* Used in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' where, if an enemy is standing on top of a Teleporter and a player uses the Teleporter, they are awarded a kill (if both players are on the same team [[FriendlyFireproof nothing happens]]). A common strategy for Spies is to sap a Teleporter entrance and stand on top of it so that when the Engineer breaks the sapper, the Spy teleports through, kills the Engineer in doing so, and can sap his buildings with impunity.

** An Engineer can also telefrag by using the Eureka Effect to teleport to his Teleporter exit while an enemy is standing on it.
** The Helltower map gives the players access to an assortment of spells, one of which is Teleport. Targeting the ground under an enemy's feet with this spell will teleport you into them and kill them instantly. [[DevelopersForesight It even has its own kill icon]].

** Shub-Niggurath (named after one of HP Lovecraft's {{Eldritch Abomination}}s), the final boss, is only killable by this method. There's a weird looking pod that flies around the boss room and deposits the player wherever it happens to be when you go into the teleporter, and at one point, the pod goes into Shub's body. If you go into the teleporter at that point, the result is a VERY messy demise for the Hell-Mother.

* In the Seal of Nehahra, a four-hour long Machinima fully rendered in VideoGame/{{Quake}} which expands on its plot, an Ogre named Zin accidentally telefrags a Death Knight standing on a teleporter pad. It is this incident which inspires Sergeant Lawrence Maxwell to orchestrate the aforementioned teleporter and spiked sphere in Shub-Niggurath's Lair.

* 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 imbedded 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]].

* ''Literature/CiaphasCain'':
** PlayedForLaughs in ''For the Emperor'' when Amberley Vail dives for a gun and is shot at mid-dive, causing her displacer field to activate. This teleports her safely out of the way of the bolter shot but Cain hears a crash and "some unladylike cursing" from her. Amberley's accompanying footnote briefly explains that a displacer field conserves momentum ([[VideoGame/{{Portal}} in other words, speedy thing goes in, speedy thing comes out]]) and concludes that "it was a stupid place to put a table, anyway."
** In ''The Traitor's Hand'', the Valhallan 597th hits a Chaos installation only to have a group of [[BloodKnight World Eaters Chaos Space Marines]] teleport into the facility ahead of them. They had just teleported from ships orbiting on one side of the planet to literally the complete opposite side, and Cain wonders to himself how many World Eaters are now entombed thousands of kilometers underground.

* Discussed in ''VideoGame/ShadowWarrior2013'' with regards to Hoji's chi portals. After the second one nearly drops Wang off a cliff, he starts chewing Hoji out. Hoji responds that he's still rusty with the portals; if he tried to make them closer to the ground Wang might materialize several feet ''under''ground. Wang withdraws his complaint.
