** In ''Uncanny X-Force'', an alternate version of Nightcrawler eliminates the Blob this way, by teleporting into a shark tank, grabbing hold of a great white, and telefragging it and himself into the Blob's ''stomach''. It's not shown what happens to the Blob's insides, but [[CruelAndUnusualDeath it's pretty well implied]].

See also PortalSlam (when there's something in the way when you try to ''enter'' a teleportal). Can be used to defy InertiaIsACruelMistress by destroying the offending obstacle, or as WeaponizedTeleportation. The supertrope is teleporting things to anyplace that's inherently extremely dangerous even if it's not actually inside a solid object, such as into deep space, over lava, or 100 feet straight up.

** An episode has a man build a teleportation device, which he uses to teleport bombs directly to the target to perform assassinations. When his hideout is discovered, he promptly teleports himself to a warehouse he owns, only to be half-embedded in some shelves, which have been moved when the feds raided the place earlier. Realizing he is pretty much dead, he chooses to destroy his creation to prevent it from falling into the Taelon hands. He does this by teleporting to the same exact location. According to Augur, this will create an anti-matter explosion.

** Jump points destroy everything around them. This is used by Minbari as weapon in the Movie "In the Beginning" and attempted by ScaryDogmaticAliens in episode "A View from the Gallery".
** Not to mention what happens when you open a jumppoint ''[[RealityBreakingParadox inside]]'' an active jumpgate. It's called the "Bonehead Maneuver". If you don't have a very very fast ship you won't get out of the blast radius, and not even warships built by the First Ones will survive it. Also worth noting that smaller, faster ships don't have the power output to generate their own jump points. The ships big enough to make their own jump points are too heavy and slow to make the getaway. It's not until they develop the [[CoolShip White Star]] in the third season of the show that they are willing to even attempt this. It's a close enough call that they don't bother to attempt it again. Plus they don't want to go around destroying jumpgates, as those are vital to any race using them. The only reason they blew up that one was because that species has recently died out from a plague (a whole earlier episode was devoted to that), so the only people using it were smugglers.

* 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.

** 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.
