** In ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS14E6TheTalonsOfWengChiang The Talons of Weng-Chiang]]'', 51st century dictator Magnus Greel managed to escape to the past using "zygma energy", a dead-end technology based on a faulty theory of physics, which left him maimed at the cellular-genetic level.

--> White Diamond’s method of teleporting was different [[spoiler:from mine…]]and a lot rougher [[spoiler:on my system]], which I proved by bending over and puking all over the ground.

** There's a running gag where Tucker's always singed (turning his armour black) whenever he uses a teleport.

* In ''Literature/TheLongEarth'' series, "stepping" into a parallel world can cause this, depending on the person. Gifted steppers can do it repeatedly with no strain. Others experience degrees of nausea that can be avoided with pills, and are otherwise fine if they don't overdo it. "Phobics", however, have such bad reactions that they'll die without medical attention.

* Because the time travel device in Michael Crichton's ''Literature/{{Timeline}}'' is slightly less than perfect at reassembling travelers' molecules, the tiny imperfections a traveler accumulates through repeated usage can eventually add up to serious medical problems; e.g. the character who suffers a fatal heart attack because segments of his veins no longer match up with one another.
* Accumulated reassembly errors in teleportation and the complications from same happen to [[spoiler:Frank Pollard]] in Creator/DeanKoontz' ''The Bad Place''. He figures out a way to weaponize this against [[spoiler:his brother "Candy", to save the Dakotas from being murdered]], although this results in his death as well.

* In Sandy Mitchell's ''Literature/CiaphasCain'' novel ''The Emperor's Finest'', Cain and Jurgen are teleported over what is probably a few kilometers, and Cain spends a week in sickbay to recover from the warp exposure (which [[AntiMagic Jurgen]] shrugs off in less than a day). It is said that the {{Space Marine}}s who own the teleporter employ shielding devices in their armor to prevent this effect. Cain and Jurgen were not expecting to teleport and had no such protection.

* In ''Literature/{{Strata}}'', there's something about a sapient mind that won't go FTL. Absolutely ''will not go'' FTL. It's called "Soul lag" since whatever it is triggers apocalyptic despair.

* ''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': Eric always feels ill after teleporting, and the longer the distance the worse he feels. It's a RunningGag, and unfortunately for him, the teleports get longer as the series goes on. It's treated as similar to motion sickness; some people are more sensitive to it than others. No one else has a problem with it.



** Initially, the Stargate in both ''Film/{{Stargate}}'' the film and ''Series/StargateSG1'' causes extreme disorientation when used for travel. The TV show removed this element and explained that the effect was due to poorly calculated coordinates of older gate addresses. In addition, when first stepping through, Daniel actually was covered in frost and shivering, explained as a side effect of having your molecules being put back together. The soldiers helping Daniel up and reassuring him after he comes out of the gate is also one of the only times in the film's first half where [[PetTheDog they are nice to him.]] Probably because they just went through the same thing a few seconds ahead of him.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' has this, in addition to the various {{Teleporter Accident}}s and, y'know, the fact that teleportation involves going through Hell really fast hoping nothing notices. This seems proportional to the distance, as short-ranged teleportation apparently has little to no health effects.

* ''All'' FasterThanLightTravel in the ''Literature/HammersSlammers'' books cause cluster headaches because the human mind [[CannotGraspTheTrueForm cannot comprehend]] moving that fast.
