** During their time on Chorus, the teleportation cubes (or "Future Cubes") have a tendency to induce nausea in the users. Caboose has described it as feeling like his insides were just outside.
--->'''Sarge:''' Today is a good day to--(teleported) . . . lay down and take a nap, 'cuz I think I'm gonna throw up.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Twilight Sparkle uses teleportation frequently, and it sometimes has this effect. In part two of the pilot, she comes out slightly dizzy after teleporting herself a few feet, the first time we see her do it. In "The Ticket Master", she does a kind of reverse of [[ComicBook/{{Watchmen}} Dr. Manhattan's]] "Leave me alone!" moment and accidentally teleports herself and Spike back to their home to escape an overly-friendly mob. Twilight is momentarily disoriented, but Spike comes out dazed and singed. Later, she seems to have mastered the ability to such a degree that she's no longer affected by it, and can teleport with such convenience she can use TeleportSpam just to hold a conversation. In "Dragon Quest", Twilight teleports her entire group an undefined large distance (at least several dozen miles, and likely much farther) and none of her friends appear to have any ill effects from it. Twilight herself is visibly exhausted by the feat, but does not appear otherwise incapacitated.

* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'': Planeswalkers can take other beings along with them when moving across dimensions. However, it causes a strong nausea to said beings. It's not too nice for the Planeswalker, either.

* Staying too long in hyperspace in DavidDrake's Literature/{{RCN}} series causes people to experience individual and always different sensory hallucinations. One time you may feel as if you have been turned inside out, another you may see alien figures walking around and looking at you.

* WebVideo/BriTANicK had a bit about this. A herpes medication called "Herpex" [[SideEffectsInclude causes random teleportation]] in its users. During the commercial, one man talks about the "[[EldritchLocation place between places]]" that you end up while teleporting, which is shown to be a hellish [[HellIsThatNoise scream-filled realm]]. You can watch it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wrVqD67zils here]].

* ComicBook/{{Nightcrawler}} from ''ComicBook/XMen'' has the ability to teleport, which leaves people he takes with him who are not used to it disoriented. The reason for this is that whenever he teleports, he goes through a dimension that is actively hostile to human life (that's where the smoke comes from). He's built up an endurance to it, while people he teleports offensively usually haven't. [[ExploitedTrope He's been known to use this offensively]] by grabbing someone and teleporting around a few times to disorient them (some other teleporters prefer to use TeleFrag instead).

However, early in his career, teleporting with a passenger caused "murderous" strain (as he described it) on both.

* The Corridors of Darkness in ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' are a sort-of PortalNetwork that allows transportation through the Realm Of Darkness to other worlds at the risk of the Darkness eating at the (metaphysical) hearts of the travelers, either turning them evil or into TheHeartless. One way to avoid this effect is wear a certain type of black cloak that several characters sport while Keyblade Wielders have InstantArmor that serves a similar purpose when traveling between worlds. Certain individuals have an immunity to this effect either because they have no hearts (Nobodies like the members of Organization XIII, who sport the black cloaks mentioned despite not having hearts [[spoiler: except they ''can'' grow hearts as revealed in ''Dream Drop Distance'']]) or the [[MacGuffinGirl Princesses of Heart]] because they possess no darkness in their hearts to begin with. Even with this immunity, it's hard to imagine traveling through a SwirlyEnergyThingy made of Pure Darkness to be remotely ''pleasant.''

* In the episode "Hunting Grounds" from ''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen'', Nightcrawler and his [[ShipTease sort-of-but-not-quite love interest]] ScarletWitch find themselves trapped in one of Mojo's [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame "games"]], pitting them against his foot soldiers and (later) [[spoiler:a [[BrainwashedAndCrazy mind-controlled]], [[AxCrazy feral]] ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}]]. Fearing Wanda's safety, Kurt performs [[TeleportSpam a series of teleports to cover ground]]. After several, Wanda collapses to her knees and asks Kurt to stop for the time being, as her stomach was "two teleports back".

* 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 ''Film/TheOne'', inter-dimensional teleportation looks very uncomfortable and causes everyone teleported to become incapacitated for a time. Even the superhuman villain Yulaw becomes helpless, which seems to be the main purpose of this feature, as it allows him to be arrested without any further fuss. However, it appears to require him only a few minutes to recover and return to full strength. At the end, when [[spoiler:he is sent to a PenalColony universe and has to fight off waves of other convicts, he appears to do so effortlessly only moments after coming to.]]
