* In ''Literature/CriticalFailures'', four friends invite a random guy online to be their [[GameMaster Cave Master]] for a ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' {{Expy}} called ''Caverns & Creatures''. The guy, Mordred, gets annoyed with them [[StopHavingFunGuys not taking the game seriously]] and insulting him, so he uses a set of magical dice to send them into the game as their characters. Then he does the same to a sister of one of the boys, who comes back unexpectedly, and her boyfriend. The trapped friends are forced to survive in a world that is suddenly real and deal with the consequences of their thoughtless actions from back when they thought it was just a game, such as lopping off the head of a guard for no good reason. They also have to abide by the rules of the game, and their skills are limited by whatever character stats they rolled before they started playing. For example, Cooper ends up being a half-orc with extremely low intelligence and charisma stats, so he constantly does something disgusting without meaning to and can't read, even though Cooper is normally literate. This doesn't apply to reading their character sheets, since those items aren't treated as of the game world. Also, Mordred keeps an eye on them through any person, creature, or object.

* ''WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster'' involved the main character [[AscendedFanboy Kevin Keene]] being sucked into "Videoland", a world where Nintendo games were real ([[TheyJustDidntCare and often very misrepresented in comparison to their actual video game counterparts]]). Strangely Kevin [[JumpedAtTheCall seems to have no interest in going back to the real world]] and very rarely, if ever, expresses a desire to go home. What must his mother think...

* In ''Literature/{{Everworld}},'' the main characters [[HeroicWannabe David]], [[PoliticallyIncorrectHero Christopher]], [[TheSmartGuy Jalil]] and [[TheChick April]] get sucked into the titular world when [[GodOfEvil Loki]] breaches the space between worlds to abduct [[TokenEvilTeammate Senna]]. ([[MagnificentBitch Senna specifically planned this]].) Everworld is populated with various mythological gods who came there from our world ("the Old World") centuries ago, along with their mortal followers. There are also weird alien creatures who came from completely different worlds, along with ''their'' gods, one of whom is an EldritchAbomination seeking to eat all the others. Senna could bring them home, but unlike most {{MacGuffin Super Person}}s, she has her own agenda, [[AGodAmI and it's not pretty]].

A blend of FishOutOfWater and FailureIsTheOnlyOption, with a large dash of heroism. The inverse of AlienAmongUs. Often overlaps with DownTheRabbitHole and YouCantGoHomeAgain. If it's the hero's job to bring back the trapped person, it's an OrpheanRescue, if someone else turns up to bring back the hero it's WeirdnessSearchAndRescue. May involve FantasticRomance. In {{Literature}} this is often referred to as a Portal Fantasy.

* ''FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsA2'' both use this as the main plot for the player character, but handle it in different ways. Advance has the main character wanting to go back to the real world because running away from life's problems is not healthy. A2 has the main character wanting to go home so he doesn't worry his aunt, but is in no rush to go home and tries to enjoy the time spent in the fantasy world.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}} 6: Road to Ninja'' features the titular character and his teammate, Sakura, being sent to an AlternateUniverse by Tobi.
* ''Anime/NowAndThenHereAndThere''. This is an exceptional example of this trope because the creators [[{{Deconstruction}} threw out every convention associated with it from episode 1]]. Shu sees a strange young girl sitting on a smokestack on his way home from school and goes to meet her. As he is introducing himself he and the girl are attacked by people teleporting in from the distant future in pursuit of that girl. True to the genre Shu picks up a stick and fights to defend the girl. He immediately gets his ass handed to him and both he and the girl are dragged forward billions of years where Earth is a dying desert planet orbiting a sun in the early stages of nova. What follows is a relentless thirteen episode trip through the ninth ring of Hell.
