* ''{{ComicBook/Birthright}}'' desconstructs this premise with the typical teenager from Earth thrown into a fantasy land ruled by the BigBad whom he must defeat. And to do that, he is [[TrainingFromHell put through the grinder]], forced to become a ChildSoldier and [[HarmfulToMinors see things first hand]] what [[WarIsHell no one else should see]]. The end result? [[spoiler:He pulls a FaceHeelTurn, joins the BigBad because he offered to return him home in exchange of becoming his enforcer and leaves the fantasy world to rot]].

* Downplayed in ''Manga/KobayashiSanChiNoMaidDragon''. While none of the dragons are natives of Earth, most of them have the ability to freely conjure up inter-dimensional portals. The only ones who are "trapped" on Earth are Kanna and Elma. Kanna could theoretically go back at any time with Tooru's help, but she'd just be sent back to Earth anyway because she had been banished. Elma on the other hand got stuck chasing after Tooru, lacks the ability to make her own portals, and isn't on the best of terms with those who can.

* ''Literature/TalesOfTheMagicLand'' start of much the same as Baum (especially since the first book was a loose but recognizable translation of Baum); but Ellie and whatever relatives she takes along with her to the Emerald City always return home, and by the last book Ellie is studying in America and her cousin Fred is working on a factory, both having no intention to move to the Magic Land. It's stated that Scarecrow wanted to invite Ellie to the Emerald City as a teacher, but it's left unknown whether he did and whether she agreed.

* The ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' fic ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/9312374 Bring me Back Home]]'' involves Marinette falling through a portal into an alternate Paris, based on the ''Miraculous Ladybug'' pilot video, forcing her to deal with a much less friendly Cat Noir than she's used to. In turn, Marinette's counterpart [[FanNickname Bridgette]] ends up in the familiar Paris, is forced to impersonate Marinette for the time being and quickly digs herself into a hole with Alya and Adrien by not realising that Chat Noir is much more popular than she's used to.
