* Eldar Distort weapons in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40k}}'' work along similar principles -- with the caveat that (given [[HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace the nature of hyperspace]] in this setting) they're effectively teleporting targets ''directly to hell''. The Ork's Shokk Attack Gun can function like this if (when) something goes wrong; it's ''supposed'' to teleport grots (space goblins) into enemies, but has a nasty habit of sucking the target and/or user up in a Distort explosion. Their Tellyport Blasta causes TeleFrag or relocates the target several meters in the air.

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'', Noctis utilizes warpstriking as his main combat gimmick and uses teleporation regularly to dodge and fly through the air.

* The MegaCrossover "''The Eternity Legion''" has [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Geordi [=LaForge=] ]] doing this to a bunch of [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abominations]] that assault the Enterprise, by half-teleporting them (beaming them but pausing the teleportation so the monsters remain on the computer) and using an override to erase the monsters' patters from the memory banks. He even lampshades this:

* The Teleportation spell from ''VideoGame/DivinityOriginalSin'' blinks a target (an item, ally or enemy) some distance away from the caster and into the air, causing damage when they hit the ground.

* ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'': Any time Nightcrawler used his natural mutant teleportation ability offensively against an enemy in combat.
** Also applies to Magik (ComicBook/IllyanaRasputin) of the ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}''. In one story, both she and Nightcrawler teleported part of Magus away, severely injuring him.
** Blink in the crossover that led to the creation of ''ComicBook/GenerationX.'' She could "blink things apart;" it turned out the nature of this was using unstable portals to PortalCut things.
* Done accidentally by Doctor Manhattan in ''{{ComicBook/Watchmen}}'', when he teleports a television show's studio audience away and some of them die of shock. He also breaks up a riot this way.
** Later done as part of [[spoiler: Ozymandias' plot]], when he teleports a genetically engineered creature into New York which explodes upon arrival.
* ''ComicBook/PS238'': Superpowered bully Charles liked to teleport people he didn't like into the lake.

* In the crossover story ''FanFic/TheBridge'', a shrunk down [[{{Franchise/Godzilla}} Gigan]] gets into a fight with [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Mane-iac]]. Failing to land a clear shot at her with his other attacks and getting tangled up in her PrehensileHair, Gigan resorts to teleporting them high into the air before separating them. He can fly, she couldn't. [[spoiler: Fall didn't work because Gigan didn't know about ToonPhysics.]] In a later fight he has against Grand King Ghidorah, Gigan flies down, teleports up, and flies down again. By repeating this cycle hundreds of times, he builds up enough momentum to penetrate Ghidorah's hide.

** The psionics supplement gives us two powers - baleful teleport, which causes direct damage by trying to teleport the victim apart, and decerebrate, which permanently disables the target by teleporting away a fingernail-sized part of their brain stem.

* Subverted in the game ''{{Achron}}'', which features teleportation and TimeTravel as major elements but where it's impossible to teleport enemy units and any attempts to make your own units teleport into the same space and time will damage or destroy both units, making weaponisation of this technique impractical. There are however two superweapons, one of which teleports anything it affects into another time period and the other, a missile that teleports to avoid incoming fire.
