[[caption-width-right:244:Sending the ''USS Nimitz'' back to 1941, that's the kind of teleportation we're talking about.]]

When a ''very'' large number of people, a whole fleet, an entire city, or even a whole planet, is sent to another place, another time, or another dimensional plane.

A Mass Teleportation through time is more specifically referred to as an ISOT (acronym for ''Literature/IslandInTheSeaOfTime'', a novel by Creator/SMStirling in which the entire island of Nantucket is teleported back to the Bronze Age).

The phenomenon may be deliberate, but is usually [[FreakLabAccident accidental]], [[HandWave unexplainable]], or the work of an {{Alien Space Bat|s}}. When an ISOT takes place on a small scale, it's a different trope (e.g. TrappedInThePast).

A subcategory of TeleportationTropes.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Anime/{{Macross}}'':
** In ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'', the entire superdimensional fortress and surrounding city are teleported just beyond the planet Pluto during a desperate attempt to flee an overwhelming alien assault.
** The Protodevelin do this to the city section of the titular ''Anime/{{Macross 7}}''.
** The ''New Macross''-class colony ships are designed to do this voluntarily as well.
* Hell's Gate and Heaven's Gate in ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' may qualify. It's left kind of vague whether the things were teleported to another dimension or are just completely sealed off.
* In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', these sort of things work like out-right airports for wizards. The background story also mentioned massive use of this teleportation type to transport an entire army and change the course of war.
* In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', Goku & co use the Dragon Balls to wish for everyone on Namek but Goku and Frieza to be teleported to earth.
* ''Anime/PokemonTheRiseOfDarkrai'': Palkia moves the town to a new dimension to hide in from Dialga.
* In the ''[[Anime/MagicKnightRayearth Rayearth]]'' AlternateContinuity {{O|riginalVideoAnimation}}AV, Clef teleports ''every last bit of animal life on Earth'' (except the [[PowerTrio Magic Knights]] and [[TeamPet Mokona]]) to… some other dimension. This is to keep them safe from the invasion from Cephiro, and conveniently enough lets the Knights and their foes demolish Tokyo with abandon.
* In ''Manga/{{Zipang}}'' a modern Japanese Aegis destroyer named the ''JDS Mirai'' gets inexplicably teleported back to the Battle of Midway.
* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' [[spoiler: the Soul Society does this to Ichigo's hometown temporarily to protect it from Captain Aizen.]]
* In ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', it turns out that [[spoiler:after the moon is stopped from being used to destroy the world, it's actually a GIANT SPACESHIP. The real one? Oh, that's stowed away in a PocketDimension.]]
* In ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'', one of the secondary skills of a {{Summon|Magic}}er is the ability to teleport several targets to multiple locations. Lutecia demonstrates this in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'', when she teleports an army of [[MechaMook Gadget Drones]] into the perimeters of a [[TheFederation TSAB]] facility.

[[folder:Comic Book]]
* One time, in ''[[Comicbook/TheUltimates Ultimate Comics: Avengers 3]]'', the Triskelion was facing a vampire invasion. So Captain America used the hammer of Thor ({{Mjolnir}}) to teleport them all to the Iranian desert, were the vampires were killed by the daylight. The reason for not teleporting the Triskelion into a desert area of an ally (e.g. Israel, Egypt, Saudi-Arabia) but to that of an enemy ("Great Satan", you remember) is, that it would've been less badass (you appear in broad daylight on enemy territory and they can DO NOTHING except for Ahmadinejad having a fit!!).
* A ''Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica'' graphic novel had the heroes fighting an advanced race of aliens who stole Earth (along with other inhabited planets) in order to chronicle the races' various beliefs of the afterlife, since for all the aliens' advances, they were reaching the end of their mortal lives and were as clueless about what happens next as everyone else.
* The starting premise of ''Franchise/GreenLantern: Mosaic''; a lonely and mentally unstable Guardian of the Universe snatches communities from various planets and places them all on the Guardians' abandoned homeworld Oa.
* ''Comicbook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' once had the entire population of a planet teleported to a safer solar system.
* In ''ComicBook/{{Cavewoman}}'', the entire town of Marshville is transported back to the prehistoric past.
* In Creator/PhilFoglio's ''ComicBook/{{Buck Godot|Zap Gun for Hire}}'', the titular character convinces the only life-form in the galaxy capable of true teleportation (known simply as "The Teleporter") to help out with a small problem: the star around which a heavily-populated planet orbits is about to go nova. Buck suggests that the population could be distributed to several convenient planets elsewhere, but the Teleporter [[http://www.airshipentertainment.com/buckcomic.php?date=20070426 offers a rather simpler solution]] that simultaneously resolves one of Buck's personal problems. Actually that's two problems with separate solutions (both involving teleporting). Teleporting X-Tel to Kooblen solves Buck's (and everyone else's) problem with them. On the next page we learn that the Teleporter saved the doomed planet by moving the whole planet to a different system.
* ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'' has Doctor Manhattan using this to disperse a large scale riot by teleporting every rioter back to their home. As per the CrapsackWorld nature of Watchmen, [[FinaglesLaw multiple teleportees die of heart attacks on arrival]].
* In a ''Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}'' storyarc, the entire Hell's Kitchen neighborhood was once transported to the realm of the Satan-like Mephisto.
* ''ComicBook/RatchetAndClankComic'' Artemis Zogg was forcibly teleporting planets away from various galaxies to put into his own galaxy and Ratchet and Clank were working with some friends and galactic authorities to stop him.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* The event that transported Ryanverse Earth and its surroundings into the TabletopGame/BattleTech universe, in ''FanFic/AnEntryWithABang'', is even referred to as an [[Literature/IslandInTheSeaOfTime ISOT]] event, in a nod to Stirling's novel, and was teleported into the [[Literature/SixteenThirtyTwo Grantville]] cluster.
* [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5807698/1/Every_Silver_Lining_has_its_Cloud Every Silver Lining has it's Cloud ]] - One of the more epic examples of this trope as the town of Sunnydale is transported to the world of Faerun. Set in late season two of ''[[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer BtVS]]''.
* In ''[[FanFic/SovereignGFCOrigins Origins]]'', a ''MassEffect''[=/=]''StarWars''[[spoiler:[=/=]''[=Borderlands=]''[=/=]''[=Halo=]'']] MassiveMultiplayerCrossover, Force Travel is used on a huge scale, moving a whole fleet including a [[MileLongShip Star Dreadnaught]] to ''another galaxy''. This induces a HeroicRROD in the user, but gets the heroes out of a very nasty situation. [[spoiler:It also marks the beginning of that person's [=Heel-Face Turn=].]]
* [[Fanfic/QuarterLifeHalfwayToDestruction And he used portals to push enemy headquarters into a portal so Dallas wouldn't melt down and it would only go off harmless in Atlantic Ocean]]
* The [[Roleplay/FictionalISOTMapGame FISOT]] series on Website/AlternateHistoryDotCom has an entire world populated with fictional nations through this process. As one can expect, things can get very crazy.
* Fanfic/HalkegeniaOnline: It's the premise of the story. [[LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero Louise]] summons and makes real all of [[LightNovel/SwordArtOnline Alfheim]] during the summoning ritual.
* The Roleplay/BouvetIsland mapgame (and its [[http://www.alternatehistory.com/discussion/showthread.php?t=280566 two]] [[http://www.alternatehistory.com/discussion/showthread.php?t=301442 sequels]]) along with a spinoff set on [[http://www.alternatehistory.com/discussion/showthread.php?t=313000 Tenerife Island]] on AlternateHistory.com are like [=FISOT=] country games, but only limited to characters, structures, objects, etc.
* The WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fanfic [[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/205215/island-in-the-sea-of-equus Island in the Sea of Equus]] involves the United States as of January 15th, 2014 (with some liberties such as a fictional president) [=ISOTed=] to Equestria's homeworld in the middle of Season 3.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/ThePhiladelphiaExperiment'': A UsefulNotes/WorldWarII destroyer and a PresentDay city get teleported into a [[TimeTravel time vortex]] caused by an experimental [[InvisibilityCloak Cloaking Device]].
* ''Film/TheFinalCountdown'': Aircraft carrier ''Nimitz'' gets inexplicably teleported from 1980 to early December, 1941.
* Similarly to the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode below, [[spoiler:Cybertron gets partially teleported to Earth]] in ''Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon''.
* ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' ends with the heroes having to rush out of Frank's castle before it teleports back to a distant galaxy.
* ''Film/WarCraft2016'': The Portal, around which the plot is centered, allows for mass teleportation between it and any other place.

* One of the earliest examples of the transported-through-time version is Creator/MurrayLeinster's 1919 story "The Runaway Skyscraper", in which a Manhattan tower block and its 2000 inhabitants are transported millennia into the past.
* ''Literature/BattlefieldEarth'': The Psychlos teleport an army and an airforce to Earth.
* In ''Literature/TheDemonata'' book nine, ''Dark Calling''; Kernel Fleck is given the task of using his reality jumping abilities to mass transport the Ark containing selected specimens from all planets to save them from the demon threat.
* ''Island in the Sea of Time'': Where ISOT comes from.
* ''Literature/LeftBehind'': The Rapture is, after all, a type of MassTeleportation.
* In the Creator/ArthurCClarke novel ''Time's Eye'', a parallel universe world is built using chunks of Earth from different parts of time. This includes [[UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny Alexander the Great and Genghis Khan, and their respective armies]]. And a colonial British regiment (with Creator/RudyardKipling) and a Soyuz capsule orbiting the earth.
* In the ''Literature/SixteenThirtyTwo'' saga, a small mining town called Grantville[[note]]Technically, a six-mile-wide spherical volume that happens to contain Grantville[[/note]] is mysteriously transported from West Virginia in 2000 to Thuringia in 1632, at the height of the Thirty Years War. They decide to make the best of it, and "start the American Revolution 150 years ahead of schedule", organizing their war-torn surroundings into a fledgling United States of Europe.
* In the novel ''Literature/JonathanStrangeAndMrNorrell'', Mr. Strange teleports an entire European city to North America to save it from being attacked in the Napoleonic wars. He remembered to put it back (although some of the regiments, who deserted, were not brought back with it). However, he neglected to move another city (moved to make it match the maps) back to where it originally was. He also switched the places of two churches, mostly to demonstrate the theory, and forgot to put them back.
* This is what everyone ''thinks'' happened to all of Europe in ''Literature/{{Darwinia}}'' (the book, not the game). Actually, they're [[spoiler:InsideAComputerSystem]].
* John Birmingham's ''Literature/AxisOfTime'' trilogy, inspired by ''Film/TheFinalCountdown'' (see above), depicts a military task force that somehow gets sent back in time from 2021 to 1942.
* In the ''Literature/GodspeakerTrilogy'', Emperor Han and his witchmen teleport '''an entire armada''' to fight the [[ArmiesAreEvil forces]] of the [[TheEmpire Mijaki]].
* In a ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' ExpandedUniverse novel, a glitch in a race's planet-wide transporter system causes anyone on the planet to be transported to a parallel universe every few hours. The real problem starts when one of the universes does not have this planet, so billions of people get dumped into outer space every few hours. Cue the crew of that universe's ''Voyager'' trying to figure out (and failing) how to keep billions alive without a planet.
** The TNG novel trilogy ''Literature/TheQContinuum'' gives explanation to the demise of the Iconians introduced on the show. Knowing their star was near the end of its life cycle they prepared to use their impressive transport technology to simultaneously remove and replace their entire dying star with a new young one. It would have worked spectacularly had an outside agent not forced their sun to supernova just as they began to teleport it.
* In ''Franchise/{{Dune}}'', the Spacing Guild heighliners are enormous starships that instantly travel anywhere by folding space. They are described as so large that an entire planet's population and all of their equipment will take up only a small portion of the cargo space.
* In the Creator/OrsonScottCard novel ''Literature/{{Enchantment}}'', a 747 is magicked in flight back to pre-Medieval Russia.
* Long before the story begins in ''Literature/ItsAGoodLife'', the monster psychic child teleported his entire town away from the rest of the Earth. (Either that, or he destroyed the rest of the Earth. No one is sure.)
* The ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' novel ''The Ellimist Chronicles'' has [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien the Ellimist]] move the entire Earth halfway around its orbit to keep [[EvilCounterpart Crayak]] from destroying it.
* The Creator/CharlesStross novella ''Missile Gap'' is about the citizens of Earth dealing with the planet being transported to a flat disk millions of miles across during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
* The conclusion to Creator/PeterFHamilton's ''Literature/TheNightsDawnTrilogy'' sees the entire human Confederation, star systems and all, teleported [[spoiler:to a region a few dozen lightyears around above the Milky Way's ecliptic with help from [[DeusEstMachina the Sleeping God.]]]] It should be noted that this is ''over 900 systems'' and is estimated to be ''almost a trillion people,'' [[spoiler:minus the souls of the recently-returned dead, of course.]] Ostensibly, it's so humanity can start working away from its current economic and political system [[spoiler:toward something [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence higher]].]]
* Creator/MikhailAkhmanov's ''Dick Simon'' duology is based on the premise of humanity discovering the Rampant, a method of instantaneous interstellar travel that, with enough energy, can move entire cities to other worlds. This is exactly what happens. Most major cities get moved to newly-discovered habitable worlds in order to "give people space". The US and Canada move to Columbia, the European nations move to Europa (not the moon), Russia moves to Russia, the Latin American countries move to Latmerica, etc. The polluted Earth is abandoned (with massive craters and inland seas where there were cities), except by those countries too poor to afford to use the Rampant.
* ''Literature/{{Destroyermen}}'' takes place in a parallel Earth that's riddled with cultures (both human and non) that arrived in ships snatched up from other Earths by stormlike {{Negative Space Wedgie}}s and deposited there. The mix is pretty weird already (Tenth-century Romans! French Nazis!), but it might get even more so over the next century: [[TheSmartGuy Bradford]] theorizes that the Squall is attracted to metal floating on the sea, and the series is set during WWII, right around the time that large steel ships are becoming common.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/TheFortyFourHundred'': people are abducted individually at various times and places throughout the 20th century, but all 4,400 of them get teleported back simultaneously to the same location.
* ''Series/{{Andromeda}}'' has the entire solar systems of Tarn Vedra and Ral Parthia being teleported off to a pocket dimension to hide them from a Magog invasion.
* ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}''. Although actually an example of an [[FasterThanLightTravel FTL drive]], the moment when [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Galactica dives into the atmosphere]] of New Caprica, then jumps out moments before it {{Colony Drop}}s the entire settlement, could apply. One good touch is there's a tremendous ''CRACK!'' and immediate whirlwind as air rushes back into the space where the massive battlestar once was.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** Entire planets get teleported across the universe with disturbing regularity:
*** The titular world of the Fourth Doctor adventure [[Recap/DoctorWhoS16E2ThePiratePlanet "The Pirate Planet"]] teleports itself around other planets so as to more easily strip-mine them dry, while pretending that the mineral deposits are the world's own mines.
*** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E12TheStolenEarth "The Stolen Earth"]]: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Guess what happens.]] Earth's not the ''only'' stolen planet, though -- there are 26 others, all stolen by [[spoiler:the Daleks, as part of their plan to destroy all reality]].
*** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E17E18TheEndOfTime "The End of Time"]]: [[spoiler: Gallifrey, the homeworld of the Time Lords itself, is transported next to Earth -- for all of 5 minutes.]]
** All of UNIT HQ is transported to an antimatter universe in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS10E1TheThreeDoctors "The Three Doctors"]].
** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS10E2CarnivalOfMonsters "Carnival of Monsters"]], the S.S. ''Bernice'' was teleported away from Earth and imprisoned as an exhibit inside the Miniscope.
** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS19E7TimeFlight "Time-Flight"]], a Concorde is snatched through time and deposited in Earth's distant past.
* ''Series/TheEvent'' relied on teleportation a lot, most notably in the first two episodes when a plane is teleported across the country, and in the finale where [[spoiler: the aliens' entire planet gets teleported next to Earth]].
* In ''Series/{{Fringe}}'' an entire building is transported from the alternate universe into our own, smack-dab on top of its counterpart building. Things get pretty weird...
* Ben moves the whole island in the fourth season of ''Series/{{Lost}}''.
* In the ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' SeriesFauxnale "Doomsday", Rita teleported the entire population of Angel Grove to one of her dark dimensions. If they remained trapped there too long they'd vanish.
* In ''Series/TheOuterLimits1963'' episode "[[Recap/TheOuterLimits1963S1E29AFeasibilityStudy A Feasibility Study]]", a neighborhood is teleported to another planet.
* On an episode of ''Series/{{Sliders}}'', they travel to a world where Quinn's double has slid the entire population of his Earth to another dimension except for himself. Then they go to that other dimension and witness first-hand how devastating approximately doubling the world's population in a single instant has been.
* ''[[Series/StarTrekVoyager Voyager]]'': The entire starship Voyager is transported inside the Voth's city ship in one episode. This is also the premise of the series.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}} Fantasy'''s Yrth setting. A phenomenon called the Banestorm transports collections of living creatures to the world of Yrth from other universes.
* In ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', this is how the demiplane of Ravenloft came into existence: chunks of land from other planes were teleported into it. Not ''all'' of it, as at least one adventure showed that the original Barovia is still present on the Von Zarovich homeworld. Forlorn, however, is explicitly stated to have been uprooted from its world of origin and transplanted into the Land of Mists.
* The plane of Rath in ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' was built from a shapeshifting material called flowstone, with the idea that it could be made to resemble another world and then overlay itself on top of it. All part of a complex invasion plan. That actually works. In the same rough plotline, the planeswalker Teferi teleports an entire continent away to enable its people to escape the said invasion.
* In the fluff to the tabletop game ''Robo Gear'', the imperial empire of Terra's last ditch attempt to try to regain control of the galaxy was to build a colossal Jump Drive and teleport the entire planet from star system to star system. [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} My memory is a little sketchy but I believe the entire earth was destroyed]].
* Part of the world's backstory of ''TabletopGame/TheDarkEye'' has a big chunk of jungle inhabited by various intelligent reptile species being ripped from the land and transported/turned into a pocket dimension, possibly to avoid getting overrun by humans.
* The Republic of Japan in ''TabletopGame/{{Rifts}}'' is a collection of three (formerly four) cities from the time before the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Coming of the Rifts]] that was teleported into a pocket dimension after a group of scientists performed a teleportation experiment at the exact moment the disaster hit. They end up spending a few days there, then come back three hundred years later.
* In the Star Fleet Universe of ''Star Fleet Battles'', the planet Aurora mysteriously teleported from the Federation (in the SFU's Beta Sector) into the Omega Sector.
* In the TabletopGame/{{Earthdawn}} universe, the city of Parlainth was completely removed from Barsaive before the Scourge, along with all memories of it, to protect it from the Horrors. The plan of the elaborate magic ritual was to take it to another plane of existence until the Scourge was over, and then to return to Barsaive. When it finally did return, the inhabitants were gone and the city was infested with all kinds of creatures, it's ruined streets and buildings waiting to be explored by adventurers in search of Parlainth's legendary treasures.
* The hat of the Upeo Wa Macho psi order in White Wolf's ''[[TabletopGame/{{AEON}} Trinity]]'' is this trope, and their disappearance [[spoiler: (Or their fleeing the persecution of the other orders)]] is what forced humanity to develop jumpships as an alternative.

[[folder:Theme Parks]]
* In the original version of ''Theatre/PoseidonsFury'' at [[Ride/UniversalStudios Universal's Islands of Adventure]], the finale had Zeus teleporting the entire audience to safety from a collapsing Atlantis, to back where they first started.

* In ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'', the island of Destral is equipped with special technology that causes the entire island to teleport.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* In the [[RealTimeStrategy RTS]] ''VideoGame/{{Achron}}'' humanity has integrated teleportation throughout society, with mass teleportation between star systems happening on a daily basis. Then they are attacked by aliens that not only are even better at teleportation, but have mastered TimeTravel as well. In multiplayer games it is not unheard of for players to teleport, or even [[TimeTravel chronoport]] their entire army.
* This is done in the backstory of the MMO ''VideoGame/{{Ryzom}}''. Apparently the technique utilizes [[EverythingsBetterWithRainbows rainbows]].
* In the ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights Hordes of the Underdark'' campaign, you encounter an entire Avariel city that has been teleported to the underdark. (And everyone's personality twisted)
* Archmages in ''VideoGame/WarCraftIII'' can teleport entire armies to allied units or buildings. The scroll of teleportation is similar, but can only be used to return to a town hall.
** In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', Jaina Proudmoore is specifically referred to as a master of this skill (and she uses it to good effect at the end of the Wrathgate storyline).
*** Cataclysm added this as a perk for high level guilds, called "Have group, will travel" it allows one person to summon up to 39 other people to their location instantly.
** The Protoss Arbiter in ''VideoGame/StarCraft'' can teleport a moderately-sized strike force to it.
*** Ditto for the Protoss Mothership in ''VideoGame/{{StarCraft II}}''.
*** As a matter of fact, this is how ALL Protoss units and buildings are “built.” Instead of being constructed from local materials, local materials are merely used to fuel powerful wormholes that teleport over finished items from the heavily industrialized Protoss homeworld. This allows a skilled player to rapidly TeleportSpam an entire base into existence with a single WorkerUnit.
*** Though how this continues to work in Brood War and Starcraft 2 after their homeworld is in ruins is never explained.
* ''VideoGame/HalfLife:''
** The Combine teleport massive armies to Earth and take over within hours. According to some interpretations, the Combine even teleported in the Citadel, their massive headquarters building. An even larger scale teleportation is hinted in game and stated in an development book: sea level have drastically receded across the Earth because the Combine [[PlanetLooters drained the ocean]] by opening a giant portal ''underwater''.
** In ''VideoGame/HalfLife2: Episode 2'', we hear of [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} Aperture Science's]] Borealis, an entire ship teleported to the Arctic, a reference to the Philadelphia Experiment.
* The Jump Point Beacon in ''VideoGame/HaegemoniaLegionsOfIron'' allowed the player to teleport entire fleets across space in an instant and even bypass the wormholes usually required to travel between systems. Unfortunately there is a small chance of your fleet failing to arrive at that location, sometimes appearing somewhere else sometime later, sometimes never reappearing at all.
* In the lesser known game ''[[VideoGame/WarWind WarWind 2: Human Onslaught]]'', a human military base is teleported from the Arctic into the alien world of Yavaun.
* In ''VideoGame/SuikodenIV'', Viki (the [[TheDitz ditzy]] {{Time Travel}}ing [[TeleportersAndTransporters teleportation mage]] who appears in every game of the main series) is able to teleport the heroes' entire naval fleet (consisting of up to 5 battleships, if you do well enough in the naval battles). And it doesn't even seem to be remotely difficult for her; there's no MP cost, no sign of strain, and no limit to how often she can do it. Of course, there's no reason to think that teleporting multiple warships would be more difficult than teleporting [[TimeTravel a century back in time]], something so easy that Viki literally did it ''by accident''. Oddly enough, though, [[GameplayAndStorySegregation your "master" strategist never thinks of putting her ridiculously powerful ability to strategic use.]]
* ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'':
** In ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'', Sonic learns how to manipulate time and space via Chaos Control. When he and Shadow, both in [[SuperMode super form]], perform Chaos Control simultaneously, they're capable of teleporting space stations back into orbit.
** In ''VideoGame/SonicChronicles'' we discover that several civilizations from multiple dimensions have been sucked into a realm called the Twilight Cage. Exactly why this is happening is LeftHanging, but the proposed theory is that someone or something is [[SealedEvilInACan sealing away cultures that become too powerful]].
* Even though personal transportation and FTL travel use the same technology in ''VideoGame/{{Marathon}}'', it was still quite a shock to all observers when an ancient [[{{Precursors}} Jjarro]] device was used to [[spoiler: transport an ''entire inhabited moon'' into orbit]].
* The Chronosphere in the ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlertSeries'', which is mentioned to be the result of the Philadelphia Experiment (above).

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'': In [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0643.html "A wizard Did It"]], Vaarsuvius teleports the entire Azure City refugee fleet to another continent. A few strips earlier, [[ChekhovsSkill it was noted one of the souls s/he is spliced with had teleported armies.]]
* One of the big secrets of the ''Webcomic/UnicornJelly'' setting is that [[spoiler:humans were brought to the universe of Trysmaltian in a hyperspace "rainstorm" that transported divots of land there from different places and times on Earth]]. [[EternalRecurrence And it was neither the first nor last time this occurs]].
* In ''Webcomic/{{Starslip}}'' the entire human race and all of its planets get transported halfway across the universe after the main characters annoy the [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien Anthelerix]].
* ''Webcomic/MagickChicks'': In chapter 15, [[spoiler:[[EvilRedhead Cerise]]]] uses her newly enhanced powers [[http://www.magickchicks.com/strips-mc/statistically_unlikely to plant a subliminal suggestion in the minds of the student council]] to lure them out into the woods. Then [[spoiler:betrays Melissa and Jacqui]] and reveals her plan to take over the school, mere moments before [[http://www.magickchicks.com/strips-mc/lighting_up activating a massive spell circle]] [[http://www.magickchicks.com/strips-mc/slamming_into_a_tree to teleport all of them]] [[spoiler: into a volcano]]!
* In ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'', this is pretty common with the advent of the teraport. It can be used to teleport anything from one person to TheBattlestar in a few seconds.
** The willing version was invoked by a race of sapient velociraptors to abandon their ForeverWar by secretly relocating all twenty-two billion of their population to a suitable empty world far away from their ancient enemies.
** The unwilling version of this is invoked by one character, the king of a gigantic space station that contains a city of millions, when he hires the protagonists to build an emergency evacuation system that can teleport the entire contents of the station safely to a habitable planet.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* On ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'', A.M.A.Z.O. once ''moved a planet out of the dimension'' on his trip back to Earth. More than that, the planet was ''Oa'', home of the {{Sufficiently Advanced Alien}}s who give the Franchise/GreenLantern Corps their rings. If ''they'' couldn't stop A.M.A.Z.O., you know the Justice League's chances didn't look good. And that doesn't even get into how ''effortless'' it was. He didn't remove the planet to keep the Guardians and the Green Lantern Corps from interfering with him. He did it because Oa was ''in his way''. It was literally quicker and easier for him to teleport the planet into another dimension than to just fly around it. John asks him to move it back, so A.M.A.Z.O. complies.
* The Prison Planet in ''WesternAnimation/ShadowRaiders'' aka ''War Planets''. Each and [[PlanetOfHats every planet in the cluster]] is equipped with [[LostTechnology a World Engine]] which sprouts world-sized rockets, seals the atmosphere, and allows the entire thing to travel across space. The exception is the Prison Planet, whose World Engine consists of a massive teleport unit. During the GrandFinale, the Prison Planet is sacrificed to the [[PlanetEater Beast]] and its Engine is activated, whisking the foe to the other end of the galaxy.
* This was the main goal of the Highbreed army in ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'', to complete a teleporting gate large enough to transport the entire warfleet at once, for easy extermination.
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' the day is saved by teleporting Earth's moon to another planet (so as to cause a solar eclipse and shut down the enemy's solar-powered war machines) and then back. It's every bit as ridiculous as it sounds. Ridiculously AWESOME!
* On ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'', it's revealed in the episode named for her that villainess Breach stole the entire town of Greenville, Ohio and stuck it in a pocket dimension. She later returned the people and used the town to store anything (and anyONE) that attracts her interest.
* The ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' ChristmasEpisode was based around Zim's plan to teleport the entire human species to [[BigBadDuumvirate the Tallests]] to be used as slaves. He fails, [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption of course]].
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}''
** Grougaloragran the dragon can performs teleportation, even on entire areas rather than on just people. When he sends the Five-Man Band plus Adamaï to safety at the end of episode 16, it takes away a good chunk of the island.
** The Noxines can create medium-sized portals which Nox's Mooks then use, before building a much bigger, horizontal portal through which the whole Giant Clock SpiderTank can fit.
** An Eliatrope portals are normally small and don't last long, but can be significantly improved with practice, preparation, and power. With at least several hours of preparation [[spoiler:and the Eliacube's power]], Quilby makes an enormous portal [[spoiler:[[HellGate into the Shushu world]]]]. After the TimeSkip, Yugo is able to clear out a crowded room by teleporting almost everyone outside and, with help of several [[AmplifierArtifact Dofus]], [[spoiler:teleports a ''mountain'' into the sky so the battle won't damage the Earth (this [[ColonyDrop horribly backfires]])]].
