*** Note that most of the library's strangeness has nothing to do with being part of a WizardSchool. On the disc, [[InsaneTrollLogic Knowledge = Power = Energy = Matter = Mass]], and sufficient quantities of this "mass" can warp space until it creates a portal to an extradimensional library filled with every book that could ever possibly exist. "L-space" is connected to every library and bookshop in any given time period, which makes ''all of them'' eldritch to some degree and allows anyone familiar with it to travel between them.

** The Farmstead from the ''Color of Madness'' update was struck by a mysterious comet, causing some very odd effects in the region. Crystals spread everywhere, infesting living things like parasites, twisting then into monsters. The exploded remains of the central windmill simply float in place, unaffected by gravity. Trying to trek to the comet's crash site will lead to heroes being teleported around randomly, sometimes to other parts of the farm, sometimes to brightly-colored voids with bits of scenery from other parts of the game. People that die there don't stay dead, emerging alive a few weeks later. And worst of all, the entire place is trapped in a time loop - even if a group of heroes manages to fight their way through the hordes of corrupted monsters and destroy the comet, [[GroundhogDayLoop they'll just find themselves warped back to when they first entered the farm, doing it all over again.]]


** The Dark Ocean, a place populated by something that is either an EldritchAbomination that can take the form of a Digimon and are suspiciously called the Digi-Deep Ones and serve a master that is suspiciously similar to Cthulhu, Digimons whose designs are heavily influenced by the Franchise/CthulhuMythos (Named Dragomon in the card game but not in the show), or Cthulhu and his minions making a LawyerFriendlyCameo. It was stated that The Dark Ocean is a separate Dimension from the other two established dimensions.

* The Realm in ''Literature/{{Dragoncharm}}''. The Naturals have no inkling of it, and the Charmed can only see it by imagining a gateway so that they can choose whether or not to enter. If they do, masses of [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abominations]] are waiting to prey on the weak. [[TheComicallySeriouis Cumber]] chooses to see it as a thick membrane and to scratch a gash in it as his means of getting through.

* Most of John French’s ''Literature/ThousandSons'' trilogy takes place within the Eye of Terror, so it should come as no surprise that Ahriman visits such locations at least once a book:
** ''Ahriman: Exile:'' The moon where [[MadOracle Menkaura]] dwells is a solid orb of black crystal whose perfectly smooth surface is broken only by the kilometre-wide mouth of a shaft that leads into the moon’s depths. Down there is a fog-filled corridor filled with petrified figures and strange apparitions, and after walking down it for a while Ahriman suddenly finds himself in Menkaura’s lair, a perfectly spherical chamber with no visible entrance. ''The Tale of Ctesias'' reveals that [[spoiler:the moon is actually a cage that compels Menkaura—or any daemon that tries to take his place—to answer questions on behalf of anyone who seeks him out]].
** ''Ahriman: Sorcerer:'' Apollonia lies outside of the Eye of Terror and appears to be a normal moon at first glance, but its core contains the Athenaeum of Kallimakus, a direct link to the mind of [[HumanoidAbomination Magnus the Red]], and everything beneath the surface is honeycombed by a labyrinth of tunnels that were shaped by Magnus’s stray thoughts. Apollonia is so eroded by the Warp that the Athenaeum is literally the only thing holding it together: after Ahriman removes it, the whole moon implodes, releasing a warp storm into the system.
** ''Ahriman: Unchanged:'' The Planet of the Sorcerers is noted to be weird even by the standards of other daemon worlds. The whole place exists in a state of constant change: the streets and buildings of its capital city rearrange themselves even as you walk down to street, so that the cityscape is completely unrecognizable from one day to the next. The [[EvilTowerOfOminousness Tower of Magnus]] is the only fixed landmark in the city, and even then the Tower is only physically present when Magnus himself chooses to manifest on the planet; if he isn’t there, neither is the Tower. The planet is also wracked with constant tectonic upheaval, and gravity and time work strangely here (you enter the Tower of Magnus by walking up its side, for instance).


Eldritch Locations take many forms: {{Lost World}}s, [[TheWonderland Wonderlands]] ("Wonder" is not always a good thing), Strange Planets, Incomprehensible Voids (especially the PrimordialChaos), [[WombLevel the insides]] of {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, {{Alternate Universe}}s, ordinary-looking buildings... basically, wherever the author decides could use some weirdness.

** The various planes of Oblivion, the "infinite void" surrounding Mundus, may be the [[GeniusLoci physical forms]] of the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Princes]] they are associated with. They are not bound to any of the laws of nature and physics that bind Mundus, and are subject to change on the whim of the associated Prince. Even [[YearInsideHourOutside time does not flow normally]] within Oblivion, though the exact details often vary. For example, when [[TheGoodKing Emperor Uriel Septim VII]] was imprisoned there by his EvilChancellor CourtMage Jagar Tharn for 10 Nirn years, he did not age a day. For specific details on the planes of the Daedric Princes, see the series' [[Characters/TheElderScrollsDaedra "Daedra" Characters]] sub-page.

* The Witch Barrier in ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' are chaotic dimensions isolated from reality where [[EldritchAbomination Witches]] manifest and reside. It's a crossover between this trope and MentalWorld, since the barrier itself represents the (near-mindless) psyche of Witches. Entering it is pretty much a death sentence for humans since the familiars of the Witch are usually running around. [[spoiler:They are also full RuleOfSymbolism, as it turns out that the Witch Barrier represents subversions and mockeries of the wishes of the Witch who created it.]]

* In the Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality series, the raw, unmade substance from which Clotho spins thread is deep within one of these. Trees start to become geometric abstractions, and she walks on a path which goes upside down, and pretty much everything breaks down as she reaches the area from which she must collect the raw material from which to spin her threads.

** The Wyld, in which reality as we know it pretty much stops working. Divided into the Bordermarches, the closest regions to normal reality, which are only mildly weird, the Middlemarches, where the laws of physics cease to be reliable and movement and distance are [[TheoryOfNarrativeCausality based more around narrative conventions than concrete measurements]], the Deep Wyld, where reality is officially [[RealityIsOutToLunch Out To Lunch]], and the Pure Chaos, which isn't so much a location as it is the unshaped, incoherent chaos outside of the universe.

* The titular setting of ''TabletopGame/BetrayalAtHouseOnTheHill'' always has a random layout, and can have things such as walls that devour you and spit you out elsewhere.
** It is possible to have a non-euclidean house where the rooms loop around the front door the players 'entered' through and connect to the foyer (the starting room) on the opposite side. And also to have a second story of the house that is twice as large as the ground floor.
* The cosmos of ''TabletopGame/{{Nobilis}}'' is pretty much made up of Eldritch Locations, all of which run on their own set of rules - ''including'' mundane Earth, which is a fantasy the Earth created for itself after the trauma that destroyed the dinosaurs, a way for it to deny the existence of karma and thus the belief that it deserved that trauma. It's self-maintaining, self-rationalising... and overstretched, as it's getting far too complex to sustain.

It soaks into you, and stays with you like an insidious radiation, eating away at your memories, your thoughts, and eventually your mind itself. The cavern is full of individuals of all kinds and species that have completely lost themselves, and are completely unable to remember anything, or think clearly. Prolonged exposure will cause your skull to ''grow bone over your eye sockets'' in a futile effort to stop it. Forgotten memories bounce around the place with no rhyme or reason, and make you remember things you never experienced before departing just as quickly as they came. And if you forget your own name, [[AndIMustScream you can never, ever leave]]. And there are theories this color is what makes the entire Neath an Eldritch Location in itself]].

*** The Abyss in New Londo. It's black. And that's pretty much it. No light. No landscape. No horizon. No ground. Just black in every direction, going on forever.

** We can do better than that: Black holes! Also, Calabi-Yau space, the universe before the Big Bang, and pretty much anything beyond the universe. And the inside of an atom. Actually, the modern understanding of physics pretty much [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs requires a lot of drugs to understand]].
** Some of these have since put to contest - for example, the quantum physics as we know it doesn't allow an absolute singularity to form, even though General Relativity does, which may mean that no "true" black holes exist, whereas other theories challenge the idea of the Big Bang as the start of the Universe - it has already been all but disproved in the form it's being taught in schoolbooks, but the event's exact nature still eludes the scientists, and there are multiple conflicting theories without enough evidence to pick one over the others.
** Understanding the singularity that was the entire universe could require a higher level of maths than we have so far. [[http://io9.com/?_escaped_fragment_=5773158/what-really-happened-right-after-the-big-bang#!5773158/what-really-happened-right-after-the-big-bang Considering that the physics at the literal instant after the expansion began were so much different than what's in the universe now, it's not hard to conceive that.]]
** Black holes aside, neutron stars also qualify. They are so far removed from our everyday life that they are basically incomprehensible to the human mind. Their surface is so smooth that a mirror is a mountain range in comparison, and so dense and hard that a diamond is like the vacuum of outer space in comparison. The surface gravity is so strong that it very visibly bends light, and any matter will get crushed into it so hard that even its constituent particles will break and fuse into neutrons. The whole star has a mass of tens of suns and can rotate even at over a thousand revolutions per second. Because of this incomprehensibly rapid rotation speed, the star is actually a spheroid instead of a pure sphere, regardless of its density: That's how fast it rotates. And when the rotation slows down over time due to loss of energy, an unstoppable force (gravity) will acting on an immovable object (the surface of the star)... When the rotation speed has slowed down enough, the surface will give way and the ''entire'' star will restructure as a slightly less elongated spheroid... an event that's so immensely powerful that it emits an incredible amount of energy to outer space as a big flash.
** The spacetime inside of a black hole is one of the most alien regions we have yet speculated. While black holes do not "suck" things in, past the event horizon the gravity from the singularity has distorted space time so much that all paths lead deeper into the black hole. This is why light cannot escape a black hole, not because the escape velocity would exceed the speed of light, but because there is literally no path out, only deeper.
