** The [[FallenAngel Fallen]] even have a whole skill tree of backstabbing-based powers that employ a special backstabbing dagger. The entire ''class'' was specifically based on a player character described only as "A rogue angel out to stab you in the back".

* In the SurvivalHorror videogames ''VideoGame/TheEvilWithin'' and ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilRevelations2'', backstabbing is one of the combat options that it behooves a player to master, since straight-up melee combat is less than stellar and ammunition is rare and best saved for bosses (who are immune to this ability, obvious). Exactly how the stealth kill is achieved depends on the character; Sebastian grabs his enemy by the throat and drives his knife into their skull, Claire and Barry knock their victim down and stab them with their knives, and Moira bludgeons them over the head with her crowbar.

* Seeing as he's based on the standard Franchise/FinalFantasy class, it should surprise no one that Thief of ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'' favours this tactic, typically resorting to this move first if he's forced into a fight. Of course, [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder he'll back stab you in more ways than one.]]

As with OneHitKill, some enemies can be [[KungFuProofMook immune]] to this. The opposite of this is typically the FinishingMove.

* Sneak Attack is a possible feat in ''MutantsAndMasterminds'' although the ability is capped as with all damage, so the best one can do with it is to accomplish the same level of damage as everyone else in certain situations. Sneak Attack is one of the many useful, cheaper ways to hit your caps with regularity.

** Third edition renamed the ability from "backstab" to "sneak attack" because it was no longer required to be behind the enemy to use it; you simply had to catch the enemy by surprise or in a position where they cannot adequately defend itself. The damage bonus changed from multiplying the weapon's damage to doing bonus dice damage stacked onto the weapon damage. The weapon restriction was also removed.
