* 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.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' has it in the form of 'Blind-Side' damage and occasionally combines it with CombinationAttack via Link Strikes which are often triggered this way.

* In ''Videogame/LetItDie'', you ''suplex'' unaware enemies from behind, and since it's this game's equivalent of a stealth attack no one hears your fighter screaming when he smashes their friend's head to the ground.

* In ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'', you can hit someone with your gun. Normally this is pretty ineffective, but from behind it's a one-hit kill. Flood, naturally, are immune to this (it's pretty damn hard to get behind them in the first place anyway) but Hunters will drop. This was fixed for the sequels, as was one-shotting them from behind with anything but a sniper rifle.
** Less ineffective within later games, as melee attacks practically half-kill someone, making it an important move at close-range with weapons less suited for it.
