* ''Film/DoctorStrange2016'''s Cloak of Levitation is a very ''literal'' example: Not only does it look cool, but it possesses a semi-conciousness and is actually better in combat than the hero himself. (particularly the up-close-and-personal type of fighting - fancy a cape wrapped around your head, slamming you into the floor?). It's also the biggest {{Spotlight Steal|ingSquad}}er in the film.

It may be the only badass cape more badass than its wearer.

* Often present in leader characters in ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000''. Also more than a few slightly odd examples, as many of the factions wear PoweredArmor, the standard form requiring a power plant backpack. So most capes are tailored to pin to the shoulders but must have space cut out to allow the backpack to plug into the armors, also constricting the cape down to right about the waist. In some instances, they just pin the cape to the back of their ([[ShoulderOfDoom enormous]]) pauldrons, avoiding an complexified cut, but leaving the cape hanging a bit low on the back. Capes are just one, but perhaps the most common, of a few unusual uniforms worn ''over'' power armor, others include robes, togas, and in one case a lab coat of [[GenuineHumanHide human leather]].

* In ''PrincessGwenevereAndTheJewelRiders'' many characters are wearing capes, but only the baddie, Lady Kale, has a truly badass one: huge, flowing [[DramaticWind in dramatic wind]] and motion, and used by her in a theatrically evil manner. (Not so much badass when it lands over her head, though.)
