* The eponymous Mistborn of the ''{{Mistborn}}'' trilogy wear these. They have all sorts of nifty adaptions that just make them ''so freaking awesome.'' They are ''the'' status symbol of the 'verse.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/DoctorStrange'''s Cloak of Levitation not only looks cool, but 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.

* 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]].

* A lot of characters in ''Series/GameOfThrones'' wear them, including the Kingsguard, the Night's Watch, and a lot of characters from the North. Robb Stark stands out in particular, being a peerless general who wears a magnificent fur-lined cape in almost all of his scenes. [[spoiler: He even dies wearing a particularly elegant one.]]

However, this is {{defied}} by Bronn, who insists a cape slows you down in a fight.

* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'': All versions of Supergirl wear a flowing, awesome cape. Even her Red Lantern uniform in ''Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' included a badass, red-and-black cape. In ''Comicbook/SupergirlRebirth'', her cape is so badass than she uses it to deflect burning rocks.
