Capes have the obvious effect of making the wearer look larger and more imposing. Thus artists often use them as a way to make characters look {{Badass}}. Just look at {{Franchise/Batman}} over there. He wouldn't look half as awesome without his cape.

* RedsWithRockets experienced a shortage of [[BadassLongcoat Badass Longcoats]] during WorldWarII, but instead greatly valued their waterproofed shelter-halves, which could be [[http://waralbum.ru/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/445257389_o.jpg this trope]] - or [[MundaneUtility a tent]].

* [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] in WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles, along with many other superhero tropes. Edna points out the inherent danger of dragging a long cloth behind you in rather gruesome ways.[[spoiler: Syndrome's death is caused by his cape, reminiscent of Stratogale's earlier]].

* Parodied in the Literature/Discworld book ''Discworld/AHatFullOfSky''. Tiffany, under the influence of a [[GrandTheftMe hiver]], goes out to purchase a cloak for herself. The store owner guides her to two options: a thick, practical cloak, and a thin, midnight black cape that billows dramatically at the slightest wind but is too fragile for any proper use. Being NotHerself, Tiffany picks the latter. Once she comes back to herself, she notes that it's very pretty but useless for a working witch.

** The PS3 version on the second HD rerelease collection has Terra's armor to suddenly gain it's cape at the end of the final battle of BBS, allowing it to retain in in the bonus battle in [=KH2=] HD without causing a continuity error.

* ''Franchise/TheIncredibles'' [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructs]] the BadassCape trope by painting them as AwesomeButImpractical. There's a surprisingly large number of supers who got killed because their [[CapeSnag cape snagged]] on something [[spoiler: including Syndrome at the end of the movie.]]

* In ''VideoGame/ImmortalSouls'', Desmond has a long red one attached to his PowerArmor, seemingly as a marker of him being the leader of his otherwise identically-armored KnightsTemplar.
