* 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 after his crowning. [[spoiler: He even dies wearing a particularly elegant one.]] Members of the City Watch of King's Landing are known colloquially as "gold cloaks" because of their conspicuous gold cloaks. However, this is {{defied}} by Bronn, who insists a cape slows you down in a fight. The Northmen have even an iconic style of capes and cloaks secured by belts crossing on chest. Nowadays, when you see these X-belts, you immediately think "Game of Thrones!".

Roose owns a very dashing fur cloak, complete with a subtle CapeSwish in Season 2. He also fought with his men as can be seen with the blood on his face.

** Comicbook/{{Robin}} [[LegacyCharacter always]] wears a cape. [[SidekickGraduationsStick Nightwing]] doesn't. The presence of a cape has been given several {{justifi|edTrope}}cations in canon beyond the theatrics; it contains armor, allows gliding ''and'' you can grab someone who's falling from the roof of a train.

** Kami and Dende, wears capes in their role as Guardian God of Earth (since they are weaker than the Kais, the Gods of Earth probably wear capes to appear more godly).
** In addition to Piccolo, Kami, and Dende, various Namekians also wear capes (apparently capes are popular fashion on Namek) though their not as badass as Piccolo's.



** Prince Vegeta as a child in anime filler and his childhood flashback in "Battle of Gods" (both the film and Dragon Ball Super adaption). Stopped wearing one as an adult.

** Piccolo's cape is attached to heavy weighted [[ShouldersOfDoom shoulder pads]]. He uses it for training and takes it off to fight or [[http://pa1.narvii.com/6105/ff64ee44a1c272d823082cc007c52664d282fc93_hq.gif shows if off]]. Gohan gets one just like it for the Cell Games. Later, in the film "Broly: Second Coming", Krillin wears Piccolo's cape.
** Garlic Jr in the, you guessed it, Garlic Jr Saga.

cape while saving Gohan. In the film "Resurrection 'F'", Piccolo even uses his weighted cape as to defeat a one of Frieza's Soldiers by throwing it to one of them causing the weight to pull the soldier (who was flying at the time) down to the ground removing him from the fight, while at the same time removing its weight so he could go all out against the remaining dumbstruck soldiers.
** Garlic Jr in the, you guessed it, Garlic Jr Saga.Saga as well as his original appearance in the "Dead Zone" film.
** Frieza's father King Cold and his henchman Zarbon also wear capes attached to their Battle Armor.
** King Vegeta in anime filler, flashbacks in some of the films, and Dragon Ball Super's adaption of "Battle of Gods" ("Broly, The Legendary Super Saiyan" & "Battle of Gods").

Added DiffLines:

** Subverted with Krennic in ''Film/RogueOne''. While he has a cape, unlike Vader's, it responds realistically to wind and similar inconveniences, giving the impression that he's far less powerful or secure than the Emperor's ''real'' high-ranking minions.
