* Marvel Comics: Eric Payne, Devil-Slayer. He wears an item called a Shadow Cloak (looks more cape-like or cloak-like, DependingOnTheArtist) that can teleport himself and others across space and to various dimensions, and to draw out various weapons from other places or worlds. Its main limitation is that it can't handle items or people exceeding 1,000 pounds at once. Sword? Yes. M-1 tank? No.

Added DiffLines:

* Catman wears a cape that he claims is enchanted to give its wearer nine lives (though whether that means it lets them reinvent themselves, resurrects them, or heals them from mortal injury (or all three) is not made clear). However, it's never made explicitly clear whether it can actually do this, or whether Catman only believes it can.

* Utsuho from ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' is a nuclear powered hell raven that [[http://safebooru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=364685 wears a starry night cape over her wings]]. Fellow FinalBoss Byakuren also wears a cape, if a considerably less mind-bending one. Then there's Wriggle, but, as a stage one boss, she's not exactly badass, with the cape mearly standing in for her insect wings.

* As mentioned above in the entry for Sailor Moon, Yuuga Yamato's Tuxedo Mask in Theatre/SeraMyu has one. Add copious amounts of CapeSwish, profit from squealing {{Fangirls}}.

* ''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]].
