* PlayedForLaughs in ''Film/DoctorStrange'', since the Cloak of Levitation is sentient: Strange wants to go one direction, his Cloak insists they should go another. Cue Cloak yanking on Strange's neck as if it were caught on something in midair.

* In ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' Darth Vader's gets caught in the toilet. In this case he was already stuck there since his arm got caught while trying to figure out how to remove his suit, so the cape simply made things worse.

** RealLifeWritesThePlot: The real reason for "no capes" was that Pixar didn't want to animate flowing capes.

** In the typical DC universe, Batman's cape clasp has a quick-release mechanism that automatically detaches his cape from his cowl if it gets caught in something specifically for this reason. Of course he'd have a detachable cape, this is '''[[CrazyPrepared Batman]]''' we're talking about! Anything a crook might try to use against him, he's already thought of and planned for. For all of this, it helps that the cape has (in many versions) a practical function: as a glider, or at least a parachute (since Bats is of course a BadassNormal with no actual superpowers), and numerous iterations have him using the cape in close combat to stun or ensnare opponents.
