Some characters -- often of the {{Badass}} variety -- have a mysterious way of controlling even the very fabric of their clothing. They can [[ShapeShifting turn their cape]] (generally a single piece of cloth) into a pair of [[WingedHumanoid fully functional wings]] (generally ''not'' a single piece of cloth), and then back again without any damage.

* They serve no practical purpose (he can't fly with them), but [[CodeGeass Lelouch]] was probably attempting to invoke this motif with his [[MyHeroZero Zero disguise]], given that [[http://www.pureanimegallery.com/d/4415-1/ZERO-code-geass.jpg it appears to be a cape-like cloak when settled around his shoulders]], [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m7umfh31Hb1rcqu9ao1_500.gif but the cape is revealed to be split into two "wings" when he]] [[LargeHam dramatically throws it/them back]], recalling this trope's imagery.
