* ''WebOriginal/ShadowhunterPeril'' has Umbra Darkholme, who in his fight with Azazel uses flash steps to try and take the shifter down. Unfortunately for him, Azazel shifts into Umbra and copies his powers, so they are BOTH trying to flash step each other into submission and it ends up going nowhere until Azazel stops moving and tries to absorb Umbra. [[CurbStompBattle Umbra flicks him off and proceeds to vaporize him.]]

** Fellow ninjas Series/NinpuuSentaiHurricaneger (PowerRangersNinjaStorm in America) also had this power, and when the two teams met up in the beginning of ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'', they did it together.

*** In 5e this ability goes to monks who chose the way of shadow. This time it can be used to instantly teleport up to 60 feet in dim light or darkness regardless of creature/character placement, so it is much more practical.

*** A more traditional example appears when Goku first turns Super Saiyan against Frieza: Goku dodges Frieza's death beam attack, previously so fast no character even saw it being performed, by simply shifting to the left a few inches.

Often combined with RapidFireFisticuffs when used in combat. May result in TeleportSpam, but beware if InertiaIsACruelMistress. When two people do this repeatedly, see NoIAmBehindYou. Also often used to avoid actually animating fight scenes, which with the flash step can be a slideshow of sword clangs and a ''woosh'' sound to indicate the characters are moving so fast you can't see them. Alternatively, what seems like a flash step in-universe can be represented to the audience by a character moving at "normal" speed in a BulletTime sequence. See also OffscreenTeleportation, VillainTeleportation and DoppelgangerSpin when the person is so fast they leave afterimages.

** While it may technically not be considered a Flash Step, Feral Combat druids have an ability called Feral Charge that acts the same way. This ability causes you to leap behind an enemy and daze them for a few seconds. Even if used when not stealthed, the player will still have a moment to attack before the enemy realizes the player is behind them.
