* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' does the mid-air teleport-behind-the-opponent variety. Used often in the ''Budokai'' video games. Slightly confusingly, the series has both super-speed and teleportation proper (Instantaneous Movement). The only difference between the two in practice is that Instantaneous Movement lets you move over intergalactic distances (or even to other planes of existence; on a few occasions Goku uses it to ''teleport to the afterlife''), which normal super-speed can't.

** Amazingly, Hercule/Mr. Satan, the {{Muggle}} FakeUltimateHero, is capable of doing this. He first uses it to dodge a rocket fired at Buu, appearing to kick one of the attackers in the face (who were a sizable distance away) a few moments later. He then does it onscreen later when he's threatened by one of the gunmen. Unfortunately, the gunman panics, fires randomly, and manages to hit him anyway, but it still saves Hercule's life by turning a certainly fatal shot into one Majin Buu can heal him from.

** Some fights have sequences of shockwaves originating from seemingly random points in the sky as the fighters use their incredible speed to land superhuman blows to one another as they fly around the battleground. One of the most notable examples of this trope in play was Goku vs. Jeice and Berter, two members of the super-elite [[QuirkyMiniBossSquad Ginyu Force]]. For most of the fight, Goku was dodging and moving fast enough that neither Jeice nor Berter (the latter being the physically fastest character known at the time) could follow him, though they could sense that he was moving around, including moving right next to them as they flew in for an attack. For most of the fight, Goku looked like he was simply standing still.
** Amazingly, Hercule/Mr. Satan, the {{Muggle}} FakeUltimateHero, Satan is capable of doing this. He It's amazing, because he mixes BadassOnPaper and FakeUltimateHero, his considerable martial arts skills arguably making him among he top 10 strongest humans in the verse, but he's still only human-level; the top 5 humans are considerable {{Super Weight}}s in their own right, and pale in comparison to their less-human buddies. Hercule/Mr. Satan first uses it a flash step to dodge a rocket fired at Buu, appearing to kick one of the attackers in the face (who were a sizable distance away) a few moments later. He then does it onscreen later when he's threatened by one of the gunmen. Unfortunately, the gunman panics, fires randomly, and manages to hit him anyway, but it still saves Hercule's life by turning a certainly fatal shot into one Majin Buu can heal him from.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Titanfall 2}}'', the Ronin's "Phase Dash" tactical ability allows it to phase into another plane of existence for a brief moment, allowing it to essentially teleport. Pilots can also use this ability on a smaller scale on themselves.

* Occasionally used in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' by particularly fast characters such as Ranma and Happosai. Sometimes in battle, like how Ranma did so to Tatewaki Kuno in one of their first fights, but also when messing with people such as to perform a HiBye. Also Genma's DangerousForbiddenTechnique uses this, but it seems to rely on stealth as much as on speed if not more.

* [[CoolTeacher Koro-Sensei]] in ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'' has [[HolyShitQuotient MACH 20]]. This creature can [[ExcuseMeWhileIMultitask dodge bullets fired at him by twenty-six students while taking their attendance]]. He only gets more {{Badass}} from there.

** {{Badass}} Black {{Ninja}} Raven also can do this, even having a move that allows him to backflip through the opponent if facing them from behind. One of his intro sequences also involves him slowly walking towards the person and vanishing, causing the character to spin around and find him standing with his arms crossed.
