** Certain [[AlwaysAccurateAttack no-miss moves]] like Aerial Ace and Faint Attack sometimes work like this in the anime. They start out as a regular charge at the opponent, until they get close, where they flash step directly to hitting the target, sometimes from different angles. However, the way these attacks work is effectively rewritten each time they show up, and sometimes the flash step part is forgotten.

** The anime plays "Faint Attack" as more of a LookBehindYou, but {{Fanon}} sometimes writes it as one of these. It depends entirely on RuleOfCool.
** Sometimes, "Faint Attack" is the Pokémon [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin pretending to faint, then attacking]] when the opponent has let its guard down. Dark-type moves are primarily underhanded tactics.

* You might not think an ostensibly real-world sports manga would use this, but ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis'' has several characters do flash-step techniques, most notably the entirety of Hiba's team.

* Lord Aterra in TrueVillains is able to do this, likely because he is just dang powerful. And after Sebastian gets his aura fixed, he is able to do this as well in the fight against the Paladin.

* 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 StealthHiBye. Also Genma's DangerousForbiddenTechnique uses this, but it seems to rely on stealth as much as on speed if not more.

* Mai from ''VisualNovel/{{Kanon}}'': Not exactly in the visual novel, however, in ''VideoGame/EternalFighterZero'' she's able to confuse opponents with flash steps that can be done at varying distances, and can be used for both offense and defense; She can even combine this with her [[IaijutsuPractitioner Iaijutsu]] technique, allowing her to draw, attack and resheathe her sword at lightning-fast speed. One of her Supers, referencing a similar move by [[VideoGame/TheLastBlade Hibiki]], starts with a very fast, near invisible flash step.

* ''{{Bionicle}}'' had several characters who could use SuperSpeed or teleportation, but out of them only Pohatu ended up using his for flash-stepping, and even then mostly because his upgraded power could warp him through solid objects.

* In ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', Judy was able to boot Nick's stroller while he was talking to her, much to his surprise. Later, she uses FastTunnelling to appear on the other side of a fence before Nick finishes climbing it, again much to his surprise.
