* In an early issue of ''ComicBook/{{Excalibur}}'' Shadowcat and Phoenix (temporarily de-powered) are bound upside-down, by their legs. Shadowcat shows off her ninja skills (last seen in the ''Kitty Pryde and Wolverine'' mini-series) to slip out of boots and free herself. Phoenix comments that she couldn't do that even if she knew how, since her costume is literally one piece and went up to her neck. Kitty comments that she could probably still pull it off, if not for embarrassment.

* Pops up in medieval legends of "Black Colleges". After the Devil shows the students whatever books they ask for, they all rush out of the room, with the slowest student being caught by the cloak and dragged back inside as the Devil's payment. If they're [[GenreSavvy smart]] they'll toss their cloak just as they get to the door and be home free.

* ''AreYouAfraidOfTheDark'' contains a surprisingly tragic example in the BackStory of "The Tale of the Frozen Ghost". A little boy caught his neighbor's farmhand hiding the gold from a bank robbery. He ran, but the robber caught him in the woods. The kid managed to get away when the guy ripped off his coat... and subsequently froze to death that night in the woods.
