** The material was apparently called "fancloth" in the Age of Legends, and some characters with know-how can make more than cloaks with it. Before he reveals himself, the newly-resurrected [[TheDragon Moridin] stalks various protagonists and a few of the other [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Forsaken]] swathed in the stuff from head to toe [[RequiredSecondaryPowers (except for his eyes.)]]

** Cloaking Devices have been a mainstay of the series since "Balance of Terror" in ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries''. Employed mainly by the Romulans, Klingons, Suliban, and even by the Federation itself (for their ''Defiant''-class warships).
** The Romulans once tried to take this UpToEleven with a "phase cloak" that would make starships not only invisible, but able to pass through normal matter. Unbeknownst to them, a Starfleet InsaneAdmiral illegally beat them to it.

* In ''MondayNightCombat'', this was one of the abilities of the Assassin class. ''Super Monday Night Combat'' tweaked it quite a bit; now it only makes you invisible to enemy players at a certain distance, but you're completely invisible to enemy bots and turrets.

* In the ''{{Starfist}}'' series by David Sherman and Dan Cragg, Confederation Marine combat uniforms are called "chameleons" - they incorporate an otherwise undescribed technology that approximates the color of objects in the uniform's near vicinity. Chameleons only work in visible spectrum, a weakness that is ruthlessly exploited by the series' recurring AliensAndMonsters.\\

* In the ''WheelOfTime'' series by Robert Jordan, Warders' cloaks blended with the scenery, making their heads and legs appear disembodied when the cloaks were worn. It's also possible to make a sort of invisibility field using the One Power, but it has to be anchored in place because it causes a weird ripple effect when it moves.

* In ''JohnCWright'''s [[Literature/ChroniclesOfChaos Orphans of Chaos]] series, the characters get the Ring of Gyges (from Greek mythology, see above) from the horse-shaped tomb of Gyges. It can hide the wearer from normal and paranormal sense impressions selectively. Colin Mac [=FirBolg=] does his best sniveling Gollum impersonation before donning it.\\

* The Belt Ghemmal in ''Literature/TheNeverendingStory'' that Xayide gives to Bastian, is made of glass and makes the wearer invisible. Bastian was disconcerted the first time he wore it as he couldn't even see himself so he couldn't take it off without Xayide's help.

* In the IncarnationsOfImmortality novel "Under a Velvet Cloak," Karena finds from Morgan Le Fae that the velvet cloak has magical properties. Morgan teaches Karena how to use the invisibility, phase through the ground, protect the wearer from attack, and finally the spell Karena wanted --- "Locate a person," to find her lost lover.

* In ''Literature/TheDeathGateCycle'', the SecretPolice of the Arianus elves are known as the Unseen because they wear special outfits that blend in with whatever they are adjacent to. While not truly invisible, someone wearing one is very difficult for even a trained observer to see if they move slowly.
