** A few SCPs, like [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-650 SCP-650]] and [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-689 SCP-689]], can teleport when not being directly observed by a human. For SCP-650 this is its entire shtick: as soon as you take your eyes off of it it teleports to right behind you and waits for you to turn around.

* The Ultimate Warrior gained this power during his brief time in WCW, filling the ring with smoke to obscure his appearance and disappearance. [[spoiler: The effect was achieved by a trapdoor installed in the ring. Management failed to tell the wrestlers in advance though, leading to several injuries as guys landed badly on it throughout the show]].

* Subverted in ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/122849/changeling Changeling]]'' where it turns out that [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Pinkie Pie]] is actually ''fifteen'' separate changelings, which is how she always appears nearby.

* Played with in ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', in which Othar Tryggvassen, GentlemanAdventurer! repeatedly falls out of the zeppelin-attached Castle Wulfenbach, only to appear again without explanation. (It's indicated he might have managed to first ''land on'' and then ''take over'' a small blimp. Then fly it back to the Castle.)

** That last sentence just described the Burger King in a nutshell. Though more the former.



** He does this about 95% of the time. Because he is just that fast.



* ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'' does this on a regular basis.

* Lucky Roux the constantly-eating pirate does this in the first ''Manga/OnePiece'' chapter to move up and shoot a bandit who had his captain at gunpoint, leading some fans to speculate that he has super-speed.

* In Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion, by the time it takes two hundred-odd foot tall monster Zeurel to levitate down a hole he's just blasted himself and into the bridge (which admittedly may not be via a straight path), Shinji is able to ''run'' down there, get into his [[HumongousMecha Evangelion]] and [[DynamicEntry interrupt Zeruel before he can fire a laser beam]].
* Manga/DragonBall Z plays this straight during the early part of Goku's battle with Cell. The camera is centered on Cell, with Goku's limbs coming in from all different directions, with a new limb coming onto the screen the instant that the previous one is gone.

* OkGo's video for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qybUFnY7Y8w "This Too Shall Pass"]] has the band members standing at various locations throughout the set of an enormous RubeGoldbergDevice. Though we never see them walk or run from one place to another, they each show up at several different locations during the course of the video.

* Seamus' "Back Alley" ability in ''{{Malifaux}}'' allows him to relocate IF no enemies can currently see him. Fitting for Malifaux's UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper equivalent.
