Being epic level, the halfing has the Escape Artist skill "Extremely Tight Space" which lets them slip into extremely tight spaces, one inch square for them. That explains why they could plan this attack for this long.[[/labelnote]]

!!Non-video game examples:
'''Other'''
* This can literally be done in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' 3.5 edition, if the entire party is [[UpToEleven good enough]] at the Escape Artist skill. It can also occur simply if one or more players are playing as Tiny races, such as fairies or sprites, as they can quite comfortably fit into a normal-sized backpack or even belt pouch.
** Or if you're really creative, you can do... [[http://i.imgur.com/ID5lmnT.png this]]. (NSFW text)
* Played straight in the fan made video [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMerTgmSn5w Final Fantasy Solar Crystal Legend]] at around the 2:25 mark.

Some games avert this to a degree by never showing multiple party members on the world map, such as early ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'' games, leaving only the question of where your other party members are hiding.

* [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in ''VideoGame/{{Pokemon}}'', as your party is ''literally'' in your pocket (hence the name "Pocket Monsters"), or on your belt, or wherever the characters keep Poké Balls. The only exception to this occurs in the ''Yellow'' version, in which the Pikachu you receive at the beginning of the game refuses to go in its Poké Ball (unless it faints or is being healed at the Pokemon Center) and follows you around through the game, in an obvious reference to the anime.
** Not to mention that Poké Balls [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration are a key part of capturing new Pokémon]].
** [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver HeartGold and SoulSilver]] allow you to let the first Pokémon in your lineup follow you around, though the rest of the party remains in their Poké Balls. They even move in front of the player when called upon to [[MundaneUtility use an HM move]].

to:

* ''VideoGame/JoJosBizarreAdventureEyesOfHeaven'' has a literal and justified example, since it uses a canon character: Coco Jumbo, a turtle from ''[[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureVentoAureo Vento Aureo]]'' whose [[FightingSpirit Stand]] lets people enter an extradimensional "hotel room" within his back. For much of the game, [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureStardustCrusaders Jotaro]] carries Coco around in his jacket pocket, pulling him out when new people join the group or when he needs to speak with someone.

** That was also {{Hand Wave}}ed when it was implemented. The lore explanation was that the ''mount'' wasn't in your bag, just the reins, which were magical and could summon the mount.

* ''VideoGame/{{Trine}}'' had an iteresting twist on this; the three main characters are SharingABody due to the titicular artifact, and can switch form based on the situation at hand.

** In ''VideoGame/{{Tales of Phantasia}}'' (PSX), when certain [=NPCs=] (Rhea and Brambard) join your party, they actually show up in the party screen, though they don't show up in combat and their stat screen simply says "NPC".

* The ''VideoGame/{{Star Ocean}}'' series have the party members off on their own when the main hero enters a town. In cutscenes, usually the members relevant to that scene only pop up.

** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' and ''[[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Persona 4]]'' notably avert it, as party members follow after you in the dungeons, and can even get separated from you or get in your way while you're trying to maneuver (this last mostly in P3, though).

to:

* Done as well in ''VideoGame/{{Lunarosse}}'' with the old "fade out and party members appear" trick.
* ''VideoGame/RakenzarnTales'' also plays it straight with the fade out maneuver. While it's justified for the party members, as Kyuu explicitly has the power to teleport them in and out at will with his book, allowing them to suddenly be there as needed, it doesn't quite explain where the [=NPCs=] you start gathering show up from.

* Used confusingly in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin''. You can have both your characters onscreen, but whichever one you're not controlling becomes a sort of magic image; it takes only MP damage and can be dismissed at any time. The game knows this makes no sense and doesn't really try to explain it. But there's a cute [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] -- if you hold Up in front of Vincent with just one character out, he panics, fearing that the worst has happened to your partner.

* Used confusingly in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin''. You can have both your characters onscreen, but with whichever one on you're not controlling following close by, and can be used to add to attacks, assist in pushing, or even a handy footstool. Sometimes however, this becomes a sort of magic image; it trouble in itself, as your partner takes MP damage(and only MP damage thankfully) when hit, and one boss can even turn one against the other. to prevent this, the other partner can be dismissed at any time.
