Compare GentlemanThief and ClassyCatBurglar, both of which can overlap with this trope. If part of their motivation is the thrill of stealing, then they may have StickyFingers. See also LoveableRogue and AntiHero. Does not require that the thief in question be [[OurGhostsAreDifferent an actual phantom]], though such a character ''can'' still fit this trope. And it ''definite'' does not refer to a thief who steals ghosts.

* ''{{Pathfinder}}'' has a rogue archetype literally named phantom thief. Described in flavor text as a career choice for aristocrats looking for excitement in their lives and breaking into the most secure places just for the thrill of it and often leaving a nice calling card behind rather than stealing anything, it removes the sneak attack, trap finding and trap sense class features to instead give massive bonuses to the use of skills, even more class skills and skill points to spend and more options for rogue talents, making the phantom thief archetype the ultimate skill monkey and infiltrator.

* Doctor Strange dabbles in this in ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' - things stolen so far include Harry's phoenix feather from the back-pocket of one of the two most powerful telepaths ever to live, Alastor Moody's wooden leg, and [[ItMakesSenseInContext Loki's disembodied head. Twice.]] In the latter case, he actually left a note: "I.O.U. one Loki." Considering that he'd just delivered it to Asgard, after swiping it from under the nose of an extremely powerful necromancer with SuperSenses, it's likely that he did it just to prove he could. All of this happens as part of his usual habit of treating the Laws of Physics as optional extras.

** It gets to the point that in the sequel, Thor bluntly states that if Strange wanted to pinch the Tesseract from Asgard's vaults, he could.
