Added DiffLines:

* ''[[Franchise/JakAndDaxter Jak X:Combat Racing]]'' features them as possible Red Eco pick-up. Like OilSlick it doesn't do any damage in its base version, but upgrades to smoke screen charged with electricity that can be lethal if released in narrow pathway.

A fairly standard disappearing trick, favored by {{ninja}}, {{stage magician}}s, and Franchise/{{Batman}}. Drop a clever little {{smoke bomb}} that puffs up and dissipates quickly, slip away during the distraction. A smoke cover apparently qualifies as being "offscreen" enough for OffscreenTeleportation, allowing a user to escape even if he or she was standing in a clear area where his/her exit would be seen at least by the viewer if not an opponent.

* Sheik escapes this way from Link several times in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime''. In ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosMelee'' this was actually turned into her recovery move. Impa, the Princess's badass nanny, also shows the ability to do this once. Keep in mind though that, in ''Ocarina'', there is no actual smoke, only a moment of blinding light. It helps that Sheik is magic, though. To be specific, the sheikahs use Deku Nuts, which blind you and daze you. Link and the player see it as them instantly disappearing, but what actually happens is Link loses his awareness giving ample time for them to get away. You can do this yourself with the in game enemies, as the Deku Nut is a useable item.

Added DiffLines:

* A strange variation happens in ''VideoGame/{{Unturned}}''. The smoke grenade attracts hostile creatures (zombies, wolves and bears) into the dense colored cloud it forms, allowing the player to sneak by them safely. Of course, against human foes, the smoke bomb works as expected.

* ''Webcomic/SlightlyDamned'': The demon alchemist Tsavo uses a [[http://www.sdamned.com/comic/644 purple vial]] that he shakes then breaks to make a purple cloud to escape a group of angels [[IWantThemAlive without killing them]], the complete disappearance is [[JustifiedTrope justified]] as Tsavo is a wind demon [[AirborneMook which can fly]] and later we see he [[http://www.sdamned.com/comic/660 escaped to some tree branches.]]

* Security in the site-specific play ''Tales Told by Idiots'' attempts to flee at the end of the show this way. Nothing happens when he throws the smoke bomb, leading the other characters (and the audience) to stare at him for a few seconds, until he says, "If you'll excuse me, I have to go return some smoke bombs," and sheepishly walks away.

Added DiffLines:

* Frost uses a ki variation of the attack in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' to escape from Android #18 after he managed to knock out Krillin from the arena and later uses it to escape from Vegeta after the latter broke free from the Evil Containment Wave seal. Kahseral also deploys a similar tactic when he realize that he stood no chance against Android #17.

* In ''Videogame/PokemonGo'', a Wild Pokémon will suddenly burst into smoke and flee an encounter if you fail to catch it.

-->Oh no! The wild [insert Pokémon name here] fled.

* In ''Literature/LoyalEnemies'', {{Weredragon}} [[MeaningfulName Gloom]] can breathe a dark, thick, fog-like substance (aptly called "the Darkness""). The heroes use it once to escape a pack of werewolf-ghoul hybrids that's pursuing them.
