* A Smoke Out is used at least once by every character of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' with a slightly shady or ninja-esque martial art, including Ranma, Mousse, Kodachi, Genma, Happōsai, and Konatsu. Ukyō Kuonji uses a flour bomb to create the smoke, as part of her [[MartialArtsAndCrafts Okonomiyaki Martial Art]].

Note that they all make a similar gesture doing so; apparently, Smoke Out are quite standardized.

* [[{{Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame}} Esmeralda]] does this with pink smoke to escape from [[{{LightIsNotGood}} Frollo]] in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance''. She manages to escape thanks to [[TheLancer Riku]] lying to [[{{TheDragon}} Phoebus]] that he did not see her.

* ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'' has several items that fit this trope: The Smoke Bomb, which releases a burst of white smoke and makes it harder for monsters to see you[[labelnote:*]]though it doesn't work if the monster already knows you're there[[/labelnote]], the Farcaster, which releases a burst of green smoke and teleports you back to the base camp, and Deodorant, which releases a burst of sky blue smoke that clears away the Soiled status effect.
** The Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate incarnation of Chameleos uses not only poisonous gas emissions as before, but also releases its own fog that interferes with players' sight and hearing.
* [[SupportPartyMember Support Class]] soldiers in ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'' gain the ability to throw one smoke grenade per mission as their first ability. Any unit in the smoke gains a +20 defense bonus. Other smoke grenade related abilities are Smoke And Mirrors, granting them extra grenades, unlocked at [[SergeantRock Sergeant rank]], and one between Dense Smoke (increases smoke grenades area of effect and the defense bonus to +40), or [[SuperSerum Combat Drugs]], giving +20 Will and +10% critical chance for one turn to units in the cloud at [[TheCaptain Captain rank]].

** This regular schtick backfires on Darkwing at least once when he faces some FOWL goons; he creates some smoke and enters it for his entrance in front of them, but the guards, familiar with this move, simply punch into the cloud and connect, since they knew [[GenreSavvy Darkwing would be in there.]]

** Parodied at the end of the episode [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E6BoastBusters "Boast Busters"]]. Trixie does this after being one-upped by Twilight Sparkle, but once the smoke clears we see her running off over the horizon.

** In [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E4LunaEclipsed "Luna Eclipsed"]], Zecora does a Smoke In to make a dramatic entrance, as part of the special effects she uses to tell the spooky story of Nightmare Moon.

* CombatArms has smoke grenades among other {{Trick Bomb}}s what's interesting is that instead, they're generally used to cover a Close Quarters oriented player and make sniping him far more difficult while he gets into the building the snipers are in. If he succeeds expect a MassOhCrap from the said snipers.

* A naval variation in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarships:'' this is a common tactic for destroyers, who usually drop a smokescreen behind them and sail away in a hurry when they encounter any sort of enemy resistance. Sneakier or more aggressive destroyers will actually hang out in the smokescreen to launch waves of torpedoes at anyone foolish enough to come close to the smoke to investigate. However, experienced players tend to be wise to this tactic and often retaliate by firing into the smoke at sea level or blanketing the smoked-out area with torpedoes of their own.

* The smokebomb is the only "engineering" device that non-Engineers can learn to create in ''VideoGame/ProjectZomboid''. Made from newspaper, rags, and a [[MacGyvering therapeutic coldpack]], a smokebomb can obscure your withdrawal from a zombie horde of a decent size. Combined with electrical skill and spare parts, it can have an adjustable timer, a proximity trigger, or a remote detonator.

* ''Fallen Angels''. In the episode "Tomorrow I Die" (based on a story by Literature/MickeySpillane), the protagonist is taken hostage by some bank robbers, who intend to execute them after they RunForTheBorder. To gain time he drives near the curb of a dirt road, kicking up dust into the vehicle behind them which eventually goes off the road and crashes. It works better than he expected, as the vehicle was carrying the loot and ends up at the bottom of a quarry, where they can't climb down till daylight.
