* Played mostly straight in ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja'', but parodied in one episode where the eponymous doctor is so used to doing this that he reflexively uses it to escape from an awkward social encounter.

* Played mostly straight in ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja'', but parodied in one episode where the eponymous doctor is so used to doing this that he reflexively uses it to escape from an awkward social encounter. There's also the instance where he tries to use a Smoke Out to escape [[BigBad King Radical]]'s lair after being found out, only to realize he'd used his bombs all up earlier, forcing him to have to fight his way out instead.

* In the ''Franchise/SlyCooper'' games, the Smoke Bomb is a very handy means of escape as it will instantly cause guards to not see you during a conflict or chase, and you can deploy one even whilst running. And if they do spot you running away, the extra distance will greatly help in making an escape to safety.

* ''VideoGame/AtlasReactor'': Kaigin has smoke bombs, which block enemy line-of-sight and turns him invisible until the next round. Celeste has smoke grenades, which produce less smoke but deal damage when they hit.

** In ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', Batman uses one during his fight with Superman. He doesn't go far, but it allows him to get the drop on the Man of Steel and shoot him with a Kryptonite gas grenade. [[AllThereInTheManual In the Art Of The Film book]], it's revealed the smoke is mixed with lead particles, so not even Superman's XRayVision can see through it.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheFlash2014'' episode [[Recap/TheFlash2014S3E7KillerFrost "Killer Frost"]] has a variation, as [[AnIcePerson Killer Frost]] creates thick mist with her breath and escapes from the cops under the cover of it.

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.

* Has been used in armored warfare since the SecondWorldWar; tanks fitted with smoke grenade launchers can create a smoke screen that allows them to withdraw from the enemy or provide cover for other units. In modern tank combat, smoke screens are often used to foil enemy targeting systems using smoke that's designed to block [[InfraredXrayCamera thermal imaging]].

** In "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E25ToWhereAndBackAgainPart1 To Where and Back Again Part 1]], Trixie uses a smoke bomb to help her and Starlight Glimmer escape from Starlight's old village. This time, it works, as the smoke lingers longer and makes the ponies cough and clutch their eyes, so the two are far away by the time they recover.
