* [[SuperSoldiers SPARTAN-IIs]] are [[GameplayAndStorySegregation said to be this]] in the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' universe, and some Elites are as well.
** SPARTAN-[=IIIs=] are part this. Instead of the super-expensive MJOLNIR PoweredArmor, they are handed out the much cheaper (and unshielded) Semi-Powered Infiltration armor that gives them some stealth capability, although that becomes useless if the Covenant uses active sensors.

well, the latter largely using active camouflage to aid them in such.

* ''TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem'' has the Mekhet, who have [[PsychicPowers Auspex]] in addition to Obfuscate, meaning they can get in anywhere and dig up anything. The Nosfertau still have Obfuscate, but now it's more about being the monster lurking in the darkness.

* Garrett, from ''VideoGame/{{Thief}}''. The Keepers who trained him specialize in stealth as well. Indeed, the first game shows him being recruited because he actually managed to spot (and attempt to pickpocket) his soon-to-be mentor in a crowd.

* In the [[Literature/JackRyan Ryanverse]], former Navy SEAL and CIA agent John Clark is one, having the codename "Snake", the one whose footsteps the enemy never hears. He demonstrates this by, during a training exercise, sneaking up to the observation post and "killing" the Marine general in charge and several CIA observers...and then waiting around for them to complain that he never showed up before revealing himself to them. He served as a mentor and inspiration to two other members of this list, Chavez from ''Film/ClearAndPresentDanger'' and Sam Fisher from ''VideoGame/SplinterCell''.

* In the StarTrekNovelVerse, Garak. His identity in the Obsidian Order was "Agent Regnar" (a Regnar being a small animal capable of changing colour and texture so as to blend into its surroundings). Garak achieves his stealth through a meditative technique that allows him to "blend" his personal energy signatures into the background energy fields. It's hinted that all Cardassians could in theory learn the technique - if they were paying attention and weren't conditioned into ignoring the deeper realities of life around them. This is an important plot point in ''Literature/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineAStitchInTime''.

* Foxes are the canine equivalent of this. While most sogs use teamwork and brute force to hunt, foxes however hide and scout their terrain and are especially effective at night. Their skills of purging prey had put many generations of farmers in a state of paranoia, but do not threat they tend to shy away from us humans.

* Bandit from ''Webcomic/TheWhiteboard'' is capable of sneaking up on just about anybody on the paintball field and good enough to even pull off the occasional StealthHiBye. Not only can he hide BehindAStick, but he manages to hide behind ''himself'' in [[http://www.the-whiteboard.com/autotwb2053.html this strip.]]



* ''{{WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra}}'': Amon and the Equalists used many forms of stealth, to back up how serious and ominous their goal is. However Amon himself looked and even sounded, underhanded and cunning to the point of making even [[HotBlooded Korra]] fear him.

* [[SubStory Submarines]] are invisible from above the waves, and can be very difficult to detect unless actively seeking them. This makes them useful in warfare both as scouts and as an unexpected weapon.
* Snipers, in order to get the jump on their targets and avoid being killed in turn. Similarly to submarines, this means snipers often are employed as scouts, being sent out to discretely gather information rather than engage the enemy directly. Give them a radio, and they can call in air strikes and artillery fire as well.
