** The Sneak skill is upgraded in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', allowing you to move undetected, even while running and wearing heavy armor. A high level perk means you can vanish into thin air by crouching. And all of that is without using illusion magic that can make you truly invisible and silent.

** Throughout the series, the legendary [[RingOfPower Ring of Khajiiti]], a Daedric artifact associated with the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Princes]] [[ManipulativeBastard Mephala]] and [[FallenAngel Meridia]], is basically an instant Stealth Expert upgrade artifact. It grants the wearer [[SuperSpeed enhanced movement speed]], silent movement, and outright {{invisibility}}. The Ring was said to have been [[DidYouJustScamCthulhu stolen off the arm of Mephala]] by the legendary [[CatFolk Khajiiti]] ImpossibleThief, Rajhin.
** Stealth has been present in the series since ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsArena Arena]]'', and first became a skill in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]''. It is possible to make an effective "Stealth Expert" character, but the propensity for the games to require [[ButThouMust at least some combat]] to advance tends to make it border on UselessUsefulStealth. Additionally, the inherent [[RandomNumberGod randomness]] when it comes to NPC detection can make it very frustrating. Each game did thankfully make some improvements over the previous installments.

''Skyrim'' also notably upgrades stealth ''[[BackStab combat]]'', allowing for [[CriticalHitClass massive critical hit multipliers]] which have led to the "[[MemeticMutation Stealth Archer]]" build [[ComplacentGamingSyndrome becoming extremely popular]].

** In [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformersTheMovie the 1986's animated movie]], Laserbeak (another one of Soundwave's cassettes) played this role. He entered, filmed and left Autobots' Moonbase 1 totally undetected. The information he filmed allowed the Decepticons to catch the Autobots off guard and put in motion most of the events of the movie.

* While ''Character/LupinIII'' often gets into buildings via disguise, he is also an accomplished second story-man. He can sneak in in a black SpyCatsuit, or cause enough distractions that his bright yellow tie and bright red jacket aren't noticed.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** In-Universe, the [[UnevenHybrid Bretons]] are considered among the greatest masters of stealth, seamlessly blending their propensity for Illusion magic with their race's talents in [[CloakAndDagger espionage]] to make for fantastic Nightblades (a "Magic Rogue" play on the MagicKnight trope). Brings with it elements of GameplayAndStorySegregation, however, as the Bretons are outclassed in terms of pure stealth ability in-game by the likes of the [[CatFolk Khajiit]], [[OurElvesAreBetter Bosmer (Wood Elves,), and Dunmer (Dark Elves)]] throughout the series.

Someone who is ''very'' good at remaining hidden. Security cameras? No problem. Camouflage? Got it covered. Usually they will have some sort of tranquilizers or equipment to jam electronics. In a wartime setting you will often find one of these. These people have stealth down to an art form, normally outclassing anyone in real life. It is also wise to assume that [[ColdSniper snipers]] qualify here as well.
