* Because she spent her childhood undergoing classified military training that simultaneously broke her psychologically and gave her amazing abilities, River Tam from ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' is gifted at stealth. Sometimes it's plot relevant and sometimes it's just used to emphasise how damaged and weird she is, or played for comedy. There's even a scene where she glues herself to the ceiling and watches her brother and a crew member having sex.

* ComicBook/{{Nightcrawler}} is a flamboyant swashbuckler at heart, but when he needs to be sneaky he's ''very'' good at it. The fact that he can cling to walls and vanish into the shadows at will certainly helps, but beyond his powers there's the fact that he is quit good at moving in complete silence.

* In ''Literature/{{Edgedancer}}'', Lift is definitely one; she first manages to sneak into Nale's house and eat his breakfast while he's in the next room over, then leave with him none the wiser, and later successfully tails a pair of his acolytes across an empty, straight-as-an-arrow corridor without them realizing that they're being followed.

** The Raven Guard and Night Lords Space Marine Legions excelled at this, with Raven Guard veterans able to ''wraith-slip'' past even very observant guards (although not Salamanders, who have incredible night vision). The Raven Guard generally use their powers for good, preferring to confuse the enemy and strike at key targets, while the Night Lords fell to Chaos and evolved into sadistic murderers who use their stealth as an aspect of general terror tactics.

* The Thief can be played as this with a strong enough Stealth stat in ''VideoGame/QuestForGlory''.
** In ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryI'' it becomes possible to outright avoid any enemy encounter thanks to it, and this makes the game a whole lot easier. At one point, you can even steal a key from a Kobold wizard, with the key hanging from the guy's neck!
** In ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryII'', especially the FanRemake, you become able to pull the same in the desert. You also avoid palace guards and eunuchs
** By ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryV'' you have such insane stealth boosts you can rob silly a bank twice even with guards patrolling if you do it right.

* The "Stealth" special rule in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', logically enough, represents a modicum of stealth training and allows the unit to make better use of cover, therefore gaining improved Cover saves against shooting. "Infiltrate", on the other hand, is a more comprehensive rule that lets the unit set up on the battlefield after the enemy's units, representing it sneaking into the perfect position to counter the enemy's strategy. It can even set up outside of it's army usual setup zone, as long as it remains 18" away from an enemy (or 12" if it's out of sight, such as behind a building).

One of the most famous examples of this kind of Ork is Boss Snikrot of Armageddon, who is said to be better than ''most Eldar'' at sneakin' about. Because sneaky Orks [[ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy distinctly lack the aiming ability for one-shot sniping techniques]] and are often physically weaker than most of their kin, they tend to prefer to ThrowDownTheBomblet.
