** The [[TheNthDoctor Eighth Doctor]] did it at least once.



** For that matter, Nancy herself did it to the Doctor, appearing seemingly out of nowhere to tell him not to answer the phone in the TARDIS (which shouldn't have worked to begin with), and having vanished when he turned around again to question her further about the phone call.

--->"How dare you?" It was a whisper colder than the wind outside, and it seemed somehow to fill the room. Vettul was back, just behind him. The way she seemed to just appear was uncanny. ''[...]'' And she swayed from the room, thump-''thump''ing on her twisted legs.

** In "The Pilot", Bill stares out the window of the Doctor's office while telling him about the weird puddle she and Heather found, only to suddenly break off her story when she sees the Doctor ''sprinting across the yard.''

* Horatio Caine on ''Series/CSIMiami'' also does this from time to time (mostly the Stealth Hi version), complete with ClickHello when he's sneaking up on the Perp of the Week. Apparently JerryBruckheimer didn't think the sunglasses routine and super-serious monotone fulfilled the show's {{Narm}} quota.

* Florence from ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'' once does this to [[TheCaptain Sam]] when he's trying to shirk work. Being an [[UpliftedAnimal uplifted]] wolf, she gets ''really'' entertaining results.

** He's even been able to pull this off on Clark Kent (also known as ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'') a few times; e.g., During ''JLA: Midsummer's Nightmare'', where Batman asks the JLA to wait a moment while he goes on ahead to quietly disable a sentry. Superman and J'onn J'onnz both try to follow his progress, but fail. To reiterate: a guy who can hear electrons bump into each other on the other side of the planet and see DNA through a mountain, and a guy who is an [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Xavier-class]] telepath and possesses nine senses, both utterly fail to detect Batman when they know where he left from, when he left, where he's going, and when to expect him back. It has been noted in the past, however, that Batman has mentioned that he's gone out of his way to learn how to trick Superman and others (usually more by way of mindgame stealth) -- in the first issue of Grant Morrison's run, Superman doesn't hear Batman's heartbeat, his usual way of picking up on him as he approaches; Batman muses that "the device worked". Similarly, Batman has been able to block out telepathic detection on various occasions ''if he knows about it''. And on a number of occasions, other superheroes have asked Superman how Batman could disappear on him like that, and Superman only grins affectionately and says, "Batman loves his little tricks," leaving the impression that Superman has no desire to make an effort to spoil Batman's fun. The few times Superman has truly had to catch Batman, he has been able to do so... usually with Batman chastising him that he took 14 seconds longer than Batman himself expected.

* A well-known moment during the town hall-style U.S. Presidential debate of 2000: While answering an audience member's question, George W. Bush turned his head and was surprised to see that his opponent Al Gore had very suddenly appeared standing close to his face. Bush smiled, nodded at Gore, and continued talking, eliciting laughter from the crowd. Even Gore appeared to find the incident ActuallyPrettyFunny.

** Sean Cassidy, thanks to his [[MakeMeWannaShout sonic manipulation powers]], is able to nullify sound around him, making him capable of sneaking up on anyone whenever he feels like it.

** Loki gets into this occasionally, as does Harry, causing Carol to complain that someone should put bells on him. Naturally, Bruce Wayne is an up-and-coming master at this.
** On a grimmer note, the [[spoiler: Winter Soldier]] is also incredibly good at this.
