* ''KaitouSaintTail'', as a [[{{kaitou}} phantom thief]], has mastered the entrance bit -- but always disappears in a flash with streamers, confetti, doves and a bunch of multicoloured balloons.

* Flint does it twice in ''Film/AssassinationGames'', albeit both times where the person he's escaping front is convinced they're still being held at gunpoint, and are babbling for their lives.

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'' has this as Jude's ability, called 'Snap Pivot'. Backstepping just as he's about to get hit by an enemy, he flashsteps behind them. It actually gets lampshaded that this is what he does, once the player has used Snap Pivot a lot.

* The Colossal Titan from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' quite literally appears out of nowhere and vanishes just as quickly, even though it's a 60m tall monster that appears with nowhere to hide. [[spoiler:Justified, with the revelation that he's a human with the ability to create his massive Titan form out of thin air. With his steam powers creating a SmokeOut and the massive destruction left in his wake, no one notices him sneaking away from the scene.]]

* Vitali from ''SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters'' does this constantly, much to the annoyance of Gig [[RunningGag who inevitably gets spooked by his appearance whenever he does it]].

* An episode of ''{{Numb3rs}}'' featured a [[TheMenInBlack mysterious government agent]] checking up on the characters. He had a bad habit of surprising people with a "stealth hi" (his exits were normal), but in a subversion he was also disarmingly cheerful and helpful. * [[spoiler:The murdered copper]] in ''AshesToAshes'' has a habit of this.

If you're ''looking'' for it you can tell where he is.]] * Frank Lemmer from ''ParkerLewisCantLose'' was quite good at the "bye" part, simply fading into thin air occasionally. At one time this failed when he tried to teleport out of an awkward situation with his current love interest and he just flickered a bit, with a strained facial expression. * Agent [=LaRoche=] in ''TheMentalist'' is good at sneaking up on people, a useful skill for him to have as an InternalAffairs investigator, since otherwise, the protagonists are likely to try to avoid him.

* On an episode of ''TheWestWing'', C.J. manages to sneak into Leo's office behind him without him noticing. After Leo recovers, he says, "You should wear a bell around your neck, you know?"

* In ''TheBigBangTheory'', Sheldon attempts to stay at Raj's apartment in order to avoid a bitter argument between Penny and Leonard. Unfortunately, when he enters, Raj was already in a severe argument regarding leaving for a wedding back in India (citing that he has something important to do for his university as his reason), as well as his parent's implication that he and Howard Wollowitz were a couple ("The closest thing we have to a daughter in law is that Jewish boy Howard"). When Raj turns and angrily asks Sheldon to back him up by telling them that they are just friends, Sheldon was already long gone (obviously because of wanting to run away from their argument).
