* This trope is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom''. When Danny [[SplitPersonality split in two]], his superhero side donned a cape to emphasize his 100% dedication to world-saving. The cape spends the better portion of the episode bellowing in DramaticWind.
