* One of the examples in the corebook of indie RPG ''DontRestYourHead'' described a character exploiting this tactic to win a gunfight. He ended up suffering temporary insanity due to using the power.

** ''WerewolfTheForsaken'' limits crossing the Gauntlet to whenever the characters are near a [[PlaceOfPower locus]]. However, certain werewolves (like Ithaeurs) have access to Gifts that allow them to jump across at will -- and bring the rest of their pack along with them.

** ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'':\\\ Deadpool.\\\ As well as John Wraith. Deadpool did [[PowersAsPrograms borrow it from him]], after all. [[spoiler:Which didn't help much when Victor figured out that he teleported in a predictable pattern, and got him to teleport into roughly the same area as Victor's claws, with predictable results.]] ** Azazel's power in ''Film/XMenFirstClass''.

* Used to great effect by Azazel in ''Film/XMenFirstClass''. [[spoiler:He's particularly fond of teleporting with someone several hundred feet into the air and then letting go... It also doesn't hurt that it runs in the family since Azazel is Nightcrawler's biological father.]]

* In ''StarControl 2'', the Arilou Lalee'lay Skiff can randomly teleport around the battle space. Unfortunately, it's random, so there's a chance of it putting you right in the enemies' sights. [[TeleFrag Or inside a planet.]]

* ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorldPiranhaIsland'': the Magipiranhas, like their Koopa counterparts, frequently teleport when they're attacking Mario. The Green Magipiranhas specialize in this as they can poof away when Mario attempts to go near them.

* In ''{{Slayers}}'', Mazoku sometimes use this technique, particularly Seigram (more so in the novels than the anime) and Kanzeil (more so in the anime than the novels). In the novels, it is noted that Seigram is a low-ranking mazoku, and would be easily destroyed by any high-level spell if any of them could actually ''hit'' him. In the anime, Kanzeil goes OneWingedAngel and starts giving out some absolutely ridiculous teleport spam, including [[CoolGate sticking out of the gates]] separate parts of his body in different locations simultaneously.

** For several early story arcs of ''ComicBook/{{Excalibur}}'', Nightcrawler was unable to use this tactic due to an injury he sustained prior to leaving the X-Men, which left him just as vulnerable to the strain of teleporting as a normal human would be. He could only handle about 1-2 teleports a day, and had to rely on his less famous powers ({{Spider-Man}}-like wallcrawling and agility)... until a fight with DoctorDoom accidentally cured him. Then it was back to teleport-spamming.

** Tabuu from ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl''. But he tends to teleport exactly four times in a row before attacking, so don't bother chasing him until then. In fact, chasing him is a relatively bad idea, as he'll sometimes use teleports that leave explosions behind.

* Houdini Splicers from the ''Franchise/{{Bioshock}}'' games use this as a battle tactic. Luckily, you can stop them from teleporting by stunning them, as well as setting them on fire, which does not go out when they teleport. In the sequel, the unstable Teleport plasmid teleports all over the place whenever you try to touch it, and finally teleports ''you'' all over the place for a while.
