* Even more than in the comics,''Series/{{Daredevil 2015}}'' embodies this trope in the Netflix series. His first media tag, "The Devil of Hell's Kitchen," is inspired by the mystery, violence, and outright fear surrounding his exploits.

* Blackwolf in ''Literature/SoonIWillBeInvincible'' is a combination of Wolverine and Batman.

* Blackwolf in ''Literature/SoonIWillBeInvincible'' is a combination of Wolverine and Batman. Boasts that he can beat pretty much any super-powered hero or villain, and many agree that he can. The novel claims that he's on the autism spectrum, which is why he's so meticulous, but he seems to be far too socially adjusted for that.

* Ironically, ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' -who is one of the classic examples of The Cape and cousin of THE Cape- used to be like this back in the Silver Age. Before Superman revealed her existence to the world she secretly patrolled the small town of Midvale at night, trying not to get caught while she stopped crimes and saved people. Midvale locals rumored that they were protected by a "guardian angel".

* ''ComicBook/AstroCity's'' most famous example is unarguably The Confessor, an {{Expy}} for Batman who easily surpasses him in all omajor skills -- he fights off crowds of thugs without effort, avoids gunfire at point-blank range, intimidates everyone with his piercing gaze, is never seen in daylight hours, and has such mastery of the StealthHiBye that he's never been caught on film or camera. [[spoiler:That's because he's a vampire.]]
