* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'': Nina is extremely good at stealth and recon, making her one of the army's premiere scouts. When asked by Caeldori to just get the location of the enemy and their numbers for a mission, she came back with very detailed notes about their weaknesses, what patrol routes they take, and the locations of their weapons.

* Kabuto Kirisaki fills this role for the drifters in ''Manga/Psyren'' being a usually unwilling participant in the battles initially only skilled at running and hiding, but his keen eyes and being amongst the first to link the similarities between the geography of Psyen [[spoiler: and the modern day world, which leads to one of the most important discoveries of the series]]. Later, after awakening his PSI, [[spider-sense Menace]], he fits this even more, using his power to help the drifters avoid attacks and the like, and prefers to avoid a straight fight if able.

In a fight, the sneaky guy will probably try to stay inconspicuous, looking for a weak spot to exploit or a way to confuse the enemy. Ranged weapons are common, as are daggers and short swords. Very likely to be a CombatPragmatist.

CombatPragmatist. Expect this character to be the one chosen for scouting and infiltration missions.

* Zuko from "Western/AvatarTheLastAirbender". Displayed in "The Blue Spirit" in Book One: Water. He combines this with elements of the PointMan/Big Guy by taking out soldiers and remaining in the shadows, until he rescues Aang. Once detected, he still was able to get Aang out alive, before being shot by an arrow. Later, displayed when he snuck onto the Zhao's warship after surviving an assassination attempt. Followed by sneaking into the Water Tribe Kingdom and entering the Oasis, without being seen. That's just season one folks.
