* ''{{Film/M}}'' might feature one of the earliest examples. Child killer Hans Beckert is being chased by a beggar when an ambulance passes between them. After it's gone, he is nowhere to be seen.

Related to the StealthHiBye, but with large noisy wheeled props. See also TrainEscape. If the vehicle itself vanishes, that's DudeWheresOurCar. A common child-themed variant is CarouselKidnapping.

* Unusual variant in the Creator/BusterKeaton film ''Film/{{Cops}}''-- to get away from a pursuing crowd of policeman, Buster does a ''one-armed grab'' on a fairly fast-moving truck and is yanked away! Strong shoulders!

* Unusual variant in ''Film/{{Blowup}}'': Done with a group of people, not a vehicle, for a surreal effect. Thomas is driving through London when he sees Jane across the Creator/BusterKeaton film ''Film/{{Cops}}''-- to get away from a pursuing crowd street in front of policeman, Buster does a ''one-armed grab'' on nightclub. As he parks the car, a fairly fast-moving truck group of people pass in front of Jane...and is yanked away! Strong shoulders!she vanishes into thin air. She's never seen again.

* Used to heart-wrenching effect in the BittersweetEnding of ''Anime/FiveCentimetersPerSecond'': [[spoiler:Takaki and Akari (or someone who looks like her; it's never made clear) walk past each other at some train tracks. He turns to look just as a train goes past; by the time the train clears, she's gone.]]

** JustifiedTrope during the car chase in Paris. A police motorcyclist is pursing Bourne's car by driving along a parallel street. A large van obscures the car for a moment, only for it to vanish. The policeman is craning his neck to see where Bourne went [[LemmingCops when he collides with another vehicle]]. The next shot reveals that Bourne had turned down a side street.
