* In ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'', various witches and other supernatural beings can teleport (dissolving into a could of gold butterflies and reforming somewhere else), but the demon [[ArsGoetia Gaap]] specifically has the power to teleport herself and others, which she mostly uses to set up impossible closed-room mysteries.

Added DiffLines:

* Of ''course'' the only character with a Teleporting quirk in ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' is a member of the League of Villains. While there' ''is'' more to him, the guy's power is primarily used to transport villains onto the scene unannounced, and then withdraw them before they can be caught.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/SupermanVsTheElite'', the titular villain team has enslaved an alien creature and force her to teleport them wherever they want. They use this constantly to troll people, go wherever they want, and out-maneuver Superman.

* Pops up in ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda''. It's one of the main abilities of the Wizzrobes [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI whenever]] [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast they]] [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker appear]]. While [[BigBad Ganon]] himself hardly ever uses it (preferring to engage Link in direct swordplay instead), this is a favorite technique of [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Zant]] and [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Ghirahim]]; battles against those two have to be planned based on the assumption that they'll occasionally teleport behind Link and try to strike at him. [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkBetweenWorlds Yuga]] also does this in the FinalBattle, in addition to eventually using his wall-merging technique. The functionality of any teleporting Link gets, meanwhile, is limited to the WarpWhistle and the EscapeRope.
** Ghirahim's teleport is interesting. He vanishes in a flurry of orange, black, and white diamond shapes.

* Averted in the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series. Like most abilities in the wizarding world, it can be learned if someone is skilled enough to use it. In fact, learning how to teleport is akin to getting a driver's license in the real world. Not that villains would have any use for that, since the Hogwarts grounds prevent anyone from apparating in and out.

** Played semi-straight in terms of flight. While broomsticks and flying horses and the like are readily available, only two warlocks have been able to fly without support and both are on the side of evil. One is Voldemort, the other is [[spoiler: Snape, who while not evil spends a lot of time seemingly allied with the villains and uses the ability to flee the heroes.]]

** Alucard gets this attack in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight''. It's entirely useless as the teleportation range is small, limited, can't go through walls, and the fireballs do very little damage, but it's [[RuleOfCool just so damned cool]] to get to use it.

It's entirely useless Its usefulness is brought into question as the teleportation range is small, limited, can't go through walls, and the fireballs do very little damage, but it's [[RuleOfCool just so damned cool]] to get to use it.it. Alternatively, it can be used to quickly bypass annoying enemies with its MercyInvincibility by simply pressing Down to cancel the fireball attack at the end and quickly recovering from the move.

* In ''The Bad Place'' by Creator/DeanKoontz, Frank Pollard and his insane brother Candy (the main villain) have this ability. With Candy its more reliable and controlled, but Frank can't control where he goes and how he reassembles himself.

* Myrddraal in the ''Literature/WheelOfTime'' books can teleport between shadows. It's uncertain what other limitations are at play, although it seems [[FanWank logical]] that there must be a maximum effective range since only those nations closest to where Myrddraal are known to live take the precaution of extra light sources, and the lack of TeleportSpam during fight scenes that take place in shadowy areas implies some kind of cooldown timer or other limitation on how often it can be used. Even the evil super-scientist who created them doesn't seem too sure how it works, though that applies to everything about Myrddraal.

** Another amusing example with FridgeLogic is Tuxedo Mask who has made a FaceHeelTurn when under MindControl by Queen Beryl. A splendid example of FridgeLogic since while he is evil he has the teleportation power, but not anymore after.
