* In ''The Bad Place'' by 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.

* [[MechaMooks Promethean Knights]] in ''VideoGame/Halo4'' were able to teleport, usually if it is caught off guard or losing a battle, much to the frustration of many players. This ability was removed from the Knights in ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians'', being used by Promethean Soldiers instead, this time leaving a visible trail that allows players to track them.

All Prometheans as well as the Warden Eternal can use slipspace portals to get to locations quickly but don't use them in combat.

** There's an organization of KnightsTemplar lead by Creator/SamuelLJackson who dedicate [[OffscreenVillainDarkMatter great deals of money and effort]] to killing teleporters because they believe this trope applies. The only teleporters in the movie are robbers and murderers who can't take responsiblity for their actions.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' up until 6th edition all demonic forces had to arrive at the battlefield via teleportation. Which was not exactly good for them. It is also true for Space Marine Terminators and Chaos Obliterators and Horrors from the Dawn of War RTS. Both factions were shown to perform genocide on the planets scale, so they both probably count.

* There are quite a few ways to move around quickly in ''{{Exalted}},'' but combat-speed teleportation is far less common- two significant examples being defensive Charms from Hungry Ghost Style and the Ebon Dragon's Yozi Charms. The former is far from limited to people from the creeoy side of the tracks, but it's strongly associated with the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Abyssals]] and generally ''really bloody creepy.'' The latter, however, is available (almost) only to Infernals, makes you disappear in a puff of black smoke, and is an ability belonging to the cosmic embodiment of dicking everyone else over to put yourself on top.

-->-- '''Narration''', ''Film/TheNeverendingStoryIITheNextChapter''

{{Teleport|ersAndTransporters}}ation is an awesome power to have. Even with [[TeleporterAccident the risks involved]], it's hands down ''the'' best way to travel in fiction and in fact, it tends to be a case of [[StoryBreakerPower winning]] the SuperpowerLottery. A hero with this ability could simply whisk up to a MacGuffin, dump TheDragon in jail, and spray [[HolyBurnsEvil holy water]] on the BigBad before he even [[OrcusOnHisThrone shuffles off his throne]].
