** By the end of the sixth season, this capability seems to have become generalised, extending to whole armies and fleets.

** Also {{justified|Trope}} in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E11DarkWater "Dark Water"]], where the Doctor runs down the steps of St Paul's Cathedral, leaving Missy behind, only to find her waiting for him further down the street. Turns out she's got a [[GadgetWatch teleport bracelet]].

* In the ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' episode "[[Recap/AgentsOfSHIELDS2E1Shadows Shadows]]", Hartley's team flee a military base in a SUV at top speed, only for Carl "Crusher" Creel, who was in the base as well, is suddenly in front of them, having somehow got there on foot.



* ''Series/TheDresdenFiles'': Throughout most of the series Warden Donald Morgan, a powerful wizard, does this, usually to intimidate or berate the protagonist for some reason. When a spell traps everyone in the building and he is asked why he doesn't just teleport out, he sheepishly admits that he can't actually teleport, and just has the power to become invisible, having had to sneak in and out before dramatically pretending to teleport in by becoming visible. Which makes many of the previous scenes hilarious in hindsight when you realize the powerful warden is actually attempting to sneak away or in while trying not to bump anything or make noise and probably just took a cab to the building.



* ''Series/TheFlash'': The Flash naturally did this a few times justified both by his SuperSpeed and [[CoconutSuperpowers the TV show's budget.]]

* Littlefinger in ''Series/GameOfThrones''. Nearly ever scene of him takes place somewhere else in Westeros, which makes him seem like he's everywhere. One episode had him in the Vale, while the start of next episode had him all the way at the Wall, in the North. (Which is almost on the other side of the continent.) Since we know nothing about how long it takes him to travel, how he's travelling and how much time actually passes (though it can't be too much, since there doesn't seem to be much time passing for anyone else), fans have joked that he has a teleporter or a jetpack.
** The Sand Snakes are another dubious case. They are seen waving off Prince Trystane at the pier of Dorne, but two are later seen sneaking onto his ship while he's in King's Landing.



* ''{{JONAS}}'': The teacher in charge of detention. He even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades this]] for Joe, his GirlOfTheWeek and the other students: '' "I'm like an invisible ninja...!" ''

** "Blink": The Weeping Angels have this ability as a form of AppliedPhlebotinum, and it is the only way they can move: they can move incredibly fast, but turn to stone whenever someone looks at them. This episode also breaks the fourth wall because the same principle applies to the camera as well -- the Angels turn into stone even if only the camera is looking at them.
** From the mid-season finale of season six: [[spoiler: Rory, as the Last Centurion, is in a Cyberman ship.]] At one point, he somehow accomplishes the following:
--> '''Cyber-Leader''': Intruder level eleven. Seal levels twelve, thirteen and fourteen. Intruder level fifteen.

** Another [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]] example is in "What's My Line, Part 2." When the worm-man from the Order of Taraka is chasing Xander and Cordelia, he pulls some OffscreenTeleportation to suddenly pop up in front of them, despite the fact that he shows no other signs of having unusual movement capabilities. (He can [[TheWormThatWalks disintesgrate into worms and crawl]], but the worms do not appear to be particularly fast. Certainly he can't teleport, since Xander and Cordelia escape him shortly thereafter by ducking into the basement, closing the door, and putting duct tape across the crack at the bottom. For that matter, it's not entirely clear what makes the worm-man so dangerous in the first place...)
