Added DiffLines:

* 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.

** AvertedTrope in the episode ''TheGirlInGoldBoots'' in that Buzz's inexplicable appearance in the diner happens completely ''onscreen'' due to the mother of all editing errors.

* ''Series/ATouchOfCloth'': Spoofed when Jack Cloth is working undercover and the boss of the criminal operation calls him up to get over there and explain himself. Cloth says that he'll "be there right away", then immediately walks through the door when the shot switches locations.

** 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 disintegrate 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...)

** Discussed and parodied in the episode featuring ''Film/{{Gunslinger}}''. Tom Servo attempts to explain away the fact the movie just had a bunch of false fronts by showing how this sort of thing actually works. Crow ends up insulting Tom over it, leading the latter to ''bend time space to his will''. When Joel finally goes to a commercial, he has to calmly let Tom know to stop.

** Has a particularly hilarious example of this. In the episode "Criss Angel is a Douche Bag," the Winchester boys tie up a stage magician that they think is responsible for the recent murders. The boys discuss their next move as the camera pans around them, and when the camera comes around again, the chair that they tied the man up in is empty.
-->Dean: We ''really'' should have seen that one coming.
** Even funnier, after Sam and Dean run off to go looking for him, the magician pops out of the closet. When Sam and Dean get downstairs and the cops pull in, the magician comes downstairs. Cue the ''very'' confused looks from poor Sam and Dean.

** Castiel (like other angelic creatures) is a MASTER of Off Screen Teleportation. If Cas is in the episode, it'll probably happen. Multiple times.

*** Note, however, that it's often only "offscreen" for the audience; there are multiple examples of human characters looking straight at angels while they flutter away. The camera watches the human, but the human is watching the angel.
