Teleportation comes in many flavors
. Some simply disappear and reappear in a flash of light. Others prefer to use portals, whether magical or mechanical.
Those with a Badass Cape
, however, tend to favor the Meta Knight Vanishing Act
, where the character flips their cape so it wraps around them and suddenly disappear. When this occurs, the user will rarely reappear immediately, and often will not be seen until the next scene.
The Trope Namer
is Meta Knight
, who escapes in this way after being defeated.
