Characters using a cloak, or a Badass Cape, for teleportation. This could be rooted in the fact that cloaks are often used to hide the user in the dark, so a someone who goes into a dark alley while wearing a black cloak appears to dissappear. See also Cape Wings and Invisibility Cloak.
Examples:Anime and Manga
- Kaede from Mahou Sensei Negima! has an artifact that kind of does this... it leads to a beach house.
- A villain from YuYu Hakusho has the "Cape of No Return". He throws it over his opponent and it teleports him to a random location anywhere in the universe. Although he has no control over where the cape takes them (Kuwabara was taken a few miles away), the cape usually lives up to its name by sending the victim to Hell, outer space, or some other hazardous location.
- Cloak, of the Marvel Comics team of Cloak & Dagger.
- Minor Marvel Universe character Devil-Slayer has a cloak that allows him to teleport.
- The Witching Cloak in Fables.
- Envelope Girl from Enigma, though she usually uses it to transport unwitting strangers to other places at random.
- In the final Incarnations of Immortality novel Under A Velvet Cloak, the protagonist receives a velvet cloak and performs magic, including a kind of teleportation with it. Later, she learns she doesn't need the cloak.
