* This occurring in real life is why motorists should keep their eyes on the road. A road safety video depicted this by having a camera in a car driving down a suburban street turn away for three seconds. When it turns back, a ‘’camel’’ is walking halfway across the street and right in the car’s path. The lesson being that conditions on the road can change much faster than you’d think.

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has Doctor Strange, who can teleport. He's a wizard, and an extremely powerful one, so nothing strange there - save for his habit of appearing in deeply unexpected places, at deeply unexpected times. However, he can also teleport into, out of, and around Hogwarts, which is supposed to be impossible, and is a rule that even Loki seems to abide by. Strange? Not so much. Everyone else puts it down to 'Strange being Strange in every sense of the phrase', and Hermione has mild hysterics.

The final minigame reveals he's performing a kind of FlashStep.


* Two aliens appear in Creator/AlanMoore's ''ComicBook/{{Miracleman}}'' that only ever move between panels, much to the discomfort of Miracleman.
