* Beck from ''TronUprising'' is a FragileSpeedster, especially compared to MightyGlacier Tessler or LightningBruiser Tron. But he outclasses ''both'' of them at being sneaky.

In a fight, the sneaky guy will probably try to stay inconspicuous, looking for a weak spot to exploit or a way to confuse the enemy. Ranged weapons are common, as are daggers and short swords. Very likely to be a CombatPragmatist. Expect this character to be the one chosen for scouting and infiltration missions.

* It is possible to play the Hero like this as a Thief in ''VideoGame/QuestForGlory''. In a lot of cases, there is stuff to steal, and stealth can get a lot of results without risk. In the FanRemake to ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryII'' it is even possible to play the Thief as a backstabbing assassin. Not honorable at all, but it works.

* Zuko from "WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender". Displayed in "The Blue Spirit" in Book One: Water. He combines this with elements of the PointMan/Big Guy by taking out soldiers and remaining in the shadows, until he rescues Aang. Once detected, he still was able to get Aang out alive, before being shot by an arrow. Later, displayed when he snuck onto the Zhao's warship after surviving an assassination attempt. Followed by sneaking into the Water Tribe Kingdom and entering the Oasis, without being seen. That's just season one folks.
