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 disappear. Expect the user to whip the cloak around so it blocks any view of their body, then for them to disappear when they are behind the cloak.

See also Cape Wings, Invisibility Cloak, and Cloak of Defense.

    Anime and Manga 
  • Kaede from Negima! Magister Negi Magi 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.
