** ''VideoGame/SystemShock'' also had certain unlucky members of the crew, which were mutated by SHODAN into some sort of a completely transparent flying ray. Besides being agile and difficult to spot, these also spat acid.

* ''{{VideoGame/Borderlands}}'' had the Rakk, which were hard to hit in the air due to their attack patterns, but could be comfortably killed with shotguns once they dived down to attack you. ''Borderlands 2'' also added the Hyperion Surveoyr drones, whose main purpose was to repair the Loaders on the ground and occasionally hit back at you with weak electrical attacks.

RPG games will tend to have these guys as {{Fragile Speedster}}s. They'll usually have a high speed and evade rate, making them a [[GoddamnedBats pain in the ass to hit]]. Thankfully, they probably won't have high HitPoints, and will go down quickly if you ''do'' hit them. In the case where they do have high HitPoints ''and'' a high evade rate (and maybe some very damaging attacks), you're fighting a DemonicSpider.

* ''VideoGame/MiniRobotWars'' has the [[TheGoomba Scout Helicopter]], [[FragileSpeedster Jetpacker]], [[CoolAirship Napalm Airship]], [[CoolPlane Hyper Jet]], [[InvisibleMonsters Ghost]] and [[GrimReaper Reaper]]. The good news is that they do not have much health compared to land-based mooks. ** During the NewGamePlus, many of the land-based enemy units get a helicopter attachment that allows them to travel in the air at a fast speed. * The Balloon Zombie in ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies''. If you didnít build the AntiAir cactus plant in time, his presence was tantamount to a GameOver.

** The sequel introduces several- the Seagull Zombie, the Parrot Zombie, and the Jetpack and Disco Jetpack zombies. Unlike the Balloon zombie, regular plants could thankfully hit them. The Dodo Rider is an interesting case- it starts out as a grounded mook, but when it encounters ice floes or troublesome plants it flies over them until it passes the obstacle.

* Many enemies in ShootEmUps are these. Thankfully, your PlayerCharacter can fly too, so it's not really much of a threat unless they have [[MadeOfIron lots of health]] and [[BulletHell spam bullets]].
