* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, starting with ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind Morrowind]]'', the series offers spells, potions, and enchanted items with the Water Breathing effect.

* ''{{Wizard 101}}'' has underwater breathing potions early in the game to allow access to a street that is completely underwater. However, due to the game mechanics, players can teleport to this area without adverse effects.

In fiction, characters may for whatever reason need to stay underwater for an extended period of time. In RealLife, this can be accomplished with SCUBA gear for short periods (about 1 hour) or rebreathers for much longer periods -- however, these real world devices are bulky, require a lot of training (especially rebreathers), and are priced well beyond many peoples' means.

** On Admiral Ackbar's planet Mon Calamari (seen in ''[[Literature/JediAcademyTrilogy Dark Apprentice]]''), they have flexible, jelly-like breathers you slap over your nose and mouth and it filters the water into oxygen. The Yuuzhan Vong in the ''Literature/NewJediOrder'' series have a similar creature called a gnullith that covers the nose and mouth, and extends down the windpipe to interface with the lungs directly. It's incredibly useful, even because it doesn't need recharging of any kind, and unlike their other biots, gnulliths cause no pain or discomfort.

Obviously, these concerns would bog down most fantasy or science fiction narrative. The solution? The Artificial Gill: A device that enables a character to swim underwater without worrying about the OxygenMeter, unless the device runs on air tanks. These are used to find and explore UnderwaterRuins and the UnderwaterCity.
