* True artificial gills are highly impractical because humans require far more oxygen to sustain life than typical sea creatures. In order to get enough oxygen to sustain a human, several gallons of water must be processed per minute, and a device capable of doing this would end up being massive. Carrying such a heavy device would ''increase our oxygen demands further'', compounding the problem. It's simply much more efficient to use compressed air for our underwater needs.

* In ''Dragon Fable'', you sink a ship full of water breathing potions that contaminates and enchants the ocean so that you can breathe underwater.

* 008 from ''{{Cyborg 009}}'' has this as one of his cybernetic enhancements, as well as other modifications that allow him to survive deep sea pressures, even having most of his skin replaced with metal scales as a MidseasonUpgrade after being blown up. The other cyborgs have built-in oxygen tanks that let them hold their breath longer than a normal person, but 008 is the only one who can actually breathe water.

** 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 Yuuzan 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, but you might want to find a different solution; it ''hurts like a motherfucker'' because of the Yuuzan-Vong's cultural obsession with pain.

* ''Film/{{Thunderball}}''

to:

* ''Film/{{Thunderball}}''Bond has made use of this device.
** He uses a mini-breather in ''Film/{{Thunderball}}'' when escaping the shark pool and later when fighting mooks underwater. After the movie came out, a naval engineer spoke to the producers, inquiring how they managed to make the mini-breather, since he was trying to develop one himself. He was devastated by their answer: Sean Connery was actually holding his breath.
** In ''Film/DieAnotherDay'' he uses a rebreather when scuba-diving his way into the villain's lair.
