* This is done in the ''WesternAnimation/OutOfTheInkwell'' cartoon "A Trip to Mars", where both [[FleischerStudios Max Fleischer]] and Koko fly off to the moon, with no oxygen masks.

* The ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' series featured many levels or scenes that take place in space, most of them with the little pink hero traveling on the Warp Star. In ''VideoGame/KirbyMassAttack'', Daroach even lampshades it when talking about a level that takes place on an asteroid: "How can you even ''breathe'' in space?" The oddest thing may not even be him surviving, since he's an alien but the fact Kirby is still able to vacuum up everything in sight when there is no air. ''Mass Attack'' is also where Kirby is too weak to survive underwater anymore but space seems to take less effort.

* It varies in the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' games; most stages set in space don't have a problem with breathing, but there are some exceptions, especially any stage where only Super forms are permitted. It may be possible that the other space station-based stages have artificial atmosphere.
** In ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2'', Sonic is only exposed to vacuum briefly when either reaching the Death Egg while grabbing onto Robotnik's rocket ship, or leaving the space station as it explodes and falling towards the planet. This naturally shifts the focus for suspension of disbelief from not needing air into [[FrictionlessReentry surviving re-entry]].
** In ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles'', Death Egg Zone Act 2 looks like it takes place outside the eponymous space station, however, the enclosed architecture suggests it's sealed anyway and the background is a huge window. Alternatively, the Death Egg is [[HandWave large and sophisticated enough to have an artificial atmosphere of its own]], but [[RuleOfCool fighting a giant robot on the outskirts of a orbital space station]] is apparently enough of a explanation.
** This game also has a relatively lengthy TrueFinalBoss fight set outside the Death Egg in high orbit, however, it requires Sonic to be in [[SuperMode Super or Hyper mode]] which is invulnerable anyway.
** Super Sonic can still [[SuperDrowningSkills DROWN]] when he's underwater for too long without breathing in an air bubble. (Although this feature is not present in ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog4'') So he has to breathe when he's underwater, but not when he's in space. Hyper Sonic can't drown, though.
** And in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'', even though characters can get sucked out of the space station through broken windows, none of them have any trouble breathing in the vacuum when they venture outside.
** Meanwhile, ''Anime/SonicX'' ignores this and has Sonic and (non-human) friends in space with no troubles breathing at all.

* It varies in the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' games; most stages set in space don't have a problem with breathing, but there are some exceptions, especially any stage where only Super forms are permitted. Whether the need for SuperMode is due to problems breathing or need for the power of hovering/flight generally granted by such forms can be somewhat unclear.

* Subverted in ''[[Webcomic/Vanguard]]'', Spitfire attempts to fly to Pendragon's rescue but, not realising how strong his powers have become, ends up in outer space where he almost asphyxiates before blasting himself back to Earth.

* This has made into official Batman media as of ''[[VideoGame/LegoAdaptationGame LEGO Batman 3]]''. Specifically, Robin jokingly asks Batman why he needs a spacesuit, having always thought, well, you know. This lead to the creation of [[http://www.shortpacked.com/index.php?id=2164 this]] ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}'' comic.

* ''ComicBook/{{Shakara}}'': Downplayed. The Shakara were so resilient that they could withstand the vacuum of space for long stretches of time (whereas most other species will promptly [[ExplosiveDecompression explode]]), but apparently not indefinitely.

** Ordo Xenos inqusitor Amberley Veil mentioned that Genestealers can keep operating in vacuum for surprisingly large amounts of time. Vacuum does kill Genestealers eventually, but quite a lot of people were ambushed in void by them.

* ''Series/{{Supergirl 2015}}'': Subverted, which is rare for DC. Normally Kryptonians can survive quite fine unprotected in space due to their powers. Sometimes they're even stronger, with direct exposure to the sun. Here, while a Kryptonian can ''survive'' in space, they can't breathe, and their flight doesn't work properly either.
