* In ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'', not only can Ridley breathe in space, he can ''fly directly from a space frigate to the surface of the planet it orbits without burning up while entering the planet's atmosphere!'' Oddly enough, in ''Metroid Zero Mission'' he does fly a spaceship to the surface of Zebes.

* Subverted in ''Anime/OnePunchMan'': during his battle with Boros, Saitama is kicked all the way to the surface of the Moon at near-relativistic speeds, and when he gets up, everything is silent and he clearly can't breathe, despite his nigh infinite power. He plugs his nose, and granted, this could damage an ordinary human due to the air pressure, but he's tanked far greater pressures than that without flinching so it's easily believable. We don't get to find out if a prolonged asphyxia could actually do some damage because he's back to Earth in less than a minute - ''with a simple jump''.

* In ''[[Franchise/TransformersGeneration1 Transformers]]'', it's kinda messy to sort it out. On one hand, Cybertron clearly has an atmosphere, because we see a huge fire erupt in the pilot, space-traveling humans have no trouble breathing there, and some Decepticons are able to control the weather by creating acid rains. However, only one episode, ''War Dawn'', ever shows the presence of this atmosphere visibly, indicating that either the writers weren't communicating very well with the animators (quite possible, given that the writers were American and the animation was outsourced to South Korea) or the audience was simply treated to a disproportionate number of night shots (also quite possible, given that Cybertron became a rogue planet (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rogue_planet) in the aftermath of The Ultimate Doom).

* In ''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' fanfic ''Fanfic/HellsisterTrilogy'', the Legionnaires can breathe in space thanks to their Flight Rings -and some of them like Supergirl because of their natural powers- but they still need additional devices to communicate with each other. Supergirl's ability to exist out of the boundaries of a planet comes up when she arrives in the 31st century.
-->When she had slowed enough, Supergirl simply winked out of warp-time and found herself back in orbital space. Her lungs automatically tried to breathe, found vacuum, and ceased action. Kara willed them subconsciously to retain what oxygen they contained.

* The RuleOfFun/[[RuleOfCool Cool]] physics of the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' setting ''TabletopGame/{{Spelljammer}}'' allow this: there is no oxygen in space, but whenever an object goes into space, it takes an "envelope" of air with it. So everyone can breathe in space, for a minute or handful on their own. The amount of air is proportional to the size of the object, which helps the crew of a huge ship, but not a giant, for example, since it uses proportionally as much air. After a while, the air becomes stale and eventually runs out, though far-traveling ships usually avoid it with air-creating spells or plants. Escape velocity or burning up in the atmosphere aren't problems -- if you go up high enough, you end up in space, simple as that. All of this was designed to allow SpacePirates to [[RuleOfCool stand on the decks of their wooden ships]]... [[RecycledInSpace In Space]]. Incidentally, the way gravity works is even weirder.
** And that's within the solar system containing [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin crystal spheres]]. Outside, the universe is filled with volatile, gaseous phlogiston. You still have to worry about running out of air, but if you do, breathing phlogiston places living things in suspended animation. People preserved thusly can be revived even millennia later by giving them fresh air, with only a slight chance of death from shock. Putting people in air tight coffins for trips between crystal spheres makes for the ultimate budget travel option!
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' {{space marine}}s can survive in space even ''without'' their PoweredArmor for a prolonged periods of time. They're three metres tall {{Super Soldier}}s with bullet proof chests and can survive on a healthy diet of concrete and metal, so this doesn't receive much attention. They achieve this by holding their breath for quite some time, having specific adaptations that can create a hardened layer over the skin as a sort of organic vacuum suit and the ability to voluntarily enter a sort of deep coma with a metabolic rate near zero.
