* In ''WesternAnimation/ReadyJetGo'', Sean and Sydney, two human kids, can breathe in space, even without spacesuits with oxygen tanks.



* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' followed JLU's lead by showing that Superman and [[Comicbook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]] needed oxygen masks to breathe in space. [[Franchise/GreenLantern Hal Jordan, John Stewart, and Guy Gardner]] didn't need masks, but were shown protected by the aura their [[GreenLanternRing power rings]] generated.

* In ''Manga/UQHolder'', we see several characters get put in vacuum and not die from it, including former protagonist [[Manga/MahouSenseiNegima Negi Springfield]]. Of course, all the characters in question are explicitly ''immortal'', so being unable to breathe isn't exactly a showstopper for them.

** A flashback shows a battle in the Asteroid Belt against Cosmo Entelechea, and while most of the ordinary people are wearing spacesuits, the high-level (not immortal) mages are not, suggesting there is some kind of magic that can be applied to breathe in space.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' has been outside of the atmosphere on a few occasions, and has almost never had any problems breathing[[note]]aside from in the episode "Bubbled", where he needs to stay inside of a magic bubble full of air, and holds his breath without it[[/note]]. It's not because he's half-[[TheNeedless Gem]] either, since he can still drown underwater.

It's not because he's half-[[TheNeedless Gem]] either, since nature, Steven can handle low-oxygen environments just fine, being able to hold conversations on the edge of Earth's atmosphere and inside special structures on the Moon. That said, thanks to his human half, he ''will'' eventually suffer if kept in that environment for a prolonged period of time, and he can still drown underwater.

** Played 100% straight in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey'', where Mario can explore the Moon Kingdom without needing a space suit (or any specific clothes at at all for that matter). Similarly, Bowser, Peach, the Broodals, various enemies and every other sentient species from throughout the game can breathe in space too. The only exception seems to be the dog, which wears a fish bowl helmet for some reason or another.

* ComicBook/{{Starfire}} in the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' animated series is explicitly stated to be able to survive the conditions of space. In the comics back in the 80s, it was explained that her species breathes nitrogen, which at the time was believed to be highly prevalent in space. It was recently retconned to hydrogen which is present in space, but considering how thinly it is spread... And the fact that hydrogen is a fuel, not an oxidizer. Nitrogen at least is a weak oxidizing agent, but hydrogen is a reducing agent, meaning that a hydrogen metabolism would use hydrogen in place of FOOD, not oxygen.

* Peter F. Hamilton's "Fallen Dragon" has some people encounter immense creatures engineered to serve as a kind of galactic library. They orbit red giant stars and live off the radiation and the matter in the solar wind.

** The third season. All the furries and alien beings can breathe, speak, and generally not die while strolling or freefalling in space without wearing anything other than their fur or clothes, but human characters (Chris and Eggman) have to wear space suits when space walking. It's even lampshaded in one episode when Chris tells Tails, who is currently trimming the trees planted on the Blue Typhoon's runway, that trees don't thrive well in the vacuum of space.
