** Mostly averted in ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'', as Ryder and most of the squad members wear full-body armored suits for hostile atmospheres. The one exception who plays it straight is Peebee, who only wears a respirator mask that doesn't even cover her eyes and wears nothing more protective than her [[BareYourMidriff navel-baring jacket]].

* In the ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' episode "[[Recap/DuckTalesS1E4WhereNoDuckHasGoneBefore Where No Duck Has Gone Before]]", Launchpad accidentally dumps himself into outer space when he opens the wrong door. Not only can he breathe, but he can also talk.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'', one level has the characters jumping through airlocks into the vacuum of space for very short periods of time. Possibly justified since they state that a human can survive in space for 30 seconds or so as long as they keep their eyes and mouth shut.

* 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*.

* The final battle of ''Anime/KillLaKill'' takes place in space. Neither of the fighter is technically human, as they are rather hybrids of human and Life Fiber, the resident alien menace, so them easily surviving the vacuum of space could be justified. Being able to talk, less so; but this being a Trigger show that basically runs on RuleOfCool it's probably better not to think too hard about it.

** Averted in "The Time of Angels," when River Song sends The Doctor coordinates to park the TARDIS outside the ''Byzantium,'' she tells him she'll also need an air corridor. She then blows out a hatch and uses the decompression to "fly" over to The Doctor.

** And at one point he didn't even need to breath altogether: during Creator/JephLoeb's run on Superman during the time when Brainiac 13 upgraded Metropolis. Superman was suffering from Kryptonite Poisoning induced by a nanobot, and Comicbook/{{Steel}}, Comicbook/{{Superboy}}, and Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} [[FantasticVoyagePlot were shrunk down to go into Superman and cure him.]] While there, Superboy and Steel got blown into Big Blue's stomach, which was "the intestinal equivalent of a nuclear reactor! This is the man's power source... his body's splitting atoms to convert them into [[PureEnergy pure energy"!]] The person talking was The Prankster in Steel's hijacked armor, so his scientific knowledge of the situation may not be accurate, and this was a few origin re-tellings ago....
** In ''Comicbook/WarWorld'' both Kryptonian cousins sail the galaxy at their heart's content. Neither Clark nor Linda need to breathe due to her Kryptonian physiology. They can talk each other, though, thanks to their Super Ventriloquism (whatever it is). Martian Manhunter does not need to breath either, and Comicbook/TheSpectre is... well, a spirit.

* Apollo of ''ComicBook/TheAuthority'' works this way. At one point he is asks how he operates in space, and responds that he just doesn't breathe. "Just like that?" "Well, I'd look pretty stupid if I tried to breathe in space, wouldn't I?" [[ItRunsOnNonsensoleum That's all the (non-)explanation we get]].

* In ''VideoGame/HalfLife1'' The aliens that live on Xen before being teleported to Earth all appear to be able to breath as well. Either they can all Breathe in Space, or Xen has some form of atmosphere similar to Earth.

* ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' plays this one straight. ''Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy''[='=]s Mike was able to survive, albeit unconsciously, in the vacuum of space, while ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace''[='=]s Carlos could take an unmorphed little girl for a ride on his Galaxy Glider. Most JustForFun/{{egregious}}ly, the team-up episode "Forever Red" features the villains ''riding horses on the moon.''

Though it should be noted with this and all following moon-related examples that it was established in-story for the franchise that there is a breathable atmosphere on Earth's moon in the Power Rangers Universe. HOW there is a breathable atmosphere however makes the series still subject to this trope.
