* Elegantly averted in ''WesternAnimation/TitanAE'', in which Korso and Cale make a magnificently scientifically-accurate "jump" from their damaged and drifting shuttle to the airlock of another ship. They even remember to exhale first, and are treated afterwards for frozen skin and decompression. In the novelization, they even shut their eyes and spray their faces with foam from the fire extinguisher before they make the jump, to protect the delicate tissue there. [[ShownTheirWork Hot .]]

** Frieza's species may have evolved with the ability to use [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anaerobic_respiration anaerobic respiration]]. Resisting vacuum pressures and radiation is a result of being strong enough to resist them from training or exposure to it, either that or energy manipulation to create an environment for resistance.

* The main four from ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' can do this. They spend a lot of time in space in the Season 3 premiere.

Added DiffLines:

* When the characters in ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTales'' are in space, they wear space outfits. Yet they can breate without it (eg. Jimmy and Jerry Gourd in their debut story, Veggies in Space). This also counts for the [[WesternAnimation/VeggieTalesInTheHouse Netflix series]].

* Not only can ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' breathe in space, she can even survive re-entry [[spoiler:or rather, [[AllYourPowersCombined she and the rest of the team together]] can power the Silver Imperium Crystal enough to generate a heat and braking shield that just barely manages the job]]. Then again, she is a MagicalGirl.
** In the manga they can just jump into orbit, breathe in space, and survive re-entry with ease.

* Franchise/{{Batman}} does this in one of the early issues of ''Comicbook/JusticeLeagueInternational'' [[spoiler:(granted, it was due to the New Genesis-created training satellite's programming directive to not actually harm its opponents, thus causing it to create an artificial atmosphere when Bats's space helmet gets broken, but all the same)]].
** One issue of ''Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica'' showed Batman training himself, not to be able to breathe in space, but to at least survive the vacuum of space for a couple of seconds. The Comicbook/MartianManhunter helps while wondering if he should.

* The ''Comicbook/FantasticFour'' just use helmets-- their [[MySuitIsAlsoSuper uniforms]] double as spacesuits (except the Thing, his skin is tougher than any spacesuit) -- the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_Activity_Suit Space Activity Suit]] was still several years away from invention when the FF started this practice.

** According to ''Anime/MazingerZ'', the Boss Borot has an open-air cockpit. But when Mazinger Z appears in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'', the Boss Borot can be deployed in space just fine without apparent modifications (it will perform like due to having a terrible rating for space combat, but in both ''Anime/MazingerZ'' and ''Super Robot Wars'' the Boss Borot is a JokeCharacter anyways). This actually has a Justification: any mech (not just Borot) that isn't airtight simply has the pilot wear a spacesuit.

* 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.

** 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 Steel, Superboy, and 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.
