* [[spoiler:Nami]] from ''Anime/SoraOKakeruShoujo'' can breathe and move through space fine when her SuperpoweredEvilSide is around.

* That scarf Hikaru/Rick used early on in ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' /''Anime/{{Robotech}}'' must have been some kind of awesome to have let him survive out there in space. Unless... this trope.
** Possibly with a side order of ScienceMarchesOn and ArtisticLicenseScience, as the episode establishes that Hikaru ''was'' holding his breath while out in hard vacuum, which as mentioned above is '''not''' a good idea if you're exposed to it... Seriously, the greater issue was he was in an unpressurized, and not thermally insulated, flight jumpsuit. [[ComicallyMissingThePoint And how did the tuna not get freezer burn, anyway?]]

** The ability to breathe on the moon isn't even {{handwave}}d for the game ''Bright Side of the Moon'', which provides the page image.
* ''WesternAnimation/LeagueOfSuperEvil'': Skullosus tangles with a military guy over a cold ray, succeeds, and retreats to his space station. Shortly thereafter, the military guy, with no space-suit, pops up in the base. He got there by the helicopter hovering just outside the window, and Skullousus [[LampshadeHanging incredulously points out]] that should be impossible:
-->"Helicopters in space? How does that even ''work''?!"
-->"No time to quibble over ''logic''!"

* Averted in ''VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel'', where the lack thereof is a gameplay mechanic: every playable character except Claptrap requires an oxygen kit while in a vacuum or else they'll take continuous damage. Your oxygen supply constantly depletes and can be replenished by entering artificial atmospheres, standing on natural vents on Elpis's surface, or through canisters founds in containers or dropped by enemies. You can also shatter Scavs' oxygen fields by shooting at their heads, causing them to suffocate until their oxygen field is reactivated.

* WesternAnimation/DangerMouse and Penfold affect this after being shot into space in "The Bad Luck Eye Of The Little Yellow God." It is suddenly averted in "Gremlin Alert" when after DM dispatches of the anti-logic gremlin aboard his spacecraft, DM and Penfold become weightless due to lack of atmosphere and DM suddenly gropes for air.

** In "The Other Day the Earth Stood Still", the villain causes Earth to lose its gravity, and all unattached objects and people float off into space. Nobody has any trouble breathing.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/TinyPlanets'', the heroes don't seem to have trouble breathing as they zip between planets in their open-topped space craft. And in the title sequence they pass an asteroid far too small to hold an atmosphere which nevertheless has a trio of aliens living on it.

* The third season of ''SonicX''. 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. It's even Lampshaded in one episode when [[TheScrappy 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. Oddly enough, all two human characters have to wear a space suit when space walking.\\

* The toy that led to the original snarkiness was a Batman figure from the original ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' toy line. Several characters were given "space armor" to go with [[RecycledInSPACE recolored "space" versions of their older toys]]. Batman's helmet was an inexplicable half-bubble that only came up to eye level, as the [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/BatSpace.gif this image]] shows.

* ''Inverted'' in ''VideoGame/KerbalSpaceProgram''--the Kerbals wear full spacesuits everywhere, even on their Earth-like home planet. They only remove their helmets in pressurized crew containers. This is {{lampshaded}} by some of the science blurbs on Kerbin: "I don't think a spacesuit was really necessary to get here, was it?"
* 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.

* At the end of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', [[spoiler:the main character's Universe Persona allows him to levitate unaided into outer space for the final battle. Then again, he makes the trip from Earth to the core of Nyx's embodiment (the Moon) in just a minute or two from everyone's perspective, so some sort of metaphysical transportation might be involved. Whichever the reason is, it is presumably why he doesn't need a spacesuit.]]

Often a form of ArtMajorPhysics. When characters aren't just hanging out but ''talking'' in the great vacuum, you have SpaceIsNoisy. A form of TheNeedless. If ''everyone'' can do this, it's probably because SpaceIsAir.
