It's worth noting that not all airships are Cool Airships. For instance, the Goodyear Blimp is definitely ''not'' a Cool Airship. Like the CoolCar and the CoolPlane, the Cool Airship is exceptionally cool. Furthermore, it has to be owned by a major character, or otherwise play a prominent role, such as acting as the setting for a major scene. For massive cool points, it should be appointed like ''Titanic'', with a casino, bar, and a sultry chanteuse on board for the entertainment of the passengers. Military or [[SkyPirates pirate]] vessels are known to carry an [[AirborneAircraftCarrier internal aircraft hangar]] and [[MoreDakka lots o' guns.]] Either way, any Cool Airship worth its salt usually boasts an UnnecessarilyLargeInterior[[note]]which is actually justified, in RealLife large airships need the vast hull space for weight distribution[[/note]]. It goes without saying that they are usually commanded by a badass of some sort.

* The Animated {{Music/Kiss}} in WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndKissRockAndRollMystery have one shaped like a guitar that can also travel through dimensions.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' airships are often seen in the possession of the very wealthy. One episode showed an airship used for a luxury cruise that operated very much the same way as modern luxury cruise ships of today.

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' has the ''Enterprise'', Cid Garlond's personal airship which he uses to help the heroes travel to dangerous or far-off locations. Some in-game mounts also count, including manacutters and the ''Falcon''.
** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'', the Nifelheim Empire has a battalion of Cool Airships. [[spoiler:After beating the game, you can also upgrade your car, the Regalia, into a Cool ''[[FlyingCar Aircar]]''.]]

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII'' has four. The simple nameless airship owned by Cid, which is destroyed early on. The ''[[StarTrek Enterprise]]'', which starts as a normal ship, and is later modified to be able to switch between sailing and flying, and which is later shot down over Saronia. The ''Nautilus'', which is eventually modified to be able to go underwater as well. And last but certainly not least, the ''[[AwesomeMcCoolname Invincible]]'', a monstrously huge airship which, while lacking speed and the ability to go underwater, contains beds for healing, shops, and a [[ItemCaddy Fat Chocobo]], and can pass over mountain ranges. The ''Invincible'' is also the first airship in the series that you can actually explore as an area. Interestingly enough, you don't lose the ''Nautilus'' once you get the ''Invincible''.

* Disney's ''WesternAnimation/TaleSpin'' is a notable example for the Cool Airship called the Iron Vulture used by the Air Pirates and Don Karnage. Functions as a battleship and flying carrier in several episodes. Often has to be infiltrated by the heroes for one reason or another.

* Not really an airship, but the ''Victoria'' from Creator/JulesVerne's first published novel, ''Literature/FiveWeeksInABalloon'', is cool because it is capable of having its altitude controlled without losing gas or ballast, and therefore of staying aloft for five weeks to explore the heart of Africa. It's kept aloft by a combination of heat and [[StuffBlowingUp hydrogen gas]]. The other characters point out how dangerous this is, but Ferguson, the inventor, is willing to take the risk. (TheOtherWiki's page on the book has an entire section about how the balloon's mechanism as described by Verne is scientifically impossible.)

* UsefulNotes/TheFrenchRevolution Comicbook/{{Batman}} in the {{Elseworld}} ''Batman: Reign of Terror'' has something similar, with [[{{Tropemobile}} a bat insignia on the balloon]].

Added DiffLines:

* The setting of ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'' takes place in a WorldInTheSky, so airships are everywhere. However, the main example is the airship the heroes use, the ''Grandcypher''. The Crew/Guild system also allows you to unlock three more airships: the ''Dravenspirit'', ''Frontier'', and ''Engella''.
