* ''CrimsonSkies'' is essentially a world made up of flying airships, air commerce and air pirates in the 1940s. Used for cargo, transportation and carriers for smaller aircraft, there's no shortage of cool airships flying around. The novels and videogames also reflect this.

* Meta Knight's Iconic Face Ship, the ''Halberd'', features bat-wings and its own WaveMotionGun, and a reactor powered by Wheelies. The battleship appears in what is arguably the most intense mode of the original ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar''. [[Videogame/SuperSmashBros But what kind of weirdo puts his face on the bow of a ship, anyway?]]

** The Jones' travel on LZ-138 ("Luftschiffbau Zeppelin 138"). It was owned (in fiction) by Deutsche Zeppelin-Reederei, the same company that owned and flew the Hindenburg, but the Jones' weren't on the actual Hindenburg. Actual registration numbers only went to LZ-130.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' has the ''[[Myth/KingArthur Prydwen]]'', a [[ILoveNuclearPower nuclear-powered]] airship which serves as the mobile base of the Brotherhood of Steel, and is also a FlyingAircraftCarrier with docking space for the Brotherhood's Vertibirds. The only way to access it is by Vertibird from the Brotherhood's airport base or called in by flare from anywhere in the Commonwealth.

* In ''Literature/TerminalWorld'', Swarm is a mobile city composed of dozens of massive zeppelins. The airships are built with a massive array of redundant archaic technology as the [[EnforcedTechnologyLevels laws of reality can shift without warning and render more advanced equipment useless]]. Citizens traverse the city via small dirigible "taxis" or flexible rope bridges. Swarm scouts out its travel path with small, autocannon-toting airships.

* ''The First Lady'' of VideoGame/BioshockInfinite is an example. It doesn't have much coolness on the performance side of things, except for being able to fly itself to any point on the planet, but it sure looks cool with its gold finish and the portrait of lady Comstock on the side.
** On the other hand, there is also Comstock's ship itself, the Hand of The Prophet, a gigantic battleship. In fact most ships in the game could count.

** In ''Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL'', Yuma and Anna team up against Tobio and Umimi in one two-part episode, two duelists who use monsters that are Cool Airships; Tobio's monster is Supercolossal Airship Giant Hindenburg, while Umimi's is Supercolossal Unsinkable Superliner Elegant Titanic (which, despite being named after a boat, is also an airship). They later use both monsters to Xyz Summon the even ''cooler'' Skypalace Gangaridai, and then use it to summon the ''coolest'' airship of all, [=CXyz=] Skypalace Babylon. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, the last one is an evil card given to them by the Barians, making them their [[UnwittingPawn Unwitting Pawns]]; eventually despite all the coolness, they lose.]]

* In ''Anime/YuGiOhTheDarkSideOfDimensions'''s prequel manga, many guilds in Kaiba Corps's VRMMORPG ride one of these to face down other guilds riding other cool airships. Kaiba gets his own personal airship that can be summed up as "rocket-powered Blue-Eyes White Dragon head".
