* While not a spaceship, Raising Heart from ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' usually discharges ''some'' kind of gas after any particularly impressive attack.

* The original ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Classic}}'' pilot does this. Starbuck and Cassiopeia are seen kissing in the hangar bay, while Starbuck's other love interest catches them by surveillance camera. Cue the push of a "Steam Vent" button. ** The pilot of the [[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined re-imagined version]] had Ragnar Station. Justified, as [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot Leoben]] had just ripped a steam pipe. The rest of the station wasn't really steamy at all.

* Steamboy. This trope is present throughout pretty much the whole movie, especially so in the second half with the Steam Castle. Of course, when you're talking about a colossal structure that runs entirely on steam power, large quantities of the stuff are to be expected, right?

* ''BraveFencerMusashi'' has lots of pipes seemingly designed to pump hot steam into areas where you need to be.

** Space Shuttle launches produced far more steam than other rockets because of the sound suppression water system used to muffle the engines. NASA had to come up with this because the Shuttle's payload bay was so close to the launch pad. Acoustic waves reflecting off the pad could have damaged sensitive cargo. Their solution was dumping 300,000 gallons of water on the pad just before ignition; a lot of this was converted to steam during a launch.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' has Stanley Steamer Spaceships and Stanley Steamer ''tanks''. Sometimes justified in the latter case; the primary STC tank of the Imperium is of extremely basic design, so much so that the things can be adapted to run on 'actual steam engines''. This is quite a popular option on less developed worlds; after all, a steam engine can be made to run on just about anything you can reliably light on fire.

** And in the [[MetroidPrime Metroid Prime]] Trilogy, it seems every other hallway is spewing steam all the time, made more evident by the fact that we see the condensation on Samus' visor.

* Brought to the logical extreme by LeijiMatsumoto in ''Manga/GalaxyExpress999'': the titular CoolTrain is a spaceship that looks like a train pulled by a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JNR_Class_C62 C62 steam locomotive]], smoke included. Justified out of universe by AuthorAppeal and in-universe by RuleOfCool (Maetel quickly points out it was built with that look because people preferred it to more modern-looking space trains).

* In the {{Doctor Who}} confidential episode for "The Impossible Planet" it's commented by the producer that practically every shot has steam rising from somewhere.
