* In a variant of the rule, British childrens cartoon ''PeppaPig'' is to be seen in the future wearing safety belts while riding in a car, as well as helmets when riding bikes. And the creators of the show are also taking retroactive remedy in that all older episodes ''are to be edited to feature them wearing safety belts and helmets as well''.

* PlayedForLaughs in ''Disney/BigHero6''. Baymax, being the ever-helpful health service robot, gently advises that Hiro put on his seat belt while they're in the midst of a car ChaseScene.

* When she was first introduced, X-Men character Pixie often wore a bicycle helmet when she flew more than a few feet off the ground out of fear of crashing. Note that Pixie is pretty much a mutant/fairy hybrid and she flies with ''butterfly'' wings. She eventually grew out of it.

* The ''SwatKats'' justified their need for it- their primary vehicle was a [[CoolPlane custom jet fighter]]- of course they'd need em! Though they were cool enough (and given the villains they faced, needed enough) to be worn when they were on foot, or using their countless other vehicles (motorcycles, drill tanks, sandmobiles).

It should also be noted, at least according to [[http://www.ncrider.com/What-is-wrong-bicycle-helments.html this site]], that nobody really wore helmets as much as they do now until TheNineties. Ironically, accidents went up, because people believed if you wore a helmet, you were guaranteed safe from any accident. Face it, while a helmet does have some protective value, it's not going to make you invincible.

* Even someone as {{Badass}} as CaptainAmerica wears a helmet while using his motorcycle. (Helps that it's a pretty CoolHelmet.)

** In "Sweat Ride", Linda is riding skates and Jeremy somehow instantly notices that her hair is actually a hair-shaped helmet.

* ''WesternAnimation/DragonBooster''. Justified as they are racing on dragons at ludicrous speeds while swinging around weapons and thus the helmets are needed not only for head protection, but for their visors to see. Most helmets cover the entire head with only a small gap for the mouth, justified as they need to shout orders to their dragons. Some, like Moordryd's even have chin protection beneath the mouth gap. Hilariously the most ineffective helmet is worn by Phistus, the head of the very physical Grip of the Dragon crew, and is essentially a skullcap with spikes and a chinstrap.
** Artha's magically-generated armor comes with an attached helmet, while Moordryd's is possibly a subversion as his Shadow Booster headgear looks more like a tight face mask with a crest.

** This is explicitly [[http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/8460753.stm because of complaints from at least one parent with children refusing to wear seatbelts]]

** However, there's one instance in ''[[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Dino Thunder]]'' of a helmet appearing out of ''nowhere'' between shots, when Tommy has to drive a barely-conscious Elsa out of the area on an ATV. Earlier, Tommy also makes a point of fastening his seat belt before driving off even though the ''freaking Tyrannosaur chasing him'' seemed to be the greater safety hazard. Though, as the page quote shows, he does chide himself for it immediately afterwards.
