* This also got a playful nod in ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger''.
** In the episode where the team encounters former [[Series/GekisouSentaiCarranger Carranger]] leader Kyosuke Jinnai, the Gokaiger attack the MonsterOfTheWeek while riding vehicles like scooters and bicycles. Kyosuke admonishes Red and Green for riding double on a single bicycle, which is perfectly in character since he's been shown to be a traffic safety nut throughout the episode.
** Speaking of ''Series/GekisouSentaiCarranger'', that series' slogan was "Fighting for traffic safety!"

* It goes without saying that this is a part of ''Franchise/KamenRider'', which featured helmeted {{Henshin Hero}}es riding motorcycles. However, it also comes into effect when one of the Riders brings someone along on their bike and magically possesses a second helmet for them to use. During the ''Film/KamenRiderWizardInMagicLand'' movie, Haruto gets into a motorcycle chase while ''unmorphed'', and his helmet simply appears between shots. One suspects AWizardDidIt.

Added DiffLines:

* On ''WesternAnimation/PAWPatrol'', Rider normally has a helmet whenever he rides his ATV. The strange part is even ignoring the fact that [[TalkingAnimal pups]] are driving their own [[CoolCar custom vehicles]], they all wear seatbelts designed for humans. When actually visible, the seatbelts are buckled uselessly around their hind legs. If they actually were in a crash, they would be launched away as if they weren't wearing them in the first place.

* ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' has it easy, as helmets are part of Rangers' suits.
** 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 locking the door and fastening his seat belt before driving off even though the ''freaking Tyrannosaur chasing him'' seemed to be the greater safety hazard.

**Series/KamenRiderBuild can summon a helmet out of nowhere as one of his bike's explicit powers, to be worn by himself when unmorphed or by any passengers when morphed. Even though it makes more sense than the times helmets appear out of nowhere between shots, there are still times similar to Tommy's example, where not budging one inch before everyone's helmeted ''no matter what'' can get ridiculous. If, for example, your {{Muggle}} passenger was being ''shot at,'' you'd probably forgo summoning a helmet and waiting for him to put it on before taking off just this once, but nope!



* Same with ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution''. This makes sense with ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}, as he's trying to blend in. But it's weird to see ''Sabretooth'', of all people, wearing a helmet, as he makes no attempt to blend it, and can presumably... [[MurderIsTheBestSolution deal]] with any cop unlucky enough to pull him over.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'': Spider-Man and Black Cat are fleeing from S.H.I.E.L.D. agents on flying motorbikes. When Spidey runs out of web-fluid, Black Cat steals a motorcycle, donning the helmet between shots. Spidey puts a second one on, noting that he's probably gonna need it.

* ''VideoGame/SleepingDogs'' doesn't even allow you to accelerate before the protagonist is quickly putting on the helmet. Bizarrely enough, helmet use is exempt on scooters, possibly due to the low speed (although real life traffic law still enforce helmets on scooters)

** Made almost entirely pointless for the DLC episodes. Due to revamping bike handling to make gameplay easier for TLAD (an episode that focused heavily on motorcycle riding) it's absolutely impossible to fall off the bike, leading to situations where you can end up stuck upside-down, still on your bike -- with getting off the bike the only way to correct it.

* On ''WesternAnimation/DanielTigersNeighborhood'', everyone buckles up in the trolley. Also, in "Daniel's Bicycle," Dad Tiger gives Daniel his old red bike from when he was a kid, spruced up, and the next thing he gives him is a shiny red helmet with blue straps. Later, Daniel places his blue plush tiger, Tigey, in the bike's yellow basket He gets a yellow helmet with blue straps.

He also has a fantasy sequence in which Tigey has come to life and is racing him on a bike. In this, both of them wear sporty blue helmets.

** Also, the series follows this in general whenever Rangers are skateboarding, rollerblading, bike riding,etc. They will wear helmets and knee pads. Most notable in TheMovie

* In ''Series/SesameStreet'', nobody is seen biking, skating, riding a scooter or even riding a pogo stick without wearing a helmet, and this extends even to tricycles. Lampshaded in an "Elmo's World" segment on bikes where the AnimateInanimateObject's that Elmo talked to were a bike and a helmet. Whenever the bike said something that she'd do, the helmet would say [[CatchPhrase "Not without me"]].
