* Both ''IceRoadTruckers'' and, on occasion, ''Series/DirtyJobs'' subvert this by pointing out that while driving on iced-over bodies of water, you ''do not'' wear your seat belt since falling through the ice is a far likelier hazard than crashing, and undoing a seat belt wastes valuable seconds.

* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'': Any of her gadgets will strap on the necessary safety gear. When she pulls the cord to fire up a [[AwesomeBackpack backpack]]-{{jetpack}}, a robot arm pops a helmet on her head.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}}'', even [[GoodThingYouCanHeal Wolverine]] wears a helmet when riding a motorcycle. Presumably the in-universe issue is less safety than not getting a citation.
* Same with ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution''. This makes sense with {{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/CodeLyoko''.
** Averted much of the time. Part of the complex [[strike:excuse to use stock footage]] [[ToTheBatpole route the kids use to get to the factory]] and save the day involves riding skateboards (or in Jérémie and Aelita's case, a scooter) through an AbsurdlySpaciousSewer, yet none of them keep any safety gear down there. You'd think at least safety-conscious Jérémie would stash a helmet with his scooter.

* ''WesternAnimation/KickButtowski'' always wears his helmet when performing stunts... because he never takes it off to begin with. (Never know when a stunt opportunity will present itself.)
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Franklin}}'', and like on ''Arthur'', there's at least one character whose ears stick straight up through their helmet. There's no story about someone getting in trouble because they don't think helmets are cool. There ''is'', however, one entirely focused around Franklin getting a fancy new helmet with a flashing light on top because he's outgrown his old one and some of the other kids find the new helmet goofy. When he hears the kids making fun of that type of helmet, he hides it and tries to borrow his friend Bear's to use for a bike safety rally, only to be told that you should never wear a helmet that hasn't been specifically fitted for you. In the end, another friend helps him to see that it doesn't matter if the other kids think the helmet is dorky and the bike safety officer suggests that the flashing light could be a useful safety feature. He is seen wearing this helmet throughout the rest of the series. FridgeLogic; Franklin being a ''turtle'', wouldn't his head be at ''more'' risk since the helmet would prevent him from fully retracting his head into his shell?

** In "Somepony To Watch Over Me," when Applejack becomes overprotective of her little sister Applebloom, she tries to make her wear a helmet ''all the time''. At one point, she puts a second helmet over the first one.
** In "Pinkie Apple Pie," all of the characters wear life vests when rafting except Big Mac, who wears a floaty and water wings.
** In the season four premier, "Princess Twilight Sparkle," Spike puts on a seatbelt while riding on Twilight's back mid-flight. The question becomes [[FridgeLogic where did it come from?]]

* ''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.
* 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).

* Averted for years in ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' whether the trainer was using a bicycle, roller-blades, a live mount (including a ''legendary Pokémon'' like Latios/Latias in ''Omega Red and Alpha Sapphire''), or a souped-up motorcycle like Wes has in ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'' It's finally played straight in ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', where the trainer's riding outfit for the various Poké-Ride mounts includes a helmet and safety pads.
