* ''Manga/DragonBall'' (loosely based on ''Literature/JourneyToTheWest'', below) has The Flying Nimbus/''Kintoun'', a fast, yellow, possibly sentient cloud that Goku got from Roshi who in turn got it from Korin. It only allows people who are [[OnlyThePureOfHeart pure of heart]] to ride it; anyone else just falls through it like, well, a cloud.

** Goku's Flying Nimbus was parodied in Manga/BoboboboBobobo during the gang's fight with Over; turns out a sentient cloud isn't a good way to break a fall as Bobobo, Don Patch, and Jelly Jiggler fall right through him [[AmusingInjuries straight into the bear traps]].

* The original ''Oriental Adventures'' from ''Advanced TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' has the spell "Cloud Trapeze", which allow a wu jen and some passengers to fly on a magical cloud. Although short-lived, it's also very quick, probably the fastest aerial method of travel in the game.
