* Lakitu from the ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' games flies around on a smiley-faced cloud. In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'', the cloud also exists as an item (called "Jugem's Cloud" due to InconsistentDub) that can be used to skip levels. In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'', Mario can hijack the cloud and fly it himself.

* ''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.

The anime also has a black "evil" cloud which can seemingly be ridden by anyone, as it was used by ProfessionalKiller Tao Pai Pai.

** 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]].
