* There's flying Flying manta rays known as "brith" are part of the background scenery on Dantooine in ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic''.''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic''.

Added DiffLines:

* Not exactly seafood, but the red cloth creatures flying through the air in ''VideoGame/{{Journey}}'' are all modeled after sea life: the smallest tatters gather in shoals like tiny fish, the slightly larger ones resemble dolphins, while the largest in the game are pretty much whales.

Added DiffLines:

* Although ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'' averted this (aquatic enemies stayed underwater), ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' has nearly every Piscinoid enemy type fly. Many of are even shown leaping out of the water when the player approaches, even though in most cases the water wasn't nearly deep enough to submerge in.

* {{Quest 64}}'s lack of being able to be in water is the only reason why the monsters appear as they do. The Magma Fish are made of lava, while the Winged Sunfish could justify it by their name in general. The other Water-aligned monsters don't have this problem, even the other two fish themself.(Fishman and Granagach)
