* Flying fish actually has existed for quite some time in TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering, but it's only recently that they actually have the creature type Fish (creature type being the relative equivalent of species). Case in point: As early as the year 2000, we have [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=21280 Cloudskate]], a flying manta ray, and [[http://magiccards.info/od/en/61.html Amugaba]], a flying eel, but both have the creature type of ''Illusion'' instead (perhaps as a LampshadeHanging). Then there is also [[http://magiccards.info/cmd/en/52.html Mulldrifter]], an ''Elemental'' (in Lorwyn, Elementals are [[MixAndMatchCritters amalgamations of many animals]], and this one just happens to be [[JustifiedTrope part fish and part bird]]). Only recently we have actual flying fish in the form of [[http://magiccards.info/zen/en/78.html Windrider Eel]] and [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=194103 Sky-Eel School]], in addition to erratas which gives other sea-creature types to those that don't have them when they are printed.

* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'': It is not uncommon for cards based sea life to show up as sky-dwelling creatures [[note]]Mechanically, this means a creature with a creature type associated with the water also having the keyword Flying[[/note]].

** Aside from fish, other creature types traditionally associated with the sea have appeared as sky-based creatures. [[KrakenAndLeviathan Leviathans]] have appeared as flying creatures often enough that nearly a third of all Leviathan creatures have had Flying, beginning with [[http://magiccards.info/ds/en/120.html Eater of Days]] (in actuality a flying construct based on a leviathan) and [[http://magiccards.info/gp/en/34.html Sky Swallower]] (the first actual flying leviathan).

* ''EternalSonata'' has enemies that resemble swordfish. They're just as much at home hovering over the sand as hovering over the water as hovering over a spiral ramp that plays music when you walk on it. It's all the same.

For some reason, in fiction -- especially VideoGames -- one can encounter fish that float in the air. Given sufficient animation, in fact, they will clearly be ''swimming'' through the air. These creatures are typically found on beaches and around waist-deep water -- but not always. The next most common habitat for the FlyingSeafoodSpecial is ''[[SandIsWater the desert]]''.

* The [[http://www.thefutureiswild.com/futurassic.asp?level1id=4&level2id=11&level3id=46&level4id=73 Flish]] from ''TheFutureIsWild''. Apparently a fish that would live on Earth 200 million years from now...
* Subverted for Vyvyan on ''TheYoungOnes'', who once looked out the window, saw a shark passing by the glass, and declared it this trope and the most [[CatchPhrase completely brilliant]] thing he'd ever seen. Then Mike spoiled it by explaining that London had flooded, meaning the shark was only swimming, not flying.

Added DiffLines:

** 3.5 and 4[[superscript:th]] Editions have the Astral {{Kraken|AndLeviathan}}. In 3.5, it's a mindless giant vermin that prowls the Astral Plane for life forces to consume; in 4e, it's an evil super-genius psychic horror from beyond the stars that exists to spread madness.

* In ''GuildWars'' factions, some Jade Sea creatures do this, with irukandji and scuttle fish being the main ones. This is necessary as the entirety of their home sea was converted to solid jade.

** ''VideoGame/PokemonGo'' takes things UpToEleven: With AR mode on, you can actually have a flying seaking on Earth, sorta. Even with AR mode off, this trope is still played straight, many water pokémons appear floating above ground, sometimes far away from the nearest body of water!
