* 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.

Related to IfItSwimsItFlies. Compare SpaceWhale and LivingGasbag. Not to be confused with ShamuFu. Can be a type of AirborneMook. FishPeople are similarly air-dwelling sea-creatures (and if their culture has a HorseOfADifferentColor, expect it to be something like this - most likely a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin seahorse]]).

* 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]]''.
