* The ''VideoGame/{{Ultima}}'' series seems to be the TropeCodifier for this. In ''VideoGame/UltimaI'' and ''VideoGame/UltimaII'' you can acquire and air car or bi-plane respectively, which let you fly over land and water. The air car has lasers you can shoot distant enemies with, but cannot pass through forest areas.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'' [[TropeCodifier started it all]], minus Cid. The airship is found in the middle of the game when you complete a FetchQuest and get it out from beneath a desert, and allows you access to the northern half of the map (where there's no seaports).

->'''Nyarko:''' If we had a vehicle like this at the beginning of the story, [[StoryBreakerPower we would be too mobile]]. Seafaring vehicles belong in the middle. Flying vehicles--at the end. It's common practice.\\
'''Mahiro:''' ''[slaps Nyarko vigorously]'' I hate it more than anything when people are [[HoldingBackThePhlebotinum holding back like that]].

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII'' actually goes through several models, ending up with a veritable behemoth of an airship complete with shop and inn, but which ''still'' can't fly over most mountains. Another type doubles as submarine and is faster, but can't pass over mountains. It's one of the few games in the series where random encounters can happen while flying the airship. The dock serves as the battleground. The largest of the airships helps you out in those random encounters via cannon fire.

Unusually, however, the player gets their first airship only a few hours in, rather than late-game.

* About halfway through ''VideoGame/{{Miitopia}}'', [[spoiler:The Miis defeat a menacing dragon, revealingthe latter to be a very cute and nice fellow named Dominic. After the fight against the [[DiscOneFinalBoss Dark Lord]], he helps the Miis by letting them travel on his back.]] He then can be used to go quickly from one section of Miitopia to another.

* After collecting all the Aether Currents in later areas of ''Videogame/FinalFantasyXIV'', the player can then fly about using their chocobo (or assorted other flying mount), an act which also grants access to a number of additional sidequests. Naturally, the player has to have already visited almost all of the map and completed most of the major quests in that area first.

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' has ''three'' of these: Cid's Enterprise; a captured Red Wings airship renamed Falcon and subsequently retrofitted to fly over lava and use a [[ThisIsADrill huge drill]] to escape the Underworld; and the Big Whale (or [[SpaceWhale Lunar Whale]]), which covers four times the area of the other two (and thus is impossible to land in confined areas) but is capable of shuttling between the Blue Planet and the Moon. When the last of these vehicles is obtained, all three are still available to fly around in.

** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII'', the airship is initially available as a taxi service run by Cid, flying you to a selection of destinations for a fee. You eventually get your hands on your own airship late in the game, [[spoiler:when a dying Cid entrusts his airship to Firion and his party]].



* ''VideoGame/LufiaIIRiseOfTheSinistrals'' had first a boat, then a ''submarine'' -- which, while slower and underwater, did fulfill many of the same functions as an airship, namely the ability to avoid encounters and access the next areas of the game. Eventually, of course, the sub got another upgrade and was an airship as well.
