* ''TheSecretOfNimh'' has Jeremy the Crow. Awkward on land to the point of being a [[TheDitz ditzy]] [[TheKlutz Klutz]], but in the air he's a flying ace.

* A more metaphorical example in ''Literature/{{Safehold}}'' with Allyn Magwair. For a long time, he's considered to be the most useless of the four villains, being an awful politician, naval commander and socialite, but when land war starts, he suddenly turns out to be one of Safehold's most skilled generals.

* In ''{{Series/Firefly}}'', Dr. Simon Tam is often portrayed as a FishOutOfWater, a Core-born fugitive trying to get by on the Rim with the rest of the crew of Serenity. But in the episode "Ariel", where he has to infiltrate a Core hospital to find out what was done to his sister River, it is obvious that he is in his element -- not only does he blend in seamlessly, but he even takes over an operation and saves a patient's life

* Jar Jar Binks from ''ThePhantomMenace'', being an amphibious alien, while a LethalKlutz on land, is a fine swimmer in water.

* Vicar Allayn Maigwair, Captain General of ''Literature/{{Safehold}}'s'' [[CorruptChurch Church of God Awaiting]] is generally regarded as not very bright and near-useless in the political maneuvering that takes up most of the Church's actions in the first three or four books of the series. Once the Church begins active military operations, Maigwair proves himself a CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass as his ideas and strategies manage to catch the protagonists (and their near-omniscient spying capability) completely flat-footed and comes ''very'' close to conquering the Republic of Siddarmark.

** Sea snakes have the same problem that sea turtles have: They don't have the ventral scales that their land-based cousins have and only really leave the water to lay their eggs.

** Sea snakes have the same problem that sea turtles have: have, only worse: They don't have the ventral scales that their land-based cousins have and only really leave cannot move on land at all, and all true sea snakes give live birth in water. *** This also applies for all of the water extinct ichthyosaurs, plesiosaurs, pliosaurs, and mosasaurs. They evolved to lay their eggs.the point they never came to land at all and would die if beached.
