* Pretty much every level in the ''VideoGame/StarFox'' series, except ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'' and the on-foot/tank/underwater sections in the other games (though the last boss is fought in ships like any other ''Star Fox'' game, while the very first boss, impossible to lose to since the player will have unlimited life energy at that point, has this in the skies of Sauria).

** Lakithunder, the KingMook of Lakitus, is fought in the outdoors final segment of the castle of World 7, which is set in the sky. Same with Giga Lakitu in the second level of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2''.



* The games of the ''VideoGame/MarioKart'' series also usually have at least one track up in the air. ''Mario Kart 8'', for example, has Cloudtop Cruise, while also revealing that N64 Rainbow Road takes place high above the city, a la ''Double Dash'' and its Rainbow Road.



* ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'':
** ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime3'' has [[spoiler:Ghor]] fought in the hanger bay of Skytown, a futuristic city floating in the skies of Elysia.

* ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' features a level set in an airport, culminating in a boss battle atop an aircraft as it takes off. The craft climbs steadily (and quickly) during the battle, and starts falling after the boss's defeat. Afterward, the wreckage can be found at the beginning of another level.
** Similarly done in ''X5''. In fact, flying Mavericks have this as part of their norm.

* At least one part of the final battle in both ''KingdomHearts'' games consists of Sora magically floating/flying while navigating obstacles thrown by the boss in order to attack it. The reason he suddenly has the ability to do so is never explained.

* In ''VideoGame/ArmoredCore'', the battle with AF Answerer is this if you want to avoid being nuked every two seconds.
** There are also three missions in ''For Answer'' that take place high above the clouds in the airspace of the Cradles, airships where humans live to avoid the contaminated Earth surface. One of these missions has you [[spoiler:destroying the Cradles themselves]].

** ''Days of Ruin'' had a mission that you fought on the enemy's air fortress. One of the enemy's minions in the mission cut-scene lampshades the fact that you not only snuck on to the fortress, but somehow managed to bring along '''tanks''' and '''artillery'''.

* And then there is ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'' - which is sort of 'all of the above', considering that all the ship battles are battles between flying pirate ships. Cruising around [[FloatingContinent Floating Continents]]. And towards the end there surely is a climactic face-off with a flying fortress, too!
** ''[[VideoGame/SEGASuperstars Sonic And All Stars Racing Transformed]]'' even paid tribute to this in the ''Skies of Arcadia'' track, where racers race on a floating island that the Valuan Armada and Blue Rogues are battling around in their airships. It's so chaotic the track is decimated quite a bit, causing racers to fly into the sky and dodge mines the Valuans have launched into the air.

* ''PowerStone'' 2 had a level which started on an airship, the ship explodes, and you free fall until you reach the ground where you can continue the battle, grabbing the umbrella during the free falling segment is necessary since if you don't grab it, you take damage when you reach ground level.
* ''[[VideoGame/YoshisIsland Yoshi's Island]]'' had a battle with Raphael the Raven on the moon.

* The final duel in ''VideoGame/{{The Elder Scrolls IV|Oblivion}}: Knights of the Nine'' takes place in the sky a few thousand feet above the world map. Case in point, one player claimed he dropped an item during the battle and then went to check if it landed. [[DevelopersForesight It did.]]

* ''Literature/TheBigOne'' sees the primary action take place at extremely high altitude (by WW2 standards) when the nuclear-armed B-36s evade German defenses by flying over them. The B-36s make their runs to the target at 50,000 feet plus, higher than any German fighter could reach. This is TruthInTelevision.

* Your character in ''VideoGame/MedalOfHonor: Pacific Assault'', en route to Guadalcanal, finds himself suddenly engaged in aerial combat, despite being a foot soldier. At first it's the same spin-the-business that you've grown used to, but before long you're flying the sucker into an assault on a base and another on an aircraft carrier. Smacks a bit of the improbable.
