* Amongst the big names of the {{DCU}}, you pretty much only have Franchise/{{Batman}}, ComicBook/{{Aquaman}}, and {{the Flash}} ([[{{WesternAnimation/Superfriends}} usually]]) incapable of flight. Which makes ComicBook/{{Hawkman}} and Hawkgirl pretty lame, considering it's their featured ability. To give them more of a reason to be around, focus has started to shift to their skill at bashing villains with AntiMagic [[DropTheHammer maces]].

* The ''TokyoMewMew'' anime sometimes gives everyone the power to levitate for no apparent reason. In episodes centered around Mew Mint, the birdgirl, however, only she can fly. The manga is more consistent on the matter.

* Played with in ''Film/SkyHigh2005''. Only Will's mom Josie (and a few unnamed background students) are known to fly, and for those who do it's generally their only power. Will [[spoiler: being [[TheReveal revealed]] as a FlyingBrick]] is treated as unheard of and spectacular.
* ''Film/CrouchingTigerHiddenDragon'' is the type of movie where flying (among other supernatural abilities) is a standard martial arts technique.

* When Angel was introduced as a member of the ComicBook/{{X-Men}}, it was alongside the very flightless ComicBook/{{Cyclops}} and Beast, while Iceman's ice slides didn't offer the same level of maneuverability and Comicbook/JeanGrey couldn't levitate herself very far. But as the roster has expanded with characters who have flight as a side effect of their powers - ComicBook/{{Storm}}, ComicBook/{{Magneto}}, Rogue (after absorbing the right abilities), Mystique, Cannonball, ComicBook/{{Apocalypse}}, and so on - being stuck with huge feathered wings as a mutation must be annoying. In response, Angel has gained (and sometimes lost) a lot of other powers over the years, such as vision on par with a hawk's, being ''physically'' capable of flight i.e. being both lighter and stronger than normal humans, [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic and recently universal donor blood with regenerative properties]] that, for ''some,'' can heal otherwise-doomed characters from fatal damage. And even when his power of flight was more exclusive, he always made it look like a lot of ''fun'', like every childhood daydream you've had but better.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' has NotQuiteFlight by means of creating platforms of spirit particles underfoot as a basic skill for most of the major factions. I quickly becomes far easier to list the characters with notable spirit power who ''can't'' do this.

It turns out this is, oddly enough, much ''harder'' to in areas that already have high concentrations of spirit particles.
