* ''WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}}'' provides the page image. As the caption points out, Aquaman is not normally associated with the power of flight. Wonder Woman (in the comics at the time of the series' original run, and ''in the series itself'') had an "invisible jet" rather than the power of independent flight. Presumably the pose was just chosen so for balance; it would have been awkward trying to fit FIVE characters on the ground under the three (Superman, Green Lantern, and Hawkman) that can canonically fly. Wonder Woman could be explained as lying on the floor of her invisible plane, though Aquaman really is a mystery.

** In the silver and bronze age comics flight was of course what the Hawks were named for, but they rarely used flight ''alone'' to solve problems they faced; their real go-to skill was that they were experts in archaic melee weapons (befitting their cover identity as archaeologists). They were particularly fond of maces and caestus (leather gauntlets, often with spikes or metal plates, used to give your boxing skills that extra punch). They were also pretty good at detective work, since what they ''really'' were was Thanagarian police officers (who actually were interested in archaic Earth melee weapons as a hobby).

* Team Kimba of the WhateleyUniverse has everyone except Chaka able to fly in one way or another, and Chaka can do WireFu to run through treetops and such. The only problem is they don't all fly at anywhere near the same ''speed''.

* In ''LightNovel/MagicalGirlRaisingProject'', while some Magical Girls can fly via their special abilities, such as Top Speed (ride a fast broomstick) or Mao Pam (control four wings), others are able to fly because it's part of their motif, such as the Peaky Angels having wings (since they're angels) or Magicaloid 44 having rocket boosters (since she's a robot).

* This was true in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' for two seasons. Then, in the third season, we're introduced to the grand majority of magic users who are not powerful enough to fly. (We actually did get to see some of these {{Red Shirt}}s in the first two seasons, but it was never made clear that they were ground-bound as well as {{Mooks}}.)

* In ''Manga/DragonBall'', flight is initially presented as a technique of the Crane Hermit, but by the last TournamentArc before ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' pretty much everyone who fights (except Yajirobe) can fly. (Apparently it's possible for someone who knows how to teach just about anyone to do it, as Gohan taught Videl.) There's a brief gag in the Android Saga when Bulma expects him to take off after the other heroes and he has to remind her that he can't.

* [[MemeticMutation Christopher Walken can fly]], although he doesn't like to in public -- apparently many people find Flying Christopher Walken even more disturbing than regular Christopher Walken. However, this skill did come in handy when he made the music video for FatboySlim's "Weapon Of Choice."

* ''VideoGame/ChildOfLight'' initially plays like a platform game, until you defeat the first boss, whence Aurora (literally) [[PowerGivesYouWings earns her wings]] and flight becomes the primary means of travel.
