** The Tiny Bronco in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' is an [[InvertedTrope inversion]]: a seaplane that breaks down when the party tries to fly it out of Rocket Town, forcing them to [[GetOnTheBoat use it as a boat instead.]]

* In ''Videogame/{{Warframe}}'', the Archwing JetPack works in both the depths of space and the crushing depths of the Uranus ocean, albeit moving at nothing more than a brisk jogging pace due to water drag.

* Two inversions occur in ''[[Anime/CodeGeass Code Geass]]'', namely the [[CoolAirship Ikaruga flagship]] and the [[AceCustom custom-built Knightmare Frame Shinkirō]]. Both are initially shown to be flying vessels, thanks to [[HotScientist Rakhshata's]] Air Glide system, but both are later revealed to have submersible properties.

* Inverted in ''GurrenLagann'': the Dai-Gurren, which looks like a ship with legs and a torso, was originally a surface battleship. Later, Leeron converted it to be seaworthy (by tacking on a giant [[strike:oar]] paddle and a pair of flippers...), though they couldn't go very deep. Even later, it nabbed one of the flight spheres of the Dai-Gunten, Cytomander's FlyingAircraftCarrier, gaining the ability of unassisted flight... even though Parallel Works 8 shows us hundreds of these battling the Anti-Spirals in high Earth orbit.
** Similar inversion occured in the final season: while Ganmen were shown earlier as not being water-proof, they CAN fly and fight in space. The Gurren-Lagann doesn't have this problem.

* The Empire of the Rising Sun in ''CommandAndConquerRedAlert 3'' uses the Sea-wing/Sky-wing, a fast anti-air submarine that can [[TransformingMecha transform]] into anti-infantry airplanes. And by "transform", we really just mean "take off"; the two forms are identical.

* Vehicles in ''{{Banjo-Kazooie}} Nuts and Bolts'' tend to turn out this way. Plane-ish vehicles tend to be able to navigate underwater easily (if they have the underwater capable cockpits) and Submarine vehicles tend to fly well (if given wings). Make a boat. Then add wings to it. Bam, flying boat!

* The Helicarrier from ''Film/TheAvengers'' can serve as both an AirborneAircraftCarrier and a regular aircraft carrier, the former presumably meant for covert operations since it comes with an InvisibilityCloak.
