* One of the characters in OrsonScottCard's ''Literature/{{Pathfinder}}'' novel can do this. Although [[spoiler:it's not really phasing, it is actually a limited form of TimeTravel. The character continuously jumps forward in time by seconds/microseconds. And it is painful, and potentially even deadly to actually phase through people/objects.]]

* The "Become Ethereal" [[MakeMeWannaShout Shout]] from ''TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' ostensibly gives the player this ability for a period of time. For programming reasons, or else to avoid the endless array of glitches and exploits that would result from letting the player turn intangible, it actually just makes you immune to damage for a bit (or until you cast a spell/use a weapon). It's still quite useful both in combat and for [[MundaneUtility jumping off mountains to get around faster]].

Added DiffLines:

* The ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' episode "Just Passing Through" has the boys invent an orb that scrambles the molecules of them and their friends so they can pass through physical objects. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XTcJLYxZMdQ Said episode also has a song by the same name.]]

* ''Comicbook/XMen'': This is ComicBook/KittyPryde's mutant ability. Her ability to not fall through the floor, while not explained well, has nothing to do with the actual, physical floor (which she can pass through if she chooses) and, as such, can be used ''without'' a floor. She often walks on air by visualizing an invisible staircase. Later works have treated it as slow flight. This tends not to show up in adaptations.

*** Creator/JossWhedon created a similar situation in ''Astonishing X-Men'', where Cassandra Nova mindscrewed with Shadowcat and caused her to phase deep into the Earth.
*** Whedon also had Kitty accidentally lose control enough to phase through the floor when she and Peter Rasputin first did the deed, in an amusing display of PowerPerversionPotential.
* Also from X-Men, the villain Shinobi Shaw has the same power. Being a villain, he uses the 'heart squeezing' as his trademark killing move. He also openly admits it can be used for peeping on girls (not that he needs it with his cash)

* Kurau from ''Anime/KurauPhantomMemory '' has this power as well - it's one of her more rarely used powers, as it tends to get her noticed more than [[SuperStrength]] or even flight.
