** One of the powers potentially available for a Rahkshi (their creators, the Makuta have it by default) is Density Control. This can be used not only for phasing through walls and attacks, but for [[NotQuiteFlight floating into the air]] and then [[ColonyDrop dropping with the force of a meteor]]. Makuta Krika frequently made use of this power after a mutation caused him to lose most of his other abilities. [[spoiler: It also lead to his death. When forced out of control, his power turned him so intangible that he simply ceased to exist.]]

Makuta can also ignore several of the RealityEnsues moments this power would bring due to the fact they're TheNeedless and don't require air or sustenance to survive thanks to being {{Energy Being}}s inside AnimatedArmor.

* TheFlash can do this for about a few seconds, by "rapidly vibrating his molecules". He hasn't done this trick much since ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths, though.

* This also shows up in ''Series/TheFlash2014''. It's something Barry has to learn and doesn't use it much (at first). The Reverse-Flash, however, uses it ''a lot'', including using it to erase hard drives and kill people rather horrifically, then dispose of their bodies. Again, falling through the floor is never even brought up. Ditto Zoom, who ''really'' likes killing people by punching through their chests with a vibrating fist. He also saves Caitlin from [[spoiler:Killer Frost]] by running ''through'' her. Later on, Barry gets the hang of it and is able to even use it to surprise the Reverse-Flash. Kid Flash takes a while to learn this trick, but finally manages to pull it off in order to [[spoiler:neutralize the powers of a metahuman with the TouchOfDeath]]. The same episode also has Barry phase an ''entire train'' full of people through a barrier. And yes, the train stays on the rails.

* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' features Mirio Togata, a character with this power that more or less adresses all the FridgeLogic brought up in this page's entry. Whenever he activates his ability, he becomes unable to see, hear or breathe, being able to only sense his fall to the Earth's core (because he somehow keeps his mass). The only reasons this power is not considered outright BlessedWithSuck is because a) he can turn individual body parts intangible instead of just his entire body and b) he has a specific {{Required Secondary Power|s}} that causes him to instantly eject back up to the surface when he deactivates his intangibility while phasing through a large mass of something (thus, averting TeleFrag). He has also managed to manipulate this ejecting to be able to essentially move around like if he were teleporting. The only sketchy part is that he's still visible while using his ability (which shouldn't be possible due to light not hitting him), although it's unknown if that's only because of artistic choice from the author's part.
