* ''[[{{Megamind}} Megamind: The Button of Doom]]''. Having taken on the role of Defender of Metrocity, Megamind does a GoodCostumeSwitch including rocket boots, in imitation of the previous FlyingBrick superhero, Metro Man. They don't work very well when fighting a HumongousMecha, so Megamind goes back to using a SpiderTank instead.

** This was clearly a retcon of the comic-book ''Iron Man,'' due to the fact that boot-only rockets would too-obviously end up failing hilariously as shown; thus since comic-bok Iron Man already had repulsor-rays in his gauntlets, they rationalized that he could simply use them to stablize himself in flight, and avoid flipping over backwards like that when he fired his rocket-boots.

* The Rocketeer is one of ''VideoGame/PulpAdventures'' available party members and has flight-related abilities, from hovering above ground while being able shoot, to ramming the target. There's also the Nazi Rocket Troopers, who are Nazi mooks with jetpacks; the Rocketeer initially appears ingame because he has been hired by the protagonists especially to not be too disavantaged against the Nazi Rocket Troopers.
