** ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'' introduced the Ranger-class Elites, who were equipped for EVA with anti-gravity and fully-enclosed helmets, though they fight planetside as well. Ranger units in later games use more traditional jetpacks, as do the Brute Jumpers introduced in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}''.

* ''Plan 7 of 9 from Outer Space''. A recorded voice lampshades the NoOSHACompliance of this trope when our heroes strap on jetpacks to escape a ChekhovsVolcano (see Quotes). Facing an imminent death from being boiled alive by lava, they launch anyway.
