Added DiffLines:

* In the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' fighting games, characters who hover will usually bob up and down, such as Patchouli and Cirno in their standing idle pose, as well as almost all characters in ''Hopeless Masquerade'' and ''Urban Legend in Limbo'', where combat happens in midair.

* Happens in ''WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' when IronMan flies into space to search for BigBad Kang's ship. Of course, this was right after coming to a stop [[SpaceFriction without benefit]] of retro-rockets.

* Anyone affected by the "Float" spell in any given ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' game will hover above the ground for a while. Flying enemies also did this in ''IV'' through ''VI''.

to:

* Anyone affected by ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'': Sometimes seen with flying enemies or party members under the influence of the "Float" spell spell. Specifically:
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'': Party members affected by Float bob; flying enemies do not, presumably due to graphical limitations when dealing with large, high-quality enemy sprites (most do not animate
in any given ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' game will hover above significant way when attacking, either).
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'': Thanks to
the ground for a while. graphical upgrade, many flying enemies such as Bombs (floating fire-elemental orbs with faces) now bob.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'':
Flying enemies also did this in ''IV'' through ''VI''.mostly bob; Floating party members, interestingly enough, don't, acting as though they were standing on an invisible platform about four feet off the ground.

* All over the place in TheDCAU. Occasionally averted, which tends to look weird.

* Luke Skywalker and the other X-Wing pilots do a good bit of this in ''StarWars''. It's only when they do a close-up cockpit shot of one of the X-Wing pilots. Everybody just kind of...bobs. Very odd, especially since the X-Wings themselves certainly aren't bobbing around in the longer shots. The speeders largely subvert this however in that when they are idling they are completely motionless and often don't even react when someone is mounting/dismounting/operating them. (Aside from Luke's speeder in ANH, but that is mentioned on screen to be a bit of a cheapo/junker.)

* Peeves in ''Literature/HarryPotter'' bobs most likely not due to the qualities of floating, but due to the fact that he has the energy and attention span of a ritalin deprived ADHD 6 year old on a sugar rush.

* A notable aversion in ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''. When in human form, Syl never bobs in midair, instead walking as if along an invisible floor. Kaladin notes that she always acts like whatever form she's taking; as a leaf she blows along with the wind, so on and so forth.
