As any Navy verteran will tell you, especially if they had to watch theirs sink, this is often TruthInTelevision.

This trope describes a situation in a work of fiction, in which a prominent vehicle used by characters in the story is itself endowed with the qualities of being a character in the eyes of the audience. This is especially probable if said vehicle is essential to the advancement of the plot of the work or the actions of the main characters. Such endowment is represented by sorrow or grief in the event of the destruction of said vehicle. See SpaceshipGirl for when the ship is literally a character.

* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' - The ''Normandy'' in all three games. Its destruction at the start of the second game comes as a PlayerPunch to many, but fortunately it is rebuilt as the bigger and better SR-2 variant.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'' treats its vessels this way. The destruction of [[spoiler:the Going Merry]] is one of the most [[TearJerker emotionally powerful]] scenes.

* ''{{Firefly}}'' - If Serenity didn't exist, then those space cowboys would have nowhere to go. The characters themselves treat her as part of the crew, as does director Joss Whedon: Serenity is described in director's commentary as the tenth member of the crew, in the context of a comment about the eleventh member being Summer Glau's feet.
* ''{{Supernatural}}'' - The Winchester's Impala. So much so that the framing story of the season 5 finale was the biography of that car, treating it as the most important thing in all creation.

* ''Series/{{Airwolf}}'' - The Airwolf Helicopter played such a crucial role in the series that even the main characters routinely endowed it and endeared it as a character all it's own.
