* Franchise/TheFlash has a rarely used ability to walk on air (though it doesn't explain one instance of Barry running through ''the vacuum of space''), explained as consciously lessening the effect that normal counteracts the huge amount of air resistance the Flash should encounter (he doesn't usually create a sonic boom or leave a fiery trail like a meteor due to the same effect). With the effect dialed down under his feet, he can move his legs fast enough for the air resistance to give him traction. The [[LegacyCharacter older Flash, Jay Garrick]] specifically, would rapidly move his legs, building up air pressure under him to float when he was dropped by one of his fellow heroes.

* Franchise/TheFlash has a rarely used and totally inexplicable ability to walk on air (and in one instance Barry ran through ''the vacuum of space''). The [[LegacyCharacter older Flash, Jay Garrick]] specifically, would rapidly move his legs, building up air pressure under him to float when he was dropped by one of his fellow heroes.

* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'': Several Quirks can be used to propel one's self in the air. For example, Bakugou uses the momentum of his {{Hand Blast}}s to push himself upwards, while Uraraka can use her [[GravityMaster powers]] on herself to float.

* ''Literature/{{Domina}}'': There are a number of powers that grant flight-like abilities, but very few that are simply ''flight''. [[GravityMaster Gravity control]] is one of the more common types, especially since many people can only use it on themselves instead of others, but it's technically just [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory falling with style]]. [[VoluntaryShapeshifting Morphers and shifters]] can grow wings, [[PlayingWithFire pyros]] can generate rockets, and most [[MindOverMatter kinetics]] can wear a belt made of their chosen material and lift that to simulate flight. There is even one person who appears to have some power that [[MagicCarpet animates a carpet that he then rides]].

* Similar to the Hulk, (see below) Saitama from ''WebComic/OnePunchMan'' can't actually fly, but he ''can'' leap so far, high, and fast and land unscathed that you may as well call it flying. He even used this to get from the top of a building to a spaceship above the city. It might even be more impressive than Hulk's jump-flying since Saitama is such an unassuming figure compared to him.

He's capable of [[spoiler:flying from the Moon back to Earth in a single bound.]]

** SelfDemonstrating/{{Magneto}} can pick himself up with metal objects that he levitates with his powers. He is sometimes stated as outright flying (or "levitating") by using the Earth's magnetic field.
** [[IcePerson Iceman]] can do that thing where he makes a trail of ice in the air which he surfs on. The thing is that his "Ice Slides" as he calls him still need to be anchored to the ground somewhere. Some more realistic depictions show this as a strictly short range transportation option.
