* Averted with ''Film/ThePoseidonAdventure''. Belle used to be a champion underwater swimmer, but she's years older now, and although she makes it through to the other side of the underwater area and saves the reverend, it's too much for her heart and she dies.

* In ''CommandAndConquerRedAlert'' 2 & 3, Tanya Adams can swim across any sized body of water without slowing down to sink a dreadnought with C4. A few other infantry units from all factions in 3 are this as well

* ''Film/{{Mermaids}}'' has Kate Flax who actually wants to be an Olympic swimmer. She can already swim astoundingly well for a kid of her age [[spoiler:unless she's drunk]].

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animalympics}}'' features ''actual'' Olympic swimming, but Animalympics being Animalympics, it takes it ''beyond'' Olympic swimming: When caught by a massive wave caused by his opponent, the ginormous Japanese orca [[NamesToRunAwayFromRealFast Ono Nono]], the Californian otter Dean Wilson resorts to riding through the tube, using his own tail as a surf board. Granted, being from So-Cal, he is trained in doing this well enough to keep cool all the time, but he has certainly never trained switching to surfing while in the middle of a swimming race.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyCrystalChroniclesEchoesOfTime'': [[SuperDrowningSkills In contrast to]] [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyCrystalChroniclesRingOfFates the previous game]], the hero and whatever allies s/he picks up can swim and even dive indefinitely despite their heavy equipment. An area in one dungeon is ''entirely'' swum.

An area in one armor and weaponry they have equipped (one dungeon is ''entirely'' swum.swum). They can also dive, and though they swim back up immediately, the player can just keep hitting the dive button over and over to keep them underwater with no ill effects.

** Played straight in ''[[TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'', ''[[TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]]'', ''[[TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'' and ''[[TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]'', where Link can swim for an indefinite amount of time on the surface of the water. Underwater swimming does have a time limit until you get the proper items, but that's a [[OxygenMeter different trope]].
** Averted in ''[[TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker The Wind Waker]]'' where there's no underwater swimming and surface swimming is limited by a stamina meter. Because the game is set on an ocean, this was done to prevent the player from traveling between the islands without the boat.

* Zig-zagged in the various games of ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' series.
** Probably justified in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast A Link to the Past]]''. Link starts out with SuperDrowningSkills, but is then able to swim indefinitely after he gets an item called the Zora Flippers, [[AWizardDidIt which are magic]], presumably explaining why they allow to swim forever.
