* Possibly in an attempt to make up for ''Franchise/{{Star Wars}}'''s suspicious lack of Space Whales in the Legends continuity, ''[[ComicBook/StarWarsDarthVader Darth Vader]]'' has a pod of cybernetic Space Whales in issue #6.

* ''{{Starscape}}'' had space fire dragon-''things''...
* The reason the [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Zerg]] can survive in space, according to ''StarCraft'' BackStory, is that they absorbed a flock of Space Whales that got too close to their homeworld. These became the behemoths, giant mutants bigger than battlecruisers, one ship can contain a whole brood. Also, some of their air units, such as the Guardian and Overlord, certainly fit the trope (though they look more like space crabs and space... balloon crabs). We never see the behemoths, but ''StarCraft II'' shows their presumed weaponized replacements, the utterly massive leviathans.

* ''JumpingFlash'' has air whales in World 3-2. Uniquely for the game, they [[EverythingTryingToKillYou aren't trying to kill you]], and just sort of float there, wiggling their flukes, and letting you use them as platforms.

* ''{{Spore}}'' has the ability to easily make any vehicle you want. A good number of the Featured creations are spaceships shaped like sea creatures. Including one of a whale and a giant squid fighting.
* Let's not forget the Liir of ''SwordOfTheStars''. Some peculiar cross between Space Whales and Space Dolphins, the eldest members of the Liir are literal whales, albeit whales with immense PsychicPowers and an intelligence several times that of a human. All Liir who ever set their flippers into space are murderously insane... At least by Liir standards, as they're actually willing to harm other beings. Though they can't survive vacuum and use starships.

* [[WayneBarlowe Wayne D. Barlowe's]] ''Expedition'' not only gives us a planet with a wide variety of "Floaters", several of whom are basically Air-Whales, one of these is of human-like intelligence.
* TimothyZahn wrote a series of short stories in the mid 1980s which featured "Space Horses," small Space Whales that could be controlled by means of [[PsychicPowers telepathy]], and were the only known form of FTL-capable transportation. At least one story also featured [[Film/{{Jaws}} space sharks]], oversized predatory life that made a habit of eating not only the Space Horses, but also any starships that they happened to be towing.

* While not quite in space all the time, Gohma Vlitra from ''AsurasWrath'' gives off this vibe and shares the look, as it comes up from the earth and fights Shinkoku ships by piercing beyond the earth's atmosphere to do so.

* The VisualNovel ''{{Ever17}}'' doesn't feature any actual space whales, but its aquatic theme park does have a "Cosmic Whale Room," with a lifelike animatronic whale suspended in a room painted to look like outer space.

* ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'' features various forms of space dwelling creatures, including on that is literally called "Space Whales" on the UI (although they look more like jellyfish than whales).
