* Possibly by accident in ''Webcomic/GetMedieval''. [[http://get-medieval.livejournal.com/226663.html A near-miss fired at the heroes while they were preparing for takeoff from the moon]] is accompanied by a KABOOM! -- which makes perfect sense, since the shot ''hit'' the moon and the sound can be conveyed through the regolith. (This does not stop people in the [[{{Livejournal}} comments section]] from hypothesizing some kind of glancing blow to explain the noise.)

** Working with George Lucas on ''Star Wars'', Creator/AlanDeanFoster strongly objected to explosions in space and produced several viable alternatives. Lucas' reply wasn't "but it makes this more like the old-time serials", it was a cynical "There's a lot of money tied up in this film and people expect to hear a boom when something blows up, so I'll give them the boom." Foster hasn't worked with Lucas since.

* The {{DCAU}} plays it straight with sound effects, but averts it with voices: Everyone who talks in space are clearly seen as using electronic means to communicate. Except for Lobo, who talks in space unaided due to the RuleOfFunny.

* The main cast of ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' can talk to each other in space, and Kaeloo was once shown ''yelling'' audibly at Mr. Cat while floating in space.

Added DiffLines:

* Both averted and played straight in ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey''. All the exterior space shots are absolutely silent, but shots of Poole and Bowman inside spacesuits and EVA pods are filled with noisy machinery and the breathing of the astronauts. However the sequel ''Film/TwoThousandTenTheYearWeMakeContact'' had conventionally noisy space.

* ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyInfiniteWarfare'', works around this by having the helmets that pilots wear enable artificial audio.

* ''Film/{{Superman}} II'': Zod and his minions hold a conversation on the moon. Considering the [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands kinds of powers]] that Kryptonians had [[ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths in that era]], this doesn't seem too way out. At least it wasn't [[http://comiccoverage.typepad.com/comic_coverage/2009/01/the-superpowers-that-time-forgot-part-3.html Super Antiquing-Breath]]. It's still a matter of the sound travelling through a vacuum from one person to another.
