* ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'': This is one of [[spoiler:Koro-sensei]]'s greatest weakness. [[spoiler:His body will bloat and become immovable when he's underwater due to being highly absorbent. Ironic, for a creature that looks like and often compared to an octopus.]]



* Having grown up in an orphanage, neither Rinne or Fuka of ''Anime/VividStrike'' ever learned how to swim. The rest of the cast teaches them during a minor subplot in the BeachEpisode.

* ''WebAnimation/TheMostPopularGirlsInSchool'': Trisha nearly drowns in the season 5 premier... in the shallow end of the pool... while wearing water wings... despite being a rather tall teenage girl. Mackenzie has to try to fish her out of the water with a hook, before Trisha realizes she can StopDrowningAndStandUp. And apparently, this isn't the first time this has happened.
-->'''Trisha:''' Well, I'm going to go for a dip in the pool.\\
'''Brittnay and Mackenzie:''' ''(immediately)'' [[SpeakInUnison Stay in the shallow end!]]\\
'''Trisha:''' ''(exasperated)'' I ''KNOW''!

** Chimpanzees can swim. They do so for fun.

to:

** Another reason is gait: most mammals are quadrupedal, and even with no prior swimming experience a mammal that falls into a body of water will attempt to mimic the gait it uses on land. That's why quadrupeds like horses, elephants, tigers, bears, and rats are able to swim, and why dogs are able to "doggy paddle." Great apes are not quadrupedal, so their response is less "a walking motion that translates to paddling" and more "flailing and drowning."
** Chimpanzees and orangutans can swim. They do so for fun.

* Gentoku Ryuubi from ''Manga/IkkiTousen''. Usually played for laughs since she's a {{Dojikko}} as well. It's played more seriously in when [[spoiler:she jumps into a huge pond to rescue a drowning Koumei while fully knowing the risks. They survive, but barely.]]

** Anyone who has eaten a Devil Fruit gains a special power, at the cost of losing the ability to swim in the ocean. In fact, having at least half of their body submerged will not only prevent them from using any abilities granted by the fruit, but will drain all strength out of them to the point of near paralyzation, causing them to sink. This is inconvenient, since most of the characters are ''sea-faring pirates on a planet with even less landmass than the Earth''. Note that only actual submersion ''and'' seawater counts; rain is harmless and DF users can still take showers according to Word of God. A few people (mostly winners of the SuperpowerLottery) have Devil Fruit powers that at least partially negate this weakness. Aokiji for example, AnIcePerson, freezes the water just by coming into contact with it, giving him a ''massive'' advantage over other Devil Fruit users; also, Protagonist Monkey D. Luffy still has an [[RubberMan elastic body]] regardless of whether he's in water or not, so he can have somebody else stretch his head outside of the water (he'll still be paralyzed, but he will then be able to breathe, at least).
