* ''OnePiece'' takes it literally in the Skypeia arc, where the clouds are considered an ocean. Luffy tests whether it works like in the world below...and yeah, it still gives him SuperDrowningSkills.

Added DiffLines:

** The word "pilot" in particular is so closely associated with air pilots that hearing it [[HaveAGayOldTime in its original sense]] can seem odd. When [[Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet Romeo]] says "I am no pilot", he's obviously not talking about [[SchizoTech flying a Cessna in the Renaissance]], but it still sticks out.

* Discussed in ''{{Trigun}}'': Vash compares the large open sky to "the deep blue sea"... even though he's never seen the sea or even been close to a large water point.

* ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'' takes place across a series of floating islands, suspended in a balance of power between [[CelestialParagonsAndArchangels four angelic Primarchs]] created by [[{{Precursors}} the Astrals]].

* TruthInTelevision (sort of) for large planets as Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and their extrasolar equivalents where their atmospheres blend smoothly with either oceans of liquid hydrogen (Jupiter, Saturn, and their kind) or exotic forms of a mixture of water, methane, and ammonia (Uranus, Neptune, and alike).

* ''Anime/LastExile''

to:

* ''Anime/LastExile''''Anime/LastExile'' has airships which, due to their [[SchizoTech otherwise limited technology]], fight each other in a manner similar to pre-industrial naval ships. Furthermore, because of the planet's [[WorldShapes unusual shape]], the sky is a literal barrier that has to be crossed to get from one continent to another.

SisterTrope of SpaceIsAnOcean. In this case, it's the sky being used to make visual/stylistic parallels to the ocean, but the same basic principles apply. As with space, [[{{Metaphorgotten}} the metaphor can easily be taken a little too far]] (although the presence of gravity ''might'' explain parts of it). Often runs on the RuleOfCool.
