* ''VideoGame/LighthouseTheDarkBeing'' features two ornithopters in the parallel world. One of them is shaped like a bat, and it can be remotely summoned when playing an electronic pan pipe at its highest frequency.



* ''VideoGame/BioshockInfinite'', the floating city of Columbia powered by HARD, if somewhat questionable, science, and with a delightful early 1900 style, it is truly a marvellous, magnificent flying city.

* As mentioned above, various aircraft designs of UsefulNotes/WorldWarI embodied this aesthetic, partially because at the time the great powers in the world needed ''absolutely anything that could vaguely fly'' that they could get their hands on in order to wrest a potential advantage from the skies, floating alongside observation balloons and [[UsefulNotes/{{Airships}} Zeppelins.]] Among the more fanciful designs were the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Etrich_Taube Entrich Taube]], the very first bomber in the world whose wings physically bended and twisted in order to steer, the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Aircraft_Factory_B.E.9 BE9]] who attempted to circumvent the issue of early fighters potentially shooting through their propeller by ''placing the gunner in front of it in a wooden box'' (this was prior to the invention of the synchronization gear), and the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fokker_A.I Fokker A.I]], a reconnaissance monoplane whose wings were controlled by a system of external cables mounted on a mast-like structure.

* ''WebOriginal/TheClockworkRaven'' is all about this. In addition to the title machine, a canvas-winged ornithopter that mostly works as a glider, the characters like to watch flying machines on an island far below their [[FloatingContinent Floating Continent]] home. They see [[https://theclockworkraven.wordpress.com/2016/12/30/wings-4/ examples]] of almost every one of this trope's rules.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'', in particular, features a world where commercial air travel is commonplace; it's definitely a luxury, but not so much of one that regular tourists and pilgrims can't afford it. Massive military fleets with giant cruisers and one-pilot fighters are also standard. And yet, having your ''personal'' airship is still a great symbol of freedom, accomplishment, and adventure, and Sky Pirates are idolized as rogue heroes and even role models for ''achieving'' this freedom, rather than regarded as dangerous criminals.
