* Ben Burt found the sound for Vader's breathing by sticking a microphone into a Scuba regulator, and breathing in and out. So if you've ever been Scuba diving, the sound is quite familiar.

* Used as part of the background music in ''VideoGame/SilentHill1''. The in Universe explanation is that it's Alessa's labored breathing in hospital. The real world explanation is that a game that breathes as you play it is ''fucking creepy''.
** Likewise for some of the ambience in its sequel, ''SilentHill3'', which also sometimes includes a HeartbeatSoundtrack.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/JeanMichelJarre's ''Music/{{Oxygene}}'' album has a white noise breathing sound effect between certain tracks, hence the album title, while "Oxygene Part 10" from ''Oxygene 7-13'' ends with a digital sample of a respirator.

* Max Barry's ''MachineMan'' has this for [[spoiler: Dr. Charles Neumann after he's been reduced to a ManInTheMachine]]. Every word he speaks requires another gasp from plastic lungs.

** By the events of ''Film/RogueOne'', [[spoiler: Saw Guerrera]] relies on a breathing mask which makes this sound, though he doesn't need to use it constantly.

* There are people still alive today who contracted polio (which causes muscle paralysis, including the diaphragm which is what allows us to breathe) as children before a vaccine was discovered and thus permanently reside in iron lungs.
** Which also falls under AndIMustScream. [[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner Isn't that great?]]
* The Film/StarWars sound designer, Ben Burtt, got the effect by sticking a microphone inside a set of SCUBA gear and then breathing through it. Needless to say, that means anyone wearing real SCUBA gear has Vader Breath, intentionally or not.



* Breathing while wearing a gas mask or a respirator can give out this sound as well.



** Or, judging by the description, he could be supported by some form of super-lightweight iron lung, as above.
* Heavy breathing while wearing a face mask for paintball or airsoft (such as after making a long run) can cause the person to hear their own breath in this way. Similarly, snorkeling has the same effect.
* Steam locomotives can, from time to time, make dreadful wheezing, hissing, gasping noises, especially if they have not been properly maintained.
* Chest colds and Asthma can make one do this.

* Gol in ''JakAndDaxter'' wheezes constantly for no apparent reason. It may be an effect of his Dark Eco corruption, but none of the other corrupted characters in the series have any noticable breathing difficulty, including Gol's sister. Gol has parts of his body [[ArtificialLimbs replaced with precursor technology,]] so it's probably either a result of the tech itself, or whatever injury caused him to lose those parts of himself in the first place.

* Since Darth Vader doesn't seem to be carrying an oxygen tank around with him, he is assumedly using a RealLife device known as an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxygen_concentrator oxygen concentrator]]. As the name implies, these work by pulling concentrated oxygen out of the surrounding air, and it really does sound ''just like'' VaderBreath.

* ''KnightsOfTheOldRepublic 2'' has a section where you character must don a spacesuit to travel across the outside of a space station. Seeing as it's a Franchise/StarWars game and as such, you can't go ten minutes without a ShoutOut, the spacesuit has breathing very similar to Vader's.
