** Darth Vader. Weirdly, the breathing never stops, even when he's talking. This is most apparent at the very end of ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'', when Vader's yelling "Noooo..." According to ''Literature/DarkLordTheRiseOfDarthVader'', his vocal cords and lungs are both only barely usable and he [[WeCanRebuildHim relies on an artificial life support system built in his suit]], and the constant asthmatic breathing is a constant mechanical pump supplying oxygen, while his speech is really severely amplified to make it louder than a whisper. In ''Literature/ShadowsOfTheEmpire'' we see that he can use TheDarkSide of the Force to briefly heal and breathe on his own, but only for a moment, and then his sudden joy at being able to do that breaks his Dark Side focus. There were plans to give Vader a [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Darth_Vader%27s_armor#cite_ref-DSn_43-0 new suit]] that would remove several of the problems mentioned above. Too bad the procedure put his life at serious risk. [[note]] Namely, the previous suit, including the oxygen pump, would have to be removed.[[/note]]

* Almost any parody of Vader, including the ones done by ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' and ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark,'' must include Vader Breath. Conversely, if a character on a show such as these suddenly develops Vader Breath, it ''becomes'' a parody of Vader.

* RuneScape has Mi-Gor, a small zombie wearing a gas mask. The breath is not actually heard, just described in the dialogue lines as *wheeze* before every line, and before that, "as if someone is trying to talk with his throat full of mud".
* VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas DLC Dead Money has the Ghost People, all of whom have wheezy, raspy, ''loud'' breath. The loud breathing is the best way to tell when they're sneaking up on you. Serves as ParanoiaFuel when you can't see them, but you can hear them breathing.

* [[TheUnintelligible The Pyro]] in VideoGame/TeamFortress2 has this in Meet the Pyro and presumably in-universe as a result of asbestos lung damage.

* ''VideoGame/{{Wolfenstein}}'s'' [[PoweredArmor Heavy Troopers]] sound like this, if you can get close to them unnoticed. It's probably because they're vat-grown {{Super Soldier}}s with insufficiently developed lungs.

* Parodied in the second ''Film/NightAtTheMuseum'' film, where the BigBad Kahmunrah recruits historical "bad guys" UsefulNotes/{{Napoleon}}, UsefulNotes/IvanTheTerrible, and UsefulNotes/AlCapone as his [[TheDragon Dragons]]. Later, two more "bad guys" ask to join them. One is [[SesameStreet Oscar the Grouch]] and the other is Darth Vader, who doesn't say a word. Kahmunrah doesn't get what's so scary about Vader and points out that he sounds as if he's having trouble breathing. Vader tries a Force Choke, further confusing Kahmunrah.
