* The final exam of the German Kampfschwimmer (Combat Divers; allegedly more {{Badass}} than their US counterparts, the SEALS, but slightly less impressive than the UK Special Boat Service) involves an apnoe walk around the bottom of a training pool, which is why until today, no woman has ever passed the test (lack of lung volume).

* The novel ''Sirena'' depicts the sirens as mermaids and the sea nymphs as water-breathing human-figures who can walk underwater or walk ''in'' water (in three-dimensions) as easily as humans walk on land.

* Among the many feats of {{Badass}}itude of ''Franchise/StreetFighter'''s Akuma is the ability to walk unfazed along the bottom of the ocean. Which he then jumps off of and splits the sunken ship he was standing on in two with his feet.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' set in the Antarctic involved Starscream getting a set of PowerArmor that made him nearly invulnerable. However, due to the loss of his T-Cog, he was unable to fly, so [[EnemyMine Optimus and Dreadwing]] simply blew the ice out from under him to send him underwater. But since Starscream doesn't need to breathe, he's seen wading along the seafloor at the end of the episode.

* Master Chief, when jumping into the coolant pools during the "Keyes" sequence in ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved''. Or if you drive into the ocean on the beach level (no reason to, but hey, you can do it). Justified, as the MJOLNIR armor is stated to weigh well over a ton. The same mechanic is shown in cutscene in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'', in which MC jumps into Delta Halo's "ocean" to avoid a Covenant plasma attack and goes straight to the bottom.

* Many videos and advertisements for ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'''s Mahri Nui storyline showed the characters walking around on the ocean floor, however, the books, comics and serials showed them swimming.

* In the episode "Double Bubble" of the animated series, ''WesternAnimation/TheLittleMermaid'', there are two twin merbabies who crawl along the seafloor in the most improbable way ever, despite having a tail, and being shown to know how to swim with them.

* Golems in the Literature/{{Discworld}}, being automata, can do this. When BoxedCrook Moist von Lipwig is assigned one as his parole officer in ''Discworld/GoingPostal'', he is reminded that even fleeing to a different continent would not help him, as it would be able to walk any body of water [[ImplacableMan eventually]]. In addition, said parole officer previously spent several decades at the bottom of a well manning a pump, and another golem spent several ''thousand years'' at the bottom of the ocean before it was recovered, but neither of them did much walking in that time.
