* Salvatore Doni does this after his first fight with Godou in the novels for {{LightNovel/Campione}}. His [[MadeOfIron Man of Steel]] Authority renders him practically invulnerable but also causes his weight and density to increase in proportion to the damage it is defending against. When fighting out on a lake Godou manages to hit Doni with [[ThePowerOfTheSun the White Stallion]]. Cue Doni sinking straight to the bottom. He is unharmed but considers Godou the victor since it took Doni until the next morning to get to the shore, taking him out of the fight.

* The episode "[[Recap/TransformersPrimeS2E13Triangulation Triangulation]]" of ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' set in the Antarctic involved Starscream getting a set of PoweredArmor 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 form 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.
** Ironically averted with his ragdoll in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}''. Nothing like watching more than a ton of solid steel armor float down the river. Played straight in the actual gameplay (when Master Chief is alive). Jumping into deep water make you sink and [[SuperDrowningSkills kills you instantly]] (likely for gameplay reasons; Master Chief should be able to survive it, but since there's no actual way to get yourself out of the deep body of water, you just die). There are some places where the water is deep enough to immerse yourself, but not deep enough to kill you. It can make for handy cover.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout4}}'': any character wearing [[PoweredArmor Power Armor]] will walk underwater instead of swimming. (The armor has a breathing system, even when the character is not wearing the helmet.)

* 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.
