** ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime 2'' gives the player a propeller along with the Gravity Suit, allowing the player to hover a limited distance underwater.

* On ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse,'' [[WizardsFromOuterSpace Gems]] apparently do this, as seen by [[HotBlooded Ruby]] in "Keystone Motel." Justified in "It Could've Been Great," when (unlike [[KidHero Steven]]) they also walk normally on the moon--according to [[TheSmartGuy Peridot]], their HardLight bodies adjust to the gravity of whatever environment they're in.

* In ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'', this is Juggernaut's default way of crossing water. One of the most famous examples of this was after his first battle with Franchise/SpiderMan, which left the Juggernaut buried in concrete - he simply tunneled his way into the Hudson River and walked out to sea.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', any character wearing [[PoweredArmor Power Armor]] will walk underwater instead of swimming. The good news is that the armor's helmet will let you breathe, the bad news is that all the water in the Commonwealth is heavily irradiated, so even if you've upgraded your armor to increase its rad resistance, you won't want to take too long a bath.

* This is how hippos move. They are actually very unadapted to actual swimming, so they walk on the river bottom.

* Seen in the CatGirlNukuNuku [=OAVs=] when Nuku goes to the beach. After she dives into the ocean, she sinks right to the bottom. Being a robot, she doesn't breathe, so it doesn't hurt her, but she's rather embarrassed.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/LostPlanet'' ''2'', Every level with a focus on water is this trope incarnate. Players, AI teammates, enemy soldiers, [[HumongousMecha Vital Suits]], and land-based [[StarfishAliens Akrid]] all walk along the sea floor and use weaponry completely unhindered. No oxygen meter, no speed penalty, no weapon usage restrictions, just a slightly blurry view, muffled noises, and a slower falling speed. The only real gameplay change between water and land based levels is the ability to "swim", which has the player swim slightly forward after pressing the jump button in mid-air (er... mid-water). Outside of water levels, water acts as either decoration that can be walked through without any gameplay changes, or as an instakill hazard meant to keep players on their toes[[note]] Said water hazards tend to be lethal due to rapid currents that sweep players away or schools of deadly [[PiranhaProblem Piranha-like aquatic Akrid]] that kill you on contact[[/note]].

* The episode "[[Recap/TransformersPrimeS2E13Triangulation Triangulation]]" of ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' is set in the Antarctic and involves 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.

* This is what tanks do to tread water barriers. One of the reasons Germany had an edge over Soviet Union during the beginning of WW2 was that the Soviets wanted their light tanks to swim, rendering them too lightly armored to be of any use, while Germans made their tanks able to go underwater with snorkels and thus able to cross most rivers while retaining their combat capabilities.
