* In ''VideoGame/FreedomForce'', TheFlash {{Expy}} Bullet's [[SuperHeroOrigin origin story]] has him being hit with [[SuperSerum Energy X]] while in-flight and crash-landing in Vietnam during the [[VietnamWar war]]. The energy makes him a {{Speedster}}, so he is able to run away from bullets but has trouble [[RequiredSecondaryPowers stopping himself]] before hitting the ocean and ends up running all the way to the US. He can't do that [[GameplayAndStorySegregation in the game]], though.

** An underground lake is magically transformed into a dancing stage for the MagicalGirl and her DarkMagicalGirl rival to have a SwanLake themed dance-off. (ItMakesSenseInContext.) [[FailureKnight Fakir]] also uses it to fight crows, but when the battle turns in his favor, Kraehe causes the water beneath him to no longer magically hold his weight, which nearly causes him to drown.

* British midgit submarine crews in WWII were fond of the trick of "parking" their submarine within half an inch of the surface and standing upon the hull to wave at passers by. It appeared they were standing on water.

The [[TropeCodifier most well-known water-walker]] is probably [[UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}} Jesus Christ]] in the [[Literature/TheBible New Testament]], who casually walked out '''[[UpToEleven over a raging sea]]''' (a feat few other water-walkers have ever matched -- JesusWasWayCool indeed) to meet his disciples' boat. Disciple Peter followed suit, but [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve his lack of faith]] caused him to sink beneath the water and he had to be saved by his master. Despite its Biblical origin, the trope is usually executed ''without'' an especially strong WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic feel to it, as the primary objective is, once again, about looking cool. This doesn't stop the occasional Baptist-Fundamentalist MediaWatchdog from complaining about people other than Jesus being depicted as doing such a thing, despite that Peter walks on the water to Jesus almost immediately after seeing him.
