* ''ComicStrip/BeetleBailey'': Parodied; Sarge is able to do it because the lake is so polluted.

* ''{{Film/Ironclad}}'' has what is arguably a symbolic example. The film begins and ends with a shot of the king standing ashore with his feet awash, which looks exactly as if he was standing ''on'' water. This fits the Medieval idea of the king being anointed by God and thus granted mystical abilities of a saint.

* Water-walking in ''{{Achaea}}'' is accomplished using enchanted footwear or potions of levitation, which allow easy, quick movement just as on land. Without it, swimming is slow, hard work (for those who can't, for example, [[{{Animorphism}} turn into a turtle...]])

* In the original ''{{Creatures}}'', the title creatures can actually walk around on the ocean's surface. However, one needs to [[GoodBadBugs abuse certain objects]] to get them onto the sea in the first place, so it's rather obvious that walking on water was due to programming limitations and not deliberately invoked.

* Parodied in ''SaturdayMorningBreakfastCereal'' where Jesus thunder is stolen because the lake happens to be ''frozen'' at the moment. He can still walk on water otherwise, but since he cant show it off at the moment, the Apostles are not impressed. He then attempts to levitate only to realize his sandals have frozen to the ice.

* An episode of ''[[WesternAnimation/DragonsRidersOfBerk Dragons: Race to the Edge]]'' showed a subspecies of a flightless dragon called a Speed Stinger that had developed a membrane on its feet, which, when combined with its signature SuperSpeed, allows it to run on water.

* Starts off ''ComicBook/TheBoys'': A-Ttrain (a speedster) runs after another speedster, catching up with him in the middle of the Atlantic and keeps going until they're in Scotland. This being a deconstruction, the super doesn't have RequiredSecondaryPowers like increased reflexes, and smashes the other guy into a wall without seeing that he'd splattered a girl who was in the way. His uncaring attitude is the first step on Hughie joining The Boys ([[spoiler:and eventually killing A-Train, not only for killing his first girlfriend but raping his second one]]).

* Donkey from ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' can do the "running" variant. If you roll off an edge you get to jump on the air; and if you do the air jump thing in the edge between air and water, you get to jump again. Rinse and repeat. Kiddy from the third game could do the same (that is, the orangutans do it, the monkeys don't).

* Seaweed from ''Webcomic/{{Gloomverse}}'', as part of a magical performance.



* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/IAmWeasel''. At the end of an episode where everyone had been shunning Weasal only for him to prove himself a hero afterwards, he walks out onto a lake. The crowd rushes out after him and sink right down, prompting Weasal to quip, "You know, I really need to teach these guys to stick to the shallow part."

* In the original short of ''Filn/TheWizardOfSpeedAndTime'', a long-range shot of the massive fantail of water kicked up by the Wizard as he runs across a lake is visible. In the feature film's version of the same sequence, he runs onto the Pacific Ocean to begin his round-the-world dash with the Olympic Torch.

* A newly-arisen ghost in ''Literature/DirkGentlysHolisticDetectiveAgency'' tries to shake himself out of his postmortem depression by testing out what he can do in his newly-incorporeal state. Alas, going for a stroll on the Thames turns out to be fairly boring.
