* ''Comicbook/{{Aquaman}}'' and ''{{Sub-Mariner}}'' frequently fall victim to this. Comics reviewer Paul O'Brien has a regular rant about this, and praises "[[http://ifdestroyed.blogspot.com/2009/09/x-axis-27-september-2009.html the remarkably few artists who'[ve] figured out that Atlanteans don't walk, they swim, and whose Atlantis is interesting to look at as a result]]".

** There is also no reason why you shouldn't be able to use original X-Com gear on the surface (e.g. lasers, plasma, power suits), instead, you use ''harpoons'' (even a plain Earth gun would've worked better).

* In "The Magic Voyage of Sinbad" the title character throws himself into the sea to appease Neptune. On MST3K they even ask "Why isn't it wet underwater?" and when a pigeon with a message reaches him in Neptune's kingdom they ask "How does ''that'' work?"

* A mermaid learns the difference between water and air in the ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGummiBears'' episode "Water Way To Go": She tries to return Gusto's forgotten sketch pad to him, but, of course, it's waterlogged and ruined by the time she catches up to him -- unfortunate, but an understandable mistake for someone who has no experience with paper and ink from a water-free environment.

** When Ariel shows Flounder the shipwreck at the beginning of the original movie, Flounder tries to object going in, saying it looks damp in there. It would look damp, seeing how it's UNDERWATER.
** A debatable example would be when Price Eric throws the harpoon underwater, striking Ursula hard enough to draw blood, despite actually throwing it underwater, and being a considerable distance away from her in the first place.
