* Peregrine in the ''WildCards'' series while often called an Ace is actually a Joker-Ace, i.e. someone who was both physically mutated by the disease and gained superpowers as a result. Her wings would allow her limited flight, or at least gliding, but she actually uses specialized telekinesis to fly. She avoids the stigma of Jokerhood because her wings are pretty, unlike most Joker mutations.

* PlaneScapeTorment has an NPC ally named Fall-From-Grace, who is a puritan succubus priestess (ItMakesSenseInContext) with large bat wings she never uses. Odd, since as a DungeonsAndDragons setting, Planescape succubi could always fly. There are also EliteMook devils called Abishai that don't use their obvious wings, which (again) could happen in the table top game.
** Justified in the case of Trias, an angel whose wings were burned off by fiends [[spoiler: or so he says]].

* In ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'', one of the types of CosmeticAward items you can get as random drops is wings. They don't let you fly or glide but hey, they [[RuleOfCool look cool]].

* ''Webcomic/{{Subnormality}}'': The Sphinx has wings, but walks everywhere. Justified in this case as she have to file flight plan each time, and she didn't want to file each time she went somewhere.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Starbound}}'': Stargazers - Avian priests - wear ceremonial wings (which you may obtain for yourself) which are rigid and do nothing. There's also a rare set of articulated wearable wings you can find, which flap impressively when you jump and run... but do not let you actually fly.
** Averted with some fan-made mod races. The Wasp Hives can fly and glide in brief bursts, while the Avali's wings reduce their falling speed enough that they can fall from any height without taking damage.
