- The original 1st Edition Fiend Folio had the Smoke Mephit. It had a breath weapon, a sooty ball of smoke that inflicted minor damage and caused blindness for a couple of combat rounds.
- The 1st Edition Manual of the Planes (1987) mentioned the Para-Elemental plane of Smoke. It had para-elemental monsters made of smoke. They looked misty or sooty, like air elementals mixed with dust.
- The paraelemental plane of smoke also appears in the 2nd edition D&D setting Planescape.
- This was Smoke from Mortal Kombat's main ability before he was converted into a cyborg, although it seems limited to producing a small cloud of it around himself. After being further "upgraded" by Noob Saidbot he seems to have become literally made of smoke.
