Simply put, fiction where characters can pass between planet and space without having to contend with a burning hot atmosphere. Related to Batman Can Breathe in Space.

  • A stock ending for Sonic the Hedgehog games is for the character to fall to the planet after blowing up a space station. Sonic 2 shows Sonic actually fly to space on the outside of a ship. Sonic Adventure 2 partly corrects the astronomy by making it possible for characters to die if they hit the atmosphere (Eggman even uses it in an attempt to eliminate Sonic). However, the atmosphere's height varies according to how high the platforms above it are.
