Added DiffLines:

** Knuckles the Echidna [[NotQuiteFlight can glide]] though the air thanks to his dreads/quills absorbing air currents, though Knuckles will forced to float down if there’s no wind/fan. Though at other times e.g anime Knuckles [[FridgeLogic is shown to be able to fly upwards and stay in the air for increasingly long periods]].


* While some characters have a DoubleJump or use their abilities in a way to stay in the air longer than usual (e.g [=CP9=], Sanji, Robin, Franky, Smoker, Domflamingo, Gear 4 Luffy, Big Mom with her Homies, Germa 66 Charlotte Yuen and other mooks) true flight is notably rare in ''Manga/OnePiece''. Only four Devil Fruit Users (out of LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters) have been shown to have it thus far: "Peregrine Falcon" Pell, Lafitte (one panel in Impel Down shows him with wings while landing), Marco "the Phoenix", Kaido who has a Chinese flying Dragon Devil Fruit and King one of Kaido’s CoDragons who has a Pteranodon Devil Fruit.

* Some Bloodliners in ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' are able to use their abilities to fly. A [[BlowYouAway Gust Technique]] Bloodliner propels herself in the air aided by the wings of her Sky Trainer suit, while a [[PlayingWithFire Flamethrower]] Bloodliner can shoot fire from his hands and feet like rocket boosters.


** In the 90s anime, Sailor Venus (and apparently Artemis as well) performs the [[JumpPhysics jumping]] version of this in the episode after her debut, also making this a rare non-video game example of that trope. To make her escape from the other Sailor Guardians after introducing herself, she improbably jumps from building to building. [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands This ability was never displayed again]] [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment by either her or any other character and nobody comments on it]].

Millennia of evolution into highly intelligent tool-users and a century of true aviation later, and the appeal still remains -- the desire to take to the skies unaided is so basic it's [[DreamsOfFlying an expected theme in nighttime dreaming]].

Much like starburst, flight has quite the rainbow of flavors; to accomplish this feat, characters might ...
* ... have [[WingedHumanoid functional wings]] like a bird, bat, or insect.
* ... produce mechanical thrust like a [[JetPack rocket or jet engine]].
* ... lift themselves or [[NotQuiteFlight a platform]] they're standing on [[MindOverMatter telekinetically]].
* ... render themselves weightless to defy gravity.
* ... let the air move ''them'' by [[BlowYouAway riding strong winds]] they may or may not have conjured.
* ... use magic or some technological equivalent.
* ... use buoyancy and fill themselves with air like a blimp or balloon.
* ... sometimes jump, [[JumpPhysics really, really far.]]
* ... just do it, because [[AWizardDidIt screw explanations.]]

* ''Anime/GoldenBat'' is a superhero who flies faster than a plane. Originally appearing in Kamishibai paper theater in 1930 (see below), he had an anime adaptation in 1966.
* One way to recognize a powerful character in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' is how easily they can get off the ground, and how long they stay off. The fighting tends to get serious when one of the participants takes to the air.

At the beginning of ''Dragon Ball'', very few characters could actually fly unaided; it was reserved for characters who had to appear impressively powerful such as Master Crane, Tenshinhan and Chaotzu in their first appearance as antagonists. Other characters used vehicles, or in Goku's case his flying cloud, Kintoun/Nimbus, or NotQuiteFlight like Mercenary Tao riding on thrown pillars. It was not until ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' was in full swing that characters (after months of the same training as Goku at Kami-sama's place) learnt how to use their Ki to fly, and almost every powerful character introduced after this point has the ability. The Crane School technique is known as "Bukujutsu/Sky Dancing".\\

There were moments in the original ''Dragon Ball'' where characters had to make do and use whatever methods they could to get themselves off the ground. One of the more iconic examples is Goku using a [[KamehameHadoken Kamehameha]] to propel himself upwards and straight through the torso of the airborn Evil King Piccolo. A slightly more comedic example is Goku shooting a Kamehameha with ''his feet'' so that he could have his hands free while airborn. An even more comedic example would be Kuririn/Krillin somehow ''inflating his body like a balloon'' to keep himself in the air after he is knocked out of the fighting arena. On other occasions, Goku has flown by [[HeliCritter spinning his tail like a helicopter]] and stopped a fall by exhaling with great force. These one-off joke powers are never seen after their debut.\\
It's even {{Lampshaded}} when Goten learns to go [[SuperMode Super Saiyan]] before learning to fly; Gohan compares it to 'Learning to run before you learn to crawl." He suggests Goten be called A Super Pedestrian.

* Several characters in ''Manga/SoulEater'' can fly, by way of brooms, familiars, hover boards, and adapted Weapons. The only two shown to do so under their own power are Asura and Shinigami. Shinigami's ability to fly suggests that Kid will eventually learn how to as well.

The [[Anime/FreshPrettyCure Agents from Labyrinth]], and [[Anime/SuitePrettyCure Siren and Trio the Minor]] are exceptions. [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCureSplashStar Cure Bloom/Bright and Cure Egret/Windy]] are the only Precures with this ability, at least naturally.

* This is Silver Crow's primary power in ''LightNovel/AccelWorld'', and apparently he is the first avatar to obtain this power, though not the first to attempt to gain it.
* In the old ''Manga/SailorMoon'' anime this is almost a villain-only ability, and the same can be said for the first part of the manga-at least until Sailor Venus enters the frame. She has apparently taught the ability to the others off-page, as Sailor Jupiter is seen flying in the Black Moon arc and everyone can do it by the Infinity arc.

* One of the abilities granted by the Kaleido Sticks ''Franchise/SailorMoon'': Oddly this seems to be a very rare ability in ''Manga/FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya'', though [[BrokenBird Miyu]] shows that it requires at least some input from the wielder as well. As this franchise with [[PowerFloats floating]] being much more common (to the [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight original source]] Caster is also point everybody appears to be able to do it, even without much prior training or explicitly having it as part of their power set). Of course this could be because, since the mangaka didn't start giving flight as a power until later in the series, she needed ''something'' to take its place. While the villains all had the common ability to teleport, the heroines were otherwise not very mobile.
** Sailor Uranus appears to be the first character to be
capable of flight.
* This is Silver Crow's primary power
flight, but even then it's pretty downplayed in ''LightNovel/AccelWorld'', that she seems to need trees (or anything solid) as jumping off points and apparently he is the first avatar to obtain this power, though not the first to attempt to gain it.
* In the old ''Manga/SailorMoon'' anime this is almost a villain-only ability, and the same can be said for the first part of the manga-at least until Sailor Venus enters the frame. She has apparently taught the ability to the others off-page, as Sailor Jupiter is
never seen flying in the Black Moon arc traditional sense. This limits how high she can go, which makes it incredibly inconvenient if you're trying to give your princess the slip. Since she has [[BlowYouAway wind]] powers, she may just be unconventionally using it to make her somewhat capable of flight.
** Princess Kakyuu is able to sprout wings
and everyone fly in the traditional sense, [[BatmanCanBreatheInSpace even through the]] [[SpaceIsAir vacuum of space]] and can do it make other characters sprout wings and fly with her. Though the "space" part may be justified by the Infinity arc.setting's fantastical elements (note that the manga had more of a sci-fi angle than the anime).

** Julie Finster is a FISS -- '''F'''light, '''I'''nvulnerability, '''S'''peed, '''S'''trength. It's the most common suite of powers, and she's the 84th one. She can fly under her own power at high speeds, but despite the fact that she's very strong all around, the fact that there are 83 more people nearly exactly like her means she's treated as barely better than normal. Eventually she accepts this, and takes "84" as her superhero name.

* Get this — ''VideoGame/{{Rayman}}'' can fly by making a ''[[HelicopterHair helicopter out of his hair]]''.

* While some characters have a DoubleJump or use their abilities in a way to stay in the air longer than usual (e.g [=CP9=], Sanji, Robin, Franky, Smoker, Domflamingo, Gear 4 Luffy, Charlotte Yuen and other mooks) true flight is notably rare in ''Manga/OnePiece''.

** One of Kaido’s Smile {{Mooks}} Batman (''no [[Franchise/{{Batman}} that Batman]]'') can rather pathetically fly with his stubby wings. Patrick Redfield In ''VideoGame/OnePieceUnlimitedWorldRed'' eat the genuine Bat-Devil Fruit and can fly more spectacularly.



* Franchise/WonderWoman can fly almost as fast as Superman.

to:

* Zigzagged with Franchise/WonderWoman can like Superman Diana originally was just a InASingleBound kinda gal, but unlike Supes however flight remained absent from her powerset leading to more embarrassing modes of travel such as her infamous Invisible Jet. It wasn’t 2011 that Wonder Woman was granted the power by Hermes, “to glide air currents”.
** Interestingly Wonder Woman is still to this day frequently shown flying in jet crafts with the aerial handicapped JL members [[FridgeLogic which is confusing]]. A few writers and fans have suggested that Diana may be unable to
fly almost as fast as Superman.indefinitely like the Kyrptonains or at least unable to fly where there is no air currents, which is more confusing because some comics show her flying in the vacuum of space.



* ComicBook/KittyPryde of the ''Comicbook/XMen'' can, while insubstantial, walk on air as if traversing an invisible staircase.
* Also from Marvel, ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor'' can fly by throwing his mighty hammer, {{Mjolnir}}, and simply not letting go. At least originally; modern writers have apparently decided this was too silly. When Thor has to remain stationary in midair, his preferred method is spinning his hammer around his head and hover like a helicopter.

to:

* ComicBook/KittyPryde Those wear PoweredArmour e.g ComicBook/IronMan, ComicBook/WarMachine, ComicBook/DoctorDoom and ComicBook/LexLuthor can fly at great speeds with tech.

** ComicBook/{{Magneto}} and his daughter ComicBook/{{Polaris}} using MagnetismManipulation to effect their own polarity.

-->I rocketed through the air like a human bullet, falling in a parabolic arc to the center of the bay. Unfortunately for me, I didn't know how to swim. With how fast I was going, I was probably going to hit the bottom of the bay and drown in its polluted waters. I closed my eyes, bracing for the inevitable impact...\\
...it didn't come. A few seconds passed as I realized that I had stopped moving, then I warily opened my eyes. I was hovering a few feet over the bay, horizontal to the water. A large wave crashed down, lightly spraying my face with seawater. Steadily, I began to right myself until I was floating upright, my toes just above the water.\\
"Holy shit," I muttered. "I can fly."

The air friction formed a corona of fire around her as she streaked invisibly through the skies. She ignored it.\\
Supergirl burst out of the ionosphere, vibrating at a certain frequency, still accelerating. An IFF device in her belt identified her to American and Russian radar trackers as the Girl of Steel, not an ICBM. They only registered her for a few seconds, anyway.

At the beginning of ''Dragon Ball'', very few characters could actually fly unaided; it was reserved for characters who had to appear impressively powerful such as Tenshinhan/Tien and Chaotzu in their first appearance as antagonists. Other characters used vehicles, or in Goku's case his flying cloud, Kintoun/Nimbus, or NotQuiteFlight like Mercenary Tao riding on thrown pillars. It was not until ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' was in full swing that characters (after months of the same training as Goku at Kami-sama's place) learnt how to use their Ki to fly, and almost every powerful character introduced after this point has the ability. The technique is known as "Bukujutsu/Sky Dancing".\\
