* In ''TabletopGame/{{Spelljammer}}'', ships of the Aarakocra ([[PettingZooPeople bird folk]]) are made faster than normal, but there's a good reason why the rest of Wildspace races don't form a line to buy them at three times the stated price... or even seek passage more than once. What with feathered sails and the atmosphere perpetually contaminated with down feathers.

* In an interesting case, the powers of the psychic Zap in, well, ''Webcomic/{{Zap}}'' often manifest as glowing wing-like shapes. During an epic showdown, a carnival case full of stuffed animals is destroyed, filling the air with golden feathers. When Zap's power manifests, the feathers in the air make it look like this trope is happening.

* While ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' character Jin Kazama does not usually leave a trail of feathers wherever he goes in his Devil Jin form, he is not excempt from this trope: in his Tekken 4 ending, Devil Jin escapes Honmaru through the roof, leaving behind a rain of black feathers (among them a single white one, symbolizing the good in him). The same scene is used as the very first visual of the Tekken 5 opening.

** This is also carried over into ''VideoGame/{{Dissidia}}''. Play with the extended battle openings on, and both Sephiroth and Ultimecia will enter with falling black feathers fluttering around them. Ultimecia actually takes this a step further by molting constantly all throughout any battle with her. If you don't know what's going on, the first time you see it you may be prompted to think your PSP is developing dead pixels.

* ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'' subjects Pit to this trope. Every time he flies, he seems to lose a ton of feathers. But he's using a magic one (the move was based off a powerup from ''VideoGame/KidIcarus'') so that's okay.

Added DiffLines:

* The titular Gunvolt of the ''VideoGame/AzureStrikerGunvolt'' series constantly sheds electricity in the form of azure feathers. When he rescues Joule at the start of the first game, she first mistakes him for an angel due to this effect.


* [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in one scene in the ''[[ForgottenRealms Shadow of the Avatar]]'' trilogy, where Storm Silverhand trails a shapeshifter who's taken falcon form right then...and who's explicitly described as both flying and shedding feathers faster than a real falcon would be capable of or could possibly afford, respectively.

* {{Egregious}} example in ''Anime/MacrossZero'': as Shin's damaged VF-0 [[spoiler:rises from the ocean, held aloft by the power of the Bird Man, it sheds a monumental trail of feathers before being whisked away in a beam of light]]. Where the feathers came from is anyone's guess, as the VF-0 is a TransformingMecha that closely resembles an F-14 Tomcat and the Bird Man is [[NeglectfulPrecursor a Protoculture construct]] covered in shell-like armor. It comes from tribal magic, Gaia spirit and pure force of symbolism.

* ''VideoGame/TheLastGuardian''[='=]s Trico usually averts this trope, save for an entirely justified case near the end in which [[spoiler:his getting mauled by others of his kind has him trailing feathers as he flies]].
