** This is PlayedForLaughs for all its worth in ''WebAnimation/RWBYChibi'' as Neptune is shown wearing various swimming gear when taking a bath and allowing Jaune to drown in the pool when he's made a lifeguard (don't worry, Jaune gets better.)

-->'''Trisha:''' ''(screaming, kicking, and trying to open the emergency exit door)'' I need to be on land! I need to be on land!
-->'''Brittnay:''' ''(holding Trisha back)'' Trisha! We're flying over the ocean!
-->'''Mackenzie:''' ''(also holding Trisha back)'' Trisha 2!! ''Help us!''
-->'''[[LawfulStupid Trisha 2]]:''' But the seatbelt sign is on!


* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': During the tournament matches, Team SSSN is pitted against Team NDGO. The battle arena is given two sets of terrain, desert and water. While Team NDGO is delighted to have a desert terrain, having come from a desert homeland, Team SSSN has a very problem. Their team member, Neptune, has a crippling fear of water. As soon as he sees the water appear behind him, he races forward and climbs one of the cliffs on Team NDGO's side. Although he claims it's a tactic the opponents would never expect (they admit that's true), it's obvious to the girls why Neptune's doing it. At the end of the match, the girls take up position in the water in the belief that Neptune won't be able to touch them. Unfortunately for them, Neptune's weapon is electricity-based. When he reluctantly gets close enough to dip his trident into the water, it's game over for Team NDGO.

** Sarge is also afraid of heights. He has a FreudianExcuse;
-->'''Simmons:''' You have a fear of heights? Didn't you used to jump out of ships in high orbit during the war? \\
'''Sarge:''' And how do you think I developed that fear? That shit was crazy.


* In ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', one of [[TheJuggernaut The Meta's]] only weaknesses is that he's afraid of heights. His death is appropriately ironic; he's knocked off a cliff into the ocean.

* At the height of the Napster controversy, the folks at Camp Chaos created a series of flash animations featuring Metallica's Lars Ulrich and James Hetfield. James, aside from being a caveman mentally, was also terrified of fire. So naturally, in their ''Celebrity "Series/WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire"'' parody, he gets lit on fire.
