Nitrogen was chemical element present on a number of planets.

Triton had a thin atmosphere composed of nitrogen. (PDA: The Devil Goblins from Neptune)

On Justicia, nitrogen was rendered as snow when the planet moved away from its sun. (NSA: The Monsters Inside)

The 456 thrived in an atmosphere composed of 20% nitrogen (in addition to other elements). (TW: Children of Earth: Day Two)

There is more information available on this subject at Nitrogen on the English-language Wikipedia.

Nitrogen (pronounced /nī'trə-jən/) is a chemical element that has the symbol "N", atomic number 7 and atomic weight 14.007. Elemental nitrogen is a colorless, odorless, tasteless and mostly inert diatomic gas at standard conditions, constituting 78.1% by volume of Earth's atmosphere.

Many industrially important compounds, such as ammonia, nitric acid, organic nitrates (propellants and explosives), and cyanides, contain nitrogen. The very strong bond in elemental nitrogen dominates nitrogen chemistry, causing difficulty for both organisms and industry in converting the N2 into useful compounds, and releasing large amounts of energy when these compounds burn or decay back into nitrogen gas.

Nitrogen occurs in all living organisms — it is a constituent element of amino acids and thus of proteins, and of nucleic acids (DNA and RNA); resides in the chemical structure of almost all neurotransmitters; and is a defining component of alkaloids, biological molecules produced by many organisms.

Almost all known planets in the Halo Universe possess nitrogen-rich atmospheres, ranging from Earth to Sanghelios[1], presumably neccessary for the formation of DNA and therefore sentient and non-sentient life.

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

Nitrogen (N)[1] was an elemental gas that commonly composed the atmospheres of many planets and moons, including, but not limited to, Echnos and Tyed Kant.

Although essential for life for many beings such as Humans, it was harmful to breathe for some species. Liquid nitrogen was very cold.

Imperial Star Destroyers flooded key equipment compartments with a nitrogen-carbon dioxide mix before going into battle.[1]
