* There's a number of Cool Horses in ''Literature/RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms'' the most well known being Red Hare who was capable of running a thousand leagues in a day and wouldn't let anyone ride him until Lu Bu and then Guan Yu proved themselves worthy.
** He and others also appear in the VideoGame/DynastyWarriors series and is the fastest of them all and once unlocked anyone can ride him. Even [[BrattyHalfPint Xiao Qiao]]

* Kelpies from ''Literature/LoyalEnemies'' are extremely durable, fast and capable of lifting heavy weights. The best thing about them, though, is that they walk ''on'' snow, sinking in only slightly no matter how much weight is put on them, which is absolutely useful as the action of the book takes place in winter and involves copious amounts of travelling. Their secret is that they aren't actually horses, but river currents that take the form of horses on land and remain such as long as they are kept bridled.

** Death's horse [[AC:Binky]] as well as his other horses. One is a skeletal steel, and the other is made of fire) but were somewhat [[AwesomeButImpractical impractical]] due to their tendency to fall apart and ignite their bedding respectively.
** In ''Discworld/GoingPostal'', we also see Boris -- a HellishHorse without the look but with enough personality to make up for it; Boris is, literally, aimed at the destination where, upon arrival, Moist von Lipwig has to look for somewhere soft to land. Boris won't stop... Also, [[spoiler:the Golem Horses.]]

* [[HorseOfADifferentColor Boko]] from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' who carries three people at once while jumping over pits during an earthquake.



* Ixion from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' is a damn awesome unicorn, once you get past that [[HellishHorse horrific, scythe-like horn that takes up half his face. And the exposed ribs/musculature.]] And the lightning powers that mean running away would be futile since he'll just electrocute you to save time.

* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' has its share:
** Recurring summon Odin always has a horse in '''some''' way. In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII, he was mounted on a normal-looking horse. ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' upgraded it to [[Myth/NorseMythology a six-legged beast]], occasionally named Sleipnir, which has persisted through most appearances in the series. ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' has him turn '''into''' a horse to go with the game's transformation gimmick.

* The North Caucasian Myth/NartSagas have Zhaqa, a giant horse fit for a ''actual'' giant, and whose name literally means [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast "grave mound"]]. His speed and strength is only matched by the mare who bore him.

*** Haru Urara, a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]] of sorts. She never won a race, but she kept fighting on, eventually attracting a very significant fandom for her [[PluckyGirl pure pluck]]. Eventually, a [[https://vimeo.com/176459945 documentary]] about her was created, which includes some animated sequences. So now she has the distinciton of being animated ''twice''.

*** Silence Suzuka, who was so strikingly fast that he kept winning races in 1998 by immense distances, starting out in the lead with no other horse being able to overtake. Unfortunately, this did not end well; in one of those races, while in that kind of lead, the horse broke down on flat ground. A bone in a front leg shattered in several pieces, possibly "tired out" by Suzuka running far too fast far too much. For a racehorse, there was sadly [[MercyKill only one option after that]].

But first, the horse, in an act of apparent equine heroism, did not fall over; he slowed down gradually, having to use the broken leg in a lot of pain, in order to save his jockey, Yutaka Take. After this, Take drank to the point of passing out, which was not normal for him.
---> The jockey for Suzuka, Yutaka Take said in a interview once that usually it would not be unlikely for a horse to fall down after breaking its leg while running, but Suzuka did not because he did not want Take to get hurt. Suzuka was known for being a gentle and friendly horse. He also seemed to know what the jockey riding him wanted and would follow orders well.

*** El Condor Pasa, who was actually American-born, but Japanese-owned and racing first in Japan. He started with an unbeaten record of five races, before losing one (Mainichi Okan 1998) to Silence Suzuka. A rematch was highly anticipated but never happened, because Suzuka was critically injured in a race before that (note that unlike the anime, El Condor Pasa was ''not'' in Suzuka's last race). El Condor Pasa went on to win the prestigious Japan Cup before being sent to France, where he won a couple more races and came a very narrow second in L'Arc de Triomphe.

* RainbowBrite had Starlite, who was "the most magnificent horse in the universe" -- at least, according to him. Well, he could talk and fly (okay, technically he walked on rainbows) and had rainbow colored hair.
