* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** In the series' backstory during the [[SlaveRevolt Alessian Revolt]] against the [[AbusivePrecursors Ayleids]], the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Divines]] themselves sent aid to the revolting Nedic people under Queen Alessia. In particular was the [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Aedric demi-god]] Morihaus, the "[[ALoadOfBull winged man-bull]]". Going with his "man-bull" theme, his favored style of combat was to gore enemies with his horns. When Alessia's [[EternalHero divine champion]], Pelinal Whitestrake, was cut to pieces after his battle with Umaril the Unfeathered (BigBad leader of the Ayleids), Morihaus scared off the remaining Ayleids when he "shook the whole of the tower with mighty bashing from his horns." The tower in question was the ''massive'' White-Gold tower that now stands as the Imperial Palace in the Imperial City.
** [[ALoadOfBull Minotaurs]], said to be the result of Alessia's coupling with Morihaus as part of their DivineDate, are massive half-man half-bulls. They are known to use their horns in combat, which are hard and sharp enough to rend even the toughest armor.

* Subverted with narwhal tusks. Although presumed for decades to have served as a weapon in defense or male/male competition, it's now known that their outer surface is riddled with sensory receptors that detect water pressure, temperature, salinity and particulate levels. What were ''thought'' to be "duels" between male rivals, clashing their tusks against one another, are now thought to be communication as to what sort of water conditions each male has been swimming through.

** ''Pokemon Black/White'' introduces the Legendary Trio of Terrakion, Cobalion, and Virizion whom all know the SignatureMove of "Sacred Sword". True to their [[ShoutOut Musketeer theming]], the attack is basically them using their own horns as a sword. The Anime takes it even further and shows that the move causes a horn made of energy to emerge from their heads a la some sort of natural beam sword.
*** Keldeo (the honorary "fourth member" of the trio) can also learn Sacred Sword as well as its own signture move "Secret Sword". It should be noted that learning Secret Sword causes Keldeo to change form including its horn growing larger and more powerful.

* In the third ''OnePiece'' movie, the villain goes on OneWingedAngel after eating some magical golden horns and transform in a giant furry behemoth with large golden antlers. Not only he's strong enough to cause an earthquake when he headbutts the ground, but he can also [[KillItWithFire heat them up]]. In the main series, Chopper's strongest form is the "Horn Point".

** Subversion: Duval's pet Bison, Motobaro tries to ram Luffy as Duval gushes about how his "Heart-Crushing Horns" are unstoppable and capable of bringing down walls and dams.... then when the two impact, we clearly see that Motobaro's horns are far above Luffy. Chopper even lampshades this.

* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', we have the Arrancar Yylford, whose OneWingedAngel form, [[ALoadOfBull Del Toro]] mainly relies on extensible, sharp horns, which he use to gore Ururu and Renji. A "beam-shooting" example would be [[HairTriggerTemper Apacci's]] basic form, as she cast the Cero ray from the horn on her mask.

The Rahi Nui, at its first appearance, was in fact defeated by [[DeadlyDodging letting it drive its horns into a rock wall with so much force, it couldn't pull itself out]]. Strangely, the actual Kane-Ra toy is an aversion, as it has a jaw-snapping attack, and the horns are just decoration.
