* ''{{BIONICLE}}'''s Kane-Ra bull and the MixAndMatchCritter Rahi Nui, which has the head of a Kane-Ra, usually use this strategy. 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.

*** In the TabletopGame/DarkSun setting the cattle-like Carru can slash at opponents with their long horns. Male Syrga (pig-like quadrupeds) have horns which they can use to gore an opponent for extra damage.
*** The ''TabletopGame/{{Mystara}}'' setting has a few of these: actaeon (does 2-16 HitPoints of damage by goring opponents with its antlers), horned chameleon (horn do 1-6 HitPoints), some armored herbivorous dinosaurs (e.g. the triceratops does 5-40 HitPoints), gargoyles (1d4 HitPoints horn damage), gorgons (2-12 HitPoints with horns), unicorn (horn does 1-8 HitPoints) and narwhale (horn inflicts 1d4 HitPoints).
*** TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}} 2nd Edition ''Realm of Terror'' boxed set. When a {{PC}} performs extremely evil acts they have to make a Powers Check or suffer a punishment. One possible punishment is growing small horns on the {{PC}}'s head that can do 1-2 HitPoints of damage by butting an opponent.
