* ''Film/{{Gladiator}}'' opens with a BigBadassBattleSequence in which General Maximus leads Roman cavalry into action against a Germanic tribe, [[HollywoodTactics even though Roman tactics were actually centered around their infantry]]. It does however enable to make our hero to look more BadAss than if he were leading the action from behind a shield wall. In his first gladiatorial combat in the Collesseum, Maximus ends up on a WhiteStallion taken from the charioteers he's fighting.

* The deghans in the ''FarsalaTrilogy'' clearly ''think'' they're this, and in the beginning they are - it's mentioned that Farsala is one of the few countries to have an effective cavalry. However, they are easily defeated by [[TheEmpire Hrum]] foot soldiers.
