Added DiffLines:

** The planet Tatooine has several native species seen being used as mounts or for haulage: Tusken Raiders favour the bantha, [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs dewbacks]] were used by Imperial Sandtroopers, and ronto are used by Jawas, although it has been suggested that ronto were imported from Nubia rather than native to Tatooine.

* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'':
** The Kroot (descended from avians) use a degenerate member of their species known as Knarloc as ill-tempered baggage carriers that can easily defend themselves. The Greater Knarloc is used exactly the way a creature looking like a hybrid between a terror bird and a TRex should be used. Krootoxen are used similarly, but despite the name look more like flatbeaked gorillas that can punch through tanks.
** Exodite Eldar ride into battle on megasaurs.

** Every race but the humans have their own kind of non-horse mount (except maybe the Forsaken, who use undead horses), and new factions have frequently introduced new types, not to mention all the flying mounts. Interestingly enough though, all class-specific mounts are horses or rather look like horses but largely have otherworldly origins, being more explicitly summoned by respective spells (Dread Knight mounts are undead, Paladin mounts divine spirits, Warlock mounts demonic).

* ''ComicBook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck'': Scrooge [=McDuck=] has established his {{Badass}} credentials several times with these. When he was left for dead in the South African Savanna, he went berserk against all the animals trying to eat or kill him and cowed a ''lion'' into becoming his steed. In Australia, he encountered an Emu and used it instead, at least until it ran off from an approaching flood. In the Klondike, he has used moose for transport on more than one occasion. In ''Hearts of the Yukon'', we also briefly see a rider arrive into Dawson City on a bear--but even he's scared of [[TheAce Samuel Steele]].

* Strangely, the Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Doduo and Dodrio -- based off of ostriches -- can learn Fly in the games. The anime makes a clever justification when Falkner's Dodrio makes a leap that makes it look like it ''is'' flying, though the birds are usually ridden as land mounts when seen.

Though ''WebComic/AwkwardZombie'' suggests [[HeliCritter a different way]] that [[http://www.awkwardzombie.com/index.php?comic=030711 they could fly]].



** [[http://awkwardzombie.com/index.php?page=0&comic=030711 Mystery of flight solved for Doduo!]]
* There are undead units in ''BattleForWesnoth'' which ride skeletal 'chocobones' which are a clear parody of the Final Fantasy birds.
