Combine a RearingHorse, a BigDamnHeroes rescue, some CoolGuns or a sword, a pinch of DramaticWind, and you get Horseback Heroism. The sight of "Lightning" [[RearingHorse rising up on his hind legs]] while [[DramaticThunder thunder cracks]] in the background is enough to tell everyone involved that the Day is well and truly Saved. And your potential LoveInterest... well, let's just say there's nothing "potential" about that any more...

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'', most characters with ability-based charmsets like the Solars and Sidereals can do this to one extent or another. The Solars invoke the trope the hardest though, particularly [[RidingIntoTheSunset Hero Rides Away]].

This is an old trope, though this hero is by no means [[{{Pun}} riding a]] {{dead horse|Trope}} when he uses it to rescue friends or lovers. It's just [[RuleOfCool that awesome]].
