Strife. The formula so far seems to be that each Horseman stars in a game of their own, each happening concurrently with the others, before they'll presumably team up.
** ''VideoGame/{{Darksiders}} I'' had ''someone'' trigger the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Apocalypse]] early, and War is blamed for it. Now he's incredibly pissed-off and hunting for those responsible.
** ''VideoGame/DarksidersII'' has you playing as features Death during trying to fix War's supposed crime and resurrect humanity.
** In ''VideoGame/DarksidersIII'', Fury is dispatched to kill
the events of the first game.SevenDeadlySins running amok.

* Similarly, in the original ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}}'' we had Apocalypse recruiting and then commanding the original Horsemen: Kieros/War, Autumn/Famine, Plague/Pestilence, and Angel-then-Archangel/Death.

* Pestilence appears during an episode of ''{{Squidbillies}}'', to usher in the end of days. Amusingly, the Cuyler's aren't impressed by him, and actually mock him.

* Wrestling/{{WCW}}, and the Wrestling/{{N|ationalWrestlingAlliance}}WA before it, had a long-running {{heel}} stable called The Four Horsemen. It was led in all its incarnations by Wrestling/RicFlair, although the name was coined by Wrestling/ArnAnderson. Of course, they were not actually depicted as the Horsemen Of The Apocalypse; the name was simply a symbolic reference. Their gang sign was holding up a hand, all four fingers on each spread apart (although, strangely, sometimes they'd hold up ''both'' hands in the 4-finger sign; with all four doing this, that of course signifies the coming of the 32 Horsemen of the Apocalypse).

** A dimension-hopping arc in ''ComicBook/CableAndDeadpool'' included a BadFuture where Archangel was Death, Spider-Man was Pestilence, Blob was Famine, and Cable himself was War.

* In ''XMenEvolution'' Season 4 [[spoiler: Charles Xavier (Death), Storm (Famine), Magneto (War) and Mystique (Pestilence)]] are taken complete control of by Apocalypse to be his "four horsemen" guarding his nodes of power across the earth so he can enact the grand finale battle for the series. And turn everyone into mutants. Each of the controlled mutants representing one of the four horsemen of Apocalypse. Calling it the Apocalypse makes it sound like it's a time and not a person. Unfortunately Rogue was stopped from touching Apocalypse or things would have gone very differently (or Rogue would have been turning everyone into mutants instead).

* While not the traditional Horsemen, ''{{Lufia}}'s'' four Sinistrals are clearly inspired by them, as they represent Chaos, Terror, Destruction and Death. [[spoiler:One of them is in your party.]]

* The game ''VideoGame/{{Afterlife}}'', a sim game by LucasArts, had "the Four Surfers of the Apocalypso". Yeah. They would ride waves of magma to destroy your simulated heaven and hell if you stay in debt for too long. Their descriptions are SurferDude versions of their Biblical introductions.
