* Creator/CJCherryh's ''Finisterra'' series of novels has creatures called nighthorses that could be easily mistaken for horses, except that they are telepathic foul-tempered caich, despite their name and appearance, carnivores whose group behavior is based on being pack hunters. In contrast to herbivorous horses' tendency to form groups for protection, nighthorses formed groups for attacks. The implications of this are predators.shown in the stories in such a way that it becomes quite plain that nighthorses are not just differently colored horses.

* TabletopGame/Warhammer40000}: The Space Wolves often ride Fenrisian wolves into battle. Now obviously, a seven-foot-tall {{Powere Armor}}ed bearded space Viking would be a bit much for a wolf, but fortunately Fenrisian wolves can grow to the size of a Rhino. No, not the African ungulate, [[CanisMajor that's how big the standard wolf is]]. We're talking Rhino the AwesomePersonnelCarrier, which can carry a dozen Space Marines.

* The various world-settings in the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series use a type of giant bird called a Chocobo as a riding mount. Some variations of them can fly (usually black), though most of them are ground-based. Travelling on one moves faster than just walking, and usually [[EncounterRepellant avoids running into random encounters]] while riding one. ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' also includes chocobos that can run over water, oceans, and mountains, but you have to breed them first. ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' has chocobos with similar capabilities, the catch being that it's actually all just one chocobo that you can keep upgrading throughout the game. You can eventually have it gain all of the capabilities of the gold chocobo from ''VII'' and if you boost it to the max, it can even fly

Of the types of creatures available, large flightless birds are probably the single most-common type of horse-replacement. Two-legged fast dinosaurs come up frequently. To replace the larger draft animals, vaguely ox-like creatures and large lizards seem to be popular, and some may be MixAndMatchCritters.

* ''ComicBook/WhiteSand'' has tonks, horse-like creatures made of sandstone-esque substance, with segmented body, feet rather than hooves, rhino horns and armadillo-like tails. They're used as mounts ubiquitously in desert parts of Dayside, but their skin melts on contact with water, so they're absent in Lossand oasis.
