** Link is at it again in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''. Besides the usual horses, there's Stalhorses, (skeletal undead horses) deer, desert-going seals chariot-style, [[BuffySpeak mythical mountain king ghost deer]], one of his [[BirdPeople Rito allies]], and ''{{bears|are bad news}}''. And in some parts of Hyrule, ''Bokoblins'' ride bears, turning them into full-blown DemonicSpiders.

* In the early series of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}, it was rather common to see Dodrio (a three-headed ostrich-like bird) used as a mount.

* In the last book of the ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' the K'Chain Che'Malle -- bipedal, sentient HiveMind-inclined dinosaurs -- serve as mounts for their human allies. They are even capable of changing their physique to better accomodate their human riders, e.g. by creating a saddle out of their own flesh.

* Aahz of the ''Literature/MythAdventures'' series is too squat-bodied to comfortably ride a horse, so when he participates in a ritual hunt as security, he's given a hiphippohippus (similar to a skinny rhino) as a mount. The rider for one of the opposing teams in Jahk's Big Game was mounted on an armored hump-shaped creature with thousands of very tiny legs underneath, and no evident head or sense organs.

* Aahz of the ''Literature/MythAdventures'' series is too squat-bodied In ''Blood River Down'' by Lionel Fenn, lorra are oversized goats with powerful legs, massive horns, and extremely thick, soft fur. Any person who manages to comfortably befriend and ride a horse, so when he participates in a ritual hunt as security, he's given a hiphippohippus (similar to a skinny rhino) as a mount. The rider for one of them is automatically considered a hero or hero-to-be. Although they can't speak, Red the opposing teams in Jahk's Big Game was mounted on an armored hump-shaped creature with thousands of very tiny legs underneath, and no evident head or sense organs.lorra understands human speech well enough that he won't respond to orders unless they include the word "please".

* ''Literature/RiverOfTeeth'': Ever after the Great Louisiana Hippo Rush, hippopotamuses have become the mounts of choice in the area. They're better suited to the newly formed environment and can go where horses would simply sink or break their legs. Everyone has adapted, including inn, which now have water holes to house the hippos of their patrons.

* ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' has a couple of really exotic options for infantry. The first is the Branth, a large flying reptile with toxic saliva that it can spit at its enemies. They're capable of carrying a rider and gear while flying, but due to their sensitive immune system they invariably die of infection if taken off their homeworld. Another exotic critter is the massive hipposaur, a semi-aquatic herbivore that resembles a cross between a hippopotamus and a sauropod dinosaur. At 30 tons, it's more than capable of carrying an entire infantry squad on its back or even functioning as a mobile artillery platform. It's also strong enough that its physical attacks can smash battlemech armor!

* In ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'', mounted infantry in the Lyran Commonwealth sometimes ride Coventry kangaroos, which are large, genetically modified red kangaroos that were specially designed to be riding beasts.



** Emus have been used as mounts in much the same manner.

** Emus have been used as mounts in much the same manner.manner, though their much smaller size makes them unsuited for carrying an average adult human.


Added DiffLines:

* The ''Literature/{{Spellsinger}}'' novels feature riding snakes: huge serpents capable of carrying a whole party on their back at once. They're neither venomous nor constrictors: they're so large they simply eat their prey live. Fortunately, they seem to have been bred or trained not to consider sentient mammals as prey and restrict themselves to non-sentient reptiles.
