Despite the trope title's knightly implications, this trope is actually OlderThanFeudalism, with the [[UsefulNotes/PersiansWithPistols Parthian Empire]] providing some of the first examples of a heavily-armored lancer cavalryman called a "cataphract" many centuries before the social class of knights ever existed.

* Croix from the second ''ArTonelico'' game is a knight, so his choice of this weapon is natural. It's essentially a downsized Shot Lancer (see the "Anime & Manga" section on this page for more info), though it also has thrusters on the backside on the lance head to power-up thrusts, instead of being able to launch and retract the lance head.

* The ''VideoGame/TotalWar'' series is utterly replete with lancer cavalrymen. Throughout the series, cavalry armed with lances tend to be contrasted with cavalry wielding anything else - the former are "shock cavalry" which are good on the charge but liable to be overwhelmed if they cannot quickly defeat their target before their charge bonus runs out, making them reliant on HitAndRunTactics against any sort of real melee opponents that they can't quickly rout in a single charge.

* Lances show up as available melee weapons for Battlemechs in ''TabletopGame/BattleTech''. Like most melee weapons, they're AwesomeButImpractical, dealing damage similar to a [[AnAxeToGrind hatchet]] but with a chance of a [[ArmorPiercingAttack through-armor critical]]. The rulebook they first show up in notes that despite being called lances and often being stylized to look like the medieval weapon, in function they're actually closer to being mech-sized stilettos.



* With its medieval themes, it comes as no surprise that the lance can be found in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''. It deals double damage and can be used one-handed when used on horseback, and its long length gives it reach.

* Weapon of choice for Mimbrate knights in ''Literature/TheBelgariad''. Belgarion gets to use them reasonably often in the second series, especially once he is given an appropriate war horse. Their disposable nature is played very straight - they aren't carried around when they aren't needed. Instead, characters cut new ones as needed.
