* In the anime ''Nessa no Haou Gandalla'', the BigBad has LostTechnology [[spoiler:that is controlled by music, so he kidnaps promising musicians,]] transforming his victims into winged-centaurs (or [[Creator/HRGiger Giger-esque]] monsters if they rebel). It MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext.

** [[EnthrallingSiren Sirens]], though commonly remembered as [[SirensAreMermaids mermaids]], were actually more like bird-centaurs--they had the torsos of women (usually with [[EvilIsSexy exposed breasts]]) and the bodies of [[FeatheredFiend birds]] from the waist down.

Which is also the physical description of the East-Asian [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinnara Kinnara]]; with the exception of conflicting Indian literature of demigods with the same name, like the ''Mahabharata'' which describes the Kinnaras as horse-centaurs.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'''s centaurs are a fiercely independent society of forest-dwelling stargazers, who tend to be distrustful of humans and dangerous with a bow. However, a few help out when Harry gets lost in the forest, as well as terrifying Umbridge in a most satisfying way. It's implied outside of the main books that they are a OneGenderRace, and the fact Firenze is so popular with the human girls he teaches after becoming a teacher at Hogwarts may indicate how they reproduce.
** Then again, with the canonical disdain centaurs evince for humans (muggle and wizard alike), it may be that a [[MisterSeahorse certain trope]] often seen in fanfiction for the series may apply to the propagation of the centaur species.

** Centaurmon from ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'', ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'' and ''Anime/DigimonXrosWars'', ''Anime/DigimonXrosWars'' is an odd looking variety since their "human" features are hidden, are covered in odd purple pustule looking things, and Sleipmon from ''Anime/DigimonSavers''.are partially cybernetic with a built in arm canon despite still being considered a "nature spirit" type.


Added DiffLines:

** A royal knight from ''Anime/DigimonSavers'', [[NorseMythology Sleipmon]] [[DubNameChange or]] [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Kentaurosmon]], is a 6 legged centaur with a more horse-like head on it's humanoid upper body, thus having [[MeaningfulName 8 limbs in total]] (though they also have two fake "legs" acting as a belt just in case the last two being arms "didn't count") just like the horse they are originally named after. Their weapons of choice are a shield and crossbow instead of a traditional bow though and unlike many other examples is covered head to hoof in armor.

{{Centaurs}} are a specific kind of HalfHumanHybrid originating in mythology, possessing the upper body (head, torso and arms) of a man and the lower body (everything below the shoulders) of a horse (though other animals are common). In the original myths they tend to be a [[AlwaysChaoticEvil savage and brutal species]]: most Greek depictions show them living only to drink and... kidnap[[note]]read "rape"[[/note]] [[MarsNeedsWomen women]], or to attack travelers [[HorseArcher with their arrows]]. One possible [[DoingInTheWizard explanation]] for the original myth is of a non-horse-using culture seeing [[BornInTheSaddle horse riders]] for the first time and misinterpreting what they saw (see RealLife below).
