* In ''Literature/TheDarkswordTrilogy'', Centaurs are ''warchanged'', humans who were turned into savage berserkers to take part in a war, with the intention of turning them back mentally and physically once the war was won. The war proved far bloodier than expected and mages capable of restoring them became quite rare.

The war proved far bloodier than expected and mages capable of restoring them became quite rare. As a result the centaurs went feral and interbred with "men and beasts", becoming a new species [[AlwaysChaoticEvil similar in disposition]] to their mythological counterparts. Notably, actual horses are thought to be extinct on Thimhallan, due to most of them being as raw materials for creating centaurs.

* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' series has an enemy known as a Lynel. These creatures are a lion-human centaur (or even a lion-human-horse centaur). Despite appearing commonly in the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI first game]], they've only appeared in a few games since. Which is a good thing because [[BossInMookClothing they are extremely difficult to deal with]], and get progressively harder every time they appear.

* The centaur from ''VideoGame/SoulSacrifice'' is an utterly grotesque mix of man, horse and wagon. It was originally a man whose limitless indolence led him to a quest to do the less as possible as he considered that even the minimal effort was an insurmountable task. While starving to death inside his wagon, even eating and drinking was too much of a bothersome thing to do for him, he saw a white chalice floating in front of him and heard a voice that told him: "An offering shall be rewarded with a wish befitting the sacrifice." The man then sacrificed his body in exchange for a body that would make his life easier. Thus this revolting aberration was born.

* Creator/RobertAHeinlein's ''Starman Jones'' had centaur-like aliens. They appeared to be stupid, but the humans who landed on their planet discovered that they were highly intelligent and had other alien creatures on the planet under their control.

* ''[[AVeryPotterMusical A Very Potter Sequel]]'' features Firenze as a parody of the "wise and noble" type of centaur. (The costume is half of a horse plushie sewn to the back of the actor's pants.) It also goes to explain that [[{{Gendercide}} a plague caused all the female centaurs to go extinct,]] explaining why they are so rare. Firenze also states that centaurs have attempted to find suitable human mates, but all the women they have tried have been killed by accident during mating. [[spoiler:Until they met [[{{Yandere}} Umbridge]].]]
