* ''Manga/ACentaursLife'' stars Himeno, a Japanese ''kentauride'' teenager and chronicles her daily life in High School. She's a classic centaur, though with horse ears on the top of her head, and considered just as human as angels, mermaids, and [[LittleBitBeastly long ears]]. Probably the biggest thing setting these centaurs apart from other kinds is their insistence on wearing clothing on their lower bodies. The centaur equivalent of a bikini is a three-piece, with an item of clothing at the base of every pair of limbs.

* ''VideoGame/AbyssOdyssey'': Padutaurs are basically Deer-Centauresses. They wield poleaxes and can bring the hurt due to their agility and attack range. As a mook, padutaurs need support to back them up or they get "jumpy". When playing as one, use area attacks to push back the melee attackers.

* ''{{VideoGame/Bayonetta 2}}'' combines this with OurAngelsAreDifferent with a dash of EldritchAbomination, introducing new angelic species such as the Acceptance, the Accolade, and the Allegiance, who are all depicted as bulky, headless centaurs with angelic wings and armor, and a giant marble face on their abdomens. And that's not even getting into what they look like [[NightmareFuel once they start taking damage]].

* [[http://forum.lol.garena.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=1419&d=1333941321 Hecarim, the Shadow of War]], a champion from ''LeagueOfLegends'', is certainly not your normal centaur- he's a spectral undead monstrousity that seems to be a centaurlike AnimatedArmor filled with baleful fire. Not a friendly chap by any means.

* In ''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.
