** Do not, I repeat NOT confuse it with the French comic by the same name. You will recognize that one by the interesting concept that the author tells the same story, with only slight differences, with a) centaurs b) Hells Angels (an interesting analogy - the bike works as the horse part). Oh, and by the gratuituous porn.
* The short-lived 1990s comic ''TigerWoman'' featured centaurs and other fantastic creatures. The story took place in a [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic future]] where mythical creatures are descendents of humans who had been transformed while attending futuristic theme parks and became trapped in these bodies when society broke down.

* An episode of ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' had Chris Parnell as a centaur interviewing for a typical office job. He was quite polite and well-mannered, but the boss, played by Christopher Walken, could not get past the fact that he was, indeed, a centaur; asking such questions like "Does centaur pornography exist?" and "If I watch centaur porn with the bottom half blocked out by a sheet of paper, would I be aroused?"

* ''[[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.)

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).

* ''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 (and only in the a few of the top-down games, never in the 3D ones). Which is a good thing because [[BossInMookClothing they are extremely difficult to deal with]].

Physically, a few other things can vary. For one, traditional centaurs [[ExposedExtraterrestrials do not bother with clothing.]] Also, modern depictions (possibly to make them look more distinctive) sometimes have their human parts look [[ALittleBitBeastly slightly equine]], which was never mentioned in the original myths.
