[[AC:RealLife]] * LeonardoDaVinci [[http://dsc.discovery.com/videos/doing-davinci-scythe-chariot.html liked to take things to the point where they really weren't the same trope anymore.]] * Boudicca never actually used these as British charioteers actually played the part of 'battle taxi' for a (noble) warrior, transporting him into the fray and providing a means of escape if it went badly. Eastern forces ''did'' use scythed chariots as a shock weapon but they became rapidly obsolete as the professional armies of Macedon and then Rome produced countermeasures. ** Chariots were arguably on their way out from the moment horses that could carry a rider were available. A charioteer has to control a whole team and killing or wounding even one horse will drag the rest down with it. All chariots need a driver as well as a warrior whereas it is possible for a cavalryman to control a single horse with leg pressure and reins while wielding weapons; thus cavalry effectively doubles the amount of firepower(or bowpower, or swordpower) available. Not to mention it is easier to reach a target without all that complexity of horses, harnesses, and the chariot itself in the way. Chariots could be blocked by terrain much more easily than cavalry- woods, rocky terrain, or slopes could stop chariots cold. Perhaps most importantly chariots need a industrial base whereas horses can depend solely on what a pastoral society can provide. This allowed HordesFromTheEast to get in on the fun of mass homicide in a big way where they were limited in the time of chariots. By the time AlexanderTheGreat met the Persians chariots were perhaps among the sentimental anachronisms that appear on battlefields from time to time. * Knock-off wheels have been illegal as factory equipment on new cars in the US since 1968 because while this isn't their purpose (they're made to be unbolted by unscrewing the central wingnut rather than undoing the usual 4 or 5 lug nuts), they can have that effect.

* In ''VideoGame/SaintsRow2'' and ''3'' you can buy them for your cars. The spikes pop out when you pick up a bit of speed. Unfortunately, they don't collide with pedestrians, only vehicles.

* Vigor, the champion of the [[GladiatorGames Nobilian arena]] in ''SecretOfEvermore'', fights from his spiked chariot. The wheels can cause considerable damage. The catch is, [[CombatPragmatist you're on]] ''[[CombatPragmatist foot]]'' . . .

* The Buzzards in ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' have these on their hedgehog-like vehicles, designed for disabling vehicles that enter their territory. To counter this, vehicles such as the War Rig have spikes on their own wheels which point outwards to parry them.

* These are a car customization option in the ''SaintsRow'' games, where the spikes protrude automatically from the wheels as the accelerator is held down. [[SchmuckBait Just don't drive up the side of police vehicles too closely with them]].
