%%* Happens in ''Film/{{Grease}}''.

** The earliest Irish legends assert that the great hero CuChullain went into battle in a chariot liberally fitted out with hooks, blades and spikes on every applicable surface (including hubcaps) so as to better rend his foes. Romantically-minded Victorian historians read this as recorded fact, and leapt to the conclusion that ''all'' Celtic heroes - and heroines - had scythes on their hubcaps. As Boudicca was a Celt, therefore... Boudicca therefore got her spiked wheels by default from the Irish legend, and all later historians took their cue from this flight of imagination.

* The Batmobile in ''BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' had these, perhaps to justify their inclusion on Kenner's toy version.

* In ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'' the Executioner's Chariot has giant bladed spikes protruding from its wheels, which take up the remaning space between it and the wall as it rides around its ring-shaped boss arena, mowing down everything in its path (including [[FlunkyBoss the skeletons occupying the arena,]] although they constantly respawn until you kill the necromancers reanimating them). You can roll under the blades if you're careful, although it's generally safer to just take refuge in the niches set in the walls. After you destroy it, you can trade its boss soul in for one of the spikes, which you can wield as a large and quite powerful [[JoustingLance lance]].
