* [[Characters/DragonBallFrieza Frieza's]] iconic antigravity hover chair from ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. Unlike most examples of this trope, Frieza doesn't use it because he has a problem leaving it, but to show how [[PhysicalGod powerful]] and [[SmugSuper arrogant]] he is. In ''[[Anime/DragonBallZBardockTheFatherOfGoku Father of Goku]]'' this is better exemplified, as Bardock tries to kill him and save Planet Vegeta, but Frieza only raises his finger while on the hover chair and [[EarthShatteringKaboom blows the planet up]] without moving from his chair.

* [[LastOfHisKind Yagrum Bagarn]] from ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind]]'' has a variant.

* In one of the "Bedlam's Bard" novels by MercedesLackey, a secondary character is left a paraplegic by events in the book. In the epilogue, we learn that she was given an elvensteed-- a shapeshifting magical being able to take the form of any transport from horse to ''Harley Davidson''-- to help her get around. It pretends to be a normal wheelchair when mundanes are around, and can pretty much do whatever she needs at any other time; no need for a handicap-accessible remodel of her home with it on the job.

* ''ComicBook/GoldDigger'' has The "La-Z-Boy OF DOOM", designed by Brianna Diggers. Its first iteration alone was capable of anti-gravity flight and packed a crapload of MoreDakka (and enough missiles for a nicely-sized MacrossMissileMassacre), and it has only gotten nastier (as in "can take AlienInvasion dreadnaught-sized starships on its own" nastier) ever since.
