* ''{{Comicbook/X-Men}}'': Charles Xavier's chair bounces back and forth between this and more conservative varieties DependingOnTheArtist.
** And timeline: the antigravity models are generally established as gifts from his soulmate Lilandra (empress of a spacefaring alien race). They're avians, so completely skipped over the concept of a "wheeled chair" when designing their own accommodations for disabilities.

* Acutely (and deliberately) averted when TheDCU's Barbara Gordon became Oracle, actually preferring "normality" to show she does not want special attention. GailSimone even explicitly forbid things like hidden missile launchers when taking suggestions for a new chair. The fanciest thing she's had are holders for her eskrima sticks.

* ''Comics/BloomCounty'': Portnoy, Hodge-Podge, and Opus want to get Cutter John one of these for his birthday, but the salesman shows them ordinary wheelchairs with the fanciest option being "mauve armrests", and tells them "Gentlemen... A wheelchair is ''not'' a vehicle for '''personal expression!!''' '''''PERIOD!'''''" So they build him a custom one out of a recliner chair (with a TV, fire extinguisher, fridge, and photon torpedoes). Doesn't appear to be online but is in the collection ''Billy and the Boingers''.

* The Psilon in ''VideoGame/MasterOfOrion'' are humanoids with oversized brains whose bodies have atrophied due to generations of reliance on technology. They are generally depicted using hoverchairs in art, and some of the fluff mentions that their spaceships and tanks are effectively just extensions to these.

* Poor Lyril is bound to a rail-mounted one in Sierra's ''Lighthouse; The Dark Being''. She has a keypad at her fingertips to control it, but , since it served as life support after an accident that took her legs the device itself is now so old that she can barely even speak properly.
