* Acutely (and deliberately) averted when Franchise/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.

* Zodon from ''ComicBook/{{PS238}}'' has one. Unfortunately when it becomes damaged, the faculty would not allow him to repair it himself (rightly fearing he would take the opportunity to weaponize it further.) Instead it is "repaired" by another student who makes it to conform to her own, much different, tastes.

* ''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''.

* TSR's ''TopSecret'' game, ''Magazine/{{Dragon}}'' magazine #56 module "Mad Merc". The title character is an EvilCripple who used a wheelchair with a built-in jetpack, which allowed him (and up to 100 lb. extra) to fly up to 500 yards. It could travel at up to 30 m.p.h. for up to 1 minute, and was capable of hovering.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' has Space Marine Dreadnoughts, {{Walking Tank}}s crewed by greviously wounded but NotQuiteDead veteran Space Marines. DependingOnTheWriter and exactly how severe a mauling the Marine took, it can cross over into WeCanRebuildHim.

** 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.

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.
