* William Albacastle / Willy Pete, authorial character of the WhiteWolf ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension'' supplement ''Iteration X'' and a major character in the novel ''Judgement Day'' by Bruce Baugh has a damn cool chair. His motorized wheelchair houses treads, robotic arms, and Hades knows what else.

* [[LastOfHisKind Yagrum Bagarn]] from ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind]]'' has a variant. The Corprus Disease has left him bloated and unable to use his legs, so he gets around on a [[SteamPunk steam powered]] set of mechanical spider legs.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.

* 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.

* ''{{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.
