* 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.
