* Creator/MercedesLackey loves this trope.
** In her modern fantasy and alternate history novels, both the Unseleighe and Seleighe Sidhe have a Fairy Raed. The Seleighe version hunts evil men whom mortal laws cannot touch, and the Unselieghe version hunts anyone foolish enough to be out during a Wild Hunt, but especially the innocent.
*** Later in the same universe '''another''' Wild Hunt shows up: this one composed of gods of death from forgotten religions. It hunts mortal and sidhe alike, wielding spears tipping with meteoritic iron.
** Mercedes Lackey's modern fantasy series (mainly the [=SERRAted=] Edge) had mentions of the Wild Hunt being the exact kind of thing you do not want to run into.

* Season 6A of ''Series/TeenWolf'' revolves around The Wild Hunt, with the Ghost Riders being the main supernatural threat of the season. In this interpretation, the Riders have the ability to erase their victims from existence, including all memories of them. They appear as ghostly cowboys and are capable of riding lightning bolts. [[spoiler:The taken are held in an otherworldly train station until the Hunt leaves town, at which time they join The Hunt and become Ghost Riders themselves. They also seem to have power over Hell Hounds, and do not abduct banshees.]]

** Elder Scrolls [[AllThereInTheManual lore]] also has an ancient [[OurElvesAreDifferent Bosmer]] ritual called the Wild Hunt. This calls upon the [[{{Precursors}} Ehlnofey]] to transform them into nightmarish hellspawn and drive intruders from the land, before turning on each other and engaging in what is described as a "[[{{Squick}} cannibalistic orgy]]". Most recently, this ritual was used to end the Five Years War between the Bosmer and the Khajiit.
