* In ''VideoGame/ARKSurvivalEvolved'', numerous animals can fit the motif. Mammoths prove to be it quite literally, being a competent fighter and reasonably fast for a mount. The larger, slower, ''Paraceratherium'' and ''Brontosaurus'' can even have siege weapons and towers built onto their platform saddles like old illustrations of war elephants.

** [[VideoGame/AgeOfEmpiresI The first game]] gives War Elephants (which attack with their tusks), Armored Elephants (an upgrade of War Elephants with improved armor and attacks), and Elephant Archers (where the elephant in question does not attack at all, but the Bowman mounted on its back does). It also has wild elephants which can be hunted for food (though strangely, they cannot be domesticated; elephant units simply create a domestic elephant and rider).

* ''Film/KingArthurLegendOfTheSword'' (2017). [[EvilSorcerer Mordred]] summons gigantic war elephants with his BlackMagic. They are very much a KeystoneArmy, as one single strike of Excalibur by King Uther Pendragon on their summoners is enough to cause them to collapse into dust.

* In Kurt Busiek and George Perez' run on ''ComicBook/Avengers'', Sonja's nemesis Kulan Gath transmutes a couple of tanks into war elephants and they nearly trample Iron Man before he is saved by team mate Triathlon. She-Hulk tells them "Back off, Jumbo" and flattens one with a punch while swinging the other one through the air by its trunk. Even war elephants don't stand a chance against the Emerald Amazon.

* These are apparently the types of "Elephants" referred to in the song of the same name by Music/ThemCrookedVultures, since the lyrics specifically refer to "Lepers riding atop pachyderms full of germs."

* In ''Literature/TheExecutioner'' novel "Tiger War", Mack Bolan has to defend a village from a punitive expedition sent to punish them for aiding Bolan. He waits for the column to move past, then charges an elephant (used by the villagers for carrying logs) up their rear, panicking the soldiers and causing them to flee to the sides of the trail where the villagers have placed punji sticks. One of the villains shoots the mahout, where upon the elephant rips off the man's limbs and tramples him underfoot.
