I have been wondering about what a legit Fire Emblem fighter would look like on a traditional 2D setting, but... the mounts pose a bit of a problem. FE Warriors proved the concepts work in 3D, but yeah.

I know at least two examples of "cavalry": there's something from a JoJo game (and the series is so over the top I don't know if it's worth considering) and, in a way, there's also Motaro but he had a teleport and seems to be a boss character to begin with.

More troublesome would be the Pegasus and Wyvern riders... any examples of a mounted flier?

Not really the same, but Ferra/Torr was the first one to come to mind.

Can't think of any mounted fliers though.

Lol, I suppose they fall into 'mounted'.

Dang.

Actually, a couple of examples I can think of (and no, I wouldn't count Ferra/Torr).

Uh...from Chaos Breaker/Dark Awake (lol remember that old game?), Nsidor (skeleton dude riding a skeleton horse)

And of course, something more recent, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle, Johnny Joestar and Gyro Zeppeli.
Those two start off on horseback, but can get knocked off (or just dismount) to be on the ground, though this is a bit detrimental to Johnny because he's paraplegic, so you're forced to crawl (and roll) around when off of his horse. And yes, it'll do the majority of your physical attacks when mounted..
