Gunpowder is a character in The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad..

Role in the film

Gunpowder is a horse that Ichabod borrows to travel to the Van Tassel Farm for the Halloween Party and back home. Ichabod is first seen riding the horse to the party and then at the end, Ichabod is seen riding the Horseback home through Sleepy Hollow nervously after hearing the scary story of the Headless Horseman who rides through Sleepy Hollow every Halloween night looking for a new head. As Ichabod and Gunpowder ride through the woods, they hear voices from frogs, owls, and crows screaming "Headless Horseman! Headless Horseman! Headless Horseman! Beware! Beware! Beware!" Ichabod then hears hooves and looks down at Gunpowder's hooves to realize he's not moving and believes that someone is following them. He tries to push Gunpowder but he is too tired and doesn't move. After finding out its just cattails hitting a log, Ichabod and Gunpowder temporarily share a laugh until another laugh joins them. They then turn around and see none other than the Headless Horseman himself. The Horseman chases them through the woods and, while trying to cross the bridge, the horse is accidentally turned around back in the Horseman's direction and crashes into the Horseman's horse. When this happens, Ichabod looks into the Horseman's cloak and sees that the Horseman really doesn't have a head. Ichabod and Gunpowder then cross the bridge, but not before the Horseman throws his flaming pumpkin at Ichabod. It is unknown what happens to Gunpowder after Ichabod is spirited away by the Horseman, although it is possible that he was spirited away as well or he could have been returned to his owner.
