* A junkyard cat called "Jack Bauer the Cat" in an episode of ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia. It seemed to be street-smarts personified, albeit a totally normal cat otherwise.

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' has notoriously clever crows; some crows are capable of vocalization and most crows can be and are trained to carry messages between castles. Also, direwolves are considerably bigger than their extinct real-life counterparts and have tangential intelligence related to their owner's capacity to Warg.

* Monkeys are capable of ''lying''. One of the monkey enclosures at Edinburgh Zoo is set up to allow a great deal of study into the monkeys' social behaviour to be carried out, and the keepers have noted not just that the monkeys have different calls for different foodstuffs, but that the first monkey outside, on seeing that a particular favourite has been provided, will sometimes give the call for a less popular meal in order to try and keep it for itself.

* ''VideoGame/Fallout3'''s Dogmeat is a downplayed example. In most areas he's just a well-trained guard dog, but he also recognizes guns, medicine and ammunition well enough to fetch them when asked. While it's not impossible that he's been professionally trained, given the [[CrapsackWorld state of the world]] it's unlikely.

** Abu and Rajah from ''{{Disney/Aladdin}}''. Jasmine was also able to pet a goldfish. Iago the parrot is a TalkingAnimal, tough; he was only pretending to be a regular parrot when the sultan was around.

* OsamuTezuka runs on this trope: ''Manga/KimbaTheWhiteLion'' is a prime example, though many of his works, like ''{{Manga/Phoenix}}'' and ''Manga/BlackJack'', feature extraordinarily intelligent animals whose sapience is never explained or questioned. One ''Manga/BlackJack'' story revolves around a bird who collects money to pay a boy's medical bills. No, really. [[TearJerker But it's not smart enough to realize when the debt's been completely paid off.]]

** Also capable of understanding humans and each other despite breed and species differences: Ace the Bat Hound, Streaky the Super Cat, and the pets of Batman's villains. ** Lastly, the Dog Stars not only communicate through breed differences, but each hails from a different planet. On top of that they pilot their own spacecraft.

Removed Yogi bear as an example. Humans and animals converse regularly in that world, even if Yogi was exceptional for a bear. Ranger Smith conversed with him as if it were normal.

** Ace the Bat Hound, Streaky the Super Cat, and the animal pets of Catwoman and the Penguin all understand humans and despite being different species, all understand each other. ** also true for the Dog Stars, who are not only different dog breeds, but from different planets. TranslationConvention is at play for some of that, but they do pilot their own spacecraft.
