* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' skinchangers are known for this. After bonding with an animal they become able to inhabit it directly, but they can also command it to an extent. The Stark children and [[HeroicBastard Jon Snow]] are all bonded to direwolves though Sansa's was killed before her abilities developed. The most common skinchangers are wargs, who bond with (dire)wolves, but we've also heard of shadowcats, eagles, bears, ravens, cats, goats, and boars.

* ''[[IronKingdoms Hordes]]'' pits two [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking warlocks]] and their armies against each other. Warlocks come in many flavors, but [[TheBeastmaster all share the ability to direct and give orders]] to their warbeasts, ranging from bipedal WarElephants and lightning-fast [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent warpwolves]] to monstrous [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragonspawns]].

* The ''HeraldsOfValdemar'' series has the [[CoolHorse Shin'a'in battlesteeds]]. Unlike your average warhorse, these have been bred over centuries to be the ultimate fighting mount (possibly with some magic help at the beginning). Smart, obedient, and capable of distinguishing and killing enemies without any direction, they make a deadlier team with a human than another human would. They're also good at tasks such as guarding camps and equipment, finding water in the forest, and carrying injured riders to get help. What they aren't good at is being pretty; looks had no priority in the breeding program and the steeds resemble roughly-carved horse-shaped granite.

* The [[RomanEmpire Roman Army]] had large units of war dogs. However, unlike almost any other types of military units and weapon technology, there are no known reports that describe their tactical use in great detail. Either they were mostly for show, or the Romans [[SecretWeapon didn't want their enemies to know about them]].
