** The legion that became the War Hounds (now known as the World Eaters) were named that by the Emperor because their ferocity in battle reminded him of the white war hounds employed by a warrior tribe in northern Terra.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}} Fantasy'' the Warriors of Chaos have Chaos warhounds, hounds mutated by chaos to be vicious killing machines. They are bigger than regular dogs, and have horns on their heads.

* In ''TheHorseAndHisBoy'', Bree tells Shasta that as the war horse of the nobleman Ahoshta, he was trained as an attack animal and acted as such. While he does tell Shasta about his adventures, he always ended them by saying that he'd rather go back to Narnia soon and fight for the Narnian troops as an equal member of the army, not just as a warrior's steed.

* In ''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.

* ''{{Valerian}}'' features a number of creatures classified as "living weapons", most notably the iconic Scnarfeur, essentially an entire species of [[BrattyHalfPint Bratty Half Pints]] with explosively caustic spit and instinctive hostility towards all living things due to originating on a DeathWorld. They can be tamed by binding their head gland down, which turns them docile and allows them to develop a human-like personality, but they remain classified as animals and releasing the head gland will again revert them to their original state.

* The first special unit for the Harmony affinity in ''VideoGame/CivilizationBeyondEarth'' is the Xeno Swarm: an assortment of indigenous alien creatures which have been bred in captivity and raised by humans. Keeping with Harmony's theme of genetic engineering and cloning, the creatures are specially engineered to be stronger, faster and more resilient than their natural-born counterparts, and have a [[ExplosiveBreeder two week time period between seed matrix and trained adult xenoform]]. They're led by a pair of human handlers - biologists and medical staff who have been implanted by pheromone glands which give them greater control over their creatures.

* Subverted in ''{{Frasier}}''. Martin has been staring at photos from an unsolved murder years ago. When he goes to take a break, Frasier glances at them and concludes a trained monkey was used to kill the victim. When Martin solves the case, Frasier assumes he was right about the monkey, but we learn it was a crooked cop.

* Eaglebones Falconhawk from ''TheAquabatsSuperShow'' can summon an invisible female bird called The Dude. So far, The Dude has only helped Eaglebones without clear instruction twice (once in "[=EagleClaw!=]" to take away his brother [=EagleClaw=]'s guitar and once in "Showtime!" to [[spoiler:take [=SuperMagic PowerMan=]'s headband after Jimmy the Robot removes it from Space Monster M's head]]) but in her other appearances she follows this trope. * In one episode of ''Columbo'', a man uses his trained Doberman Pinschers to kill at the command word "Rosebud". Columbo turns this on its head by having the dogs retrained, so that when the culprit tries to get rid of Columbo the same way, all he gets is a savage face-licking.

* Hunter Pets in ''WorldOfWarcraft''. Warlocks and Deathknights have pets too, but they are either demonic or undead. * The Zuul in ''SwordOfTheStars'' were originally created as weapons by the Suul'ka against a Morrigi colony. They were especially designed to be ravenous and fast-multiplying in order to quickly kill and consume all living things on the planet and die off. Unfortunately, the Zuul prove themselves masters at MindRape, allowing them to quickly learn the secrets of the target population, build spaceships, and escape into the universe. They are also extremely devious (at least, the males are; the females are mindless brutes; all by design). Fortunately for the Suul'ka, most of their pets have become ''even more'' loyal to them, since they now view the Suul'ka as gods. * In ''AceAttorneyInvestigations 2'', the blind assassin Ryoken Houinbo trained his guide dog to kill, to the point where it's considered one of his trademark weapons.
