* The [[SummonMagic Aeons]] of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' demand that the Summoner enter an intense, soul-binding pact with them before yielding their power. [[GameplayAndStoryIntegregation Extends to the gameplay]], as Yuna's Aeons grow in strength depending on her own stats. [[spoiler: The bond is particularly strong between a Summoner and his or her final Aeon due to the relationship they had before the final Aeon's fayth was created. This bond is so strong that when [[BigBad Yu Yevon]] posseses the final Aeon, the psychic backlash from the bond being severed kills the Summoner. At the game's end, when Yuna must destroy the Aeons to prevent [[BigBad Yu Yevon]] from taking them over, banishing them causes her physical and emotional pain]].

* The [[{{Mons}} Mamono/Mamodo]] from ''ZatchBell'' need to find a human partner to supply [[{{Mana}} Heart Power]] and activate spells while taking part in the king-election tournament on Earth. While a few of these pairs ([[spoiler:Won/Lee, Clear/Vino, Gash/Kiyo]]) develop {{Psychic Link}}s, the Heart Power-link is actually due to the rules of the tournament rather than part of the Mamono's nature and the Mamono don't even get to choose their partner themselves.

* In the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse, banthas (the big woolly, horned beasts of burden in Episode IV) were paired with young Tusken Raiders as companions for life. From the Star Wars wiki:
-->When a Tusken Raider child reached the age of seven he or she was ceremonially presented with a bantha of the same age as a companion for life. The youth learned to care for the creature, and the two built a mystical bond between Tusken and creature. When the bantha reached maturity, the male Tusken Raider would saddle his companion and ride it into the desert for adult initiation ceremonies. When Tuskens married, the couple's banthas would also mate, and when the Tusken pair had a son or daughter, their banthas tended to have a calf of the same sex.
-->The banthas of Tatooine were known to form deep bonds with the Tusken Raiders of the planet and often committed suicide if their riders were to die first. Banthas which died naturally were placed in vast graveyards, which held a kind of ceremonial reverence with the banthas.
** In ''Shatterpoint'', it's mentioned that some Korunnai form Force bonds with their akk dogs -- large, armored, reptilian wolf-bear-''things''. The bond meant the akk trusts its rider completely, is instantly obedient, and they can share senses and orders at the speed of thought, which lent the pair unmatched agility and reaction times. If the human partner dies, though, the akks generally become despondent and/or given to rages, and are usually put down.
* The daemons in Philip Pullman's ''Literature/HisDarkMaterials'' trilogy are a variant of this -- bonded to their human because they are the physical embodiment of [[OurSoulsAreDifferent that person's soul]], and in the case of children, will change into different animals depending on their partner's emotional state. The daemon's gender is usually the opposite of the human's, exceptions being very rare indeed.

In [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9586702 Fate's Gamble]], these are Servants (from the Nasuverse, especially VisualNovel/{{FateStayNight}}), while in [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/10181533 Reinforced Magic]] they are a book and several [[Familiar animals]] with human forms.

* In Literature/TheLonTobynChronicle, the Children of Amarid are mages that bind themselves to hawks to gain their powers. In addition to giving them the abilities to throw fire, shape wood with their mind, read other people's thoughts and create shield barriers, they can see through the eyes of their hawk and empathize with their thoughts and feelings. If mages die "unbound," or without a hawk, they remain in the world as ghosts and cannot pass into the afterife due to a curse that Theron, Amarid's co-founder in the creation of the organization, placed upon the Order.

* Creator/AnneMcCaffrey is probably the archetypal example of bond creatures. Her ''Literature/DragonridersOfPern'' series features dragons with near-human intelligence which choose a human partner at hatching (this is called Impression). Riders whose dragon dies often commit suicide; dragons whose rider dies pretty much invariably do. Fire lizards have a mild variant of the Impression (normally it merely helps to organize their swarms, but was turned UpToEleven for dragons). Less well known but also interesting, this author's ''TheShipWho...'' series features spaceships powered by the human minds of people whose bodies were defective or injured, and these {{Sapient Ship}}s, also known as Brains, form partnerships with human Brawns. This bond is not permanent, it may be friendly or romantic, and the telepathic element is enabled by technology.

* Robin McKinley's novel ''Pegasus'' has this as the result of a spell performed to bind a human to a pegasus, which happens as a young person's rite of passage. Most share a type of simple telepathic communication, but only the protagonist's pegasus speaks in actual language.
