* ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' has this with Hannah Rose and her "magic hat". Alice Jones and her stuffed rabbit (complete with a ShoutOut to ''Anime/ParanoiaAgent'') could have been counted as a borderline example, too, until she discarded it in favour of [[spoiler:Guy Rapide's [[AlasPoorYorick head]]]].

* The practice of personifying ships and other forms of transportation goes back so far it's definitely OlderThanDirt and might be even as old as mankind. Many ancient cultures would ritually paint or carve eyes on the prow of ships as a way of granting them sentience, a practice still followed today in some places. Depending on the culture, ships (and other vehicles) may be personified as male or female, regardless of whether the vehicle's name implies one or the other. Of course, for the English-speaking crowd, a personified vehicle is almost always female.
** In his book ''Water Transport'', historian James Hornell mentions an old Hindu tradition which involves imbuing a protective god or goddess into a ship, taking the personification a step further. This coincides with an "opening of the eye" ceremony, in which pupils are carved into the outline of an eye to "awaken" the ship.
* During WWI and WWII almost all aircrews named their birds, as they were assigned to fly only one. In those days production standards couldn't be as high as they were today, so every airplane had its own ticks and tricks. This was more noticeable in bombers. Nearly every B-29 bomber ever produced had its own unique flaw that would have made it inoperable. One of the design engineers, Victor Agather, had to fix 600 of these fatal flaws in a three-day time period. Every bomber's crew were the only people who could keep it flying, so they would only be paired with that aircraft, kicking off the relationship between crew and machine. Most of them even made their own extensive modifications to keep their birds flying, like waxing the props. Many bomber crews would not only refer to their airplanes as female, but went so far as to refer to the airplane's model as if it were the airplane's ethnicity.
** For that matter, the very fact that aircrews ''call'' their planes "birds" has overtones of this.
