* Most of the mutants in ''TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' were kept as cool pets at one point or another. Leatherhead was an exotic pet who was flushed down the toilet when his owners couldn't/wouldn't keep him anymore, there are the titular turtles (of course), and Master Splinter who qualifies not by being a rat, but by being a rat who ''knows martial arts''.
* Baron Winters, leader of ''NightForce'', has a pet leopard named Merlin.

* Exotic pets frequently undergo fads; where a pet which is featured on a television program or movie, or kept by a celebrity, triggers a flood of people obtaining similar pets. Fads have included pot-bellied pigs, sugar gliders, pygmy hedgehogs, and owls. These crazes usually die out quickly, and result in many abandoned or poorly treated animals.

* Arguably one of the most famous examples of this trope was Music/MichaelJackson[='s=] pet chimpanzee, Bubbles, who Jackson owned from the 1983 to 2003. Bubbles became almost as iconic as Jackson himself, serving as a symbol of the man's eccentricity; heck, he was the namesake of King Kai's pet monkey in ''Manga/DragonBall''. Bubbles eventually had to be given to the Center for Great Apes as he had become too aggressive for life with Jackson, and has lived in peace at the shelter ever since.
