Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/VillainsByNecessity'': Valerie's raven Nightshade is hers, doing things such as spy or perform small tasks she orders. She also has genuine affection for him-he's more than just a tool. Good mages also often have them. The downside however is having a familiar requires a kind of {{psychic link}}, so any harm is shared. Sam and Arcie quickly [[ExploitedTrope exploit]] the fact when Valerie takes over the group by holding Nightshade hostage until she gives up her amulet. Later, Nightshade fights some familiars of Good mages, and kills two in one go.

* The daemons in ''Literature/HisDarkMaterials''.''Literature/HisDarkMaterials'' are a more intimate case, being literally ''your soul'', shaped like an animal, running around outside you.

* The ''Literature/YoungWizards'' series has a few characters who fit the bill. It's explained that human wizards who use magic around the house (read: [[MundaneUtility basically all of them]]) may find their pets getting smarter than usual and developing strange talents due to the exposure. So far we've had a parrot and several koi with prophetic abilities, a dog who can talk "walks" through alternate dimensions, a bardic cat, and (at a stretch) Dairene's sentient laptop/[[SpellBook wizard manual]] Spot. In something of a reversal, there are also perfectly normal humans who may or may not ([[TheMasquerade probably not]]) realize that their ''pets'' are wizards.

* ''TableTopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'', being based on the 3rd edition of D&D, retains familiars as an option for wizards and sorcerers and makes them the source of witches' magic. In addition, any character willing to invest in the feats can gain a familiar through lingering magical potential in their bloodline.

* ''TableTopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'', being based on the 3rd edition of D&D, retains familiars as an option for wizards and sorcerers (but no longer has it as the ''only'' option in the core) and makes them the source of witches' magic. In addition, any character (except for a scattered few class options that specifically prohibit having familiar-style arcane bond) willing to invest in the feats can gain a familiar through lingering magical potential in their bloodline.
