* ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'': The HeadlessHorseman Celty has a black motorcycle that is actually her familiar; he normally takes the form of a horse, but transformed into a motorcycle to hide in the modern world. It's mentioned that Celty has the ability to un-summon him, but without her head, she's lost the memories of how to re-summon him, and she's not sure what would happen to him while he was gone.

See also SapientSteed and MentorMascot. Because AllWitchesHaveCats, cats are the most common variant for female magic users. Likely the second most common is a black dog, usually a small hound type, especially in the British Isles. In Myth/JapaneseMythology, a similar creature is called a shikigami; see {{Onmyodo}} for details.

* Yukari from the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' games has a familiar (the term they use in Japanese is ''shikigami'', which is related to {{Onmyoudo}}) called [[{{Kitsune}} Ran]], who in turn has a familiar called [[CatGirl Chen]]. Apparently, Yukari is [[RealityWarper so]] [[AGodAmI powerful]] that her familiar can have a familiar of its own. The benefit of being a familiar is that, in return for being a servant, the creature in question shares its master's powers.

** Cultivationspren give access to [[SlipperySkid Abrasion]] and [[GreenThumb Growth]] which can also be used as [[HealingHands Regrowth]]. Lift is bonded to one of these called Wyndle, though she insists he's a Voidbringer, mostly because it annoys him.

* In ''EnchantedForestChronicles'' Morwen has a large number of cats, all her familiars. This is frowned upon by more traditional witches because not only is one cat more traditional, but none of her cats are black. The cats can communicate with her and she can channel their energy for spells.

*** The series' monsters either subvert and plays the trope straight depending on what part of the series you're looking at. The bare basics of the card game implies the player is the master and any mon they summon acts as a temporary familiar. Some players don't add any attachment to any particular monster to such an extent and the ones that do don't necessarily add any benefits to the monster in question. The first example of a modern duelist who could see and interact with the Spirits of the monsters in his deck and felt a personal relationship with them was Raphael. It's unknown whether they actually talked back to him when he talked to them isn't known.
