* Darwin from ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' used to just be the Watterson family's pet fish, but he developed intelligence, grew legs, became Gumball's best friend, and the family adopted him as one of their own. The parallel to real life interracial adoption is made especially obvious by how [[TheOtherDarrin both]] of Darwin's voice actors are black, but the ones for the rest of the family are white.

** And let's not forget Han Solo himself also falls into this category. He had been orphaned at a very young age, and while working for a rather nasty thief, he gets taken in and cared for by a kindly, elderly female Wookie. Han even comments in a later novel that due to the love she gave him, and the fact that Chewie and other Wookies have saved his skin on ''countless'' occasions, he feels he owes the Wookie's a life debt, not the other way around.
