* Chamo from ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' is less of TheObiWan and more of a DirtyOldMan in ermine form. He does a bit of mentoring about a particular aspect of the local magic system (a special form of partnership), but mostly so he can collect a hefty paycheck from somewhere or other every time Negi gets a partner.

* ''Film/StarWars'': Yoda, anyone? Not in the prequels, but in the original trilogy where he was this manic muppet hiding in a swamp and mostly just provided a training montage. Oh, yes.
* Arguably, Fin Raizel from ''Film/{{Willow}}''. She's a powerful sorceress who spends much of the movie in the form of a possum (not to mention a raven and a goat).

* Jubei to Ragna in ''VideoGame/{{BlazBlue}}''.
* [[PeterDinklage Ghost]] is this to the player in ''VideoGame/{{Destiny}}''. Granted he's a robot instead of a lil' animal (abit a magical robot), but he's still a textbook example of a mentor/exposition giver that follows the player and guides then through their quests (which usually involve him being a glorified door key.)
* The Owl Sage in MyWorldMyWay . Doesn't follow Elise constantly, but keeps showing up to give her advice.
* The cat in the fangame Memories of Mana
* The owl in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening''.

* [[Webcomic/{{Megatokyo}} Boo]] is something of a subversion in that he really does try his best to help Largo, but unlike most of the other examples on this list he has something of a language barrier to overcome. In effect, Boo ends up just squeaking while Largo goes off and causes havoc.
** Actually it seems that Erika can understand Boo just fine, implying that his ineffectiveness is less due to a language barrier and more to do with Largo being a hyperactive CloudCuckooLander who doesn't listen to anyone's advice if he doesn't need to.
* Miya from ''Webcomic/AngelMoxie'' is a sendup of Luna from ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', but is a good deal snarkier.
** Then there's the whole really-a-CatGirl and [[spoiler: exchanging her life for Alex's]] thing

* Madara in ''NatsumeYuujinchou'' usually occupies the form of a fat old cat and goes by 'Nyanko-sensei.' He's officially more of a bodyguard than a mentor, and is generally agreed to be an ugly alcoholic greedyguts of a feline, but manages to guide, support, and be adorable anyway.
