* Yoruichi from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', in the early-but-not-the-beginning episodes wherein she was impersonating a tomcat for incognito purposes. She was grouchy and uncommunicative and seemed to be something of a riff on Luna from ''Franchise/SailorMoon''.

TheHero is, in the beginning, just a normal boy/girl (or at least relatively normal, anyway). However, this character has a [[BecauseDestinySaysSo powerful destiny]], completely unaware of the role they will play in the grand scheme of things. Someone has to break the news, and turn this {{Muggle}} [[TookALevelInBadass into the hero he/she is meant to be]]. And that someone is... [[Franchise/SailorMoon a talking cat]]?

* 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.

* [[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
