* In the VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft novel ''TheShatteringPreludeToCataclysm'', Stormsong leads a band of Grimtotem sent in to assassinate Baine Bloodhoof, but instead slips out and warns Baine about the plot, having believed that his leader Magatha [[MoralEventHorizon went too far]] by [[spoiler:killing Baine's father, the High Chieftain Cairne, whom Stormsong had respected despite sometimes disagreeing with]]. Stormsong then helps Baine escape and assists him in his quest to oust Magatha. After Baine succeeds, he exiles the Grimtotem except for those who swear loyalty to him, knowing that some of them did so for self-serving reasons and deciding to watch over them.

* A very spoilery example in VideoGame/TheLastGuardian, [[spoiler:our friend [[PetMonstrosity Trico]] was one of many beasts controlled by the Master of the Valley (a sort of {{Magitek}} A.I that controls Trico's kind via signals picked up by their horns) when Trico was returning with [[TheProtagonist the boy]] for him to be [[HumanResources processed]], he was struck by lightning and crashes into a mountainside breaking his horns in the process. With his horns broken he can no longer be controlled and becomes the boy's friend and the two eventually end up destroying the master.]]
