** Mepple and Mipple from ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure'', and for that matter, ''all'' the non-human characters in ''Franchise/PrettyCure''.

** Mepple and Mipple from ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure'', and for that matter, ''all'' the non-human characters in ''Franchise/PrettyCure''. Cute floating critters who transform into the TransformationTrinket are a mainstay of the franchise.



**It especially goes for the ''{{Franchise/Digimon}}'' series, where the {{Mons}} are {{The Chosen One}}s and the kids are actually less crucial to the in-universe situation.
*** Bokomon and Neemon from ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'' really carry this vibe, being unable to transform or fight while the kids themselves transform into Digimon. (Not only were they never shown to fight in the series, the card game, which is the source of attack names for many a character who didn't do any fighting in the shows, gives their attacks as "Book of Knowledge" and "Pretend Sleep," respectively. They also share "[[ScrewThisImOuttaHere Escape Dash]]." Being good strictly for comic relief and occasional exposition is ''in their programming.''

*Even if not Japanese, MagicalGirl type heroes must have cute critters as sidekicks and guides. In ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug,'' Ladybug and others like her have small critters called 'kwamis' that give them their powers by merging with the TransformationTrinket.
*The {{WesternAnimation/WITCH}} team's sidekick is a 'passling' called Blunk who has the natural ability to find portals.

* Most (if not all) [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon animated Disney films]]human heroes and heroines have a pantheon of these (besides a sub-array of generic Adorable Woodland Critters). The only aversion is ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire'', which has no non-human sidekicks.

** The ''[[Literature/LandOfOz Oz]]'' series also contains the Patchwork Girl (a large stuffed doll), Jack Pumpkinhead (a mannequin), the Glass Cat and the Sawhorse, all of which become sentient via the magical - and later outlawed - Powder of Life. There's also mention of accidents with a phonograph and a bearskin rug. It seems that every mundane animal (except Toto) that makes the trip to Oz ends up talking, such as Billina the hen, Jim the horse, Eureka the kitten, and the Wizard's piglets.

* Jame, the protagonist of P.C. Hodgell's ''Literature/ChroniclesOfTheKencyrath'', is always accompanied by Jorin, an ounce (small hunting cat), to which she is [[BondCreature psychically bound]]. Jorin, blind from birth, uses Jame's eyes to see, while Jame sometimes gets sensory impressions from Jorin's senses of smell and hearing. Jorin also warns Jame when he becomes aware of danger, though Jame sometimes ignores them to her detriment.
