* Lockheed, Kitty Pryde's pet miniature dragon, from the ComicBook/{{X-Men}}.
** The ComicBook/{{X-Men}} had a stranger version with the character Maggot, who was accompanied by Eany and Meany, a pair of [[ExtremeOmnivore matter eating slugs]]....which were his ''mutated intestines.''

Added DiffLines:

** ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'': A bit of an odd case. Technically all of the protagonists are non-human, but in the ShowWithinAShow "Woody's Roundup", Bullseye the horse is this to Woody. He also serves as this to the other toy characters, since he's the only one who [[FurryConfusion isn't anthropomorphized.]]

** Ash's Pikachu arguably fills the role best out of all the Pokémon characters in the show, since it has a highly developed relationship with Ash.



** Pikachu could easily be considered to be Ash's sidekick.
** Others include Togepi for Misty (until it gets released later), Piplup for Dawn, Axew for Iris, and Pansage for Cilan.

** 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.

** In the first three games, Donald Duck and Goofy]] are this to Sora, as they fight alongside him right from the moment they met. And several various [[GuestStarPartyMember Guest Star Party Members]] are also non human, including [[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristma} Jack Skellington]], [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast the Beast]], [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ariel]] and [[Disney/TheLionKing Simba]].
*** Of course, in [[{{Disney/TheLittleMermaid}} Atlantica]] and the [[{{Disney/TheLionKing}} Pride Lands]], Sora's not a human, either, as he becomes a merman and lion, respectively, in those worlds. And all three of them are computer programs in [[{{Film/Tron}} Space Paranoids]], though they resemble their original species underneath the [[{{TwentyFourHourArmor}} armor]] they wear. Tron himself looks human, but this is due to taking on the appearance of his [[spoiler: (and Rinzler's)]] original user: Dr. Alan Bradley.

*** Then, in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsIII'', the trio become plastic toys in one world. [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory Woody and Buzz]] are party members here, too, and they're certainly not humans either.

**
Teddie in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''''VideoGame/Persona4'' is an interesting version. He starts off as a teddy bear thing, [[spoiler:but gains a human body when in the real world]]. Though he's not a sidekick per se, he has a high regard for the protagonist, whom he calls "Sensei", and his Social Link is the only non-group one that ranks up automatically.
