** In ''VideoGame/PokemonRanger: Shadows of Almia'', you can capture Doduo for faster travel on land, Floatzel or Empoleon for travel in water (the latter provides the ability to smash through icebergs) or Staraptor to teleport between towns. Staraptor will leave the party as soon as you arrive at your destination, the Water types will leave once you leave the water and Doduo can be ridden until you need to enter a building, then it will leave the party (although this can be prevented by doing something that prompts the Ranger pose action, such as a Quest).

Torkoal can be captured to traverse through lava.



** The sixth generation Pokémon Gogoat serves as the first true rideable Pokémon, though (as of this writing) only in [[CapitalCity Lumiose City]] and on one route. You can also ride Rhyhorn and Mamoswine on certain routes.
** ''Omega Ruby'' and ''Alpha Sapphire'' have Latias and Latios ride you around the Hoenn region in their Mega Forms, and you can find flying Pokemon like [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Lugia and Ho-Oh]], [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Dialga and Palkia]], and [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Reshiram and Zekrom]].
** ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' add to the list of rideable Pokémon via the Poké Ride mechanic--Tauros, Stoutland, Mudsdale, Machamp, Lapras, Sharpedo, and Charizard.

routes. They can also shatter rocks that are in the way.
** ''Omega Ruby'' and ''Alpha Sapphire'' have Latias and Latios ride you around the Hoenn region in their Mega Forms, and you can find flying fly to various mirage islands and other locations that cannot be reached by foot. These locations also hold various legendary Pokemon like [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Lugia Entei, Raikou and Ho-Oh]], Suicune]], [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl The lake trio, Dialga and Palkia]], and [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Reshiram and Zekrom]].
** ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' add to the list of rideable Pokémon via the Poké Ride mechanic--Tauros, Stoutland, Mudsdale, Machamp, Lapras, Sharpedo, and Charizard. These ride Pokémon completely replace HMs and various other tools that were staples in previous games: Tauros replaces both the Bike and Rock Smash, Stoutland works as the Itemfinder, Mudsdale can traverse rocky terrain, Machamp replaces the Strength HM. Lapras and Sharpedo both replace Surf, but you can fish from Lapras's back while Sharpedo is faster and can break boulders. Charizard replaces the Fly HM.

* In the single player mode of ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend'', Eddie can find and ride various critters throughout the world, depending on the area. Most are hostile and will attack, but can be ridden after being stunned by an electric attack. They range in size from the deer-like Raptor Elk to the massive Hextadon. Each critter gives Eddie a speed boost compared to his car and has a unique attack that he can unleash. With the Call of the Wild solo power, Eddie gains the ability to summon animals to him, with exactly what he calls being determined by how far along the Hunter's quest he is.

* Most mounts in AtlanticaOnline count, as they not only increase traveling speed but also grant a significant stat boost to the main character - although the mount isn't actually visible during combat.

* ''VideoGame/JamesPond 2: [=RoboCod=]'' has three types of powerup vehicles that give James more mobility and a ramming attack. The best of these is the [[LethalJokeItem flying bathtub]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Jaws}}'' offers a miniature submarine powerup that can be found randomly on the overworld map. Despite being ostensibly a vehicle, it actually functions identically to this trope, offering an increase in firepower, mobility, and a single extra hit upon which it is lost.

** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'', ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]]'' and ''TwilightPrincess'' have the fast-galloping and leaping horse Epona. The latter game also inverts the trope whenever Link turns into a wolf, in whose case Link ''is'' the Powerup Mount, for the dark imp Midna. In this formation, the two can can leap to high ledges, teleport and use a homing attack to wipe out several enemies at once.

** Whereas in the prior games Epona is, once unlocked, accessible at any time, she is a true powerup-dependend mount in ''FourSwordsAdventures'', where finding a certain object allows the four Links to ride horses at a blistering speed, crushing enemies underfoot and clearing certain obstacles for a limited period.
