* ''VideoGame/MetalSlug'' has these feature prominently enough to be named after one - granted, most of these are adorable ''military vehicles'', but the series features ridable animals from time to time, ranging from camel to elephant to donkey. Unlike vehicles, riding an animal leaves the player exposed to enemy fire and may sometimes be a liability.

** In ''VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamland'', it's possible for Kirby and friends to ride each other, which allows them to utilize a CombinationAttack when all four of them are stacked up in a tower. There's also a more traditional example with [[spoiler:the dragon Landia]], who serves as a mount for an UnexpectedShmupLevel.

* Rush from the ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' series predates Yoshi, and is possibly the UrExample of this trope.[[Note]] Though it should be noted that Miyamoto had been developing Yoshi as far back as [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBrosTheLostLevels SMB2]], but couldn't get the riding mechanic to work on the NES; as a result, Rush (for whom the Items in [[VideoGame/MegaMan2 MM2]] could be seen as prototypes) debuted in [[VideoGame/MegaMan3 MM3]] two months before ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' was released in Japan.[[/note]] Throughout the games, Rush has been a spring board, a jet sled, a mini-submarine, three types of PoweredArmor, a digging tool, a motorcycle, and a space capsule. Most of his forms have provided their own weapon, or altered Mega Man's ArmCannon.

** 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.

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.
