Any ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' able to Pokémon that can learn Surf or Fly falls into this.becomes this. At least in the games where [=HMs=] are a thing; Gen VII replaced them with Ride Pokémon, elaborated below.



** ''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.

** ''VideoGame/PokemonUltraSunAndUltraMoon'' adds Mantine as a Ride Pokémon, where (akin to the Eon Pokémon in ''Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire'') it's used to surf between Alola's islands [[UnexpectedGameplayChange in a surfing minigame]] where the player avoids wild Pokémon and does tricks in the air to gain points. The OlympusMons Solgaleo and Lunala also get in on the act, being used to travel through [[AnotherDimension Ultra Space]] in a similar fashion.

* [[Videogame/GodOfWar God of War II and III]] have this. In II, you can mount on a Pegasus twice during the game, starting a [[SuddenGameplayChange segment of the game made only for it]]. In III, you can ride Cyclops, Cerberus and Harpies, which are "normal" enemies, but that can destroy other enemies when commanded by you. After the ride ends, [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness Kratos kills them.]]
* [[Videogame/CastlevaniaLordsOfShadow Castlevania: Lords of Shadow]] has four kinds of mounts available: Swamp Troll, Giant Spider, Warg, and Pan (Using a horse form), the former three being enemies that are encountered many times during the story, but that can only be mounted after getting the Spiked Chain upgrade, and Pan, who is ridable only in the second mission of the game. When mounting enemies, they are invincible, and can (and must) be used to completely thrash other enemies and help Gabriel cross certain obstacles that he couldn't cross on his own, and like the above example, after using them, Gabriel [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness kills them]].

** Downplayed with Yoshi in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2''. Yoshi can flutter jump[[note]]the key to a GoodBadBug that breaks the game in interesting ways[[/note]], use his tongue as a hook to swing over wide bottomless pits and to eat enemies, and transform into Dash/Light/Balloon forms as power-ups. However, this is one of the few ''Mario'' games in which Yoshi does not provide an extra hit point at all, so taking a hit will result in '''both''' Mario/Luigi losing a health wedge/life, '''and''' Yoshi fleeing.

* ''BillyHatcherAndTheGiantEgg'' has three: Rikol the kangaroo-lion who can jump quite high and spit fireballs, Datch the sheep-ostrich who can glide and has a green-charged attack... thing, and Kaboot the shark who averts your SuperDrowningSkills and has a body-slam attack. They can also sustain several hits of damage, instead of just one.

** Aside from the robotic animals created by Avalon, you can build your own mount from scratch using the Controllinator in the LevelEditor.
