* ComicBook/SquirrelGirl, also from Creator/MarvelComics, has the ability to talk to squirrels. Among other many vaguely defined talents. Oddly, the squirrels have the ability to talk with the reader. Apparently, she also believes that other animal themed super heroes have this ability as well. Cue her trying to get ''[[ComicBook/{{X23}} Wolverine]]'' to try to talk to a wolverine.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Fluttershy is able to talk to the animals she takes care of (though some scenes suggest that animals just naturally understand pony-speak, the same way Snoopy and Garfield understand humans) and can interpret the sounds they make as well. In "The Cutie Map", when the heroes are imprisoned and their powers taken away, Fluttershy tries to ask a nearby bird for help, but it doesn't respond to her and she cannot understand its speech, meaning her ability is magical in nature.
** Also doubles as an ActorAllusion in "Hurricane Fluttershy", when Twilight Sparkle, voiced by Tara Strong (the voice actor for [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Bubbles]]), is chattered at by a squirrel, to which her response is "Do I LOOK like I speak squirrel?"

nature. Note that while she can talk to and understand animals, she does not control them and most of the animals she interacts with are simply nice enough to listen to her. In "A Health of Information", royal jelly from a special beehive is needed to cure Zecora's illness. Fluttershy tries to explain her circumstances and politely ask for the royal jelly, but the bees don't care and attack her anyway, and she's forced to find another way to get it.

* Apparently Beast Boy from ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' possesses this ability as he was able to communicate with a group of raptor-like dinosaurs while mimicing their form when they found themselves stuck in a LostWorld stuck in time. Subverted as the translation revealed they still intended to eat the team of heroes, culminating in a short skirmish.

* ''ComicBook/Starfire'' has the ability to learn any language through a [[MagicKiss kiss]]. In her solo series, she uses this power to communicate with a dolphin at an aquarium. She literally presses her lips against its beak. And before anyone gets their undies in a bind, please note that dolphins ''are'' intelligent.

** In one odd example, a man who gains the ability to talk to all animals talks to two hungry ravens...and kills his horse so they'll have something to eat. Apparently he didn't stop to ask the horse's opinion of this.

** * In the Creator/BrothersGrimm fairy tale "The White Snake", a king can communicate with animals because he regularly eats a bite from a white snake. When the servant who serves the king his food secretly eats a piece of the snake, he gains the same ability and uses it to rise socially. In one odd example, a man who gains turn, the ability to talk to all animals talks to two servant overhears a bunch of hungry ravens...young ravens lamenting that they will starve without food, and straightaway kills his own horse so they'll they will have something to eat. Apparently he didn't stop does not care to ask the horse's opinion of this.
