* Several characters in the ''Franchise/DragonAge'' series seem to understand Mabari warhounds (a dog breed with magically enhanced intelligence) well enough to have a conversation, even though it sounds like random barks to the player.

* In his appearances in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', Aquaman's ability to command the creatures of the sea is again referenced, and since this is [[AdaptationDistillation the DCAU]], he uses it to much more BadAss effect. Like dropping a killer whale on people and riding it into battle.

* In the badass commanding-animals-in-battle category, Shido Fuyuki of ''GetBackers''. The manga goes into a little more detail: apparently, any member of the Maryuudo (i.e., Amon Natsuki, who was asked to help rescue Madoka by monkeys) can talk to animals, but it is Shido's tribe, the Shiki, that has the ability to awaken the animals' ability to think and act on the level of humans. There's also the Maryuudo's mortal enemies, the Kiryuudo, who communicate with and command bugs.



* ''Manga/OnePiece'':
** Not only is Chopper able to talk to just reindeer, he can talk to other animals as well. Although he is a reindeer himself, he is qualified because he had eaten a devil's fruit which allows him to become semi human.
** [[{{Filler}} Apis]] would also qualify.
** Mermaids can naturally talk to fish, and Jinbe also displays this ability (remarked to be unusual for a fishman).
** There is the Mermaid Princess Shirahoshi who can talk to sea kings, which give her the ability to sink island. [[spoiler: We learned later that she's the current form of Poseidon, one of the three ancient weapons feared by the World Government]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/DotAndTheKangaroo'' and its sequels, Dot can talk to animals when she eats a special root called "the fruit of understanding."



* Panda's owner, Mimi, in ''Anime/{{Hamtaro}}''. In fact, she's the ''only'' human able to talk to the Ham-Hams and understand their speech. Though in some instances during Laura's diary entries, it seems almost as if Laura and Hamtaro can communicate telepathically, as sometimes Hamtaro mentally responds to what Laura is thinking as she writes her diary, and Hamtaro explicitly states that he can't read.

* John Stretch from the ''GarrettPI'' novels is a [[UpliftedAnimal ratman]] who can communicate with his un-altered rodent kin. This allows him to use them as scouts and spies, although their usefulness is limited by their poor vision, limited brainpower, and inability to understand speech by anyone ''but'' him.

* Fluttershy in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' 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.
** Also doubles as an ActorAllusion in "Hurricane Fluttershy", when Twilight Sparkle, voiced by Tara Strong (the voice actor for [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Bubble]]s), is chattered at by a squirrel, to which her response is "Do I LOOK like I speak squirrel?"
** ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyG3'' has Pinkie Pie. She's ''usually'' not as reality-bendingly madcap as her FIM counterpart, but there are two exceptions: her 'squink' thinking procedure, her obsession with the color pink. How [[CatchPhrase positively pink]] is she? She was once able to command some pink fireflies to basically act as flashlights for the gang during their quest. When asked how she'd managed that, Pinkie Pie matter-of-factly answers, "I speak pink."
