* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series backstory, this is one of the interpretations of Morihaus, the [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Aedric demi-god]] described as a "winged [[ALoadOfbull man-bull]]" who was sent to aid St. Alessia (as part of her BargainWithHeaven) in her war against the [[AbusivePrecursors Ayleids]]. It is possible that he was simply a talking, winged bull.

** Apart from Meowth, very few other Pokemon are capable of using human speech and even then, most of those use telepathy. These telepathic Pokemon also mostly appear in the movies (usually as the stars of their movies). Only a select handful of other Pokemon that are capable of talking have appeared in the anime proper. These include a Gastly (physically talking), a Lapras (Telepathy), a Lucario (telepathy), Slowking (talking) and a Ralts (telepathy).

** Alex was trained to "understand" the English language, and seemed capable of cognitive thought and even emotion, revolutionizing scientific views of animal intelligence.

** The extent of Koko's intelligence is debated, but she appears to have intelligence equivalent to that of a small child. She's displayed the capability of assigning names to objects she's not been taught a sign for (such as combining the signs for "finger" and "bracelet" to refer to a ring), a understanding that objects still exist when she can't see them (sounds simple, but this is a big thing for animals), and appears to have a concept of beauty (she apparently has signed "ugly" before when talking about humans). She's also repetitively asked to have a baby gorilla, and has taken care of several pet cats, even mourning when they died.

* Some real-life animals are smarter than was once thought possible for animals, to the point of being capable of communicating in simple sentences, most famously Alex [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alex_%28parrot%29 Alex the talking parrot]], and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koko_(gorilla) Koko, a female gorilla]] (though the latter uses sign language because Gorilla's vocal cards are not capable of human-like speech.)
