* Momo in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' is a flying [[MixAndMatchCritters bat-like lemur]]. In contrast, Appa is a 10-ton flying bison who has been subject to serious [[ADayInTheLimelight personalized stories]] and has a strong century-long bond with the titular character, making him more of a life-long companion than a Team Pet. Momo's presence or absence is a firm indicator to how light-hearted and whimsical or serious and edgy the current story is.\\
\\
To compound to it all, his character was originally designed to be a little robot named "MOMO 3" (when [[WhatCouldHaveBeen the original draft set the series in a futuristic environment]]) and Co-creator Bryan Konietzko has admitted that he based him on his childhood cat Buddy.

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': In that universe, cats are used as defense tool PlagueZombie monsters, but the crew initially didn't have one due to CuttingCorners from MissioControl (unless one counts the scout that acts a lot like one). They eventually adopt a feral kitten during the mission, which means that it can only do the basics compared to a properly trained adult and spends the rest of the time being a CuteKitten.

* Ravage himself gets treated as the team pet by [[NaiveNewcomer Nautica]] in ''Comicbook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye''. She comes from a colony that doesn't have any beast-forms and therefore doesn't realize that he's fully sentient. Since she's a CuddleBug and he HatesBeingTouched, HilarityEnsues.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Literature/CircleOfMagic'' quartet, the four main characters had their dog Little Bear, which they rescued as a stray puppy in the first book from a couple of boys that were tormenting it. In the later sequel book, ''The Will of the Empress'', Little Bear has been left with a new student for company, so Chime, the living glass dragon that belongs to Tris, fills the role as Team Pet for the four.

* Kirara from Manga/{{Inuyasha}}, a two-tailed kitten {{youkai}} who can transform into a giant saber-tooth cat when needed.



* ''StarWars'': R2-D2 could be considered a Team Pet. An especially useful Team Pet, though.

* In ''Series/{{Primeval}}'' we get Rex, a Coelurosauravus from the Permian anomaly. He doesn't serve much purpose, except to hang out and look cute, possibly to counter all of the NightmareFuel.
** In the later seasons we also meet Sid and Nancy, a pair of mischievous Diictodon who were kept by Connor after their home anomaly closed. Despite being less important as characters, they seem to serve more purpose, as in one episode Sid escapes into the ARC and becomes trapped in a lab containing the [[MonsterOfTheWeek Future Fungus]], leading Connor to have to retrieve him and nearly freezing to death in the proces.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' Nibbler is the Team Pet, even if he is an AmusingAlien and IntellectualAnimal. However, in the Season 6 episode "That Darn Katz!", he gets promoted to full-fledged member of the Planet Express crew. The characters still treat him as a pet though because he enjoys it.

* ''TopGear'' Dog, a Labradoodle bitch belonging to Richard Hammond who occasionally features on the show. Since she throws up whenever she gets in a car (which they discovered after [[HilarityEnsues taking her on a caravan holiday]]) her job is mainly to get in the way and sleep on the studio floor.

* Cerberus from ''{{Eyeshield 21}}''. Although he's not cute and is primarily interested in savaging and eating the Devil Bats. There's also Butaberus, and the little Devil Bat, the actual team mascot, who doesn't physically appear in the story but handles meta explanations, omake and reader questions. There's also Baby Devil Bat, which is just a smaller, student-like version of the Devil Bat.
