* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'' has the Beastmaster class. Also, the Dragoon class receives a pet wyvern.
** While the MMO is the TropeNamer, ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' started the tradition. In addition to the Trainer class which used [[WhipItGood whips]] and could capture and control enemy monsters, the archery-focused Hunter could summon animals to achieve random effects.
*** The GBA remake retroactively named the class Beastmaster, just to drive it home.

* Grineer Drahk Masters in ''Videogame/{{Warframe}}'' train and use the pig-like Drahks in combat, which they can endlessly summon. Drahk Masters wear a heavy suit with padded arms much like police K9 trainers, allowing them to deflect the player's melee blows from in front; paired with their throwing mace which can [[BlastingItOutOfTheirHands disarm you]], they can become highly obnoxious foes. Similarly, there's the Hyekka Masters, who utilize cat-like creatures to attack their enemies. [[PlayerCharacter The Tenno]] train Kubrows, a monotreme dog-like creature, and augment them with shield generators to assist them in combat, albeit only one Kubrow at a time.
