He has Squirtle, Ivysaur, and Charizard, but [[MookChivalry can only use one at a time]]. The Trainer character is [[FridgeLogic a little bizarre]] since Pikachu and Jigglypuff are also playable characters, and have been since the first installment, but they don't have a Trainer controlling them; he seems to have been added to get a few more Pokémon in without [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters taking up too many character slots]].

* The main character of ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' has the power to psychically command invertebrates, such as insects, arachnids, and crustaceans. She has lots of fine control over them, to the point where she can summon them unconsciously to aid her when under stress. Another character has the power to transform dogs into huge, incredibly strong Lovecraftian monsters, but she can't control them mentally. Instead, she has to train the dogs to respond to words and whistled commands, otherwise they wreak havoc when she transforms them.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' keeps theD&D's Druid and Ranger options, and throws in a Summoner class who binds his life to his beast (known as an Eidolon). While the beast in question is technically a planar outsider, the Eidolon ([[MonstrousHumanoid traditionally]]) takes the form of an animal, and as the Summoner levels up, the Summoner adds more and more abilities to his Eidolon. And if you choose the Broodmaster Archetype instead of the standard class, you can make a horde of individually weaker Eidolons that still kick plenty of ass!

The [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orks]] also do this with Squigs, a non-sentient related Orkoid creature which has a tendency to attack their handlers from time to time.

* Hunters in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' can have animal companions that assist them in battle.
