Needs a Better Description
- Various Legend of Zelda games have you summon Epona
- Wo W before patch 2.0 mounts were summoned via items kept in your inventory. Post 2.0 those items taught spells to summon one. There are well over 100 different mounts and Achievements to Gotta Catch Them All.
- Dynasty Warriors 5 and up give you a whistle button to summon their mount which can be recieved by equiping a saddle item or Hijack one off some other officer.
- Pokémon the fly and surf skill can instantly make one of your Mons into a makeshift mount. This becomes humorous when the Pokemon in question is actually smaller than the protagonist.
- As well as receiving a bike midway though your adventure Really handy with the Quick Select function.
