* ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedOdyssey'' allows you to summon Phobos from any outdoor area in the game, so long as it isn't a restricted area. [[FridgeLogic This includes tiny deserted islands you had to swim to]]. Sadly the game doesn't let you ride Phobos onto or off of [[CoolBoat the Adrestria]], which would have explained how Phobos gets to you in the local port[[labelnote:*]][[BigEntrance As well as let you do dramatic disembarkments onto the dock]][[/labelnote]].

* In any ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda'' title in which Link's CoolHorse Epona appears, there will be some means to summon her by playing or whistling her theme. Similarly, in ''SkywardSword'', Link summons his Loftwing by jumping off the edge of a FloatingContinent and whistling.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]]'', you can use a flute to summon Latias or Latios anywhere in the overworld and have them fly you around, whether or not they're in your active party (indeed, they'll ferry you around even if you've traded them away!)


* When ''EarthwormJim'' reaches the end of the level, he produces a portable rocket from his back pocket, mounts it (it's not unlike a Harley in execution), and hurtles off to the end of the level. In the second game, it sometimes flies off without him, and the hapless hero ''calls a cab'' to get to the next level!

* The ability to summon cars exists in all the ''VideoGame/SaintsRow'' games. In [[VideoGame/SaintsRow1 the first]], it even summons TheDriver along with the car to chauffeur you around. In ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird'', the Boss can call a homie who will bring any ground vehicle from their garage to their location--even if that vehicle was just blown to smithereens by the Boss themselves (though there is a {{Cooldown}} on this ability). In [[VideoGame/SaintsRowIV]] your summoned vehicle simply appears around you, since it takes place inside a computer simulation.
