Best Animal Companions in film?


Pathfinder First Edition General Discussion


What are the best/favorite examples of Animal Companions in film?

My list is fairly short. It includes Ladyhawke and The Beastmaster. The other ones are mostly dog and horse, and none of them is much like a Druid.

Does Gamera count as an animal companion?

Technically, Mothra counts, too. Those two itty-bitty priestesses are her co-Druids.


Ben, from Grizzly Adams!

Mr. Ed and Wilbur Post ? Lassie and Timmy ? Charlie the Lonesome Cougar ? Mad Max's dog ?


A shame you limited it to film.

I was thinking about Dogmeat from Fallout.

Scarab Sages

Jean-Francois and the Beast of Gévaudan from Brotherhood of the Wolf. More of a Ranger and animal companion situation, but still a pretty bad ass AC


Maythayus (aka The Rock) and his overly smart camel in The Scorpion King?

Though I suppose that'd be more a bonded mount then an AC... but the camel had personality!


Everyone from the Golden Compass.

Tarzan had Cheetah the chimp in the old B&W movies.

Grizzly Adams and his best friend Bear.

Korrah in Legend of Korrah rides a cool bear dog thing.

Grand Lodge

Turner and Hooch - dog
Cujo - dog
Ace Ventura 1&2 - various
Free Willy - orca
Tom-Yum-Goong - elephant
Life of Pi - tiger
Avatar - Alien bird thing

Han Solo had Chewbacca. Even after Anthropomorphic Animal happened.

The animal sidekick seems to be a thing for a lot of Disney characters.

Bond villains go to huge lengths to keep their shark companions nearby.


San was a human animal companion to the wolf goddess Moro in Princess Mononoke.


Speed Racer: Chim-Chim
"A dog and his boy" (movie)
George of the Jungle and various (ape, elephant, tucan, ...)
Mr. Peabody
Dexter's Laboratory: monkey got his own show
Power Puff Girls: Mojo-Jojo
"Ben"
Dog from "Hudson Hawk"
Inspector Gadget: The Claw's cat, the daughter's dog
Beer commercial: dog gets beer from the refrigerator, but does not give to master.
Mog from "Spaceballs"

and my winner...
* K-9 from Dr. Who

Chewbacca's a PC, no?

Sovereign Court

The new Riddick movie has an excellent wolf/thylacine companion.

Scarab Sages

Oh, hey, the chubby handler and the Rancor from Jabba's palace in Return of the Jedi.

Poor guy is heartbroken when his AC kicks it.


APPA!

also I'm a fan of Sam (the dog) in I am Legend
