- Blackjack (Pegasus) – The Titan’s Curse
- Rats of NIMH – Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH
- Aslan (Lion) – The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
- Smaug (Dragon) – The Hobbit
- Buckbeak (Hippogriff) – Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
- Fawkes (Phoenix) – Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
