Character Game Platform(s) Notes
Big Sonic Adventure Dreamcast A large, purple, hourglass shaped anthropomorphic cat with yellow eyes and long ears. Big is laid-back[1] and easygoing, which is reflected in his speech.[2] Strong but gentle[2] and a little slow,[3] he lives a normally peaceful life in the jungle with his best friend "Froggy".[2] He loves fishing, and he is never without his favorite rod and lure.[1]
Blanca, Rover Animal Crossing, Animal Crossing: Wild World, Animal Crossing: City Folk, Animal Crossing: New Leaf Nintendo GameCube (Animal Crossing), Nintendo DS (Animal Crossing: Wild World), Nintendo Wii (Animal Crossing: City Folk), Nintendo 3DS (Animal Crossing: New Leaf) Blanca (あやしいねこ, Ayashīneko, Suspicious Cat) is a recurring character of the Animal Crossing series, appearing in all games. She is a white cat who oddly does not have a face, so she will ask the player to draw on her face to create one. In the Japanese version, she is confirmed as a male, due to having no masculine or feminine features, however, in other versions, she is female.

Rover (みしらぬネコ, Mishiranuneko, Stranger Cat) is also a recurring character of the Animal Crossing series, appearing in all games. Although his role varies in each game, his job primarily is to set up the character, by setting the time and date, determining the gender and appearance, and even setting up a house for him/her by asking his friend, Tom Nook. His name is related towards dogs, but is meant to come from roaming, as he is a traveler.

Blaze the Cat Sonic Rush Nintendo DS Has been appointed as defender of the Sol Emeralds;[4] her role is similar to that of Sonic the Hedgehog and Knuckles the Echidna combined.[5] She is portrayed as calm and levelheaded, hiding her true feelings.[6]

Link the Cat The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Nintendo Wii, Nintendo GameCube Link the Cat is a cat and character of Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. He is the cat of Sera, a shopkeeper in Ordon Village who owns Sera's Sundries. The cat always has the name of the player; if Link is given a different name registration, the cat is given the same changed name. Interestingly, while Sera has six photos in her shop, only two of them are of her daughter Beth, while the other four are all of Link the Cat. He originally ran away from Sera, until Link catches a fish which he allows the cat to steal, which causes it to come back; it is then seen on lapping milk from a bowl at the counter of the shop. Link can also converse with Link the Cat in his wolf form.
Myau Phantasy Star Game Boy Advance, Master System, Mega Drive, PlayStation 2, Sega Saturn, Virtual Console Myau (ミャウ?) is an intelligent, talking, cat-like creature called a Musk Cat. Alis meets him in a pet store on Motavia, where the owner is trying to sell the Musk Cat for an exorbitant amount of money, but instead trades him in exchange for a valuable Laconian pot from Alis. Myau is on a mission to save his friend Odin, who has been turned to stone by the creature Medusa. He has the medicine to cure Odin, but cannot open the bottle (for he has no fingers) and so requests Alis' help to save him. Myau uses claws as weapons, can use stronger curative magic than Alis, and can disarm traps in dungeons. Musk Cats also have an interesting "reaction" to the Laerma nuts found on Dezoris, a fact which makes Myau even more valuable.
Mao Shadow Hearts: From The New World PlayStation 2 Mao (マオ?): Frank's master and good friend of Al Capone, Mao is most notable for being a giant talking cat with a penchant for alcohol. Out of all the main characters, only Johnny expresses finding this at all crazy. She tolerates little foolishness, especially from her former student, but can be compassionate and wise when it is called for. She also harbors a secret desire to be a movie star; her side quest actually revolves around her making a film in which she fights her way through a five-story pagoda against other giant felines who are parodies of famous action stars, such as Sammo Meow and Cat Morita, this is also the second reference to the film Game of Death within the series. Mao's element is Water, and she uses flasks of alcohol to fuel her Drunken Fist-style of fighting.
Spitz WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgames! Game Boy Advance • Gamecube • Virtual Console An anthropomorphic yellow cat who is about the same size as Kat & Ana. He is always squinting, and he wears goggles (pushed up over his forehead) and a blue jumpsuit which seems to be too big for him. He's good at jumping and he is rather more intelligent than Dribble, though he didn't remember to collect the large fare in Mega Microgame$. He also likes to play, as in the WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Party Game$ instruction manual, he encourages Dribble to stop working and play a round of games with him.
Tango Mega Man V Game Boy Tango (タンゴ Tango?, Tango) is a green robotic cat who assists Mega Man. He can transform into a buzzsaw and bounce randomly around the screen as long as his energy meter holds out. Tango makes a cameo appearance in Mega Man 10 when the player plays as Proto Man.

However, she is very forgetful, and does not realize that Ragna, 'the good guy', and 'Rawgnya', the criminal, are the same person, although sometimes she seems to know but does not care. She gives affectionate nicknames to every one of her friends, including Litchi, whom she calls "the Boobie Lady". She is also food-obsessed and enjoys taking naps, and eating boiled rice and steamed meat buns. She wears a large hooded coat that conceals her face but only exposes her glowing red eyes and a sharp row of teeth; her true face remains a mystery.
Willy Rockin' Kats NES A rising young jazz cat in New York City who goes by the stage name of "The Rockin' Kat".
