There's not much positive I can write about Sonic Adventure, but Sonic's middling foray into 3D platforming did give us the greatest character in the franchise. I'm talking about Big the Cat, the lovable fishing feline. Who wouldn't like to relax with that giant furry creature?
Now, now. I don't want to hear any wisecracks about the quality of Bubsy's adventures. Sure, they might be garbage games, but bobcats need love too! Bubsy is just a good boy trying to find acceptance in a cruel world that puts out shovelware like Bubsy 3D.
Sure, Cait Sith might be a robot of a cat riding a stuffed toy moogle, but it doesn't make the character any less lovable. The Final Fantasy VII character has one of the more interesting plot developments in the beloved RPG, and he's easily one of the best video game cats.
Not all cats have special powers like Gravity Rush's Dusty. This mysterious creature gave Kat the ability to manipulate gravity, and certainly deserves a good belly scratch for doing so.
I'm not quite sure if the Katz in Tales of Symphonia are cats or just furries, but either way I won't judge them. Either way, these cuties host searches and will give the player rewards for completing them.
There are a lot of adorable creatures in Ni no Kuni (I mean, have you seen Drippy?), and "His Meowjesty" King Tom is no exception. He's the first monarch of the Other World that Oliver meets on his journey, and despite his early appearance, he's a fan favorite character.
Namco Bandai's Mappy might star a cute mouse cosplaying as a policeman, but he's going up against some dangerous cats. The boss cat is named Nyamco (Goro in North America), and while he might be a bad guy in the game, I'm sure he's still a very good boy.
Sure, Morgana can be annoying at times during Persona 5, but what other video game cat can turn into a bus? Exactly. Morgana is an awesome character, and he's one of the reasons why Atlus' latest RPG is so memorable.
Okay, so this game isn't actually out on PlayStation 4 and Vita yet, but everyone will be falling in love with Undertale's cast of characters very soon. Temmies are one of the game's cutest enemies, and they even run a shop that players can use. They're the only way the player can sell inventory, and are as helpful as they are adorable.
The original PlayStation mascots Toro and Kuro might not be used as often, but they are still pretty adorable. They most recently found their way into PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale and Street Fighter X Tekken as playable characters.
This is a bonus entry since it's hard to classify the weird bird-dog-cat thing that Trico is. Either way, the star of The Last Guardian is one of the few video game creatures to feel truly alive. He may not always listen, but as Brenda Romero said "why don’t you try getting on a giant f**king dog and see how that works out for you."
