The ninja dogs from Naruto, or Appa from Avatar, both are pretty awesome!

My favorite is Neko from K Project. She's very cute.

Does P-Chan from Ranma 1/2 count ? He is a human originally, but still, it's the cutest. And they did try to eat him once or twice.
But my personal favorite has to be Appa from Avatar:The Last Airbender. Okay it's not really an anime, but it's close. And Appa is huge, and you can fly on him. He has to be the best sidekick animal ever ! :D

My favorite anime animal sidekicks are Luna and Artemis from Sailor Moon. They both belong to Usagi and Minako respectively. If it wasn't for Luna and Artemis, they wouldn't be as strong. They helped guide the Sailor Scouts out of so many tough situations. Plus they have a little girl kitten named Diana. She's so cute<3!! But I digress. My favorite anime animal sidekicks will always be Luna and Artemis. Best anime nekos ever :3 *kitty face*
Luna and Artemis have always been the voices of reasons for Usagi,Minako, and all the Sailor Scouts. They're the best cats to have around whenever they were in trouble. They were always there for their Sailor Scouts. Luna,Artemis, and Diana are the best talking cats ever!

The only animal I remember being eaten was Boota from Gurren Lagann, and that was only his tail. However not one of my favorites.
I'm going with the unoriginal classic (because he's kind of right there) and say Ein from Cowboy Bebop. He is unlike other anime mascot simply because he can exist in real life. In doing so, he acts like a real animal, multiplying his level of adorable exponentially. I know mascots aren't technically supposed to do this but I make an exception.

Timcanpy counts? I love Tim! He's so cute (and a little... devilish). I think Fuu's flying squirrel (Samurai Champloo) was great; she always knew when to come at the right times... and when not to come.

The only one I can think of (not counting Pikachu, who is pretty much immortalized) is Blair from Soul Eater. She's pretty much all comic-relief... though she does show a serious side from time to time.

Does a meatbun count as an animal? It has a face~
If so, Meatbun from the 1/2 Prince manga has to be my favorite! He is, after all, a meatbun that eats other, inanimate meatbuns. He could quite possibly be eaten himself~
Surely the Ninja Dogs that Kakashi can summon count? They are some very cool sidekicks, and they hang out with Kakashi, so that gives them extra points right there...

Does Kon from Bleach count? Not only is he cute...but he also takes the role of anime pervert perfectly.
he doesn't get eaten...but the dog from Excel Saga suffers like no other...
Mine would have to be Tails from Sonic!
He's so cute!!!

I don't really have a favorite, but I'll thrown in some animals: Miu Miu and Takkun, the cats from FLCL.
Ooh, how about the bird in Cowboy Bebop, the one that belonged to Vicious? They sure made for a menacing duo, I think.
Let's see, Menchi from Excel Saga had a raison d'etre: to be a source of food. Though, she never did get eaten.

I like Happy and Mokona most, but a lot of the Pokemon are cute.

I'm rather fond of Nausicaa's pet fox/squirrel Teto <3
And yes, Pikachuuuu!

Mokona is essentially three things.
1. A character in a handful or CLAMP series.
2. CLAMP's official Mascot.
3. One of the actual members of CLAMP.

This one's not really a sidekick-- more like a gag, but I vote for Kuroneko-sama from "Trigun".
I know there are others I like, but I can't think of them at the moment.
And I want to know who this squirrel from "Inuyasha" is, too.
Call it karma. Call it luck. Me, I just don't give a... BOUNCE!

Is a teddy bear an animal?
Let's just say this thing is a bear!
Kon from Bleach!
I mean, he isn't reliable, he is VERY annoying. Who WOULDN'T want a sidekick like that?

Happy from Fairy Tail... hands down ^_^
I love the green dog thingy, Chunk, from Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt because of reasons... Anyway, when Chunk finally stars in his own episode, he gets blendered, fully digested, and excreted.
Honorable mentions for Timcanpy from D.Gray~Man, the Prinnies, and Blair from Soul Eater for all getting slain and eaten at some point.

I don't know if you'd consider them a "sidekick", but I love Mokona from both xxxHolic and Magic Knight Rayearth

Favorite animal sidekick? The nine tailed fox from xxxHolic, or Naga from the Legend of Korra.

Not really partial to too many American animal sidekicks (just my opinion, but the pantomiming and "yeah-yeah-yeah"ing dog of the 1970s and before just grates on my nerves... Scooby Doo and Muttley are exceptions, though, for some reason), but when it comes to anime, in my mind, you can't beat Pikachu :D The friendship between him and Ash was a little rocky at first, but there's nothing like seeing someone else's self-sacrifice and devotion to really change somebody's mind.
And while Chopper's not really a sidekick (being one of the main StrawHat Pirates and all), he's certainly an animal and one of my favorites. He tries, his voice is adorable (mostly in Japanese, which also means he's voiced by the same person as Pikachu XD), and... well, he certainly moves a LOT of merchandise... but this last reason is not why I like him XD
Oh yeah, and Yun the baby Wall Penguin from Toriko is a-squeaking-dorable. Particularly the newest episode with the Gourmet Shrine and the chitose candy ^.^
Oh man, almost forgot President Aria from ARIA the ANIMATION. He's a cat, but because he's a Mars cat, he's as intelligent as a human. He's also the president of a gondola company. What more could you want? :D

Wait a sec... squirrel in Inuyasha? I don't think Shippo counts as a sidekick animal and the only other one i can think of is Kirara. (yes, i probably misspelled the name.) Where was the squirrel?

I really love Neko from K Project. She's super cute. Haha <3 ;u; That's one of my recent favourites. C:
Kyubey ate himself. DOES THAT COUNT? LOL
Ioro from "School Rumble"!
FOR THE WIN!
