Winning entries

First Place

In-game name: Wolf

Best memory with my pet: 

When I first got my pet, I had a “What the heck is that moment” when I saw this on my screen.

When the egg was hatched, I was charmed. He was this cute little fuzzball devil just wanting to be hugged!

Now he is all grown up and goes with me on many adventures. 

Watching his first battle, where he took on enemies bigger and stronger than him by doing backflips then launched himself feet first straight into an enemy’s chest makes me a proud parent. 

Here we are chilling at Bestia on one of our downtimes. He likes playing with the other pets roaming around the arena. 

Look how big he’s grown! He’s so adorable, no one believes he packs a punch!

Duty calls! We are off on another adventure! 

Second Place


My name is Honest Julia Everhart and I’m here with my trusty friend, Sir Maximus. Max has been travelling around the spiral with me for about a year, saving my behind from countless enemies. I won’t lie, he’s a bit full of himself, but I wouldn’t trade him for any other pet in the spiral!

Third Place

very witch must have her black cat.

But also mighty warrior need one so she was borrowed…

To cuddle then with you on couch,

after a long oversea fights,

with purple glow and fluffy toes

she warms you even the coldest nights.

Aisha Dove

Fourth Place

Hiya, this is my swashbuckler’s outfit with my Ghost of Yuletide Past pet. This is one of my favorite pets in the game because I love the red color of it and spectres are one of my favorite creatures in both Pirate101 and Wizard101. My best memory with my pet is when I finally trained it up to use in combat with me. My pirate’s name is Matthew, thanks for hosting!


I’ve been a part of AoS since we started the site back in 2013 and I’ve loved to watch it grow over the past 8 years, you can find me in the Marleybone Admiralty on the Isle of Dogs.
