This guide lists charm locations for every animal companion in the game. The purpose of this guide is to assist in filling your Zaishen Menagerie, but it can easily serve as a quick reference if you just want a specific pet.

Some pets may have charm locations that are dependent on having a specific quest active and/or completed. Since this is meant to be a general-purpose guide, those locations should not be listed here unless it is the only way to obtain the pet (e.g. Black Moa).
