* The young sidekicks in ''Film/{{Sanjuro}}'' are between this and BumblingSidekicks. While they royally screw up a lot, they get the job done smoothly whenever they follow Sanjuro's advice. On the villains' side, Muroto is this to Kikui.

* [=R2D2=] in ''Franchise/StarWars'', particularly if viewed as specifically C-3PO's sidekick. In the original trilogy, he hacks the Death Star main computer to show its internal lay-out and shut down the trash compactors, keeps Luke's X-wing flying, and functions as a spy and monitoring station. He's also shown a number of times to be particularly brave and determined. In the prequels, it's the same story again: repairing a ship in hard vacuum while other droids blow up around him, ''flying'', and once again hacking in the enemy's flagship.

** Of course, WordOfGod from Lucas himself has ([[FlipFlopOfGod sometimes]]) been that what we see aren't the true events, it's R2 telling the story to an alien race. It's entirely possible that he embellished a bit, especially since most of his biggest heroic moments had no organic witnesses.

** The Battle of Endor went from a disaster for the Rebels to victory simply because Chewie and two ewoks got the wild idea of hijacking an AT-ST in the ground battle. From there, the tables were turned on the Imperial ground troops, and then Han got the fake-out idea to lure the Imperials into opening the shield generator bunker, which then led to the bunker being blown sky-high, which then opened the way for the besieged Rebel fleet in orbit to do what they came there to do: destroy the Second Death Star.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Igor]]'', the titular Igor is this to his idiotic master Doctor Glickenstein. However, due to abiding by [[TheIgor stereotypes]], Glickenstein [[IDontPayYouToThink refuses to listen to his advice]] and ends up blowing himself up early on in the movie.
