* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro'' trilogy pairs the eponymous character up with [[PluckyComicRelief Sparx the dragonfly]], who compensates for being TheLoad in combat by having wisecracks for every situation.
** This behavior pattern makes it a CrowningMomentOfAwesome when Sparx [[spoiler: actually K.O.'s one of the more annoying bad guys with a single punch (granted said antagonist wasn't much bigger than Sparx himself, but it was still a cathartic moment).]]

* ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' has Phoenix Wright (sarcastic, literal hero) and Maya Fey (happy-go-lucky oddball). Eventually he encounters Pearl who is less odd, but only because she's a little girl - her personality is equally upbeat, but more bolshy than Maya. And Maya's SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute, Ema, is even more happy-go-lucky and even more naive.
** And when Franziska von Karma, the very serious, whip-happy prosecutor, tags along with you in the third game, her general misunderstanding of American/Japanese culture and many things outside her area of expertise lead to much the same effect as if she was Maya.
** And it's taken pretty much to the extreme with ultra-sarcastic, refined Edgeworth and his sidekick Gumshoe, who's like [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Doctor Zoidberg]] without the lobster.
*** Edgeworth gets multiple sidekicks throughout his own game. Gumshoe and Franziska are the only returning characters to fill this role while the most prominent of the new characters is Kay Faraday, a self proclaimed Great Thief. 2 different stewardess take the role as well during the second case as you are on a plane mid-flight. There's also [[spoiler: 13 year old Franziska and new cop Gumshoe who are paired with Edgeworth during a flashback case while he still strived for perfection leading to a slightly diffrent feeling then their present day selves. Also Franziska is the butt of many short jokes during this time]]
*** Although this relationship is inverted in ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'', where Ema is now [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute substituting]] for Gumshoe, and shows open disdain for new prosecuting attorney Klavier, who she describes repeatedly as a "glimmerous fop". As for Apollo, he regularly works with Trucy Wright in this game and ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies''.

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' provides us with Roy and Elan (at times, V, Durkon and occasionally Haley play the serious role, while Belkar also plays the goofy role). Also provides us with the villainous subversion: Xykon is the main villain, and just likes to goof around, while Redcloak is the serious one who makes all the plans and preparations. Strangely, the "goofy" one is the more powerful one.
** Xykon is mostly just bored, unable to sleep, and can only spend so many hours working on artifacts, posing him with the problem of how to spend those remaining hours. Up until Xykon gets ticked off when [[spoiler: Redcloak loses Xykon's SoulJar when V attacked]]. Xykon then proceeds to become more serious.
* The title characters from ''Webcomic/TriangleAndRobert.''
* ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'' provides us with [[IdiotHero Fighter]] who is a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} with a ''very'' literal take on things (metaphors don't exist for him), and [[PsychoForHire Black Mage]] who is... ''all'' of TheLancer traits listed at the top of this page.

** Aveline is the best at playing the StraightMan without even knowing it. Varric can do it too, but [[GenreSavvy he knows it]]. For the rest you're going to have to [[OnlySaneMan step up for sanity]] sooner or later.
