** ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomClashOfTheSuperheroes'' has several dedicated Assist Partners taken from both Marvel and Capcom libraries. In the arcade and Dreamcast versions, they can be chosen as the third team member and had a limited number of assists that varied by character. In the UsefulNotes/PlayStation, you can choose an assist from the main roster or the assist roster as your second partner, because of the 1on1 battles. Aside from this, CaptainCommando is assisted by Mac, Ginzu and Baby Head; [[VideoGame/{{Cyberbots}} Jin]] is assisted by [[HumongousMecha Blodia]] and ''VideoGame/MegaManClassic'' and Roll are assisted by Rush, Beat and Eddie.
** In ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2'' along with the Sabretooth, CaptainCommando, Jin and Mega Man examples, [[Franchise/ResidentEvil Jill Valentine]] can summon [[EldritchAbomination Tyrant]] and zombies; [[VideoGame/MegaManLegends Tron Bonne]] is assisted by her Servbots; and Servbot is assisted by... more Servbots.

* ''{{Manga/One Piece}} Gigant Battle'' and its sequel feature assist characters. You can pick up to three, and not only can you summon them in battle, but they also give you passive bonuses like increasing your damage output or health bar. Those passive bonuses depend on the character you chose to play as: usually, the stronger connection there is, the better the bonus, though putting two enemies together (Like Crocodile and Vivi) gives you a malus instead. Setting up certain teams (For example, four Straw Hats, or [[ChivalrousPervert Sanji with three beautiful ladies]]) can also give you additional bonuses on top of that. Long story short, choosing your assists in these games is very important.

** ''EndlessFrontier'' has the Personal Troopers who can perform assisting attacks to any character, and also helps in some of Haken's {{Limit Break}}s. ''EXCEED'' adds even more characters that join the party but aren't playable. But they can be "equipped" to perform assist attacks.
*** In ''ProjectXZone'', which uses a similar fighting engine to ''Endless Frontier'', each TagTeam unit can call an adjacent unit to perform an assist attack. They can also be equipped with an assist character, [[UpToEleven some of which bring out assist characters of their own]]...[[SerialEscalation and it's possible to call both an adjacent pair unit and an equipped solo unit]] [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown at the same time.]] On top of this, certain solo characters (Tron Bonne(''again''), Ulala, Devilotte and Valkyrie)) call in even more help on their attacks.
* ''{{Lunar}}'' games has the party accompanied by a baby dragon - Nall in the first game, Ruby in the second. Rather than directly participating in fights, they fly back and forth in the background of the battlefield, and occasionally jumps in at the end of a turn to assist in some way. Specifically, Nall sometimes revives fallen party members, and Ruby sometimes attacks enemies. If anyone in the party is suffering a status effect at the end of a fight in the first game, Nall also cures them automatically.

* VideoGame/CartoonNetworkPunchTimeExplosion takes the Assist concept one step further with Synergy Attacks, which happen when a certain character summons a specific Assist (i.e. [[WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien Kevin Levin]] and [[WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor Numbuh 4]], [[WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy Grim]] and [[WesternAnimation/{{Chowder}} Mung Daal]], [[WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor Captain Stickybeard]] and [[WesternAnimation/TheMarvelousMisadventuresOfFlapjack Captain K'nuckles]]).

** ''Brawl'' adds assist trophies to the mix. They function similarly to pokéballs, but they can summon all kinds of characters instead of being limited to one series, brining characters from a wide range of franchises both with and without playable representation in the series.

* In ''VideoGame/JumpSuperStars'' and its sequel ''Jump Ultimate Stars'', characters that take up 2 or 3 panels (or "Koma", as commonly called by the fans) are used as Support characters that can be summoned anytime in battle by tapping their frame on the DS's bottom screen (or using an assigned shortcut button in Jump Ultimate Stars). Support characters use a bar from the Special meter (which is also used for special attacks), and playable characters can also serve as Support characters in addition to the non-playable Support characters. Represents battle koma, minor characters (like [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Gaara]] and [[DragonBallZ Gohan]]) and characters who couldn't really fight (like [[Manga/DeathNote Light]] and [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Kon]]).
