* The UrExample is in Data East's ''VideoGame/AvengersInGalacticStorm''; four characters (players can have Iron Man, Thor, Vision, or Giant Man if an Avenger is being played, or obscure characters Ultimus, Ronan, a Kree Sentry robot, or Captain Att-Las if an Kree character is being played, as the assist character) can be summoned by pressing all punch buttons when the meter is half full. Why Iron Man and Thor are assists instead of fully playable characters are another story altogether.

** ''VideoGame/XMenVsStreetFighter'': one of Sabretooth's attacks consists of Birdy jumping in from nowhere and shooting at the adversary with a burst of bullets from her {{BFG}}. Also used as a special attack in which she shoots at the adversary with even MoreDakka.

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' has four assist characters, dubbed "buddies", who can join Snake in his missions.
** D-Horse is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a horse]], albeit one that can be used to help Snake traverse areas quickly and stealthily by hanging off of his side. While [[FragileSpeedster fragile]], D-Horse will not raise suspicion among enemies when left by himself, and he can even defecate on command, his feces being very useful in making enemy vehicles slip and crash.
** D-Dog is a NobleWolf that can sniff out the locations of enemies, wild animals, plants, vehicles, weapons, and landmines. He can bark on command to distract enemies (who, like D-Horse, won't get suspicious if they see him by himself), can attack individual guards to keep them from noticing you, and can be upgraded to carry a knife to silently kill enemies (or a stun-knife if you prefer a non-lethal approach).
** Quiet is a sniper that can move stealthily through the battlefield at high speeds. She can use her ability to turn invisible to scout outposts, then take up a sniping post and pick off enemies on your command. As you increase your bond with her, you can equip her with a tranquilizer rifle for non-lethal takedowns and order her to attack enemies on her own to distract them.
** D-Walker is a customizable MiniMecha that combines many talents and strengths of the other buddies with the proper upgrades: you can ride on it like D-Horse, it can mark enemies like D-Dog, and it can fight enemies like Quiet. At the same time, however, it's not as stealthy as D-Horse, it's detection abilities are more limited than D-Dog's, and it doesn't have Quiet's precision. Enemies that see it will attack it on sight, and it's expensive to deploy, and even moreso to upgrade.

* The first ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' video game for the Sega Genesis had playable characters {{ComicBook/Wolverine}}, {{ComicBook/Cyclops}}, {{ComicBook/Gambit}}, and {{ComicBook/Nightcrawler}}, but also gave players the abiity to summon {{ComicBook/Rogue}}, [[AnIcePerson Iceman,]] [[WingedHumanoid Archangel]], and {{ComicBook/Storm}} once per level as backup. Most of them had attacks that [[SmartBomb cleared the screen]] or [[MegatonPunch did devastating damage]] to a single enemy; however, [[AnIcePerson Iceman]] would build [[InstantIceJustAddCold ice bridges]] across gaps or dangerous areas, and if you fell off the screen anyway (or got too far separated in a two-player game), {{ComicBook/JeanGrey}} would telekinetically [[IBelieveICanFly fly you to safety]], or your partner's side (though in the former case, not without [[CastFromHitPoints significant cost to your health]].
