* In VideoGame/MUGEN, [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} May]] is a rather unique character. Depending on which version of her you are using, either her attacks are weak or she can't attack on her own at all. She has to rely on her Pokemon- [[PlayingWithFire Torchic]], [[BigCreepyCrawlies Beautifly]], [[GreenThumb Bulbasaur]], and [[CuteKitten Skitty]]- in order to win the fight.

* In VideoGame/MUGEN, ''VideoGame/{{ARMS}}'', Byte the robot policeman is assisted by his robot dog partner Barq. Barq follows Byte around and occasionally throws out a punch and Byte can jump on his head for a huge jump while reflecting incoming punches. Also in Rush Mode, Byte and Barq [[CombiningMecha form together]] with Barq firing explosive shots. Barq can also be punched and he'll be knocked out for a few seconds after taking too much damage.

* The UrExample is in Data East's ''VideoGame/AvengersInGalacticStorm''; four characters (players can have Comicbook/IronMan, [[Comicbook/TheMightyThor Thor]], Comicbook/TheVision, or [[Comicbook/AntMan 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.

* 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/Jean Grey}} 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]].
