** ''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]]).

* In ''Kinnikuman Muscle Fight'', a doujin fighting game based on ''Manga/{{Kinnikuman}}'', most of Atlantis's special attacks are assists from Black Hole, Stecasse King, the Mountain, and/or Mr. Khamen. Pentagon is assisted by Black Hole in about half of his moves, including supers. Since most of the characters operate in tightly-knit groups, nearly all of them appear as assists in someone else's super moves, as well.

Compare/contrast the NonPlayerCompanion, who also assists the PlayerCharacter but sticks around them the entire time. See also TheCameo and ABoyAndHisX. Compare {{Mons}} and SummonMagic, where the entire point is summoning others to fight for you. One step up from this is for the character to be actually controllable in some way, turning them into the "puppet" part of a PuppetFighter. Contrast ItsUpToYou, where you do everything without any kind of help.

** Since the first game in the series pokéballs have been a staple item. They summon a Franchise/{{Pokemon}} when thrown, who then proceeds to assist its summoner in some manner (with a few exceptions). They can hold from common regular Pokémon to rare [[OlympusMons legendary Pokémon]] who usually wreak havoc on the battlefield with powerful attacks.

* The UrExample is in Data East's ''VideoGame/AvengersInGalacticStorm''; four characters (players can have Iron Man, Thor, Vision, or Giant Man as the assist) 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.
