* The doujin game ''EternalFighterZero'' features some assist characters: ** Akane Satomura can call her friend Shiko to attack her opponent, as a reference to the Striker System in ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' 99. ** Mai Kawasumi can summon a CuteGhostGirl to assist her in battle, as a reference to the Stand system in ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''. ** Misuzu Kamio, aside of her crow partner Sora, can also summon Yukito, the protagonist of ''VisualNovel/{{AIR}}'', to keep distance, and extend combos. ** Minagi Tohno fights on par with her best friend Michiru, you control Minagi directly, and Michiru via special moves.

* 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 ''[[Ultimate Ninja'' line of ''Franchise/{{Naruto}}'' fighting games features this; your assist character drops items for you during combat, and one of these items calls them to perform one of their special 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.

** Then there's Ichirin, whose strongest attacks actually come from a huge cloud spirit named Unzan. In ''Unidentified Fantastic Object'', Unzan supplies Ichirin's spell cards; he manifests as an enormous, bald, bearded head peering down from the top half of the screen, and attempts to punch the player (represented by large fist-shaped bullets) while also launching various other bullets. In ''Urban Legend in Limbo'', in which Ichirin is a playable character, Unzan manifests in order to punch the opponent, similar to a [[VideoGame/JojosBizarreAdventureAllStarBattle Stand]].
