*''Manga/{{Senyuu}}'' is more or less centered around this type of comedy, with Alba acting as the "tsukomi" and pretty much everyone else being the "boke". Lym also fills the "tsukomi" role in volume 3.

* ''Manga/{{Yowamushi Pedal}}'': Ashikiba Takuto and Kuroda Yukinari are a StraightManAndWiseGuy duo. Izumida refers to the two as this, asking if they're "done with their manzai act" during a race.

* ''VideoGame/JakAndDaxter'' do this routine in certain situations. Upon setting out for a mission, Daxter will often make a complaint or dry remark about how dangerous it, whereas Jak focuses on the task at hand.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Story/AesirCrossWars'': One of the primary sources of comedy is Azazel (boke) being an idiot or a dick, and Azrael (tsukkomi) commenting sarcastically on it, before the two start bickering.
* ''Literature/TheSpectrumGame'': Azurine is TheDitz, playing the boke. Inigo ''kind of'' plays along as the tsukkomi, but he can be a bit of a GeniusDitz at times. This leaves Silas as the only full-time tsukkomi.

* ''Manga/SketDance'' is one giant Shonen-style BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine, quite arguably. Although all of the Sket Trio can be any of the two roles depending on the situation, Bossun and Himeko are able to pull off this act ''masterfully'', even when in their everyday interactions with each other.

Nozomi is an [[TheDitz optimistic idiot]] who is always trying to [[JumpedAtTheCall Jump At The Call]] while Rin is a [[GrumpyBear sensible realist]] who always points out the gaping flaws in Nozomi's plans.

* ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' features this in an omake, which has Yukio and her kohai trying to do a manzai. No one in Yukio's yakuza gang apparently gets the idea of slapstick, and it doesn't end well. Brass knuckles get involved.

* ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' features this in an omake, which has Yukio [[MafiaPrincess Yukio]] and her kohai trying to do classmate rehearsing a manzai. No one in manzai for school, though the classmate is clueless. Yukio's yakuza gang apparently gets bodyguard Ginji has two members of the idea [[{{Yakuza}} Washimine group]] perform an example, but when it's time for the ''tsukkomi'' to smack his partner, he actually clocks him hard enough to knock him down. Unfortunately, the ''boke'' is of slapstick, a much higher rank in the clan and it doesn't end well. Brass knuckles punishes his subordinate off-screen with knuckle dusters. Disturbingly, Yukio is quite amused, and Ginji thinks that's how Manzai is supposed to go. Later the police arrest the whole lot, and it's revealed Yukio's partner attacked her with a crowbar in the middle of practice because she feared that the act would get involved.violent again.

** In one of the first game's substories, Kiryu helps a man and his friend get back together for the act after a recent failure. Turns out the problem was that their roles were mixed up; the guy dressed in street clothes tried to be the boke but was the tsukkomi, and his friend who was dressed in a nice suit, which should have been the tsukkomi, was naturally the boke all along.
** One of Haruka's substories in ''[[VideoGame/{{Yakuza5}} Yakuza 5]]'' has her partake in a comedy routine after a duo breaks up. Her partner Haruo is the boke, and being the tsukkomi, she has to respond to each of his lines with the right phrase and timing. She'll occasionally give him a DopeSlap and kick him, and if the player manages to fill the laughter gauge completely, she'll pull out a PaperFanOfDoom out of nowhere and smack him with it. And her chapter takes place in Osaka to boot.

* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'''s Tiger Dojo, which you go through every time you screw up and die and get a Bad End, is set up much like this. Taiga Fujimura, the leader of the Dojo, is the resident tsukkomi, with Illyasviel von Einsbern being the resident boke who often has to be whapped upside the head with Taiga's shinai when she says something insensitive, unproductive or stupid.
