* In the Japanese PS3 version of ''VideoGame/NiNoKuni'', fairy comedians Smiley and Surly are this kind of comedy duo. (In fact, ''all'' fairies seem to be Kansai-accented comedians to the point where their souls are literally ''made of comedy.'') In the dub, although there's still shades of their manzai roots (they still have an obvious StraightManAndWiseGuy dynamic, and they decide to act out a scene), it's been [[{{Woolseyism}} localized]] as a dry [[BritCom British comedy-style sketch]] in the vein of ''MontyPython''.

* Creator/RickyGervais (tsukkomi) and KarlPilkington (boke) have this exact dynamic in their routines on ''Radio/TheRickyGervaisShow''. Karl, an "idiot", is brought in and asked to talk about various SeinfeldianConversation topics, which soon derail into [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} total nonsense]], at which point Ricky corrects him by shouting "[[CatchPhrase Don't. Talk. Shit.]]"

* In ''Manga/IchigoMashimaro'', Miu is the boke, while her usual tsukkomi is Chika. In one episode, Chika's trying to concentrate on homework, but Miu wants to know who'll be the straight man for her antics. She tries to get Matsuri to play the role instead, but she's too "boring" for it. Her other common tsukkomi is Nobue, Chika's older sister.

* In one of the substories in ''Videogame/{{Yakuza}}'', 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.
** In Haruka's chapter in ''[[VideoGame/{{Yakuza5}} Yakuza 5]]'', which takes place in Osaka, one of her substories 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.

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', [[spoiler:Flannel and Nishiki are this, respectively. What's interesting is that Flannel is sharply dressed (like a ''tsukkomi'') in contrast to Nishiki's more casual appearance.]]

** Not to mention she tended to make people ATwinkleInTheSky...And then, because it's [[MindScrew that kind of show]], she joined a secret Boke and Tsukommi ''underground political organization'' [[note]]They were partly that, but they also represent far right-wing Japanese ultra-nationalists, who complain about Japan's "peacetime boke" (in comparison to its [[ImperialJapan earlier attitude)]][[/note]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'' features a pair of would-be comedians who practice boke and tsukkomi routines (Their names? [[AbbottAndCostello Bud and Lou]]), as well as a [[PaperFanOfDoom paper fan]] that lets you [[HealingShiv cure party members of confusion by whacking them on the head]].

* ''DevilSurvivor2'', another ''MegaTen'' game, gives you the option of doing one of these in all Hinako's [[LevelUpAtIntimacy5 Fate route]] conversations. The protagonist is the boke, and Hinako (who is from Osaka) cheerfully plays along as the tsukkomi.
