Whenever she's involved in something, Yuyuko is often shown to have figured out everything from the start, while Youmu acts as TheWatson.

Presumably Yuyuko plays along with this arrangement [[TricksterMentor so she can mess with her servant.]]

* ''VideoGame/XCOM2''[='s=] ''Alien Hunters'' DLC reveals that the player Commander unknowingly served as this to head scientist Dr. Vahlen in ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown''.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, Sheogorath, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[MadGod Madness]], has one in his chamberlain, Haskill, who also doubles as the OnlySaneMan within Sheogorath's realm, the [[EldritchLocation Shivering Isles]]. Despite his best efforts, it is rather difficult to truly "mind" a god of madness. His assistance is instrumental in the main plot of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'''s ''Shivering Isles'' expansion.

** The Necron commander Nemessor Zandrekh, and his long-suffering aide-de-camp and enforcer Vargard Obyron. Zandrekh is a consummate tactical genius who was instrumental in promoting his dynasty's fortunes during the ancient Necron civil wars. Unfortunately his cognitive processing circuits were damaged during his long hibernation into modern times, and while his genius is undimmed he can't tell the difference between the present and the past anymore, believing he's still fighting the civil wars against rival dynasties whatever new enemy he comes up against. Obyron, on the other hand, is perfectly aware of the situation, but as an indentured subordinate he was programmed for absolute loyalty to Zandrekh and so has to make the best of things and sort out any anomalies caused by Zandrekh's delusions. Usually this involves making sure that "honored prisoners" kept alive by Zandrekh according to ancient rules of engagement are conveniently disposed of via "little accidents" or "while they were trying to escape".

* In Anime/Pokemon, Pikachu often acts as this role in comparison to his other party members eccentricities to the point where he's become the OnlySaneMan of Ash's team in ''XY'' and ''Sun and Moon''. Mallow plays this role amongst the main cast, especially when dealing with Lana's bizarre stories, Togedamaru's antics and Rotom's....detective failures.
