* Pro wrestling announcing teams typically consist of a play-by-play announcer (Gordon Solie, Jim Ross, Joey Styles, Mike Tenay, etc.) who focuses on what's going on, and a color commentator (Bobby Heenan, Jerry Lawler, Tazz, Don West, etc.) who focuses on why: the wrestlers' backstories, why they're prone to certain styles of wrestling, and the physical toll of specific moves. The color commentator is usually an ex-wrestler, or has some other special knowledge of the physical side of wrestling. Some color commentators also root for the heels and defend their actions, pouring more fuel on the audience's outrage (Heenan was a heel manager as well as a commentator, so of course he did this).

* IWA Mid-South and early Wrestling/RingOfHonor the position as Dave Prazak's partner at the commentary table was regularly filled by a pool of wrestlers. You never knew who'd you get beyond knowing that if they did it once they'd probably be on commentary again, eventually. Later ROH made an official ruling that if wrestlers wanted to stick around after their matches they had to stay at the commentary table.

* It's British cousin ''Series/RobotWars'' had Craig Charles as host and commentator. He would gleefully crow over the destruction and talk up the house bots. On the other hand he would give attention to particularly good, or bad, contenders.

* Media coverage for ''YuYuHakusho'''s Dark Tournament was provided first by a fox girl named Koto, then by a [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kerai/1126151303441.jpg mermaid-like demoness named Juri.]] Both carried microphones, and provided peppy commentary over the bloodbath ensuing before them.

* Kage Houshi often commentates for fights in ''FlameOfRecca,'' to the point where, during the arena arc, she is invited to be a guest commentator at the play-by-play table. This is particularly egregious because Recca's team was missing a member and they had to recruit a former villain for the role. Since Kage Houshi is Recca's mother, quite skilled in ninjutsu and literally unkillable, it boggles the mind why she didn't just step in that role instead. Granted having your Mom win your battles for you may be emasculating for the average shonen hero...

Added DiffLines:

* Every match in rank wars in ''Manga/WorldTrigger'' has three commentators to explain the actions that happen and the tactics behind such actions. This is justified as rank wars are used by Border to train the tactical prowess of their agents.

* ''VideoGame/MadWorld'':
** The game features two color commentators calling the battle as though it's a ProfessionalWrestling match. One, Howard, is a professional commentator with a sports-announcer voice and [[AnythingThatMoves depraved tastes]]; the other, Kreese, is a former [[BloodSport Deathwatch]] player who opens every boss battle by reciting the injuries that boss inflicted on him when they fought.

** There is also the [[TournamentArc Tenkaichi Budoukai]] [[NoNameGiven announcer]], who is friends with most of the main characters. He's just a normal guy, but is [[GenreSavvy knowledgeable enough]] to know that [[FakeUltimateHero Mr. Satan]] is just a fraud. He also establishes the concept of a tournament arc in which the referee and the announcer are the same person.
