* 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.

At the 2017 ''Festival Of Honor'' there was a raffle for fans to call matches with Ian Riccaboni and Kevin Kelly, silver tickets being prerecorded, gold being live!

Who commentates may well change over the course of the series, such as in ''InitialD,'' where the commentators tend to be replaced by more skilled counterparts as the level of Takumi (and later Project D) continue increasing.

* In ''Manga/{{Yaiba}}'', usually Musashi ([[MiyamotoMusashi Yes, that one]]) will end up doing this. Justified since as a 400 years old swordmaster he knows a lot of techniques and fighting styles that Sayaka or Gerozaemon may not know.

** This role first fell to ''Yamcha,'' who was stalking the heroes so that he could steal the Dragonballs, and had heard of just about everyone they ran into. It's later picked up Roshi, then Kami, then Piccolo or Vegeta, who explain to their unknowing peers (and the audience) how amazing it is that Goku can manipulate his energy in whatever way he does. In the very last parts of the Buu arc and GT, it's the old [[PhysicalGod Kaioshin]] doing this.

* Two of the most famous commentators in boxing are HBO's Larry Merchant and Showtime's Al Bernstein. If it's a three-man crew (typically on HBO), the third man will usually be a trainer or boxer, sometimes retired, sometimes active. This has run the gamut from [[SoCoolItsAwesome So Cool He's Awesome]] (Roy Jones Jr.), SoOkayItsAverage (Emmanuel Steward and Max Kellerman), [[SoBadItsGood So Bad He's Good]] (George Foreman), to So Bad He's Horrible (Lennox Lewis). Surprisingly, real life {{Cloudcuckoolander}} Mike Tyson is actually very knowledgeable and surprisingly competent.

* ''UsefulNotes/FormulaOne'' history is famous for the pair of British commentators Murray Walkers and James Hunt, who were working together for the BBC coverages during 1979-1993. Walkers was a LargeHamAnnouncer who had the unique British accent and delivery. Hunt, meanwhile was a ComicallySerious because of his low voice and his armor-piercing criticism toward drivers.
