* ''HajimeNoIppo'', being a series about boxing, has everyone playing Combat Commentator, from the coaches, to the spectators, to the announcers, to even the boxers themselves (though that's to the audience, not anyone else). When [[JerkAss Takamura]] and [[TheAce Date]] were stuck as this in one of Ippo's matches... [[HilarityEnsues Uhm. Oh, boy.]]

* 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.
