* ''VideoGame/MondayNightCombat'' has announcer Mickey Cantor for the titular BloodSport. He's apparently hated so much that there have been three attempts on his life, two of which have been successful. The sequel replaces him with GG Stack and Chip Volvano. GG is a professional - yet extremely dysfunctional - commentator and (usually) the StraightMan, and Chip is the somewhat dim, yet much more well-adjusted former pro.
--> '''GG:''' "So, Chip, are you going anywhere during the break?"
--> '''Chip:''' "The wife and I are spending the week in St. Kit's with the President and First Lady. After which, I'll jet to Paris to receive France's highest civilian honor for my contributions to broadcasting. And you?"
--> '''GG:''' ". . . I'm going to move my bed into the living room and judge a pizza eating contest at the mall."

* Usually not present in ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha''... but since the ''[=StrikerS=] [[ComicBookAdaptation manga Special]]'' featured a Armed Forces sponsored televised match between Nanoha and Signum, this was practically required, with Hayate stepping up to plate for the role together with someone named Serena Aruz from Armed Forces Publicity.
** In ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaViVid'', the mock battle is overseen by Megane Alpine and [[spoiler:Sein]], who comment on some of the tactics at play, especially Nanoha's.

** However, it's also not uncommon at all for duelists to explain their own moves. In fact, they actually do that more often than the non-duelist characters!

* Whichever characters aren't dueling in ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' become de facto commentators. This has the odd effect, in the original series, of making some of the nonduelists look like they know more about the game than some of the duelists. (In ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', ''everyone'' is a duelist, so it's not as big of a problem.)
** In ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'', there's a twist. Godwin, Jeager, and Mikage, who literally have the entire city bugged, will [[SurveillanceAsThePlotDemands pull up duels on a giant screen]] in order to do this.
*** There's also an official announcer in ''5D's'' in the Duel Arena.

* In ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'', Kotori is basically the ultimate trigger for this trope as her voice actress' contract makes it so that she will always be there to question what just happened, no matter where is the dueling place, meaning someone will always have to be a Combat Commentator for her. A role that is usually taken by Astral if no one else is around - she becomes able to see Astral once the other kids are being [[PutOnABus made unable to follow Yuma for whatever reason]], exactly so that she can retain her role as the Combat Commentator trigger, with Astral being the one who explains things to her.
* In ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'', Ayu and Futoshi acts as the trigger, while their smarter friend Tatsuya becomes the Combat Commentator.
