* ''ComicBook/BlackMoonChronicles'': Any lord of high enough standing employs at least one mage if they're smart about it, since not being prepared against the enemy employing magic against them could cost them their heads in this war-torn setting.

* [[RealityWarper Reality-warping]] mage ''Mr Mxyzptlk'' from the ''ComicBook/{{Superman}}'' comics is a CourtJester in his home dimension. The mage thing probably isn't a big deal there because everyone in his world has similar powers.

* Marwort the Illustrious was this to the Kingpriest in ''{{Dragonlance}}'', despite the latter's well-documented FantasticRacism towards wizards (it only worked out because Marwort swore never to use magic without the Kingpriest's permission, and then never in his presence). Other wizards, of course, considered him a traitor. Later on [[EvilSorcerer Fistandantilus]] took the job for his own ends.
* A variant of this recurs in the Literature/{{Deryni}} works. Since the Haldane kings need help (including a magical ritual) to access their powers, one or more other Deryni serve this function. It starts with Camber and his family discovering the Haldane Potential and helping Cinhil Haldane and his sons in the ''Legends of Camber'' and ''Heirs of Camber'' trilogies. Generations later, Donal Haldane uses the services of Deryni (including Alyce de Corwyn Morgan) and actually imprints instructions for his son Brion's ritual in the minds of Alyce and her son Alaric. The adult Alaric Morgan and Duncan [=McLain=] work together in this unofficial position for Brion's son Kelson.
