** Tatl from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'' is a lot like Tinker Bell: particularly memorable for [[DeadpanSnarker her snark]], [[{{Tsundere}} poor attitude]] and general non-helpfulness. Fortunately, her audio comments are limited to a fairly inoffensive jingly sound. She was also unhelpful since she would just chide Link for not knowing how to fight enemies from ''Ocarina of Time'' instead of telling him how, at most giving you a vauge hint. This was changed in the 3DS remake, since the game no longer assumes you've played the previous game.

* ''SpyroTheDragon'' usually had a dragonfly named Sparx to help him out. But for anything beyond this little insect's ken, he also had the fairy Zoe and the Dragon Elders that helped him.

* Alyx Vance from ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}'' and episodes, serving as a counterpart to the player's HeroicMime and a genuine ActionGirl.

** In ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime 3'', Fleet Admiral Dane and Aurora Units 242 and 217 serve a similar role. In the previous two Prime games, Samus's {{Cool Ship}} would occasionally send hints on where to go next.

Added DiffLines:

* Ora in ''VideoGame/MarkOfTheNinja'', your literal ninja sidekick who's primary purpose is to instruct you how to play the game, offer tips on certain areas, provide the occasional bit of exposition, and speak in place of the HeroicMime protagonist. [[spoiler: She's also a hallucination brought about by the protagonist's {{Power Tattoo}}s, which are supposed to grant him superhuman abilities but eventually drive him insane.]]

* Hilariously, these are '''actual''' fairies in the ''[[AtelierSeries Atelier]]'' series; you run into one in the first game who explains how the fairies can be used to help around the workshop, and in ''Atelier Iris 1'' and ''Atelier Annie'', you have a fairy as part of the party whose primary purpose is to explain almost all game mechanics.

* In ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPartnersInTime Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time]]'', an anthropomorphic suitcase serves as both your ExpositionFaity and your inventory menu! He has a bad habit of making up adjectives to describe your situation. Like the [[EvilMinions evil minion]] Fawful from the previous ''Mario and Luigi'', his mannerisms are a parody of bad video game translations.
