* Chao of the ''VideoGame/DistortedTravesty'' series acts as MissionControl alongside her brother Jeremy. She seems to have more free reign than Jeremy does, however, and so is able to take on a form similar to that of [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Navi]] to be used as an enemy scanner (to provide information about attack patterns and weapon weaknesses). In the third game, she gets kidnapped when the party travels [[spoiler:into the Vault]], thus rendering the player unable to scan enemies for a time.

* Iwazaru of ''VideoGame/{{Killer 7}}'' drops into view on occasion (he hangs from a bungee cord) and informs the title assassins of what they need to do next, often by insulting them (for example, when he complains about MASK DE Smith, you have to switch to MASK to advance). The ending [[spoiler:reveals that Iwazaru is Kun Lan in disguise, explaining why someone supposedly loyal to the Smiths has so little respect]]. Aside from the gimp, the Smiths travel with an entire retinue of 'quirky' exposition ghosts. Easygoing Travis ([[NoMoreHeroes no relation]]) also offers hints and is generally more trustworthy, Kess Bloodysunday is a shell-shocked [[UndeadChild ghost kid]] who tells you how to beat the bosses, and severed head Susie... [[AxCrazy the less said the better]].

* ''VideoGame/FantasyLife'' inverts this -- Flutter, by being clueless of Life in Reveria, prompts other [=NPCs=] to explain details that the player character would have already known about.

* Peppy Hare of ''Franchise/StarFox'' fame, of course. It's pretty much his entire role: "[[DoABarrelRoll To barrel roll]], press Z or R twice!"

* ''VideoGame/{{Starlancer}}'' has Moose, your WSO sitting behind you in the cockpit and giving you (quite timely) warnings about incoming missiles or enemy fighters on your six. Completely justified in that he's supposed to be running the fighter's sensors and electronics, so he's pretty much doing his job.

** Ezlo from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMinishCap Minish Cap]]'' who, in addition to being your NiceHat, also serves as a means to shrink down to [[LittlePeople Minish]]-size.

* The hovering camera droid, Holocam-E, AKA, "Cammy" is this in ''StarWarsDroidworks''. She serves to track the audio/visual feed of the droid you've built and sent out on missions, and for some reason speaks in a southern accent. Unlike most examples, Cammy can actually be muted in-game (and is even compassionate about that if you examine the mute button).

** The first game sort of has one as well, in a text message window that occasionally pops out of the HUD to give you warnings and such. The remake, ''Pegasus Prime'' swaps that out for an AI Biochip that serves the same purpose, but is nowhere near as funny as Arthur.

* ''VideoGame/TheJourneymanProject'' has two of these (one in a remake of the 1st.)
** The AI Biochip is shown in The Journeyman Project: Pegasus Prime, replacing the text message window in Turbo. She pretty much serves as the game's Captain Obvious, has the catchphrase "Extreme Caution Advised", and congratulates Agent 5 only once.
** Arthur appears in Buried in Time and Legacy of Time. He has quite a few historical facts and occasionally makes ''ShoutOuts'', though this is lampshaded in that his creator's obsession with 20th century media "corrupted" Arthur.
