* Paladine in the ''{{Dragonlance}}'' novels is a good version of this trope. Consider how every single time Tasslehoff prays to him in the ''Legends'' trilogy, Paladine immediately gives Tass ''exactly'' what Tass asked for, never quite what Tass ''had in mind'', but exactly what Tass ''needed''.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/MobiusFinalFantasy'', Echo is a fairie who follows travellers around before luring them to their deaths with promises of treasure. She's also known for never physically appearing to her victims, but Wol is able to see her, and she can even stop time so they can talk without anyone else knowing. She provides helpful, annoying guidance, as well as using her magic powers to pep him up in battle or sic him on wacky invading aliens.

Added DiffLines:

* Bill Cipher from ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' may be considered one. Albeit an arguably darker take on the trope.
