* The main series ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' games often have the player character teaming up with an NPC and their {{mon}}, usually in a dungeon. They're lost and you have to lead them out. Somehow, though, you still do most of the battling even though their mon helps you out. In one or two cases, the NPC rewards you afterward. The annoying thing: No using HM items while they're with you. So, no Surf, Fly, Dig, etc.
** When you have another trainer helping you in a battle, their Pokemon are AI controlled, but luckily, they don't have to survive the fight as long as you manage to win.
** In other situations, an NPC will ask you to take care of their Pokemon for a while (to keep it safe, deliver a message it's holding, etc.). Once the mission has been completed the player gives the Pokemon back (unless you don't feel like it; there's no time limit). Note that in some cases the Pokemon's owner will let you keep it if its Happiness is high enough.

* ''JeanneDArc'' for the PSP has several characters who join and then leave, but come back but the biggest example is [[spoiler:Liane, who poses as Jeanne and is burned at the stake in her place.]] But the second the longtime GuestStarPartyMember leaves, another identical party member replaces them.

* In the prologue to ''VideoGame/BravelySecond'', Yew's lifelong friends Janne and Nikolai join him on his quest to save Agnès. While their equipment is customizable, they don't gain experience points like Yew, which is a pretty obvious tip-off that they won't stick around for too long.

Later on, at the end of the yokai sidequest, [[spoiler:Ringabel]] joins you for the boss fight. He is not directly controlled by the player, instead functioning as an AssistCharacter by periodically attacking the boss.

* Teepo in ''BreathOfFireIII'' leaves the party near the beginning of the game, whereupon everything he has on him is subject to SoLongAndThanksForAllTheGear. Luckily, skills he learnt from enemies beforehand are transferred to the skill note list instead.

* ''MarvelUltimateAlliance'' has three: Dum Dum Dugan, Corsair, and Nick Fury himself (before becoming an unlockable character). Dugan shows up at the beginning of the first mission in Act I and the heroes must fight alongside him while protecting him; if his health runs out the mission must be started over. Corsair shows up during a mission in Act 4 where he will fight alongside the party for the first screen before separating from them and communicating with them over a radio. Fury fights alongside the party at the beginning of Act 5 when the corrupted Stark Tower becomes under attack by Dr. Doom's forces.

* In ''XMenLegends'' Professor Xavier is playable for one mission in the Astral Plane and is ridiculously overpowered, he gets taken out about three quarters in and Jean Grey and Emma Frost are forced to carry on without him; in the penultimate mission Xavier is used again (this time in the form of the "Astral Gladiator") for the boss fight against the Shadow King. Additionally, in one mission a computer controlled Havoc fights alongside Cyclops and Wolverine at the Weapon X ruins to rescue several hostage mutants. Later, he and Magneto fight alongside the X-Men party when Sentinels attack the mansion.

** [[spoiler:Flynn]] in ''VideoGame/{{Tales of Vesperia}}'', who joins for a grand total of one battle. In the {{PS3}} version, however, he joins at four points throughout the story (the fourth being the aforementioned one battle). Shortly afterwards, right before TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon, he joins the party permanently.
