* Legendary AcePilot Manfred von Richthofen, the RedBaron, started his flying career as an observer in a 2-seat recon plane. He's believed to have scored a gunnery kill in that role, though as the enemy plane went down in French territory the kill was unconfirmed.

* In ''Creator/DaleBrown'' works, this is realistic. All aircraft with multiple crew members are depicted as such as they would be in RealLife.

* The [[ArtificialHuman Fatimas]] in ''TheFiveStarStories'' are something between a Guy In Back and WetwareCPU, linking directly with the HumongousMecha's computer systems to control most of its incredibly complex operations so the main pilot can focus on moving it around and using the weapons. They usually sit in a completely different cockpit, though, with the Fatima in the head and the "Headdliner" in the torso, though the really humongous Jagd Mirage mechs are equipped with a two-seater cockpit.

** There's a good reason that the Wild Weasels adopted "[[FunWithAcronyms YGBSM]]" as their motto, for "[[YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe You Gotta Be Shittin' Me]]." Supposedly it was the first reaction from the first Wild Weasel pilot when he learned exactly what he was supposed to do. The two crewmembers had to trust each other so closely in order to survive these missions that it wasn't unheard of for a pilot and GIB to have a ''[[HoYay faux-wedding ceremony]]'' upon completing their training.

* In ''Tabletopgame/BattleTech'' normally uses lone pilots for the signature [[HumongousMecha BattleMechs]], but heavy or assault class mechs such as the ''Atlas'' can be fitted with a secondary seat for a radio operator or command functionality. The advanced Cockpit Command Console was favored by many {{Front Line General}}s, but soon became LostTechnology during the Succession Wars as mechs equipped with them were [[StraightForTheCommander usually targeted first]]

** There is also a slightly more common variant called the Dual Cockpit or Tandem Cockpit configuration, which is closer to this trope: two Mechwarriors occupy the expanded cockpit, where one is primarily focused on piloting and the other on gunnery. Together, they provide superior team performance, being able to hit targets more accurately and control the machine more efficiently. One pilot can also take over in the case that their partner is incapacitated or killed, but this reduces the machine's efficiency down below that of a normal single-pilot 'Mech.
