Contrast SinisterSurveillance, where the bad guys are watching your every move, contrast and compare MissionControlIsOffItsMeds, where there's a voice, but it's misleading, hostile, insulting, or just insane. MissingMissionControl is a subtrope, which describes any situation where the Mission Control is killed, kidnapped, or otherwise incapacitated. AndMissionControlRejoiced occurs when the Mission Control starts celebrating the heroes' victory before the latter even return.

* Princess Zelda is a downplayed example in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''. She contacts Link telepathically when he wakes up in the Shrine of Resurrection and points him in the basic direction of his quest while he's still on the Great Plateau. After that, though, she only contacts him to let him know when he's accomplished a major task (freeing all the Divine Beasts, recovering all his memories) or to warn him when a Blood Moon is rising. [[spoiler:The spirits of the Champions are more straightforward examples in the dungeons, telling him what to do to free the Divine Beasts and giving him advice during the Blight Ganon fights. And Zelda ultimately tells Link what to do in the final battle against Dark Beast Ganon, though she's also actively helping in the fight herself.]]



** Feferi [[spoiler: after her death]] and Aradia [[spoiler: in dream bubbles]] are straight examples. They help organize the players and start the plans for fighting the main villains.
