* A good deal of ''Film/{{Apollo 13}}'' takes place in NASA's Houston mission control, and, as in the real event, the operators there were just as much heroes as the astronauts were. The recreation was so good one of the consultants, a NASA employee, kept forgetting it was only a set and looking for the elevator at the end of the day to leave for home, just like another "real" day back in Houston.

* Spoofed in ''WesternAnimation/InspectoGadget'': Gadget receives briefings of his missions from his boss hidden in mundane places with the RunningGag that the paper with the information would self-destruct (in a parody of ''Series/MissionImpossible'') always falling into the chief. PlayedStraight with Dr. Claw who often oversees his minions' operations this way.

* Ned in ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'' is aware of this trope, referring to it as "the guy in a chair" and wanting to be it to Peter. [[spoiler: He gets his wish during the climax, helping Peter out remotely due to the latter not having his advanced suit.]]

** In the [[FinalBoss Time Eater-battle]] from ''Videogame/SonicGenerations'', the two Tails-es enable everyone who you've freed during the game (plus Shadow and Silver) to encourage the Sonics and warn them about incoming attacks. Unfortunately, they don't serve this purpose very well.[[note]][[MemeticMutation THAT LOOKS]] [[BrokenRecord LIKE A]] [[MostAnnoyingSound HOMING SHOT!!!]][[/note]]
** In ''Videogame/SonicForces'', Sonic's friends once again have the ability to talk to him, but while the Chaotix, Tails, Knuckles and Silver mostly just offer encouragement, BossBanter and updates on their own respective missions, Amy is the one giving Sonic vital information about his assignment, such as the whereabouts of Shadow.

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.
