Added DiffLines:

* Luther Stickell from ''Film/MissionImpossible'', although he gets some action (some more about suspense than actual bullets flying) in each of the films. In ''Ghost Protocol'', all four team members either discuss or are depicted on-screen as being in the Mission Control position.

* Another inversion in ''[=eXperience112=]''. You are the mission control. The entire high tech basement is strangely devoid of speakers, so you must communicate by moving cameras, opening/closing doors and lights -- and don't believe you'll get bored, you have so much data to analyze to understand the situation and help the heroine that you'll ofter have to make HR wait for hours. Well... except if you are cheating and using passwords you're not supposed to have found yet. The concept's great, the reviews are not.

* Cortana from the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series. Somewhat subverted in that most of the time Cortana is in the thick of things with Chief...In his helmet. When she is absent for the first part of ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'', Commander Keyes and Sgt. Johnson often take this role up.
** There is a mission in the back half of ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'', where you have to drop Cortana off to do her own thing, and you have nobody prompting you to accomplish your objectives. It's [[NothingIsScarier a bit eerie]], especially considering that the objectives are set by the Chief himself, who is freaked out by the [[spoiler:Flood]].

Somewhat franchise's main example, though it's somewhat subverted in that most of the time Cortana is she's in the thick of things with Chief...In in his helmet. There is a mission in the back half of ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'' where you have to drop Cortana off to do her own thing, and you have nobody prompting you to accomplish your objectives. It's [[NothingIsScarier a bit eerie]], especially considering that the objectives are set by the Chief himself, who is clearly freaked out by the [[spoiler:Flood]].

mission in the back half of ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'', where you have to drop Cortana off to do her own thing, handler, with Palmer and you have nobody prompting you to accomplish Roland sometimes joining in as well. Additionally, Dalton handles your objectives. It's [[NothingIsScarier a bit eerie]], especially considering that the objectives are set by the Chief himself, who is freaked out by the [[spoiler:Flood]].air support and Glassman eventually provides some additional tech support.

* In TheDCU, Barbara Gordon, the former Batgirl, helps out many of the superheroes in Gotham City and around the world as Oracle, since she was crippled by the Joker in ''Franchise/{{Batman}}: ComicBook/TheKillingJoke''. However, she most often serves as actual Mission Control for the Black Canary, Huntress, and even Catwoman in the ''ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey'' comic.

* The Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) officer from the ''VideoGame/AceCombat'' series gives out orders as well as reports the status of the player, but the only part seen of him is his plane in some cutscenes. Note that while he's sometimes late in reporting stuff (due to the nature of standardized sound clips), he's usually not [[StopHelpingMe annoying]].
