They represent the tie that the character still has to their original, pre-super life. They will usually interact with the main character's family, friends and {{Love Interest|s}} even when the hero is unable to. They are most common in shows where TheHero does not have a FiveManBand - if they do they will be overshadowed as the position of Best Friend tends to go to TheLancer, but might still serve a background function. At some point they will be held hostage by the villain and they are often in the risk of getting KilledOffForReal to provide TheHero with [[ILetGwenStacyDie a reason for revenge]].

* Mostly averted in the Harry Potter series. Harry has no muggle best friends, and wizards are supposed to keep their magic secret from muggles. However, a few of the supporting characters do have a muggle best friend or two. For instance, [[CrazyCatLady Arbella]] [[TheBooRadley Figg]] is this to the Order of the Phoenix, and Hermione's parents are implied to be muggle best friends of Arthur Weasley. Muggle family and spouses of witches and wizards are implied to normally fill this role, though Aunt Petunia is a subversion, as she hates all magic due to jealousy of the attention her sister got for being a witch. Dudley is a double subversion, as he starts out being a bully to Harry, but [[spoiler:they reconcile at the beginning of the 7th book, and remain on "Christmas card terms" throughout adulthood]].

* ''Franchise/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' has Alisa and Suzuka. Eventually phased out come the third season and beyond, when TheHero decided [[StayWithTheAliens to move off of Earth]]. However, the first [=StrikerS=] Sound Stage shows that they still keep in contact despite living on an InsignificantLittleBluePlanet (pictures of them can even be seen hung up in Nanoha and Fate's room during the season proper).
