* Mihara Oujirou in ''KidouTenshiAngelicLayer'' is a shounen example, although the main character ''is'' still a cute girl.

* [[Anime/CodeGeass Zero]] fulfills a similar role for Nunnally in her manga spinoff: ''NightmareOfNunnally''... sort of. He shows up out of nowhere whenever Nemo is in the middle of a battle, and usually brings about chaos, allowing Nemo to win or escape. It can be seen most obviously near the end, where Zero acts as a SupportingLeader along with Euphie, Suzaku, and their combined armies.

* Franchise/{{Superman}}: In the original ''ComicBook/TheManOfSteel'' miniseries, Clark was this til he was forced to save the space plane in front of a huge crowd. In ''ComicBook/KingdomCome'', Wonder Woman commented that Superman could have chosen to remain behind the scenes and did his superheroing in secret but chose to be as obvious as possible. In ''ComicBook/SupermanLoisAndClark'', he's doing just that, staying out of the way of the New52 Superman but still performing feats of bravery invisibly.

* Tooya from ''AyashiNoCeres''. Bonus points for wearing a BadassLongcoat, shades, ''and'' for being [[TheStoic stoic]].
* Tamahome of ''FushigiYuugi'' sort of falls into this trope at first. "Sort of" because Mysterious Protectors don't usually ask for money back, and because we get to know who he is soon enough.

* Haku in ''SpiritedAway'' certainly counts. He helped Chihiro several times throughout the course of the movie, remarking that despite not remembering anything else about his past, he remembers her. It is later revealed that [[spoiler: when Chihiro was a child, she fell into his river and he had rescued her.]]

* In a rather odd variation, odder for being in one of the [[{{Gorn}} bloodiest]] and [[MindScrew mindscrewy]] {{Seinen}} out there, Ran and Ichise ''{{Texhnolyze}}'' are this from each other. Ran, resident MysteriousWaif, is the more traditional version, distant and mysterious, appearing to guide or help Ichise out suddenly at pivotal and critical moments, before fading away into the background, remaining almost anonymous until at least halfway through the anime. Ichise, on the other hand, is [[TheStoic dark and quiet]] {{Determinator}} who tends to show up mysteriously at the right moments through more sheer luck than anything else (while all of Ran's appearances are intentional, as far as we know).
