* Alistair serves here by default in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', due to the rest of the order being wiped out at Ostagar, leaving him as the only other Grey Warden ([[spoiler: [[ThereIsAnother not imprisoned]]]]) in Ferelden, aside from the Warden. Unusual in that Alistair has been a Grey Warden longer and should really outrank the PC. He just prefers to leave leadership up to someone else.

In ''Videogame/DragonAgeInquisition'' he is technically more powerful, but is part of a war council and not a straight step down.



** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', Hawke serves this role to the [[PointyHairedBoss Viscount]] during the second act, negotiating with the Qunari on his behalf. This is because the Arishok views Hawke as the most "[[WorthyOpponent promising]]" individual in the city, while the only words he will deign to say to the Viscount is "[[SilenceYouFool Begone!]]".
** Aveline and Varric frequently share the role of NumberTwo and TheLancer for Hawke, throughout the second game.

* In ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'', Rattrap in the beginning seemed to be Optimus Primal's Number Two, becoming leader while Optimus was stuck inside the alien vessel in ''Chain of Command''. However, by the beginning of the second season, it would seem that Rhinox took over that role, becoming temporary leader while Optimus [[spoiler: was dead]]. On the flip side, Scorponok was Number Two to Megatron until his death, when that role was passed on to Inferno (obviously due to his loyalty and not his intelligence, which seem rather lackluster) Then, during ''WesternAnimation/BeastMachines'', the role of Number Two for the Maximals went to Cheetor, who took command whenever Optimus was not capable of leading.
** Rattrap was still the Number Two as Rhinox was [[spoiler: busy looking for Optimus's spark during most of the episode.]]
* ''ThePenguinsOfMadagascar'' have Kowalski, who seems to function as Skipper's Number Two.

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''. Never outright stated in the show, but [[TheLancer Cyborg]] seems to function as leader whenever Robin is AWOL or otherwise unable to lead, e.g the season one finale.
** Except during the finale of the fifth season story arc, when the role falls to Beast Boy. True, for most of it this was by default of him being the only core team member still free and active, but when the others show up, he still seems to be calling the shots until Robin's freed from the Brotherhood.
** There's also the fact that to most of the team the Brotherhood are new enemies, while Beast Boy had already faced them numerous times when he was a member of the Doom Patrol before joining the Titans.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'', Brooklyn is promoted to the position of Goliath's second when Hudson decides he's getting too old to be an effective leader and when Goliath's long absence proves such a chain of command might be needed.

** This leads to a few problems in season 2: when the President is shot and rushed into surgery everyone reflexively takes their orders from Leo until Bartlet's concious again. Then the dust settles and people start pointing out that, legally speaking, ''they can't do that''.

** ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'': T'Pol is posted to the ship by Vulcan High Command to keep an eye on the humans in their first deep-space venture. She's not officially a member of Starfleet until the third season (which causes a minor argument between her and the ship's engineer over who takes the chair when Archer's not around--it's her). Archer resents her at first, but they eventually come to trust each other.
** ''Series/StarTrekDiscovery'' will break from the pattern by casting the ship's number two as the main character. (Although Trek shows since the original use an EnsembleCast, the captain is still decidedly the protagonist.)
