* Bean to [[Literature/EndersGame Ender]]: if Ender ever [[HeroicBSOD broke under the strain]], the plan was to have Bean take over. His own portrayal of the same story has him deciding that while he is the better tactician, he is not a commander of men and thus ''should'' be in such a role.
* Starbuck to [[Literature/MobyDick Ahab]].

* In ''Webcomic/AliceAndTheNightmare'', Queen Rougina has two: Azalea is her captain of the Guard, and Spade is her President.



* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' gives us Moloch von Zinzer, who is, to his ''immense'' displeasure, Agatha Heterodyne's top minion. As Mechanicsburg is a town filled entirely with minions loyal to the House of Heterodyne, this essentially makes him the second most powerful person in the town.
* ''{{Webcomic/Homestuck}}'': Diamonds Droog was Spade Slick/Jack Noir's second in command. [[spoiler: When Slick recruits the Felt, Crowbar becomes the new second in command.]]
** [[spoiler:In the Alpha universe, the Draconian Dignitary became the Condesce's second in command after Jack Noir was imprisoned by Prospit.]]
** It's pretty much stated that one of SBURB's constants is that at the start of the game Jack Noir is the second in command to the Black Queen... and [[TheStarScream he hates her guts]].
* In ''Webcomic/{{Nebula}}'', Mercury is pretty much Sun's right-hand man, and possibly the only one Sun is actually close to. Might be a RedOniBlueOni thing- Sun is aloof to the point of isolation, while Mercury is constantly butting into everyone's business.

* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' gives us Moloch von Zinzer, who is,
relation to his ''immense'' displeasure, Agatha Heterodyne's top minion. As Mechanicsburg is a town filled entirely with minions loyal to gang, the House of Heterodyne, this essentially makes him Felt. Number Seven acts as the second most powerful person Number Three to SelfDemonstrating/DocScratch and Lord English. In practice though, English works alone, leaving Scratch in charge and Number Seven as the town.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Nebula}}'', Mercury is pretty much Sun's right-hand man,
Number Two. Oh, and possibly the only one Sun member who's number is actually close to. Might be a RedOniBlueOni thing- Sun two is aloof to not the point of isolation, while Mercury is constantly butting into everyone's business.
* In ''Webcomic/AliceAndTheNightmare'', Queen Rougina has two: Azalea is her captain of
Number Two, and Doc Scratch gets no actual number. Number Seven tries to ignore the Guard, whole mess and Spade is her President.
just do his job.

* Played straight in TwelveOClockHigh. Upon coming in and taking over when the Commander of Bomb Group has been relieved, the first thing General Savage does is have the Vice Commander (Number Two) of the Bomb Group brought to him under guard, then he proceeds to tear him a new asshole, relieve him of duty, and assign him the biggest fuck-ups in the outfit. He basically tells him that one of the reasons the commander had to be relieved is because he was forced to do too much because he, as Number Two, shirked his duties and didn't take enough tasks off the Commander's shoulders. Savage then proceeds to select a more competent Vice Commander from the other officers in the outfit, and the disgraced officer spends the film trying to redeem himself (which he does).

If the Number Two is also the BigBad's main fighter, then he's TheDragon. Sometimes gets "promoted" to CommanderContrarian. The dimwit version is NumberTwoForBrains.
