** The NumberTwo is [[KnightInShiningArmor Lavitz]] for Disc 1 [[spoiler: until he dies]], and then, it changes to [[BadassBookworm Albert]]. Albert is the NumberTwo throughout Disc 2 and into Disc 3 until [[BadassPrincess Miranda]] takes charge during the Mille Seseau arc of the story. When Disc 4 comes around, [[DarkActionGirl Rose]] is solidly the NumberTwo.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollSIIIMorrowind'', Hrundi served in this role to Percius Mercius, the ReasonableAuthorityFigure former Guild Master of the Fighters Guild. In attempting to overthrow the current (very corrupt) Guild Master either via the Thieves Guild quest line or the Fighters Guild quest line itself, you'll need Hrundi's support. In order to get it, you may need to [[spoiler:discover that he has taken a [[InterspeciesRomance Dunmer lover]] and use this information to {{blackmail}} him]].

** As seen in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', Ocato filled this role to [[TheGoodKing Emperor Uriel Septim VII]] and, briefly, to his [[HiddenBackupPrince illegitimate son, Martin]]. Ocato served as the [[TheGoodChancellor High Chancellor]] and [[CourtMage Imperial Battlemage]] to Uriel VII, and very much [[TheCreon preferred being the number two]], including exhausting all backup options to find a suitable heir before accepting the title of [[RegentForLife Potentate]] of the Empire. (Something he had every right to take from the start as High Chancellor in accordance with the Elder Council Charter.)

* This is standard practice in most military forces around the world: every officer will either have a junior aide or senior enlisted man to advise them. Occasionally, the job description also entitles replacing the officer in case he takes a dirt nap or is otherwise incapacitated, to maintain operation even during an emergency.

* For the US armed forces, the Vice President of the United States, first in the line of succession after the President of the United States, is ''not'' an example. His primary job is to maintain pulse and respiration just in case something befalls the president, such as death, illness, or if he quits or is removed from office. For the armed forces, NumberTwo after the President will typically be the Secretary of Defense (for the four armed services of the Department of Defense) or the Secretary of Homeland Security (for the Coast Guard). Both men are also in the line of succession, but by design are rather far down the line[[note]]the Secretary of Defense is sixth in line, right after the Coast Guard's former boss, the Secretary of the Treasury, and the Secretary of Homeland Security is in seventeenth place, right after the Secretary of Veteran Affairs. Second and Third place go to the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President pro tempore of the Senate, respectively. After that it's all Cabinet Secretaries, in order of seniority based on when that cabinet position was established.[[/note]]

* Tony [=DiNozzo=] is Gibbs' Number Two on ''Series/{{NCIS}}''. While [=DiNozzo=] is usually a JerkJock who's [[DeadpanSnarker always got a smartass comment ready]], when he's put in charge he's [[ObfuscatingStupidity almost as competent as Gibbs]]. After Tony leaves the show in the Season 13 finale to [[spoiler: raise his and Ziva's daughter after her death]], the second-in-command role is passed to Timothy [=McGee=], symbolized by Tony dubbing him "Very Special Agent" during their goodbye.

Not to be confused with [[Script/NumberTwo the original script]] for ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartII''. Or the euphemism for solid waste.

* [=SpongeTron=] is this in ''Fanfic/TimeFixersNicktoonsOftheFuture'' since he often takes charge of the Nicktoons when Darry is not around and was even made leader when Darry temporarily retired. For the original Nicktoons team, Danny serves as Jimmy's Number Two.

* Alan Brooke was the Number Two of WinstonChurchill. Theoretically he was the Number Two of King George VI (since the Monarch, by convention, delegates power to the Government of the day) but that was eccentric British {{Nostalgia}} rather than a serious governmental arrangement. The Armed Forces are loyal not to Parliament, but to the Crown, and therefore Alan Brooke could not be nominally subordinate to the PM and retain the authority to over-rule any other military advisor the Government might call in. Alan Brooke was also Chief of the Imperial General Staff - the Empire's senior military officer - and therefore in a position to exercise command over Empire and Dominion troops who Churchill had no direct authority over, and this derived specifically from his nominal role as the King-Emperor's military advisor (since Churchill was subordinate to the King in that respect).
