Second Banana is a term that has been around a really long time that meant "second billing" in an acting company. It's most often applied to comedians or comedies now; in such cases it's the supporting comedian, who may also be the StraightMan. Depending on the story he could be either the victim of the prime role's (deliberate or unwitting) antics or the more successful one, who watches and snarks at the star's foolishness. The Second Banana may no longer actually get second billing.

** Porky Pig was the studio's first major star but soon became the Second Banana and the StraightMan to the much wackier, egotistical and denser Daffy Duck. In-universe he was most often either conned, tormented or bossed around by Daffy, depending on the short. At times all three together.
