* ''{{SCTV}}'' did a parody of "Play it Again, Sam" built around WoodyAllen's admiration of BobHope, hoping to do a film project with him. Like Bogart in the original, he's coached by the spirit of BingCrosby on how to connect with Hope.

** Playing off the hint in ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'', Yoda is depicted conferring with Qui-Gon's spirit in several Clone Wars–era novels. In ''Literature/DarkRendezvous'', Qui-Gon provides a crucial insight into his old master Dooku's intentions, and in the ''Literature/RevengeOfTheSith'' novelization, Yoda actually accepts a position as Qui-Gon's ''apprentice'', to learn how to pass into the Force himself. It is implied that Qui-Gon, having been a less conventional Jedi in life, will also teach Yoda how to train Luke to defeat the Emperor, which Yoda himself could not accomplish. At the beginning of Obi-Wan's exile in ''Literature/StarWarsKenobi'', Qui-Gon has yet to appear to him without Yoda present, but Obi-Wan addresses him in nightly meditations, which serve as CaptainsLog entries for the reader. In the last chapter of ''Literature/DarkLordTheRiseOfDarthVader'', Obi-Wan discovers that Vader is still alive, and Qui-Gon finally speaks to him to reassure him that Luke is safe--Vader will never return to Tatooine, the planet that caused him so much pain. Qui-Gon also tells Obi-Wan not to tell Luke about his parentage "until the time is right," leading to Obi-Wan's famous MetaphoricallyTrue speech when ''he'' is a Spirit Advisor.

* ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'': Mia Fey, TheObiWan, performs this function in the games. It's made easier by the fact that Phoenix's {{Sidekick}} Maya is a Spirit Medium and Mia's little sister, whose ''job description'' is speaking on behalf of dead people. (This often happens involuntarily, as Maya's abilities for the first game and a half are a bit hit-or-miss, and Mia's a definitely forceful personality.) Later on, usually when Maya is [[DistressBall unavailable]], their Medium-prodigy cousin Pearl does similar helpful channeling.

* The opera ''Literature/TheTurnOfTheScrew'' plays the two ghosts as a not-so-benevolent version of this. Miles hears Quint and Flora hears Miss Jessel, while the Governess can see both but hear neither. They are not always visible to the audience; in particular, Quint appears as no more than a silhouette in the interscene where he tells Miles to take the letter the Governess has written.

** After [[spoiler:Jacob]]'s death, he puts on this role to guide Hurley, taking advantage of Hurley's [[ISeeDeadPeople ability to converse with the dead]]. Hurley actually compares his appearances to [[Film/StarWars Obi-Wan Kenobi]]. Of course, he's got his own motives, good or bad, and he's more of a ManipulativeBastard than TheObiWan.

* ''TheTenthKingdom'': Snow White calls herself a fairy godmother, but also freely admits she is actually dead (something which is never stated about fairy godmothers). Only Virginia and Wendell (the latter either because he's gone doggy at the time or because he's her grandson) can see and speak with her--Tony cannot. She later appears in Virginia's dreams.
