* Tom from the Roger Mellie strips in {{Viz}}. Sometimes he's Roger's agent and at other times he's Roger's producer, but he's always Roger's straight man. One strip featured a sign on his desk that had "straight man" as his job title.

* ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'': In the early days, Jon was the straight man to Garfield. Most of the humor in the early strips derived from Jon lamenting his status as cat owner whenever Garfield's catlike curiosity led him to do idiotic things. But as [[CharacterizationMarchesOn characterization marched on]], Jon turned into a socially awkward and weird ManChild, while Garfield turned into a lazy DeadpanSnarker, whose job it was to comment on Jon's strange behavior.
