* Creator/GeorgeBurns and Gracie Allen used a variant: StraightMan And TheDitz. Interestingly, Gracie Allen was initially the StraightMan in their comedy act...until GeorgeBurns realized her set-up lines got more laughter than the actual jokes. He switched roles with her and spent the next several decades as one of the classic straight men.

* [[Creator/TheCynicalBrit John Bain]] and WebVideo/JesseCox, with the former as the straight man and the latter as the wise guy. You wouldn't think so, given Jesse's wacky and outgoing personality and [[{{Crendor}} WowCrendor's]] monotone deadpan voice, but this is an InvertedTrope when the two partner up. This is because Crendor's more {{Cloudcuckoolander}} traits tend to make Jesse the straight man.

* ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'': Jerkish, calm-to-apathetic [[DoctorJerk Taiga]] is stuck with the bratty, overly cheerful [[MoralityPet Nico]]. His attempt at acting like proper [[PerpetualFrowner brooding]] TokenEvilTeammate are followed either by [[TastesLikeDiabetes her]] trolling him or trying to act tough herself. Both ways usually [[NotSoStoic ruin]] his efforts, much to his dismay.

* Most of The Courier's companions in ''CouriersMindRiseOfNewVegas'' are straight man compared to him to some degree, but [[TheStoic Boone]] is easily ''the'' Straight Man to his Wise Guy.
