* Assuming he [[StoryBranching survived the first game]], Urdnot Wrex becomes this for the rest of the trilogy. As leader of the krogan, he's only too happy to assist you how he can, but his duties come first, and he isn't going to join the crew of the ''Normandy'' again. Subverted in the ''Citadel'' DLC of ''3'' which brings him back -- temporarily -- as a party member to combat the villain of that story arc.

* Throughout the first SmokeyAndTheBandit, it's the Bandit's entire purpose to keep the cops distracted (essentially a ''professional'' Aragorn if he weren't the main character) so his partner [[TheLancer Snowman]] can break every speed limit in the world and get their cargo in on time. However, when the cops start to get ''really'' serious, and it looks like the end for The Bandit, Snowman decides to take some heat off his friend for a change and show everyone [[RammingAlwaysWorks what an 18-wheeler can do to a police barricade]] [[OhCrap only expecting to stop a trans-am]].

* Stella Yamada of ''Film/LemonadeMouth''. She's the one who's in charge of the band, You might as well have her the main character and lead singer of the band than Olivia.

* Bigwig from WatershipDown. He faces off against the BigBad in the Burrows, and Woundwort actually thinks ''he's'' the BigGood - and is even successfully bluffed into retreating, after the two have fought to a mutually exhausted standstill, by Bigwig's admission that he is NOT the warren's chief (and Woundwort expects anyone who can boss Bigwig to be an even bigger and tougher rabbit... not a thinker who is still semi-lame from an old injury.) Turns out Bigwig is just buying time for Hazel's plan to come into fruition.

* In ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' Kittan has this role. Though [[TheHero Simon]] is the official leader of Team Dai Gurren, his status as a OneManArmy means he often is off facing the enemy leader or another large threat while the rest of the team fights off the [[{{Mook}} mooks]], with Kittan leading them. Yoko even literally calls him this, saying Simon was the leader that pulled them up while Kittan supported them from below. Dayakka is a lesser example, commanding the team's battleship.

* Merriman Lyon in Susan Cooper's "Literature/TheDarkIsRising" series. In the first book, he plays the friendly uncle and acts as a sort of guide and guardian to the main characters. In the second book, he's graduated to serving as the mentor figure to another main character. By the third book he finally starts doing things the audience is made privy to, but he's still clearly playing second fiddle to the main characters of the earlier books. He basically skips the fourth book entirely, only to assume a bit more importance in the finale (but still not as much as the other main characters).

* Tedd's father, Mr. Verres, was this until he was KickedUpstairs to "Head of Paranormal Diplomacy". He still has some authority and a huge amount of knowledge and expeience, so he's still a help to the heroes.
