* Hope of ''Videogame/FinalFantasyXIII'' is a civilian that was unlucky enough to be caught up in the Purge. He stubbornly follows [[TheHero Lightening]] for the bulk of the game. Unlike some kids, he's incredibly useful, because he has the [[SquishyWizard highest magic stat]] in the game.

* Nao from ''Film/UltramanZeroTheRevengeOfBelial'', who happens to be the little brother of Zero's human host for the movie. He's actually pretty useful and gets to pilot a HumongousMecha in the final battle.



* ''Series/{{Ultraman}}'' had Isamu Hoshino (or Isamu Fuji in the original English dub), a boy of about 10 who often visits Science Patrol while they're in their headquarters. He's proven himself useful on a few occasions and is eventually given his own Science Patrol uniform, but he vanishes from the series about two-thirds of the way in.

* Howleen Wolf of ''Franchise/MonsterHigh'', especially in the ''Fright On!'' special. She often deals with her wish to be treated less like her siblings' tagalong but wanting to be like them at the same time.

Typically the youngest member of a group, the Tagalong Kid is usually the Hero's or the Chick's younger brother. He gets to save the day about [[OnceASeason once per season]], but in the worst case scenarios he'll end up being TheLoad or DesignatedVictim in every other episode.

* Aila to Geddoe's mercenary group in ''SuikodenIII'', at least in the mercenaries' opinion. She ''was'' a warrior in her [[DoomedHometown home village]], but is still young and naive compared to the rest, and at the end of the game [[spoiler:Geddoe doesn't let her join the group officially, but he does let her stay around, making her an official Tagalong Kid]].
