* Malcolm Corley and Adrian Ripburger seem to have this dynamic in ''VideoGame/FullThrottle''.
''VideoGame/FullThrottle''. Malcolm, the CEO of Corley Motors, is a genius engineer ([[spoiler:like his secret daughter]]) and puts a lot of effort into his workers' welfare, but most of the day-to-day business running of CM seems to lie with his Vice-President Ripburger, whose management know-how outweighs Malcolm's personal dislike of him. Their partnership ultimately goes very bad, when [[spoiler:Ripburger murders Corley and pins it on the protagonist's gang, in order to take over Corley Motors]].

* This comes up a lot in murder-of-the-week PoliceProcedurals. The victim will be the one who made stuff (the doer), and the partner will by the one who made the company run (the talker). Or less often, vice-versa. Either way, the still-living partner will say that s/he doesn't know how the company will be able to survive without the dead partner (when the partner isn't the Perp).

* Similarly, in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' DLC ''Dragonborn'', a treasure hunter named Ralis Sedarys offers you a partnership to excavate the Kolbjorn Barrow for the ancient relics contained within. You provide the funding ([[CashGate a total of 11,000 gold in four chunks]]) and the muscle whenever the miners run into the draugr, while he manages the dig day-to-day and [[WeHaveReserves hires more miners and mercenaries to replace the losses]]. [[spoiler:In the end, however, you discover that Ralis had been mind-controlled by an undead Dragon Priest buried in the barrow since before you first met him and had quite possibly been sacrificing the miners to him with his own hands.]]

* Master smith Wade and merchant Herren from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins''.
* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', ''you'' (as [[PlayerCharacter Hawke]]) can become the Doer to Hubert Bartiere's Talker, if you follow up on his SidequestSidestory and agree to co-own the Bone Pit mine. "Doing" in this case mostly boils down to clearing out the mine infestation by increasingly nasty creatures [[OncePerEpisode once per Act]].
