* Anime/{{Pokemon}} has a G-rated version in the episode "The Forest Teacher", an Oranguru that lives up to the species' name of "Sage Pokémon", somehow dispensing advice to humans despite the PokemonSpeak (well, it ''is'' a Psychic-type, so maybe it's somehow making its meaning known without actually speaking), treating their wounds if needed, and serving up Pinap Juice.

* ''Series/{{Eastenders}}'': Has The Queen Vic(toria) pub, which is basically the centre of Albert Square. If you run it, you're in charge of the square. Usually, bad things happen to you, too. Several characters fight for the title King/Queen of the Vic.

* K from ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV''. Formerly a Samurai commander, he became this upon retirement. He mellowed out, but he still helps out the new generation by managing Challenge Quests and, as per trope standard, advice dispenser.
* The WildWest chapter of ''VideoGame/LiveALive'' has one, of course. His main purpose in the game is to waste time: you get 8 minutes to set traps to hold off the Crazy Bunch gang, and if you're done early you can have a drink to pass the time faster. While he has a story to tell, he keeps getting sidetracked telling it and it goes absolutely nowhere.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/DragonAge'' has a few. None of them are of the advice-giving persuasion, but they all have their own relevance to the plot.
** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', there's Lloyd, the owner and bartender at the tavern in Redcliffe. The player, if their persuasion skill is high enough, may force him to participate in the defense of the village instead of hiding out in the cellar getting drunk.
*** In the city of Denerim, the unnamed bartender at the Gnawed Noble Tavern can be approached for some off-the-record side quests which are not precisely legal.
*** The owner of the Spoiled Princess Inn, on the docks of Lake Calenhad, needs the player character to stop asking nosy questions because his family is under threat of murder. Naturally, the player helps him get out of trouble.
** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', the bartender of the Hanged Man is called Corff. Instead of advice, he offers gossip when asked, and some of it is incredibly funny.
** In the first part of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', the bar in Haven is run by a sweet woman called Flissa. Her major involvement with the plot is needing to be rescued from the burning bar when the village is attacked.
*** When the Inquisition settles in Skyhold, she's replaced as bartender by a taciturn dwarf named Cabot. When asked, Cabot will comment on his training, the general mood, and random things he's overheard from the patrons - all delivered in the same deadpan tone.
