* Back in the territory days, the managers were more or less permanent fixtures. They helped with continuity (eg: "[{{Face}} champion], you may have beaten my protege this time, [[WeWillMeetAgain but wait until you see who I am bringing next time!]]"). They also served as mouthpieces because, aside from [[Wrestling/DustyRhodes Dusty]] and [[Wrestling/RicFlair Flair]], they were all just terrible talkers. It's all scripted now. (No need for natural talkers when everyone can sound equally wooden.)
** The old-style managers, namely [[Wrestling/FreddieBlassie Blassie]] and [[Wrestling/CaptainLouAlbano Albano]], would walk their guys out to Madison Square Garden, but they didn't tour. (Wrestlers move from place to place.) They cut promos and were there for the {{squash match}}es on TV, but then they would leave before the match started. [[Wrestling/BobbyHeenan Heenan]] and [[Wrestling/JimmyHart Hart]] were the next evolution of managers who were at ringside every show, took bumps from [[Wrestling/HulkHogan Hogan]] over and over again, and still came back.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Good advisors are an important part of the game of thrones. The office of Hand of the King is built around this trope, though individuals range from TheGoodChancellor to the DragonInChief.
*** Eddard Stark serves as this to his friend, King Robert, who self-admittedly neglects the day-to-day running of his kingdom.
*** Davos and Melisandre act as co-consiglieres to Stannis, often providing very conflicting advice. Whether it's battle tactics, politics, or just an opinion in general, Stannis places great trust in Davos. Following Stannis's death, he becomes this for Jon Snow.
*** Roose Bolton acts as this to Robb in Season 2, advising him on everything from prisoners to new threats with mixed results since he is also the Starks' TokenEvilTeammate.
