* In the majority of post-''VideoGame/{{Fallout|1}}'' [[WesternRPG CRPGs]] (though, really, this tradition goes all the way back to ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}''), TheFace of the PlayerParty is inevitably the [[FeaturelessProtagonist customizable]] PlayerCharacter--if only because no NonPlayerCompanion can ever strike up a conversation with another NPC on their own. This often has an unfortunate side effect of making Charisma a [[OneStatToRuleThemAll must-grind stat]] for any PC not [[RPGsEqualCombat hell-bent on violence]]--and the DumpStat for everyone else. Examples include:

*** Likewise in TransformersAnimated, he is the first to make friends with Sari, and he and Bulkhead are the ones closest to her.
*** The same goes for Bumblebee's incarnation in WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime.

* In ''VisualNovel/HalloweenOtome'', The Count fills this roll, seeing how Mr. Wolf is too shy and Mr. Bandages is too cold. Possibly proven during one of their challenges, if chosen for the task.

Added DiffLines:

* In an unsual example of this trope, Eddy is this in ''WesternAnimation/EdEddnEddy'', despite being the least liked of the Eds. He's the one who tries to persuade the other kids to try out that episode's scam - Double D is too [[ShrinkingViolet shy]] and Ed is [[TheDitz too dumb to understand what's happening.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Peter Venkman in ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'': Most of the other characters let him do the talking and seems in charge of public relationships. Of course it helps that he has a big ego and is also TheCasanova.

* ''Film/GalaxyQuest'': Parodied like [[AffectionateParody everything else in the movie.]] The fact that Gwen has no technical speciality is lampshaded: Her 'social skills' amount to "repeating everything the computer says."

* ''TabletopGameGeniusTheTransgression'': Scholastics serve this purpose in a Player Party. This is important, since a Genius' ever worsening ScienceRelatedMemeticDisorder causes jabir which makes talking to normal humans rather difficult.
