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.

* 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.

* ''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.

* ''ArchieComics'': Veronica Lodge. She's TheChick and her skills are mostly social instead of practical, but she contributes by being the only one with unlimited wealth and resources.

* Superman is this in the Justice League as highlighted in Creator/GrantMorrison's JLA: New World Order. [[spoiler: After TheTeam realizes that fire is the key to defeating the Martians, he makes a TV announcement telling the people of Earth to all light matches, cigarette lighters, etc.]]

In a action oriented series, their role could be MissionControl so they can do their social thing without being on the front lines. Their special abilities include TalkingYourWayOut, TalkingTheMonsterToDeath and BreakThemByTalking. If they have PersonalityPowers, they will also likely manifest as PsychicPowers: {{Telepathy}}, TheEmpath etc.

* In ''LegendOfTheFiveRings'' Courtiers are explicitly designed to play this role, as even though most [=PCs=] should have basic social skills to survive Rokugan's complicated system of etiquette and conversation, it helps to have someone who can recruit allies and deal with gossip and slander. In a pinch, Air Shugenjas and more politically oriented Magistrates and Bushi (particularly from the Scorpion or Crane Clans) can fill this role.
