* In ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder'', Cedric the Owl was ''intended'' to help guide the player through the game and offer insightful input. In practice he just [[StopHelpingMe hung around annoying you]], [[DirtyCoward left when anything dangerous might happen]], made [[CaptainObvious inane observations]] ([[MemeticMutation "Graham, watch out! A]] ''[[MemeticMutation poisonous]]'' [[MemeticMutation snake!"]]) and when he said something that actually could have been a useful warning, it was always too late to avert the catastrophe. The key here is he was designed to give information; he just [[TheScrappy sucked at it]].

* Harvey Who, an extremely minor character from ArchieComics' ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'' series is this as a member of the Kingdom of Acorn's Secret Service. However, King Max portrayed him as a CassandraTruth sayer, ignoring his advice and leading to the downfall of his kingdom [[note]]Unless it's retconned out, Max admitted back in issue 58 or so that he and all previous kings had bonded with a magic pool called "The Source of All", essentially a counterpart of [[StarWars The Force]], to guide their actions so he probably wasn't as skilled at the whole king thing as he thought.[[/note]]. He sees Max's son, Elias, as a worthy holder of the crown and is working to help him get it back.
