Their personalities usually sharply contrast, e.g. calm/hyper, jock/geek, etc., or their appearances contrast, e.g. short/tall, [[FatAndSkinny thin/fat]]... When they don't, they will be exactly the same. They might even wear CoordinatedClothes. Their names are often esoteric (either too complex or too simple to stand out), plus their non-involvement with the plot usually results in them being called "Those Two Guys".

Guys". If part of a band of four, they will be paired with an Odd-Couple type, usually protagonist/narrator and a best-friend type. They will often split into two groups of two, usually with the two main characters having a profound (or at least more plot-relevant) conversation while the other two (usually the group dumb guy and the big guy/tough guy) do something contrastingly goofy, like roughhousing or mindless bullshitting (see StandByMe or GoodWillHunting , to name just two examples).

Compare the BetaCouple, HeterosexualLifePartners, TomboyAndGirlyGirl, SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan, StraightManAndWiseGuy, StatlerAndWaldorf and TheDividual. This trope may sometimes overlap with RedOniBlueOni trope (though that trope isn't always exclusive to the Those Two Guys trope). Despite the similar name, ThoseTwoBadGuys have ''very'' different personalities from Those Two Guys... even if they ''are'' bad guys. If there's only one of these guys in a romance-based series, he's likely a BromanticFoil. Also associated to members of a musical group who are not the FaceOfTheBand.

In ''Fanfic/BoysUndSenshado'', there's Gunjin Hayate and Keiibin Kenji, two members of Shark Team. They're said to be friends with each other, and tend to show up together, but don't have much interactions with the rest of their crew, whether Akio and Masaru, or Heishi ([[TheFriendNobodyLikes whom the rest of their crew can't stand]]).

* FanFic/RealityChecksNyxverse has Lightning Blitz and Sundiver, the pair of pegasus Royal Guards assigned to discreetly watch over Twilight and Nyx. When the latter two ascend to the royal family in ''Alicornundrum'', Nyx specifically asks that the duo be assigned permanent duty as part of their guard contingent.

* While they eventually became competitors and brought in their title belts from Puerto Rico, La Amazona and La Morena initially served as the self appointed spokeswomen of Ring Warriors in 2012. True to the trope, they were even buddy buddy with longtime rival [[Wrestling/BlackRose La Rosa Negra]], who had already debuted proper and was an inaugural champion of the company. Amazona sort of reprized the role online with Silvie Silver when Rosa debuted for LLF in Mexico (Silver had been there awhile but was unfamiliar with some of the local [[GarbageWrestler quirks]]).

Occasionally, we get a LowerDeckEpisode from their point of view. Expect to ask someone WhoIsThisGuyAgain after a few episodes.
