* In early editions of ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' [[HollywoodHacking Deckers]] were frequently accused of being this. 4th edition fixed that problem by having most high-security sites air-gap their local Matrix so the decker has to at least be in the same building as the rest of the party and AugmentedReality removed their requirement to "jack in" while the others went and did something else.

* ''Depict'' is based around a Voice with an Internet Connection that [[spoiler:actively lies to you. Whatever it says, you must do the exact opposite to stay alive, no matter how much it pleads with you to trust it and how often it tells you you're going to get yourself killed.]]

** Initially Tequila in ''[=AvP=] 2010'', but when she's incapacitated you get administrator Katya. Ironically, Tequila complains about Katya talking too much, completely forgetting the time when she refused to shut up.

* ''Literature/{{Corpies}}'' reveals that every Hero wears an earpiece that connects him or her to Dispatch, who tells Heroes if they are needed and provides information. As far as anyone knows, no one has actually met Dispatch. The only thing everyone knows is that she is female and sounds vaguely European.

* In Creator/OrsonScottCard's ''Literature/EndersGame'' series, Jane, an AI created from an alien-made psychic disturbance on the internet. In fact, Ender shutting off the earpiece at one point results in [[spoiler:Jane overreacting and informing the Starways Congress about the xenologists teaching things to the Piggies. In turn, the Congress ends up sending a fleet to evacuate and/or obliterate the colony]].

* Creator/{{Bungie}} seems to be totally in love with this trope:
** ''VideoGame/{{Marathon}}'' had the artificial intelligences (Leela, Durandal, Tycho, Thoth, and... that thing) as well as Blake and T'Fear. The [[strike: marine]] Security Officer [[HeroicMime never says a word]].
** ''VideoGame/{{Oni}}'' had Shinatama (a robot, sort of)
** ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'' had the AI Cortana, who was generally inside the Master Chief's suit.
*** In ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'', when playing as the Arbiter, the Voice is usually supplied by Tartarus or [[FanNickname Half-Jaw]].
*** In ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'', the role of Voice with an Internet Connection is generally played by Commander Miranda Keyes or Sergeant Johnson, until late game [[spoiler: when the Chief rescues Cortana.]]
*** The ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series in general makes good use of this trope to build tension and emphasize those moments when the character is really on their own, such as the levels "343 Guilty Spark", "Uprising", and "Cortana".

** In ''VideoGame/HaloReach'', this is shared between Colonel Holland and Auntie Dot, neither of whom even have ''character models''.
** In ''VideoGame/{{Halo 4}}''[='s=] ''Spartan Ops'', Miller is usually the one doing this, though both Palmer and Roland occasionally take up the role too.

The ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series in general makes is very good use of at mixing in this trope with its ''absence'' to build tension and emphasize those moments when the your character is really on their own, such as the levels ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved''[='s=] "343 Guilty Spark", ''Halo 2''[='s=] "Uprising", and ''Halo 3''[='s=] "Cortana".
