** ''TheNamelessMod'' has Evil Invasion or That Guy (depending on faction). The first you meet in person, the 2nd [[spoiler:you can meet a hologram of, created because he is too lazy to leave his apartment (he shows up in person in the WC ending)]]. ''The Nameless Mod'' also uses the infolink as a game mechanic. As you can't save while it's active, they proceed to have a character repeatedly call you during a very precarious jumping puzzle. ''The Nameless Mod'' allows the player to connect to the mod's IRC channel ingame; it is explicitly suggested (in loading screens) that he use it for help.

* Blackbird from the early RPG/FPS ''{{Strife}}''. One of the first such characters in a computer game and once referred to by ''PC Gamer'' as the sexiest thing to ever come out of your PC speakers.

* In ''{{Mercenaries}}'', Fiona Taylor, your mission support, serves as this. In the first one she's generally helpful, but get's so repetitive during the sequel it quickly gets into AnnoyingVideoGameHelper territory.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', Alphys plays this role for you in Hotland and the Core after she upgrades your cell phone. (It's revealed shortly before this that she has been monitoring your adventures constantly on video.) The phone not only transmits her timely (though not always helpful) advice and assistance, but also random updates about her anime watching experiences and social life or lack thereof.

* In ''System Shock 2'' the player is assisted by a Dr. Polito, who has baricaded herself in a room with computer and communication access, [[spoiler:but had [[DeadAllAlong died before the beginning of the game]] and is instead used as a cover by SHODAN, who is imitating her voice pattern]], which is a subversion of Rebecca Lansing's role in the original ''VideoGame/SystemShock''.

* Alice Murray and "S3kshun8" in ''ArmyOfTwo''; S3kshun8 has no voiced lines and only speaks in LeetLingo, so in order to understand what he's saying requires understanding of 1337 and fast eyes.
* ''Battlefield: Bad Company'' has B-Company assisted by radio opperator ''Mike-One-Juliet'', on which Sweetwater has a big crush without ever having met or even talked to her. He's constantly pestering Redford to give her messages from him and affectianlly calls her ''"Miss July"''. When [[spoiler:the four soldiers are sacrificed and abandoned, she takes the risk of acting against orders and provides them with intelligence to get her boys back home safely]]. Though she's usually very proffessional, she seems to hope for them to share a part of the (stolen) gold with her.

* In ''Series/AgentsOfShield'', Simmons plays this part for Skye (through an earpiece) when she gets into a party run by CorruptCorporateExecutive Ian Quinn.
-->'''Skye:''' I could get used to this. It's like Siri, if it worked.

* 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.
