* ''Manga/NatsuENoTobira'' has Marion's friends [[NobleMaleRoguishMale Lind and Jacques]], who comment on everything that happens around them and their chats often serve as "frame" to the action. [[spoiler: Until [[FromBadToWorse everything goes to shit]], that is.]]

* ''Manga/{{Mahoromatic}}'' has Kawahara and Hamadi who, in the first season, exist mostly to procure and share porn with Suguru. In the second season, Hamadi goes beyond simple Two-Guys-hood when he develops a crush on [[{{Dojikko}} Minawa]]. Kawahara still mostly stays in the background. [[spoiler:In the manga [[WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue epilogue]], Hamadi is shown to have married Minawa while [[PairTheSpares Kawahara is with Miyuki]]]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/FairyTail'':
** The most obvious example of this is Jet and Droy. In the anime, this is even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by Master Makarov, when they switch bodies as an effect of the Changeling spell.
-->'''Makarov:''' I don't think anybody's gonna be able to tell the difference with you two.
** Macao and Wakaba fall into this category as well.
** Max and Warren, and especially their Edolas counterparts, where even though it's a BizarroUniverse, they're virtually the same as their Earthland equivalents, plus they even serve as MrExposition to explain to the viewer how everybody else's counterparts are so different than what we're used to.
** Sting and Rogue are a particularly important pair. Consequently, the same applies for their Exceeds, Lector and Frosch.
** Zatou and Gatou, brothers from the Dark Guild Naked Mummy, who both consider the other to be the older brother.

* Keigo and Mizuiro from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''. At one point it looked like a subversion was coming up in the pipeline, as the local TricksterMentor Urahara mysteriously told them that it was time for them to get involved near the beginning of one arc... but no sign of this appeared, other than ThoseTwoGuys saying hi to the big bad briefly.
** Keigo is a strange case, as while he isn't directly involved with Ichigo or the Soul Society, he is actually able to see spirits and has interacted with certain Soul Reapers.
*** In addition, when Grimmjow and his underlings search for people in Karakura Town with strong spiritual pressure, Keigo is conspicuously included in the montage of such citizens.
** Earlier in the series, Orihime and Tatsuki filled these roles, although Tatsuki got into the supporting cast, and Orihime is now a regular, in fact she's the whole [[DamselInDistress motivation for the Hueco Mundo arc]].
** Although they aren't seen together ([[YuriFan some people would love if that happened]]), Chizuru Honshou and Ryou Kunieda seems to apply to the female part of the trope, at least in the manga continuity, where they are the two most active females from the human background cast.
*** We also have the other two girls in Orihime, Chizuru and Tatsuki's group of friends, Mahana and Michiru.
** Don't forget Kiyone and Sentaro, Captain Ukitake's co-third seats, who he has in place of a lieutenant. Loyal, enthusiastic (Kiyone fangirls 'her' captain), not entirely competent.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Keigo and Mizuiro from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''. At one point it looked are two of Ichigo's oldest friends and are always together. Keigo is the outgoing funny-man while Mizuiro is the quiet, introverted leader of the pair. They initially look like a subversion was coming up in the pipeline, subversion, as the local TricksterMentor Urahara mysteriously told tells them that it was is time for them to get involved near when they follow Ichigo to Urahara's shop... but Urahara ultimately meant that Ichigo needed to tell his friends the beginning of one arc... but no sign of this appeared, other truth about what was going on. Other than ThoseTwoGuys saying hi to the big bad briefly.
** Keigo is a strange case,
as while he isn't directly involved with they briefly show surprising bravery in the face of overwhelming odds, they have very limited role in the main plot and serve to remind the reader about the ordinary school life Ichigo or the Soul Society, originally had before he is actually able to see spirits and has interacted with certain Soul Reapers.
*** In addition, when Grimmjow and his underlings search for people in
became Karakura Town with strong spiritual pressure, Keigo is conspicuously included in the montage of such citizens.

** Two of the three BridgeBunnies, Alto and Lucino in ''[[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS StrikerS]]''. It's subverted, though. Despite they seem to appear often together, it's not really the case. They don't know each other that well, they interact with different people rather than with each other, and they work in different branches after ''[=StrikerS=]''.

* Maria Ross and Denny Brosh seem headed this way at the beginning of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', but then Ross gets unpredictably [[PutOnABus swept away by the plot]] and Denny is left to fend for himself as that one guy. He and Maria do remain as Those Two Guys in the [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist 2003 anime]].

** Kimblee's chimeras also seem to have this going (not completely, since they do mix and match a bit near the end of the story, but the majority of their appearances are in these pairs):
*** Jerso and Zampano are persuaded by Al to make a HeelFaceTurn, end up traveling with Scar and his group, and [[spoiler:decide to travel with Al when he [[WalkingTheEarth wanders the Earth]] at the end]].
*** Darius and Heinkel, after being betrayed by Kimblee, save Ed after he saves them and decide to stick with him since they have nowhere else to go, and end up forming a four-person group of TrueCompanions with him and Greedling.

** Also, anytime Koga showed up, he would invariably be followed by his two lovable lieutenants, Ginta and Hakkaku -- or, in one memorable instance, ''preceded'' by them, as they hunted down Inu-Yasha as the only person they could think of who could beat some sense into their packleader while Koga was being [[MindControl mind-controlled]] by BigBad MagnificentBastard Naraku.

** Subverted in ''[[Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaViViD ViViD]]''. Rio and Corona start the series looking like [[GenerationXerox Vivio's versions]] of Suzuka and Alisa, but then we find out that they're both mages, and pretty damn good ones too.

Though both of them were reduced to this role in ''Anime/VividStrike'' due to the season focusing purely on hand-to-hand combat (both of their fighting styles involve magic usage and ranged attacks).

* In ''Manga/Brave10'', Mitsunari and Naoe primarily show up as a set in the story, always [[PassiveAggressiveKombat gossiping about the other lords]] and plotting their uprising against Tokugawa.

*** Taniguchi eventually underwent a ''massive'' amount of MemeticMutation, much of which his voice actor Creator/MinoruShiraishi referenced while playing himself in ''Manga/LuckyStar''.

to:

*** [[spoiler: Kunikida gets a little bit of character development in The Surprise of Haruhi Suzumiya, where he reveals his crush on Tsuruya to be the reason why he chose to go to North High. He also mentioned noticing an inhuman presence from [[RobotGirl Yuki Nagato and Kuyou Suou.]] Whether or not this will go anywhere later on in the plot is anyone's guess.]]
