* ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'': Legolas and Gimli are very much Those Two Guys, especially in relation to Aragorn. Merry and Pippin also qualify. Though less in ''The Return of the King'', where they are separated and get bigger roles as knights of Rohan and Gondor respectively. However, their separation has the effect of turning "the cities" Rohan and Gondor figuratively into ''those two guys''.

Added DiffLines:

* [[AllTrollsAreDifferent Troll]] twins Vincent and Victoria from ''Literature/MaledictionTrilogy''. They are unnaturally huge, constantly engage in different (and sometimes downright idiotic) contests to prove which of them should inherit the family title and ''love'' various pranks, puns, comic poetry and alliteration. In the first book they mostly provide comic relief - however, they get their part in the spotlight in the third book.
