* TamoraPierce gives us lots of these in her [[Literature/TortallUniverse Tortall]] books; there's Raoul and Gary in the ''Literature/SongOfTheLioness'' series, Miri and Evan in ''Literature/TheImmortals'' quartet, Merric and Seaver in the ''Literature/ProtectorOfTheSmall'' sequence, and in ''Literature/ProvostsDog'' we have Aniki and Kora (on the outlaw side) and Verene and Ersken for the Dogs. [[spoiler:The latter breaks when Verene is killed on duty.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Craig and Fry, the two employees assigned by the American insurance company as bodyguards to watch over Kin-Fo in Creator/JulesVerne's ''Tribulations of a Chinaman in China''. Inseparable and largely indistinguishable (they are cousins), they appear like spiritual ancestors of the [[Franchise/{{Tintin}} Thom(p)sons]], if a bit more competent.

Added DiffLines:

* In the eigth book of the ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'':
** Scorch and Leff. Never seen without each other, they hang around in the background of Torvald Nom's story arc and are his only subordinates when he becomes captain of Lady Varada's house guard, but otherwise have little significance beside being comic relief. They also [[TheDividual act as one entity]] throughout the book.
** Lazan Door and Madrun Badrun. The former is tall, almost skeletal, and bald, while the other is broad-shouldered, short-legged and shaggy-haired. One wears a whispy cloak, the other is clothed like a court-jester. They are always together, and appear to be Studious Lock's accomplices. They also serve as a sinister contrast to Scorch and Leff's comic relief.

* ''Creator/DaveBarry's Only Travel Guide You'll Ever Need'' claims that Liechtenstein and Luxembourg are not countries at all but "minor characters in Creator/WilliamShakespeare's famous play ''Hamlet II: The Next Day''."

* ''Literature/{{Ivanhoe}}'' opens on two Anglo-Saxons: Gurth, a swineherd, and Wamba, a jester. They playfully banter, making a linguistic observation in the style of Creator/StevenWright. Wamba misdirects the local man of the cloth and a Knight Templar away from the home of Cedric, the local thane, in order to protect Cedric's daughter from unwanted advances. (They make it to the castle anyway, making for an uncomfortable dinner.) While it would be an exaggeration to call those two main characters, they do get more characterization and some plot-relevant moments later in the book; Wamba even manages to [[spoiler:free his master Cedric from his jail cell in their enemies' castle]] virtually all by himself, by the simple expedient of a clever disguise.
