** ''Fire Emblem 9'' has Oscar and Kieran, who do not appear together when you first meet them. However Kieran has a not short dialog with Oscar showing them to be another example of this trope. Since Kieran is a self-obsessed duty bound [[UnknownRival ignored self-proclaimed rival]], and Oscar is a laid back lazy relaxed friendly guy who wonders what crawled up Kieran's backside.

* The ''[[{{Franchise/RatchetAndClank}} Ratchet & Clank]]'' series has granted us with a few of these, beginning with [[{{RatchetDeadlocked}} Merc and Green]]. The most well known Those Two Guys happen to be [[{{RatchetAndClankFutureToolsOfDestruction}} Cronk and Zephyr]], who made plenty more appearances since their debut.
* In the Regime Universe of [[InjusticeGodsAmongUs Injustice]], you get shades of it with Regime Flash and Shazam. They aren't Dragons like Wonder Woman and Yellow Lantern, but they're typically fought against together and can be found together in scenes. [[spoiler: The point is driven home when Regime Superman murders Shazam, which causes Flash to jump ship and help the Insurgency.]]

** Lea and Isa play this role in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'', showing up once in Ven's story and then vanishing soon after. Amusing, considering the expanded roles both of them play [[KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories in]] [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts358DaysOver2 the]] [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII later]] [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance games.]] WordOfGod says that this was due to [[PanderingToTheBase fan demand.]]

* Both ''OsuTatakaeOuendan'' and ''EliteBeatAgents'' usually feature two team members that stays constant whenever the difficulty changes, except during the hardest difficulty (where everyone gets replaced by girls). They usually follow their current leader and not the one who did most actions (they did, but not as big as the leader, who also does most poses, especially the rivalry poses in ''Ouendan 2''). Their names:

* Xzar and Montaron from ''BaldursGate'' are supposedly foreign spies, but this vaguely promising premise is not followed up on at all. Xzar in particular is such a useless character that players have been known to kill him deliberately to make room for someone more interesting. Their purpose seems to be simply to bulk out the party until you meet some of the better characters, and it's assumed in the sequel that you ditched them at a fairly early opportunity.

* Corporals Mike and Anton of the Washington National Guard in ''WorldInConflict'' make it all the way from the attack on Seattle, through the nuclear blast in Cascade Falls, then back to the liberation of Seattle. They don't play ''ANY'' role in the story at all but their reunion after getting separated in Cascade Falls just has to make you shed ManlyTears.

* Two Knights in ''Medieval 2 TotalWar'' will always go after your agent if he utterly screwed up. They will never kill him on screen though. Cue YaketySax here.
