* The ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' video game series features repeated incarnations of Those Two Guys, invariably named [[MauveShirt Biggs]] and [[AdaptationExpansion Wedge]] after two minor characters from ''StarWars'' (tropes that the names link to are tropes of the Star Wars characters).

* An especially weird example occurs in ''KingdomHearts'' where Donald and Goofy objectively fill this role as "normal" characters, despite technically being much more well-known than the Squeenix-born characters.

* ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'' has Lou and Bud, two minor characters who appear in chapter 1. Every time Bud says something, Lou slaps him. It's [[BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine a form of Japanese Comedy]].
** That's because they're references to [[Creator/AbbottAndCostello Bud Abbot and Lou Costello]].

** ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden Shadows of Valentia]]'' does this to Gray and Tobin on Alm's side, and Mae and Boey from Celica's team. It's played with somewhat, as both pairs have more plot relevance than usual for this trope, but the majority of their screen time still tends to involve each other or their respective lord. The main conflict is driven by Alm and Celica overall, and, as with most other Fire Emblem ThoseTwoGuys, each pair has [[StraightManAndWiseGuy contrasting]] [[SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl personalities]].

** ''Fire Emblem 14'' has an interesting subversion of the usual theme with Saizo and Kaze. They're two guys (in this case brothers) with contrasting personalities and a red/green motif who both serve the royal family...but they're ninjas, not cavaliers, and are rarely seen together. They both have their own subplots that the other isn't involved in much, and many of the times they are seen together, they're in conflict, making them not an example of this trope. However, several of the royal retainer pairs in the game do fit this trope, particularly Hinata/Oboro and Setsuna/Azama. Odin/Niles also have a similar dynamic, although Odin has a major backstory and ties to characters other than Niles, so they may not entirely count.
