->'''Sam''': Ed, Larry-- this is Lisa Sherborne from ''Vanity Fair''.\\
'''Lisa''': Which one's Ed, which one's Larry?\\
'''Ed and Larry (simultaneously)''': Doesn't matter.
-->-- ''Series/TheWestWing''

Two characters, usually in a school setting, to be the mundane GreekChorus. They may or may not be [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] and unlike the GreekChorus, they don't [[BreakingTheFourthWall break the fourth wall]] very often (if at all). They're completely ordinary... and no, we don't mean as in the OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent, or the BadassNormal. They're ''[[{{Muggles}} ordinary]]''. Often the [[MuggleBestFriend best friends]] of the main character (who ''is'' an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent) before all the weirdness with aliens, robots, magic, demons, harems, etc.

[[SocialCircleFiller Some pairs become involved in the plot less and less as the series progresses]], especially [[CerebusSyndrome if the plot becomes more serious]]. Given what usually happens to people involved in the plot, it's probably for the best. However, it's not uncommon for Those Two Guys to also become [[EnsembleDarkHorse popular and even iconic characters]] in the series.

Their personalities usually sharply contrast, e.g. calm/hyper, jock/geek, etc., or their appearances contrast, e.g. short/tall, [[FatAndSkinny thin/fat]]... When they don't, they will be exactly the same. They might even wear CoordinatedClothes. Their names are often esoteric (either too complex or too simple to stand out), plus their non-involvement with the plot usually results in them being called "Those Two Guys".

Occasionally, we get a LowerDeckEpisode from their point of view. Expect to ask someone WhoIsThisGuyAgain after a few episodes.

Compare the BetaCouple, HeterosexualLifePartners, TomboyAndGirlyGirl, SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan, StraightManAndWiseGuy, StatlerAndWaldorf and TheDividual. This trope may sometimes overlap with RedOniBlueOni trope (though that trope isn't always exclusive to the Those Two Guys trope). Despite the similar name, ThoseTwoBadGuys have ''very'' different personalities from Those Two Guys... even if they ''are'' bad guys. If there's only one of these guys in a romance-based series, he's likely a BromanticFoil. Also associated to members of a musical group who are not the FaceOfTheBand.

* Sam and Naoko provide the human commentary in ''FanFic/TheReturn'' it's even Lampshaded how everyone else seems to get turned into a succubus but they've hung around the main character for half a million words so far and are still human and un-kidnappedd. When Sunshine reveals she is a succubus, they just look at each other and the loser pays the winner with an "I told you so".
* In the ProfessionalWrestling fanfiction TWE: The Next Generation "Rapid" Ricky Helix and Marcus Cross are just there to make Generation Now more threating. While Dax Din, Claymore Raters, Rena Myers, Nicholas Churchill and Zephyr Jones are more important to the whole story arch.
* In ''Series/{{Glee}}'' fanfiction focusing on Blaine and/or Dalton, Wes and David (frequently called [[PortmanteauCoupleName Wevid]] in-universe) often play this part.
* David Squall (Splashdown) and Edward Surge (Thunderhead) in ''FanFic/RiseOfTheGaleforces.''
* Blooey and Jerry in ''[[FanFic/PaperMarioX Paper Luigi X]]'', with Torque sometimes joining in.
* Ros and Guil in the ''FanFic/{{Horseshoes and Hand Grenades}}'' side-story ''Wheel of Fortune''. Notably they're only name this because no one else knows their real names. [[spoiler: Just like their namesakes, they get killed off.]]
* ''FanFic/MegaManRecut'' has Cut Man and Guts Man. Ring Man and Magnet Man are often found lazing about Skull Fortress together.
* ''FanFic/BetweenMinds'', (VideoGame/HalfLife/VideoGame/{{Portal}}) has Sam and Marcus, who have the short/tall, female/male balance, along with a bit of lampshade-hanging and comic relief.
-->'''Sam''': You might have to actually shoot something this time, big guy!\\
'''Marcus''': You might have to shut up.
* In ''Fanfic/NecessaryToWin'', there's Himeko and Mairu, two members of the Saunders tankery team, who sometimes share their commentary on various developments.
In ''Fanfic/BoysUndSenshado'', there's Gunjin Hayate and Keiibin Kenji, two members of Shark Team. They're said to be friends with each other, and tend to show up together, but don't have much interactions with the rest of their crew, whether Akio and Masaru, or Heishi ([[TheFriendNobodyLikes whom the rest of their crew can't stand]]).
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Ice Skating]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pinball]]

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* The two bystanders of Wrestling/MichinokuProWrestling were often Kinya Oyanagi and Kesen Numajiro.
* When not wrestling as a {{tag team}}, Minoru Fujita, Munenori Sawa and or Takafumi Ito tend to sit around and small talk with Ikuto Hidaka in Wrestling/ProWrestlingZero1.
* Of the monster army waging war against Wrestling/FightingOperaHustle with designs on the entire wrestling industry should they conquer it were Commander An Jo and Private Shimada, who didn't take an active role in the fighting.
* While they eventually became competitors and brought in their title belts from Puerto Rico, La Amazona and La Morena initially served as the self appointed spokeswomen of Ring Warriors in 2012. True to the trope, they were even buddy buddy with longtime rival [[Wrestling/BlackRose La Rosa Negra]], who had already debuted proper and was an inaugural champion of the company. Amazona sort of reprized the role online with Silvie Silver when Rosa debuted for LLF in Mexico (Silver had been there awhile but was unfamiliar with some of the local [[GarbageWrestler quirks]]).
* After losing their manager, AW, the Wrestling/PrimeTimePlayers eventually settled into this role when they weren't {{jobb|er}}ing. They could be found pretty much anywhere, be it breaking up fights in the locker room, cheering on Wrestling/MarkHenry during his [[KingPinInHisGym strongman demonstrations]], competing to woo Wrestling/TaminaSnuka...[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* ''WebAnimation/BrokenSaints'' has two villainous variations: {{Sociopathic Soldier}}s Lt. Charles and Lt. Bravado, and [[GiantMook club bouncers]] Phobos and Deimos. The latter two do fulfill the physical contrast, with one being white and the other [[ScaryBlackMan black]].
* The elderly couple in ''WebAnimation/FairyFoxes''. Also, musical Fairy Foxes Yazzi and Jazzi.
* Mr. Bland and Seņor Having a Little Trouble from ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner''. They both entered the Strongest Man in the World Contest... and only lasted a couple of seconds. They only have ''one line each''. Strong Bad jokingly explained their lack of appearances because they were crushed by a falling concession stand. Most of their appearances are in the cartoons poking fun at the creators' old drawing style.
* Franchise/{{Superman}} and Franchise/{{Batman}} are this in the ''WebAnimation/HowItShouldHaveEnded'' videos. Most of their appearances are both of them sitting in a diner, sometimes with a third superhero.
* Happyman and Green Monster from ''WebAnimation/RatboyGenius''. They almost never appear separately, are usually seen hanging out out at one or the other's house, [[HeterosexualLifePartners frequently ride double on a motorcycle together]], and even take a trip to Washington D.C. as a pair.
** Not to mention traveling to another planet together in the ShowWithinAShow.
[[/folder]]

* TheSharkasmCrew has two outside members who come to tournaments, YEAH and 47. Downplayed in that they always make significant placements on the bracket.
