Command-line scanners are also useful because they have no graphical user interface, use less memory, and only use memory when you run them:
Section 3.7 on page 3 of the best free security list

They usually don't have in-memory detection of malware which only came with memory-resident versions that were always active. I'm not up with the latest versions so this might have changed.
