    Rajah's 2021 Top Twenty Movie Sidekicks

    I thought a nice middle chapter to Villains and Heros would be sidekicks. Good or Evil, the partners of our lead players usually add quite a bit to the movie you're watching.

    I thought this could give lesser villains we missed a chance to shine and maybe narrow down the choices for the upcoming Hero countdown.

    PM me your top 20 film sidekicks. Your choice, not best ever just your personal top 20. I will grade by a point system, displayed below.

    20- 1 point
    19- 2 points
    18- 3 points
    Etc. Etc. Etc.
    3- 18 points
    2- 19 points
    1- 20 points

    I will do a big countdown, including all picks, but put more focus on the top twenty.

    I figure we can start this up in the end of November. Plenty of time to get a list going!

    Here is a quick countdown that features different kinds of sidekicks to get your brain flowing.

    Hmm interesting one. I can't even think of 20 sidekicks off the top of my head so I'll need to do some digging.

    That video you posted includes Walter from Big Lebowski. Great character, but does he qualify as a sidekick? I would say no. He's a supporting character.

    Samwise Gamgee for sure. Chewbacca for sure. R2D2 maybe.

    Sidekick or support is a fine line for sure but could be similar depending on the individual making the list. Sort of why I was curious to do this. I thought results would be fun to see.

    I've thought of 21 so far.

    I would say R2D2 is Luke's side kick. C3PO as well but to a lesser extent.

    R2D2 is no man's sidekick.

    Harrison Ford could add several

    Indiana Jones alone could qualify several.

    And obviously Chewbacca

    I think once people sit down and think about it they will start pouring out of your brain.

    My list has inflated to 29 as of now. I'm still thinking on things.

    1-18: Robin
    19: Samwise
    20: Hit Girl from Kick Ass

    We could probably come up with 20 and then just debate the shit out of whether or not they're actually a sidekick.

    I'm sure there will be plenty of debate on whether or not they are sidekicks.

    Robin is interesting since it's movies. There are different variations to the character but nothing that ever knocked my socks off and I'm a huge Robin mark.

    He was talking about Robin Williams as The Genie.


    That's a freaking sidekick. They had a whole song about it.

    Hes his astromech. I mean based on the series as a whole r2d2 would be more apt to be c3po's sidekick seeing how r2d2 always got him into all kinds of shit.

    I guess so. Do we really want the other six riding Grumpy's coattails though?

    Well there's only really been two (I don't count Joseph Gordon Levitt). Burt Ward and Chris O'Donnell. Now we could definitely stretch into animated movies because there's a shit ton that have came out over the last 10-15 years thanks to DC's animated universe. In all seriousness there are definitely sidekicks that will make my list other than the 3 mentioned lol.

    Everyone's #1 should be Jonathan Brandis.

    I didn't mind O'Donnell so much in Forever. I tried doing karate on my laundry for a bit but it never ended up well for my chubby ass.

    Burt Ward is a classic. I liked that classic movie because it had all the villains in it. I had that boat scene fight memorized when I was a kid.

    Jonathan Brandis is the man. Lady Bugs is underrated.

    That was a deep cut on that Sidekicks reference.

    Joe Piscopo's finest work. Just missed our villains list

    Henchmen work for the big bad guys. Harry and Marv are freelancers.

    Kevin is. If his character was real, he'd be Killing hookers by making them step on Christmas ornaments and then slamming their heads with paint cans by now.

    He kind of looks like a guy who's about to act out his manifesto any day now.

    Silent Bob is a good debate. I think because Jay never shuts the fuck up it appears that there's a hierarchy in their relationship but IDK. They're more of a tag-team. They're The Rock N Sock Connection.

    Wilson was one I thought of right off the bat too. Tom was lucky to have that ball!

    Styles from Teem Wolf is a good addition.

    Don't forget Tinkerbell. Did you leave her out because Peter Pan is no longer politically correct?

    True. I only go for PC characters. Like Tonto and Smee.

    I got daughters. I think of Tinkerbell on all that other stuff Disney has now. Where she's the star.


    But absolutely true, she was a sidekick in Pan.


    That also reminds me of a few others.

    Well that was actually easier than I thought. A mixed bag of personal and professional choices.

    I know there are a few people that we could debate which portrayal but for the sake of my sanity I didn't specify which versions of Spock and Robin, just the characters in general.

    I would say no, because they are in the title of the film. If they are on the marquee they are headliners, not a sidekick. But I'm just being Dopey and Grumpy at the same time.

    No sir. Michael Gough deserves a spot, as other Alfred's do too I'm sure.

    The only movie Alfred that I would even remotely consider him being a sidekick would be anything dealing with the Ben Affleck Batman. Even then it would be an extreme stretch because he was barely in them. The mentor can't be a sidekick can he? I guess we'll find out.

    Batman and Robin with Clooney as Batman. Robin is clearly the sidekick.

    That's where I was at. Wouldn't consider him or Mick (Rocky) as sidekicks because of the teaching/mentor relationship

    Robin from the Lego Batman Movie is underappreciated

    I think Alfred's a mentor to begin with but eventually he segways into a part time sidekick role.

    Does Q from the Bond movies count? He always came up with the best gadgets.

    The Minions deserve some love

    Again for me it depends on which movie Alfred we're talking about. To me Alfred is about as much of a sidekick to Batman as Superman would be.

    I thought of one. Aresenio Hal as Semmi in Coming to America.

    Also maybe Judge Reinhold in Beverly Hills Cop. He was the sidekick to the other cop.

    Arsenio from America is a great call.

    Richard Hayden is great and made my list as well.

    Ones I haven't seen mentioned yet is Barf from Spaceballs and Smokey from Friday.

    Tough but should have some surprises in store. I enjoyed villains but like some said the Top 3 were sorta predictable.

    I'm curious to see Stallone's new cut of the film but heard they edited the robot out which makes me sad.

    I'm sure Apollo still dies too which still makes me sad. I fucking cried when I saw that when I was a kid. Apollo was awesome and loved how he became Rocky's trainer in III.

    Good call on Semmi.

    I know they are mostly known for TV, but Madagascar aside, Andy Richter will probably never rise above his role as Conan's sidekick. Since they both appeared in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, I think he's eligible. But can the ultimate second banana make the top 20?

    I’m not sure about McLovin. He’s their third wheel and pretty sidekicky but then he also spends most of the movie on his own adventure

    He is the best part of that movie IMO. And he ends up becoming far cooler than either of the leads. Such a great character

    Unsure if he’s a sidekick

    McLovin is just a sidekick that gets himself over too, like Damien Mizdow.

    This is a good point on him having more independent ventures. I'm not completely dropping him from sidekick, but it will effect the ranking.

    You still have a couple weeks if you want Melly.

    Mazer posted a big list above.

    No worries though!

    "There was me, that is Alex, and my three droogs, that is Pete, Georgie, and Dim, and we sat in the Korova Milkbar trying to make up our rassoodocks what to do with the evening. The Korova milkbar sold milk-plus, milk plus vellocet or synthemesc or drencrom, which is what we were drinking. This would sharpen you up and make you ready for a bit of the old ultra-violence."

    Pete, Georgi, and Dim. Should they be counted as one entry or 3 separate?

    Personally I look at them as the original 4 Horsemen. Tully wasn't Flair's sidekick, neither were the Andersons, but Flair was definitely the leader. Alex didn't have a sidekick, except for his pet snake.

    4 so far. I would like plenty more but will run with whatever gets entered. Take your time 3pups will look to get this off the ground soon though.

    A friendly reminder or invite to everyone from the last list. Please enter one!

    I’ll try and knock something up by Sunday if you’re looking to start something up quick. Will be unemployed (voluntarily) by this time next midweek so if still open by then, will get you a decent list.

    Nice. Ask your friend too! I forgot Nick's list came from you. I tagged a NicK too who might see this and have no clue why they were tagged. Feel free to get involved other NicK!

    I say submit what you have. Even if it's 10 why not? They're probably 10 great sidekicks. Like Brandis.
