3 Best Sidekicks to a Hero
Wikipedia's definition of sidekick: A sidekick is a stock character, a close companion who assists a partner in a superior position.
1. The Attorney in "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" - a good sidekick can pull strings to help the hero out, and talk the hero down from his bad acid trip
2. Samwise Gamgee in "The Lord of the Rings" - his devotion bordered on creepy at times
3. Jem in "To Kill a Mockingbird" - Scout would probably not have been so interesting without her brother
(I wanted to pick Ron and Hermione, but I include Harry Potter in almost every one of these lists, and the host, Lost in Books, already chose them anyways.)
P.S. The photo of Jules, one of my favorite movie sidekicks, came from ALLStar500 on deviantART.
