Well, most of them are actually sidekicks, but a couple are, well... sidekicks of sidekicks. Marvin and Wendy are essentially sidekicks to the Superfriends, and Wonder Dog is their sidekick. Anyway, using the term sidekick loosely, practically anyone can be a sidekick given the proper situation or setting.

Eh, maybe so. I think most people have a fairly clear, even if not precise, idea of what they think a sidekick is. If you stretch it too far, they might not feel like voting for it, unless your argument is compelling (or, depending on their mood, amusing might be sufficient ).

In Star Wars, for instance, I think some CLEAR sidekicks are R2 and Chewie. I think Jar-Jar (if anybody was stupid enough to pick him) would be arguable, since he kind of fills a sidekick-y role, but I'm not too clear on exactly WHOSE sidekick he would be considered. Somebody like Han, while not THE main character, I'm having a hard time picturing as a sidekick, so I'm waiting for the compelling (or amusing ) argument on that one.

But actually, your post made me wonder if maybe I should have tried to make a whole team of characters like Wonder Dog that ARE sidekicks of sidekicks. That's actually a decent theme.

I thought people might see a problem with Han Solo, but especially in A New Hope, Han just exists to facilitate what Luke does. He's his driver, he leaves and then he comes back at the end, just to help Luke along.

And then in Empire and Jedi, that's when he's got his own stuff going on as a character. But in the first movie, he's definitely a sidekick.

With both of them, I'd say "non human sidekicks".

I'll give you that. It's REALLY close to my original idea for the theme, and Tech Support fits it pretty well. And as I said, here's your cookie.

Since we've finished round 6 (which I believe is the final round?) I suppose I could just tell you what the theme is. I thought it would be more obvious than it apparently is (which may not bode well come to think of it). Or would you rather guess until the official reveal?

OK, my team name is "Sufferin' Sidekicks!"

and is made up of sidekicks that are verbally and/or physically abused, and just generally disrespected, by those they serve.

I realize that "suffering" might not really apply to some of the more oblivious ones, like Pinky or Kronk, who generally miss or just shrug off their abuse, but I needed a catchy team name, and I thought it was a decent fit.
