The 6 Most Awesome Sidekicks


In addition to your main character, you often get someone who can help you smack around the baddies.

1. Dogmeat (Fallout 3)

For those of you who’ve played Fallout 3, if asked to remember one companion, almost always that companion would be Dogmeat.

Just a regular dog in the wastelands, fighting to survive, you show him the act of kindness of saving his doggy-behind and he becomes a loyal companion.

Now only if he was easier to keep alive.

2. Kazooie (Banjo and Kazooie)

Arguably a main character as her name is on the title, Kazooie is none-the-less Banjo’s backup.

He’s the brawn, she’s the…utility.

Flying, shooting eggs, steep hill climbing, the works. Banjo wouldn’t have been able to finish his quest without her and that makes her awesome.

3. HK-47 (Knights of the Old Republic)

The genocidal assassin who refers to everyone (except you) as a meatbag.

His sense of humor is hilariously tainted with his serial killer tendencies, and his dialogue alone makes him more than able to make this list.
