Go Fanboy's Top 5 Worst Side Kicks in Video Game History

E-mail Print PDF

A lot of games have them and a lot of them are annoying. We're of course talking about side kicks in video games. Whether your favorite genre is the classic platformer or you're more into hardcore action shooters, chances are you've had an annoying side kick at some point.

We run down our top five worst side kicks of all-time. It's not likely that you'll agree with them all, but you're certain to remember how some of these number twos bugged you at some point.

#5 Mayu - Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly
Mayu is the older sister in Fatal Frame 2 and is supposed to have a higher level of spiritual power or awareness. Makes sense since there are ghosts everywhere right? The only problem is she’s a major liability who does nothing but serve herself up as ghost bait and complain all the time. No one likes a whiny game character. On more than one occasion we’ve all wanted to let her die after being possessed. That’s not too harsh right?

#4 Kazooie - Banjo and Kazooie series
Kazooie is a red bird who apparently keeps a porn collection hidden in the abackpack of the bear he lives with. Either that or Banjo is his life-partner, because we can’t figure out a logical reason for this bird taking up residence on Banjo’s back. Outside of occasionally (read: rarely) flying around and shaking his tail feathers, this bird is borderline useless.

#3 Slippy the Toad - Starfox series
It’s not hard to find fault with Slippy. That’s because there’s pretty much nothing to like about this whiny character. The high-pitched voice screeches out of your TV everytime this turd of a character is getting shot up. Sadly Slippy gets shot up a lot. We’re just not sure who thought a humanoid toad flying a spaceship was a good idea. We just assume Nintendo ran out of animal in the design process. Slippy sucks!
