How Many Of These Movie Sidekicks Can You Name? Take Our Quiz To Test Your Knowledge!

Let Our Expert Quiz Confirm It For You

We all dream of being the hero of our own movie, don’t we? At least every once in a while, all of us imagine our own lives played out as a big-screen adventure or romance in which we are the lead, all the central action revolves around us and all the major developments hinge on the decisions that we make.

However, in movies as in life, you’re not going to get too far without friends – and it might be argued that any hero is only as strong as their sidekick. This supporting character could be the lead’s lifelong best pal; alternatively, they might be someone with whom the hero has a slightly antagonistic relationship, but which develops into an unexpected respect. Whatever the case may be, if the hero doesn’t have anyone to bounce off, it’s going to make it that bit trickier for the audience to develop any kind of connection to them.

Alas, the sidekick’s lot isn’t always a happy one. Sometimes they’re left for dead, giving the hero motivation for revenge; other times they stay by the sidelines, without much clear purpose other than to cheer the hero on. Worse yet, they have a tendency to be completely forgotten about by the audience.

Do you appreciate the value of a good movie sidekick? If you think the answer’s yes, then go ahead and prove it by taking our test. See if you can correctly name all the supporting characters listed here, and we’ll tell you whether or not you really know your sidekicks!

Beginning as a blog posting on 80s and 90s life as well as the movies, music and television of the era, Eighties Kids has in a short space of time exploded in scope and ambition. Operating out of Eighties Kids HQ in sunny Ilkley, in the North of England, today a growing team of writers produces original content day in and day out for one of the best new nostalgia sites on the web.
