Today’s Question:

Who is your favorite video game sidekick?


Sidekicks to me are great additions to any story or video game. Holding a similar place in my heart as villains. Notable sidekicks like Daffy Duck, Tom from Tom & Jerry and Donald Duck have always been my favorites. But what about video game sidekicks?


Diddy Kong is a sidekick that made a name for himself. Following behind his famous Dad Donkey Kong, Diddy was inserted into games where he is the secondary character. Currently, my friend Emily is playing Donkey Kong Country on the SNES Classic. Diddy has climbed the ranks and started starring in his own titles, most notably, Diddy Kong Racing. While Diddy is a great candidate, he is not my favorite video game sidekick.


Miles “ Tails” Prower is my favorite video game sidekick of all time. Tails is amazing, he can fly, he’s kind and he’s super smart. My first encounter with Tails happened in Sonic 2 where you could play with the two-tailed fox. I really loved having Tails as the sidekick and longed to play with him alone. Low and behold Sonic and Tails allowed me to do just that with playing with Tails, Sonic or both characters. A good sidekick has the main protagonists back, provides assistance when needed and can always be called upon to help. Tails has definitely gotten Sonic out of sticky situations and his willingness to stay by his friend’s side, earns him the spot as my favorite video game sidekick!

    1. Sadly I have never played the Spyro game. But aren’t they making a new Spyro game? Maybe this can be my chance lol.

      1. You’re right, Spyro Reignited Trilogy will be released in September and it is a remaster of the original three games. I’m definitely going to be picking it up and I think it would be an ideal opportunity for people who missed out playing the original games.
