The Daily Five: Worst Sidekicks in Gaming

"Gaming’s given us some great companions, sure, but just as often we’ve been stuck with people that we want to kick off a cliff. People so annoying and useless that, at best, serve only to muddy an otherwise fine experience." - Joe Garcia (PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

That has to be the Turtle in the Sly cooper series. He annoys the hell out of me when he screams: "SLLLLYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY Y"

Your comment made me think of Otacon. :)


Really, though as annoying as he is (Otacon) I don't think he necessarily makes it passed their top 5. There a many more annoying characters out there.

He was ok in Vice City, but because he always messed things up in VCS he quickly became one of the most hated antagonists I've ever had the misfortune to experience.

Never did like Zeke. The guy was annoying.

I don't know if we can consider her as a sidekick, but Ashley from Resident Evil 4 was a freaking pain. She made me hate the game so much, which is pretty sad considering I actually liked the new gameplay orientation of the series at this time.

Zeke was a good dude and Navi of course.

Still say the king of annoying sidekicks is Slippy the Toad from Star Fox.
