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.

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.
