People can say whatever they want to about sidekicks/best friends, but they are just as important as the heroes of the stories. They are the moral compass and emotional support of the people that get all the credit. Like, Robin Hood wouldn’t have gotten as much gold as he did without the help of Little John. Scott McCall would have totally sucked as a werewolf without the help of Stiles. Who would Sherlock Holmes be without John Watson? Harry without Ron and Hermione, or Shrek without Donkey? And SpongeBob without Patrick? Batman without Robin? Kim Possible without Ron Stoppable (and Rufus, of course)? Need I go on?
