MorphCostumes created this easy-to-read infographic that features well-known and overlooked pop culture sidekicks. While many people assume superheroes must always have a sidekick, these helpful companions are actually present in many other genres as well.
This guide helps viewers see partnerships by drawing the pop culture sidekicks in front of the main character. This way the audience can fully recognize who they are. For example, from Lord of the Rings Frodo is the main character but Samwise Sam Gamgee is always there for him. Additionally, Luigi Mario is the sidekick in the Nintendo game and even Donkey is the cheery companion to Shrek.
The infographic displays unique illustrations of each protagonist and their friendly companions. Even if these sidekicks are overlooked, they are also a true testament to friendship and loyalty.
