King Dedede. Victor Sullivan. Leonardo da Vinci. Tooie. These are all second-string sidekick characters from famous video games that deserve a chance to steal the spotlight and break out into lead protagonist stardom. On this episode of Power Button, Blake Grundman and I discuss our favorite sidekicks, villains, and supporting characters that we'd like to see take center stage in adventures of their own. Some sidekicks are lucky and are promoted up to central star, but for every Luigi or Zero there's a Dr. Wily or Captain Qwark waiting in the wings.
