5 Worst Video Game Sidekicks Ever
#3 Slippy (Star Fox)
Each member of the Star Fox team has their own special quality: Fox is obviously the leader, Falco's kind of a tough loner, Peppy's a seasoned veteran, Krystal's the token independent woman, and Slippy is a complete liability. Most of the game involved saving Slippy repeatedly because of his 1st grade pilot skills. And then Star Fox Command made it worse by showing Slippy's equally hideous girlfriend.
Why is Slippy on the team again? Seriously, how many times have you heard: “WOAH! HELP ME!” while playing Star Fox 64. Slippy couldn't fly his ship out of a paper bag, he’s always whining about taking hits and he does nothing to fight back. He really has no reason to be part of the group. Two words come to mind when you see Slippy: Cannon Fodder. Plus his voice was just annoying as hell.
Slippy may have been attacked a lot, but he didn't make us WANT to attack him the way our next sidekick did...
