5 Worst Video Game Sidekicks Ever
#2 The Dog (Duck Hunt)
All we know about this sidekick is that his name is simply 'Dog' and his job was to fetch your kills. But when you had no kills, he would laugh at you and point. What started as a simple joke grew into the first character we hated. Almost every gamer eventually hated that dog with a passion. Half of our bullets were used trying to shoot him in the face instead of the ducks we were hunting.
To his credit, Dog was most likely the first character in a game to show some kind of personality toward the game. But he was a total tool. God forbid you miss a duck. This little douche would pop up out of the tall grass just to ridicule you because you didn't cheat like everybody else by pressing the light gun right up against the TV so you never miss. For these reasons, the dog from Nintendo’s Duck Hunt is almost the worst sidekick ever, if not for our #1 choice on this list.
