Top 10 Weirdest Video Game Sidekicks

By Aron Gerencser June 16, 2021

Weighted Companion Cubes - Portal series: The Weighted Companion Cube "will never threaten to stab you, and, in fact, cannot speak". The object probably isn't alive, so why is it a companion?

Ralph - Sleepwalker: Sleepwalker is arguably just as weird of a game as the sidekick that we're about to introduce to you. In fact, we're not even sure if Ralph is a sidekick.

Claptrap - Borderlands series: The thing with Claptrap is that you can't get away from him. He will figuratively grow on you because he's always going to be with you.

Mimir - God of War (2018): Mimir serves as more or less an entertainer who regales both Atreus and Kratos with stories and tales about Odin and the other Nordic gods.

Baby Mario - Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island: Why Nintendo thought it was a good idea to put a baby version of Mario as his sidekick is something that's just beyond us.

Blade Wolf - Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance: It's a robot wolf with a chainsaw attached to its body.

Lily Bowen - Fallout: New Vegas: Lily's frightening voice is just an effect of the Forced Evolutionary Virus.

Johnson - Shadows of the Damned: You've got a trusty demon sidekick that can become a gun, torch, motorcycle, and an overall awesome sidekick that is equal parts weird and indispensable.

Quina - Final Fantasy IX: Quina devours enemies alive to extract the skills from unwitting victims as they find themselves slowly digested.

Nick - Lollipop Chainsaw: Nick is the main character's boyfriend, who she wears on her belt after he gets bitten by a zombie and ends up living on as a severed head.
