I mean...guys like Spock and Bones, for example.
Where would James T. Kirk be without them?
What other sidekicks do you have a soft spot for?

We know how many Kennys we loath...but what about the heroic assistants? Who would we like to have covering our back when the Aliens invaders/serial killers/monsters, ect, come callin'?

Even though he was often used for comic relief, I liked Smiley Burnette as a cowboy sidekick. He frequently worked with Gene Autry, but I liked him when he worked with Sunset Carson. In CALL OF THE ROCKIES (one of my favorites), Smiley was as much a part of the story as Sunset and as much a hero. When the two of them worked together, there was both a sense of humor as well an intelligence to their interactions. Why did they call him Sunset? Because when he hit you, you only saw nighttime and stars (heh..heh).

Actually, I think that the Feral kid from Mad Max 2 (aka Road Warrior) was more of a sidekick that Goose. I mean, Goose's character pulled a friggen gun on him when Max showed up. (Actually, it could've been a crossbow... meh.)

Come to think of it though Bruce Spence did sort of turn out to be a sidekick at points in Road Warrior. The whole "We're Partners" thing and how he comes to save max tward the end of the movie and all. Max sorta had 2 sidekicks throughout the movie, even though the kid was more like a dirty Robin to Max's Batman. I guess you could support any argument though depending on how you look at it.  

The Goose is a badass. Just had to be said.

How about the hunchback in "Captain Chronos, Vampire Hunter".  He was the one who did all the non-fighting work... carrying stuff, knowing lore, forging the holy sword, etc.  
Or Kris Kristofferson in Blade?

You guys are looking at this all wrong...The Gyro Captain, the Feral Kid, neither of these guys was the side kick for Max really. You're overlooking "Dog", the trusty companion who did numerous things to help out Max. He attacked the Gyro Captain and gave Max the upper hand and ability to pull a knife out and hold it to the GC's neck. He held a bone that was attached to a wire which was attached to the trigger on the sawed-off that was pointing at the GC's head in the car. He even gave his life to allow Max a chance after they crashed the Falcon. Dog, was the real sidekick.
Though I do have to agree that the Goose was da man in the first movie.

Okay, I'll bite.

How 'bout the car?  Max was nuthin' without the supercharged V-8.  The car was awesome.

So, the score currently stands:

Mad Max:

Goose
Car

Road Warrior:

The Feral Kid
Gyro Captain
Dog
Car

Beyond Thunderdome:

{never saw it}
