Top 5 80s Movie Sidekicks

I'd definitely pick Stiles. Although there's a lot missing from this list, but it's a good place to start.

Gedde Watanabe is great!
Just saw him in Volunteers.

And you gotta love Curtis Armstrong.
Great role also in Better Off Dead.

But i have to choose Alan "Cameron" Ruck.
I love everybody and everything in Ferris Bueller´s Day Off.

I'd have to say no, more a sensi than a sidekick.

I'd ask the same question about my choice: does Master Yoda count as a sidekick? If so, then choose Yoda, I will.

Of those given in the list, Cameron gets my first choice. If we were to expand it to the whole decade, it would for me be a tie between Elwood and Barf.

How about Marcus from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade? Or Sloth from The Goonies? The Frog Brothers from Lost Boys? I always loved those characters. I also vote for Doc from Back to the Future!

Number 1 for me is Wade Garrett from Road House "He's still the Best"

Evil from Fright Night has to be the most Annoying sidekick.

I'll go with Rell the cyclops from Krull. He was the best! I always cry when he dies in the movie.

Secret Admirer, I have viewed "Krull."

I remember the scene where Rell the cyclops is killed very well.

Krull is one of my 'haven't seen' 80's movies-I recently bought it new on DVD for $3.99 at a local drugstore. Now I know this guy dies and it will be sad!
