The Top 5 Villain Sidekicks in Non-Comic Book Movies
Written by: Max Powers
Sure, there are plenty of great villains and sidekicks in the pages of your comic books. But comics aren't the only place you will find some great villain sidekicks
Sidekicks are the right-hand men and women of your favorite villains. They're often the ones who do most of the work that makes the villain look good.
This article will remind you of the top 5 villain sidekicks in non-comic book movies.
1) LeFou, Beauty and the Beast
One of the best qualities to have in a sidekick is loyalty.
Lefou, sidekick to Gaston was nothing if not loyal. Lefou went along with whatever Gaston had planned. He waited on Gaston hand and foot. Some might even argue that Lefou was in love with Gaston, but that's a debate for another time.
2) Diablo, Sleeping Beauty
There's nothing like a sidekick who can also fly.
Diablo from Sleeping Beauty is the raven sidekick of Maleficent, Mistress of all Evil. When looking for a creature to do your bidding, it's hard to find one better than a bird.
Birds can fly anywhere you want them to go and have a great vantage point to spy on any situation.
3) Bellatrix Lestrange, Harry Potter
It's hard to find a character more deliciously evil than Bellatrix Lestrange.
Bellatrix lived to serve the needs of her master, Voldemort. She lived for him, killed for him, and ultimately died for him.
Bellatrix was devoted to Voldemort in a way that few sidekicks are. Through out the Harry Potter series we see Bellatrix fawn over Voldemort, even falling at his feet a few times.
4) Winged Monkeys, Wizard of Oz
Without her tribe of winged monkeys, the Wicked Witch of the West would have been a lot less scary.
The winged monkeys are the sidekicks that scared children everywhere. They were evil and served the queen. While not quite a bird, they had all the perks of being one including flying and higher vantage points.
5) Iago, Aladdin
What did I tell you about birds? They make great sidekicks.
Iago is the evil sidekick of Disney villain Jafar. His red and blue coloring make him more conspicuous than Diablo, but he still mostly gets the job done.
Enjoy These Villain Sidekicks
We hope this list of villain sidekicks takes you back to watching these movies. There is something very fascinating about movie villains and the sidekicks who serve them. The loyalty that is found in the bond over evil is simply fun to watch.
It's satisfying to watch villains lose but there is also something interesting when a movie villain wins at the end.
