* He's by no means a ''sidekick'', but ex-00 Agent Jack Hunter from ''VideoGame/GoldeneyeRogueAgent'' is heavily implied to have been this. It's what gets him dismissed from MI6 and hired by Goldfinger.

* Miko Mai of ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'', quite infamously, is always hankering to [[LeeroyJenkins charging off into action, especially if that means combat, alongside her friends]] and has directly endangered them at least half a dozen times as a result of this. The kicker? Miko is a 15-16 year old Japanese schoolgirl. Her friends -- and their enemies -- are ''giant alien robot killing machines'', all of which are armed to the teeth, covered in armor that resists most conventional Earth firearms, nevermind the improvised weapons Miko tries to use, and big enough that they could easily squish her underfoot like a bug. Despite this, Miko just never seems to learn that she has no place in the actual combat.

* ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo'': Scrappy Doo. Cynical fans wished that Scooby would stop picking Scrappy up during his "Puppy Powerrrr!" charge and let the MonsterOfTheWeek eat him (though [[FridgeLogic considering all of the monsters of the week were old men in costumes, Scrappy might have been able to take them]]). [[labelnote:And]] part of why [[TheScrappy Scrappy is hated]] is that, since he's always willing to attack the monster, he rather wrecks the WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief that keeps us from asking why the ''others'' don't try it.[[/labelnote]]

This, incidentally, has given her a {{hatedom}} similar to the one enjoyed by Scrappy Doo, and for pretty much the same reasons.
** Very thankfully, this phase [[CharacterDevelopment starts to die in season two]]. [[spoiler:She even [[Awesome/TransformersPrime holds her own in season three]] with the help of the Apex Armor.]]

* Intentionally inverted in ''A Lonely Place of Dying'', where Batman, who has sworn to no longer take in a sidekick after the death of Jason Todd, has started becoming brash and impulsive without "someone to look after." Standing right outside a building he is about to investigate, Nightwing, the original Robin now all grown up, shows up to assist him. When Nightwing asks for a plan, Batman shrugs him off and jumps right into the building, [[spoiler:walking right into a trap]].
* Tim Drake chose to become Robin precisely because he believed Batman needed a sidekick to keep him on the right path.
