Sidekicks [[RecklessSidekick often get themselves into trouble]], so the hero can rescue them. They also give the hero or MrExposition someone to explain the plot to. In the finale, they may line up against the EvilMinions. (The reason why they are called sidekicks and not the Good Minions is part tradition and inertia, and part the differences between the two relationships -- because the hero and sidekick both are heroic, reciprocal bonds of loyalty and friendship are far more likely than between the villain and his minions.)
