* {{Spring Awakening}}: ''My Junk''. It's a rare non-{{angst}} song where the girls sing about their crushes, one guy sings about his crush on his piano teacher and another sings about his love of masturbation. {{Hilarity ensues}}.

In the same way that the VillainSong is the classic moment for the villain of a musical to have a chance to shine and expand upon their philosophy of life, the SidekickSong is the chance for the [[PluckyComicRelief hero's comedy sidekick]] to have his or her moment [[{{Disney/Frozen}} in the sun]]—have a few laughs, spread the joy, that sort of thing. The {{Sidekick Song}} typically explains why the Sidekick’s [[{{Disney/Aladdin}} abilities]] and/or [[Disney/TheLionKing philosophy]] are [[Disney/BeautyandtheBeast of service]] to TheHero. The Sidekick may also perform the IAmGreatSong for the Hero or Villain, as they may be [[HumbleHero too humble]] to do it for themselves, or they may need a PepTalkSong. Yet, the SidekickSong may have little to do with TheHerosJourney at all, and is rather about Sidekick’s own [[IWantSong dreams and ambitions]]. The song doesn't have to be positive but usually is. The SidekickSong can sometimes be combined with the VillainSong for {{Anti Villain}}s or {{Magnificent Bastard}}s.

* "A Friend Like Me" from ''{{Disney/Aladdin}}'', though Genie fans might consider "One Jump Ahead" to be the ''true'' SidekickSong.

* One of the [[CutSong Cut Songs]] from ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' was supposed to be one for Mushu. Yao, Ling, and Chien-Po get a song in the form of "A Girl Worth Fighting For" which has a reprise in the sequel, along with the background soldiers, although Mulan does sing one line of it--which is immediately rejected by the three as silly.

* An unusual example in ''[[Literature/JohnnyMaxwellTrilogy Only You Can Save Mankind]]: The Musical''. Bigmac is one of Johnny's sidekicks, and he gets the song "My Brother's Eyes". Only Bigmac's subplot is the most serious part of the story, and the song reflects that.

* ''{{Rent}}'' has "Today 4 You", an upbeat and bouncy song... [[MoralDissonance about killing a dog]], "Out Tonight", about Mimi enjoying what time she has left, and "Santa Fe", about Collins' dream of opening a restaurant out west.

* "Everything's Up To Date In Kansas City", "I Cain't Say No" and "All Er Nothing" from ''{{Oklahoma}}!'' provide a set of songs for the comic relief ''[[BetaCouple couple]]''. Meanwhile, "It's A Scandal! It's A Outrage!" provides one for the [[TricksterArchetype peddler]] Ali Hakeem.

* [[{{ExactlyWhatitSaysOnTheTin}} ''Secondary Characters'']] from TitleOfShow is the most [[{{LampshadeHanging}} self-referential]] example, as well as a ''sidekick duet''. ''"I Am Playing Me"'' and ''"A Way Back to Then"'' are about Heidi's apprehension over her career while ''"Die, Vampire, Die!"'' is about Susan's quirky outlook on being an artist. ''"What Kind of Girl Is She?"'' is about a (potential) rivalry between the two.

* "I Like Him" and "A Little Gossip" from ''ManOfLaMancha'' neatly sum up (with a few interjections from Aldonza) Sancho Panza's personality.
