* "Mama Says" from the musical version of ''{{Footloose}}'' gives Ren's best friend Willard his chance to (hilariously) shine. Rusty gets her version in "Let's Hear It for the Boy".

* Mozart seems to have been fond of these: both Leporello in ''DonGiovanni'' and Papageno in ''Theatre/TheMagicFlute'' get them. So do quite a few secondary characters in ''Theatre/TheMarriageofFigaro'', which also puts the officially-a-sidekick Figaro in the lead.

* "I'm Just a Sidekick" from {{A Very Potter Senior Year}} for Ron Weasley. Double points for being almost entirely about accepting his position as a sidekick.

* ''{{Rent}}'' has "Today 4 You", Angel's upbeat and bouncy song... [[LyricalDissonance about killing a dog]], "Over the Moon", where Maureen implements a nursery rhyme into a nonsensical performance art piece, and "Santa Fe", about Collins' dream of opening a restaurant out west.

* {{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.
