Ginger Sidekick

Our hero's friend and constant companion is red-headed.

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
Do we have this one? I've looked and it doesn't appear to be anywhere.

Usually their friend from the very beginning and will remain so until the very end. Bonus Points if they're a little chubby or nerdy (or at least to begin with).

    We have Redheads Are Uncool. The best place to look for it would have been the Hair Colors page. It includes being chubby, nerdy, and a friend to the main character. If you want to write a YKTTW please read the Zero Context Example page. If you can say how any of your examples apply, you can add them to Redheads Are Uncool.

    Plus this doesn't really look like a trope, as their doesn't seem to be any kind of reason for the red hair, and sidekicks just as often have hair in other colors.

    Was going to add for the reason that they're the nerdy, uncool, ones - which red hair generally symbolises or, if they're not uncool (Donna, Amy, Gwen, Jazz and Tyler) they're a fiery red head, which either matches who they're sidekick to or is the opposite. Usually the lead (or one of them) is brunette and having a ginger sidekick will compliment their personality, allowing them to work as a 'team' better.

    Should any that aren't on 'Fiery Redhead' or 'Redheads Are Uncool' and that apply be moved?

    I don't understand the question. Maybe if you rephrase it. The Ginger Sidekick sounds like it is an uncool redhead. Moved where?

    Should any examples on this list here but not on either Fiery Redhead or Redheads Are Uncool - and that should really be - be moved to the one of those two tropes that they should be on?

    ^^^ Still doesn't show anything relevant to being a sidekick.

    Discarding this as not a trope.

    Also, I think norsic is talking about redheads that are neither fiery nor uncool but are still a sidekick.

Three days must pass before this YKTTW is Launchworthy or Discardable
