YMMV / Sidekick Girl

  • Moment of Awesome: Everyone, please rise to give a standing ovation to Illumina, who, when she met her traitor sidekick, knocked her out with one punch. This is Illumina we're talking about here, so extra awesome.
    • An even bigger Moment of Awesome is when a rogue agent with gravity-based powers starts destroying both Hero and Villain agency headquarters. The agent turns out to be Illumina's supposedly dead brother. Not only is she the only one able to resist his gravity powers, but she manifests gravity powers of her own and knocks him out with one blow.
  • Never Live It Down: Illumina has a reputation for getting sidekicks killed. Only one, Marina, actually died, and that was due to a voluntary Heroic Sacrifice on Marina's part, not anything Illumina did. The departures of the two others also didn't have anything to do with Illumina herself. The first, Sparkle, turned out to be a bitch and suddenly left in the middle of a firefight, and the second, Forever Boy, went insane because Not Growing Up Sucks.
