Willow is not Buffy's sidekick

I'd like to request the removal from this page of the part of the entry on Buffy the Vampire Slayer which claims that this trope applies to Willow telling Buffy 'I'm not your sidekick.' This example does not qualify as Wrong Genre Savvy, because rather than it being a character misunderstanding the genre of the show they're in, it's a character establishing themselves as more nuanced than such a hierarchical trope as Sidekick. In my opinion the troper who posted that example has confused Wrong Genre Savvy with Subverted Trope, because Willow is not Buffy's sidekick.

Pulled it - while it's possible that that entry qualifies for this trope, that context does not allow us to tell.
