  • The 7 Greatest Sidekicks in the Star Wars Universe

    star wars side kicks 2048x680

    May the Fourth Be with You, 7th Floor Friends!

    While it may not be a national holiday (yet), we take Star Wars Day,” as it’s sometimes called, VERY seriously around here. In honor of our second-favorite holiday, and in honor of the sweet deals you can get right now on our LifeSaber and SideKick handheld vaporizers, we thought it would be a good time to unveil our unofficial list of the 7 Best Star Wars Sidekicks.

    Well, it's official to us. But it's not canon.

    Before we get started, it should be mentioned that your favorite sidekicks may not be on the list. But that’s okay! If you think we overlooked someone, tell us who you think should’ve made the cut (and why) in the comments below. You’ll also notice that there are no Jedi or Sith on the list. Wielding The Force is a pretty clear guarantee that nobody will ever really call you a “sidekick.”

    Oh and, obviously, SPOILERS AHEAD. Let’s get started!

     


     

    Number 7: Bib Fortuna

    Bib Fortuna from the Star Wars Wikia

    With a name that sounds suspiciously like a seafood pasta dish, Bib Fortuna is number 7 on our sidekick list, if not only for his blind loyalty. Bibby was right-hand man to Hutt crime boss Jabba. And it’s easy to see why. Jabba managed to find the only dude in the Outer Rim Territories who’d hit as many branches on his way down the ugly tree as Jabba himself had. Yikes.

    Cold, calculating, and disturbingly pink, majordomo Fortuna watched a young Anakin Skywalker put a pod race smack-down on Sebulba in Episode I. Then, farther into the Galactic Civil War, Bib was introduced to the next generation of Skywalkers. After watching his boss capture and enslave Princess Leia during a failed Han Solo rescue attempt, Bib Fortuna solidified his place in cinematic history as the worst door guard ever. He let Luke Skywalker into the Hutt Hut while Jabba was fast asleep. This kicked off a long string of events that lead to Jabba and Bibby both meeting an untimely end.

     


     

    Number 6: Bo-Katan

    Bo-Katan from the Star Wars Wikia.

    Bo-Katan Kryze sets the standard for badassery on her homeworld of Mandalore. One-time assistant to Governer Pre Vizsla in the Mandalorian terror cell Death Watch, Bo-Katan ended up on the right side of the history after aligning with the Jedi and even driving a power-hungry Darth Maul off her planet.

    She’s basically the Star Wars equivalent of Batman – wielding grappling hooks, dart launchers, a jetpack, and her trademark dual blaster pistols, Bo-Katan was a deadly warrior. Plus she touched a darksaber once. That’s like our dream come true.

     


     

    Number 5: Sabé

    Sabé from the Star Wars Wikia.

    This royal handmaiden to Queen Amidala makes our list of the best Star Wars sidekicks for her flawless decoy skills. Posing as the queen, Sabé tricked the Federation as Viceroy Nute Gunray offered up a treaty that would legalize their invasion. And she played the part of the Queen while negotiating with the Gungan forces, too.

    So basically, she ensured that Queen Amidala was safe in crisis situations. Which in turn meant that Amidala and Anakin could get down, which means that Luke Skywalker could be born, which means Mark Hamill could play him, which means he could get super-famous, which means he could have a Twitter account that’s super-famous, which means we could enjoy his tweets while researching articles about sidekicks.

     


     

    Number 4: BB-8

    BB-8 from the Star Wars Wikia.

    This 40lb. bundle of astromech droid awesomeness singlehandedly clued us in to the fact that The Force Awakens was going to be an awesome movie. And it’s no wonder Poe Dameron chose BB as his right-hand droid. Besides being equipped with a holoprojector, an arc welder, and a torch, BB-8 keeps a tight eye on Poe’s jacket. And it’s a fly jacket.

    BB-8 and his human, Poe, saved the day during the assault on Starkiller Base, pulling off a Skywalkeresque move that caused the planet-weapon’s core to destabilize. This lead to some pretty satisfying special effects and solidified BB-8’s place in our hearts and on this list.

     


     

    Number 3: Nien Nunb

    Nien Nunb from the Star Wars Wikia.

    Ol’ Pancake Face. Where do we even begin? Firstly, Nien gets cool points just for being loosely associated with Lando Calrissian. You don’t walk into the presence of coolness and walk away unchanged. With a storied rebellion career that spanned 3 decades, Nien Nunb was around for some of the most crucial (and awesome) moments in the entire Star Wars saga.

    He co-piloted the Millenium Falcon with Calrissian during the battle of Endor, rescued a bunch of Alderaanians, developed a serious reputation as a master smuggler, and was one of just 7 surviving X-wing pilots after the assault on Starkiller base. Plus, he looks awesome as LEGO.

     


     

    Number 2: R2-D2

    R2-D2 from the Star Wars Wikia.

    Luke’s sidekick and everyone’s favorite chirpy, ultra-handy droid Artoo managed to go his whole life with no memory wipe. This left him with an unmistakably masculine, adventurous, and fun-loving attitude. From serving the likes of Queen Amidala, Bail Organa, Anakin Skywalker, and ultimately to Luke himself, Artoo was front-and-center for many of the major moments in galactic history. As if that wasn’t cool enough, Artoo even appeared in an episode of Sesame Street in the 1970s. Unfortunately, though, Oscar didn’t pop out of Artoo. Hashtag missed opportunity.

    Artoo is often ranked as the best robot ever from film or television, even being inducted into the Robot Hall of Fame in 2003. And it’s easy to see why. His arc welder, buzz-saw, flawless hologram skills, and his confusing but ultimately useful rocket boosters helped provide a level of comic relief and relatability we’d never felt for a robot before or since. Our 3.5’ mechanical buddy has stolen a place in our hearts for good.

     


     

    Number 1: Chewbacca

    Chewbacca from the Star Wars Wikia.

    Topping our list of Star Wars Sidekicks is 7 and a half feet of brown-haired, blue-eyed awesomeness. Chewie defines the perfect sidekick to a tee – he’s loyal, tough, resourceful, a great shot, and speaks mostly in unintelligible growls and howls. Chewie has done it all - Wookie warrior, resistance fighter, pilot, smuggler, and general of Kashyyk forces alongside the legendary Master Yoda. Our favorite Wookie has played vital roles in the overthrowing of the Galactic Empire, all the while playing the perfect wing man to Han Solo. There’s a pun in there somewhere – wing man, sidekick, pilot. You get it.

    Puns aside, Chewie held his own against the nastiest baddies the galaxy had to offer with his trusty, custom bowcaster. Which is easily the coolest weapon a non-Jedi or non-Sith could ever hope to hold. Underneath his rough, hirsute exterior is the heart of a lover and a warrior. That’s why Chewie is all aces in our book!

    So how did we do? Did your favorite sidekicks make the cut? Let us know in the comments below or on social media which Star Wars sidekicks are your favorite!
